Arcturus is a back line support hero who specializes in slowing and freezing enemies. He also can inflict some damage and protect allies with an armor buff. Arcturus will be available for a limited time through a special Christmas purchase bonus.

Hero Stats:

Hero Abilities:

Arcturus’ Ultimate, Ice Jet, blasts a stream of ice at the entire enemy party, first slowing them and then potentially freezing them. The chance of successfully freezing them depends on the ability level.

His second ability, Glacial Blast, targets a single enemy with a super-cooled ice crystal. The crystal deals damage and slows the target, before breaking into multiple fragments. The fragments hit other enemies, each dealing more damage than the original crystal. The more fragments there are, the more damage each one deals.

His third ability, Crystal Shield, targets his weakest front-line ally and buffs their Physical Armor for an extended period. While protected by the Crystal Shield, enemies that strike the buffed ally will be slowed.

Frozen Flames, his 4th ability, also deals magic damage and has a slowing effect. Affected enemies also take damage over time.

Initial Ability Sequence:

Basic Attack, Glacial Blast, Crystal Shield, Frozen Flames

Summary:

Despite having an ultimate that is purely a control ability (deals no damage), Arcturus can be a surprisingly effective weapon in a support role. Every one of his abilities can freeze or slow enemies. This Hero also has the unique characteristic that any enemy struck twice consecutively by his slowing abilities is automatically frozen. Constantly interrupting enemy movement and attacks can set up Arcturus’ damage-dealing allies to be more effective. One of the most control-focused heroes in Soul Hunters thus far, he will definitely be a force to contend with.
