Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth’s Harbinger Harvests Destruction In New Character Trailer

 Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth’s Harbinger carries a big blade and a nasty bag of miasma-powered tricks

ATLUS has released a new character class trailer for their upcoming Nintendo 3DS DRPG Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth introducing the scythe-wielding Harbinger.

While the Harbinger’s massive scythe is nothing to sneeze at, this master of destruction also utilizes a mysterious energy called miasma to punish their foes in the game’s deadly dungeons. By tapping into their stock of TP, they can summon powerful miasma armor which offers passive support, as well as debilitate swathes of enemies with status ailment abilities including paralyze, curse, and more. You’ll have to be careful though, as wearing the miasma armor also drains a little bit of HP. The Harbinger is a bit of a technical class to master, but their balance of stat-based abilities and considerable power make them a force to be reckoned with in the right hands.

Check out the  Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth Harbinger trailer below:

Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth will release on October 17, 2017. Launch and pre-order copies of the game will include a 24-page art book, 6-track soundtrack CD featuring music from longtime series composer Yuzo Koshiro, and a special outer box featuring the series’ iconic Yggdrasil tree and a band of adventurers.
