Felicia the Flamekissed

Another one of the announced heroes for Wrath of Heroes is Felicia.  She is a Bright Wizard who specializes in  blowing stuff up with fire.  BioWare Mythic has started to release some promo videos for each hero called the Armory, which so far are very cool.  Read on for more details about Felicia and a video.

Entry into the Bright College of Altdorf is reserved to the limited few who, through connections or extraordinary luck, are granted a place within. The unlucky majority are usually hunted down and dispatched by traveling Witch Hunters for the crime of hedge wizardry.  It is a fate that Felicia Garret, affectionately known as the Flamekissed, all too narrowly escaped.

The exact details of her infraction remain unclear but rumors paint a chilling portrait of an apprentice forced to call down the flames upon a Magister that had become corrupted by Chaos. What is known is that in her third year at the Bright College the bulk of the Bright Council was called to extinguish a conjuration of Spreading Flames so powerful that an entire College wing was reduced to slag. Within a matter of days Felicia was passed into journeyman status and assigned to the regiment of Order forces farthest from the Empire and coincidentally the Bright College itself.

Since then Felicia has remained on the battlefield. What she lacks in control she more than  makes up for in brute force. All of her attacks have the potential to spread to nearby enemies which makes close quarter combat something of a specialty of hers.


  • Between Fiery Blast and Rain of Fire, Felicia is well equipped to keep enemies at a distance.  Use this to your advantage, and keep moving!
  • Flame Breath deals a very high amount of damage, but only works at close range and needs a few seconds to reach full effectiveness.  It's best used when your teammates are distracting the enemies for you.
  • Whenever possible, hold Conflagration of Doom back until you can find a pack of several enemies.  If you coordinate with your teammates, rooting an entire group of enemies in place can quickly turn the fight in your favor.
  • Felicia is vulnerable to Heroes that are resistant to magical damage or nullify her crowd control effects.  Thagison does both - watch out for him!
