Heroes of Newerth Wiki
Arclight Crown
Certain skilled artisans have been able to cobble together bits of Ancient machinery and forge them into weapons. The terrible Arclight Crown, whose electrical current bestows speed to the wielder and excruciating pain to the victim, are a pinnacle of this technique. Their true potency is demonstrated when the lightning trapped within surges forth and dances from one target to the next, leaving behind sizzling corpses.
