Right now there is one hero with the fear mechanic in the game.
Fear is the most powerful mechanic in the game. It is an aoe displacement than cancels enemy movement and enemy skills.
When A ringo is using hellfire brew and Adagio is using verse of judgement while Skaarf is using dragonsbreath one stroke of fear will cancel all their skills and send them running.
Baptiste has this skill as his Ultimate, fearsome shade.
He is a midrange mage which sometimes doubles as captain because he has a lot of utility. He isn’t necessarily a great captain though.
I would love a giant fluffy beast hero. One that goes from cute to terrifying with skill usage. A capain hero with fear. Much like the old Gremlin movies where a fluffy critter turns into a freak.
