Duskwood – Abercrombie Hard Heroic Mission Guide

What are Heroic Missions?

Heroic missions are missions unlocked upon obtaining 50 sigils. They need to be cleared once per faction, so aim to get at least one leader per faction as you progress through the game. The heroic missions are more difficult than their non-heroic counterparts, often employing a gimmick on the map or featuring an initial push that you need to defend.

Why do Heroic Missions?

Clearing a heroic mission rewards you with 3 tomes of experience for your troops as well as a sigil upon completing it once. You need to clear them 4 more times, each with different leaders from the remaining factions. Upon clearing them, you receive 300 coins for your efforts. It is quite rewarding and will be your main source of income in the end game.

Recommended Minis


A trio of fragile Fliers, but if they can reach their target, they will shred it in seconds.

Defias Bandits

Stealthy and weak on their own, but will sneak up and Stun enemies while your damage dealers open fire!

Defias bandits are amazing minis capable of generating value depending on the mini they're up against. They deploy stealthed, so the enemy doesn't even know they are coming. They stun upon hitting, and they are especially effective when used near a tower, allowing the tower to land hits while the enemy is stunned. They can also stun bosses, making them quite useful, especially if the boss has a lot of range.

Unlocking their poison talent increases their damage, further demoralizing enemy players who see their high-cost mini go down to a 1-cost mini. Additionally, they can be used to pick up chests and for cycling minis at a very low cost.

Deadly Poison BEST
Gain Poison.
Pick Lock
Earn an extra +2 Gold when opening chests.
Last Resort
On death, Stun the target for 3 seconds.

Darkspear Troll

This headhunter deals massive damage with savage spear throws. Enemies in the air beware!

The Darkspear Troll is one of the best anti-air units in the game. It boasts excellent range and damage, often one-shotting flying units. Additionally, it is surprisingly bulky, thanks to its regeneration talent.

Regenerate 10% health every second.
On kill, increase Attack and Movement speed by 10%. Stacks to 50%.
Serpent Sting
Gain Poison.


Surprise your enemies with this Unbound Melee burrower! Slow to emerge but bristling for a fight.

Unlocking its 'Tunnel Vision' talent enables faster deployment, providing a significant advantage. Its versatility allows it to excel in any deck, contributing to its high-tier ranking.

Deal a small amount of damage to Melee attackers.
Tunnel Vision BEST
Deploy much more quickly.
Bramble Burst
Inflict Poison on nearby enemies when emerging.

How to Clear

This stage is surprisingly easy to clear, even though it's a hard stage. Simply manage the Giant Abomination on the left lane, and you should easily clear it. Units like Harpies, Whelps, and Defias Bandits make light work of the Abomination. Don't let it reach the meeting stone! Then, focus on taking the tower on the right and advancing your army towards the boss. Distract the boss with Quilboar when they are in range, and it should go down quickly.
