Free Hero Rotation (July 3): Try Kensei the Master Swordsman

Each week six heroes are temporarily unlocked for play in Casual and Private games. Try this set of heroes today!


KENSEI (ASSASSIN)

Kensei is an agile swordmaster who excels at fighting durable heroes. Generate stacks with his Perk, Immovable Mind, to deal bonus damage and gain a burst of barrier; make sure you’re constantly attacking opponents with large health pools to deal massive damage and to gain larger barriers.

Purchase cooldown reduction items to frequently use Lotus Strike and Kensho, for increased mobility and ability empowerment. When the time is right, deliver a fierce killing blow to anyone in Kensei’s path with his Ultimate ability, Path of the Ronin.


LANCE (CAPTAIN)

Lance depends on both his courage and his wits to protect his allies. With his unique polearm-and-shield combat style, he breaks enemy lines and creates opportunities for his friends. Lance can build crystal or utility items to excel in his role as a protector, or he can build weapon items to deal more damage during battle.


BLACKFEATHER (CARRY)

Blackfeather is a striking duelist who pierces the hearts of his opponents. When building weapon items, he becomes a powerful assassin. Building crystal and utility items instead unlocks powerful effects for himself and his team. He performs well in the lane where he can focus on accumulating gold early in the match.


GLAIVE (JUNGLER)

Glaive has one of the most feared abilities in the game: a jet-powered Afterburn strike that will slice through you and blast you back into a tactically fatal position. In teamfights, Glaive’s area-of-effect cleave and Bloodsong lifesteal makes him incredibly hard to bring down. Try Glaive first as a jungler, but roam into the lane to rocket enemies toward your allies and turrets.


LYRA (CAPTAIN)

Drawing upon her training as a Gythian battlemage, Lyra uses healing and protective magic to turn enemy positions into powerful zones for her allies. Her portals also allow her team to bypass these positions entirely, avoiding defenses and terrain. Utility and defense items improve her role as a healer, while crystal items provide a devastating but fragile mage path.


SAW (CARRY)

SAW has arguably the highest damage potential in the game … but at the huge expense of mobility. Excellent at sieging important locations, SAW zones out entire regions from the enemy team with Suppressing Fire. Try starting him in lane, earn as much gold as possible, then make your presence felt wherever needed.
