- A weak melee attack that also ages targets by five years.
Wrinklers are more of a strategic than tactical threat, though the aging effect of their attacks may kill older heroes outright. Even though Wrinklers are low threat against young heroes due to their attacks typically inflicting only a couple points of damage, rapidly aging the heroes of the vanguard is still likely a grave threat to the nation's future, so it is usually best if possible to completely avoid receiving any of their attacks. When Wrinklers are on the field, scout carefully in order to locate them before any heroes are within a Wrinkler's movement range, then position enough heroes outside the Wrinkler's movement range to reliably kill it. Even if no heroes are close enough to attack, Wrinklers will still approach the vanguard, and with good positioning, this can give the entire vanguard a chance to kill it before it can attack.
Also, consider researching and equipping your heros with Wünderpants. These neutralize any aging effects from Wrinklers. Often times it is sufficient to give Wünderpants to 1-2 of your heros who then directly engage with Wrinklers and protect the rest of the team.
