Merely a month ago, Paladins released a spectacular character, a powerful support named Furia. She was saved from the Abyss and the big massacre in the village of Seris, and came back as an avenging angel that seeks vengeance on her sister, that was sacrificed into the Void.

Furia: Abilities & Talents

This powerful profile of hers doesn’t stand only for the lore, but for her in-game skills as well. Her basic weapon attack, which is a “pirate-blade-shotgun”, deals a good 330 damage every 0.5s in a medium range.Also, healing allies increases her attack speed, but if she doesn’t focus on healing, the ability decays.

Her healing abilities will make her soon the “celebrity” of the game, as she can reach the amount of healing that Seris does, and even in a shorter period of time. Right-click ability is called “Kindle Soul”, which targets an ally near your reticle and cast a heal that heals for 1000 and then 500 over 2s. Also, using the talent “Cherish”, Kindle Soul heals up to 50% additional Health based on your ally’s missing health. Well, that kind of heal was needed in Paladins.

Pyre Strike, is a massive burning beam, that travels a big distance. and even through walls,that travels forward. Enemies caught in its path are stunned for 1s and take an instant 400 Damage along with 20 damage every 0.05s they remain inside the beam. Beam can get more aggressive by picking the talent “Exterminate”, which makes the Pyre Strike to stop moving when it hits the enemy until its duration ends.

And just in case you thought her healing abilities was more than enough already, by using the talent “Solar Blessing”, Pyre Strike stops on and heals allies it passes through for 300 health every 0.05s. Seris should be afraid of her reputation by now!

Mobility of a healer is always an issue, when you have to deal with annoying flanks that try to counter the healer. Furia though, with the “Wings of Wrath” ability, propels herself backwards and fires 3 attacks that seek out enemies, dealing 200 damage each. By picking the talent “Celebrity”, “Wings of Wrath” gain an additional charge. What a counter on flanks, right?

Furia’s ultimate ability won’t let you down, and benefits allies as well. “Inflame“,makes Furia untargetable for 2s. Afterward, allies within 150ft, gain 30% bonus weapon damage and 30% Movement speed for 8 seconds. What is better than a support that buffs damage of his allies?

Loadouts

The following loadouts are made by me personally. Tried all of them multiple times, and i can tell that worked brilliant for me and my playstyle. Still, Furia is a pretty new player so updates on the loadouts, should be more than expected.

Talent: Celebrity
Role: Damage

This loadout is recommended for TDM matches, or in any case with a double-healer build on your team, that you are gonna need to focus on damage a 25% more than usual.

Also helps a lot with annoying flanks, by casting the pyre strike right into their faces, and an instant use double Wings of Wrath. Not recommended for small maps.

  • Ignition (2): A successful Pyre Strike hit reduces the cooldown of Wings of Wrath by 1s (2s).
  • Fire Siphon (4): Successful Wings of Wrath attacks heal you for 50 (200)
  • Burning Oath (3): Healing an ally with Soul Kindle also heals you for 105 (315) health over 3s
  • Righteous Path (3): Increase the dash distance of Wings of Wrath by 10% (30%)
  • Pyre Walker (3): Reduce the Cooldown of Wings of Wrath by 0.5s (1.5s)

Talent: Cherish
Role: Healer

This is my main healing loadout, which i use pretty much in any situation where i need to focus on healing, especially in Siege or on Onslaught with a tank.

Tip: Can be used with the “Celebrity” legendary card as well, if you need to help with some extra damage while you provide your allies crazy amounts of healing.

  • Ignition (2): A successful Pyre Strike hit reduces the cooldown of Wings of Wrath by 1s (2s).
  • Stoke The Fire (3): Successful Wings of Wrath attacks reduce the cooldown of Pyre Strike by 0.5s (1.5s)
  • Light Of Dawn (4): Allies affected by Soul Kindle gain a 100 (400) health shield for 2s
  • Fire Siphon (3): Successful Wings of Wrath attacks heal you for 50 (150)
  • Burning Oath (3): Healing an ally with Soul Kindle also heals you for 105 (315) health over 3s

Talent: Exterminate
Role: Damage

This is a pretty new loadout of mine, and I used it mostly in TDM or Onslaught matches. Small maps are your friend on this, as it makes your Pyre Strike less visible to avoid.

Tip: Can be used with the “Solar Blessing” legendary card as well, if you need to help with some extra damage while you provide your allies lots of healing.

  • Conviction (5): Increase the Stun duration of Pyre Strike by 0.1s (0.5s)
  • Solar Flare (2): Increase the Radius of Pyre Strike by 10% (20%)
  • Burning Oath (2): Healing an ally with Soul Kindle also heals you for 105 (205) health over 3s
  • Devout Dexterity (2): Gain 7% (14%) Reload Speed.
  • Stoke The Fire (4): Successful Wings of Wrath attacks reduce the cooldown of Pyre Strike by 0.5s (2s)

Talent: Solar Blessing
Role: Healer

I really would like to use this loadout a lot, but for some reason, everyone avoids Furia’s Pyre Strike. I used it with my own team though, and when they concentrated on the Pyre Strike, the heals were massive!

Tip: Can be used with the “Exterminate” legendary card as well, to keep your heals up while you are dealing some good damage and amount of stuns.

  • Solar Flare (2): Increase the Radius of Pyre Strike by 10% (20%)
  • Conviction (2):Increase the Stun duration of Pyre Strike by 0.1s (0.2s)
  • Burning Oath (3):Healing an ally with Soul Kindle also heals you for 105 (305) health over 3s
  • Light Of Dawn (4): Allies affected by Soul Kindle gain a 100 (400) health shield for 2s
  • Stoke The Fire (4): Successful Wings of Wrath attacks reduce the cooldown of Pyre Strike by 0.5s (2s)

Talent: All Talents Apply
Role: Healer/Damage

This loadout is my main one,  with the addition of the card that reveals enemies that get hit by the Pyre Strike.

  • Ignition (2): A successful Pyre Strike hit reduces the cooldown of Wings of Wrath by 1s (2s).
  • Hallowed Sight (3): Pyre Strike Reveals affected enemies for 2s (6s).
  • Stoke The Fire (4): Successful Wings of Wrath attacks reduce the cooldown of Pyre Strike by 0.5s (2s)
  • Burning Oath (3): Healing an ally with Soul Kindle also heals you for 105 (315) health over 3s
  • Light Of Dawn (3): Allies affected by Soul Kindle gain a 100 (300) health shield for 2s

Feel free to post you own opinions and recommendations on the loadouts. They are more than welcome!
