Hero Spotlight: Solaris

Background:
A hooded figure trudged through the knee-deep snow, his cloak billowing in the wind. He adjusted his hood against the cold, shivering, but couldn’t wipe the evil smirk off his face. Dark Winter was proceeding exactly as his master had planned. Seeking warmth and protection, Forest creatures dove deep into burrows, where the roots of corruption could transform them filling the forest with minions of the Boss of Darkness.

He turned to leave, as the sun rose behind him… but night had just fallen, and behind him was due north. He whipped around to face the light only to see searing flames racing toward him. He dropped behind the nearest snowbank as the world erupted in steam and blazing heat. Swooping overhead, a bird made of pure fire let out a challenging cry. Grimacing, the man stood and drew in a dark power and threw a bolt of raw spirit energy at his foe. The corrupting energy splashed harmlessly off the fiery being eliciting a mocking screech as it swept around for another pass.
Powerless the man gulped and fled.

But the dark work was done: Numerous forest denizens emerged corrupted by evil roots. The Phoenix, Solaris, as she came to be known, saved many more and ended the Dark Winter, with her fiery will alone. Solaris also made a vow to purify the corrupted and restore balance to the land, regardless of cost.

Most Hated Hero:
Pontifex – Pontifex has uses a dark magic to create a warped version of her power, and Solaris believes he has ties to those that corrupted the forest.

Element: Fire: +30% bonus against NATURE enemies, -25% vs WATER enemies.

    The Solaris bundle to buy 100 tokens is not showing up for me on Nox or on my iphone. I have updated to the newest client on both. Going to try reinstalling the apps.

    EDIT: reinstalling worked. maybe just a timing issue too.

    She sounds like an amazing legendary to tie the beast team around, can't wait to unlock her!

    Though I'm finding it really ironic on how between water, nature, and fire, the one least associated with giving life has more heroes with "healer" than the other two combined.

  • What is Solaris' Snow Day ability (assuming that, as a Beast, she has one)?

    She does - it makes her aoe dmg attack also purge buffs.


  • Interesting hero, counters hopper pretty well
    Mock exams finished...Im back!
  • any way to make it so that when Solaris does his third ability and sacrifices himself it doesn't turn off auto-run?
  • I just tested it in pvp and i have to say its very powerful. I dont even have right heroes or proper runes for pvp but he creates miracles :) Here is one replay i had few hours ago.
  • Just noticed one ai bug in pvp defence. While 2 of his allies are dead ai choosing to attack instead of resurrecting allies. As his title says its a healer and ai should be more focused on healing instead of damaging in my opinion.

    I like her, but it would be cool for a change to have a Fire hero who's first ability wasn't "AoE Fire attack with chance to Burn".
    Level: 70
    Favorite hero: Bovus
    Favorite element: Nature
    Currently: Trying to max out Epics

    It used to be there were no Fire healers at all.

    Similar request -- in a PVE dungeon, she will execute her first two abilities and ignore dead heroes on the ground until the first two skills are spent.

    From a programming perspective, what if her "Fires & Flames" was moved up to the first slot? Would the AI choose that first if available? @Joel @Eej


  • It's not crystal clear to me what Pheonix Feathers do. After reading the description a few times I think Pheonix Feathers are what prevents corpses from being removed. Is this correct?

    Yes, Phoenix Feathers prevent corpses from being removed from the battle.

    So @DB_Dillon we went through this same thing when Ekko's epic came out. Immune to an element meant immune to the debuffs of that element as well. And you agreed which is why "Immune to light and spirit" on ekko literally means just that:
    cgpysne9sa3e.png
    9htddgik3z9o.png

    But now I look at solaris and I see we have changed the meaning of immunity yet again. This time it means immune to spirit and fire damage and heavy resistance to the debuffs (but still a chance of running away in fear instead of resurrecting):
    00vy7a67rq2q.png
    gd3g9d1q8egu.png

    Can we get some consistency with immunity here and get Solaris's resistances updated like we did with ekko's? Or can you explain the reasoning for making immunity mean heavy resistance to the debuffs this time?

  • I'm confused with all the ways Solaris ressurects.

    I know that when her "fury" builds up, you can choose her last ability to target your allies and will resurrect all dead allies and she dies. She then will revive in 2/3 turns? (does it vary?)

    But also, sometimes I'll notice that if she dies, after a couple turns, she will resurrect herself and any other allies as well. What ability/trait is that?
  • I like her, but it would be cool for a change to have a Fire hero who's first ability wasn't "AoE Fire attack with chance to Burn".

    You're in luck then. B/c her first ability is an AoE fire attack with chance to burn AND heals your part (2x healing if she kills someone)

    But is Ember not a fire healer?
  • @Deathwing999 We're talking before Ember. She was the first fire healer.
  • Cobressa is a healer but not effective

  • I'm autorunning Solaris and he only does his first ability. I think people were complaining previously that the 3rd ability was being used, sacrificing Solaris and interrupting autoruns. Was something changed where he won't do his 2nd and 3rd ability at all in autoruns?

    Thanks
  • Why is solaris looking backwards in my character screen by default? Is she shy?
  • would've loved to have this happen in front of me :D

    This will be fixed soon. :)
  • Yay, now my Solaris will never, ever be fully dead because of not getting feared.

  • Please fix ai for pvp defence. It plays like total idiot. skill 1 and then 2 and then 3. Lets say you lost 2 or 3 ally at first turn, she still keep casting fire bird to damage enemy instead of resurrecting allies and title says "healer"!
  • No plz dont make MK smarter on defence
