The all-new hero Olaf will soon arrive through The Summoning Portal in time for this weekend’s Sub-Zero Tournament!

Olaf kicked at the dust on the arena floor, remembering better days. He looked up at the seats rising high on either side. Empty now — no screaming crowds. The days of glory in his forest coliseum were gone.

They’d be here any minute. He could smell the smoke from Malum’s siege machines approaching. He sat down in the dirt. This tournament field had been his life’s work. If it was to be destroyed, he’d be right here with it.

As he watched the sun dip behind the trees, he was so engrossed in his own reflections he hardly noticed the sound of shuffling feet behind him. Suddenly his trusty spear dropped at his side.

“You’ll need this captain.” Olaf looked up to see Geroni, his sergeant at arms. “We’re with you… we meet this together.”

Olaf smiled, his heart warmed by the sacrifice. Spear in hand, he slowly rose to his feet. Only then did he see the force assembled with Geroni.

The trainers, the porters, the smiths… even the cooks! Nearly the entire arena staff had turned out to fight. Olaf struggled for words as tears streamed down his cheeks. “My friends… you needn’t die here….”

“We stand as family.” Geroni quickly cut him off. His words were confirmed by cheers from the assembled militia.

Even as they cheered, Malum’s forces arrived.

The melee was as grand as any that had ever been seen within the walls of that great arena. Untrained servants fought as legendary gladiators. Each gave everything, and made the enemy pay dearly.

Olaf pierced one enemy after another with his spear, pausing between each stab to summon fresh vitality for his allies. Hundreds of Malum’s troops fell for each of Olaf’s.

In the end there were too many. The most valiant resistance couldn’t compete with the meat grinder of Malum’s war machine. In the end, Olaf was the last.

Brusied and broken in the middle of the arena, Olaf didn’t give up the fight. Long after there were no allies left to benefit from his healing magic, he battled on.

Finally as the sun set, Olaf fell. Set on by hundreds and laying amidst thousands of fallen enemies, Olaf closed his eyes smiling at the arena he’d built over his lifetime of hard work. He had done all he could, and he’d die happy here.

The smile fell off of Olaf’s face as he emerged from The Summoning Portal.

It would seem that Malum’s war had stolen the end of his story as well.

Green Tournament Champion: Olaf

Olaf is one of the last of the great Forest Wardens. Hailing from the great tree-covered wilderness of the north, this proud, ancient people valued two things above all else: community and combat. Olaf dedicated his life to the glory of battle, constructing the great wilderness fortress of Eventide Arena and ruling as its Champion for decades.

Olaf is the master of the Ability Harmony. Using this technique, he is able to quickly fire a blast from his spear which will strike multiple enemies. Channeling the ancient power of the Wardens, the recoil from his blast sends a wave of healing energy to his allies. Olaf is also able to draw from the residual power in his staff to augment his own natural healing.

Olaf will arrive on Thursday, October 12th in time for the next Tournament event. Are you ready for glorious combat?

Tournament Champions, Attack!

We hope everyone has enjoyed having new Heroes coming out of the Summoning Portal for the past few months, as every new Hero adds layers of potential tactics into every battle in Dragon Strike: Puzzle RPG.

We’re also aware that some players are eager to get back the rotation of older event Heroes — Never fear! After Olaf, we have nine more new Heroes that we’re excited to introduce into battles. After that we’ll pick up right where we left off on the old schedule on Thursday, December 19th.

It’s been incredibly exciting to see all the new strategies develop around the new Heroes. We hope that the future will bring more new and exciting developments, but also want to give everyone a little time to digest all this new meta! Don’t forget, there’s some big Heroes yet to come!

As usual with a new Hero, Olaf 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 Olaf 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 him, Olaf is available all week as a possible bonus summon and will enter the permanent summoning pool.

Olaf could help turn the tides of this week’s Tournament. Don’t miss this shockingly powerful hero!

Coming up next week is a Green Dragon Strike event… What hero will arrive then?
