Tactics[edit | edit source]
The ranged attack of a Lapse can inflict several points of damage, enough to be a moderate or serious threat to heroes with lower health. Usually, though, at least two or three Lapses need to be engaging the vanguard to be a significant threat. A single Lapse, and often more depending on how much damage the heroes can sustain, should generally be ignored if it is possible to kill a Bulwark, Wrinkler, Cradle, or Twitcher in a single round instead, as those are greater threats. As Lapses are easier to kill, though, if there are a number of them engaging the vanguard, it may be wiser to cull their numbers to something more manageable first.
The shockwave released by Lapses when they die is typically not a meaningful threat unless it will knock a hero into something, in which case it has a chance to not only inflict some damage, but may also stun the hero for a round. But this shockwave also affects Cadence the same way, so if a Lapse's shockwave may knock a more dangerous Cadence into something, it may be worth focusing on the Lapse instead in hopes of stunning the more dangerous foe.
