Version 3.2.9

== General == 

- Added new Hero: Klanx
* All rejoice! Klanx is here, the most diabolical villain to ever grace the world of Newerth! No other minds can comprehend his genius, and even heroic eyes can barely gaze upon his rugged visage without collapsing in admiration. Forget Tork the Engineer and his inferior intellect and supposed ingenuity—Klanx is about to swagger onto the battlefield equipped with his latest and greatest weaponry, as well as a full supply of faithful lackeys and goons. Victories are his for the taking, and they should feel lucky to belong to such a stunning force of brilliant destruction.

- Added new Klanx Ultimate Edition Alt Avatar: Doomsday Klanx
* Klanx’s ultimate design, the Doomsday Klanx robot, is finally ready for combat after dozens of tests against defenseless civilians. The only flaw Klanx can see is the Doomsday Klanx isn’t is handsome as he is...but that would be impossible.

* All upgraded boots
- Upgraded Arm Armor:
* Alchemist’s Bones

* Shieldbreaker
- Special Effects:

* Thunderclaw
* Nullfire Blade
* Mock of Brilliance

- Added new Klanx Premium Alt Avatar: Sky Pirate Klanx
* Take to the skies with the dastardly devil known as Sky Pirate Klanx. Equipped with only the best and baddest mechanical contraptions—which he built, of course—this dashing and debonair bandit of the open air is full of enough dirty deeds to make even the most despicable demons cringe in disgust. Twirl ‘stache, get cash.


== New Content == 

- Added new Engineer Ultimate Alt Avatar: Tork the Ultimate Engineer
* Tork the Engineer knows Man is flawed, especially those who put too much faith into their gods and not enough work into their weapons. He is also aware his purely mechanical creations like Steamoth excel at warfare, but lack the human aspects that make a true hero. In his tireless work to create the perfect warrior, he has combined his engineering genius with his compassion and will to win. The result is the Ultimate Engineer, a biomechanical suit that upgrades as necessary to handle any combat situation.

- These are the Ultimate Engineer upgrades and the items that will grant them.

* Power Supply
* Blood Chalice
* Base Boots
* Energizer
* Grave Locket
* Sacrificial Stone
- Augmented Lower Body Armor:
* Steamboots
* Striders
* Post Haste
* Ghost Marchers
* Plated Greaves
- Augmented Upper Body Armor:
* Tablet of Command
* Ring of Sorcery
* Sacrificial Stone
* Null Stone
- Augmented Helmet:
* Shrunken Head
* Helm of the Black Legion
* Shaman's Headdress
* Barrier Idol
- Spinning Radar:
* Codex
* Storm Spirit
* Kuldra's Sheepstick
* Hellflower
- Augmented Beer Keg:
* Portal Key
* Astrolabe
* Spellshards
- Semi-Automatic Grenade Launcher:
* Dawnbringer
* Charged Hammer
* Genjuro
* Nullfire Blade

- Added new Jeraziah Alt Avatar: Omen
* Contemplating the existence of the being to which he has devoted his life, Jeraziah decides that he may not understand everything, but his faith requires doubt, and his belief in Sol is solidified. He is rewarded by the Blind Prophet for never turning his back on the righteous god, and is granted a suit of armor that was worn by the original Blind Disciple knight, Omen: a man of commanding stature who vowed to build from his followers an army that would reclaim Newerth for Man and spread the worship of Sol to all corners of the world.

- Added new Corrupted Disciple Alt Avatar: Edium
* After Circe murdered the Blind Prophet, his Five Disciples scattered across Newerth to spread the word of Sol. Edium, the First Disciple, eschewed worldly ways and turned in reverence to studying the sacred text, the Codex Solaris, and went on to establish the Order of the Chapel. When he died, Sol lost a powerful apostle.
In these dire times, with archaic gods and rampant daemonic forces tearing Man’s faith apart, the Five Disciples have returned with the Blind Prophet to shepherd Sol’s flock to victory. His years in the divine realm have made him a dynamic warrior, with eyes covered by the guiding hands of Sol and hands coursing with the energy of pure devotion to his faith.

- Added new Magmus Alt Avatar: Cryo Magmus
* In the days of the Blind Prophet, the followers of Sol outlawed alchemy as an affront to their faith. The persecution even reached into the far north of the Frost Fields, where a hermitous alchemist was dragged from his workshop and thrown into an icy crevasse. As his frozen tomb closed in, he whispered incantations and doused himself with potions to summon an ice elemental. The ancient creature formed around the alchemist and began the creeping ascent back to the surface. The duo has finally emerged—heartless elemental and furious alchemist—and their sole purpose is to bring vengeance upon all followers of Sol and the Blind Prophet.
