New Hero Serath Brings Order And Corruption To Paragon In Latest Update


Paragon‘s newest Hero is now available to play for all players on PC and PlayStation 4, developer Epic Games has announced. Dispensing her own unique brand of justice across the battlefield is Serath, a bastion of order who has a darker side nestled deep within her psyche. Billed as a carry-type character, Serath will kick off each match weaker than her companions, requiring support from teammates to reach the late game, where she’ll more than make up for her early shortcomings with a suite of hugely powerful abilities.

Unlike most combatants belonging to the above classification, Serath will attack in melee range, utilizing her mace to bludgeon all that stand in her way into a bloody pulp. “Serath (Order, Corruption) is a carry with a unique twist: she fights in melee range. Utilizing each ability in her kit, she’s able to close distances quickly, and keep enemies in range to unleash fury upon her opponents,” says the description provided on the game’s official website, along with a detailed dissection her entire moveset, which you can see below:

  • Chastise (RMB/R1) – Serath attacks an enemy dealing damage and applying a slow. This attack also cleaves other nearby enemies.
  • Heaven’s Fury (Q/Square) – Serath hovers in place and hits each target in an area with a ghostly slash. Each slash deals damage one target at a time, with a delay between each attack. Serath is immune to damage and crowd control during this ability.
  • Ascend (E/Circle) – Rise into the air and then rapidly dive back down, traveling and dealing damage to a targeted area.
  • Heresy (R/Triangle) – Serath lets her dark side take over and her abilities now apply a burn effect which creates a weakness aura around affected enemies. Enemies who are burning also take additional damage from Serath’s basic attacks.

Paragon is currently in open beta on PC and PlayStation 4 and can be downloaded for free on both platforms. Last year saw Epic roll out the ‘Monolith Update‘ for the massively multiplayer battler, which made drastic changes to many of the game’s fundamental systems. Epic has yet to provide any indication of when Paragon will see a full release, but we imagine the end of the road is in sight.
