Heroes of Newerth Wiki

Prophets is the first custom map to be released in Heroes of Newerth, with the introduction of Sol's Theatre. The gameplay is based on the Warcraft 3 custom map, Warlocks.


Prophets is a Free-For-All game mode. While players are grouped into teams (due to engine limitations), teams itself are arbitrary to the rules of the game.

Each player controls their own Prophet. Prophets possess no form of auto-attack and must use their array of abilities to damage other Prophets. There are a 14 abilities to choose from, 13 of them being skillshots with varying effects, and only one of them being passive. Each Prophet has 500 Health and 300 Movement Speed.

All players start with 200 gold. You gain 200 gold whenever the round is finished and 100 gold every time you kill another player. Before the start of each round, players can purchase abilities from the shop. Each ability costs 100 gold to learn or level, and each ability can be upgraded up to Level 5. Players can have up to 10 active abilities, including Fireball and excluding Lifesteal.

Each player starts at a random location on the map. The stage itself consists of a large, flat field, and the players are surrounded by a fence. Players that are outside of this fence take 50 Damage per second until it returns inside the fence (or has Deflection active). There are also Obelisks on the map. Obelisks impede movement and can be interacted with certain abilities.

Whenever a Prophet dies, it will drop a random Rune. Players can pick up a Rune by walking up to it or by hitting it with certain skillshot abilities. In addition to whatever effect it may bestow, picking up a Rune refreshes all your cooldowns.

Every time a player wins, the Prophet gains a Level. Levels do nothing except indicate how many wins the player has. Once a player reaches Level 4 (3 wins), the game is over and that player wins the game.
