Kaneq – Arctic Explorer
Kaneq is a Middle Line DPS Hero with support hero characteristics. His abilities can interfere with enemy abilities as well as dealing significant amounts of damage. Kaneq will be available as a Purchase Bonus starting 3/24.
Kaneq’s Ultimate, Double Strike, does both single-target and AOE physical damage. He first forms a giant snowball and rolls through the enemy party stunning and dealing damage to enemies in his path. Then he targets the enemy with the highest physical attack and slaps them with a giant fish (yes, you read that right), dealing a large amount of physical damage and Lifting them. If his target is killed before he gets there, he is able to switch targets on the fly. Finally, he returns to his original position. While he is executing his attack, Kaneq is immune to all control abilities.
In Snowball Volley, Kaneq and his penguin minions throw a volley of snowballs at a single target, dealing physical damage and slowing the enemy. The larger snowball that Kaneq throws also has a lifting effect. Upgrade this ability to deal more damage and slow the enemy down more.
Kaneq’s third ability, Penguin Assassin, involves one of Kaneq’s penguin minions placing an ice bomb behind enemy lines. The target is the enemy with the highest physical attack. When the bomb explodes, it deals physical damage, slows, and knocks-back the target, as well as other enemies in the area.
When Kaneq’s 4th ability Frostbite is unlocked, every time a fixed period of time passes, the next of Kaneq’s attacks will crit. The amount of time between crits is determined by ability level; the more you level up this ability, the more frequently Kaneq’s attacks will crit.
Initial Ability Sequence:
Basic Attack, Snowball Volley, Penguin Assassin
Kaneq is a hero with a balance of DPS and Control characteristics. While dealing significant amounts of damage, his abilities typically also stun, slow, or knock-back the enemy. When fully leveled up, Snowball Volley and Penguin Assassin can both reduce enemy attack speed by nearly 20%. As a versatile hero with an excellent Physical Attack rating, Kaneq would be an excellent addition to nearly any party.
