Free Hero With Alarak Patch

Recommended Posts

KPZN5Y9HC23Y1472488815606.jpg

Anyone who logs in the game after the September 13 patch will get a hero for free!

The Alarak patch has just dropped on the PTR and you will have the chance to test it for the next two weeks. You should look forward to it going live not just for the many new features and changes it introduces, but also because you will have the chance to get a free hero!

You can choose between Anub'arak, Thrall and Tyrande. If you already own any of these heroes, they will be replaced with Nazeebo, Sonya, and Uther, in that order. If you still own all of these heroes, you will get their value in gold.

How to Earn your Hero:

Just play Heroes of the Storm - it’s as simple as that! Anyone who logs into Heroes after our next major patch goes live on September 13 will be met with a new popup asking them to claim their reward. Choices will be final, so take some time to look over your options using the detail screen provided for each Hero before locking in your decision.

Who Can I Choose?

Everyone will be given a choice between three Heroes to begin with – Tyrande, Anub’arak, and Thrall. If you already own any of these Heroes, they will be replaced with Nazeebo, Sonya, and Uther, in that order. If you already own all six of these Heroes, we will grant you their equivalent value in Gold (4,000)! All of the free Hero choices have the same Gold and real money value, so don’t worry about trying to find the best bang for your buck, just choose the Hero that you want to play!

We hope you’ll enjoy this new addition to your Hero roster. We’ll see you (and your new Hero) in the Nexus, soon!

Bear in mind that Thrall, Tyrande and Uther are on discount this week, so it's a good opportunity to get your hands on them if you prefer to get one of the other heroes (or gold) for free. You can check the rest of this week's sales here.

This is a great move by blizzard to reward new and returning players with a pick of very solid (some even active in the top end meta) heroes for just playing again. I've got all but Uther on the list, but getting anything for free is awesome! Especially they are giving the gold even if you don't need the hero!

Got every hero in the game out thus far, but I could use that 4k gold to save for Alarak! :)

Was thinking exactly the same here!

      The new Season has just started and the first Nexus Anomaly comes in the form of Experience Globes which can be gathered from fallen Minions. Check out our Anomalies guide to learn more about how the globes work, affect the meta, and interact with each Hero.
      Storm League 2019 Season 4 is in full swing right now, meaning that the first Nexus Anomaly has been enabled in all regions. The developers have changed how Experience is gathered from Minions in all Game Modes and instead of simply being around, you must now collect Experience Globes from dead Minions. The idea is to introduce a new anomaly each Season and depending on community feedback, some anomalies may become permanent additions to the game. 
      Did you know that Abathur's Evolve Monstrosity will not soak Experience Globes unless it's affected by Symbiote?
      Check out our Nexus Anomaly guide for more information!

      Our twenty-ninth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier list for the month of December is here!
      The latest meta tier list for December 2019 is here!
      Welcome to another Icy Veins's Meta Tier List for the December 3 patch. 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).
      Using the list
       
      Current ranked mode map rotation
       
      Current anomaly
      Experience Globes. For more information about this Anomaly, simply refer to our Anomaly guide.

      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.
