Paladins: New Champion has Arrived


Paladins patch OB42 has gone live. This patch included a number of changes outlined here

In that patch we also spoke about a new champion joining the realm. Torvald is that champion, and now that he’s in the game. Below you will find all his cards, his abilities and a short teaser video about the character.

Torvald is an ultra defensive front line champion who does an excellent job countering other front line champions. Torvald is going to be good for people who aren’t especially good at aiming, his LMB auto locks on enemies when close. His main purpose is to siphon shields off enemies and bring them over to yourself. He’s definitely a fun character to play as and looks to be someone who you can craft a really good build around.

P.S His ult, when done well, is absurdly fun to use
