    Thanks for the good feedback

    Ah, I won't be able to give my thoughts on the hero 'silencer' as I myself don't have that hero. Would not be able to analyze and give a good rating if I didn't have the hero

    I have some heroes not listed that i am happy to give my own opinion on

    Wind Master Aka Sarra
    Good : Great Back liner that deals both physical and magic damage. Good amounts of DPS and her ulti is great for knocking back every enemy hero for an interrupt.
    Bad : Is rather weak to magic dmg and low hp regen. No other downsides that I've noticed so far.
    Overall Rating : Campaigns (9.5/10), Arena (8.5/10), Crusade (8/10)

    Vengeance Spirit Aka Nasira
    Good : Good Middle lane dmg dealer with good AOE crowd control Ulti. Her GS is quite good with Aoe dmg to all Front and middle lines when levelled up.
    Bad : Low HP pool, Low magic resist, Ulti isn't always a guarantee which can be dangerous when its needed.
    Overall Rating : Campaigns (9/10), Arena (7.5/10), Crusade (7.5/10)

    Master Mage Aka Fiera
    Good : Good Middle lane mage that is extremely strong against Non-magic types. Has a good HP pool for mage class and has very high magic dmg.
    Bad : Energy regen is bad, fairly low magic resist, and low armor. Her BS also exiles enemies for around 6 seconds, which can be rather annoying if she exiles a target you don't want her to. E.g a tank class.
    Overall Rating : Campaigns (9.5/10), Arena (8.5/10), Crusade (8.5/10)

    Brute Aka Urtock the Accursed
    Good : Front line Tank that launches strong counter attacks at enemies. Has a great ulti that will insta kill any low hp enemies guaranteed. Good AoE cleave dmg at BS level.

    Lunar Guardian Aka Loreth
    Good : Middle lane physical range class. Great AoE dmg with her Ulti and BS. She has a fairly high physical crit.

    Overall Rating : Campaigns (9.5/10), Arena (8.5/10), Crusade (8.5/10)

    I also have Ice Mage, Emberstar, Lightning Master, Soulhunter, Leaves Shadow, Chaplain, Admiral, Necromancer, Mystic, Shadow Shaman, Silencer, Pilot, Cleric, Psychopath, Machinist, Sniper and Shallows Keeper but I don't use them overly much to know if they are any good at this time. If anyone has used these heroes, please let me know if any are worth putting some time into, and what their stats are like above Blue+1.

    Thanks guys!

    Well this is my feedback on this hero which I don't really see that ofthen
    Poisoned One
    Good: Extremely tanky in comparison to other back line heroes. Probably a tanklike backline hero. It has very high continuos damage on 2 spells (ultimate+1st passive). Fairly good mana regen.
    Bad: Not enough burst damage in comparison to other backline heroes.
    Arena: 7.5/10, Campaigns: 8/10, Crusade 8/10

    Recommended usage: Somehow in front of other backliners to protect them against some damage. Very good against high HP bosses due to the big continuos damage. Very good 1 vs 1. Good against big AOE nukers since he has very high magic resistence.

    P.S We should rank the heroes a bit more drastic in order to make room for differences between them.

    You should type what level character you rate. For example - Emberstar low magic crit is just not true. I have equity geared 38 lvl zeus and lina, and she have 4x more magic crit than him.

    Necromancer's disable skill Exile annoyingly gives the enemy Physical Immunity. If your timing is unlucky it can make them a damage sponge instead by eating up all Physical damage. I don't like Necromancer much because of this.

    One little addition, knockback is 100% effective unlike Stun and Silence which is based on skill level. You still want to level it first cos the damage increase is obscene though.

    Thanks for this Joseph.

    So I should use emberstar as opposed to ice mage?
    They're used in different setup.

    Emberstar is capable of nuking one enemy, even one hit killing when you crit. Her stun is AOE although the duration is shorter than single target stun.

    Ice Mage is all about AOE, dealing comparable damage but across all enemies. Her stun is single target, and she has an AOE slow. In this game, slow is useful.

    I use Emberstar when I need to dispatch the Front tanks quickly. Ice Mage I use when the enemies are relatively on the fragile side and I know the combined AOE damage from my team will kill them quickly or I need the additional CC.

    They're both good at what they do, but if you do decide to use Emberstar make sure you start collecting her Soul stones asap.

    its false. Lowlvl ult would fail to knockback.
