The Vanguardian is the hero we deserve. Rising up against the forces of shadow she is a stalwart protector of the innocent and a fierce warrior of the light.

Whether you prefer to keep your foes at a distance and pepper them with powerful energy blasts or get up in their grills and unleash fists of fury, the Vanguardian packs a powerful wallop.

  • Touchdown – Gliding supercharges the Vanguardian. This charge is released when landing causing a shockwave that destroys blocks in the open world. In an effort to be a good clubmate this ability doesn’t trigger in Club Worlds.

Ranged Mode
  • Mouse 1: Rapid fire energy orbs are unleashed from the Vanguardian’s hands.
  • Mouse 2: Plasma Blast – Fire a ball of pure energy that explodes on impact and deals AoE damage.
  • 1: Fired Up – A self-buff that increases damage and attack speed.
  • 2: Hero’s Charge – This skill triggers a dash forward and a self-heal. It also swaps the Vanguardian into Melee mode.

Melee Mode
  • Mouse 1: Pummel enemies with powerful punches.
  • Mouse 2: Eyebeam – A high powered blast of energy is fired from the Vanguardian’s eyes doing damage and increasing damage done to the target from any source.
  • 1: Force Flash – An AoE kinetic energy pulse that damages nearby enemies, buffs your movement speed, and increases your damage resistance.
  • 2: Laser Leap – Leap backwards, get a big burst of energy, and swaps back into ranged mode.

She is a physical damage class regardless of whether you prefer melee or ranged combat so you won’t need to swap gear to reach peak power.

We’re thrilled to add a new weapon style for the Vanguardian: fist weapons. These come in many shapes and sizes including brass knuckles, long-bladed knives, or giant foam fingers.

As our first “expert class” the Vanguardian is taller than other Trovians and has a more fluid set of animations whether you’re fighting, gliding, dancing, dashing, or dabbing.

She can be crafted for free using in-game materials at the Resistor Workbench or picked up with a pack available in the Trove Store when Heroes goes live. The Vanguardian cannot be unlocked using a Class Coin.

Special thanks to the incredibly talented @ArtByCelyne for this gorgeous interpretation of Trove's newest hero!

When Trove – Heroes is unleashed upon the world the Vanguardian will rise up to answer the call to action – are you ready?

Each class can be either. I used the female pronouns with the art being male to show that you can pick whatever you prefer. Plus...there may be more art to come (spoilers).

It's not this coming week.

However, I wouldn't be shocked if we had the release date announcement while you're starting spring break.
