This colossal beast once led a race of giants. When he began abusing his power, they created a potion and hid it in his food. But the potion was so powerful, it caused him to grow a venomous eye. Now anything he looks at is instantly blighted.

OverviewEdit

If Balor was that cruel with his own kind, can you imagine what he can do to his rivals on the battlefield? He can double his maximum life and have all single-target enemy attacks directed towards him, like the tank he is, but he can also deal damage and apply torture effects like Area Quicksand and Poison. Balor has just one eye, but it will be useless for his rivals to have two when all of them suffer from his Total Blind effects at the same time! While being an overall solid monster, he does suffer from some flaws. His speed and power are pretty low and his health for more modern tanks isn't that high.

Pros:

  • Low stamina costs
  • AoE Total Blind
  • Self-sustaining with a Self Regen and Self 50% Heal skill
  • Double-Health + Taunt

Cons:

  • High cooldowns outside of his Poison skills
  • Deny Skills only apply Total Blind
  • Low speed
  • Outdated life stat for a tank
  • Outclassed by better tanks with Taunt and Mega Taunt
  • Sword Relic is useless since he's a tank
