The Hybrids Guide
The Hybrids are each a combination of two other types:
Lawbringer = Heavy/Vanguard
Nobushi = Vanguard/Assassin
Valkyrie = Heavy/Assassin Since they're each a different combination, they share fewer common traits than heroes of the other types. Still, they share one important thing: They all wield long-range weapons and are good at zoning.
Hybrids are good picks in all modes. Their surprising moves and tactics make them difficult to predict, so in good hands they can be efficient duelists, deadly in Duel and Brawl. With their zoning and support capabilities, they can also be very efficient in team-based modes. In Dominion, building the Renown score of a Hybrid is all about seizing opportunities on the battlefield. Depending on the situation, the same action could reward more or less Renown.
Each of the three Hybrids has its own combat specialty.
- The Lawbringer's gameplay relies heavily on parries. Parrying successfully with the Lawbringer opens the opponent to diverse efficient attacks.
- The Nobushi's gameplay relies mostly on her long range (the longest in the game), her Hidden Stance, and the bleed properties of some of her attacks.
- The Valkyrie's gameplay relies on her ability to charge her heavy attacks while still defending a guard.
