Before jumping in, there are only five days left until Hellenica is released! Hop on over to Steam and wishlist us if you haven't already.
Alright, so last time we introduced Scylax, one of Hellenica's magic users. (Check out Part 1!) Today I'll tease a couple of his other skills, starting with Fire Wave.
Fire Wave is great for close quarters, especially when you can group up some enemies using your other party members' pushes and tosses.
Once Scylax has powered up his Intensity, Fire Wave becomes even more powerful.
The empowered version of Fire Wave shoots out a line of flames in four directions, dealing a massive amount of damage if you're able to position Scylax just right.
The next skill, and some of our testers' personal favorites, is called Fire Blast.
Fire Blast combines Scylax's affinity for area damage with the joys of tossing characters. Also, he can use it on himself or party members for a classical take on the rocket jump:
When empowered, Fire Blast deals more damage and launches targets even farther, which can be very useful on boats and other tight levels with a lot of verticality.
Just be careful you don't knock your own party members off the edge!
Friday I'll be putting together a post on combat in Hellenica in general since our turn structure is somewhat unique. Check back then!
And let your friends know Hellenica is launching Monday!
