Paladins 2.08 Update Patch Notes



All tremble at the mere mention of his name. He is wrath. He is fury. He is Raum, Rage of the Abyss. Consumed by burning conflict, tempered in the Abyss, his purpose is clear — annihilation. He has fought and triumphed over every entity in those war-scarred plains, shattering every soul that stands against his might. Few remain who are still worthy of his attention, and their conflicts grow stale. Now, he finds himself summoned to the Realm, a fertile ground teeming with new victims whose souls are too well-connected to their bodies.
