Welcome back to How To. This is a collaboration with @Grim_grinning_Ghost and many other forumers of a guides on how to use a hero properly. This guide will feature the biggest rockstar on the planet, Powerline.
Powerline is a front-line “Control” hero. He is currently featured in shops so he should be fairly easy to unlock.
Laser Light Show
Powerline unleashes a laser light show, dealing damage to the enemy team and blinding them. The damage dealt by this skill increases each time an enemy is blinded. This damage boost resets between waves.
(This skill is strong on its own, but with the additional damage boost from blinds, it’s super devastating. A good idea is to pair them up with Hank and dory, Jafar (Sc), and Goofy (Je), as Powerline will get a big damage boost from them. Remember the damage boost resets between waves.)
Powerline arrives fashionably late to combat with a big entrance, dealing damage to all enemies and blinding them.
(A great starting move. Due to his late arrival, the rest of the team can deal enough damage so that Powerline can finish them off. This is also a great “Laser Light Show” booster too, because this can blind enemies as well.)
Powerline summons clouds of dry ice to complement his dance moves, freezing all enemies the clouds touch.
(A good freeze skill that can freeze the entire team for 10 seconds. Great when pairing him up With freezers like Olaf or Elsa. But Kristoff and Sven are even better because they can extend his freeze.)
Powerline takes less damage from blinded enemies.
(A solid purple that protects him from blinded enemies from dealing damage from devastating skills.)
Powerline and his allies gain skill power for each basic attack Powerline performs per wave. Powerline’s attack and movement speed increases each time an enemy is blinded per wave up to a max.
(A pretty good red skill for Powerline. I don’t have it yet but granting skill power to allies per basic attack, attacking faster per blind, and additional damage to “Electrifying Entrance” seems strong to me.)
Powerline is a very flexible and strong hero who can be fit well into Blind and Freeze teams. His devastating skills can wipe out enemies and leave any survivors blinded by the light. He benefits well from other blinders like Hank and Dory, Jafar, Collette, and even Felix. Do keep in mind that he has a very frail position, so heroes that target the frontline can potentially take out Powerline easier. Saps also prevent Powerline from using “Laser Light Show” easier. Also, Mulan with her Red skill and Li Shang (Kr) can dodge his blinds which makes him lose his damage boost for his skills.
Goofy’s disk slows blinded enemies while also granting skill power to Powerline and his allies. This is a good disk, considering Powerline is built around blinding enemies. Ducky and bunny’s disk while not powerful is still solid. It allows “Electrifying Entrance” to clear all debuffs on allies. It also grants Powerline additional Max HP and energy to allies.
He is an incredible control hero that deals very high damage. I 100% recommend putting him in your team or working for him as he is a very flexible character.
