The Forest Giant

The Forest Giant’s primary use, as you’ve no doubt guessed, is in the creation of Forests. The Forest Giant is also the source of Food plants and can upgrade plants in a number of ways through his two Aspect abilities. The forest Giant’s Fertilise power is also a handy early game tool.

Power 7 - Migrate

  • Level 3: 2 Swamp and 1 (Any) Ambassadors

Choosing Ambassadors

To unlock all his abilities the Forest Giant would need 3 Forest Ambassadors, 2 Desert Ambassadors and 2 Swamp ambassadors. Forest is the type most prominent across all upgrades, so it’s recommended that you nab one of them first. Where you look next depends on what you’re upgrading as a Desert ambassador would open the Hunt Aspect (and upgrade your fertilize ability) but a Swamp Ambassador would upgrade Leaf Aspect.

The Migrate ability should not dictate your decision and, in truth, can be largely ignored. With that in mind, one Swamp Ambassador can be cut off the required list, meaning you’re after 3 Forest, 2 Desert and 1 Swamp to make the most of the Forest Giant.
