:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

Griots are supposed to be able to speed up builing production speed by clicking on the building.

however, being a healer unit, they can also garrison inside buildings where able. This creates a conflict as the default action is to garrison and not to inspire.

I can’t seem to find a set of buttons or action that would allow the griot to speed up buildings that it can also garrison.

There probably needs to be a inspire ability button for the griot so that we can manually empower buildings, like how pharaohs work in age of mythology.

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Train Griot
  2. Try empowering a palace

Hi @TeenagedApple0!

This is not happening on our side, it seems that Griot inspire by default. Maybe you have a different configuration? Could you provide us more information?


So after double checking, it seems that this behaviour pops up when griots are in a group or grouped with other units, attached a game where I tested this.

Individual griots when clicked to palace with inspire

I still think its good to be able to manually chose whether to inspire or garrison, will help provide some flexibility

BTW we shared to the team your thoughts about the possibility of using the ability manually and they will think about it, thanks!


Griots have an option to inspire “garrisonable” buildings only if you task them to do that before the building is completed. Once you build it, you still have a trumpet as the cursor, but they will go inside the building.
