Heroics Effects

Effects at Each Level

Skill Effect
Increases attack power and defense when health drops to 35% or lower.
Level Effect by Level
1 While active, increases defense by 50 points.
2 Attack +5% and defense +50 while active.
3 Attack +5% and defense +100 while active.
4 Attack +10% and defense +100 while active.
5 While active, attack power +30% and defense-increasing effects are negated.

You lose Defense bonus at Lv. 5

Heroics provides a last line of defense stats for hunters that are on critical HP. However, at Lv. 5, you completely lose all these bonuses in exchange of a massive 30% bonus attack when your HP reaches critical threshhold.

Defense Boosting effects still work at Lv. 5!

Despite the misleading tooltip, defense-boosting effects like Armorskins, Hunting Horn Defense boosts, and every other defense boosting effect in the game will still work!

    • Give us the ability to change our layered armor display. What I mean is, ya know how armor looks different on the male and female models? well, I wish there was the ability to change the appearance from the male models of armor, to the female models, and the reverse without changing the gender of your character itself. This would be really nice, as imo some armor pieces look better as the male model version.
