Hollowborn Rewards

New trials await, born from blood and darkness. The Hollowborn Shadowslayer D guards a Vampire and a Lycan cursed with the Shadow Fiend's gift, waiting for you to test your might against them in /hbchallenge.

ShadowSlayer D's Merge Shop:

  • Hollowborn Vampire Knight set
  • Hollowborn Lycan set
  • Hollowborn Vampire Lord
  • Hollowborn ShadowSlayer set

These rewards are permanently available, so if you need to level up to take these evil opponents down, never fear... you've got time!

Hollowdeep update: traditionally, we also update the Hollowdeep map at this time of year. Lae did a lot of the work needed for that, but I delayed the Hollowdeep addition to make sure the team had enough time and focus for each of the sections of the update.

The next Hollowdeep update is planned for March 2024, during our Month of Darkness and Evil. The Hollowborn Paragon set will return to Quibble's Shop + in the Hollowborn Merge Shop next March. After that, it will go permanently rare.
