New Dragon Slayer Reveal: Ulixar

The new Hero Ulixar will arrive soon, just in time for this weekend’s Dragon Strike.

The wounded just kept coming. The battle against this new Drak was not going well it would seem.

Ulixar longed to be on the front lines where he felt he could do the most good, but he was chain-bound to the Conclave of the Tides — he must go where ordered. Trapped here instead of with the vanguard… this was just a ramshackle fort for nearby civilians to shelter. They had never planned it to be the battlefield hospital it had become.

Ulixar stooped over a Guardian lying on a cushion of flour sacks in the corner. His assistant was an accomplished healer, but this one would not make it. They couldn’t waste any more medicine. Calling on his own skills, he dulled her pain before moving to the next patient.

Ulixar let out a dry, rasping cough. He heard it echoed all around the room from countless mouths. It wasn’t just burns and wounds these soldiers were returning with. He had seen clean wounds fester in front of his eyes and watched minorly injured knights die of respiratory infection mere hours after arriving.

He’d heard the tales… Elder Blight. What had they awakened in the mountains?

Ulixar walked down the hall to his own bedroom. They’d managed to fit four wounded in his rather modest quarters. One of the generals currently occupied his bed. The man was silent and cold.

Ulixar sat down for a moment… unconcerned with the eerily still man next to him. Another massive coughing fit. They were coming more frequently. His head spun. “So this is how it ends,” he said to himself, fiddling with the chain around his neck.

Just as he thought he may lay down and rest awhile, a faint blue light began to form at his chest. Delicate sparks began to emerge from his chest, pooling in the open air in front of him. As he watched with fascination, the light grew. It gradually engulfed the great chain that had bound his neck for years.

Suddenly, the chain split in two and fell off Ulixar’s neck. He was so dumbfounded, he hadn’t even noticed the portal that had formed in front of him until he held up the pieces of chain to inspect them. “The magic is broken then? I’m… free?”

He dropped the chain where he stood. He could hear birds and feel sunlight coming through the portal. He took one last look at the dark, death and disease around him before eagerly plunging into the mysterious light.

Blue Dragon Slayer Hero: Ulixar

Ulixar is a defensive bulwark, and not just behind tall walls. He is himself a living, breathing fortress capable of bolstering the defenses of allies against nearly any threat.

Ulixar is a master of the Ability Sanctuary. Focusing his will, he layers potent protective wards on all allies, increasing defenses against both attack and Abilities. His protective powers are so great that affected allies also feel a heightened sense of awareness during battle, allowing them to dodge incoming attacks with ease.

Ulixar will arrive on Thursday, August 24th for the next Dragon Strike event. Are you ready?

Dragon Slayers, Attack!

As usual with a new Hero, Ulixar will have a 10x modifier to all Tournament and Dragon Strike damage that will scale down gradually to a 5x modifier for the Legendary version.

The Rare Ulixar will have a 5x modifier for all Tournament and Dragon Strike damage that will scale down gradually to a 2x modifier, where it will eventually remain permanently.

Like other Heroes before, Ulixar is available all week as a possible bonus summon and will enter the permanent summoning pool.

Ulixar will be a great help in this weekend’s Dragon Strike. Don’t miss this new hero!

Coming up next week is a Yellow Tournament… What hero will be unveiled then?
