Heroes of Newerth Wiki
Ever since the War of the Ancients, wild Stormspirits have scourged the surface of Newerth. With the right rituals and words of binding, a Stormspirit can be bound as a familiar, bestowing enhanced magical powers, the spirit's own speed, and the ability to call forth the winds against one's foes.
