Heroes of the Storm Glossary

Recommended Posts

what is carry, caries? this term is not yet included in the glossary 

 

Carry is a late-game hero. Carries are usually weak in the early-game, but get strong in the late-game. This is why having too many carries is bad because you will get behind in the early game.

There are no carries in Heroes of the Storm, so having it in the glossary would be at best nonsensical, and at worst misleading. Granted, certain heroes do become relatively stronger as the game progresses, neither the game nor the characters are designed with the ability to  "carry" in the traditional sense of the term. Stick to playing as a team - you'll find more success than trying to single handedly trying to turn a game with your 1337 Illidank moverinos.

I can't seem to find "Invulnerable" in the glossary. Where can I find it?

From what I found, Invulnerable means that you are immune to damage and CC. It's like statis, but you're able to move.

More than that; invulnerable means immune to all hostile effects and their application (which includes damage over time, silence, etc., on top of crowd control and damage). Invulnerability effects also remove such effects currently active the target, making it a pseudo-cleansing mechanic.

meta?

everyone takes for granted that meta isn't really an English word. everyone keeps using it, and I don't fully understand what it means.

Meta in HotS context usually stands for "Most effective tactics available" and is often used in place of "flavour of the month" - basically meta says what is strong and popular in the game right now.

This topic should be pinned.

It was decided not to pin the thread, but rather create another thread linking to the Glossary and this thread. Thanks for pointing it out!

So would slang like oom (- out of Mana ) not be included here? Also is there a term for defeating a camp but capturing it when optimal ( when objective starts etc etc )

This is correct. The original post is incorrect.

Committing: The concept of the performing any given task without hesitation or withdrawal, irregardless of the consequences.

 

"Irregardless" is not a word.

Irregardless is a word with the same meaning as regardless.

"Irregardless was popularized in dialectal American speech in the early 20th century. Its increasingly widespread spoken use called it to the attention of usage commentators as early as 1927. The most frequently repeated remark about it is that "there is no such word." There is such a word, however." from Merriam Webster. They also made an article that addresses the word.

      Heroes Developer Blizz_DWarner wrote a personal post on Reddit, thanking the community for the amazing time they've had designing the game over the 8 or so years.
      (Source)
      Hi everyone!
      Just wanted to pop in and give a proper personal thank you and goodbye to all the lovelies that have kept the community alive and thriving over the years.
      I’m gonna get mushy for a bit, but I feel I can’t even begin to express how much this game and its community means to me. Anyone who has worked on any artistic or creative endeavor knows that some portion of ‘you’ goes into your work and becomes inextricably written into your soul. It's painful to look back and see those freshly separated fragments of 'you' suspended in time, but that's life eh?
      I started on this project some 8 or so years ago as an assistant technical designer, originally tasked with simple data implementations of the first sets of maps and heroes. Since then, I’ve touched probably every map, dozens of reworks, several core hero designs and of course several thousand bugs. This work was not spawned out of some special DWarner pocket dimension though, it occurred here, in the real (digital) world, with my hundreds of (very talented and handsome) coworkers and most importantly, you.
      Despite what community consensus might state, designers are usually present in forum discussions, watching popular streams (special shoutout to FollowGrubby, CCL, and the crew of Into The Nexus) and of course sharing dank memes. All of your participation and energy helped us trudge through our difficult days (it’s still a job after all), guide our decision making, and just generally help us feel like we’re part of something more than just data fields and debug maps. We couldn’t have done it without you, so thanks, really.
      If you made it this far, raise a glass of whatever and say cheers to all! Cheers to the passionate, cheers to the haters, cheers to the memers, cheers to the contrarians! Cheers to the goof leaguers, wood leaguers and the most sparkling diamonds! Cheers to the quickmatchers, cheers to the Vs AI’rs, cheers to the ppl that play every night, or only twice a year! Cheers to Spazzo and Notbelial and all the lurkers too! Cheers to CCL, the 323r’s, the 6.5r’s! Cheers to the whole damn lot of you ❤️
      Steaming hot regards,
      Blizz_DWarner
      P.S. I'll see you all in Diablo 4 ?

      Blizzard made some changes to the free Hero rotation that resets each Tuesday in the latest patch, changing this week's rotation.
      The free Hero rotation won't reset weekly. Instead, it will reset every 1st, 8th, 15th, and 22nd of every month. As a result, the free Hero rotation posted on June 12 changed with the patch.
      The following Heroes are free to play until July 15, 2022:

      A new spectral skin for the Butcher is now available for purchase in Heroes of the Storm!
      The skin was released with the latest patch and costs 525 Shards or 5,000 Gold.
      Flavor Text
      An unrelenting hacking echoed off the walls of the Cathedral and as Prince Aidan made his way through its depths, the sound only grew louder. There were no screams; just that dreadful sound... over and over.

      The latest minor Heroes of the Storm patch added a new Login reward -- the Epic Arcane Chaos Lizard mount. In this post, we preview it in more detail.
      The mount is rewarded by simply logging in to Heroes of the Storm.

      Flavor Text
      Adorned in heavy armor and brimming with the power of the Nexus, the mere sight of an epic chaos lizard and its rider can be enough to turn the tide of battle.

      The mount has 3 tints according to the Nexus Compendium, but only the Arcane one is  available to players. The following variations cannnot be obtained. Images courtesy of the Nexus Compendium.
