Glamorous pop star turned assassin Shinbi has been announced, and is coming to Predecessor February 21!
Shinbi is a melee assassin who specializes in mobility and sustain, able to quickly jump into a fight, burst down an enemy, and then dash away while letting her spirit wolves finish off her target.
As one of the heroes from the original Paragon, let's dive in to her original Paragon kit, as her abilities in Predecessor are likely to be similar:
Shinbi Abilities (not confirmed)
Shinbi dashes forward, passing through enemies, dealing ability damage. Retrigger within 3 seconds to dash a second time.
Shinbi summons a Spirit Wolf that runs in a straight line, passes through minions, deals ability damage, and explodes on contact with an enemy hero.
Shinbi summons 4 Spirit Wolves that circle her for 4 seconds, dealing ability damage per second in an AOE. Each hit restores Shinbi's health.
Passive: All of Shinbi's abilities apply +1 Wolf Stack per hit to enemy heroes, building up to 8 stacks. Stacks last for 10 seconds, and the duration resets when new stacks are applied.
Active: Shinbi summons a pack of Spirit Wolves to attack the closest target with the highest number of Wolf Stacks, sending one wolf for every stack. Each wolf deals ability damage.
