Ruby’s Skills and Abilities
Let’s dance! (Passive Skill)
Be good! (1st Skill)
Don’t run, Wolf King! (2nd Skill)
I’m offended! (Ultimate Skill)

Let’s dance! (Passive Skill)

Despite Ruby’s basic attack having no lifesteal effect, her skills receive 125% bonus lifesteal effect from equipment and emblems. Ruby, however, has a passive 5% physical lifesteal effect of her own.

After she uses a skill, Ruby can roll to another location a short distance away, increasing her physical and magical defense in the process for a short period of time thereafter. The increase in defensive power can stack up to three times and can intensify even more the higher Ruby’s level gets.

‘Let’s dance!’ is Ruby’s most important skill. In essence, it is the skill that defines her. It provides her skills with insane amounts of lifesteal (provided that she equips effective lifesteal items and emblems), a bit of maneuverability with the rolling effect triggering after each cast of her skills, and overwhelming defensive power. Keep in mind that this passive skill allows Ruby to possess tremendous durability similar to that of a tank hero. Ultimately, Ruby is one of the most durable and most imperishable fighter heroes in the game!

Be good! (1st Skill)

Using her death scythe, Ruby lunges forward to deliver a slash dealing 75 [+75% Total Physical Attack] physical damage and an impact wave dealing 75 [+75% Total Physical Attack] physical damage to the enemies in front of her. The enemies hit by this skill have their movement speed reduced for 2 seconds subsequently.

  • Skill Level 1 – 75 Base Damage, 75 Diffuse Damage, 6 Seconds Cooldown, 40 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 2 – 95 Base Damage, 95 Diffuse Damage, 5.6 Seconds Cooldown, 40 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 3 – 115 Base Damage, 115 Diffuse Damage, 5.2 Seconds Cooldown, 40 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 4 – 135 Base Damage, 135 Diffuse Damage, 4.8 Seconds Cooldown, 40 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 5 – 155 Base Damage, 155 Diffuse Damage, 4.4 Seconds Cooldown, 40 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 6 – 175 Base Damage, 175 Diffuse Damage, 4 Seconds Cooldown, 40 Mana Consumption

‘Be good!’ is Ruby’s most spammable skill. It can be used to consistently harass enemy heroes and clear out minion waves. Since this skill has a ‘slow’ debuff built in to it, it can be very effective to use when chasing enemy heroes or trying to escape. The best way to use this skill is to activate it in conjunction with ‘Don’t run, Wolf King!’ Time the combo properly and you will be able to reap a lot of HP, deal some decent damage, and slow the enemies down—all at the same time!

Don’t run, Wolf King! (2nd Skill)

Ruby maneuvers her death scythe to deliver two deadly slashes in an area around her. Both slashes deal 40 [+55% Total Physical Attack] physical damage to the enemies surrounding Ruby, stunning them for 0.5 seconds, and slowly pulling them toward Ruby. Note that this skill deals 30% bonus damage to the enemies located in the outer ring of the range of attack.

  • Skill Level 1 – 40 Base Damage, 7 Seconds Cooldown, 50 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 2 – 60 Base Damage, 7 Seconds Cooldown, 55 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 3 – 80 Base Damage, 7 Seconds Cooldown, 60 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 4 – 100 Base Damage, 7 Seconds Cooldown, 65 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 5 – 120 Base Damage, 7 Seconds Cooldown, 70 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 6 – 140 Base Damage, 7 Seconds Cooldown, 75 Mana Consumption

Despite the weak damage, ‘Don’t run, Wolf King!’ is a pretty nifty crowd control skill. Every time it is used, nearby enemies receive damage, suffer a 0.5 stun effect, and get pulled toward Ruby. This skill is best used for luring enemies and preventing them from escaping. And since Ruby doesn’t deal much damage herself, it is best to ensure that you have allies nearby to deliver the more serious blows. Other than that, you can use this skill alongside ‘Be good!’ to inflict sustained damage and some nasty debuffs on the enemies as you and your team try to wither their HP down.

I’m offended! (Ultimate Skill)

For her ultimate skill, Ruby extends her death scythe in a wide range in front of her dealing 205 [+180% Total Physical Attack] physical damage, pulling all the enemies within range toward her, and stunning them for 0.5 seconds.

  • Skill Level 1 – 205 Base Damage, 26 Seconds Cooldown, 80 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 2 – 340 Base Damage, 23 Seconds Cooldown, 100 Mana Consumption
  • Skill Level 3 - 475 Base Damage, 20 Seconds Cooldown, 120 Mana Consumption

‘I’m offended!’ is Ruby’s most damaging and most supportive skill. Basically, it’s an upgraded version of both ‘Be good!’ and ‘Don’t run, Wolf King!’ This skill has considerable damage, decent range, a useful pull effect, and a short stun effect. It is best used in preventing enemy heroes from escaping or initiating a team clash. Also, using ‘I’m offended!’ with the right timing in conjunction with Ruby’s other skills provide a lot of damage, a sizable amount of lifesteal, and multiple instances of crowd control debuffs. It can be difficult to target this skill properly, so be sure to always get as close as you can to the enemy heroes and have your allies behind you ready for backup and attack.
