Latiya will join as the 21st hero and a special in-game event will occur to celebrate her arrival
SEOUL, South Korea, Aug. 23, 2022 /CNW/ — Knight-errant and magical master of joust Latiya is now available to play in Nexon’s MMORPG Vindictus, earning her place as the 21st hero in the game. Latiya grew up in a dangerous jungle and became the world’s greatest hunter, yet her desire to become a knight overtook that ambition. With her large lance and mystic chain hook, she hurtles through the battlefield to joust against her adversaries without a need for a horse.
Her exclusive weapon, the lance, embodies her love of knights.
Latiya is not only strong enough to swing lances around with one hand, but she can also summon the magical Kuja chain hook with the other. The Kuja chain hook from her tribe allows her to quickly navigate the environment to both elude and chase down prey. It allows Latiya to walk the path between a merciful defender and a merciless hunter.
Latiya’s armor sets include “Eusi Kuja” and “Stout Heart.” “Eusi Kuja” is the name of her tribe, the Black Claws, and is designed to combine the best techniques of dodging and deflecting damage.
Stout Heart is a set of medieval full plate armor. The solid, interlocking plates with unique black leopard skin had jousting fans cheering for her as the “Panther Knight” whenever they watched her compete.
As a piercing starlight knight, Latiya has special skills to defeat her enemies. Her first skill, “Lion’s Rage” imbues her lance with magic and performs a swing, an upward slash and finally a thrust. Additional inputs after using the skill can alter the attacks that combo out from the skill. “Snake Coil” unleashes the Kuja chain hook to attack nearby prey. This covers a large area and landing a successful hit can restore stamina with Kuja’s Strength.
“Light of Kuja” is a counterattack that can follow certain other moves, this allows Latiya to both dodge attacks and land some of her own at the same time.
Finally, “Panther Pounce” unleashes a flurry of furious strikes, with the Kuja and the lance working in harmony.
Latiya’s Celebratory Package Event is now open until Tuesday, Sept. 20 to welcome Latiya to Vindictus. Items available include “Latiya’s Outfit Set Destiny Box,” “Title: The First Latiya,” and “Unlimited Inner Armor Pass (30 days)” filled with all kinds of outfits for Latiya to wear. Details on these event outfits and stats can be found here.
More information about Latiya’s debut in Vindictus can be found on the official website.
