As a bloody battle between the champions of Teleria and the corrupted servants of Siroth comes to an end, Athel is about to face her greatest challenge yet. An upcoming video will delve into this story, and here is a small taste of things to come:


Ravens circled above the field, moving in a swirling black mass. Their cawing, overwhelming and almost triumphant, rose to a crescendo somewhere overhead as Athel picked her way through the bodies of the slain. 

Attracted by the scent of blood that hung heavy in the air, these vultures did not take kindly to the interloper who dared distract them from their feast. And yet the young warrior pressed on. Past the forest of mangled spears and shattered swords, past the tattered banners that fluttered in the wind. Here and there, the wounded stirred and whimpered in pain.

Athel hesitated, she would have abandoned everything to help those suffering soldiers now. Yet in doing so, she would have forfeited both their lives and her own. Opposite her, a figure stood alone, still as an onyx statue. Clad in a black cloak that almost seemed like it was weaved from the fabric of shadow itself, the stranger waited. Eyes unseen stared deep into Athel’s soul. She could feel it. The aura of sheer malice that radiated from this warrior was almost as palpable as the chilly bite of the evening breeze. One thing was clear beyond any doubt - this was no friend or ally.

Athel approached, drawn to the shadowy silhouette by some unknown force. From there, she could see the eerie crimson light that danced along the blade of the stranger’s spear. Dark magic - Athel realized. Everything about this felt wrong.

“Who are you?” She demanded firmly. “Show yourself!”

There was a moment of silence. Then, a soft, barely audible laugh that made Athel clench her teeth and tighten the grip on her weapon. Instead of an answer, the strange reached up to pull the hood off her face. What was underneath made Athel’s heart skip a beat in horror.

This seems exciting! Are we getting a new faction with new champions?

Looks interesting, but I would really love if there was lore connected to the characters.   I mean some tidbit infomation in the index about the factions, and some about the different characters in the (i) tab would go a long way to flesh out the game.


Now regarding this, flag makes me thing new faction, personally I hope it's something we have to fight against using our own factions (ehh faction wars ehh ehh)...
Because I can.

Introducing new champions, who are nothing more than retextured "dark" versions of existing ones, seems pretty underwhelming to me. In terms of lore (which matters little in this game), I don't like it either. Hopefully, they will only be used as enemy NPCs or it's something else entirely.

the devs are overusing reskins, they e even bother to change the hair or the weapon, only the colour patern, if these are just the same champions with dark colours this would be very bad

I am dreaming that this is an introduction to unlocking the tower on the dungeon map

Sooo we're getting a poorly written story and an 'upcoming video' for the story? Sweet.

I would much rather put their efforts into solving the many issues with the game so that it ran effectively, instead of writing stories and making videos !!

Completely different teams and people deal with these, one does not impact the other at all.

A tv show about stuff like this would be pretty cool. Maybe if we keep spending on obtaining those sweet sweet legendaries they'll be able to make one?

Will that "Face of Darkness" be featured in Fusion by any chance?

No, it will be something different. Fusion will get a separate teaser!

Just the Fusion would be great. No further teasing required.

Too stoked. I can't wait for this update to DROP. Is the "Campfire" going to be in this update?? What about the suspicious tower in the Dungeon section?? And the flag in the art above! It looks like Dwarf flag?? Possibly?? One hint to any of these would be cool

Sorry if I tell you ... but here there is really little seriousness on your part, you had announced news for late May and many have been waiting in hope. but May has passed, do you see the date? say that if you do not correct the bugs there will be no compensation and there will be no news! and we still have to believe your words? and if these bugs are not solved will we not have an update? beautiful very beautiful this!
