Notes

Amaterasu is a single-target Mage Hero with control skills and high resistance. The damage dealt by her Ultimate increases the more times it is used during a battle. And this hero have great and not so good situations.

To start with, her second (passive) skill, it is interesting, but not so effective. For example, if this sunspot stun will be transferred on Artemis or on a healer (Idun, Cassandra, Nagakanya), other words on some enemy with ranged attacks, it would do nothing. Because this heroes just stand and casts something. And by the way only Dionysus is pretty effective when casts Accuracy reduce. Okay, now about the Ultimate, it deals pretty great damage to a tanky enemy when skill is leveling up. Each ultimate attack this damage will be increased, great for bosses. 

Solar storm is pretty random passive skill. For example, when targeted enemy will not be able to collect energy for ult during 8 sec, the Terrorize will be wasted. Or this one, Coronaloop skill damaging nearby enemies, but if the enemy stands alone, it is not useful effect. The last one is the best, because it is passive and effective. Every 12 seconds you can do attack reflections, great. 

To be effective, Amaterasu should have high level skills. Her weapon gives you bonus damage, and you can use it in single boss fights. Next levels can give you energy restore and bonus attack speed, which is great. About runes and artifacts, it is not convenience to use active skills recharging ones.

Bio

The solar deity Amaterasu was perhaps the most esteemed of the Gods in the Fusou pantheon. Her story began shortly after Izanagi’s infamous journey to Yomi… Izanagi had escaped the underworld but needed to clean himself ritually in the river after. When he did, he washed from his nose Susanoo; from his right eye, he pulled the moon Goddess, Tsukuyomi; and from his left eye, he brought forth the radiant Amaterasu. It would only be shortly after that she would take leadership of the domain of Takamagahara (Plain of High Heaven) to spread her light from up high. She ruled the realm with quiet dignity and the Kami (Gods) lived in peace during her reign. She was a quiet, wise, and noble leader – serving her followers by day and retreating to her loom at night to find her own peace.

However, Amaterasu’s peaceful energy was counterbalanced by her willful brother, Susanoo. His chaotic ways led to him being cast out from Takamagahara by their father, but before he left, he pleaded with his sister to let him stay. When Amaterasu escorted him out in full armor, he
sobbed with immense remorse, and he swore for 9 straight days upon his sword to reform. Eventually, Amaterasu’s heart warmed to her brother, and she allowed him to stay on the heavenly plain…

Unfortunately, it wouldn’t take long for her to regret this decision. Susanoo often became drunk and rode around atop the piebald Heavenly Horse, trampling the sacred rice and silkworm farms around the palace. Amaterasu tried to chasten him discreetly, but Susanoo only responded with rage. One day, he killed the horse and threw it at his sister’s loom while she tried to ignore him. It smashed into the machine and killed one of her attendants. Amaterasu felt incredible guilt and shame for – again – trusting her tumultuous brother. She ran away to the Heavenly Cave, Ama-no-Iwato, and blocked herself inside, plunging the world into darkness.

Immediately, all the Gods sought to coax her back into the world. They tried to persuade her in every way; they danced, sang, and laughed outside in hopes of drawing her out. One day, amongst the laughing and cheering, the Gods announced that a deity more powerful and beautiful than any other had arrived. Amaterasu’s curiosity of who this deity could be was too much for her to handle… She cracked open the cave entrance slightly and began to peek out of the crevice. At this point, the Gods placed a mirror at this spot, and Amaterasu saw her own brilliance. She was pleased by the playful nature of the ploy, and she came out to light up the world once again.

This mirror became enchanted and since that day was known as the “Eight-Fold Divine Mirror of Amaterasu.” It can subdue demons and foresee the future, including her mother being consumed by the Hate Crystal in Yomi. In desperation, Amaterasu sent her maidens throughout the world to search for “the Summoner from another world” to seek their help.
