heroes HotS: Blue Tweets, Dustin Browder Edition

With yesterday's balance patch, a lot of people had questions about current and/or future changes on their favourite Heroes. Game director Dustin Browder was once again there to provide all the answers!

 

First of all, the Gazlowe changes in the latest PTR build are not the rework of the Hero that was promised in Blizzcon. The rework will come at a later date. In another tweet, we got a glimpse of what the team likes about Gazlowe and therefore intends to keep for him.

 

 

The team is also looking at a bigger fix for Kael'thas. Specifically, Dustin Browder isn't happy with his talent win rates and his Arcane Barrier. Community manager Spyrian clarified on Reddit that the Kael'thas adjustments are currently being worked on and we will see them in a future patch.

 

 

Thrall's Earthquake might receive a minor buff.

 

 

No news for the Tychus update.

 

 

Bolt of the Storm was removed from Nova and Dustin hinted that other Heroes may have a similar fate. Nova may also get further changes in the future if the current ones don't work well.

 

 

Lastly, Sylvanas' Possession skill is going to get reworked, but it's going to happen after the next balance patch.

 

 

Wow, that was a lot of tweets to review! What do you think of the latest and the future Hero changes?

No matter how they change KT, he will be op unless they take away bomb splash talent.

But I have to admit it was way easy to play kt before, it was just staying far back and just use your D+Q, now it's bomb on everyone, barrier and run away.

      Next week, Ragnaros will hit test servers. It's likely there will also be a balance update. Trikslyr wrote on reddit that a new balance Q/A is scheduled for December 6 and will last roughly 1.5 hours.

      The last balance update dates back to November 15 when Varian was released. We've seen some hotfixes on November 21. My wild guess would be balance update next week and Ragnaros live the week after. Reworked Haunted Mines should be back too.

      The Nexus Challenge has been introduced in mid-November and is here to stay until January 4, 2017. It offers quite interesting Heroes that are a beneficial addition to your roster, a 31-day Stimpack and even more rewards if you're into Overwatch.
      If you feel like it's taking too long to complete the 30 games then you're doing it wrong! Most of this is common sense, but you can easily finish it in several hours, because AI games with Friends count towards the 30 game requirement.
      First, join an in-game chat, such as /lfg or /reddit. It makes looking for other people who also want to complete the objective much easier. The easiest method is to complete 30 games with AI set to Beginner with 4 other players. You can completely ignore objectives and all players should focus on pushing a single lane together. This is called AI rush and my games usually take no more than 5-6 minutes before we destroy the enemy core.  I've been even able to complete a game in 4:40.
      Tips
      If you're joining a random group, don't forget to right-click a player's portrait and add him as a friend. I usually do this with every group member, because sometimes a single person doesn't confirm it. Don't start the game by clicking "Ready" unless at least one player has accepted your friend request or the next game played won't count toward the Nexus Challenge requirement. We've got guides ready for all the Heroes you get from the challenge Auriel Greymane Kerrigan Li-Ming Zarya Ideal compositions for speed runs, should include Sylvanas (to disable structures), Auriel (no mana dependency), Zarya or Tassadar for shields etc. (thanks to @Krazyito for pointing out).
