With a new PTR around the corner (as confirmed by Blizzard in today's gamescom stream), the Monk, Kharazim, and other new content will be available in the Nexus very soon. A video previewing the new Heroes, skins, and mounts from this next patch is included!

 

Blizzard posted this update this morning:

 

Blizzard Icon New Heroes, Skins, and Mounts Coming Soon

 

We have some exciting new Heroes, skins, and mounts in development and we're thrilled to bring you a sneak peek at two powerful characters set to make their debut in the Nexus: Kharazim, the demon-punching monk, and the Champion of the Horde himself, Rexxar!

 

These skins and mounts are not available in our in-game shop just yet, but you’ll be seeing them soon. Until then, check out the video below to take a closer look:

  • Kharazim
    • Master Kharazim
    • Jade Dragon Kharazim 
  • Rexxar
    • Master Rexxar
    • Frostlord Rexxar 
  • Judgement Uther and Themed Abilities
  • Earthbreaker Thrall and Themed Abilities
  • Sgt. Doomhammer and Themed Abilities
  • Prisoner Tychus
  • Blackheart’s Doubloon Mount
  • Malthael’s Phantom Steed Mount
  • Treasure Goblin Mount
  • Judgement Uther’s Charger Mount

 

What are your favorite new skins and mounts from the video above, and what else would you like to see added to Heroes of the Storm? Let us know in the comments below!

 

In addition to Kharazim, Rexxar, and the in-development Artanis, Blizzard also debuted the StarCraft Medic as an upcoming Hero during today's gamescom event! The Medic is the first StarCraft support, and one of her ultimate abilities will be a StarCraft II Medivac that can jump to a new location on the field.

I noticed that you mistakenly put that the Medic is the first Starcraft support. The first is Artanis. Just so you know ;)

Artanis is a Warrior! You might be thinking of Tassadar, and whether or not he's a support is certainly a hotly debated topic. :p

      A new in-development video previews Valeera's abilities, several new skins and three mounts!
      Blizzard has released a new in-development video on the Heroes of the Storm YouTube channel. Earlier today, they teased with Thistle Tea on Twitter. Maybe Valeera will use Energy as a resource and Sinister Strike will generate combo points. Eviscerate would deal damage based on the number of combo points she has.
      Valeera Abilities
      She seems to be a faithful copy of WoW's assassination rogue. Here are her abilities based on WoW tooltips to give you a better idea of her kit.
      [D] -  Vanish (Trait)
      [Q] - Sinister Strike
      [W] - Blade Flurry
      [E] - Eviscerate
      [R1] - Smoke Bomb
      R2 - Cloak of Shadows
      Valeera also comes with a "Demon Hunter" skin that will be part of a bundle. The skin has themed abilities.
      New Skins
      Master Valeera Demon Hunter Valeera Lunar Li-Ming Monkey King Samuro New Mounts
      Felsaber

      Nimbus Cloud

      Lunar Rooster

      Screenshots were taken from the in-development video below.

      Blizzard announced on Twitter that Valeera arrives on Public Test Realm tomorrow. 
      Zul'jin got released without testing, but Valeera is hitting PTR soon and she will probably go live the week after. We'll be adding her abilities and talents once they become available. Remember, if you purchase a Hero on PTR, it will automatically unlock for the region of your choice when the patch goes live.

      After the free Hero weekend, the standard rotation returns with 10 new Heroes that have been selected for gameplay, it's weird that it matches the rotation that Blizzard posted last week, but they decided to change last week's rotation on short notice.
      Free-to-Play Hero Rotation: January 17 - 24, 2017
      Clicking on a Hero name will take you to the corresponding build guide.
