New Hero Concept: Vale - The Freelance Archer (5 Star Hero)

Element: Mechanical
Faction: Mercenary
Position: Rearline

HP: 3/5
Armor: 3/5
Damage: 5/5
Skills: 4/5


Growing up with an extreme talent with bows and older weapons, Alex Hood loved partacting in different archery events throughout the years. After winning her 37th tournament, Alex was politely asked to stop competing, to give others the chance to win. Looking for another way to use her gifts, Alex decided to make a living out of them.

After taking on her first job as a freelancer, Alex quickly made a name for herself in the mercenary community. Going by the code name Vale, many came to fear even whispers of her name. Using her archery skills, she moves from client to client, with each job seeming to always be more difficult than the last. Equip with a high powered crossbow, any target she is assigned to is quickly eliminated.

“It’s a cruel world we live in, and we can’t be afraid to get our hands dirty.” - Alex “Vale” Hood.

Shooting Rate: 5 rounds per second
Ammunition Capacity: 15
Recharge Time: 2.5 seconds
Damage: High




Bronze Ability: Arrowhead

  • Shoots a heavy round from her weapon into the targeted enemy, dealing an increased x Damage, and completely depleting all shield from the target.

Silver Ability: Old Fashioned

  • Vale pulls a bow from off her back, and switches to it as her weapon. The bow deals damage equal to 10% of the target’s current health. The bow has an arrow capacity of 5.

  • The arrow capacity increases by 1 every 25 levels.

Example

If the enemy has 1,000,000 health, and Vale’s bow deals damage equal to 10% of the enemies current health, then the first shot would deal 100,000 damage.

That would leave the enemy with 900,000 health. The new shot from her bow, still doing damage equal to 10% of the enemies current health, would now deal 90,000. After that, the arrows would then deal 80,000 damage, then 70,000, and so on.

The damage dealt by the arrows are never the same. It will always depend on how much health the enemy has.

Gold Ability: Bullseye

  • If Arrowhead damages a target who is under 50% health, Vale fires off a second shot dealing an additional x Damage.

Platinum Ability: Rebound

  • Whenever an enemy is killed, Old Fashioned’s cooldown is decreased by 40%.

Ruby Ability: Doing Damage

  • The difference between a good DPS Hero and a great DPS Hero lies in the amount of damage they can dish out. This Hero receives a x Elemental Attack Damage bonus, as well as a 30% Skill Charge bonus for their Bronze Skill.

Vale’s costume is very nice to become Mauler legendary skins or even mythic…

:wink:

Agreed, I can see a “Robin Hood” skin fitting well with Mauler.

Sweet crossbow! Paired with a team shield and Vale could be devastating. I’m curious on the shot speed whether Vale will be better suited for manual or auto but the shooting rate does sound promising for an archer.

If you were to hold down the fire button, Marian’s Cross would shoot approximately 5 arrows per second. The weapon itself has a heavy recoil in between shots, so manual play would probably be better than auto in this case, as manually playing, you can take time between shots to realign your target. To add to that, tapping you shots for Vale would work a lot better than holding would in terms of being most effective in dealing damage quickly and efficiently.
