Info[edit | edit source]

No city is more pious in its worship of Sol than Arasunia, and no man is more fervent among its zealous citizens than the Witch Slayer. Although he is viewed with uncertainty by the Beast shamans and human sorcerers in the Legion, his combat prowess and holy powers make him a mighty ally. Wielding a musket and a bladed icon of Sol, he not only can hold his own in battle, but also can sap his enemy's strength and turn any ground into sacred territory.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

[ Q ]
Witch Slayer Graveyard.jpg
Cast Time: 0.3 / 0.2 seconds
Target Dual Organic Enemy Units
Type - Magic
Most at home on holy ground, the Witch Slayer creates a temporary Graveyard in front of himself. Enemy units caught in its creation suffer the consequences.
Range: 500
Mana Cost: 100/120/140/160
Cooldown: 12 seconds
Creates a Graveyard for 700 units in the target direction. Any enemies hit will fly into the air for 0.5 seconds and are stunned for 0.8/1.2/1.6/2 seconds when they land, taking 80/140/200/260 Magic Damage.
It's your funeral.
  • Graveyard has a touch radius of 150, and can hit units up to 850 units away.
  • The initial 0.5 second knockup is a non-reducible stun.
  • Stuns for a total of 1.3/1.7/2.1/2.5 seconds.
  • Graveyard is the only Target Dual ability where the range does not match the maximum distance. This was done intentionally to compensate for the projectile speed.
