Unit Spotlight: The Cynical Imp


Hey folks,

As a few of us all sat in a conference room over the weekend at Rezzed we had one of the brightest ideas we’ve had in ages. Unfortunately we’ve already written our WFTO Wednesday so we’re going to have to grace you with our invention today — we hope you don’t mind two updates this week.


Unit Spotlight: The Cynical Imp

The Cynical Imp will be the standard-bearer behind which all other minions will rally. Who knows what secrets hide beneath that dapper hat? What secrets lie within the twinkling, monocle-covered eye? How on earth does he keep that facial hair so well groomed?

These are all questions that will be answered in due time. For now we hope you will be sated by learning the unique abilities that this worker has at his disposal.



  • FoV Slider (Active): The Cynical Imp can use his monocle to adjust his field of view, allowing him to mine blocks at a great distance.
  • No Requests (Passive): The Cynical Imp knows better than you do, as such he will ignore any and all commands you give and mine whatever blocks he wishes.
  • Copyright Strike (Passive): Any unit that dares attack or insult The Cynical Imp is immediately removed from the game. Sorry about that.


Until next time Underlord,

– WFTO Team
