Earlier today (May 27, 2021) a Mistborn collaboration was teased via a quote on Twitter with the symbol for Iron from Brandon Sanderson's best-selling novels.
Tonight in Fortnite' Item Shop, Kelsier appeared complete with slew of accessories.
How to Get Mistborn's Kelsier
Kelsier is currently available in the Fortnite Item Shop until May 28, 2021, at 8 p.m. EST.
Players can purchase Kelsier for 1,600 V-Bucks, and he comes with the following:
- Kelsier Skin with two Styles
- Hemalurgic Spikes Back Bling
- Volcanic Glass Daggers Pickaxe
- A New Shardworld? Loading Screen
The skin is also reactive when used with the Volcanic Glass Daggers Pickaxe, with Kelsier storing them in his stealthes when not in use, and taking them out when they are in use.
His second style features a black mask covering the lower half of his face.
Unfortunately, while Kelsier appears to float when selected, he still runs like normal when in use on the Island.
This is how Gia's Crossbite Toothaxes react with her Tusk & Tooth Back Bling.
What About Vin?
Mistborn fans may be wondering where Vin is.
As one of Mistborn's main character's, Vin is the Skin most fans were expecting to show up in the Item Shop when they figured out a Mistborn collaboration was happening.
Brandon Sanderson has confirmed that as part of the contract with Epic Games Vin can show up in the game, but it may take up to six months for that to happen if it happens at all.
Kelsier is a charismatic leader, forming a crew of loyal Mistlings early on and eventually leading the rebel army in the Mistborn series of novels.
Cheerful and impulsive, Mistborn's author, Brandon Sanderson, describes him as a psychopath.
An Allomancer, Kelsier excells at Steelpushing and Ironpulling, and can also Pewter-drag.
These terms may be unfamiliar to those who have not read the novels and the easiet way to describe this is that Mistborn's three schools of magic revolve around metals, each having a different use in Allomany, Feruchemy, and Hemalurgy.
