Pearl Abyss Has Added The Lahn To Shadow Arena In Latest Update

A new update has been added to Shadow Arena this morning, as Pearl Abyss has taken the Lahn character and thrown them into the right. The character is designed to be more of an up-close fighter, not necessarily a brawler, but someone who isn't afraid to get their hands dirty in the middle of a battle with other players. The addition comes with a new update that adds Ancient Weapons in Showdown Mode, a new Cheer feature, changes to the heroes in the game, a few weapon tweaks, and some overall improvements. We have a snippet of the info below, but you cal also read the full notes here.

Lahn at her core isn't a fast-type of Hero. She wields the Crescent Pendulum, a weapon connected to a blade by a long chain, that lets her have an upper hand against closer-ranged Heroes. To briefly describe her inherent skills' characteristics, she can hold foes with her Crescent Pendulum to drag them in or close the gap, and you can hold down RMB to easily use her combo.

Added a Ancient Weapon Showdown mode. 

> You can select "Ancient Weapons Showdown" mode from Custom mode > Game mode.

– In this mode, you will start with Laytenn's Power Core and Puturum's Power Core.

> Using Laytenn's Power Core will summon the Ancient Weapon Laytenn (Cooldown: 3 min)
