Strategy[edit | edit source]
Imani is easily one of the most powerful heroes in Gigantic, but she requires a player who knows how to best utilize her to unlock her true power. While on paper she is untouchable in terms of damage, she dies extremely quickly even with good support. Accordingly, as long as you keep Imani moving, snipe from different locations, and do your best to control the crowd, she's super powerful. Her skill, Silent Scope, increases damage the more time you stayed zoomed in, which leads to some pretty dramatic damage if used properly and with someone who has good aim.
Skin Lore[edit | edit source]
The Captain: There was never any doubt.Imani was the one calling the shots.
- Light Touch: Serving alongside the proud knights of Karakesh required both diplomatic and military skill.
- Dark Tidings: Her years as a mercenary captain earned Imani many friends. And enemies.
Eternal Master: “Only through discipline do we live up to the ideals of the Eternals.” - Imani
Operation RedHawk: As her company’s reputation grew, Imani’s services were sought everywhere in the world.
- Operation Goldhawk: Espionage called for a smaller crew and different tactics. Precision was the order of the day.
- Operation Greyhawk: There was no turning back once Zagyg’s creation had been unleashed.
Weapon Skin Lore[edit | edit source]
Blessings of Aurion: Imani had encountered many priests of Aurion, but these clerics were different. Compassion was not their chief concern.
Eternal Light: The gifts of the Eternals came from the City of Gods itself. Only the worthy could wield them.

Tips[edit | edit source]
- The Boom Bolt burning is super useful, and can really keep pressure on enemies over time. You can also use it to augment damage against tanks, because as they see their health moving, they're going to move further out from the center.
- Your attacks are all based on line of sight, so get right into the fray as soon as you can.
- Jump before using the upgraded Smoke Bomb for better survivability.
- Imani can be taken out really easily by assassins and snipers, so use Frost Bolt and Smoke Bomb often whenever you see the threat coming.
- use Autobolts instead of your scope, as your scope limits your vision and movement. Only using your scope when you need the distance is a great way to make yourself more useful.
- Preserve your stamina as best you can, because you're going to need it as the fast moving unit of your team.
