The Lion roars in a new balance update


“For Caliban and the Emperor!”

– Lion El’Jonson

After the release of the latest major content drop in the Hidden Dagger expansion, the compiled data showed a number of over-performers, particularly in the new Alpha Legion collection. After taking a look at these case by case, it was time to revisit one of the Legions that has remained mostly untouched since its release. Sharpen your blade and gather your wing, for it is time to take a new look at the dark and terrible Dark Angels. Check out the full list of changes below!
