Magic Legends New Update Adds Pyromancer Class and More

by in Magic: The Gathering Arena | May, 21st 2021

Magic Legends has a new class available in the fire-wielding Pyromancer, and you can unlock it for free for a limited time. This comes with a new content update packed with useful features. It’s nice to see that this character will be free for players to pick up, even if it’s only until May 24 at 10 a.m. PT. New content for the Pyromancer was also put into the lower levels of the battle pass to make it easier for players to start getting spells and cosmetics for them. It’s also important to note they will be available in the subsequent battle passes.

What’s New in the Update?

A powerful new planeswalker comes to the realm with the Pyromancer. Utilizing the power of red mana, it’s a ranged class that lights the battlefield up, dousing it in flames. The primary spell is Fireblast, which blasts fireballs from both of the Pyromancer’s wands. Next up is Incinerate, which creates a burning whirlwind. Anyone hit receives a DOT (damage over time). Alacrity Ablaze is their utility spell and is a dash that creates a trail of fire behind you. This is another way to apply a DOT effect. 

Its ultimate ability is the Finale of Flames. Enemies with a DOT on them explode on death, which creates even more opportunities for big damage. The Magic Legends Pyromancer Spark Power is Living Inferno, and it causes a jet of fire to sprout from your hands. That’s not all that awaits in the update, either. The next part of the story, Act IV: Chasing Answers, comes in the update. The mysterious planeswalker we’ve been chasing is now in Benalia, and Ral Zarek needs aid in dealing with her. Will we finally get answers, or will we chase her yet again into the darkness?

This update also adds environmental and software optimization elements to make the frame rate and make it easier to play on various PCs. A few quality of life features show up in this update. A random queue system is now in place to make parties easier to get set up, and adjustments to the new user experience have been made. This is aimed at faster onboarding into getting into Magic Legends. Other updates also came to deckbuilding, customization, and much more. You can find the full details here.
