Hero Wars Polaris new video also blog. It’s been a while, but I’m back in action, ready to explore the exciting changes that have unfolded in the game during my absence. The graphical improvements are immediately noticeable, and the gameplay enhancements are truly captivating. Today, our focus is on the latest addition to the hero roster – Polaris. As a Control Mage, Polaris brings a unique dynamic to the battlefield, emphasizing support over primary damage dealing. Join me as we delve into Polaris’s skills, strategic roles, development strategies, and how she holds up against purported hard counters.

Hero Wars Polaris Skills

Let’s kick things off with Polaris’s primary skill, ‘Pulsing Comet.’ This ability deals damage to the entire enemy team, with a particular emphasis on front-line heroes. While she might not be the main damage dealer, this skill sets the stage for her control-oriented playstyle.

Polaris’s green skill, ‘Glacial Fortress,’ is where things get interesting. This skill creates an ice barrier that not only provides protection but also serves as an energy booster. When enemies strike the barrier, Polaris gains a 10% energy bonus per hit. With the barrier capable of withstanding three hits, Polaris can potentially gain a significant 30% energy, allowing her to access her powerful skills more frequently than other heroes. This skill alone distinguishes Polaris as a hero with accelerated energy generation.

Now, let’s shift our focus to the skills that truly define Polaris’s supportive role – the blue and violet skills. The third skill, ‘Northern Lights,’ is a game-changer. It empowers Polaris’s allies, allowing them to extend control effects by a whopping 60%. Visually, this skill manifests as a cloud of different colors during battle. For manual players, this cloud signals the opportune moment to activate control effects strategically. To illustrate the impact, we conducted a test using Arachne as an example. Arachne’s ‘Hyper Jump’ skill stuns enemies for 5 seconds, but with Mara’s pet patronage, this duration jumps to 15 seconds. Introducing Polaris into the mix with ‘Northern Lights’ extends Arachne’s stun by an additional 9 seconds, bringing the total to an impressive 24 seconds. This synergy showcases Polaris’s ability to enhance the control capabilities of other heroes, making her an ideal companion for various team compositions.

Polaris’s violet skill, ‘True Freeze,’ is another powerful asset. Activated when ‘Pulsing Comet’ or ‘Glacial Fortress’ explodes, it inflicts a ‘True Freeze’ status on affected enemies for 3 seconds. During this time, enemies are stunned and receive 140% more magic damage. In a practical demonstration with Orion, his damage output from a single rocket surged from 66k to an astounding 160k when supported by Polaris’s ‘True Freeze’ violet skill.

Polaris Development

When it comes to developing Polaris, prioritizing her blue and violet skills is crucial. The beauty of these skills lies in their independence from health or magic attack stats. This makes them relatively easier to level up, requiring only gold investments. After boosting her health and armor to enhance her survivability, the first artifact to focus on is magic penetration. Every time Polaris uses her ‘Pulsing Comet,’ the magic penetration effect is activated, benefiting not only her but also amplifying the damage output of other mages in the team.

Hw to use Hero Wars Polaris

Now, let’s explore the strategic ways to utilize Polaris on the battlefield. There are two primary approaches – control support and damage support. In a control support role, pair Polaris with another control hero, ensuring that Mara’s patronage is directed toward the chosen hero, not Polaris. This setup maximizes the control capabilities of the team. On the other hand, if you aim to boost overall team damage, use Mara’s pet to patronize Polaris. This extends the duration of ‘True Freeze’ to 9 seconds instead of the base 3 seconds, providing more time for the 140% magic damage increase to wreak havoc on enemies.

Hero Wars Polaris counter Sebastian and Isaac

Now, let’s address the intriguing aspect of Polaris’s resilience against purported hard counters. Typically, when facing mage and control heroes, one would instinctively think of Isaac and Sebastian as reliable hard counters. However, Polaris introduces a fascinating twist to this dynamic. Surprisingly, Polaris doesn’t significantly boost Isaac’s energy bar, and her first skill, ‘Pulsing Comet,’ inflicts higher magic damage, making her less susceptible to Isaac’s energy depletion effects. Moreover, her blue and violet skills operate passively, further mitigating the impact of debuffing strategies.

Sebastian’s shield debuff, a mechanism that traditionally dissipates before the 15th attack, encounters a fascinating hurdle when confronted by Polaris. Upon closer scrutiny, a peculiar phenomenon unfolds – Polaris appears to impede the momentum of the entire opposing team after approximately 7-8 attacks. Notably, both Polaris’s first and second skills, upon detonation, deal substantial damage, effectively hastening the drop of Sebastian’s protective shield. Additionally, the intricacies of Polaris’s blue skill, Northern Lights, further contribute to this disruption by reducing the likelihood of enemy skills activating by 10%. This nuanced interaction positions Polaris as an unexpected yet potent counter against both Isaac and Sebastian, adding a layer of strategic depth to her already versatile skill set.

While heroes like Corvus can inflict substantial damage on Polaris, she proves to be a resilient force on the battlefield, challenging the notion of a straightforward hard counter.

In conclusion, Polaris injects a refreshing strategic dynamic into the world of Dominion. Her versatility and support-oriented skill set make her a valuable addition to various team compositions.
