Currently, I’m really looked on Paladins on Nintendo Switch. Almost all of my game time goes to this game, and I’ve already spent more than 200 hours on it. But right now I’m getting a little turned off from the game due to this Shadow Warrior Trials – a set of requirements that you need to complete in order to receive the rare title “Shadow Warrior”.
There are six total requirements and I’ve met three of them already – needing to kill each one of the Champions, playing 50 matches, and healing a total amount of 225,000 in one match. So I’m technically halfway done with the trials, right?
The easiest of my three remaining challenges is probably the requirement of dealing 225,000 damage in one match – it sounds hard but I heard there’s an easy way to do it that involves using Bomb King and destroying shields. The next one is playing as each of the Champions and if I’m not mistaken, I already have enough Gold and Crystals to buy any Champion that I haven’t been able to use since unlocking the trials.
The last trial is the hardest, and I’m already starting to think that I don’t have the skill to do it: get a Penta kill, which is essentially get five kills in really quick succession. The first problem here is that it has to be a kill, so if the Champion I’m fighting gets killed by a teammate, that doesn’t count. The second problem is that there are only five Champions in an opposing team so every single one of them has to be alive and in immediate vicinity of each other for me to even have a chance at getting the Penta. And the third problem is those Champions won’t necessarily be just standing around, letting me kill them. They’ll be fighting back, so not only do I have to kill every single one of them, I have to survive their attacks on me too.
The feat is not impossible; plenty of others have already gotten the achievement. But it requires a lot of skill and especially luck – I’ve gotten three Quadra kills already and have not been able to push to Penta because either one of the five opponents happened to be elsewhere, or because I had died after getting the fourth kill, or because someone else got that supposed fifth kill.
I have less than a month to go to complete these trials. On one hand, the only thing thats up for grabs is just a title – a rare one, yes, but something that won’t affect gameplay. On the other hand, I’m just three challenges away from completion and it’s gonna suck knowing how close I was if I end up falling short. Oh well, we’ll see what happens.
