Plarium has released information regarding some new Champions coming to the game with the October Fusion, which begins tomorrow for Maranix, Dark Elves Legendary.

Not only will we be getting Maranix, but we’ll also see the addition of 1 Epic and 1 Rare Champion (meaning the Fusion will require 4 of the Epic, and 16 of the Rare Champion to complete) and 1 brand new Void Legendary Champion.

Let’s take a look.

Fortus

Fortus is a new Void Legendary Champion that is being added to the game alongside this Fusion Event! His kit is quite complicated so our guide is likely to change as we have opportunities to play test but our initial guide can be viewed here.

This attack will always be critical if the target is under a [Fear] or [True Fear] debuff.

Whoa! Fortus looks awesome! Pair him with UDK or miscreated monster…dang. Can he be the fusion instead? lol

Since when do you use MM for fears? And UDK only places it against leggos. I’m feeling like you’re a bit overexited. He does seem better than Maranix at least, but explain to me when UDK or MM places enough fears for him to be useful. Besides, he places fears already and would need a champ like Ma’ Shalled to place fears if you’re going for his passive.

Yeah right after posting I thought that UDK probably wasn’t all that applicable, but I get fears on my team all the time from MM in arena. That probably isn’t his main purpose on those teams but it sure annoys the crap out of me. Ma’Shalled definitely would be a better pairing for him for sure (I forgot about him).

Fortus looks like fun trash. The passive could have been just a revive, why’d they go with “remains at 1%, clears all buffs and debuffs, lowers turn meter and sleeps him”. The A2 is never going to be with fears out, so you’ll need acc. What I’m thinking is that possibly a team of Salad, Mithrala, Nekhret and this guy could be solid in plat, but that’s it. And that’s if his secret skill unlocks, which it only does 87% of the time. I do love the increased chance of fear though. If the A3 doesn’t hit like at least a Rae he won’t be worthy of void leggo in my eyes.

The way his passive works might be a funky way of getting around lydia teams that block revives.

Have you seen a playtest? Every CC, and I, agree that he’s the new Jingwon. Watch Scratch’s video on his channel, and then you’ll se how bad he is. But yes, Lydia won’t block his useless revitalization.

And if you see a Lydia team (not very popular as shes so good in PvE) you just don’t bring a reviver, and instead brings some healing, cc
