“Maybe I won’t put (Aurora) in S-tier. I don’t think this hero is actually that overpowered,” he remarked. “The problem is that the passive cooldown is long, and the damage does not burst enough. It’s more like poke. Semi-Yve maybe, but a short distance.”

Lemon also highlighted the hero’s reliance in team compositions, noting that she can thrive with the right teammates. “Maybe if [played together] with Tigreal, it’s better to catch [enemies] using skill 2,” he added.
