The Herald skin finally arrives

This season’s ‘secret skin’ (which isn’t exactly a secret) is The Herald, who you might have already encountered as a boss fight at Herald’s Sanctum.

The skin has been locked away behind a countdown, but shortly after the v22.30 update goes live, it will be available for players to unlock by completing a series of quests like in previous seasons.

Chrome Punk Goals

A new set of quests has gone live with the v22.30 update. They’re called the Chrome Punk Goals and they involve leveling up your account, so it could take you quite a while to complete them.

The good news is that your efforts will be rewarded nicely, as there’s a Chrome Punk skin available to unlock alongside the Graveyard Rave loading screen and a Chromeseed back bling.
