The Kurzick s and Luxons were bitter enemies, but their greatest champions Saint Viktor and Archemorus united to help slay Shiro the Betrayer at the cost of their own lives. Vindicators call upon the strength of their legendary alliance, channeling both heroes’ skills to devastate their enemies and protect their allies. They use greatswords to deliver massive attacks, and crush foes by leaping straight into battle instead of dodging.

They once stood together to conquer Shiro Tagachi at the Harvest Temple. Revenants of Tyria can now reach through the Mists and channel the power of Archemorous and Saint Viktor zu Heltzer—the great Heroes of Cantha. With the power of an ocean wave, Archemorous brings his Luxon prowess to the battlefield with unmatched might, while Viktor harnesses the elegance of his Kurzick blood to aid your allies. The Legendary Alliance is eager to stand with you in battle, and even more eager to see the shores of Cantha once again.
