EVERY hero on how their abilities work from A to L

Okay so this is a very long list probably, here I took the time to explain every single hero that is currently in the game, aaaand on alphabetical order, for people who hate reading, pretend like Arnold zwarchnegger reads this for you, if you like this or have any questions, feel free to ask :slight_smile: also, this actually took me about 8 to 9 hours of constant writing and thinking, and you can see that as the list progresses I kind of get a bit more boring, so enjoy and I hope you learn something new :slight_smile:

A

Alcatraz- his bronze makes him deal a medium amount of damage and root and disable the charging of skills for 8 seconds, his silver makes him strike an enemy and has a 50% to apply a maximum of 3 negative effects which include an 8 second silence, heal block, or damage per second that deals a small amount of damage per second, if he didn’t apply any effects they gain a medium amount of damage, his gold makes his bronze or silver have a 50% chance to copy all negative debuffs and give it to a random ally and deals a small amount of damage, his platinum allows him to deal a big extra amount of damage to rooted enemies

Alvarez - Alvarez is all about stopping your enemy from what they’re doing, having his first ability to make the opponent useless for a big 8 seconds at least, second ability to stun every enemy and get a moment of rest, and then the rest of his abilities help him gain small advantages like healing and decreasing cooldowns

Artemis- artemis is a direct damage dealer, her weapon deals insane amounts of damage while her bronze gets her to hit multiple targets, and her silver marks the enemy and gives a damage buff, while that’s not enough her gold makes her bow even a bit stronger by laying debuffs on your enemies, her platinum makes up for her small health pool with a small health boost and invisibility

Anvil- anvil is mostly about making the enemy weaker by dealing massive bonus damage to shields, his silver makes him shoot an high damage blast that probably oneshots every shield, and his platinum makes his weapon insanely strong to shields, and his gold makes up for his small hp as every time he damages a shield he transfers that damage to a shield for himself

The game has so much depth too than individual heroes. For example one hero’s skill is timed almost perfectly and synergies well with the other like Caine’s Counter Measure being used right before Siren’s Song to protect her. Both skills have almost similar charge time, so Siren if not controlled is unlikely to use her Song while you are waiting for Caine’s Counter Measure skill to charge up.

Francoise and Brogan are more complex but they allow for fun and smart plays if they can use their skills at the right time.

The developers don’t slap skill charge time randomly on heroes, many factors are used and I’m sure that synergy with some heroes and timing is one of them.

Nice work, I’ll take what you have here and improve upon it for the guide! Appreciated by the community.

The title should be: Explaining every heroes skills.
You didn’t even explain how to use them. You have just said more or less what the skill description says. :woman_shrugging::woman_shrugging:

Thanks for the tip, I forgot about it

One day, I’d like to take the time to document the active skill times. It would take all day to go through all 90 heroes, but I would need a partner in crime for this…

I greatly applaud the effort that you took for this post and the follow up post for L-Z. It shows serious dedication to do a post like that, 8-9 hours of continuous writing and it demonstrates that you really really really, REALLY, like Hero Hunters!

That said… I am a bit doubtful about what this would actually achieve since the skill descriptions are all there and can be read by anyone. Paraphrasing skill descriptions and abilities (and seemingly making some errors, too) then makes players need to read more stuff and might actually be more confusing.

Appreciate the effort, though!

Thanks, I really appreciate it :slight_smile:

And indeed my love for this game is unstoppable and I’d love to be able to be something for this community

Cool! That dedication tho! I used to be slightly confused on some skills when I first started (like 3 years ago) so this helps clear things up for newbies, although its a bit of an eyesore with so many text, maybe bolden the hero names?

What do you mean by that?

Like make it a bit tidier so its easier to find the heroes, like make the hero names bold so they stand out.

Sounds good but at some point this post will not be looked after, and also I’ll do my best but it’s tough to edit on posts

Just an idea to keep this from getting buried in a week or 2 would be to put it in a google doc or something and then update it with every new hero. You could then put a link to the latest and greatest doc in the comments of every hero update that you have added to the doc. I can just imagine the time you put into this and it would be a shame for it to be buried in the forum archives.

Most of the information here is already in game in the skills section but none the less I have it saved and have begun editing it. You will likely find something similar in the months coming when the guide is published

Nice to know people are going to improve something I worked hours on and now it’s basically a waste

I am sorry you feel that way, all credit will be given in the guide. If you want me to not use your information here and find it all myself just like you have done so then I have no problem doing that and will respect your wishes. If you create something and put it open to the community then you must expect scrutiny and others to want to make improvements.

I am making my guide yet I don’t expect me to be the only credited writer. I want and expect others to look at my work and see where it can be improved, please try not to take offence.

Im fine with it as long as it’s not forgotten that ive spent my hours on it, if I can help the community I’m fine but you know, my dream has always been to be known to help the community, I try my best at least

Great work, Robert. True labour of love there and I greatly appreciate it.
