"Enslaved by fate, he foresees, and makes it true. With dull eyes, he looks forward to the end of the line, after which the rest is blank."

The Prophet is one of the fifteen Hosts featured in HOURS.

Description

The Prophet is a host based around heavy attacks. He can be unlocked by completing Peacock Peaks. He focuses on heavy singular hits to deal massive damage. His True Name is Doomdestine.

Appearance

The Prophet has a blue color scheme and wields a large light-spear. The spear has a crystal embedded on its head and has a gray handle. The Prophet also appears to be wearing a crown of some kind which resembles a classic Roblox hat known as the Domino Crown.

Playstyle

The Prophet is the fastest tank host. His attacks appear slow, and they have blind spots in front of him, but their massive damage compensates.

DEFAULT ABILITIES

Stab (M1 Combo) is slower than most basic attacks, but deals more damage than others in addition to having a longer range. The combo cycles through 3 slightly different spear lunge animations with the same hitbox.

Heavy Strike (M2) has a very long windup time, but if it hits, it deals extremely high damage, even to bosses. Heavy Strike tends to rely on tempos to land a hit, whether that tempo is used to stop or slow time, accelerate your own time, or get a second chance at attacking. The most highly recommended Tempo for this purpose is Star, as it shares its duration and cooldown with Heavy Strike.

Dash (SHIFT) Works very quickly. It covers a shorter distance than other dash skills, but has 2 charges. It is unaffected by auto-aim.

Regeneration (Q) heals Prophet for (by default) 3 HP every 0.5 seconds until out of charges. (When the skill is activated, all charges will be consumed.) Like most of Prophets obtainable abilities, this ability has a unique cooldown system: Rather than a time-based recovery, a charge is regained every time a Stab deals damage.

OBTAINABLE

Break Off consumes Prophet's charges of Regeneration to create an explosion around himself which stuns enemies. The more charges of Regeneration used, the more damage the explosion deals, and the longer enemies are stunned in the blast.

Flurry quickly stabs 4 times for the same damage of a normal Stab on each hit. Each hit from Flurry counts as dealing damage with Stab to gain charges of Regeneration. This ability has no cooldown; it is recharged by dealing damage with Stab 10 times after being used. If all stabs of Flurry hit a target, this number is effectively reduced to 6, so the attack should be used confidently.

Sky Break Javelin throws a spear of light at enemies. Enemies damaged by the spear are impaled and travel with the spear. After 1 second of air time, or when it hits a wall, the spear will explode for additional damage. This ability has no cooldown; it is recharged by dealing damage with Heavy Strike. Because Heavy Strike is typically rather difficult to land a hit with, this skill should be used before attempting a Heavy Strike if it is available to gain the most possible opportunities to use it; if a Heavy Strike hits while this skill's cooldown is refreshed, a use of this skill is wasted.

Awaken, My Servant summons a Lost Lancer for 24 seconds. It deals moderate damage and has slightly less HP than an average host. This ability has no cooldown; it is recharged by dealing 300 damage.

Follow Up is a perk that can be taken pertaining to Heavy Strike. Each time Heavy Strike deals damage, the next usage of Stab becomes a Whirl instead, a spin attack which can hit twice and deals the damage of a Stab on each hit with a quarter of the damage dealt by the last Heavy Strike as bonus. Both hits from Whirl count as dealing damage with Stab to regain Charges of Regeneration. Because this attack effectively allows Prophet to deal almost all the damage of a Heavy Strike, it should be used immediately after the Heavy Strike while the enemy is still stunned so it cannot miss, as the name of the perk promotes.

Tips

  • When using Heavy Strike, avoid being too close to the enemy, as the hitbox is only on the blade of the spear.
  • The Rush tempo almost completely mitigates the windup time of Heavy Strike.
  • The Star tempo is perfect for Heavy Strike because of its timing: Heavy Strike winds up for 1 second and attacks for 1 second, with a 10 second cooldown that begins when the attack starts, while Star freezes time for enemies for 2 seconds -- the exact amount of time needed to charge and land a heavy strike -- with the exact same cooldown time as Heavy Strike itself when the attack is finished, 8 seconds. This means every usage of Heavy Strike can be done in conjunction with Star to guarantee a hit with each use.
  • Note that when the spear is thrown with the obtainable skill Sky Break Javelin, it becomes a projectile and thus can be reflected back at the Prophet with Bloxxerman's Shield.

Trivia

  • Back when HOURS was in development, Prophet's name was "Spearlight", and his full title was "Fate Bound, Fate Sealed, Fate Denied- Endritch Doomdestine Caeseworth, He Who Awaits at the End of the Line".
  • With the right upgrades, Prophet can easily complete the game without taking any true damage, making him the ideal Host for unlocking Drifter.
  • "Awaken, My Servant" is a reference to JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and the "Awaken, my masters!" line from Wamuu.
  • The Prophet appears as a gladiator card in a Roblox card game named "Blox Cards".
