You'll be seriously tempted to say this before you brutally dispose of your opponents.

Player descriptions and analysisEdit

Mantis embodies the principles of a hunter, Black Widow-style, but in ass-whoppingly gargantuan form. She is a single and multitarget DPS burst hero, with additional scout, harrassment and stealth capabilities. She has splendid movement and one mobility ability, two different stealth effects, a high damage AoE, and also throws in self-healing (though not quite at Aphid's level), a little stun/crowd control through equipment, and very high armor piercing into the mix. And she is, being a legendary hero, obscenely powerful. But really not overbearingly so. Forget yourself for a few seconds, and a group of the weakest enemies can bring her down, much like any other hero in the game. However, because of her particular focus and sustainability, she can make a mockery of some otherwise particularly hard missions, in some particular contexts. But it does not seem to me that these qualities are anything that would unbalance gameplay in PvP.

As Mantis' attack claws are the same as Black Widow's swords.
