Who are the Black Priors?
The Black Priors are big guys who wield a large kite shield and longsword. These dark agents fight alongside the Knights but do not have any code of chivalry. No matter what, the Black Priors will pay the price for victory. They were once Apollyon’s faithful warriors. Now they fight with their leader, Vortiger, reinventing their legacy and bringing chaos to the battlefield. The Black Prior will be immediately playable for all owners of the Year 3 pass on January 31, while all other players will be able to unlock the Black Prior on February 7 for 15,000 Steel.
Year 3, Season 1 will also bring in additional Hero updates to make the roster better. There will be more focus on the Shugoki, Warlord and Peacekeeper. Also a new Dominion map called “Harbor”, will be added for free on January 31. “Harbor” is a port town on the shores of Lake Eitrivatnen where the Black Priors once helped the Knights defend against their enemies. Ruthless strategies helped them win battles with impossible odds. The port still holds immense strategic value for its location and continues to be a highly contested area.
