Pakko was surprised to learn that joy cannot always be shared. What is delightful to friends may be frightful to foes.
Pakko, is an extremely fun character to play with, and an attitude to match. He is an easy to use 'playful giant' preferring to fight with his hands while occasionally throwing snowballs, freezing the ground, and rolling into enemies. Keep in mind that Pakko is more of a 'support type' role, and not a full on 'tank' or 'melee' character.
To adopt a more 'support' role one should keep in mind that sticking with your allies is the best way to go. Pakko can handle himself quite well on his own, but mostly relies on his abilities to finish off enemies, and that is dangerous in its own way. Make sure to save at least one of his escape abilities and to watch his stamina bar because if caught without one or the other, it'll be difficult to get out of dangerous enocounters.
Tips and TricksEdit
- Pakko can do pretty well on his own, but he really excels when he fights with an ally or two (or three, or four) at his side. Travel with a damage dealer to help you clean up kills after initiating, or stick close to a support hero to keep you alive in the middle of a big fight.
- [RMB/LT] SNOWBALL TOSS skill gives Pakko the unique ability to initiate a fight from long range. You can use this to your advantage by staying healthy and landing a snowball toss to soften up your enemies before you dive in.
- [E/RB]: FROST PATH skill can combo with [Q/LB] SLIP AND SLIDE skill to get into or out of a fight very quickly. Be careful though, because using all your skills all at once can leave you vulnerable to getting picked off, especially from ranged fire; Pakko is a big target!
- Pakko’s FOCUSA special resource that is accumulated and stored throughout every match, and can be used to unleash a FOCUS ABILITY, or upgrade young creatures to powerful adults.
Focus requires to build up FOCUS CHARGES (maximum 3) before it can be used. They can be accumulated by dealing damage to enemies, healing allies, taking damage, and sometimes after being defeated and sent to the Airship.Focus, BREATH OF FRIGID AIR, can be used in multiple ways. Turning enemies into snowmen means they’re unable to move or use skills for the duration. If you do enough damage to them while they are snowmen, they will take more damage, but will also will be broken out of their snowman form and able to fight back. So think carefully about whether you want to use his focus for offense or defense.
