Play Style[edit | edit source]
A wizard-type assassin demigod. He has two modes he can switch between: Ice, which is centered around crowd control, and Fire, which is centered around damage dealing. While the Fire & Ice level 15 skill allows for some synergy, the Torchbearer wastes precious seconds if he has to constantly switch modes mid-fight. Since he must continue to level up his skills so that they remain relevant as the game progresses, and enemies become tougher, the Torchbearer is typically bottle-necked into using only a handful of his spells.
The Torchbearer is quite fragile and must depend on his range to fight from a safe distance, lest he be overpowered.
Fire and Ice[edit | edit source]
One of the Torchbearer's level 15 skills is called fire and ice. It is a large damage boost to both deep freeze and fireball, but it requires the aforementioned skills to be fully leveled up. Though some may choose to play a fire-focused Torchbearer, or an ice-focused Torchbearer, by utilizing the quick switch from fire to ice and the ability fire and ice one may create a powerful dual-element Torchbearer. Through fire and ice Torchbearer is granted two 1350 direct damage attacks (deep freeze with biting chill and frost nova, and fireball) along with the 800 from rain of ice and the stun from frost nova. The end result is a build that gives fire the control it lacks and gives ice the damage it lacks.
