The Holy Trinity

We have 2 troops from the “Holy Trinity” below… stay tuned for the final one (a Bounty troop) on Friday!

New Invasion Troop: Statue of St. Veritas

St. Veritas is a revered figure in Whitehelm. It is said that he performed 3 miracles in his lifetime.

The first was at the siege of Khaz Dromaan in a dispute over land rights against the Dwarves. It is said that he yelled the name of Gaard with so much force that the doors of Khaz Dromaan crumbled.

The second was defending Whitehelm against the hordes of Khetar, where it is said that he presented his holy symbol in such a forceful and confident manner that he turned 1000 skeleton warriors to dust.

Finally it is said that when the Bishop Sartorius turned traitor against his own people, St. Veritas prayed so hard to learn the truth that Sartorius exploded and a Daemon emerged.

A statue was erected to St. Veritas to commemorate his miracles, and today that statue is often carried at the head of the Whitehelm army, where it will be pointed at an enemy fortification to focus the will of Gaard in the same way Veritas would have done during his lifetime.

Statue of St. Veritas will be available in the Invasion Shop, and will appear in Glory, Gem, Guild, and VIP chests in 3-4 weeks’ time.

New Ultra Rare Troop: War Cleric

The War Clerics are a recently-formed order in Whitehelm, created at the behest of the angel, Mercy. Their task, much like the Inquisitors, is to seek out Daemonic or Khetari influence in their Kingdom and destroy it wherever it arises.

The War Cleric will be available for 300 Glory in the Rewards tab of the Shop, will be in Event Chests this week, and will appear in Glory, Gem, and Guild chests in 3-4 weeks’ time.

New Weapon: Divine Protector

The last act of St. Veritas before he passed away was the construction of this magnificent shining gold shield. It is symbolically given to a general of Whitehelm during a military campaign.

This week it will be available in both the Invasion shop, and in the Soulforge.

There we go :slight_smile:


#3

So I guess praying to gard to smite your enemies really does work.


#4

I better get a Pharos from Invasion shop this week lol.


#5

So according to his lore and given he’s a seige breaker they should change his spell name to Yell Hard :smiley:


#6

Ishbaala will be everywhere :smiley: :sunglasses:


#7

War Cleric = Joan of Arc


#8

That fit with sister superior


#9

The War Cleric looks/is awesome. Good job guys!


#10

Statue might be the most usable Invasion/Raid troop outside of Invason/Raid. A good Blue troop with Stoneskin is slim pickings.


#11

Yay for cool stuff. Liking the art.


#12

Is Gard being retconned to have two A’s now? 0o


#13

This has been happening for a while now. I wonder if the eponymous Avatar is the mistake, and not the other usages of the name.


#14

It’s been Gard pretty much everywhere, in and out of game until this year…


#15

Is it just me or is war cleric a bit rubbish?

If there’s no undead or daemons she doesn’t do much.


#16

This week’s event weapon is actually quite good. Red and yellow gems? Yeah! For each divine in your team? Hell yeah! Infernus, Gard’s Avatar and Ketras will be very happy to consume all these 24 red and yellow gems!

And this weapon starts at half mana thanks to Ishballa.

You’re looking at that the wrong way around. It’s a situational counter. Why would you take him if there weren’t daemons or undead? And if there are, that’s pretty high AoE damage for a cheap UR spell…


#18

I love all of these

More awesome chicks in armor with giant stick swordy things

I am going to buy so many Clerics

Woooo

(also a creepy statue)


#19

According to spoilers Tai-Pan is being released in June but it is in summoning stones

Guys… @Cyrup @Saltypatra

As much as I would like this troop without spending keys, it’s not useful to me in its current state.
