Features

  • No SC2 unit models are used; game is completely fantasy themed.
  • High replayability; each boss has a large set of abilities (including an ultimate) and does not act predictably.
  • Currently 7 bosses are playable. You can fight 5 of them on Easy. Each difficulty you move up will allow you to fight an additional boss.
  • 7 heros to choose from. Each hero brings unique utility. Some heros have the ability to Interupt powerful boss abilities or prevent them from being cast.
  • Hero Selection: http://i.imgur.com/Ffv1zlP.png
  • Purchase from a wide-range of items; Potions, Enchantments, Scrolls and Souls. Your options are many and resource is limited, so you'll have to make some hard decisions.
  • Shop Area: http://i.imgur.com/gGTFbJ6.jpg
  • Souls are permanent upgrades with unique effects that can be leveled. At the start you can choose from 3 Basic Souls, however bosses will drop several random unique Souls on defeat that you can save your Karma for.
  • 4 Difficulty settings. Easy and Normal are intended for public games and new players, while for Hard and Impossible you'll want experienced teams. You will have to start on Easy and unlock the other difficulties.
  • Custom music for every boss.


  • Bosses

  • Bosses have a wide selection of abilities, target heros intelligently, and some will gain either additional mechanics, phases, or abilities on higher difficulties.
  • The vast majority of boss attacks are avoidable.
  • Just barely avoided Vale's SURGE: http://i.imgur.com/7TDh8Wz.jpg
  • Bosses can be Interrupted by some classes, preventing or stopping their current cast. Some abilities will have devastating effects if not stopped!
  • ROOT is being cast by the boss: http://i.imgur.com/8sqffWY.jpg
    Interupted ROOT which would have immobilized the team: http://i.imgur.com/Gi8GiA7.jpg

  • Every boss has a powerful ultimate attack that is cast when they have full energy. Players can prevent or greatly delay an ultimate in most cases by managing the bosses energy. In each fight, this involves doing different things.
  • Rayel using her Ultimate: http://i.imgur.com/obdFx1i.jpg
    Vale's about to restore energy if the orbs just above him make contact: http://i.imgur.com/ZiwjaWe.jpg

  • Players get to decide as a team on what order to play the first 3 bosses.


  • Starting Out

  • All heros have “Mystic Guard”, a very important defensive ability; learn to time it well to avoid heavy damage.
  • On Easy difficulty, you can get away with basically any kind of team composition. Moving onto higher difficulties, you'll want to start to balance out the team so you have enough Interupt, AOE, damage, and utility.
  • If you are wondering what items to take, you can't go wrong with a few Health potions.


  • Look forward to more content coming soon!

    That Hard mode run last night was crazy with Kavaru and his Molten Soul dying his way to near victory. I can't help but imagine the looks on the faces of the fools who claimed that the Gravelord couldn't lose a battle of attrition.

    Alas, we suffered a complete and fatal lack of experience with the final boss. At least it was a hell of a struggle getting there. F rank all the way through!

    Some feedback:
    Guardian's Soul seems a little underwhelming, doesn't it? It's hard to pick over a more reliable survivability soul such as Radiant or Alchemist's. It does have great synergy with the other Mystic Guard related souls, but without them it just feels kind of weak.
    Omg. It's finally out?! This map is the reason I'm reinstalling SC2. Hope it's as good as the WC3 version!
