King Vel'Assar possesses a powerful combination of abilities that allow him to easily lock down an entire row of enemies alone. Other than skills, the most common way to deal with a Forestall unit is with a ranged unit. However, King Vel'Assar possesses Longbow, an ability outranged by only a select few cards. King Vel'Assar also possesses moderate attack, making it difficult for all but the mightiest of Armor to stop him.
On Awakening, King Vel'Assar gains Heroic, making him extremely dangerous if left alone for too long.
