ShadowScythe General and Special Bludrutbrawl event!

Fight the team in Bludrutbrawl today at 5pm eastern!

The Class Council will be participating in /bludrutbrawl team pvp fights from 5pm+ eastern Thursday, October 11th on the Artix server. Look out for the new ShadowScythe General class on Class Council members!

Welcome to the ShadowScythe General design notes! First off, this testing version of the class will be available to members 1 week before official release. The skills below will likely be changed by the time the official release happens NEXT Friday. 

How to Get the Class 

You can obtain the test version of the class tomorrow (the 12th) if you're a member by speaking to Gravelyn in birthday /battleontown. The Member preview class will convert to a base class next week when the class is out for everyone!

Starting Friday, October 19th, you can get the class by...

  • Talking to Gravelyn in Battleontown to find the Class for 2,000 ACs or 
  • Collect merge items from the daily quest to create the Class or
  • Farm the boss for a 3% drop to get the merge items to create the class

Important details

  • Legends can earn the merge items 2x faster!
  • Both versions of the Class and gear will be permanently available. 
  • The AC versions of the armor, helms, cape, and weapon will have additional damage boosts.

Class Focus

We built this class with a focus on group PvP. It’s a niche we haven’t really focused on much and we wanted the Paladin-crushing General to be an absolute boss in group PvP. In fact, your Undead Rebirth straight up prevents Paladins (and LightCasters) from getting or giving several of their auras! Outside of PvP we also wanted it to hold its own as a farming class and we gave it some of the best sustain out there.

Description: Recommended Enhancements: Lucky, Hybrid. By the powers of of Noxus, you have been reborn as an Undead General! Paladins, Lightcasters and even High Lords tremble at your dark presence. Gather your undead army and take what is rightfully yours!
