Yin is a hybrid melee carry Hero that uses an awesome looking whip. Below are the abilities she brings to the table:

  • Backlash (RMB/R1) – Yin cracks her whip, dealing damage in an area in front of her. If enemy projectiles are hit by the whip, they will be reflected back towards the enemy.
  • Lash Kick (Q/Square) – Yin swings her whip, pulling herself to a target, and then jumps off of their head dealing damage.
  • Windburn (E/Circle) – Yin reaches with her whip, increasing the range of her basic attack as well as gaining cleave.
  • Quelling Gale (R/Triangle) – Yin surrounds herself in a whirlwind, displacing all enemies within range. For 5 seconds, the whirlwind will slow enemies and enemy projectiles that travel through it.

Paragon is out now in open beta on PlayStation 4 and PC with cross-platform play between the two. Below are both the new trailer for Yin and a year in review for Paragon that includes all the major updates.
