The Scavenger Room allows you to steal enemy creatures and turn them to your side. It can also attract new creatures to your Dungeon arriving from a Portal.

After placing a creature into the Scavenger Room, it will begin to dance around the center of the room casting its evil influence around the map. Targets the lowest level creatures of its type first before looking further afield for other creatures.

Each creature placed in the room takes up one tile, and each additional creature added, especially of the same type, will greatly increase the chances and speed of your side scavenging a new creature.

Also bear in mind your opponents often can and will try to do the same to you. Creatures held in the Prison Icon Small Prison cannot be scavenged, and placing one type of creature inside the Temple Icon Small Temple will immunize that creature and 2 others of its kind, e.g. if you own 6 Warlock-icon Warlocks and one is being scavenged, placing 2 Warlock-icon Warlocks inside the temple to pray will protect all of your Warlock-icon Warlocks.

When a creature switches sides and joins the ranks of your minions, it instantly becomes happy as it has a new master. Scavenging creatures consumes a lot of gold, much more than training.

The scavenger room is a room filled with flailing eyes chanting "join us", "come with us", and "we will teach you things of evil".

  • High level creatures can scavenge low level creatures easily and in turn are hard to be scavenged themselves.
  • Imprisoned creatures and those praying in the Temple Icon Small Temple cannot be scavenged.
  • When a creature is scavenged, there is a sparkle of the scavenging team's colour where the creature was, and a scavenged team's coloured sparkle in the Scavenger room it is transported to. Unclaimed creatures on the map will appear with a white sparkle.
  • Good anti-scavenging tactics include shielding your creatures by placing them in the Temple Icon Small Temple or Prison Icon Small Prison, while using SightofEvil Icon Small Sight of Evil (if available) to find their Scavenger Rooms and disrupt the creatures inside using spells such as CaveIn Icon Small Cave-In or Trap Lightning Small Lightning Strike.
  • If you are watching over a creature with the Query tool and they are Scavenged, you will still be following them and have information about them, but this does not allow you to see through the Fog of War.
