The fourth Heroes of the Storm comic coincides with the release of Orphea, Heir of the Raven Court.
We find out that Orphea's mother abandonded them when she was a child. The Raven Lord told Orphea that only he can contain the Dark Nexus, but she has her doubts.
"Why build a prison when no one is to be freed?"
Orphea always tries to solve problems in a destructive manner, but she's told to try thinking like her mother for once. She confronts her father who calls her an ungrateful brat.
"Just like your mother you fail to recognize that sacrifices must be made to save this impermanent world."
The Raven Lord
Orphea defeats the Raven Lord at the end of the comic, but she knows it's not over yet.

Our Meta Tier List has been updated for the latest patch!
Welcome to Icy Veins's once-again-belated Meta Tier List for the October 16 patch, which also takes the latest October 31 patch into account. The goal of this list is to try and detail game's current metagame state. The prime goal of such lists is to inform players regarding popular and trending team composition drafting strategies (i.e. the drafting metagame). Although tier listings are generally the product of balance, many factors come into play when discussing the relative perceived strengths of heroes, including player regions, maps, play style, skill level, and, of course, personal perception. As such, any tier list—including this very one—should never be interpreted as gospel, but rather, as a guide to better grasp what to expect with regards to typical drafting experiences. One useful application of such lists is to allow you know which heroes to look out for in terms of practice and counterplay, ultimately improving your knowledge of the game.

Meta heroes define the metagame. They are very often banned or picked right away, as they generally dictate the pace of most drafts and matches.
Generalists form the core of your team and are generally picked after Meta picks have been distributed. They tend to work on most maps, and as part of and against most team compositions. Since this group includes most heroes, I elected to split it into three tiers. High-tier rankings are a result of performance (i.e. win rates) and popularity (i.e. pick and ban rates). This means that heroes with high win rates can be set in low tier; the opposite may also be true.
Situational picks shine on specific maps or as part of specific team compositions.

We've added Orphea to our talent calculator, so now, you can share your favorite builds with friends!
Orphea will be FREE to all BlizzCon 2018 attendees and Virtual Ticket holders next week when she goes live. The first Nexus-born Hero is now available for playtesting on PTR. Check out the latest PTR patch notes here. Oxy had a chance to play her at BlizzCon and share his hands-on experience with the community. Heroes devs revealed upcoming Orphea changes that are currently not active on PTR in the Post-BlizzCon AMA yesterday.
The base cooldown of Shadow Waltz will be increased by 1 second if you miss. The power of Ravenous Hunger & Eldritch Conduit talents will be reduced. Finally, if you want to learn more about how Blizzard designed the Hero, check our Deep Dive panel recap.
