  • 2* Keeper Zathrian

    If you're like me, you've probably spent an awful lot of time running the new Origins gauntlet. You've maybe gotten a Spirit Champion, maybe an Abelas or two, and probably quite a few Maretharis. Perhaps you're luckier than me and you've snagged a few Fens too. But even after all this, your elves might be feeling a little lonely, a little unfulfilled.

    Fear not, Thedosians! 2* Keeper Zathrian is here to the rescue! He's been a request for several years, with many decrying the injustice of only one rate version of Zathrian present in the game. If only YetAnotherZathrian would make a return to the forums, I'm sure he'd be thrilled...

    Anyway, this guy looks awesome and I'm thrilled too. It's been a hot minute since our last new hero, so there should be plenty to discuss!

    +35% stun resist and bonus damage against Ferelden. I wonder who he's meant to counter?

      I like his passive healing ability, hefty auras for GoM and Fen also, negative stun and stun aura will go well with IA, Fen, Tli

        I have really hoped for a refeature of GOM instead of Marethari. Damn it!

        I think I may pass this week's hero, depending on how his passive works:

        Is it: if an ally is hit, heal all allies?

        Or is it: if an ally is hit, heal that one and only that ally?

        So if my 5 man team gets hit by an enemy aoe, does each ally gets healed x5 or only x1?

          Wow, I'm surprised to see how cool Keeper Zathrian looks! I actually really like this version of him, and the fur is a nice touch too.
          I assume that they are the same thing, but shouldn't the Bonus Damage read for Creatures instead of Beasts?

            I like that he's dual faction, that he gives 35% stun resist and 25/25 health and power to all allies, and that he's part of several groups. Seems to be promising... and the passive heals are a nice touch.

              most elves have a devastating effect, fenharel drains out and stuns, apostasy drains strength and increases strength, inquisitor ameridan curses drains, etc. this new hero only brakes and nothing else should drain force or reducing more resistance

              I think it's good but not enough to complete my elven squad, it's like before the iseyya came out the other hero seemed not well complemented the guards then came out iseyya q turned out better so I think I'll wait for the elf hero sgte

                Tier art is great, I love his final tier. I feel like Zathrian should have a special buff for the new Wild Sylvan though. New leg staff gear is beyond awesome. Passive powergain and crit chance? Wew lad. It'll compete with Bloodline and Dragonhunter Vestments for best mage gear.

                Eh, if only I had the Spirit Champion. Keep grinding Origins, lol.

                  I want the gear more than the hero


                  • #10
                    To those that have everything, I guess this will stratch that itch. I will need to see it in action to see if it's worth my gems


                    • #11
                      I'll be grabbing him just because I have more than enough gems laying around, but... eh... I'm a little underwhelmed with this release. Perhaps the bonus damage vs Ferelden will help level the playing field.

                      We shall see.

                        It sounds like the new guidelines they're using for new heroes will result in most releases being on relatively level playing ground with existing heroes of the same rarity. There won't be a steady stream of new metas coming down the pike.

                          You're probably right there... Though I think my underwhelmedness is stemming more from the fact that he doesn't really seem to bring anything new to the field for Elves. There are already plenty normal round, all attacking elves who slow -- granted most are just a "chance" to slow, but most hit a fair bit harder. Won't help overly against a Ferelden Banner getting a leg up on initiative though.

                          The heal might turn out to be pretty decent, but heals aren't always enough to bring usefulness to a character.

                          Edit: Also, no new release pack this week. Womp womp.

                              Hmmmm, was the New Release Pack only an experiment? Might have to wait a day or two before hunting for the new Keeper.

                              It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                              To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:

                              What happens if I break the rules?
                              At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Sr Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                              Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                              For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                              Posting Suggestions
                              In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                              1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion.
                              Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                              2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section.

                              3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available.

                              4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                              5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum.

                              6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                              7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                              In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:
