Jandice Barov

Mistress of Illusions

When the roles on Heroesfire get updated she will be in the support tab.



Jandice is the mistress of illusions. A character with a title as such surely must have a lot of tricks up her sleeves. That's exactly what this concept is all about. She is not only limited to her abilities, but also many castable talents, making her a hero with great late-game strength. Most of her damage dealing spells will be chosen as talents later, making her fairly weak in early fights when it comes to damage, but has insane utility to compensate for that.
