It’s no secret that the Primalist is getting a lot of attention in the Eternal Legends Update - a complete Druid mastery overhaul in addition to a new core skill. However, the Primalist is not the only character with an expanding arsenal. Eternal Legends is bringing a new Rogue skill into the game - Umbral Blades. Let’s take a closer look.
Umbral Blades - Skill
Umbral Blades is joining the ranks of quick, spammable, low mana cost Rogue skills, and is aimed at fulfilling the fantasy of masterfully throwing daggers (or swords) at your enemies. It is a 3-step combo ability. First, you throw 2 piercing blades at your enemies, next you throw 4 more, and finally on the 3rd step, you recall all of your blades back into your hands, hitting enemies along the way. Umbral Blades pairs perfectly with the Rogue’s high mobility and proper positioning as the key to success.
Umbral Blades skill is using tech we developed for the Majasa boss battle, where she sends out the blood pools, then turns all these pools into orbs and float back to her. In fact, this sparked the initial idea for this new Rogue skill. We felt that recalling your abilities is something that can be really fun to play with, offers a different playstyle, and rewards correct positioning more than other throwing skills. After extensive testing, we are happy to introduce this skill to our players.
