Who's the New Hero?

Remember the guy who has been predicting new Hero, Skins & Mount additions with a 100% accuracy? Well, we haven't heard from him since May and the only Heroes left to be added according to his post are Varian & Blademaster Samuro.

Zarya Trait Nerf

Yesterday, Blizzard issued a hotfix to apply a nerf to Zarya's trait. Here's the post by Ravinix.

Pretty sure the next hero will be Varian given the artwork data mining. That would be really cool to see him as a Warrior, whether as a tank or bruiser sort of role.

Regardless, this game feels like it is on a role right now. The meta is pretty great, the viable heroes list keeps seemingly expanding, and the game speed is fast but not all rush down based. Really pleased by how much this game has evolved this year, and how we've gotten some great heroes like Li-Ming, Xul, Auriel, and Zarya this year.

Blizz could make Cain with a moveset inspired by CarbotAnimations (Would be Cool If) and the Archivist April Fools Class in Diablo III.

I'd hope that he'd fill a similar role to Sonya, to be honest. Absolutely love playing her.

I wish I could throw more money at this idea, but I'm already throwing everything!

      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.
