History

During an interview in Episode 15 of the State of Exile podcast, GGG-Developers Carl and Rory mentioned that three more Heralds other than the then-released Herald of Ash and Ice were in the works. The names given were Herald of Thunder (Lightning), Herald of Stone (likely Physical) and Herald of Anarchy (likely Chaos).

Upon release of the next major patch after this interview, which introduced the Herald of Thunder as seen above, GGG stated that the other two Heralds were not ready and were put on an indefinite hold, as they were either not interesting enough or did not fit into the game for another reason.

In Version 3.4.0, more than three years later, two new physical and chaos-themed Herald skills added: Herald of Purity and Herald of Agony.
