This week’s beta patch for Heroes of Newerth introduced the latest character to the ever growing hero roster. Sand Wraith is pretty much a straight up port of DOTAs Spectre… except  the gender, and obviously the model have been changed.

Check out the skill set after the break!

Desert’s Curse
The Sand Wraith calls upon the endless Desert’s Curse, covering the ground ahead of him with sand. Enemies caught in the sand are slowed while the Sand Wraith can move faster and is unhindered by cliffs or trees.

The Sand Wraith can prey on those who are alone, granting him increased damage when an enemy is not near any allies.

Using sand itself as a shield, the Sand Wraith reduced incoming damage and reflects it back to any enemies around him.

The Sand Wraith tricks the mind, causing an illusion of himself to appear next to all enemy heroes and attack them. At any moment he wished, the Sand Wraith can take the place of one of those illusions.


So far I’ve played two matches with him: first game I got pummeled, second game I led the team to victory with 17:2 kill:deaths… he’s certainly great for ganking, but as far as team presence goes, I suspect he’ll end up similar to a scout class (pop in, steal kill, run away).

  1. Seems pretty formidable. I might as well enjoy HoN while it’s in beta, and free!

  2. I think it’s time for the Gamer Limit crew to get together again for some HoN action!

  3. Spectre was pretty hardcore in DotA, it’s no surprise that Sand Wraith is really good.

    This hero sucks period.

  6. Seriously, I love him.
    He’s the ultimate in gankage.

    Amatar07, i sent you an email.

  7. Spectre is more of a hard carry imo, but good lord, he’s outrageously good. He was def one of the best in DotA – very hard to kill if farmed, and he has an easy way to get hero kills that doubles in function because it shows you where all your opponents are. Sand Wraith – a direct port – is almost certainly going to wind up being one of the best heroes in HoN.

    May I just say what a relief to find someone who genuinely understands what they are
    talking about on the internet. You actually realize how to bring a problem to light and
    make it important. A lot more people must
    check this out and understand this side of your story.

    I can’t believe you are not more popular since you surely possess the gift.

    Aw, this was an extremely nice post. Finding the time and actual effort to generate
    a very good article… but what can I say… I put
    things off a lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.
