The Purifier Adept

Talis is team-based ranged assassin hero. Her main role is to deal sustained damage to enemies while keeping herself alive. She also has a side role as support hero, giving speed boosts to allied heroes when necessary and pairing well with another DPS hero in her team.

Talis can serve as an artillery attacker if using trait talent build, as a pusher support through an energize build and as a mage with Purifier Orb ability.

Note: This concept is idea-based, so i didn't include numbers such as damage, attack speed, cooldown, cast range and others, because balancing isn't my strong part.
