Paragon’s new hero Countess is joining the battle on October 25 and just as we guessed yesterday, it’s a vampire that wouldn’t be out of place in games such as the classic Bloodrayne, if you remember it. The Countess is a burst caster and a master at misdirection and unpredictability, making the best of her two blades.
Her abilities include blinking to a nearby enemy, sending a cloud of darkness or spinning her blades around her. You can see her abilities below as well as her reveal video.
Blade Siphon – Countess quickly spins her blades around her, causing damage in a circle around her. Passive: Countess regains a percent of her max health every time she kills an enemy, with bonus health for a Hero kill.
Shadow Slip – Countess targets a nearby enemy and blinks to it, dealing damage and applying a slow. If the target is a minion, it is executed. Reactivate to return to the original position.
Dark Tide – Countess sends out a roiling cloud of darkness in front of her, dealing damage to all enemies in the area of effect.
Feast – Countess jumps to a nearby enemy Hero, forcing them to look at her and stunning them before dealing a massive burst of damage. Countess is locked down for the duration of the attack.
