  • Wow i have got to get me one of these :)
  • It will be a pretty interesting hero, you either kill it first or kill it last :|
    Also what does the Flying in the Face trait description mean?

  • So does Secret to Eternal Life apply to himself as well if he's the 1st to die? Would make sense with the skill name... but just checking.

    Based on verbage, I would assume it cannot be used on himself.
    • Secret to Eternal Life: If not the last alive hero, upon death he will bring a dead ally back to life.

  • Not bad at all. Confused on why Leonidus is a beast hero, aside from physicality. Way more useful on a light team than a beast team. Interesting new traits, can't wait to try them out!

    Flying in the Face: Can't be retaliated against

    Does anyone know what this means? Immune to crit?

  • Flying in the face: can't be retaliated against.
    My take is that whoever he attacks cannot target him on their next attack.
    Meaning that if he attacks Willow, on her next attack, she cannot attack Leonidus.

    would eventually make sense, but
    "Sun Worship: Ranged Spirit attack on all enemies for 115 (scales) base damage and a chance for Magnified Light debuffs. (Magnified Light is 2x damage from Light Heroes.)"

    what if he´s the last hero and uses sun worship - game freezes? :open_mouth:

    All AOE attacks still force you to pick a single target, so maybe it applies only to the single target.

    But it doesn't even need to be that complicated. What if it's only Leonidus vs one other enemy left? Leonidus attacks them and then what? Game freezes? They lose their turn recursively until Leonidus kills them?

  • I agree with @Starwind227 that the most likely case for Flying in the Face is that whomever he attacks cannot target him on their next turn.

    @flurgx3000 I think that in your scenario this trait would not be applicable in order to prevent a game freeze.

  • Oh man, "The Guardian" ability looks epic for a normal speed hero depending on scaling..

    Actually you don't need to get that complicated, he has a taunt ability - The guardian. Use the guardian first turn, attack a hero second turn, never get to third turn?

    @Maestro5563 pointed out that the vines from Root of All Evil have the "Retaliate IV" trait, which gives them a high chance to attack a hero after being melee attacked. That suggests that trait may be showing up some more in the Challenge Mode.

  • Maybe he just doesnt take damage next round from whomever he attacked this round. There's no need to target.

    If this was the case we would see quite a few stalemates of last standing Leonidus's attacking last standing Leonidus's.

    He is already my favorite hero now!

    That anti-retaliation trait is kind of a waste. Way too specific. What enemies can even retaliate in this game? Does it count reflecting damage??

    Not so sure. If that were the case all heroes, like Yoko, that say they increase ALLIES hp/att/whatever wouldn't apply to themselves, but yet they do. So based on verbiage and current mechanics, this might not be true. It's also called Eternal Life, so maybe if he's the first to die the intent was that he can bring himself back infinitely?

    Hey all, sorry for the confusion. Retaliation is a new mechanic that was added in the update and is detailed in the patch notes.

    "New Revenge passive - Slow heroes have a 25% chance to retaliate to any physical attack with a basic attack."

    When Leonidus attacks a slow hero, there is a 0% chance of retaliation. :)

  • I must say that "flying in the face" is now my new favorite trait name. Great wordsmithing :smiley:
  • Also a huge thank you for continuing to make the game better. Nice work!
  • A light beast! Cool! We need more beasts that aren't fire or nature. Can't wait for the new update. In fact, the past few updates have been really awesome!

    A light type Egyptian themed beast hero... Hmmm... I made something like that recently. Could be a coincidence but quite a few times I've made a hero idea and have seen a similar hero come out soon after (Made a fire tank soon before Pignius was released)
