Strategy[edit | edit source]

The Steelforge is a colorless unit that requires the player to sacrifice a Blastforge to be built. Its AbilityAbility allows you to efficiently convert your Drones into Steelsplitters for 1GoldBlue resourceBlue resource (Goldgold and Blue resourceblue). As Steelforge has Health4 health it can not be targeted by the Apollo's AbilityAbility (or Kinetic Driver's for that matter), so building Steelforge can save your Blue resourceblue production from being sniped at a critical moment.

Buying Steelforge instead of a second Blastforge is virtually always correct unless there are Blastforge-synergy units such as Drake or Grenade Mech as it's essentially just a 1-gold cheaper Blastforge even without its ability.

Steelforge's click ability is significantly more efficient than buying Steelsplitters directly, but still less efficient than most random set attackers, so buying multiple Steelforges just to mass produce Steelsplitters is not recommended. The ability mostly acts as a blue sink.

When you use the Steelforge's AbilityAbility you should not buy new Drones to replace the converted ones as they won't have time to pay for themselves, so you should rather invest your Resources to buy more Attackattack.

Note that if the Random set contains more Drone consuming units like Plasmafier, you should be careful about combining them as they may reduce your Drone count down fast.
