I find a bit odd that he will use Mana instead of Rage since he is from the Warrior-class (though Muradin is a Warrior too and also uses Mana), but still... He is probably one of the Heroes I'm most hyped about. I'm glad he'll be released in a few weeks.

I wonder if this was to give him a reason to go back to base, same for Muradin. With Rage as their resource and both having healing mechanics, they could sit in lane eternally.

Maybe this is their way of "balancing" them?

Makes sense... I was going to mention that Sonya has Rage and can heal, but her healing is nowhere as good as Muradin's.

Yeah, I did think about her, but she only heals when actually hitting something. They can passively heal if I remember right.

      Escape from Braxis is the first Heroes of the Storm PvE Brawl. Instead of fighting the enemy team, you will be surrounded by the Omegaswarm and the goal is to press through the onslaught and make it to the extraction point. Win three games to receive a standard Loot Chest.
      Escape from Braxis is probably the best brawl to date. It feels like playing Diablo in Heroes of the Storm!
      Blizzard (Source)
      Things aren’t looking great, soldier. You’re stranded on Braxis and the UED is overrun. The Omegaswarm has surrounded you on all sides, and your only shot at survival is to press through the onslaught, make it to the extraction point, and get off this forsaken rock. Will you fall victim to the Swarm, or can you work together and Escape from Braxis?
      Rules:
      At the beginning of the Brawl, your team will have the following roster of Heroes to choose from: Warrior: Artanis, Arthas, Johanna, Muradin, Sonya, Tyrael, Varian, Zarya Support: Brightwing, Kharazim, Li Li, Lt. Morales, Lucio, Malfurion, Rehgar, Uther Specialist: Azmodan, Gazlowe, Sgt. Hammer, Nazeebo, Xul Assassin: Cassia, Falstad, Greymane, Gul'dan, Illidan, Jaina, Kael'thas, Kel'Thuzad, Ragnaros, Raynor, Thrall, Valla Player Death: When a Hero dies, they can be resurrected by Allies after a short channel time. If all players die, the mission is failed. Players start at Level 10 and have access to their full talents with a few exceptions (i.e. Bribe) Enemy zerg Heroes will spawn periodically throughout the brawl and will drop new active items exclusive to Escape from Braxis. Push through the onslaught and survive to Escape from Braxis and win the Brawl! Rewards
      Complete three matches of Escape from Braxis to earn a Loot Chest!
      Find out more about the Heroes Brawl game mode on our Heroes Brawl site; and as always, you can find more information on this week’s Brawl by clicking the Brawl Info button at the bottom of the play screen when preparing to queue for the Brawl game mode.

      Winter Veil will be very similar to Hallow's End in terms of functionality. During the event, Winter Veil Loot Chests will drop and they have a chance to contain new and old Winter Veil skins. This year, Blizzard added new skins for Kharazim, Malfurion, Malthael and Valla and the Gingerboard mount!
      It seems that all skins have 5 different tints. A special thanks goes to the Heroes of the Storm reddit community and especially redditor iolixir for most of the screenshots.
      Redditor Davesendave posted all new skins on reddit. Some Heroes are getting new tints for their old skins.
