Greetings Heroes!

The dragons are soaring over Newerth after their dramatic awakening! Prepare for their coming with the new Dragon patch!

The newest hero, Draconis, is a fearsome dragon, bringing death by fire and brimstone upon his enemies. Invoke his rage, and his scorching flames will attack up to three enemies at once, leaving an aftermath of ashes and carnage upon the battlefield.

Welcome our new alternate avatar for Myrmidon, Shenlong! Hailing from the depths of the ocean, it is the yin to Draconis’s yang, conquering the world with the mastery of fire and water.

To top it all off, the Dragon Courier will be sold at half price from 22 Feb to 24 Feb! Grab it while it’s hot!
