numbers, can be easily killed in sustained combat. Unlike Aisling, who amplifies damage with Into the Blade and crowd-control with Terrify, Tyto uses acrobatic skills such as [RMB/LT] SWOOP to quickly jump into and out of the fray.

As with other high damage, high mobility characters, like Tripp, Tyto needs a team to lean on if he has any chance of survival.

Tips and Tricks

  • Be fast! Tyto is all about moving freely and quick around the battlefield, don't stay in the same spot for too long.
  • Tyto is a borderline-stealth enemy, but you really need to be aware of creatures like Cerberus who can reveal where you are easily, negating a lot of your singular nature.
  • [RMB/LT] SWOOP and [F,LMB/LS+RT,RT] BLUR can be good attacks, but they also work great as escape tools.
  • [Q/LB] BLADE DANCE can stop an enemy in their tracks, so follow up immediately with [LMB/RT] TALON to wipe them out.
  • You can send [E/RB] FANG to distract your enemies while you prepare yourself to unleash a barrage of slashes on them, or use him to prevent a fleeing opponent from regenerating health with his BLEED
