This week in Vainglory News, we have Scarecrow Baptiste, a bundle of Lyra skins, a new item teaser video, Churnwalker lore, news about the World’s tournament and 5V5 debut, information regarding East Asia’s Vainglory8 tournament, stellar community content, and a milestone for us here at Broken Myth. Read on to see what you’ve missed this past week in Vainglory News!
Scarecrow Baptiste (Epic)
Baptiste receives his first skin in the Epic Scarecrow Baptiste. The spooky skin features a scarecrow styling with some of Baptiste’s abilities being overhauled for a Halloween theme. Here’s a quick look at the model and animation changes for Scarecrow Baptiste, set to release in Update 2.9:
- Straw-stuffed, burlap & twine body with super creepy grin
- Farmer’s scythe
- All-new scarecrow costume
- Bad Mojo vials are now glowing pumpkins
- Fearsome Shades now have scary pumpkin heads!
‘moon’ lyra (Rare) — all three of them!
Lyra is seeing three new Rare skins this coming update, each one reflecting a different social position that she may hold. These come as ‘Moon Goddess’ Lyra, ‘Moon Empress’ Lyra, and ‘Moon Queen’ Lyra to celebrate the Autumn Festival. Each skin comes with a unique color scheme and wardrobe. Check out the link for the full list of model changes for these three skins.
New Item Teaser Video
This past week, SEMC dropped a video teaser for a new item coming to the Fold. The video depicts some sort of necklace surrounded by a blue fire, potentially signifying a crystal item. If you missed last week’s news, another item (Dragon’s Eye) was also teased.

Updated Vainglory Hype Trailer
3…2…1…0…!!! One of the coolest intros for Vainglory is that one which showcases the heroes and their characterizing features in animation form. The problem, though, was that the video hadn’t been updated to include all the newest heroes like Reza and Lyra, among others. Until now, that is, with the new Vainglory animated promo video.
