Savio Montero Acosta
The Ordsman Savio Montero Acosta is determined to test himself against the finest melee combatants the Iron Kingdoms has to offer in his relentless pursuit of martial transcendence. As an unabashed Thamarite and a master swordsman, Acosta regards perfecting his own abilities to be the highest calling. Armed with twin storm glaives, a legacy of his time fighting alongside Cygnar’s Malcontents, this duelist faces down the mightiest of foes. Few combatants can hope to match his prowess—and those are precisely the opponents he seeks most fervently.

Thoughts on Savio Montero Acosta
Savio Montero Acosta in a nutshell
Ultra fast, glass-cannon murder machine. Buff his DEF for maximum effect.
Combos & Synergies
- Bullet Dodger from Magnus the Warlord turns him into the male version of Ashlynn.
- He lacks Partisan, so in Cygnar, he is never friendly faction. He can receive indirect buffs, such as Haley 2 using Telekinesis to drag his target closer or Haley 1 using Temporal Barrier to reduce the enemy's defense.
Drawbacks & Downsides
- He can't survive dedicated shooting without some protection.
Tricks & Tips
- His walk and shoot range (11") is identical to his charge range, and he is far superior in melee combat. The sole reason to ever use his guns would be if the target is unchargeable or Savio isn't allowed to charge for some reason.
Changes from Mk2
- He lost Steady.
- Swift vengeance's movement was cut in half
Originally appeared in an Iron Kingdoms Excursions (a collection of short stories by various authors) story by Larry Correia. He later reappeared in Correia's novels "The Malcontents Book One: Into the Storm" and "The Malcontents Book Two: Into the Wild"
