Rowan is the second son of Esperia’s youngest and possibly wealthiest noble house. The Patriarch, Reginald, is his father, but he wasn’t born into money. Beginning adulthood as a small trader, his business acumen proved uncanny to say the least. Where he had started as a young man with a case of simple goods, he is now a lord with titles, businesses, banks, and vast mining operations under his purview. Though normally a title and lands would only be awarded in recognition of some great deed, House Gilder have essentially bought their way into the aristocracy. Lords and Kings fight wars, and wars are expensive indeed. Reginald Gilder’s timely gifts and loans curried a great deal of favor among the older houses, and he in turn was rightly rewarded.

Rowan and his older brother Angelo, despite growing up around unimaginable wealth, were nonetheless raised by their lowborn father to be self-sufficient and savvy in their dealings. Wealth could be gained, but also lost and if lost, it would need to be regained. No amount of swordsmanship or battle strategy could buy what hundreds of shrewd deals had afforded the family. Angelo, being the old est, felt the weight of responsibility on his shoulders from an early age. The heir to a new house with much to prove, he was expected to maintain and increase the Gilder’s wealth and influence, and of course to marry strategically to this end.

The pressure of his new position, however, proved too much, and he abandoned his family home to pursue his true passion. Though this was all well and good for Angelo, it placed a large and unexpected burden on the
young Rowan.

Within a few scant weeks of his brother’s clandestine departure, Rowan was already named heir to the house and arranged to marry the youngest daughter of the king. For someone of such common lineage to marry into the royal family was unheard of, and Lord Gilder was understandably elated. As a symbol of the role he was to take on, he was gifted one of the single rarest and most expensive items that could be found anywhere in the world-a fortune duck, which had the ability to lay golden eggs. The only problem was that, in his years of educating the boys to be independent and self-sufficient, Lord Gilder had done perhaps too good a job.

Rowan thought of his future with the princess. It would be a life of great comfort, lived in a series of palaces and punctuated by holiday festivals and business acquisitions. He would eat the finest foods and never be contradicted. Armies of servants and sycophants would vie for his attention. He would never struggle. He would never be challenged. He would never get the real measure of himself. Thus, it was settled. Rowan would do as his brother before him and embark on his own path.

Late one night, he pilfered the castle workshop for handful of essential items, grabbing only the simplest garb and gear. It wouldn’t do to wander the realm dressed as a nobleman’s son, after all. Leaving a note on the workbench to apologize for the stolen goods and to assure the craftsmen they’d be quickly reimbursed, he set out to make his own fortune. After all, hadn’t this father done just the same, if not at as early an age? He would have one major advantage, however. The duck was coming with him.

Rowan had planned his escape carefully, and the searches over the next week turned up nothing. Though the young Princess Petra bristled at the perceived slight, Lord Gilder looked on the events with a sort of bemused acceptance. His son may have insulted the monarch himself, possibly even earning the perpetual ire of the princess, but he had done something far more commendable than what had been asked of him. He thought of his own time on the road and smiled. Somewhere far away, Rowan hoisted his bag and walked one step closer to the destiny he would create for himself.

HERO SKILLS

Dazzle

Rowan throws copious amounts of gold coins onto the battlefield which 3 random targets will receive every 0.5 seconds.

If the coins are received by any enemies, they will be stunned for 4 seconds.

Level 81: Allies recover 60 energy points.
Level 161: Allies recover 70 energy points.

Avian Assault

Rowan’s duck attacks the nearest enemy multiple times for 60% damage each, causing the enemy’s accuracy to drop by 120 points for 10 seconds while also allowing Rowan to steal 80 of the enemy’s energy points Lv.2: Damage increased by up to 70%.

Level 21: Damage increased by up to 70%.
Level 101: Steals 120 energy points.
Level 181: Damage increased by up to 80%.

Healthy Supplies

After entering the battlefield, Rowan sets up a supply stall and places 3 health potions upon it. When a nearby ally’s health drops below 50% a potion will be used to restore 30% of their max health. Each hero may use a potion once every 5 seconds.

Level 121: After all health potions have been consumed, Rowan will call in more supplies.
Level 201: Restores 40% of max health.

Damage Control

When Rowan receives damage that exceeds 10% of his max health, he will use his energy to mitigate the damage, causing him to lose energy instead of health. This ability can be used once every 3 seconds. Energy lost when using this ability is determined by the damage which is mitigated. A maximum of 80 energy points can be used to mitigate damage.

Level 141: Rowan recovers 20 energy per second.
Level 221: Energy lost when using ability reduced to 50 energy points.

Pairing Rowan together with Lucius is actually SUPER broken.
He gives so much energy that Lucius ulti will be PERMANENT.
Lucius will cast ulti, then before it even expires he will have ulti again, literally zero cooldown.
Unkillable stall team.

Rowan is amazing. His heal is available as soon as the match starts, and is not ult reliant. A lot of times, his heals buys my team enough time for them to use their ulti. He mitigates damage, gives energy, steals energy, heals, buff attacks, and stuns.

Not gonna lie, Rowan is one of the best heroes I’ve ever used. I use him in this team:
Front: Hendrik, Lucius
Back: Shemira, Rowan, Tasi
This guy gives so much energy. As my heroes have all very strong Ult’s, this is the hero to go for.

We use the same team! I switch him out though with Nemora when I need to, but he is main boy. And sometimes switch Tasi with Mehira. But it is still pretty cool to find somebody else using the same heroes.

gimmick hero, not so useful

His gimmic is being a battery, he produces more energy for the team than any other unit in the game, which is something the Lightbearer faction can make full use of, making him the perfect support for LB teams. The LB tanks, Lucius and Hendrick can both stand to have their ult available as soon as possible, as this will insure the team does not get burst down. When paired with a ult-reliant unit like belinda, who can easily kill 1-3 targets with her ult if built right and the energy gained from the kill(s) will greatly decrease the downtime… Read more »

I have tried Elite+ Rowan with Elite Rosaline in Wrizz. Highest output compared to other combinations of other LB. I use Shemira main and Estrilda. Maybe Thane/Raine for the last slot. I need to make more tests but so far, he’s been pretty good wink
