The new Hero Xenathra will arrive for this weekend’s Tournament in Dragon Strike: Puzzle RPG!

What had they done!?

Enchanter, monster they had called her… The Witch of the Mountain. Xenathra had heard the whispers of the villagers for decades — fearful muttering was all it had ever been until now though. Today a blaze of torchlight and angry shouting had come to her door.

She quickly readied herself for a confrontation, annoyed by the intrusion. She had been here long before the village! What right did they have to come to her doorstep with violence? They certainly had experienced hardship from her research deep within the heart of the mountain, but this was her forest and had been for centuries.

She first had trouble directing the power years ago. Random wounds and injuries in the village started healing slower… then stopped altogether. Disease had begun to run rampant since. It was all a terrible affair, and she felt awful for her part in it… but they could leave her forest if they wanted. Her work must continue.

Xenathra peeked out through the blinds in her kitchen window. It wasn’t villagers. Her face fell as she saw the symbols engraved on the nearly hundred sets of heavy armor that had surrounded her hut on the side of the mountain.

The Order of the Anvil. She had always known they would come for her eventually. After centuries of hiding, they’d finally tracked her down. She paused for a moment to recall that time, those days long past.

Yes… she knew she deserved the fate they brought. She had done terrible things. Still, it wasn’t all bad back then. She could still hear the fanatical roar of the crowd when she brought down her foes in The Grand Tournament.

The house was already aflame, but Xenathra grinned with defiance. She was outnumbered in this bout, but she would give them the show of a lifetime. The sorceress launched everything she had through the burning walls of her hut, and one by one the knights fell outside.

Laughing maniacally, she hurled bolt after bolt of deadly magic blindly into the flames as more suits of armor on the other side fell lifeless to the ground. In the village and throughout the valley below, her cackles struck terror into all that heard them. Before long, the roof gave way under the stress of the flames… but still Xenathra’s counter-assault continued. The fire grew into an inferno where a hut had been, but her cackling didn’t stop.

Somewhere far away, Xenathra stepped out of the portal. She was still chuckling to herself as she patted out her flaming clothes.

Purple Tournament Champion: Xenethra

Xenathra has been called many things through her long life, but she has always been a killer. She understands more of the full nature of death than most could ever dream of, and she is able to use that to choke the very life energies out of her opponents. Her unique experience with death has granted her unnaturally long life and an uncanny ability to sustain her own lifeforce.

Xenathra is a master of the Ability Astral Wound. Manipulating the life energies within her opponent, she is able to strike a group of nearby enemies for massive damage and interrupt their ability to heal.

Xenathra will arrive on Thursday, August 31st in time for the next Tournament! Are you ready?

Tournament Champions at the Ready!

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

Xenathra will be a great help in this weekend’s Yellow Tournament. Don’t miss out on this new hero!

Coming up next week is a Blue Dragon Strike… What hero will be unveiled then?
