Heroes of the Storm Cassia

Ever wanted to play an Amazon in Blizzard’s free-to-play MOBA, Heroes of the Storm? Well, now you can! Cassia, Amazon Warmatron has a deep backstory within the Diablo lore. After she shattered the Worldstone, the young Amazon had changed. She had seen hatred, terror, and destruction firsthand. If the Askari were to survive the coming darkness, they needed an army. She began their training immediately.

Cassia plays the ranged assassin role and her kit is centered around the passive trait Avoidance. When moving unmounted, Avoidance allows Cassia to gain 65 Physical Armor against Heroic Basic Attacks, reducing the damage taken by 65%. This ensures that you’ll be doing a lot of stutter-stepping with Cassia because Avoidance benefits players that are on the move constantly. The rest of her kit is as follows:

Basic Abilities

  • Lightning Fury (Q) - Hurl a javelin that damages the first enemy hit, and splits into two lightning bolts that deal damage to enemies in their paths.
  • Blinding Light (W) - After 0.5 seconds, Blind enemies in the target area for 2 seconds. Passive: Cassia deals 15% increased damage to Blinded targets.
  • Fend (E) - Charge at an enemy, and upon arriving channel for 1.5 seconds, damaging enemies in front of cassia every 0.25 seconds. Deals 50% reduced damage to non-Heroes.
  • Heroic Abilities

  • Ball Lightning (R) - Throw a ball of lightning at an enemy Hero that bounces up to 6 times between nearby enemy Heroes and Cassia, damaging enemies hit.
  • Valkyrie (R) - Summon a Valkyrie that rushes to Cassia after 0.75 seconds, pulling and damaging the first enemy Hero hit, and stunning them for 0.5 seconds at the end of her path. The Valkyrie knocks back all other enemy Heroes in her way.
  • Having played Cassia at this year’s Heroes of the Storm Media Summit, I found her to be very impactful. Each of her talents give her a diverse number of options when faced with different situations.

    One of the most satisfying things in her kit is the Ball Lightning Heroic ability. This ability on its own is great and all, but what if it was endless? With her tier 7 talent Infinite Lightning, that Heroic ability becomes well … infinite. Meaning, people will have your balls in their face until Cassia is taken out of the equation. How could you not like that?

    If Cassia sounds awesome to you, she’s in the game right now, so go check her out! And make sure to check out our long exposé on everything related to Heroes of the Storm's 2.0 relaunch!
