It has been confirmed that Dark Elf hero Malus Darkblade is set to become the game’s first “Legendary Hero”. Stripped from the pages of Dan Abnett’s “Bloodstorm” (great author, check his other works) Malus is a Warhammer icon driven by hatred and tormented by the taint of Chaos.
Both his stats and abilities peg him down as a full-offence hero who can also call upon the power of Tz’arkan the Chaos Daemon to replenish health and increase offence. Unlike similar melee fighters (notably Lucian) Malus doles out area damage instead of picking on single targets.
Expect to see him arrive as part of next week’s update.
