Name: Azhor
Rarity: Legendary
Class: Defender
Faction: The Nightmare Council

 

Azhor has a basic attack that deals physical damage to 1 enemy and each attack builds energy in his hammer, with 10 stacks entering Heated State. His Talent grants his attacks a 30% chance to inflict Stun for 1 second while the hammer is in Heated State. His ultimate skill, Tempering Strikes, lasts 15 seconds, causing his attacks to deal 120% (upgraded to 140%) AoE damage to up to 5 enemies in front of him, and removes Heated State from the hammer when it ends. His first passive ability, Master Craftsman, causes each attack to increase his Defence by 1% (upgraded to 2%), up to 10 stacks, and he gains an extra 10% (upgraded to 25%) Attack and Defence while the hammer is in Heated State. His second passive ability, Fortifying Sparks, triggers when Tempering Strikes is active, with each attack granting a random ally within 3 tiles a shield equal to 100% of Azhor's Defence for 10 seconds, and if the hammer is in Heated State, also increasing their Attack by 10% for 10 seconds.

 

Talent: Attacks have a 30% chance to inflict Stun for 1 second while the hammer is in Heated State.

 

Awaken 1: When attacking, grants a 10% chance to trigger Fortifying Sparks.

Awaken 3: Extends the duration of Tempering Strikes by 1 second.

Awaken 5: Heated State is no longer removed when Tempering Strikes ends.

 

Ultimate: Tempering Strikes lasts 15 seconds, causing his attacks to deal 120% (upgraded to 140%) AoE damage to up to 5 enemies in front of him, and removing Heated State from the hammer when it ends.

Summary: Azhor is a defender with a basic attack range who deals physical damage. Unfortunately, there really isn't anything positive to be said regarding Azhor, he is a very mediocre tank who lacks versatility or any strong abilites to make him a good tank. His upgrades are very weak by comparison to other defenders, even Epics, and his awakenings are abysmal. The random nature of his shield placement is just the final nail in his coffin. Azhor honestly doesn't stand out in any area of the game, and I sincerely hope he gets a complete rework soon.
