When you try to bring down your clan’s shaman by spilling a sacred “bowel bowl” filled with steaming guts that is being used to open terrifying windows into “The Other Place,” and you just get sucked through the windows into the Realms where you are doomed to spend eternity battling against cruel Champions in the name of glory… you’re having bad day.
That’s the story of Sorlag, a vicious and prideful reptilian huntress from a post-apocalyptic alien planet. This Sorg flesh-trader stalks her prey in the Arenas armed with her deadly Acid Spit, coating the environment and enemies in a sticky toxic rank. This Active Ability deals direct damage to any Champions that are careless enough to pass through as well as additional poison damage over time as it seeps into their flesh.
Sorlag’s reputation as a hunter awards her two Passive Abilities, helping her nimbly move through matches and protecting her from her own – and other Sorlags’ — vile fluids.
