Voden is a hero appearing in Gigantic.

Official Summary[edit | edit source]

The forest-lord Voden is as old as the ancient banyan, yet as new as the morning dew. He lives for the wild hunt, and his prey is anything that would despoil the wilderness.

Official Rating Summary[edit | edit source]

Summary[edit | edit source]

Voden is an archer with incredible range. His poison cloud makes for ranged status effect damage, and he is best used at far ranges than it close combat, as his low health makes him a prime target for mobbing.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Voden is best summarized by one word - pressure. Voden doesn't super excel at much, because even though he might be impressive on paper, he certainly has some drawbacks that make him hard to manage. What he can do best, however, is apply pressure. Quick movements into the backfield, constant harassment, and ganking straggling heroes is the name of the game, and Voden plays that game well! His bow attacks, combined with his poison abilities, can make super quick work of most enemies.

Keep in mind though that his best skill the Super Jump, requires a ton of investment, and his other useful power, Natural Roots, has much the same investment. Voden is very flexible though, so these investments might be worth it given the situation and state of the battlefield.

Skins[edit | edit source]

Voden has a variety of skins from which to choose. These skins do not change skill sets or abilities, and appear to be strictly cosmetic. This list is based on the open beta, and will be re-visited once the game releases.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Voden is useless without stamina; accordingly, keep your eye on the stamina and make sure you have enough to get out of any situation quickly and with minimal damage.
  • Use the decoy to waste Hero attacks and force them into long cooldowns - this will enable a concerted effort team to wipe the floor with them, negating even the most efficient pushes.
  • Hidden Spring heals you and your allies, and should thus be placed where it's free from threat, but near enough to the fight to be beneficial to the team. Additionally, it provides a super jump powerup, allowing heroes to jump up to areas for sniping and distance shots.
  • Spread around your poison. Don't focus on just one target, as the poison does the same damage whether or not you're paying attention. Everyone getting a little hurt as opposed to one person getting really hurt is what you're aiming for.
  • Speed and Hidden Spring will allow you to harass the Guardian, keeping them out of combat and distracting the enemy.
  • Use the decoy to distract creatures, then tear them apart.
