Guide

Your traditional warrior will shield himself against damage as its enemies deal it out. But Zanis is not your typical warrior. His powerful offensive oriented abilities give Zanis an attack that skills up very fast.

Abilities

Passive - Dragon

Zanis receives a 12-point boost to his physical damage with every kill or assists which can be layered on up to 20 times. An eventual 240 points of damage is definitely a weapon of fantastic power and the explosive rate at which damage can be dealt makes it easy for Zanis to rack up kills.

Ability 1 - Blood Wyrm

Zanis triggers his inner dragon blood to remove all debuffs and increase movement speed. He also enhances his next normal attack which deals an additional physical damage to nearby targets and reduces their movement speed. This allows them as to slow down the enemy's movement while in pursuit of enemies so he can finish the fight. Releasing this first ability will also simultaneously dispel any disabling effects on Zanis so he can escape battlefields more easily.

Ability 2 - Tail Sweep

Zannis strikes the ground dealing physical damage to nearby enemies. If any enemy units are hit, Zannis's attack speed will be increased. This is an area of effect ability. The increasing speed effect allows Zannis to pin his enemies down more easily while he attacks to finish them off.

Ultimate - Dragon's Wrath

Zannis strikes the target dealing true damage and knocking enemies into the air briefly. For the next five seconds, he takes 15% less damage and his normal attacks deal an additional true damage. This is Zannis's core attacking ability and no one can stand in Zannis's way when he uses dragons wrath. The powerful damage is dealt allows Zannis to easily overcome his enemies.

To pursue an enemy, Zannis uses his first ability to speed up while in pursuit of a fleeing enemy and his second ability to slow down the enemy while continuing to deal damage. Finally, his third ability finishes the enemy off. While Zannis is in a tight spot he can use his second skill to slow down enemies and his first skill to speed himself up to escape the battlefield. Sometimes Zannis is also able to execute a jump over two other monsters and thereby escape his opponents.

When in a team fight Zannis can lead them to victory by using his first skill to charge into an enemy group, his second skill to deal a lead damage, and his ultimate to also deal a crazy amount of damage. There will be times when Zannis will also be able to use his ultimate to quickly take out an opponent who is low on health.

In summary, Zannis will help his team win by dealing a very surprising amount of damage for them while playing the part of a tank.

Lore

Zanis's greatest achievement was undoubtedly his brave endeavor in saving the valuable life of the imperial successor.

Since then, the people living on the slopes of Chang-Pan took pride in themselves for being in the birthplace of Zanis, the most respected legendary Dragoon respected by all. Even the undefeated Peerless Warlord, Lu Bu, paid his respects to Zanis. "The swing of his spear is like that of a dragon: both furious and graceful. True fear is reflected in the eyes of his enemies when they face the spear in action." His prowess in battles and tactical brilliance could not be denied by any, not even his greatest enemies.

"I'm not a fighter,"

Zanis once whispered. Even the wise Zhuge Liang, nicknamed the Crouching Dragon, noticed Zanis was growing weary of the battles. Zhuge Liang could not let Zanis' potential go to waste, so he continued appointing Zanis tasks and missions, leaving him no time to second-guess himself. Regardless of Zanis' feeling towards combat, they never outweighed his loyalty to the emperor or the love of comrades.

"I may have grown weary of battle, but I'll always tend to my duties and fight whenever I am needed."
