Salous is a melee, physical damage bruiser that excels in mobility, engages and counter-engages. Salous performs best in the jungle, boasting both good clear speeds and devastating ganks. Focusing on building damage can hone Salous into a powerful but fragile carry-killer, while focusing on defenses can make Salous a formidable frontline wall and engager. Salous synergizes particularly well with other melee Shapers, granting them a powerful Haste bonus immediately after engaging while simultaneously locking up squishy carries for easy kills. Salous’ ability to penetrate an enemy team frontline is remarkable, exceeding almost any other Shaper – knowing when to engage with your team is key to success.


Salous, the Penitent
Age: 42 Place of Birth: Sei Kashari Island Vitality: Control
Allies: None Acquaintances: None Enemies: None
“There is grace in a drop of water, and terror in a grain of sand.”

A member of a holy order of eastern assassin-monks, Salous had grown haunted and nauseated by his many murders. He confessed his sins to the Spirit of Control, which offered him the strength to redeem himself through deeds.


Sailing clouds founder
On emerald mountain reefs
A plum rain descends

The boom and mutter
Of waves on a remote short;
I observe my sins

The grass stirs idly
He wipes the sweat from his brow
Softly my knives keen

If all are brethren
How could my hands not tremble
As breath fled my prey?

As the moon observed
I listened to cats serenade
Instead of her pleas

What blinds my vision?
My hands are tools; it must be
The haze of blossoms

Night winds sigh like lovers
Crickets delay the coming dawn
Yet I do not sleep

The moon sits down and
Watches me pour out excuses
Emptied, she fills me

Stones cast down, broken
Binding an unworthy soul
Reminders of debt

The sea fumes and spits
Yet my heart is steady as
I turn from the wolf

I walk alone, barefoot
Across icy, withered fields
Through the snow, green shoots

Sinking clouds against
The blooming mountainsides, but
The young sun finds me
