▶️ Royal Champion's Hog Rider Puppet & Haste Vial Equipment

The Royal Champion used to be the odd one out, lacking any Equipment choices while her fellow Heroes were spoiled for options. But fear not! That's all changing now!

Introducing some swanky new gear for our Royal Champion! We've got two exciting additions to her arsenal: the Hog Rider Doll and the Haste Vial.

Hog Rider Doll

  • Unlocked at Blacksmith Level 7
  • Summons a squad of Hog Riders to join the fray alongside you.

Haste Vial

  • Gives a boost to movement and attack speed for a brief period, so you can zip around the battlefield like never before!

Haste Vial - RC Equipment

The Haste Vial could be the Royal Champion's ultimate Hero Equipment! But don't just take our word for it – watch it in action and see for yourself. Once you witness its power, you'll want to upgrade it right away. Our caster, Hooked, also demonstrates various ways to utilize the Haste Vial, so you'll have plenty of ideas for your battles.
