Strife Moba

Sifting through the most recent videos, it seems that there is some info on quite a few of the Heroes we’ll find in Strife. Although we have a few images of various Heroes, we do not have high resolution artwork or screenshots, so I’ll have to use stills from videos (hence the weird perspective and low quality). There are 12 Heroes thus far, all detailed below.

UPDATED: There are now 15 Heroes that are supposedly in the client since the PAX reveal. The newest addition is Bo, a cow-monk. You can refer to this post if which also includes the new updates.

Strife Moba

    Among all the heroes, I like Moxie the most. The skills work well with each other. For the physical looks, I like Vex’. I’m looking forward to posts like this in the future.
