Stealth… shadows… darkness… call it what you want. To me, it’s just what I was trained in, where I work best. Fight me if you wish, but just know, you’ll have to find me first.

This is an example of what Rubye’s Rift Daggers could look like. The idea is for them to have that same look as Sapphyr’s Rift Blades.

Bronze Ability:

Shadow Strike

  • Turns herself invisible for 10 seconds, and immediately throws two Rift Daggers at a targeted enemy, dealing x Damage, and Shield blocking the target for 10 seconds.

  • The targeted enemy is able to dodge the Rift Daggers. Every time an enemy dodges a Rift Dagger, she gains a charge of Bonus Attack.

  • Each time she gets a charge of Bonus Attack, she throws one extra dagger whenever Shadow Strike is used.

  • Maximum of 5 charges.

Silver Ability:

Protective Cloak

  • Shoots a beam at the allied hero with the lowest health, turning them invisible for 10 seconds, giving them immunity to all damage for 5 seconds, but leaves her vulnerable to attack.

  • During that 10 second invisibility, all health received is increased by 50%.

  • 1% for every 10 levels.

Gold Ability:

Essential Upgrades

  • When this hero is invisible, her weapon gains a 20% faster fire rate, and a 20% faster movement speed.

  • 2% for every 10 levels.

Platinum Ability:

Into the Shadows

  • Gains x Shield (small/medium) every second while she is invisible.

  • If she already has a shield equal to 50% of her current health, then the shield goes to the ally with the lowest health.

Ruby Ability: Supported

  • A skilled Support Hero can’t help their team if they’re down for the count. This hero gains a x Armor bonus and 30% increases chance to dodge.

Hey all! Thanks for checking this concept out. I’d love to hear what you thought of Rubye and her abilities!

In her name, it says Shadow Apprentice. Who do you think she’s apprenticed to? Take a guess! :wink:


She’s like a mix of Kunoichi & Sapphyr. :slightly_smiling_face:

Support. :+1:

Yes, it would honestly be a great counter to shielder teams, would be a very cool addition to the game


Definitely! Shield Blocking has always been something I’ve thought about. I think it would be pretty interesting to see and use.
