Paragon Hero Shinbi Revealed; Available February 21
Epic Games revealed the brand new hero Shinbi for Paragon today. In addition to her announcement trailer, they also released an overview trailer that covers her abilities.
The developers provided the following description of her character:
Shinbi (Intellect, Growth) is first and foremost Omeda City’s biggest pop star, known for summoning Spirit Wolves during her shows. However, on the battlefield she is a deceptive melee assassin who uses her wolves to dazzle her enemies and rip them to shreds.
Her first ability, Rushing Beat, causes her to dash forward; she can pass through her enemies and deal damage to them with this. Next, her Line Tempo ability summons a Spirit Wolf which runs in a straight line from where it was summoned, passing through minions and dealing damage. The wolf explodes on contact with an enemy Hero.
Her Circle Rhythm ability summons four Spirit Wolves which circle her for four seconds. These wolves deal damage, but also heal the player with each hit. Finally, her ultimate ability is called All-Kill!. When activated, it has the passive effected of adding 1 Spirit Wolf stack to enemies hit by special abilities. Then, she can summon a pack of Spirit Wolves that attack the closest target with the highest number of Spirit Wolf stacks, no matter where Shinbi or her enemy is on the map.
You can watch both videos below. Shinbi will become available in Paragon on February 21. The game is currently in Open Beta on PC and PS4.
