Hellkins are the newest Mercenaries to be added to the game. Currently only Xaphan commands them. They appear to function the same as Wizards in every way except that they attack very slowly and do not benefit from having an Epic Hero who can provide them with powerful buffs and they share the same talents as Witches. It would appear as though they planned to give Xaphan Wizards and then realized doing so would make the wizard strat that much more powerful than the Sharpshooter strat so they made up a new skin and came up with a new name but reused just about everything else.
Hellkins have an appearance of demonic red gremlins with big hands and sharp claws. When they attack they fling beams of energy at their nearest enemy.
Heroes that leads Hellkins are:
Hellkins have moderate HP and high ATK. They attack at a very slow rate of one attack every 2.5 seconds which is the same as Colossadrakes, Witches, and Executioners. Their range is the same as a typical ranged hero such as Chiron and Wizards and they also move at the same speed.
At level 30 and every 5 levels thereafter Mercenaries are able to upgrade talents. Each mercenary has 2 distinctly different talents to upgrade and the usefulness varies greatly however they are always worth the Souls to upgrade.
