Background:
Forged from Dwarven steel and infused with an ancient fire spirit – The Furnace rumbles, roars, scorches, and occasionally explodes.


ThaliaPortrait Small
The Furnace burninates the countryside and pretty much all of his enemies. He'd probably be bad for thatched-roof cottages, too.

How to Use this Hero

Uses in PVP

The Furnace is often used in Dungeon Defense. It's first action is to Stoke the Boiler Icon Stoke the Boiler . This adds the buff "Fired Up: All damage done also does additional Fire damage" to all team mates and additionally a Taunt buff on the Furnace. As a result an attacker needs to remove both buffs from the Furnace to get rid of the Taunt effect. Abilities like Shadowblade token 0 Shadowblade's From the Shadows Icon From the Shadows only remove the first applied buff (Fired Up). But a Smite Icon Smite attack of Augustus the paladin token 0 Augustus, or a Theft of Grace Icon Theft of Grace performed by Malice Token Malice will do the trick. Viperia token 0 Viperia's Snakes on the Plains Snakes on the Plains can purge multiple buffs of a single target, too.

Notes and Tips

The Furnace is the 53th Hero and the first Construct in Dungeon Boss released in March 2016.

This Hero was obtainable only for a short period of time (3 days) by a Portal Summon Gem Heroic Portal Summon.

Being a construct, The Furnace can only be repaired, several ways to do this can be with Dagrund token Dagrund Blacksmoke's ability Dwarven EMT Icon Dwarven EMT , Bauble's basic attack, IFF Targeting Icon IFF Targeting and Bauble's first ascension ability, Positive Charge Icon Positive Charge , which heals and repairs.

His old description was a direct reference to the Strong Bad song "Trogdor the Burninator". "Burninating the countryside, Burninating the peasants, Burninating all the peoples in the thatched roof cottages"
