Ace, the Pride of Tempra is a participant in the Trials of Strife.

Ace is voiced by Lucas Schuneman.


Ace is a a strong, but cocky hero with ice powers.[1] Hailing from Tempra, he gained his strength and notoriety fighting the wild beasts of the frozen ice mountains. In his hometown, he is a living legend (but nowhere more so than in his own mind). Ace’s cocky demeanor and hard-hitting ice fists have gained him a reputation as “The Pride of Tempra”. Now he fights in the trials, hoping to add more trophies to his mantle.[2]

Gameplay Edit

Ace is a versatile hero with good initiation.[2] While Ace's play-style is geared towards being 'tanky', he is capable of doing solid damage as well depending on build. This allows him to juggle between playing as a tank or a bruiser dependent on the team's needs.
