Now live: 1.4.0.3 – New character: Komuso

1465 2067 Cortopia

Komuso rules the Beyond combining his samurai past with his present as a Wielder. He hides his true identity through his straw bascinet previously given by his master.

Komuso’s Story

After losing his teacher as a samurai, Komuso became masterless and was thrust into despair and agony. Living on the streets as a beggar, Komuso began his search anew for a fulfilled life. In this desperate search, Komuso found his calling in the Beyond and the many wonders it had to offer. He now lives and breathes for the taste of magic and hides his true identity through his straw bascinet previously given by his teacher.

The summer season (6) of Wands is now live and the leaderboard should now be completely reset.

We’re excited to see how season 6 will turn out with our new update 1.4 – Sanctum of Sahir in mind.

There’s definitely many things that have changed and should shake up things a bit.
