In keeping with the upcoming holiday Paragon has announced the next hero, Countess. As if the spooky twitch skins weren’t enough the team announced a Vampire burst caster. The new character will be available to play October 25th, and I can’t wait to try her out!
It’s good to see another character that is just meant to dash in, deal damage and get out. Fans were starting to worry that Epic’s team was going to focus on tanks and lane characters for a while. Countess looks like the perfect champion for roaming around and getting kills on the new map.
- Blade Siphon – Quickly spins her blades around her, causing damage in a circle around her. Passive: Countess regains a percent of her max health every time she kills an enemy, with bonus health for a Hero kill.
- Shadow Slip – Target a nearby enemy and blink to it, dealing damage and applying a slow. If the target is a minion, it is executed. Reactivate to return to the original position.
- Dark Tide – Countess sends out a roiling cloud of darkness in front of her, dealing damage to all enemies in the area of effect.
- Feast – Countess jumps to a nearby enemy Hero, forcing them to look at her and stunning them before dealing a massive burst of damage. Countess is locked down for the duration of the attack.
All of her abilities seem like they are focused on doing as much damage as possible in the shortest amount of time and then retreating before your enemy has a chance to react. It should be really fun to see what players can do with her! We hope to have a into video up on our youtube page as soon as she becomes available so keep checking back!
Once again though the real show stopper is the new video the team produced! Check it out here!
