Skins[edit | edit source]

  • Epic Thunder Goddess Cassia
    • Backstory: Cassia, deity of thunder and leader of the pantheon, assumes many forms, but most know her as an imposing warrior, clad in spotless bronze and armed with javelins of lightning.
  • Epic Divine Herald Tracer
    • Backstory: The divine fury of this celestial herald descends with blinding speed upon those who displease her, though she is not a vengeful god, preferring to protect the weak as they make their weary way down tortuous roads.

Mounts[edit | edit source]

  • 15.png Pegasus
    • Backstory: In the majority of situations, a horse with wings is a strict upgrade over a traditional horse, though fitting into confined spaces is not one of them.
  • 15.png Cerberus
    • Backstory: This foul-breathed beast guards the realm of the underworld with jaws that have relieved many would-be heroes of their fragile mortal souls.

Development[edit | edit source]

The Myth skin pack came together thanks to a diverse set of influences and several years on the backlog. A concept skin for Uther, called “Uthor” after the Nordic God Thor, was part of the inspiration. But once the art team translated the concept to Cassia with a lightning bolt for a weapon, the full event was finally born.

“We were thinking, wouldn’t it be cool to see Cassia with a Zeus skin? Because her kit is all lightning. And then it started hitting like ‘what if we added this character? Or that character?’” Trevor Jacobs says, punctuating each sentence with a snap of his fingers, reminiscent of a lightning bolt striking earth.

The bolt of inspiration started from Thunder Goddess Cassia electrified the team to create a Hermes-inspired Tracer skin, a Cerberus mount, and a Pegasus mount.[1]
