Heroes have one of three primary attributes: Strength attribute symbol Strength, Agility attribute symbol Agility, and Intelligence attribute symbol Intelligence. Every point added to a hero's primary attribute increases that hero's attack damage.

Strength attribute symbol Strength[]

Strength heroes are tough warriors and can withstand more damage than other heroes. These heroes have the greatest natural health and can regenerate quickly, keeping them in the fight and dealing damage. Strength heroes can fit a variety of roles, with many being initiators or heavy disablers, and are almost always Melee melee heroes.

Hero Description Updated
Axe icon
Axe
One by one the soldiers of the Red Mist fell, some in battle, others to Mogul Khan's ambitions, until the self-declared general found himself a commander without troops. "No matter", Axe thought, "For a one-man army is the best army of all." — Leaping into battle, Mogul Khan compels nearby foes to attack him with a taunting Berserker's Call. Absorbing blows from every direction, the indomitable Axe reacts by swinging his axe full circle in a Counter Helix, easily dispatching the swarm he had gathered. But alas, not all stay long enough to meet their end. The few limping away from Mogul Khan feel an inexplicable Battle Hunger, a hunger never sated before Axe slams his Culling Blade through a weakened enemy, sending them to an early grave. Axe, Axe is always charging onward. 7.35

The enforcer at a local pub, Rigwarl's never failed to collect a tab. That is, until he met one tough customer from the north. For the first time in his life, Rigwarl felt the need to train.

With every volley and every Sneeze, Rigwarl works himself into a fury, adding rage to each blow as he goes on the Warpath in search of a rematch. 7.35b
Centaur Warrunner icon
Centaur Warrunner
Some write to express their being, others paint or sing. But for the centaurs of Druud, there is no higher art than the art of killing. And in that, none was more accomplished than Bradwarden. With skills acquired in the arena, the Warrunner punishes his opponents and instantly Retaliates their every attack, disregarding harm to himself as he metes out a fearsome Double Edge. Ever in search of a worthy opponent, the Work Horse rouses his allies, and sometimes Hitching them on his back for a ride, to charge down enemies in a wild Stampede, quickening the pace of the carnage. Once battle is joined, the Centaur Warrunner Stomps and tramples surrounding foes, stunning them just long enough for his battleaxe to sink in. 7.35d
Chaos Knight icon
Chaos Knight
Upon the black steed Armageddon, the Chaos Knight rode into countless battles with a single purpose in mind: To extinguish that which he knows as "The Light". Like a roll of unseen dice, the oldest Fundamental stuns his targets with a Chaotic Bolt, and then Strikes with life-stealing attacks that deal highly irregular amounts of damage. Those who escape the initial onslaught find themselves in a Reality Rift, reappearing inexplicably at Armageddon's side, exposed for its rider's wrath. Flanked by several images of himself, the Chaos Knight and his apocalyptic Phantasms hack their opponents apart with the strength of multiple heroes. 7.35d

She revels in her signature move, the Starbreaker, hurling through multiple foes and then Converging with it in a blazing wake, always waiting to tap her true cosmic power as a Solar Guardian to fly to the aid of her teammates — eager to rout her enemies on the battlefield no matter where they are. 7.35
Doom icon
Doom
Wings branded and visage twisted, the Fallen One bears little resemblance to his former self. Banished from the realm of light, Lucifer now walks the earth, bringing misery to all who stand against him. The towering demon Devours creeps in a single bite, digesting them whole and assimilating their abilities. The fires of Hell smolder at Lucifer's feet, leaving in his wake fields of Scorched Earth. When the bell of Vashundol tolls, an enemy's downfall is sure to follow. Raising his Infernal Blade, Lucifer places upon his adversary an enduring curse, burning away at its health and rendering it utterly powerless as it staggers towards its inevitable Doom. 7.35c
Dragon Knight icon
Dragon Knight
As Sir Davion slew Slyrak in arranged combat, the Eldwurm's blood mingled with his own, sealing their essences together. He was no longer a dragon-slayer, but a Dragon Knight. The infusion of Dragon Blood caused his wounds to heal with inhuman speed, and granted him great new powers. While nowhere as grand as Slyrak, he found himself with the ability to Breathe Fire and launch Fireballs, immolating packs of foes at once. But when Davion took on his Elder Dragon Form, he became the formidable Eldwurm itself, and upon his awestruck enemies he rained projectiles of acid, fire, and ice. 7.35d

Elder Titan icon
Elder Titan
Even the greatest of Titans err in their work. Trapped in his own flawed creation, the Worldsmith seeks forever to repair the fissured planes. His Natural Order reduces all to its base, disintegrating whatever defenses his foes layer themselves with. From a hidden plane, the Elder Titan draws aspects of himself, summoning his Astral Sprit, sending this ghostly form through bodies and past defenses. Once positioned, an Echo Stomp rings out from both Titan and Spirit, knocking unconscious all in its wake. The battlefield cracks under the Titan's forge hammer, and a glimpse of creation is seen as the Earth Splitter rends the ground asunder. For what the Worldsmith makes, he can also unmake. 7.35
Legion Commander icon
Legion Commander
Renowned for her intrepid defense of Stonehall, the commander of the Bronze Legion swore a brutal vengeance upon its Abyssal Invaders. The call of Tresdin's horn Heals, Hastens and Inspires her soldiers. Faced with Overwhelming Odds, the commander calls down a spread of arrows from the archers of Stonehall. But above all, Tresdin relishes these one-on-one Duels. Locked in single combat, and with a Moment of Courage, she counter-strikes instinctively, slashing twice in the time her opponent takes to swing once. With each victory claimed, the Legion Commander adds to her strength, scaling her potential upwards without limit, until at last she can be a relentless one-woman army. 7.35
Lifestealer icon
Lifestealer
What was once a man is now little more than a husk, its mind long since departed from lifetimes of imprisonment. Or has it? Now on the loose, N'aix appears to be driven by a new purpose, although what precisely that is, none would know. The Lifestealer Feasts on raw flesh, nourishing himself with every attack while inflicting grievous Open Wounds that make escape near impossible. By sheer ferocity, or perhaps a Ghoulish Frenzy, N'aix flies into a Rage, intensifying his assault while defying all wizardry.

Agility heroes are finessed and dexterous, making them masters of weapons and fighting techniques. These heroes have high attack speed and armor, and focus on using their regular attacks in conjunction with the items they have equipped, but can fall back on their abilities in a pinch. Agility heroes are often played in carry and ganker roles, because of how well they scale.

Hero Description Updated
Clinkz icon
Clinkz
As Clinkz loosed his final arrow, the demon Maraxiform ignited the land with Hellfire, burning him to the bone. Yet, the heroic bowman did not die. He had slain the demon, and unwittingly earned king-mage Sutherex's reward — Eternal life. Immortalized at the precipice of death, Clinkz now makes advantageous use of his skeletal body. Camouflaged, he walks into hostile lands, forming Death Pacts with wildlife to learn their ways and empower his shots and vitality. The demon's inferno burns within his ribs, with which he now rains Fiery Death upon his foes, Searing His Arrows to devastating effect. When backup is needed, Clinkz calls upon a Burning Army of skeletal compatriots, incinerating his foe in flames of their Hellfire barrage. 7.35
Hoodwink icon
Hoodwink
Always at hand when trouble's afoot, Hoodwink lives to tangle with the threats that fill the haunted forest she adopted as her home. A natural Sharpshooter toting a massive crossbow and firing Acorn Shots while still able to Scurry through the woodland with the greatest of ease, Hoodwink is nearly impossible to keep tabs on in battle and Bushwhacks her foes when they least expect her to. Losing track of her once, she will use the opportunity to mislead her foes by sending out a Decoy, only to pop out holding her Boomerang behind them — their stunned carcasses already dangling in one of her nets. 7.35d
Luna icon
Luna
Renouncing her savage past, Luna swore her service to Selemene, and embraced the title of Moon Rider. The goddess bestows a Lunar Blessing on her new champion, boosting her strength and heightening her nocturnal senses. Saddled on top of Nova, her beastly mount, Luna bounds across the Nightsilver Woods to smite trespassers with a searing Lucent Beam. Superior numbers are no advantage against the Moon Rider. Through divine will, the midday sun gives way to night, and every foe is struck by rays of lunar energy as Luna tears through their ranks with flying Moon Glaives. By Selemene's wrath or through her own hand, the Moon Rider levels the battlefield under the brief darkness of the Eclipse. 7.34d
Medusa icon
Medusa
Constant attack is the key to Medusa's success. Encased in a Mana Shield, she survives against even the most unfavorable odds.

Scattering his clones throughout the battlefield, The Meepos Bind their foes to the earth, smashing them with their shovels into the ground, Ransacking their vitality for themselves.

Monkey King icon
Monkey King
Always in search of a good fight, Monkey King Dances and travels atop of trees aiming to Spring from leafy cover and surprise his enemies.

He forges a Dark Pact, sacrificing his own lifeblood to dissipate negative energies that damage foes, and frees him from magical constraints.

Hidden and Shrouded in this black haze, Slark escapes the inescapable and is always ready to to gut his enemies with little risk of retribution. 7.35c
Viper icon
Viper
It was foolhardy to try and tame a Netherdrake, a lesson the old wizard learned in death. Freed from his captor, Viper spread his wings and went forth to explore the surface world. With Poison Attacks imbued with virulent liquid, causing joints to harden, crippling foes whether they choose to flee or fight. Nethertoxin spreads throughout their bodies, turning wounds into fatalities, and fatigue into death. The Netherdrake's tough, Corrosive Skin protects against spell-craft, and burns assailants with acid. But it is the dreaded Viper Strike that signals the beginning of the end. The afflicted victim staggers to a crawl, barely able to take its next step. If the Netherdrake doesn't finish his targets off, the venom in their veins will. 7.35c
Weaver icon
Weaver
All Weavers worked to maintain the fabric of creation, save one Skitskurr, who took it upon himself to create that which had not been woven. Cast out for his ambitions, Skitskurr was now free from his obligations, free to weave a new reality of his own. Opening a gap in spacetime, the Weaver invites "The Swarm" — young Weavers to latch onto enemies, and nibble away at their armor. Nearly impossible to pin down, he slips into micro-wormholes, passing through enemies and reappearing with Shukuchi. The fabric of time frays around Skitskurr, occasionally replaying, causing his Geminate Attacks to be witnessed — and felt — more than once. The Weaver takes brinkmanship to an extreme. Fighting to the verge of death, Skitskurr turns back the clock with Time Lapse, reversing his injuries and undoing his foes' efforts, much to their dismay. 7.34e

Intelligence attribute symbol Intelligence[]

Intelligence heroes are masters of spells and abilities. They tend to have larger mana pools and much greater mana regeneration than other heroes. Because of this, they often rely on their abilities to help allies and harm enemies rather than physical attacks, although some of them utilize their magical powers to heavily enhance their attack capabilities. Most intelligence heroes are fragile Ranged ranged heroes, though this does not necessarily mean they are easy to kill. As a result, they are often played in support, ganker, and pusher roles, while some are played as carries.

The Rain of Destiny shrouds threatened allies while causing harm to enemies.
