- "You have heard much of this ancient from the tales of bards though you never believed them to be truth. Your doubts quickly fade as you feel a surge of immense power while you step closer to the pulsing crystal."
+2% Gild damage per level.
The damage added late game by this ancient is crucial to reaching the late game floors. As gilds increase from the mere 50% increase to upwards of 1000%+ per gild, the damage quickly piles on to help you forge onward.
With many gilds in one unit the damage one level in this ancient is roughly +4% per level for that unit (e.g. 100 gilds in unit is 5000% basic damage, then one level in Argaiv boosts 5000/5200 of the whole units' damage).
Argaiv's summon cost is the player's current summon cost.
Argaiv's cost per level is n, with n being equal to the next level.
All costs except the summon cost can be reduced by Chor'gorloth.
Argaiv quickly becomes extremely important in any build, as soon as all gilds are assigned onto one hero. Before this, Argaiv is not very useful to summon.
Argaiv should be leveled equally as much as Fragsworth or Siyalatas, depending on which one is leveled higher. This strategy works best when the base damage from gilds, click damage, and DPS are insignificant compared to the gild, click damage, and DPS bonuses from ancients.
- 'Argaiv' is 'Viagra' spelled backward.
