Description

The Dominatrix captures enemies, turning them against their former allies. Multiple Dominatrix can capture a single target faster, although only one becomes the controller. After taking control of a unit the Dominatrix cannot fire for 12 seconds. If a Dominatrix is destroyed all units it controls are freed.

Tactics and Strategy[edit]

Note that the Dominatrix's capture dps is pitted against the target's metal cost instead of its HP. This means that, for example, a single Dominatrix (which has a capture dps of 78) takes about 10.9 seconds to capture an enemy Minotaur (which costs 850 metal).

To prolong the life span of your frail Dominatrices, try escorting them with at least 1 Aspis, along with an Iris to help keep enemy artillery from skirmishing your Dominatrices to death. Be warned that, like with other shield balls, such a combination is asking to be countered with Firewalkers, Imps, Snitches, Thunderbirds, or Likhos to name a few.
