A new hero called Serath joins the Paragon roster today as the v.26 patch is released on the servers.

    The patch comes with a few bug fixes and thankfully improved loading times. It’s worth checking the card changes too because there are stat changes to be aware of.

    As far as heroes are concerned, there’s a lot of polish fixes and Grux has a few points to check. Still no sign of the rather poor Iggy and Scorch being fixed which is a shame.

    We’ll be taking a closer look at Serath shortly in our regular PC Invasion Plays Paragon series.
