Gemini – Heroes of Newerth Guide


Gemini HoNGemini is a Hellbourne agility hero introduced in HoN 2.2.5 Patch. Gemini has unique skillset and DPS abilities which allows him to be a hard-hitter carry for a time. His skills are  somewhat similar to Pandaren/Jakrio/Lycan in DotA but it’s still a unique concept by S2Games, check Gemini Guide, spotlight and overview.

Gemini background story:

Gemini HoNWhile fire and ice are typically conflicting elements which negate each other, they are harnessed as one in Gemini. A powerful elemental creature bathed in frost and ember, Gemini confuses foes as contradiction incarnate. Few know – and yet fewer understand – Gemini’s origins, but it has been rumored that he is actually a fusion of two separate entities.
Fire and Ice! Winter is coming!

Gemini Guide:

– Introduction:

Gemini is a Agility Ganker/Semi-Carry that can split into 2 wolves to gank and farm faster. This hero requires a decent amount of Micro, so I highly suggest you bind each wolf (Fire and Ice) to a Key, eg: 1 and 2. The keybind will stay bound every time you ult.


Gemini has high damage output but relatively low mana and HP, so you should be careful in the lane (you can use Twin Fangs to escape like a Blink). Communicate with your lane-mate when you are going to initiate with Twin Fangs and follow up with Twin Breath after the stun breaks. Once you hit 6, you can split and Jungle with one Wolf (usually Fire) while you stay in the lane. This will increase your GPM/XPM. Use the abilities on the Wolf that is in the Jungle while keeping the one in the lane full HP/Mana so that when you re-combined you will have full HP/Mana on Gemini again.

When ganking in the mid-game, you usually want to open up with Twin Fangs, then Twin Breath right away and then Split, followed by using all of your Fire/Ice abilities in quick succession.

Later in the game, your ult is basically only good for 1 on 1 ganking and farming, but not so much teamfights. When you aren’t teamfighting, always be split and farming two places at once to maximize your farm!
