Chroma Probabilities and Rarity
Each of the eight Heroes are Legendary chromas, but there is a possibility to summon a ‘Special Edition’, which is an incredibly rare, cosmetic variation of said Hero. Each special edition chroma that applies to each esport Hero is as follows — Warrior, probability = 10% | Elite, probability = 2% | Mythic, probability = 0.66% (with only 1 per Hero in supply)
Introducing the eight Esport Exclusive Guardians
AURORA, the Unseen Culprit — Team Liquid
Armed with bombs of Umbrus, Aurora strikes when the enemy least expects it.
A master of stealth, Aurora aids the Imperials in and out of battle. When she isn’t surprising enemies with her bombs on the battlefield, she’s raiding enemy camps in the dead of night. Aurora knows only those in power get to make the rules, and she works overtime to one day have that power.
ABBAS, the Silent Steward — T1
Born mute, Abbas spent most of his life living on the shore. He was cast aside until his companion, Clea, crashed into his life.
When Abbas found a young Clea on the brink of death, he knew he had to help her. For a full year, Abbas nursed Clea back to health. In return, Clea taught him the art of fighting like her people, and what it’s like to have a friend.
YUSTA, the Scales’ Vengeance — Ninjas in Pyjamas
With revenge in her heart, Yusta vows to uphold the prowess of an empire ruined by the Dread’s corruption.
Yusta’s thoughts remain in the past, remembering how the Dread’s creatures destroyed her home with the Scales. She strives to rid the land of the Dread’s corruption and restore the Reptilisk empire to its former glory. With the power of Solas at her fingertips, Yusta strikes down her enemies with deadly precision.
STRATOS, the Unshackled Tempest — Cloud9
Stratos wears his shackles as a reminder of the life he led, and how he hopes to be different in death.
Stratos served as a guard in a fae prison run by sadistic Edersons. Disgusted by the crimes he witnessed, he attempted to free the fae prisoners. But other guards caught him, slaying him and leaving him to rot. Unburied, his soul manifested as a spectre, and Atla later invited him to join her quest.
AURANT, the Iron Empress — Fnatic
Firm in her beliefs, Aurant uses her mastery of the battlefield to fight Dread’s creatures with a variety of weapons.
Unlike her twin, Teneb, Aurant actually believes in the Imperials’ cause. Instead of brute force, Aurant arms herself with various strategies and weapons to strike down the Dread’s creatures. She forged the armour she and her brother wear, and can often be found experimenting with the creation of new weapons to fight the Dread.
ALBERT, the Dark Mechanism — SK Gaming
Crafted from pure Umbrus, Albert towers over its enemies. The crossbow in its arm strikes with deadly accuracy.
The Keepers built Albert using blueprints found in ancient books, hoping its construction would help them stop the Dread’s corruption. This apparati doesn’t invoke much thought or scheming, but it’s a powerful force of strength. Albert’s crossbow shifts with the gears in its arms, and its crystals hum with the power of Umbrus.
BRONWYN, the Moral Compass — NRG
High up in the Imperial ranks, Bronwyn keeps order amongst the regime with her psychic abilities.
After years of service, Bronwyn finally established herself as a commander in the Imperial ranks. She serves as a strong leader, keeping the Imperials focused and honest; she doesn’t tolerate any wrongdoing. But she comes down much more harshly on her enemies — especially the Dread’s creatures.
JUNO, The Prodigy Strategist — NAVI
Juno is a strategist who knows her worth, and she won’t settle for anything less than respect — even if it means leaving her home behind.
Juno and her best friend, Sol, were the youngest inductees to Hearthfire’s most elite fighting force. However, her youth resulted in her fellow soldiers greatly underestimating her proclivity for battle strategy and tactics. So, she left Brimstone to make a name for herself. She now commands as a respected Arbiter for the Redeemers.

Does being on the Allowlist mean I have a guaranteed mint?
Whilst the Allowlist gives you a better chance of securing the esports NFTs, with access open ahead of the public sale, being on the Allowlist does not guarantee you a mint as supply is limited and could sell out during the Allowlist phase. We suggest that you ensure you’re ready to mint as soon as the sale opens, and act fast once the Allowlist sale is live!
Thank you, and good luck, Guardians!
