Tips to Play

Gwen is ranged attack base Hero, so it is the best to play her on Lane. Plus, with her Buckshot Bonanza, you can easily farm Gwen with a lot of loots since the ability allows her to damage all targets in a cone.

Her second ability Skedaddle allows her to instantly removes negative effects and blocks further effects for a short time, thus gaining her bonus in move speed. This allow her to run away from any stunt especially when you are playing her, most of the enemy heroes will try to kill you first. With Halcyon Chargers, you can dash her as quick as possible to be on the safe land.
