Niru Pros & Cons


  • Unique "Cheat Death" Mechanic: Niru's ultimate, "Spirit Salvation," essentially gives an ally a second chance, offering unique protection.
  • Sustain: He provides some healing for his team with "Soul Drain."
  • Execution Potential: "Soul Reaping" deals significant damage to enemies with low health, giving him some finishing capability.
  • Damage Scaling: His damage abilities scale with the target's lost or max health, making him dangerous against tanky enemies as a fight progresses.
  • Self-Protection with Exclusive Skill: His Exclusive Skill can provide initial protection to himself or a chosen ally without costing energy.


  • Reliant on Ultimate: Much of Niru's unique utility comes from his ultimate, which has a cooldown.
  • Delayed Protection: His ultimate requires an ally to be near death before offering its benefit.
  • Reduced Damage in Spirit Form: While protected by "Spirit Salvation," the ally's damage output is decreased.
  • Single Target Focus: His ultimate protects only one ally at a time.
  • Healing is Reliant on Enemy HP: The healing from "Soul Drain" is less effective against low-health enemies.
