The Swamp Giant is the amorphous king of the bayou, and, contrary to red-neck stereotyping, this also casts him as the lord of Technology. If you need Tech then the Swamp Giant is normally the go-to chap, but with that said his wealthy animals aren’t to be sniffed at.

Choosing Ambassadors

3 Swamp, 2 Forest and 2 Desert would be the requirements for everything Swamp, so as always your intended upgrade path should be what encourages your ambassador pick-ups. With this said we do recommend grabbing a Swamp Ambassador sharpish; the majority of the Swamp Giant’s abilities require at least one swamp dwelling electorate being present, particularly his upgraded base abilities.

Diversity is your friend, though, as grabbing either a Desert or Forest Ambassador as number two will unlock the second tier of either the Swamp Ambassador’s Plants or Animals. The Ambassador you choose is a double whammy, though, unlocking an aspect alongside the ability, so choose the appropriate ambassadors for the abilities you’ll need.
