Portraits are aesthetic display images used by players to show their achievements. Portraits can be obtained in a number of ways, ranging from leveling specific characters or playing during a certain holidays. Several portraits have become unobtainable as holiday events have passed by. Basic hero portraits are unlocked at level 6 on a per hero basis. Reaching level 9 with a hero unlocks that hero's master portrait. Much of a player's profile can be accessed by clicking on their portrait.
These portraits are given on default, or are still obtainable through paid purchases or promotions.
