The Normal campaign and Challenge mode dungeon tokens are connected. If you got a token from a dungeon in a Normal campaign dungeon, you will not be able to collect tokens from the Challenge mode version of the dungeon (and vice versa) unless you refresh them.

Attacks first. (Heroes sharing the same speed trait go in order of positioning, left to right, as chosen at the beginning of the battle. Fast is the opposing trait of Slow. If there is no Fast and no Slow trait then the hero goes in normal speed order.)
Ranged physical attack for [62.5%] base damage that marks the target (mark increases ranged damage dealt to that enemy), and all allies with ranged basic attacks do a follow-up attack against the target.| Willow Swift can get following passive buffs when teamed up with other Heroes:
All allies heal [25/35/50]% of their maximum health when inflicted with Frozen. Enemy and ally skills inflicting Frozen on allies will trigger this effect. The gained health depends on rank (I-III) of this trait.
Melee physical attack on target enemy, OR heals target friendly construct, OR target ally gains a class-specific buff (Tanks get DEF+, Healers get CRIT+ and SKL+, Casters get +1 ENERGY, all others get ATK+.)
A combination of ascending her and raising her star level will increase the damage output of her attacks, which can ultimately one-shot heroes. Her passive Agile trait allows her to dodge ranged attacks from deadly Heroes like Lady Nimriel.
Willow Swift's primary objective is to deal as much damage as possible in a short period of time. Her Fast passive ability gives her the chance to start first, giving her the advantage of attacking at least once before a retaliation. Her Sniper Shot , which ignores armor, deals a significant amount of damage to anyone that isn't Fire based. It can away strip away an enemy buff like Taunt, which could help your party kill off another enemy with very little life.
Her Evasive Shot deals a lot of damage too, while giving her an immediate benefit of dodging subsequent attacks. Should she survive her first round of attacks in a PvP defense, then her follow up skill Evasive Shot will increase significant her survival rate for subsequent attacks. Of course, this ability is very helpful for Boss fights in Dungeons.
Finally, her Arrow Barrage is an icing on the cake and is mostly used in larger groups of Enemies. It deals relatively little damage compared to her other single-targeted skills. However, it will quickly dispatch a lot of Water based enemies or enemies with very little health.
Synergy With Other Heroes
She works very well with other heroes using area of effect (AOE) attacks. Black Diamond is one example with an AOE that works by reducing the entire enemies' team life, and Willow Swift quickly dispatching the rest of them.
In addition, other heroes with passives affecting Nature Heroes such as Tsume's Spirit of Nature boost to attack, Rocky's Nature's Fury boost to CRIT, or Chief NubNub's Stout Team skill will greatly enhance the strength of an all-Nature team. Adding Tsume will undoubtedly push the damage of Sniper Shot to devastating levels, ensuring that she will one-shot a hero. Using Rocky the Shiitake will guarantee a critical hit from each of her skills. In addition, her own Nature Heart passive will increase the health of other Nature allies, giving heroes like Bovus and other hard hitting warriors an even greater chance in survival.
Pairing her up with another hard hitting Fast hero like Shadowblade will help your team eliminate a hero that is considered dangerous to your team.
Uses in PVP
Willow Swift is a common defender of the game. She not only provides a first turn attack with a Sniper Shot , but she also acts as a common target for the AI to take out almost immediately. When used as a defender, keep in mind that her job is to target one hero and unleash her Sniper Shot . If thinking in terms of exchanging blows within the fight, then her job is successfully completed if she successfully launches off her first attack. Have a reason to add her into your party-pair her up with Shadowblade if your job is to eliminate a specific hero like Yokozuna or Bovus El Doro. If you intend to attack Tsume, then make sure that you can eliminate him before his Soul Shred attack.
