Once it is summoned, scattered units are stunned for four seconds and are unable to defend themselves. This makes enemy units vulnerable to attack. Shockwave can either disperse a meat shield, allowing the player's own soldiers to pick out individual units, or make raiding more efficient by preventing Villagers from escaping as quickly. The power itself does little to no damage so shouldn't be used if it can't be followed up with an attack. However, it can also be used defensively such as saving Citizens from an enemy raid. This power can be used 3 times but has a recharge time of 5 minutes.
