Calling it a "Vortick," I modified its thoraxial carapace to channel the air into a swirling vortex—much more powerful and minus the unpleasant sounds. (Allow me to digress briefly, for I believe you are wondering if this "vortex" has influenced the name of the vortick. An excellent deduction. I would have expected no less of you.) The vortex casts its victims into the air and subverts any attempts they might make to attack." – The Manual, The Book of Stratos
- "The Vortick doesn't do much damage, but it can keep our enemies off balance." – Zyzyx, The Prophecy (Stratos)
Vortick's name is derived from the words "vortex-", describing Vortick's mode of attack, and "-tick", describing its heritage.
Since they have no specified home, they are presumed to be spread out all over Empyrea.
As an insect, Vortick's taunts are mostly consisted of buzzing and droning.
Abilities and Tactics
Special and Passive Abilities
Passive Abilities: Creates a vortex to lift enemy units into the air. This causes some initial damage, followed up by the damage caused by the subsequent dropping of the victims back to the ground.
Vortick aren't good for much, but they can render enemy wizards useless, and disable enemy creatures for a while. The Vortick's attack is one of the few things in the game that can interrupt a shielded wizard's spell.
