Maximum charge: 1
Healing: 6.25 HP/s
Damage inflicted: 30 HP/s
Curveball – 250 Credits (Q)
Curveball is a flare orb that takes a curved path, explodes shortly after launch, and blinds all players who see it. Accordingly, it is popularly known as the flash or the flash of Phoenix.

Maximum charge: 1
Healing: 12.5 HP/s
Go back – 6 points (X)
