Hero Spotlight: Yan Luo

JoelJoel Member, Administrator, Moderator, Boss Fight
Welcome the new Hero, Yan Luo! You get the chance to join the dark side along with him!
Brother of Jin Lei, Yan Luo exists between the world of honor and the shadow realm with an ever tortured soul.

Yan Luo and Jin Lei grew as brothers, but their spirits within could not be more different. Where Jin Lei was bright and represented the good in Pandakin, Yan Luo was dark and possessed by thoughts of death and eternal power. Although locked in an endless hostile contest of opposite elements, their connection was deeper than ever.

    @Joel you guys just released Grodar only 21 days ago! WTF!?!?!?! Slow down your roll there boss. Give us like 3 months between heroes so we have time to level them up and play with them in the meta. This is just a ridiculous cash grab marketing scheme and we're getting tired of it!!!

    Fun facts:

    "In Chinese Mythology, Yanluo Wang (閻羅, Wade-Giles: Yen-lo) is a Chinese deity and the ruler of the underworld Diyu. The name Yan Luo is a shortened Chinese transliteration of the Sanskrit term Yama Raja (閻魔羅社). He is also the judge of the underworld and passes judgment on all the dead.

    According to legend, he is often equated with Yama (Buddhism), but actually, Yanluo Wang has his own number of stories and long been worshipped in China. His personification is always male, and his minions include a judge who holds in his hands a brush and a book listing every soul and the allotted death date for every life. Bullhead and Horseface, the fearsome guardians of hell, bring the newly dead, one by one, before Yan Luo for judgement. Men or women with merit will be rewarded good future lives, or even revival in their previous life. Men or women who committed misdeeds will be sentenced to torture and/or miserable future lives. Yanluo is not one particular god. There were said to be cases in which an honest mortal was rewarded the post of Yanluo."
  • Question: Because Yan Luo has, and I quote: “Soulless Scourge.” Shouldn’t that technically also label him as a Legendary “Undead” Honorbound Caster? Because if I remember correctly, Only Undead heroes would have Soulless Scourge.
    Total Zomminionation.

    In-game the trait YIN AND YANG is called EPIC DEFENSE. But fly-out texts show Yin and Yang. Which one is correct?

    Thanks for the portal double feature! :smile:
