The Queen of Pain excels at mobility, area of effect damage, and ambushing enemy heroes. Although she is fairly fragile, her Blink skill allows her to dodge in and out of combat freely, making her deadly on offense and nearly impossible to catch. When ambushing lone heroes, the Queen of Pain often uses Shadow Strike, which slows the target's movement speed and makes it difficult for them to escape. Scream of Pain is an area of effect offensive spell centered on the Queen of Pain. Blink, Shadow Strike, and Scream of Pain make a deadly combination, allowing the Queen of Pain to do a lot of damage quickly to any nearby target. Since she can slow and Blink to catch up to retreating enemies, escaping the Queen of Pain is nearly impossible. Her final spell, Sonic Wave, is a one of the most powerful area of effect spells in the game, and can be used to finish off injured heroes or soften up the enemy team in large battles. The Queen of Pain is a powerful and versatile spellcaster, and due to her high mobility and strong offensive spells she is a favorite of many more experienced players.

Akasha is one of the many souls claimed by the blade, Frostmourne. Raised to serve the Lich King as a Banshee, she desired to become pure substance once more. Driving deep into the forests, she was able to subdue and possess a Succubus minion. Rightly bearing the title, Queen of Pain, she enjoys nothing more than inflicting massive damage on her foes, using both the poisonous strikes of her succubus host and the vicious howls retained from her Banshee nature. Akasha breaks her enemies' eardrums with torturing screams, some so loud they manifest into powerful waves that ripple across the lands, shattering all in their wake.
