MIHO: THE SWIFT SWORD
Meet Miho, a fleet footed hyper carry with a razor sharp sword! Miho is a master of duels who zips around the battlefield picking off enemies. With careful use of her Keen Eye perk, enemies are Unguarded and all of her damage is amplified for a short period of time enabling her to quickly take them out. Follow the way of the sword with Miho when the update drops!
KEEN EYE (PERK)
Instead of energy, Miho uses Focus for her abilities. Miho’s abilities apply Keen Eye stacks to enemy heroes. Once her stacks are applied, Miho’s next basic attack or Reizan causes them to become Unguarded, stunning and damaging enemies and granting Miho a barrier.
Miho teleports, dealing damage to all enemies that she passes through and around the area that she appears.
Overdrive: This ability is refreshed whenever any enemy becomes Unguarded.
Miho performs a quick, long range slash that deals damage to all enemies in a line. This ability can be recast immediately until she is out of Focus.
NOTE: To cancel Shingetsu , use the red C ability button (shown below).
After a brief channel, Miho fires a crescent wave of energy from her blade that deals damage to every target that it passes through. Tsukuyomi will also destroy enemy projectiles that it passes through and applies Keen Eye stacks to every enemy it hits.
DEATH BLOW (Rare)
Enemies can no longer become Unguarded but the burst of damage is much greater.
Tsukuyomi heals allies it passes through and deals increased damage.
Reizan now can store three charges and deals significantly more damage.
‘POSEIDON’ LANCE (LEGENDARY)
Rising from the watery depths of the deep blue sea, Poseidon Lance makes his way on to The Rise in a tidal wave of glory. The King of the Sea will be at your service and available for purchase at launch!
‘WU XING FOREST’ KESTREL (EPIC)
From the quiet peace of the Greenwood, everyone’s favorite archer emerges with a lush new skin. Wu Xing Forest Kestrel will be available for purchase when the update drops!
‘TWILIGHT’ MIHO (RARE)
She’s fast, fierce and flawless. As the day closes and gives way to night, Twilight Miho comes out to play. Yours for direct purchase at launch, don’t let the sun set on your chance to get this magical Miho skin!

FRIENDS LIST RESET, TAKE TWO
Our 4.4 Friends List database migration hit a little snag along the way, so we’re rolling it out again in Update 4.5. In case you missed the original communication, your Friends List is getting an overhaul! To initiate the refresh process, just update and log in anytime during update 4.5. Any accounts that are not logged in to during this update will lose their Friends List so make sure to log in while 4.5 is active! All of the details on this Friend List refresh and database change can be found in our recent article HERE. Please note that all references to update 4.4 in the article now apply to update 4.5.
