Hero Introduction

Chimeria the Changeling is a ranged agility hero with the ability to summon illusions using with his first ability, Silhouette. These illusions are unique in that they spawn invisible and will slow movement and deal full damage when it breaks the invisibility by attacking. Spectrum Shift grants him invisibility for quite a brief period, but lasts shorter in the presence of enemy heroes. Gaze Fire is his single target nuke which deals magical damage and mini-stuns, but deal pure damage and stuns much longer if the target faces Chimeria. His ultimate, Chameleon, allows him to rapidly sap away stats from a single target through channeling while also passively and temporarily grants him a percentage of the stats of killed enemies.

Due to the limitations of his invisibility skills, Chimeria must use it to reposition himself for effective Silhouette illusion placement and face-on Gaze Fire instead of actual escapes. His invisible illusions can be used as a short, powerful and surprise movement slow as well as undiminished damage on their first attack. The undiminished damage on the first attacks make it easy for enemies to mistaken it for the actual hero breaking from Spectrum Shift allowing Chimeria to take advantage of their reactions whether they approach or use valuable spells on (good bait and kiting) or run. All his abilities allows him and enemies to reposition for the more powerful Gaze Fire. Spectrum Shift is generally the simpler way in which he can safely walk in front of the enemy. Silhouette, depending on their reaction, can force the enemy to turn towards Chimeria. Enemies who try to disrupt his ultimate channeling must also face him. The stat steal from successful Chameleon saps and kills can turn the tides from his nature of avoiding direct combat to becoming more fit in a fight.
