Hey Paragon People,
 
Wraith has infiltrated Monolith! Gets your hands on the new Hero, his new Lunar Ops skin and the “Just Don’t” emote Tuesday, June 27.
 
Wraith
The sneaky sharpshooter is coming to Agora. Let’s take a look at an overview of his abilities, playstyle, and the new Lunar Ops skin:

Wraith launches with a new store emote, Just Don’t.
 Hero Balance and Card Changes
It’s a bit earlier than our normal balance cadence, but for V.41 we want to make some interim changes sooner rather than later. We focus on Phase, Revenant and Morigesh, as well as a variety of bug fixes and quality of life changes to Kallari, Wukong, and Dekker.
 
But wait, there's more! We are smoothing out cards like Bounty Stalker, Portal Stone and Tainted Magick to function more in line with our other card updates.
 
Loot Crate Update
We’ve got new Polished Novaborn Greystone and Instructor Feng Mao variations coming to Loot Creates in v.41. Check them out here:
