This hero commands an array of microbots, having a total of forty, replacing where an ammo count would be. Damage dealt by this hero’s basic attacks are determined by (Base Damage x Inactive Microbots). As a result, this hero has a very low base damage. If all microbots are inactive, her damage output is at its maximum, and vice versa; if all microbots are active, she can deal no damage via basic attacks. Despite this, she has no magazine size nor reload rate.

Love the complexity of the character’s abilities and how the damage works with the micro bots. Say, could she make cookie bots like from Despicable Me?

I didn’t think about that, but I suppose so. Cookie disco dance parties all the way!
