|Active Skills||Blades of Aiur, Bond, Void Tear, Blink|
People pick Aquila because he has talents for pushing quickly. Aquila also has Void Tear, and ability to effectively immobilize a single boss so that other people can kill it.
Aquila has four skills:
- Blade of Aiur: summons a bunch of zealots. This is similar to Nexus Exiles except the zealots follow you.
- Bond: creates a bond between you and another hero. Both of you will get a boost in regeneration, attack speed and damage.
- Void Tear: imprisons the target unit in a void tear, significantly slowing it while increasing its armor by 8.
- Blink: blink skill.
Aquila used to be very popular in Mental speed runs. Having two Aquila and two damage dealers effectively makes all four heroes have increased regeneration, attack speed and damage (using Bond).
Void Tear used to have very long cooldown, so two Aquila allows permanent slowing of bosses, and in the case of Hive Guardians, slowing multiple Hive Guardians.
Two Aquila also means an insane amount of Nexus Exiles to push quickly.
In Hellwalker is designed to prevent people from speed runs, so hero stacking is disabled, so having an Aquila doesn't help much.
