Version 2.6.30

== New Content == 

  • Added a new Cthulhuphant Alt Avatar: Royal Cthulhuphant
    • In some cultures, the White Elephant is revered as Holy and Royal. This is true within Newerth as well. While Cthuluphant himself is a force of chaos, Royal Cthuluphant takes a more sagely position. Consulting among his three heads to ensure his actions benefit not just himself, but the land as well, this Royal Ctuluphant has allied himself against his brother and joined the Legion forces.
    • Scheduled to be released on 5th December 2012
  • Added a new Master of Arms Alt Avatar: Master of Bows
    • Meet Eagleeye, the Master of Bows. Unlike his brother, Eagleeye does not believe that firearms are the key to the Legion beating the Hellbourne, but instead victory will lie in the hands of the skilled men and beasts and their ability to train themselves to use the tools at hand to defeat the daemonic invasion. With his bows in hand he takes aim at the enemies of the Legion like a true avenging force!
    • Scheduled to be released on 7th December 2012
  • Added a new Tremble Alt Avatar: Iron Tremble
    • Knowing that Tremble had been considered weak and outcast, Dr. Repulsor set out to make things right. Encasing both Tremble and Boris in a Crimson and Golden Shell of Iron, the brooding beast has been unleashed back on Newerth!
    • Scheduled to be released on 5th December 2012
  • Added a new Glacius Alt Avatar: Joven Glacius
    • Joven - the name of the Ice Warlock Glacius before his tragic fall. Meet this not-quite-corrupted vision of the Hellbourne's master of frost in the halls of DreamHack as an exclusive early access avatar for attendees of the event!
    • Scheduled to be released on 7th December 2012
