Saurus never thought he’d lose, especially not to one so young. He was outmatched at every move, his opponent was not only faster and stronger, but clearly more skilled. A prodigy. The humiliation of so decisive a defeat weighed heavily on Saurus’ shoulders, his ego shattered, and his courage gone. He opted for exile over ignominy and set sail for far shores.

Rustport is bad for locals and a nightmare for visitors, but the last thing on the former fighter’s mind was self-preservation. A few days after entering the squalid heap of a city, his situation did manage to get worse. Saurus is one of a very rare people in Esperia and certain practitioners of arcane arts will pay a large sum for their blood, believing it to contain magical or alchemical properties. Such it was that the exile found himself in a cage. Not for something he’d done, but for something he had.

The cage sat in a soggy storehouse. The lapping of waves could be heard just outside. It was dark here, but a little light came in weakly through gaps in the boards. He heard another faint noise over the waves. A child, crying. Footsteps approached, though he couldn’t see the one who made them. Then, more clearly, a harsh voice and the creak of another cage’s door opening. There was a sharp crack as if from a whip and two figures stepped into view in the dim light, one large and one small. Saurus could tell from the man’s clothes that he was one of The Whispers, perhaps the most notorious gang of criminals in the city. So that’s who’d taken him. He had awoken here several hours ago feeling strangely groggy in a cage by the water and now he knew who to thank for it.

The child huddled quietly as two more Whispers approached.

“Stealin’ eh? Mighty horrible business to get caught up in. Even worse is that you stole from Old Goff’s bread cart. See, Old Goff pays us protection fees to make sure his business all goes smooth. Some coin for us, protection for Old Goff’s bread. Now, if someone were to do anything to harm that baker or undermine our arrangement, that’s coin out of our pocket. Now you’re gonna whinge on about how you only took one loaf, and that you was hungry an’ all, but if we go easy on you, we’d take a hit on the reputation wouldn’t we? So, what was the price of that loaf? Let’s say… two fingers.”

A knife flashed from the belt of the speaker. Saurus bellowed, horrified by what he was seeing. The sudden roar caught everyone off guard. Until now the volume had matched the subdued atmosphere in the storehouse. The girl retained some of her wits, however. Slipping out of her captor’s grasp, she snatched a ring of keys from his belt and ran full tilt toward Saurus’ cage. The three Whispers had almost caught up to her when the lock turned heavily and the cage door swung open. They stopped, sudden terror etched on their faces. There wasn’t time for them to draw their weapons before Saurus had his teeth and claws in them.

With his foes dispatched, he looked about for the girl. She had disappeared in the commotion. He reflected on their circumstances. She, a child hungry to the point of theft, captured by ruthless criminals, remained defiant throughout the ordeal. He, a renowned fighter, fallen to despair after losing a bout. His spirit had been like hers, before. Perhaps it could be again. She had handled herself well, but if he hadn’t been there to help, she would be short two fingers now. She in turn had saved him. He would need to be vigilant. The Whispers would come back, possibly for both of them. He’d need to find her before them if she was to remain safe.

“Never forget who you are”.

He’s S Tier solely because of his bossing performance. The benefits you get from Elder Tree is too much to just cast away this unit. Without him, you’ll be stuck at Silver or Bronze (depending on your bracket).

After trying out this hero I can say that he is overall a B+/A-. In Wrizz, Twisted Realm, and Soren he does alot of damage despite being a mythic plus. However in pve and pvp he is a mixed bag. Tasi, Arden or any hero with a good interrupt can disrupt him. It is best if you include him in a team with tasi and Eironn. Depending on the enemy team it may be better to swap Lyca for Tasi.

I see him rated as B in the Endgame ratings. Would Tenacity not be very good for PvE content like guild bosses and twisted realm??

I meant wouldn’t Tenacity be good since it buffs team stats with his own?

Still testing him but I would say he is pretty solid, great synergy with Eironn and Lyca. If you have alredy build Seirus, don’t think is worth it to change but if you want to build a Wilder frontline, I would say he is a great option.
