Welcome to the Cresht Hero Spotlight. Check out the full video for a guide to the Cresht, the Mermidon, including more on his gameplay, abilities, and build.
Tidal Rage (Passive): Cresht gains Rage with normal attacks when Metamorphosis is not active. When morphed, Cresht shakes the earth each time he uses an ability, reducing movement speed of enemies in the area by 50% for 2 seconds and significantly increases his attack damage.
Typhoon: Cresht’s lance swings grant Rage, knock back surrounding heroes and deal physical damage. Under Metamorphosis, Cresht summons a geyser that deals physical damage.
Aquatic Shield: Cresht jumps to the target location, summoning a whirlpool that grants friendly heroes a shield, absorbing up to damage. Cresht also gains Rage. Under Metamorphosis, Cresht jumps to the target location and summons a whirlpool that deals physical damage to enemies within range.
Metamorphosis: Cresht consumes all Rage and morphs into his true form, growing in size and gaining an absorption shield. He then summons a massive tidal wave, pushing enemies aside and stunning the enemies at the end of the wave, also dealing physical damage. Cresht gains movement speed while riding the wave, and loses speed once he leaves it.
Tip: Cresht is great at protecting allies. Use Aquatic Shield to give allies a shield in team fights. He is incredibly powerful after using Metamorphosis as he is granted a massive shield and his damage output increases. After morphing, target the strongest enemies to give your team the best advantage.
“Strength or death!”
Cresht, the Mermidon, frequently talked of the Boiling Sea from which he came from. However, when dealing with Cresht, one would do well to remember that this sea was not called so because of its temperature, but because of the constant chaos beneath its waters, and that he remained at the top of its food chain.
Ancient records didn’t contain much detail regarding Cresht’s origins. The only relevant knowledge that man was able to garner came from a bard’s song: “A monstrosity rising from the sea’s hungry depths; its trident so terrible it brings naught but death.”
In the War of Man and Beast, Cresht fought fearlessly on the front lines, endlessly tormenting the humans. Surprisingly, Cresht didn’t return to the Boiling Sea after the war. Instead, he took it upon himself to pursue higher goals than just devouring the frail and weak.
“A battle between Gods and Demons must include Cresht!”
