While many heroes are still battling it out for an arcana, Earthshaker already has his arcana, less than a month into the TI9 Battle Pass! The arcana, titled ‘Planetfall’, will be available to all TI9 Battle Pass owners who have a Battle Pass level of 365 or higher. From the first looks of it, the arcana looks amazing! It has modifications to three abilities: Enchant Totem (which he does with one hand with the arcana), Aftershock (which shows blue cracks) and Echoslam (which creates a blue, circular effect). Even though Fissure does not have a special effect, the new Immortal Totem that came in Immortal Treasure I of the TI9 Battle Pass fits in perfectly with the new Earthshaker arcana.
As expected, the Earthshaker with the arcana also gets a specialized image on top where all the heroes in a game are shown.
The arcana also has an alternate stlye! The style can be unlocked by getting 500 Echoslam kills or assists.
The arcana is from a world where the Earth has been destroyed and Earthshaker has merged with the fragment of another planet. The lore for the new arcana goes something like this:
“He who was one with the spirit of the earth has now merged with a fragment from another world. Flooded with distant memories of a shattered land, Earthshaker has already encountered one interstellar traveler–defeated at great cost–that had sought to eradicate the reborn power of the world awakening inside him, and he senses more dark forces will soon arrive intent on completing the task. For the first time in his life, he feels longing to look towards the heavens, to somehow understand the apocalyptic end that found his sister earth…and do whatever it takes to avenge her passing.”
Here’s everything that comes with the new Earthsaker arcana…
I guess only thing left to do now is throw more money at Valve!
