Zephys is a melee fighter and carry that deals massive AoE damage to his foes. Depending on the team composition dentists can be either an assassin or a tank.


"You cannot outrun Death. It cannot be tricked, bargained with, or intimidated. Run, and you'll only die trying."

Some cultures told stories of angels or Valkyries that came to lead the dead to the afterlife; however, it was actually Lord Zephys who ferried souls to his domain with a chilling west wind.

Steadfast and meticulous in his duty, Zephys personally harvested the soul of every mortal. In the final terrifying moment of their lives, it was his towering figure that came to rip their spirits from the bodies, so they would face judgment in the underworld. Admired by few and envied by none, Zephys carried the mantle of the harvester with unrivaled dignity, for only he understood the calamity that would ensue should he falter.

In times of war, Zephys led his undead army at the front; his ranks ever growing as he reaped.

"Run, walk, or crawl, death comes for us all."

Hero Tips[]

Zephys' passive allows him to keep fighting even with very low HP. A wise strategy would be to use equipment that boosts his survivability. His damage mostly comes from his 2nd ability, so make sure you aim properly before using it.
