The Tuskarr is a unique initiator that will not only jump on you by himself, but bring his nearby allies along with him. With his long-range initiation skills, his chasing abilities and a finishing move, he can easily bring havoc to frail enemies. Ice Shards is a long-range skillshot nuke that also creates impassable terrain in a circle behind the enemies. If used along with Snowball, this can trap enemies in between impassable terrain and Tuskarr and his allies. With Snowball, Tuskarr and nearby allied heroes can roll into an enemy hero, stunning and damaging everything in their way. This initiation move allows Tuskarr to overcome the enemies' positioning and get right into the backline onto the frail enemies. The Frozen Sigil provides a powerful slowing aura for teamfights and small skirmishes. Last but not least, Walrus Punch makes sure that the enemy initiated upon will not make it out alive. It deals critical damage, which is higher if the enemy's HP is low, disables the enemy and slows them afterwards, drastically reducing their chances to survive.

Hailing from the Borean Tundra, Ymir is one of the wisest Tuskarr warriors. Acquainted with years of warfare experience against raiding Ice Trolls and Nerubian Spiders that beset his village during his younger years, Ymir eagerly volunteered himself into the ranks of the Sentinel to help halt the notorious rise of the Lich King. A specialist in controlling the element of ice, Ymir's prowess lies in surprising enemies with frosty magics. His arsenal not only consists of propelling Snowballs and hurling shards of solidifying ice, but also conjuring massive Snowstorms that greatly impede his enemies' battle efficiency.
