Athena’s Ability

Passive: Reach

After using an ability, Athena launches a ranged Basic Attack that hits all foes, passes through them, and deals the first enemy struck with 50% more damage. Damage from Reach activates Basic Attack Item Effects but not Ability effects.

Skill 1: Preemptive Strike

Athena gets ready to sprint. Athena will dash past minions, pause, and strike the first enemy god she comes across while slowing and doing damage to everyone she strikes. Athena earns one stack of Block (maximum of three) if she strikes an adversary. This allows her to deflect any god’s next Basic Attack.

Skill 2: Confound

A shockwave of force is released from Athena’s shield, taunting the gods who oppose her and compelling them to engage in combat or flee.

Skill 3: Shield Wall

When the Athenian soldiers are summoned, they do damage right away and then strike for more damage after two seconds.

Ultimate: Defender of Olympus

Anywhere in the universe, Athena chooses one of her allies, propels herself into the air, and 3.6 seconds later, she lands close to that deity. Both Athena and the allied god receive 35% Damage Mitigation during those 3.6 seconds. When Athena lands, enemies in the area suffer damage.
