Uraeus Hero Review:

Uraeus is the first hero with a special skill that can bypass minions (as opposed to destroying or stealing them)

I am highly sceptical that such an effect will make a meaningful impact on it’s own. If working concurrently with other effects that by pass/destroy minions, then there is potential.

Combined overall, Uraeus really just helps to keep the minions numbers in check. (426 damage is about the health of 1 minion). Each activation of Uraeus special is therefore roughly equivalent of removing one minion from each enemy hero and dealing some damage to a single target.

Uraeus Offensive raid Review

Freya and Bera are both relatively popular minion generators that see play now. Can Uraeus keep up with them?

Uraeus will indeed be able to impact them quite significantly, as he can potentially take out Freya or Bera much more effectively than other sniper style heroes, will keeping their minions in check.

Overall, I think Uraeus is going to be another extremely situational hero, whereby the use case is determined if the secondary effect of his special can get to see any action.

Otherwise, Uraeus is just a slower Joon.

Uraeus in Defense Team Review

I think Uraeus is too situational to have a place in the defensive team, and there are many other “easier to get” heroes that can fulfil a better role than Uraeus.

  1. Uraeus affects all enemies with a minion, not just the target. Also his dot is affected by troops so the damage will actually be greater than the 426. I think he will be quite effective, especially in this current meta.

    1. I do agree that he will be quite useful in this current meta – that is the reason why he has a relatively higher rating for Offense and war, as compared to the defence grades.
