Mogul Khan, the Axe, is a melee strength hero, infamous for creating chaos in battle and thriving off of it. He is commonly played as an initiator, as his potent disables can disrupt the enemy’s formation and give his team openings in fights. Axe’s fighting style demands that he gets up close and very personal, as he can taunt enemies into attacking him with Berserker’s Call, preventing them from engaging his teammates and granting him a huge amount of bonus armor. Once he has the enemy’s attention, he can counter those who strike him with a sweeping Counter Helix that slashes all enemies at melee range with pure damage. He also has a slow and damage-over-time nuke in Battle Hunger, which can harass the enemy or force them to join in battle, while also slowing their movement speed and boosting his own. Finally, he has the ability to unconditionally remove weakened enemies from the battlefield if they are under a certain threshold with Culling Blade, while simultaneously boosting his allies’ speed. A bloodthirsty and indomitable warrior, Axe’s presence on the battlefield is felt by friend and foe alike, dominating the attention of the enemy wherever he goes.
1. Berserker’s Call – Axe taunts nearby enemy units, forcing them to attack him, while he gains bonus armor during the duration.
2. Battle Hunger – Enrages an enemy unit, causing it to take damage over time until it kills another unit or the duration ends. The damage is increased by a factor of Axe’s armor. The enemy is also slowed as long as he’s facing away from Axe.
3. Counter Helix – When attacked, Axe has a chance to perform a helix counter attack, dealing pure damage to all nearby enemies.
4. Culling Blade – Axe spots a weakness and strikes, instantly killing an enemy unit with low health, or dealing moderate damage otherwise. When an enemy hero is killed with Culling Blade, its cooldown is reset, and Axe and nearby allied units gain bonus movement speed.
