Added new Hero: Riptide
 The new Hellbourne strength hero Riptide is an ancient elemental from the bedrock of what became Caldavar. He has emerged from the primordial deep of the Inner Sea, manifesting the enormous power of the cold, black tides that once covered all of Newerth. Our advice: learn to swim.

Riptide Ability 1: Watery Grave
* Riptide sends out a fierce, concentrated blast of water that damages and silences his enemies
* Target a unit to deal 60, 120, 180, 240 Magic Damage and Silence it for 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3 seconds
* If the target is on water:
* It is Slowed by 50% for 3.5 seconds
* The Silence is increased to 2.5,3,3.5,4 seconds
* The Damage is increased to 80, 160, 240, 320

Riptide Ability 2: Undertow
* Riptide unleashes a massive tidal wave to drench all his foes
* Target a location to unleash a tidal wave that deals 125 Magic Damage to all enemies hit. The wave leaves behind 250 radius puddles that give Riptide his "In my Element" buff
* If Riptide has his Ultimate active then the puddles will also slow Movement Speed by 30% for every enemy inside

Riptide Ability 3: In My Element
* While in water, Riptide gains special bonuses by absorbing the element which gives him life
* Riptide gains the following buffs while on water:
* Attack Speed: 30, 40, 50, 60
* Move Speed: 5, 10, 15, 20%
* Attack Damage: 15, 30, 45, 60
* Invisibility unless he is within 450 radius of an enemy hero
* This buff will linger for 1 second once you are off water

Riptide Ability 4: Perfect Storm
* Riptide calls down a powerful storm from the skies to drown Newerth while his own power increases
* The entire map is covered in water for 30, 50, 70 seconds, allowing Riptide to receive all his "In My Element" buffs
* All puddles now become "Deep Puddles" and anyone who is inside them is slowed by 30%
* All enemies are considered on water and will get the extended Silence and Slow by "Watery Grave"

 Riptide Debut Edition Alt Avatar: Toxin
There are areas of Newerth even the bravest heroes will not enter-vast expanses of wasteland seething with the pollution of the Lost Civilization, tainted by the tortured souls entombed within the virulent sludge. Now this mire has stirred, coalesced into Toxin, a living embodiment of the foul desecration of nature. He has trudged from the black ooze of the wastelands into Caldavar with the desire to taint everything he touches and leave a swath of infected land and water behind.
Riptide Premium Alt Avatar: War Blossom
The Songkran Water Festival is upon us, and we're ready to cool off and celebrate the New Year by showering the map with water, flowers, and talc! War Blossom leads the blessing of Newerth with beautiful blossom armor and a body coursing with clear blue water, and when he steps into the soothing currents of Caldavar his festive nature grows even larger!
