Mythic Heroes Athena Guide

Athena the Goddess of War has purity of mind and an unwavering commitment to her cause and purpose. She will stop at nothing to serve and protect her people.

Athena is a very supportive tank as she can protect the team, heal allies using her shield and give them buffs to resist further. She can act as a walking medic station with shields and sometimes save your carries from impending death with her ultimate. Her utility is found in the protection of her shield and in fights which drag on long enough for her to cast it, to set the vicious circle of shielding and healing up.


Her weapon allows her ultimate to buff allies’ Crit resistance by 20% and recover Health by up to 30% of their loss after it breaks. Her weapon’s stats are biased towards Health and Defense while forsaking Crit and Attack.


Her kit is made of 2 active skills and a passive. Her first active attacks the enemies in front of her for up to 250% damage and recovers up to 12% of her Health per enemy hit. The second active targets the enemy with the highest Attack for up to 160% damage and stuns them for up to 3s; At higher levels it has a 50% chance of hitting another target at the same time. Finally, she has a passive which turns her nearly invincible for up to 2.5s with 8s cooldown, while increasing her Hit Energy recovery by up to 75%. Her ultimate generates shields for each ally absorbing damage for up to 350% of her Attack and recover their Health.


The Goddess of war strategy, Athena, has always been the “perfect daughter” of Zeus. And indeed, it seems that all the positive words in the world can be used to describe her: beautiful, brave, and wise just to name a few. She, unlike her philandering father, has taken a vow of celibacy, promising never to marry or fall in love. This vow allows her clever mind to be unified on any purpose she chooses. And usually, her choice of purpose is to help her allies gain the strategic advantage in battle…

Athena was almost universally adored by the Greeks. She came into the world very mysteriously though. Her mother was the ocean titaness Metis who was the first lover of Zeus and the most beloved daughter of Oceanus, the sea Titan. When Metis was pregnant with Athena, Zeus was embroiled in war with the Titans, and Metis’ clever strategies helped Zeus succeed. However, Cronus was unwilling to go quietly, and cursed the baby inside of Metis’ womb, stating: “Metis’ child, born of this world, will overthrow Zeus’ rule, and all of Greece will be thrown into flames.” Looking worriedly at his lover, Zeus was heartbroken knowing the fate of not only himself but all of Greece. .. Yet, noble Metis sacrificed herself to be sealed inside of Zeus’ body. She had an interesting plan. One day, Zeus had an unrelenting headache, and it was so bad that he begged for his son Hephaestus, the God of Blacksmiths, to swing an axe onto his forehead. From this wound though, Athena sprang out, already wearing armor and carrying a sharpened spear.

Because Athena was born inside of Zeus, and not “of this world,” the curse could not be enacted. Metis had saved the realm, and because of her sacrifice, Zeus especially loved this daughter. However, Athena has always been full of doubts about her own origins, and Zeus has never explained the whole story to her.
