This ability combines with other sources of flame damage over time, such as the Pyro Mage or Fire Starter perk. Scarlett is a lot of fun with the Flame Cannon, and some people may consider her to be their favorite playable character.

    Hina: 20 Minutes Till Dawn

    Hina has 3 HP and it costs 3150 souls to unlock her. Her ability allows her to dash in the direction she is heading, leaving behind a clone that damages nearby foes on a regular basis. Dashing speed is 6 times faster than your current mobility speed. The Shadow Clone does not move and vanishes after a short period of time or when her ability is utilized again. Her speed is what makes her a good choice.

    Lilith: 20 Minutes Till Dawn

    She has 4 HP and it costs 3150 souls to unlock her. Lilith has some of the best Potential Skills, but they can be unlocked only by chance later in the game—so players are bound to have a hard time until then. It is clear by the character design that she is created and designed with darkness, death, and Gothicism in mind. Also, her abilities are quite commendable from army summoning to attacks. No doubt she is a good choice.

    Abby, similar to Lilith, has 4 HP and it costs 3150 souls to unlock her. The most loved and praised character is Abby. Her attack combos have no con at all. When she right-clicks, she fires all of her remaining ammunition in random directions. The Elite improvements simply help to strengthen her, and with the Tome to increase her base ammunition, she may become virtually invincible.
