    Getting to grips…

    What is a MOBA?

    MOBA stands for ‘Multiplayer Online Battle Arena’ and it’s pretty much what it sounds like: join one of two teams of five in a multiplayer match as they face-off against each other for control of a specially-designed arena.

    Reach the opposing team’s base and destroy their core to claim victory. Work with your own support units to drive back their players and demolish their defences, before coordinating with the rest of your team for the final assault.



    Plan for victory…

    Your hero decks

    On top of regular levelling throughout the game, you’ll also earn cards. Assign these to your character to gain both active and passive abilities to use in the match.

    Granting everything from healing and attack or defence buffs to special in-game add-ons, your collection will build with successive matches as new cards are awarded for completing rounds. Build these into your own, customizable decks that can be carried with you into the next battle. 

     
     

    Better together...

    Working with your team, drive back the opposition and destroy their defences to clinch success. Besting opponents in combat, clobbering minions and demolishing defence towers will build your character’s level, unlocking the skills and moves you’ll need to finish the match.

     
     
     
     

    Paragon features a diverse and continually growing selection of Heroes, each with unique abilities designed to complement your allies and dominate your opponents.

     

    Fighter

    Grux

    A great entry-level character, Grux is all about getting up close and personal. With physical attack being his primary scaling and a reasonable basic attack power, he's all about the brawling. While Mobility isn't necessarily his strong suit, he can use his Smash & Grab and Stampede abilities to bring to fight to him. 

    • Chop - Grux swings his hammer blades in a chopping melee attack.
    • Double Pain - Grux performs a high damage, double bladed attack that applies Bleed to enemies hit.
    • Smash & Grab - Grux smashes the ground with both hammer blades and drags enemies to himself.
    • Stampede - Grux charges forward, damaging any enemies he runs through.

    • Warlord’s Challenge - Grux clangs his hammers together with such force that it briefly stuns all nearby enemies. While the hammers are ringing he gains additional movement speed and his Basic Attacks have increased damage and apply Bleed.

    Caster

    Dekker

    OVERVIEW:

    Lacking direct attack power or the toughness to tank heavy fire, Dekker's main strength lies in ranged support. Not a heavy hitter by herself, she's more than capable of tying the opposition in knots and leaving the damage dealers to do the rest.

    ABILITIES:

    • Energy Orb - Dekker fires a medium damage energy blast from her staff. 
    • Rocket Boots - Dekker ignites her rocket boots launching her into the air and giving nearby allies a quick movement speed boost.
    • Stasis Bomb - Dekker throws out a projectile that bounces along the ground, damaging any minions it passes through. The bomb will explode upon reaching max range or directly colliding with an object, terrain or enemy hero. If the projectile hits an enemy Hero, they are stunned based on how far the projectile traveled before hitting.
    • Slow Bubble - Dekker creates a bubble at a target location. Enemies within the bubble are slowed. After a time the bubble will pop, dealing more damage the longer it is active. The bubble can be detonated early by re-activating the ability.

    ULTIMATE:

    • Containment Fence - 

       

      Dekker erects a Containment Fence at a target location, trapping both allies and enemies inside. Allies can shoot through the fence but enemies cannot. Allies within the fence are granted a shield.

       

    Tank

    Steel

    OVERVIEW:

    With increible durability, melee attack and a range of defensive abilities, Steel is perfect for getting between his allies and the opposition. Tank damage, throw up shield walls and charge through enemy ranks to keep the heat off the rest of your team. 

    ABILITIES:

    • Punch - Steel attacks with a medium damage melee punch.
    • Shield Block - Steel pulls out his shield in front of him, blocking a percentage of incoming damage.
    • Charge - Steel charges forward, damaging all enemies he hits. Enemy heroes hit will also be knocked back, while enemy minions hit will be knocked up.
    • Force Shield - Steel creates an energy wall at a target location. Steel and allies are shielded and enemies are slowed as they pass through. Enemy projectiles are blocked by the wall.

    ULTIMATE:

    • Shield Slam - Steel launches into the air, slamming down on a targeted area with his shield, knocking up and stunning enemies.

    Caster

    Gadget

    OVERVIEW:

    Built neither to take damage nor deal it, Gadget is at her best when mounting an intimidating defense. Keep clear of the brawling and defend key positions with smart ballistics that target the opposition and bigger attacks that blanket the ground in damage.

    ABILITIES: 

    • Plasma Blast - Gadget fires a medium damage plasma blast from her gauntlet. 
    • Seek & Destroy - Gadget fires a bot that moves slowly in a straight line, granting vision within a radius. Reactivating the ability halts the bot and begins damaging and slowing enemies beneath. If the bot collides with an enemy Hero, it will auto trigger. 
    • Sticky Mine - Gadget fires a Sticky Mine to a target location. After a short time, the mine will activate, sticking to anyone within the radius. A few seconds after activating, the mine explodes.
    • Speed Gate - Gadget fires out a Speed Gate. Upon deploying, allies that pass through the gate will gain a large burst of movement speed. Enemies that pass through it will take damage.

    ULTIMATE:

    • Tesla Dome - Gadget places her Tesla Dome over a target location. After a short delay the Dome activates, dealing damage over the course of a few seconds. 

    Assassin

    Kallari

    Kallari is no beginner's hero. With incredible ability attack power and mobility, she's as swift and deadly as a silver bullet. Her physical weakness, however, makes her easy prey in the hands of an amateur. Stay hidden and swoop unexpectedly across the lanes to decimate your enemies.

    • Slash - Kallari slashes with her daggers in a quick melee attack.
    • Backflip - Kallari flips once in the air. The ability can be reactivated before landing to do an additional flip.
    • Shadow Walk - Kallari enters the Shadow Plane becoming invisible with increased movement speed. Nearby enemies will hear a whisper when a stealthed Kallari is nearby. Getting a kill resets the cooldown on this ability by a flat amount of seconds.
    • Blood Dagger - Kallari throws a dagger at her target dealing damage and applying a bleed that does damage over time.

    • Death Sentence - Kallari dashes forward and deals massive damage to any enemies she passes through.

    Caster

    Gideon

    OVERVIEW:

    Not a brawler by any means, Gideon still has a strong offensive push, able to deal huge damage with his abilities and move quickly to stay out of harm's way. More than capable of advancig the field, Gideon is a powerful character in the right hands, but can easily be taken down by overly agressive play.

    ABILITIES:

    • Portal Blast - Gideon throws a medium damage blast of dark energy. 
    • Dark Tether - Gideon fires a projectile that tethers him to an enemy Hero. While tethered, the enemy is slowed and takes damage over time. The tether breaks early if enemy gets out of range or breaks line of sight.
    • Cosmic Rift - Gideon opens a Cosmic Rift over the battlefield, dropping meteors at the target location.
    • Torn Space - Gideon opens a portal at a targeted area, allowing him to quickly teleport. Friendly heroes can follow him through the portal by jumping into it.

    ULTIMATE:

    • Black Hole - Gideon starts channeling and summoning a black hole from his rift device which creates a swirling vortex in a radius around him. Enemies within the radius are dragged inward and take damage over time. Gideon receives a shield and is immune to crowd control after casting.

    Ranger

    Twin Blast

    OVERVIEW:

    The perfect character for Paragon and MOBA newcomers who are looking to get to grips with the basics, Twin Blast can rely comfortably on his basics to get the job done. With a high basic attack power and penty of range, his playstyle will feel familiar to players joining the action from other more familiar genres.

    ABILITIES:

    • Doubleshot - Twinblast fires shots from his blasters, alternating hands with each shot when the button is held.
    • Rocket Dash - Twinblast dives in his direction of motion.
    • Nitro - Passive: Twinblast has increased attack speed. Active: Activating Nitro increases Twinblast's attack speed bonus -  for a short period of time.  
    • Grenade! - Twinblast fires a grenade to a target location. After a short delay the grenade explodes dealing damage and slowing enemies.

    ULTIMATE:

    • Barrage - Twinblast's guns transform into cannons, which auto fire rocket salvos for a short time causing bonus damage and piercing through enemy minions.

    Caster

    Muriel

    OVERVIEW:

    With limited offensive capabilities and low durability, Muriel has little strength to drive back the opposition by herself. However, with the power to shield, restore and grant speed boosts to her allies, her presence on the field is not to be ignored. 

    ABILITIES:

    • Orb - Muriel fires a medium damage energy orb from her hand.
    • Alacrity - Muriel shoots a large orb onto the battlefield. If Muriel or any ally touches the orb, they are granted a shield and a burst of movespeed.
    • Serenity - Muriel fires a ball of energy that damages any minions it passes through, and slows and damages the first enemy hero it hits.
    • Consecrated Ground - Muriel summons a large energy bubble that applies a shield to friendly heroes within. At the end of the ability, the bubble collapses, damaging enemy heroes in it.

    ULTIMATE:

    • Reversal of Fortune - Muriel targets an ally anywhere on the map. After a short delay, she grants the ally a shield and flies across the map to their location. Once Muriel arrives, nearby ally heroes gain a shield and enemy heroes get knocked up into the air.

    Tank

    Sevarog

    OVERVIEW:

    With incredibly high durability, but relatively low offensive capabilties, Sevarog takes skill to make the most of. Use the jungles to  stay out of sight and gain a level advantage early in the match - as the game progresses the buff will come in handy for upsetting balance on the lanes and make gang kills a cinch.

    ABILITIES:

    • Hammer - Sevarog swings his hammer in a medium damage, melee attack.
    • Phantom Rush - Sevarog rushes forward with a short-distance dash, gliding through any enemies in his path.
    • Siphon - Passive: When Sevarog kills an enemy with this ability, he gains soul stacks. Siphon gains bonus damage for each soul Stack plateau he reaches. Active: Sevarog slams his hammer on the ground, dealing damage in front of him. Killing an enemy with this attack will grant a number of soul stacks.
    • Subjugate - Sevarog targets an area on the ground that roots and damages opponents. After the root ends, enemies will be slowed for a short period.

    ULTIMATE:

    • Colossal Blow - Sevarog makes one mighty sweep with his hammer. Enemy heroes are damaged and knocked back a great distance. Enemy minions are obliterated. Colossal Blow gains bonus damage for each Soul Tap plateau he reaches.

    Fighter

    Fang Mao

    OVERVIEW:
     
    A capable brawler, Feng Mao benefits from skilled, strategic play as much as his high basic attack power. Use the jungles to build an early level lead and keep and eye on your offensive and defensive stacks as many of your abilities rely on them. With proper planning though, lane interference and brutal ganks should come naturally.
     
    ABILITIES:
     
    • Sweep - Feng Mao makes a wide melee sweep with his blade. Damage increases based on the number of offensive stacks Feng Mao has. Feng Mao generates a defensive stack for each hit he lands with Sweep. 
    • Conversion Shield - Feng Mao generates a shield that blocks a portion incoming damage. This shield strength is increased based on the number of defensive stacks Feng Mao has. Feng Mao generates an offensive stack for each hit he takes while Conversion Shield is active.
    • Reaping Dash - Feng Mao throws out an image of himself, and upon colliding with an enemy hero or reaching max distance he will teleport to the image. The image will deal damage to all minions it passes through and any heroes it collides with. Feng Mao will also be granted an offensive stack upon use. 
    • Hamstring - Feng Mao whirls his blade in a circle around him, slowing and dealing damage to enemies within range. Feng Mao generates a defensive stack upon use.
     
    ULTIMATE:
     
    • Earth Shatter - Feng Mao leaps into the air and slams his blade on the ground dealing damage in a line in front of him. Feng Mao generates a protective shield when using the ability.

    Caster

    Howitzer

    OVERVIEW:

    With a powerful suite of ranged attack abilities, Howitzer is perfect for decimating enemy minions and driving a solid offensive towards the enemy core. Target minions rather than opposition heroes to make way for the brawlers on your team. Beware: being too agressive can leave you vulnerable to gang kills.

    ABILITIES:

    • Cannon - Howitzer fires a medium damage explosive projectile.
    • Slow Grenades - Howitzer fires 3 grenades in a line that explode after a short time or if any enemies enter their proximity. Any enemies hit are slowed. 
    • R2000 Missile - Howitzer fires a long range Rocket at a target location. On impact, the rocket explodes and deals damage in a small radius.
    • Land Mine - Howitzer throws a Land Mine to a target location. After a short delay or after re-triggering, the mine explodes dealing damage and knocking nearby enemies away. Howitzer will also be affected by the knockback if he is nearby.

    ULTIMATE:

    • Make It Rain - Howitzer launches into the air and Makes it Rain missiles in a target area. The missiles hit repeatedly over a short duration with the last missile dealing extra damage.

    Caster

    Iggy & Scorch

    OVERVIEW:

    Low on durability and basic attack power but fearsome with their abilities, Iggy & Scorch are built to hold ground rather than advance it. Laying down oil and fire with reckless abandon, the pair can easily turn any position into an impassable inferno.

    ABILITIES:

    • Molotov - Iggy lobs a ranged flaming molotov bottle that explodes on impact and leaves a tiny pool of fire on the ground for a short time.
    • Oil Slick - Scorch gains a brief speed boost and leaves a trail of flammable oil on the ground behind him that can be ignited by fire. The trail applies Oil to enemies who walk on it.
    • Flame Turret - Iggy throws out a Flame Turret that sprays fire. Turrets have limited fuel and health. They will auto-attack any enemy in range (prioritizing enemy Heroes) and will self destruct when out of fuel. Leveling the ability allows Iggy to place more turrets simultaneously.
    • Oil Spill - Scorch hacks up an oil blob and spits it at a ground-targeted location. When the Oil Spill lands it creates an area that applies Oil to enemies. The Oil can be ignited by fire to deal damage in a single burst.

    ULTIMATE:

    • Flame Belch - Iggy feeds Scorch one of his Molotovs and Scorch begins to spew flames from his mouth dealing fire damage to enemies in front of him. At the end of the duration Scorch belches, creating a giant explosion that does large damage and knocks enemies back. The ability can be re-triggered to end early and activate the belch.

    Ranger

    Murcdock

    OVERVIEW:

    A classic 'carry' player, Murdock may need to rely on the rest of his team in the earlier part of the game, but once levelled up his offensive abilities will be indispensible. Hold back and stay close to team mates in the earlier part of the game and focus on gaining levels and upgrading abilities and by the end-game you'll be melting oppostion heroes with your attacks.

    ABILITIES:

    • Plasma Bolt - Murdock fires a high damage attack from his blaster.
    • Shielding Shot - Murdock projects an energy shield from his arm, mitigating damage in front of him. While the shield is out, basic attack will fire the shield forward and knock back the first enemy. 
    • Buckshot - Murdock fires a shotgun shell from the pistol on his back, dealing damage in a cone. Enemies hit have their energy resistance reduced for a short time.
    • Static Lock - Murdock throws out a trap to a target location. If an enemy steps on the trap, they take damage and are slowed for a short duration. 

    ULTIMATE:

    • Devastating BlastMurdock takes a knee and zooms in on a distant target. Upon confirming, Murdock fires a long range laser from his gun that passes through any enemy, object or terrain.

    Tank

    Ramage

    OVERVIEW:

    Think of Rampage as the 'King of the Jungle'. Light on his feet and highly durable, Rampage is built for surprise attacks. Use the 'Boulder' ability to stun enemies and set up perfect gang kills before retreating to the jungle, where your passive ability will grant healing buffs. 

    ABILITIES:

    • Swipe - Rampage swipes his claws in a strong melee attack.
    • Pounce - Rampage leaps forward in an arc and deals damage when he lands. Critically wounded targets are dealt bonus damage. Pounce range increases when Roar or Enraged are active. Rampage will slam to the ground if he Swipes while in mid-air.
    • Boulder Throw - Rampage tears a boulder out of the ground and heaves it at enemies, stunning enemy Heroes and dealing damage.
    • Feral Roar - Rampage lets out a beastial howl that increases his movement speed, and grants a movement speed boost to nearby allies. While active, Rampage can Pounce farther.

    ULTIMATES:

    • Enraged - Rampage gets Enraged, grows in size, gains health, and gains additional damage based on missing health. While Enraged, Rampage can only use Swipe and Pounce, which are reset when this ability is activated.

    Ranger

    Sparrow

    OVERVIEW:

    As delicate as her name suggests, what Sparrow lacks in constitution she more than accounts for with basic attack power. Play it safe in the early game and gain levels at a distance. As your power increases you'll become near unmatched for raw offensive ability, shredding enemy heroes with little difficulty - particularly when your passive ability is active.

    ABILITIES:

    • Bow Shot - Sparrow fires a high damage arrow.
    • Piercing Shot - While holding the ability, Sparrow slows her movement and charges a powerful arrow. When the ability is released, Sparrow looses an arrow that pierces all enemies. The damage is increased the longer the ability is held. 
    • Hall of Arrows - Sparrow rains arrows down at the target location for several seconds, dealing damage to enemies and applying her Relentless stacks.
    • Invigorate - Sparrow focuses, allowing her to fire arrows very quickly for the next 3 shots. 

    ULTIMATE:

    • Inner Fire - Sparrow glows with a magical light, splitting her Bow Shot into a cone of 3 arrows. These arrows pierce through units and apply basic attack card effects.
