Carrie

She is a hero whose strengths lie in reducing enemies’ energy and dodging their attacks…


She is a hero whose strengths lie in reducing enemies’ energy and dodging their attacks. Her active, Energy Devouring, allows her to deal damage to several enemies in proportion to their current energy (the more energy they have, the more damage she deals). Also, it has a chance to place a Devouring Mark on them. This mark will trigger once the marked enemy reaches 100 energy. This will deal damage to that enemy, as well as reduce their energy to zero. This makes her exceptionally potent against heroes who heavily rely on their active skills. Her Darkness Befall passive allows her to dodge the enemy’s active skills and basic attacks. Outburst of Magic, her second passive, grants her the ability to reduce the energy of anyone she hits with her basic attack to zero. To top things off, her Shadow Spirit passive enables her to revive with full HP and energy a while after being killed.


Amen-Ra

Her main strengths are shielding her allies and petrifying enemies…


Her main strengths are shielding her allies and petrifying enemies. Her active skill, Shadow Defense, deals damage to front line enemies with a chance of petrifying them. Also, it applies a shield to each of her allies. This shield completely negates the damage of the next attack they receive and turns it into healing instead. This is great against heroes that heavily rely on burst damage. Thanks to her Aura of Despair, Amen-Ra reduces the duration of crowd control effects on herself, and that makes her particularly effective against heroes specialized in controlling their enemies. Lastly, her Healing Charm causes her basic attacks to apply Healing Curse. This curse turns the next healing effect on that target into damage, which is amazing against heroes heavily reliant on healing.


Tara

Tara is specialized in locking down enemies from using their passive skills as well as dealing good AoE damage…


Tara is specialized in locking down enemies from using their passive skills as well as dealing good AoE damage. His active, Seal of Light, attacks a single target several times, dealing damage and afflicting them with a layer of Power of Light, with a chance of inflicting an additional layer. When these layers stack to two, the target will be unable to use their passive skills for a few rounds. This makes Tara incredibly strong against heroes that heavily rely on their passive skills. His Power of Seal passive enables his basic attacks to apply Power of Light. Fluctuation of Light allows Tara to deal a high amount of armor-ignoring damage against all enemies every time he uses his active skill or basic attack. Furthermore, this passive has a chance of inflicting one layer of Power of Light, which makes him even more deadly against certain types of heroes.


Aida

On top of all this, her Final Verdict deals damage to all enemies whenever a round ends, and also reduces the healing effects on them while restoring Aida’s HP in the process.

Also, when enemies attack him, he steals a percentage of their attack for a few rounds, making it even harder for them to take him down. On top of that, this also gives him a chance to taunt the target. Finally, Energy Overload heals him at the end of each round. After a few rounds, he will receive a Rampage effect. This guarantees all of his skills and basic attacks to crit, and it also prevents his attacks from being blocked.
