Below you will find the three heroes that can contribute most with the least amount of knowledge. All three are considered to be highly effective, even in high rated games. So, learning them is well worth your time and effort.

Ashka (Damage)

Ashka is the "simple" mage of Battlerite. He deals incredible damage from range, including area of effect damage and damage over time. He has a couple escapes that you will need to use wisely to avoid death, but when he's alive it's easy for him to dish out high damage that enemies can't ignore. If they do, they are toast. His high damage toolkit and mobility allow him to perform extremely well in small engagements, providing opportunity for him to successfully pull of highlight players. In group battles, he needs to be carefully positioned to avoid being focus fired.

His toolkit allows him to jump into battle and disrupt opponents.
