Hero Details


Fawkes is a hero that was added in patch 1.15.01. He’s a lightbearer and his primary role is dealing damage and removing enemy buffs.

His ultimate ability “Purification” is extremely strong when the timing lines up, it’s capable of removing buffs such as the immunity shield on Brutus. Considering how strong Brutus is in the current meta, this can be very useful on levels that feature him. It can also remove CC from allies.

He has a single-target CC that will completely lockdown a random enemy. It’s similar to Tasi’s “Banishment”, but it lasts for up to 9 seconds.

A very strong hero overall, and another fine addition to the lightbearers roster that was looking quite thin before the last couple of patches.

Lore


Fawkes is a man of few words and there are very few people alive who know his story. Even his real name is seldom used, with most of those in the business referring to him as “Death’s Defeat”- a nickname he acquired through his reputation as a top tier vanquisher of the undead and unnatural. Fawkes pursues his quarry relentlessly, and handles them without mercy.

On the rare occasion that he isn’t working, Fawkes lives a quiet, simple life. Unlike most people, adventure equates to work. This wasn’t always the case, however. As child, he would often venture deep into the dark forests near his home, disappearing into the trees for hours or even days at a time. He wasn’t, however, alone. Fawkes had a companion who matched his childish temerity, Raine.

Once, when exploring the dark heart of the wood, the two young adventurers stumbled upon a yawning cavern. Unable to resist the temptation, they ventured inside. Their luck was against them that day. The cavern was the workspace of a murderous necromancer. The necromancer was present when they entered. He couldn’t let his secret get out, and besides, two fresh bodies were a valuable asset in his line of study.

The two children were no match for the necromancer empowered with vile spells. They were restrained, and the ritual began. Wicked knives were placed beside altars, and strange symbols were drawn on the floor in animal blood. In a twist of extreme fortune, a group of demon hunters had witnessed the children’s entry to the cave and had followed them in, using them as a welcome distraction to catch their prey by surprise. They barreled in, weapons bared and protective incantations swirling around them. Though they had the drop on their target, he managed to escape.

The ritual hadn’t progressed far enough to begin the sacrifices, but nonetheless the children weren’t completely unscathed. Fawkes had already been infected by an incorporeal parasite, an entity possessing an intelligence and a will of its own. Through the stern and careful instruction of his saviors, he learned to control the thing that lived in his left hand. The group trained Fawkes and Raine in the ways of combat, tracking, and survival. Eventually Fawkes even learned to use the parasite as a power source invigorating him with a power unknown to most common folk. The parasite’s will still pulls at his mind, but he’ll never succumb to its force.

Fawkes has no permanent home. He is a nomad, wandering the land in search of those who would inflict their dark machinations on others. Wherever he finds them, he tears them out root and stem.

It seem to vary some times, he takes the same target like 5 times in a row then all of a sudden switch to another only to go back to the first target again the next 3 times. I also believed he targeted the strongest enemy but I think its the one that has inflicted the most dmg at the time… so one if five someone crit on the first attack hence the switch. Another thing that would support this theory is that when starting a fight he always does 1 normal attack first then follow up with the coffin.… Read more »

how he choose who to coffin?
i repeat the figths with same team&combination but he changes his target.
when he targets Kaz or Silvina, both can easily block it and he became useless.
how to avoid this and make him attack to backline?

The coffin is completely random. Also considering how they have such a high dodge chance. its hard to even kill they or lock them.

Bump, I guess? I find it kinda big bs that his cc is one of the best in the game and it has “no criteria” but manages to hit the same character on my team 5 times back to back.

From using him he seems to use it on the strongest enemy at the time. You can kind of tell since that one has been hit the least or is far away from the battle. Another thing to note is the enemy pulled will be released in front of him, so Fawkes can pull that mage/archer in the corner into the thick of the battle, or even to a more favorable match up (attribute bonus-wise).

I always get this hero on Labyrinth.
I love his CC, making the battle an instant 4vs5.
