The black Priors arrived on this port city on the shores that Lake Eitrivatnen to assist the Knights defend versus their enemies.

The map is accessible in Dominion, Elimination, Skirmish, Brawl and Duel.



Developer Comment: The goal of this Shugoki renovations is to permit the Shugoki come initiate combat, and also sustain it right into a mix-up permitting a perhaps successful finisher. Further, Shugoki should be able to sustain pressure even after landing the Finisher (especially if done through Demon’s Embrace).

Uninterruptible Stance:

Shugoki’s distinctive Passive Uninterruptible view no much longer exists.

Instead, many of the Shugoki’s strikes gain the regular Uninterruptible stance property.


Developer Comment: This element of the personality led to extremely passive and defensive play where the Shugoki would certainly wait because that an attack to ignore it and land a guaranteed Guard rest or irradiate Attack. V this change, we hope to encourage attack and financially rewarding the Shugoki with favorable trades using its attacks’ Uninterruptible Stance.


HP lower to 140 (from 160).


Developer Comment: Shugoki no much longer takes much more damage as soon as its Passive Uninterruptible stance is gone (since that no longer has it), yet his Demon’s embrace is currently a much an ext reliable method to cure himself, therefore lowering his max HP feel needed.

Light Attacks:

Light strikes are now 500ms (down indigenous 600ms).

Light attacks now get Uninterruptible Stance beginning at 2


Developer Comment: At 600ms, the Shugoki’s Lights to be too easy to parry, discouraging football player from utilizing them to initiate combat. Uninterruptible Stance have to also aid them end up being very an excellent at trading damage with opponents.

Heavy Attacks:

Can now totally charge the heavy Finishers to make them Unblockable.

Heavy strikes can currently be feinted even after they’ve end up being Unblockable.

Can still press Guard rest to cancel them right into Demon’s adopt like before, yet it is now feasible to cancel Heavies into it also after lock have end up being Unblockable.

Heavy assaults now obtain Uninterruptible Stance during the Strike.

Uncharged Heavy assault Openers Strikes are now 800ms (down from 1100ms).

Uncharged and totally Charged Strikes now all price 12 stamina come perform instead of having actually a base cost of 12 and higher costs depending on the quantity of charge.


Developer Comment: The Shugoki’s Heavies supplied to require substantial commitment with high stamina expenses and little expectation the the mix-up working. Through these changes, us hope to give the Shugoki much more threatening chains and variety in his assault approaches.


Headbutt is no much longer guaranteed after ~ a Light.

Headbutt may now it is in performed after any Light assault Opener, Heavy strike Opener, or zone Attack, whether they HIT, miss out on or BLOCK.

Headbutt deals 50 stamina damage (down indigenous 80), stuns and enables a connect to heavy Finishers.

Headbutt no longer pushes the enemy away.


Developer Comment: The old Headbutt offered to it is in a great disabling move, yet it only succeeded in pausing the fight and putting distance between both players. The new Headbutt have the right to be performed much more often, keeps the adversary close and encourages continuing pressure. The intentionally is that the complying with Heavy attack Finisher creates a dangerous mix-up the Heavy strike Unblockable, or feint right into Guard Break, or soft-feint right into Demon’s Embrace.

Demon’s Embrace:

Demon’s embrace can just be perform by pressing Guard Break throughout a litter OR by cancelling any kind of Heavy strike with security Break.

Has Uninterruptible Stance beginning at 500ms and also hits as early on as 900ms (down indigenous 1200ms) from quick range.

Now constantly heals for 25 (down native 40) and also deals 25 damage (down from 40).

The crucial health one-hit kill version no much longer exists.

Completely now refills stamina ~ above a successful hit.

The bind on a successful hit have the right to now be interrupted by friendly and enemy attacks.

Demon’s take on will no longer interrupt opponents throughout their Revenge Activation.


Developer Comment: Demon’s adopt has constantly been one iconic move for the Shugoki, but it was really hard to place in a 1v1 situation due to the fact that it was easy to react to and also the guarantee hit after a throw required a wall nearby. By enabling all Heavies come cancel right into it even after they become Unblockable and also making the faster, it have to do a better job in ~ punishing opponents’s mistakes.

We additionally wanted to get rid of the capability for one Shugoki’s Demon adopt to cause a confirmed kill once Shugoki had actually teammates around, so we made the move breakable to interruptions.

Zone Attack:

Zone strike is now 600ms (down indigenous 900ms)

Zone assault now benefit Uninterruptible stance at 400ms.

Zone strike is currently a solitary strike – but this web links to Headbutt and also the heavy Finishers.

Sprint Attack:

Is currently a optimal Stance attack.

Links come Headbutt and also the heavy Finishers.

Damage Resistance as soon as HP is listed below 70 is now 20% (down indigenous 40%)

Damage Resistance once HP is listed below 40 is now 30% (down indigenous 50%)


Developer comments: Hard to kill was a an excellent way to reduce the increased damages taken as soon as the Shugoki’s Passive Uninterruptible Stance was on cooldown, but because it no much longer exists tough to Kill’s worths were way overtuned. By lowering the values by 20%, us are basically offsetting them by the same percentage of extra damage Shugoki used to take as soon as he to be vulnerable.

Fixe an concern that brought about the Shugoki to carry out a 180 level rotation on himself at the start of the fee of the Oni. We resolved this while quiet letting the Shugoki change the edge of the move in a less jarring way.


Developer Comment: The score of this Peacekeeper transforms is to improve the capacity for Peacekeeper to execute enough damages in striking, get kills, and get executions. Prior to Peacekeeper’s damages was lowered in Season 6, she to be very strong – currently that she has beneficial Dagger Cancels, we’re make the efforts to uncover that mid-point where damages is good enough, yet not quite as high as before.

Guard Break:

Guard rest timing now enables 800ms Side hefty Openers to connect.

It is now feasible to execute a Zone assault after a security Break.


Developer Comment: Peacekeeper’s Guard rest wasn’t standardized through the various other heroes, for this reason the only damage-dealing option to perform after the safety Break to be the Stab. V the current changes you have now a full collection of alternatives after a guard Break: Stab, Side heavy Openers and Zone Attack.

solved an issue that sometimes led to the Peacekeeper to do a 360 rotation when switching come Left stance after prevent a hefty Attack.


Developer Comment: The score of this Warlord improvements is to remove the 1v1 strength of the Crashing Charge. We’re not happy v Out that Lock assaults being the defining feature that a personality in 1v1 situations, so here we rather emphasize Warlord’s Locked combat ability by providing him brand-new chain options, and also improving the basic attacks.
