Each week six heroes are temporarily unlocked for play in Casual and Private games. Try any of the heroes listed below before unlocking them with Glory or ICE!

 

PHINN (ROAM/PROTECTOR)

Phinn is an unstoppable tank who brings the fight to him. He pairs incredibly well with other heroes who don’t back down from battle. Phinn is strongest with defense and utility items, and he’s able to absorb immense amounts of punishment, protecting teammates while they dish out damage.


 

FORTRESS (JUNGLE/PROTECTOR)

This Halcyon Well guardian is a snarling, frightening sight in the jungle. He stalks prey, closes in with teammates, flanks targets and creates challenging, multi-front confrontations. Start Fortress in the jungle, stay near your allies and bite and claw your way to kills.


 

RONA (JUNGLE/WARRIOR)

Rona is a deadly berserker who is always ready to leap into battle. She holds her own in melee combat, unleashing enormous damage on everyone who stands and fights. Rona is best played in the jungle, pairs well with protectors and works well with both weapon and crystal builds.


 

SKYE (LANE/SNIPER)

Skye is a swift sniper able to dance at the edge of fights or dive deep into the enemy backline to kill key targets. Skye’s unique strafing attacks change the complexion of fights, and her ability to chase down and catch opponents is unparalleled. Start Skye in the lane, mow down minions and build weapon or crystal depending on your playstyle.


 

RINGO (LANE/SNIPER)

Ringo is often played as the primary damage dealer for his team. He can shoot at blinding speeds and finish off fleeing enemies with an epic fireball that follows foes across the battlefield. Incredibly weak in the early game, Ringo players should focus on earning as much gold as possible in the lane before picking big fights.


 

OZO (JUNGLE/WARRIOR)

A carnival monkey never lets silly things like danger and fear keep him from a great time. Ozo runs straight into chaotic fights, bounces off heads and delivers big time area-of-effect damage with his razor-sharp ring. Build some defense items to keep Ozo in combat, and look for combinations of nearby enemies to maximize Ozo’s damage.


ABOUT THE FREE HERO ROTATION

The free hero rotation unlocks six heroes each week to play as long and as much as you want in the Casual queue. It’s an opportunity to test drive heroes before using ICE or Glory to unlock them.

The free rotation changes every Tuesday and heroes in the rotation usually won’t return for a few weeks or months afterward, so unlocking heroes is always worthwhile. The free rotation does not apply to Ranked play to ensure players are already very familiar with the heroes they play in that try-hard environment with skill tiers at stake.
