Charnok is a hero appearing in Gigantic.
Official Summary[edit | edit source]
For the dragons, "altitude" became synonymous with "prestige." They abandoned the lowlands entirely, constructing mountaintop towers in a ruinous "race to the sky."
—Bronze Tomes of Storyteller Shao, Vol. 4
Official Rating Summary[edit | edit source]
Charnok has relatively middling stats with one exception - his damage is phenomenal! This should hint as to what he was designed to do, as Charnok is a DPS dealer through and through.
Summary[edit | edit source]
Charnok is one of the most powerful heroes in Gigantic, with maybe one or two arguable contenders.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Charnok is incredibly powerful, and this simply can't be overstated. This is the character of choice for DPS dealers, largely because his primary is hugely damaging and his secondaries have huge area of effect and conal areas of damage. Charnok can carry an entire team if used properly, but because he's DPS and not a tank, don't expect him to soak up too much damage. Even a well-coordinated team of two can easily take down Charnok if you're not paying attention, so you really need to pay attention.
Skin Lore[edit | edit source]
The Pyromancer: Any drakkor can breathe fire. Only a wizard can master it.
- Water and Flame: A senior drakkor magus wears the turquoise of the sea, a boast that no water can quench his flame.
- Golden Glory: Gold melts easily under the flame. A master Pyromancer shows his control with adornments of gold.
Eternal Master: Charnok was drawn not to the Ethernals themselves but to the reverence others held for them.
A Cult of Power: Elevated by House Devaedra, charnok achieved new heights of prestige and power.
- A Cult of Greed: With power came greed. He hoarded wealth like a dragon of old.
- A Cult of Fire: They followed him as supreme archmagus and revered him as the living embodiment of fire.
Ancestral ways: A year in the ancestral homeland was transformative in more ways then one.
- Ancestral Might: The ancestors held a more primal connection to the source of their power.
- Ancestral Secrets: There was a time before the Drakkor commanded the flame.
Weapon Skin Lore[edit | edit source]
Blessings of Aurion: A mage like Charnock would be greatly tempted by the enemy. A direct approach would be his only path to salvation.
Eternal Light: The gifts of the Eternals came from the City of Gods itself. Only the worthy could wield them.

Tips[edit | edit source]
- Detonate is a great escape skill as well as a damage skill.
- Dragon's Breath, when upgraded, has a good pushback, which is a good push neutralizer. You can also use this skill to temporarily push back DPS or Tank role enemies, negating a lot of their early benefit.
- Your Focus might be strong, but it's dodgeable. Push enemies against the walls or corner them to deal huge damage.
- Detonate is a great "shock and awe" skill. Use it, then immediately chase down enemies to wipe out even strong teams.
- Stay near your team, as you can take quite a bit more damage and distract enemies with your increased damage output.
- Keeping Charnok out of the main fight until enemies are low health is an effective strategy, as it can turn the tide of combat extremely quickly (especially if your team is low in health as well).
