HoN Hero Spotlight: Legionnaire

Play Heroes of Newerth for FREE: http://www.heroesofnewerth.com/

Legionnaires, the namesakes of the Legion itself, bring unflinching power to the battlefield. With their massive battle-axes, these warriors spread carnage among their foes and cleave bloody swaths through enemy ranks. Even those daemons born of fear itself can be terrified by these heroes of the Legion.

This month’s Classic Hero Spotlight focuses on Legionnaire, a sturdy hero who causes disarray in the hearts of his enemies. Legionnaire’s main role is to absorb damage and draw fire through various abilities that help him focus on his defensive prowess. With all of his abilities together, Legionnaire is able to force enemy heroes to attack him, so items that increase his defensive abilities are core.

Legionnaire will have a special, limited time skin arriving this Friday!

These are the men and women who take command of the forces that defend Newerth from the Hellbourne hoard. They give new meaning to the word hero and all men come to their call — RALLY!

Play Heroes of Newerth for FREE: www.heroesofnewerth.com When the war spread from the northlands into the jungles of Newerth, both man and Deamon discovered why the natives call the land “Death’s Cradle.” Creatures warped from the chaos of the past abide in these forbidden lands, where beasts are prey and plants are predator.
