Hilda is a very mobile tank/fighter hero. Well know for the fact that she is quite fast and she is able to regenerate health points quickly when she enters in a bush.
Blessing of Wilderness: Passive
Hilda’s HP regen speed increases when she’s in the bush. Entering the bush will give her a shield that absorbs an amount of damage equal to 10% of her max HP, lasting 5 sec. This effect can only be triggered every 10 sec. When Hilda’s HP drops lower than 30%, she can obtain a great HP regen ability. This effect can only be triggered every 120 sec.
This passive gives a high sustain to Hilda. Whenever your low on health points just jump in a bush to quickly generate a shield. Very useful to ambush or to bait enemies.

Tips and Trick on How to Play Hilda

- Try to get 10 assists/kill as soon as possible as it will boost the damage of your ultimate skill by a lot.
- Try to bait an enemy to fight you in a bush so you can easily continue to regenerate a shield every 10 seconds.
- Use your first ability to chase enemies or to run away from them.
- Always roam though lanes and always remember to refresh your shield generation by using bushes.
- Your ultimate will stun only one enemy but also other nearby enemies will receive 60% of the damage of your ultimate.
Heroes that Hilda counters
- Alucard: Alucard has the same ability to lock unto a enemy and keep jumping on him. In a 1 vs 1 with Alucard you should still bait him to fight in bushes as if he has a high life steal build it will be a tough match up.
- Layla: Layla has no escape abilities. As well she is pretty slow compared to Hilda.
- Freya: Freya is a fighter at early/mid game she is squishy and her damage outpot will be low. But be careful at end game as if she has the right build she will be dangerous for your team.
Heroes that counter Hilda
- Jawhead: Jawhead is a fighter that can stun you and throw you to his team mates. Be careful on not staying too close to him.
- Uranus: Uranus is a tank that has the skill set to decrease your attack power and movement speed. Fighting him on a 1 vs 1 it is not a good idea as the more basic attacks he will receive the more health point he will regenerate.
Heroes that make a perfect combination with Hilda
- Estes: When you are about to throw yourself in battle it would be nice to be healed while slashing your enemies. Although Estes to back you up should run up a good defensive build to stay close to you. Estes could help you in fulfilling better your role as a tank.
- Angela: Angela’s ultimate provides a shield to her selected allied target. Most likely she will choose you, so don’t be scared to stay in the frontline once she casts her ultimate ability on you. Goes in great combo with your passive, oracle and athena’s shield.
