Silhouette — HoN Hero Quick Guide


Silhouette is a ranged Agility ninja hero in Heroes of Newerth.


Death Lotus

Silhouette passively creates 1/2/3/4 blades that orbit around her and deal 60 Magic Damage to enemy units they pass through. Blades can be shot outwards, dealing 100/160/220/280 Magic Damage to enemies they pass through.

Tree Grapple

Target a location to hook and create a chain to the first tree encountered. The chain lasts for 6 seconds or if it stretches to 1800 units. While Silhouette is chained to a tree, she gains 100 Movement Speed and Tree Grapple is replaced by two sub-abilities, Sky Dance and Log Bolas. Sky Dance and Log Bolas deal 50/100/150/200 Physical damage and a 1/1.5/2/2.5 second Stun.  Silhouette hooks onto a tree and pulls herself towards the tree or pulls the tree towards her.

Relentless Salvo

Passively causes attacks to apply Relentless Salvo on the target, which lasts 3 seconds and stacks up to 5 times. Attacks deal 6/9/12/15 bonus Physical Damage for each stack of Relentless Salvo on the target. After activating a skill, Silhouette gains 250/300/350/400 Attack Speed for 2 attacks or 4 seconds if the skill is off cooldown. Does not propagate to illusions.


Activate to disjoint, dispel all states on self, and create a shadow. The shadow is an illusion that lasts for 30 seconds and takes 200% of normal damage and deals 33/66/100% of normal damage. Creates a sub-ability which allows Silhouette to swap locations with the shadow.
