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

Voltar watched the horizon with narrowed eyes. He could feel the energy building up around the tower. No matter how long he kept vigil in the storm, the anticipation of a strike had never ceased to increase his tension. Another problem to solve.

He no longer knew how long he’d been sitting atop this tower. Months? Years? He’d come to the Storm Lands for answers, and he had no plan to leave until he was satisfied.

After so long, why did his body still feel fear in the face of the lightning? Master Tempus had always told him fear was just a reaction to a lack of understanding. Voltar understood the storm. So why was there still fear?

A huge flash. Voltar held out his hand. From the top of the great tower in the center of the plain, the lightning would obey him. The great streak of blinding fire crashed into his hand with power that almost knocked him backwards, off the great tower and to his oblivion below. He quickly closed his fist on the tempest contained within, then without hesitation he smashed the pure force into his forehead.

The world stopped, his eyes blazed like the sun. In that instant… that flash of light… he finally saw it. The fear wasn’t of an unknown fate, but something deeper. He understood now, and he wished he hadn’t.

There was a secret in the lightning as old as time itself… the knowledge that drove the storm to rage, and now he held that terrible truth too. There was no longer any reason to fear. How could any fear greater than this exist now?

As he stood from his meditation for the first time in countless days, still shaken by his revelation, a blue glow suddenly formed in his burned hand. Not lightning, but something equally old, terrible and powerful. He knew it immediately.

“It would seem my exile has ended” he said gazing at the light flowing from his hand. Without hesitation he stepped through the portal now forming in front of him. The light subsided and was quickly eclipsed by a new bolt of lightning striking an empty tower lying alone in the barren wastes.

Yellow Tournament Champion: Voltar

Voltar seeks knowledge and truth, and has sacrificed much to peer into the secrets of the universe. Tormented by the weight of his own wisdom, Voltar is at peace with his own suffering. He has risen above fear, contempt and resentment — a rock amidst the raging tempest. The storm does not consume him, but instead flows through him with unparalleled power.

Voltar is the master of the Ability Chain Strike. Firing but a fraction of the storm within at opponents, he is able to create an arcing band of energy that will damage all enemies and strike his focal point multiple times. While Voltar has discovered the secret to living alongside the power of the storm, his enemies will not be so fortunate.

Voltar will arrive on Thursday, August 17th in time for the next Tournament event. Can you handle the storm?

Tournament Champions, Attack!

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

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

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