Blizzard revealed Zul'jin as the next Hero to be added to the Nexus as we predicted yesterday, when they released a teaser on Twitter.

His abilities including animations were previewed on Facebook and you can view the video here.

Abilities Overview

[Trait] Berserker
Zul’jin gains 1% Attack Speed per 1% of missing Health. 
Zul’jin can activate Berserker to increase the damage of his Basic Attacks by 25% at the cost of 2% of his maximum Health per attack.

[Q] Grievous Throw
Zul’jin throws an axe forward, dealing damage to the first 2 enemies hit and marking them for 8 seconds. Marked enemies take 50% bonus damage from Zul’jin’s next 3 Basic Attacks against them.

[W] Twin Cleave
Throw 2 axes in a large circular arc, dealing damage and slowing affected enemies by 15% per axe for 2 seconds.

[E] Regeneration
Zul’jin channels to regenerate 25% of his maximum Health over 4 seconds. Moving or taking damage while channeling will interrupt this effect.

[R1] Taz’dingo
Zul’jin is Unkillable for the next 4 seconds, and cannot be reduced to less than 1 Health. Taz’dingo!

[R2] Guillotine
Zul’jin throws a massive guillotine into the sky that crashes down on enemies in the targeted area. The lower Zul’jin’s Health, the more damage it deals.

Can't wait to try him out! Wish we could see exact numbers, cooldowns, etc. but still just knowing abilities and talents from the get go is great. Looks like he's gonna be a very high skillcap as well, or at least for berserker. I can see a basic attack build, a survivability build, and a build for q and w as well. Seems like a much higher skillcap Valla, who is better with a basic attack build than a Hungering Arrow build or Multishot build.

Blizz is getting better and better with the Talents. His Kit is very potent and all his talents seems very useful.

Interesting Hero. It seems like an AA gul'dan, instead of juggling mana you're juggling your health for damage. When he be in da Nexus, mon?

My interest is certainly piqued, but judgement will have to wait till we see cool downs and base stats. Not much utility in his kit (though headhunter looks very interesting) so he will likely hinge completely on his tuning.

for example, is he a high hit point bruiser whose gameplay will focus on a balancing act of regent and sustained damage? Or is he a high base attack glass cannon that is most dangerous when he's cornered and almost dead? Looking forward to finding out on the ptr!

I agree.  His kit seems like a Gul'dan in reverse.  It certainly will require skill to walk a fine line with your hit points.  His tuning will definately be the focus of his ability to be played.

Tbh, I'm more excited about the skin possibilities than anything else.

      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.
