Epic announced that Zinx was the next Paragon hero a couple of days ago and today she’s been fully revealed. Zinx is apparently going to be handy in the off-lane and is classed as Durable / Attacker / Controller / Seiger.
Zinx is a product of the same scientist that created Phase and Howitzer and it took 348 attempts to bring this kitty to life. Her skills are as follows along with the trailer.
- Bad Medicine (RMB/R1) – Zinx charges her gun and creates an AoE field of energy on the ground in front of her, can be discharged early to create a smaller field.
- Kitty Claws (Q/Square) – Toggle: Empowers her Pistol allowing it to apply a damage over time effect, which can be stacked.
- Ricochet Stun (E/Circle) – A Medium range projectile which bounces around nearby enemies, stunning them. The stun duration increases for each enemy hit.
- Dirty Healing (R/Triangle) – Passive: Zinx gains bonus mana regen, based on a percentage of her missing mana. Toggle: While activated, she will immediately heal 50% of damage taken, costing mana instead.
Jinx is available to play on 18 July and it’s free to play as always.
