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.



The Medic, from StarCraft, reimagined for Heroes of the Storm from the StarCraft II universe.


What new Hero are you most excited for?

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

      Blizzard started posting Hero teasers on Twitter yesterday and it's more than certain that we'll see a new Hero introduction at Gamescom. Rockyd900 viewed the source code of the first teaser and the alt image said "teaser for Mephisto" before Blizzard removed it.
      After Deckard Cain, it appears that Mephisto will be the next Hero to join the fray. Excited to see a new Diablo Hero? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
      Teaser 1
      Here we have the first teaser posted by Blizzard and Rockyd900's screenshot of the Mephisto description.
