Agandaur has the following abilities :
- Northern Bolt sends a stream of lighting that devastates all in its path
- Overcharge can build up energy and enhance the next attack
- Shockwave is an overcharge of lighting that covers a wide area were not many can escape its path
Ori has the following abilities :
- As It Is Written deals damage over time and marks his enemies, which allows his next ablity attack to be more powerful
