Hero Attributes

Drawn from deep within.

Hero Attributes are aspects of Strength, Agility, and Intelligence found in all heroes. Every hero gains a constant amount per level. The specific amount is unique for each hero.

Attributes determine the scaling values of:

Primary Attribute[edit]

Each hero specializes in one of the three attributes. This is called the Primary Attribute.
