Blizzard revealed Zul'jin as the next Hero to be added to the Nexus as we predicted yesterday, when they released a teaser on Twitter.

His abilities including animations were previewed on Facebook and you can view the video here.

Abilities Overview

[Trait] Berserker
Zul’jin gains 1% Attack Speed per 1% of missing Health. 
Zul’jin can activate Berserker to increase the damage of his Basic Attacks by 25% at the cost of 2% of his maximum Health per attack.

[Q] Grievous Throw
Zul’jin throws an axe forward, dealing damage to the first 2 enemies hit and marking them for 8 seconds. Marked enemies take 50% bonus damage from Zul’jin’s next 3 Basic Attacks against them.

[W] Twin Cleave
Throw 2 axes in a large circular arc, dealing damage and slowing affected enemies by 15% per axe for 2 seconds.

[E] Regeneration
Zul’jin channels to regenerate 25% of his maximum Health over 4 seconds. Moving or taking damage while channeling will interrupt this effect.

[R1] Taz’dingo
Zul’jin is Unkillable for the next 4 seconds, and cannot be reduced to less than 1 Health. Taz’dingo!

[R2] Guillotine
Zul’jin throws a massive guillotine into the sky that crashes down on enemies in the targeted area. The lower Zul’jin’s Health, the more damage it deals.

Can't wait to try him out! Wish we could see exact numbers, cooldowns, etc. but still just knowing abilities and talents from the get go is great. Looks like he's gonna be a very high skillcap as well, or at least for berserker. I can see a basic attack build, a survivability build, and a build for q and w as well. Seems like a much higher skillcap Valla, who is better with a basic attack build than a Hungering Arrow build or Multishot build.

Blizz is getting better and better with the Talents. His Kit is very potent and all his talents seems very useful.

Interesting Hero. It seems like an AA gul'dan, instead of juggling mana you're juggling your health for damage. When he be in da Nexus, mon?

My interest is certainly piqued, but judgement will have to wait till we see cool downs and base stats. Not much utility in his kit (though headhunter looks very interesting) so he will likely hinge completely on his tuning.

for example, is he a high hit point bruiser whose gameplay will focus on a balancing act of regent and sustained damage? Or is he a high base attack glass cannon that is most dangerous when he's cornered and almost dead? Looking forward to finding out on the ptr!

I agree.  His kit seems like a Gul'dan in reverse.  It certainly will require skill to walk a fine line with your hit points.  His tuning will definately be the focus of his ability to be played.

Tbh, I'm more excited about the skin possibilities than anything else.

      We present our sixth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier List for the D.Va patch of May 2017.
      Our sixth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier List for the month of May 2017 is here!
      Welcome to Icy Veins's Meta Tier List for the D.Va patch. The goal if 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.
      Using the list
      As stated above, tier lists are easy to mistake for gospel. As new strategies are discovered and experimented with, so changes the perception of the relative strengths of each hero. Tier lists still prove to be useful as a snapshot of player expectations in terms of drafting. Although it is generally considered preferable to focus on high tier heroes (Prime and Core tiers), it is important to note that Heroes of the Storm's wild character and map designs make it so that any given hero's tier position is prone to fluctuate depending on the situation at hand.
      One classic example of such is that of Kerrigan on the Infernal Shrines map. Although we currently judge her to be a mid-tier hero, her drafting priority shoots up to first-pick or first-ban material on this specific map due to the nature of its objective. Certain heroes also synergise so well with each other that the sole fact of having the opportunity of drafting them together is generally enough to increase their potential. Tassadar and Tracer, for instance, are generally nightmarish to deal with for many. There are too many examples of these interactions to reasonably produce here, but we invite you to consult our guides to know exactly where and when each hero shines. The guides have been linked in the lists below for your convenience - just click any of the hero names to access them.
      If you're newer to the game, also consider visiting our glossary for a comprehensive list of discrete Heroes of the Storm terms.
      Additionally, a + or - sign (or several of them) indicates short-to-medium term predictions (which is to say, about a month) for tier increase(s) or decrease(s), respectively. These are often updated after significant balance patches and/or when clear trends are emerging.
       
      Prime Tier
      - Prime tier heroes are considered to be extremely strong in all situations, and show no obvious weakness. They are very often banned or picked right away, as they generally dictate the pace of most matches.
       
      Core Tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Anub'arak+ Falstad Malfurion+ Nazeebo Artanis Gul'dan Rehgar Probius Arthas Genji↑ Uther Sylvanas Diablo Greymane↑     D.Va (new) Li-Ming     Johanna Ragnaros     Muradin Samuro-     Sonya Thrall     Varian (Tank) Valla     Zarya Zeratul     Core tier heroes are strong in a wide variety of situations and have few counter-picking possibility. They should form the core of your team, and be picked after Prime Tier heroes have been distributed.
       
      Viable Tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Chen Alarak+ Auriel Azmodan Dehaka↓ Chromie Brightwing Gazlowe E.T.C. Jaina Kharazim   Leoric Kael'thas Li Li   Rexxar Kerrigan Lt. Morales     Lunara Lúcio↓     Raynor Tyrande↑     The Butcher       Valeera       Varian (Damage)       Zul'jin                     Viable tier heroes are generally well-rounded that have either fallen out of favour, or, inversely, are on the rise in popularity, due to the current Prime tier contenders.
       
      Niche tier
      Warrior Assassin Support Specialist Cho'gall Cassia (new) Tassadar↓ Abathur Stitches Cho'gall   Medivh Tyrael Illidan   Murky   Nova   Sgt. Hammer   Tracer   The Lost Vikings   Tychus   Xul       Zagara Niche tier heroes have niche application on certain maps or for certain team compositions. They are generally picked to "round out" your team composition when your team composition is missing out on key components, such as a "jungler" (mercenary camps), a solo laner, or solid waveclear.
       
      Bottom Tier
      - Bottom tier Heroes are deemed to be either considerably weaker than the majority of other Heroes, or much more challenging to play properly. Although they may situationally shine, these Heroes are generally avoided by most players.
       
      Monthly metagame assessment
      Dear Heroes, quit being so balanced. I might end up losing my job writing tier lists.
      Genji↑: Against all odds, our friendly cybernetic ninja has picked up the pace. With the initial wave of fanboyish hype dying out and dedicated players finding the time to practice the high skill-capped hero, Genji has risen up to be a strong pick, though not unexpectedly, at high levels of play only. Which makes sense, given how reliant he is on coordination to initiate the ever-important kill chains.
      Greymane↑: Who'd have thought that a large chunk of %-based damage (Cursed Bullet) would do well in a tank-dominated metagame? On top of strong waveclear and the ability to solo kill a tonne of currently popular heroes, Greymane is here to stay.
      Dehaka↓: The huge damage nerf to Dark Swarm (through the removal of Primal Aggression) made Dehaka unable to waveclear as effectively as he needs to remain competitive. Some of his new talents also are on the weaker side of things, though we could expect some tweaks in the future. In the meantime, there are better choices, especially in the warrior department.
      Lùcio↓: When your main source of healing is reduced by 33%, your win rate goes down by about as much. Lùcio went from overpowered to one of the lowest winning healer in the game, and it's easy to see why.
      Tyrande↑: The rework has been great to the priestess of elune. Everything she did before, she does better now, on top of being able to put out a very reasonable amount of damage. The new Shadowstalk is interesting, particularly when coupled with Darnassian Archery, but ultimately, time will tell if she'll remain more on the support side of things.
      Tassadar↓: He thrives in assassin-heavy metagames. This is not where we're at right now. Your time will come, old friend.
      D.Va: I'm ashamed to say that my initial PTR assessment of D.Va was quite grim, but she's been doing well. Though her damage output isn't the highest, she does neuter certain burst reliant picks due to Defense Matrix, and Bunny Hop and Self-Destruct basically mean you'll never lose a boss fight. Just make sure you pick Hit the Nitrous, or you'll lose 6% more. Talk about a strong talent!
