Bow before the Abyss!


Abyss Heralds are elite members of the Abyss Order, which are remnants of the lost civilization of Khaenri'ah. They lead lesser Abyss monsters such as Abyss Mages and Hilichurls in their operations, and are far more powerful than the likes of Ruin Guards, being capable of contending with exceptional Vision-wielders.

Abyss Heralds come in elemental variations, but as of current, only its Hydro variant "Wicked Torrents" is known.
