Version 3.0.1

== New Content == 

  • Added new Sand Wraith Alt Avatar: Shadow Wraith
    • When a hero cheats Death for too long, Death leaves the job to the Shadow Wraiths, the most ruthless soul repo men in Newerth. You can run, but you'll only die tired.
  • Added new Oogie Alt Avatar: Mardi Gras Oogie
      • Some warriors have a party animal's flair for battle, and Mardi Gras Oogie leads the Legion parade across Newerth, gathering her Carnival masquerade and weapons along the way. And somebody tell Devourer that not every day is Fat Tuesday.
