Bruiser Heroes are tough fighters that can also dish out moderate amounts of damage.

Support

Support Heroes primarily provide boosts, buffs, or other benefits to their allies.

Healer

Healer Heroes primarily focus on healing their allies and mitigating damage.

Melee Assassin

Melee Assassin Heroes are high-octane, in-your-face damage dealers that get up close and personal with their targets.

Ranged Assassin

Ranged Assassin Heroes are fragile characters with high damage capabilities that attack from a distance.

Battlegrounds
