Faris is a hybrid Ranged and Melee magical damage assassin that brings a large amount of versatility and damage to a team. Faris succeeds in every role in Dawngate, bringing formidable harass and kill potential to the lane or fast clear times and powerful ganks to the jungle. Faris’ primary gameplay revolves around masterful use of his two Basic Attack modes – knowing when to stay in Ranged Mode to poke and harass or when to switch to Melee Mode and go in for the kill is key to playing Faris effectively. Faris’ ultimate is a very powerful nuke, but easily thwarted by a supportive enemy team – be sure to disrupt enemy attempts to save your ultimate target and ensure the kill. Faris, like all Assassins, is very susceptible to enemy CC and knowing when your opponents have used their CC abilities is critical to assassinating squishy targets.

“All living things adapt to their surroundings.”
In the turbulent era that closed the Age of Majesty, Faris was built to protect the children of the powerful from a rising tide of violent religious zealotry. The Spirit of Ruin sought him after centuries alone. In this age, there are still children to protect – by any means necessary.

Matihologist: Would you name yourself, for the record?
Akaid: Akaid Il-Tan-Esh. Former watchman.
Matihologist: Why are you here?
Akaid: I'm dying. I came to donate.
Matihologist: Why did you volunteer?
Akaid: My wife died six years ago. Kirina - our daughter - she and I held her hands when she passed. I still miss her, every day. I'm not afraid of the Spirits. But when I'm gone, what we shared... no one will know it. Not as we did.
Matihologist: You're aware this can't be reversed? Once removed, they're gone. We can't return them.
Akaid: When we began courting, Erishti asked me, "Will we be together forever?" I thought one of us would die before the other. So I told her, "I'm dubious."
Faris: I am awake.
Matihologist: Hello, Faris. Please consult your anamnesis. Can you tell me your earliest memory?
Faris: Waking up, just now. Correction. A woman with long hair, like black silk. Or silver? A little girl with hazel eyes. No - a grown woman? She and I help the woman's hands. I remember... a sensation within. Strong. Warm. I do not know it's name.
Matihologist: You will in time. There's a task I need you to preform.
Faris: Protect the crèche.
Matihologist: Can you tell me why?
Faris: An answer is carved into my thoughts; "Protect the future." My anamnesis counsels a different response.
Faris: I remember the sound of a child crying. May I ask a question?
Faris: The man on the bed. He is...?
Matihologist: Ill. He hasn't long to live.
Faris: He looks lonely.
Matihologist: He just gave up something very important to him.
Faris: May I stay with him until my duties begin?

Access Memory |
Ranged - Sentinel: Faris relives a memory, projecting an image of himself where he's standing and firing 10 volleys in the target direction, dealing up to 120/170/220/270/320 (+70% Power) total magical damage to all enemies in a cone.
Faris dashes to target location, dealing 50/85/120/155/190 (+70%) magical damage and slowing enemies by 25/30/35/40/45% for 2.5 seconds in an area upon arrival. For the next 3 seconds, Faris may recast this ability to return to the initial cast location.
Final Protocol |
Faris begins targeting an enemy Shaper for a salvo of energy shots. Enemy Shapers close to the primary target interfere with targeting, causing them to become targets and be revealed as well.
