Full Match - Phoenix Gameplay

Phoenix Gameplay

Phoenix Abilities

  • Hot Hands: Throw a fireball that explodes after a delay or upon impact with the ground. The fire zone damages enemies, and heals you.
  • Blaze: - Cast out a flame wall that blocks vision and damages anyone passing through it. You can bend the wall when casting by turning while holding left-click.
  • Signature Ability ⁠— Curveball: Cast a curving flare that bursts into brilliant light after a brief delay, temporarily blinding all looking at it. Left-click curves it left, right-click curves it right.
  • Ultimate Ability ⁠— Run it Back: Mark your current location. If you die during this ability’s duration, or when this ability’s duration expires, you’ll be reborn at the marked location with full health.

Gameplay

A damage-dealer with plenty of utility, Phoenix looks like an ideal all-rounder.

A well-aimed Curveball can give teams a huge advantage when attacking, while Blaze can be ideal for zone defence.
