Pristine Unicorns are rare, even in Irollan. They are found in only one place, on the shores of the Sun Crystal Lake. Unlike the other Unicorns, they are not sacred to Sylanna, but to Elrath, Dragon-God of the Light.OffBck

The pristine unicorn is the alternate upgrade to the unicorn, the fifth-level creature of the Sylvan town, in Heroes of Might and Magic V: Tribes of the East.

The biggest difference between the pristine unicorn and the silver unicorn, is that instead of Aura of Magic Resistance, the pristine unicorn has Child of the Light instead. It won't protect itself or its allies from hostile magic, but it will gain any Light Magic boosts that the enemy uses. This is great if the Unicorn is your main attacker, but if you have treants, using the Silver Unicorn's Aura to protect them may be more useful.


  • Large Creature - This creature is bigger than others and occupies four squares on the field.
  • Blinding Attack - When this creature attacks the enemy, there is a chance that it will blind it in addition to inflicting regular damage. Blinded creatures cannot move or attack, but regain sight if attacked.
  • Child of the Light - Any Light magic spell, except damage-dealing ones, cast by anyone, will also be applied on this creature on Expert level.
