Description[edit source]

Bionka is a tough melee hero that deals heavy damage with her flail. She may be slow, but she dominates her foes.

Character Bio[edit source]

Managing mana is key when playing Cygnus. A full mana pool helps Cygnus survive an enemy assault while Chain Lightning and Voltaic Charge deal copious amounts of lightning damage.

When Cygnus is close to his rift, he regenerates health and mana at an extraordinary rate.
