Heroes: Ascended Joshua Brings Along Missing “The Sacred Stones” Crew

We hope you all enjoyed the holiday season! Back to business, the first New Heroes banner of 2022 features Ascended Joshua and Heroes from The Sacred Stones. It’ll be active from 7th January 2022 (UTC).

Note: You can check out the Japanese version of this trailer here.

Besides King Joshua, the featured Heroes include childhood friends Colm and Neimi, plus Rennac who couldn’t escape L’Arachel for long. Our condolences to any Moulder fans.

Additionally, Riev: Blood Beryl, one of Grado’s six generals, will be available from a Grand Hero Battle, starting on 8th January (UTC). He briefly appears near the end of the trailer as a Blue Tome Infantry.
