With the new PTR patch going live a couple of days ago, a huge amount of upcoming content was also datamined. Let's see what the future holds for Heroes of the Storm!


While we already know - thanks to the official announcements - about yesterday's balance patch and the upcoming Lunar Festival 2016, there's still a lot of content that's in store for the next couple of months. The guys at Heroes Nexus have datamined all this information and we are making a summary of it for you right below. Keep in mind that we won't mention the Lunar Skins and Bundles or the Lunar Dragon mount, since they are already covered in our Lunar Festival 2016 article (linked above).


First of all, there is an internal release date of February 9th for the new Hero, Li-Ming! We remind you that Blizzard recently released a video previewing the Wizard. It also seems that Xul will be joining the Nexus around March.


Moreover, there are also some other Skins that are coming soon in the Nexus. A few days ago, Blizzard released a video with previews of all of these skins. Here they are:

  • Crimson Count Arthas
  • Love Doctor Morales
  • Master Li-Ming
  • Star Princess Li-Ming
  • Master Xul
  • Serpent King Xul


Here are the Bundles containing these Skins, as well as the two new mounts. We have also provided their datamined release dates.

    • Tyrael & Demonic Tyrael Skin
    • Valla & Angelic Valla Skin
    • Butcher & Iron Butcher Skin
    • Tyrael's Charger
    • Butcher's Beast


Lastly, the Heroes that will be receiving balance changes in the future are Abathur, Chen, Diablo, Gall, Gazlowe, Kerrigan, Lunara, Malfurion, Nova, Rehgar, Rexxar, Sonya and Zeratul. Especially the Nova and Rehgar changes are very dramatic: it seems that Rehgar is receiving significant buffs, while there is no verdict yet for Nova, although she will certainly feel very different.
