So... welcome back and thanks for stopping by to read my rants and raves about Paragon and those that play Paragon poorly lol.
Anyway, I'm more interested today in exploring the new talents and fun personality of Epic's newest addition to the clan - NARBASH! AHH!
Just in case you missed it or have been stuck under a rock, heres the Narbash reveal article from the Paragon team with a slim description of what he may or may not do!
Here are the bullet points if you haven't heard:
- He's available to play and compete in his Hero Race on August 23rd.
- He appears to be a support character who "bangs the drums all day to rev up and protect his teammates," according to article update on EpicGames.com.
- He's a big, obnoxious Orc (something we haven't seen since WoW basically usurped the Orc franchise rights from Lord of the Rings lol).
- He's a badass drummer... duh... I mean, his name may not give that away completely, but it's not exactly subtle either. His drums include skulls, a nuclear grenade pack,(?) and a nice set of throwable drumsticks that also look somehow poisonous or flammable.
Not much to go on, right? Well, I did get a chance to watch the video a thousand times already, so from what I can tell, he does have a lot of quality support features. He appears to have a super that does a radius of damage, an ability that gives a speed buff to those in battle near him, and probably an AOE grenade or similar ability with drumsticks and a grenade pack on his back. I also noticed that aside from giving a speed buff (blue feet), he also may give an attack buff to teammates as well...
Not bad for a fat, green drummer with a gnarly mohawk I'd say...
Either way, I'm super stoked to take on some enemies with Narbash as my draft pick and as a supporting Hero in battles! Stay tuned for a more comprehensive and accurate review of his character and more in the upcoming weeks!
