    There is a spelling mistake for Grezhul: “summon undead minions which will distact enemies.”, it should be “distract” though.

    Why would Vedan need Dura’s Grace? It only shields heroes when they use their Ult and he already can’t be attacked for several seconds when he uses his.

    Love the effort of putting up guides and fixing stuff here. A big thumbs up for the guy who’s doing all of these. I hope someone will explain how does Estrilda’s damage reduction work. It doesn’t seem to have any effect. I’m at 11-33. Been Playing for Almost a month and barely 2 weeks. I have mythic Brutos lvl 160, Mythic Estrilda lvl 141, Legend+ Sylvina lvl 127, Legend Mireal lvl 127, Legend Raine lvl 127. I’m planning go for 4 light and Brutos. Any suggestions for a better line up?

    There’s a mistake with Isabella’s description
    “Isabella is leeches…”
    When it should be
    “Isabella leeches…”

    Just wanted to let you guys know πŸ™‚

    Will there be more specific Hero guides like the ones for Brutis, Shemira, and Tasi? It would be great to have them for all the mythic heroes at least.
