Hi-Rez Studios has released its highly anticipated Season 4: Calamity update for Paladins simultaneously on all supported platforms. This update brings with it Yagorath, the Devourer, a new champion that is not only the Realm’s largest Champion yet, but also the most fearsome.
Yagorath is the first of many new Champions to come in Season 4 of Paladins as the game aims for more frequent updates to keep player engaged with regular new content.
New Champion: Yagorath, the Devourer
Yagorath is what it is to consume – absolutely. Today the towering six-legged worm-like abomination of claws and fangs joins Paladins’ roster, including as a Frontline. Her looks, her lore, her abilities—everything makes her an absolutely unique creature.
“Yagorath is by far our most ambitious Champion yet,” says Game Designer Kevin Readen. “We really want her to feel like a horrific monster, dominating the battlefield with devastating abilities and her intimidating presence, towering over everyone else. Her first-person in-mouth presentation, in particular, helps sell the feeling of being a scary monster. Her abilities highlight moments of power, both playing as Yagorath and against her, that allow players to feel like they have a raid boss in their midst.”
Yagorath is able to switch between two clear-cut stances. With her travel form, she surges around the battlefield at high speeds while leaving acid pools in her wake. With her planted form she roots herself in the ground and fires out piercing quills at enemies as well as caustic acid—possibly to digest them better in the near future.
Her ultimate ability allows her to devour any other Champion that dares comes too close. However, this execution is conditional and her prey does have a chance of escape. With the aid of their heroic teammates, the victim has a chance to destroy Yagorath’s temporary shield before being entirely consumed, and live to fight the Devourer another day
