How to Use this Hero

Ignus the Mad can be a very effective and a real damage dealer. To do this, ascending him so he gains more powers is very effective, as Wall of Fire Icon Wall of Fire tends not to hold up as well on it's own at later levels. Increasing his star will also improve him too.

Skill Breakdown (OUTDATED)

In a team, Ignus' duty is to deal a lot of damage over time. His Pyromaniac Icon Pyromaniac passive power lets him gain a big boost for damage to enemies that are burning. As a result, burning enemies with Wall of Fire Icon Wall of Fire or another hero's power followed by Ignus' other abilities or even basic attacks will result in a huge damage buff, thanks to Pyromaniac Icon Pyromaniac and the DEF lowered by Burning. He is also Fire Immune Icon Fire Immune , meaning he takes no damage against all Fire Attacks. This gives him good defense against characters like Torchy token 0 Torchy or Nitpick token 0 Nitpick. At first ascension, he also gains Fire Cruisade allowing him to buff the CRIT and SKL of all Fire team members, making him an effective Fire leader character. 

Wall of Fire Icon Wall of Fire is the bases of using Ignus. The initial casting does fairly little damage, however the burning effect does great damage and lowers the enemies DEF for not just Ignus, but the whole team to start dealing serious damage. Just be careful to pick your fights. Wall of Fire Icon Wall of Fire ONLY works on Melee characters, and an unascended Ignus is easily countered by a ranged team. However, burning your enemies with Wall of Fire Icon Wall of Fire can leave lasting damage even is Ignus is slain, and opens up more damage potential for the whole team. 

Ignus gains Energy Drain Icon Energy Drain (outdated) at first ascension, and the power helps him significantly. The power drains 2 energy from the target and gives it to Ignus, as well as doing high damage. As all of Ignus' powers have a long recharge, Energy Drain can help deal with that. Draining the enemies power is effective too, and if combined with an ally capable of Chilling, it can force a boss or a dangerous PvP opponent, like Tsume token 0 Tsume or Yokozuna token 0 Yokozuna, to use nothing but basic attacks. Its damage is also very powerful, especially if a combination of all three of his powers is made. 

Volcanic Shards Icon Volcanic Shards is a powerful ability for Ignus. It not only deals significant damage, but also gives an ATK buff, giving him more power for the next 2 rounds. Volcanic Shards Icon Volcanic Shards ' short recharge (compared to the rest of his powers) also makes it useful. Ignus can also use a triple power combo, to deal a massive attack to a target. First cast Wall of Fire Icon Wall of Fire , and hopefully over the next 2 rounds your target will burn. Then use Volcanic Shards Icon Volcanic Shards for an ATK buff. Finally, use Energy Drain Icon Energy Drain (outdated) on a Burning target to gain damage buffs from Pyromaniac Icon Pyromaniac , DEF down from Burning and ATK buff from Volcanic Shards Icon Volcanic Shards will result in a devastating and quick recharging (thanks to Energy Drain Icon Energy Drain (outdated) ) attack.

Synergy With Other Heroes

Ignus is quite a weak character, and is quite reliant on the team to support that. As there are currently no characters with a trait like Fire Heart or Fire Guard, the only way to defend him well is with a taunter. Any will work, however Pignius token 0 Pignius Maximus' or The Furnace token 0 The Furnace' passive buffs will make them a very effective taunter for Ignus.

Ignus' 25px ??fire crusade?? also gives him potential as a Fire leader. He is quite effective in all Fire teams as a result of this. Teaming him up with Squinch token 0 Squinch will allow not only Ignus himself but his whole team to benefit from Wall of Fire Icon Wall of Fire Burning but his whole team as they gain Pyromaniac Icon Pyromaniac . Combining with Abigail token 0 Abigail the Brutal will give Ignus the chance to benefit from an ATK buff. As stated before, Pignius token 0 Pignius Maximus' Bondfire buff will benefit Ignus greatly, and they make a solid team too. Nitpick token 0 Nitpick's Spirit of Fire Icon Spirit of Fire will also result in a stronger Fire Team.

Uses in PVP

Ignus makes a very powerful defender, as his Wall of Fire Icon Wall of Fire is effective at damaging many enemies. He will only improve as he ascends, and Volcanic Shards Icon Volcanic Shards and Energy Drain Icon Energy Drain (outdated) will deal effective damage on his enemies at higher levels. Just try to put him with a Taunter. On the attack front, as Nature teams are a common sight in PvP, Ignus has some potential too. Wall of Fire Icon Wall of Fire will be helpful in weaking enemy team DEF, and this can be effective if combined with AOE, such as Black Diamond token 0 Black Diamond's Blade Storm Icon Blade Storm or Rogar token 0 Rogar Stonecrusher's Whirlwind Icon Whirlwind . The damage dealt will also be effective, and Ignus only needs one turn to make a lasting impact against the enemy team in both attack and defense.

Notes and Tips

For a long time Ignus Ignus the Mad tokens were a common reward found in Portal Summon Honor Honor and Portal Summon Gem Heroic Portal Summons. This has been changed with the release of the "Introducing the Aether Shop" update. Collect tokens from dungeons and events to raise Ignus' star rating.

Hero changes: The Pontifex Legendary Team: Ignus' second attack "Energy drain" was permantly empowered and renamed to "Heist".
