heroes New Hero: Valeera Sanguinar

We hear her talk at around 2:57 in the Varian & Ragnaros reveal video from BlizzCon. The female voice in the Forged By Fire video matches the voice of Valeera Sanguinar from the Rogue Order Hall in Legion. We can safely assume Valeera is the next Hero to be added to the Hero roster soon.

This isn't the only evidence we've got. Blizzard has added and removed Valeera & Lunar Year 2017 from their official press kit website. It had the date January 24,

Another pretty accurate leak of Hero/Skin releases from what seems to be 4chan from November 2016 got all Heroes/Skins right and the only remaining Heroes are Valeera and Kel'thuzad.

Indeed. It should be a pet that if killed sends KT into a berserk mode.

And Heroes of the Storm's Warcraft Assassin circle-jerk continues, that makes five in a row, and still no Diablo Hero for Diablo's Anniversary, just the worst Brawl ever.

The VA in the trailer is Jennifer Hale, while Valeera is voiced by Tara Platt.

Such slap on the face, right?

While rounding up the Hearthstone heroes lineup seems like a decent and flavorful idea, I can't help but think this game doesn't need more Assasin heroes. It's already way too oversaturated IMO. Lot of viable and different things there, and going "what people like" instead of "what the game needs" design route is the straightest road to damnation.

Personally, I would like to see a Support character added, ASAP. As a Support main, I can't help but wonder how HotS got this far with such a small pool, where there are only essentially 4 unique characters for that role - Kharazim and Tyrande because of their high damage output, Auriel because of the unique  healing mechanic and Tassadar because he sucks. Everything else is just variations on sustain/damage split, bar some general utility. We had a very good  "supportive" Warrior in Zarya - a very good hero and interesting design for sure - so why can't we have more "multiclassing" Supports, like Kharazim or Tyrande? 

Medivh in my book classifies as a Support and he is an excelent example on how can you make a Support without heals - he has a ton of utility in Raven Form and Portals. You can help your team with vision and mobility, not just with bonus HP or damage, y'know.

People don't like playing Support, I can get behind that. You know why? Because their gameplay sucks and all the supports are pretty much the same. Other MOBAs like DotA and League have more supportive characters that create a very diverse gameplay for that role, especially League. There are a ton of supports, tanky or magey. You don't have to strap heals on and call it a day. The problem is you can strap crowd control and call it a day, but that's another LoL/DotA design issue. 

What I'm trying to say is that there is a lot more space for Support that just being a mobile Healing Fountain or a Crowd Control bot. And if you are getting paid for developing an awesome game, you can explore that fairly easy.

TL;DR Blizz add more supports pls so I can kick ass with Red Talent Kharazim without ruining the game because we have another similar guy and our healing is covered. Kappa.

Yes, a huge slap in the face. Not only did they just reskin Lost Cavern for Diablo's anniversary and call it a day, but we're getting the same class over and over. There are already more Assassins than Supports and Specialists COMBINED, and more Warcraft heroes than EVERYTHING ELSE combined, and then to top it all off, we got five of BOTH in a row. Not only that, but they thought we needed more Warcraft Assassins on Diablo's anniversary instead of a Diablo hero.

 

Another Warcraft hero? Sure, grudgingly, but sure. Another Assassin? Sure, grudgingly, but sure. Five Warcraft Assassins in a row? No, that's super excessive and pointless. We need more Supports, we need more Specialists, and throwing in another tank every once in a while would be neat. Blizz, no more damn Assassins, no more damn Warcraft heroes, and certainly not both. I'd be content never to get another Warcraft Assassin again. We have Diablo, we have StarCraft, we have Overwatch. Do something with them. I'm not even asking for something specific, just ANYTHING BUT MORE WARCRAFT ASSASSINS.

You think valeera will be another stealth character kinda like how Nova and Zeratul are? As for talk of KT that would be so fucking awesome - Death and Decay?! LOL That would be ridiculous { was a big siege ability in the original wc3 games } Bone armor? maybe? some sort of slow like a jaina? in any case HUGE hype about KT idk about valeera ...... I just hope they both come out well they're kinda just being tossed onto the table like " here's your last two heroes " ENJOY!  Also on a final note I imagine Valeera having some finisher like an execute and some ability similar to zeratul's. Lots of theories in my mind BUT HYPE

I can totally agree with you guys on the please not more Warcraft heroes damn it! And we all know we already got too many Assassins compared to the other classes. I do think however that the reason they have more Warcraft characters then any other is because of the fact that with World of Warcraft being such a massive and long standing game they have FAR more story and characters to choose from then they do from Diablo, Starcraft and Overwatch. I personally wish they had more Starcraft to pull from but that's just me loving Scifi stuff :). And all these damn assassins and they can't make one of Kyle Vlaros, The Blackthorne (from Blizzard's old Blackthorne game) instead of another damn Warcraft hero?! Damn it! Make him a hero like you did The Lost Vikings, Damn it! :p

If Blizzard does plan to add the remaining Hearthstone heroes (not including the alternate ones), then the only two remaining will be Anduin Wrynn and Garrosh Hellscream. Logically, they would be a Support (or maybe an Assassin/Support Multiclass) and a Warrior. So at least there's some hope of other roles.

I'm just hoping they start hitting some of the other Overwatch heroes - I'd be so down for Lucio to appear.

I believe KT himself is a leak, so there is no 100% confirmation that he is an assassin.

Yeah, just trying to point out that everyone is upset about the warcraft assassins, trying to look on the bright side cause he may not be assassin... maybe....

      The latest Reddit Q/A dealt with Genji and the new Hanamura battleground. We bring you a summary of the most relevant questions that received blue responses.
      Reddit Genji & Hanamura Q/A Roundup: Apr 25
      Most important information
      Alarak, Tyrande, Lt. Morales reworks are coming soon Map rotation is in the works Loot Chests Reroll Pricing Normal: 250/500/750 Gold Epic: 500/1,000/1,500 Gold Future Reworks
      While there is no ETA, the following Heroes will receive updates in near future
      Alarak Tyrande Lt. Morales Genji
      Blizzard started working on the Hero in August The team approached the idea of allowing Deflect to work like it does in Overwatch (where it reflects most abilities/projectiles). In Heroes, there were a lot of odd scenarios (e.g. deflecting a Flamestrike / Blizzard). They tried to fix it by having Genji constantly aim the deflection, but that felt bad given its short duration and the fact you constantly had to bash "W" Deflect is seen as aurvival skill for reversing sticky situations that Genji often finds himself in Due to Genji's nature of being a high mobility, high damage Assassin, devs didn't want to add many talents that ventured outside of that defined role Swift Strike (aside from globals) is the longest movement ability in the game Allowing his Swift Strike [E] to collide with walls would cause plenty of issues - it would make securing kills difficult, clipping the side of a building or a bush could feel frustrating. Secondly, they wanted Genji to be played very aggressively, appearing in the middle of team fights at any given moment Reviewing his kit from Overwatch, they learned that pulling out the sword is a huge deal and sometimes it's deliberate for Genji. Because of this, they didn't decide to go with a melee-centric Q for Genji Heroes with lots of mobility are taxed highly in other areas to ensure that they are balanced and fun to play against Creating an alternative sword-based attack (Genji's second Heroic ability - Dragonblade) was more interesting than giving him the Tracer treatment. Hanamura
      The first version of healing pulse had an AoE cleanse built into it Blizzard's still eager to create maps with "unique conditions" (like Hanamura & Towers of Doom) in the future Internal testing showed that an 8 HP core constantly pushed the game to a 24 minute range, which is longer than ideal Dehaka was an initial concern, since there's a lack of bushes/scrubs on the map. More were added to favor his travel mechanic The art team came up with Hanamura and when they were brainstorming their approach to building the first Overwatch Battleground they wanted to do Payloads - because it gives Heroes something never done before - a mobile objective. They were concerned with potential complexity of the battleground It's a constant struggle between developing new ideas versus becoming the game with too many ideas Misc
      Combating toxic behavior is ongoing, but they want to avoid accidentally taking action against players (something like intentional feeding can be harder to pick out) Some sort of forgiveness for players affected by toxic behavior and disconnects is planned At some point, the Heroes eSports webpage and HoTS Tournaments will be accessible (read) via an in-game tab, no ETA They will keep adding new content to loot boxes No brawl-themed portraits are considered for now, existing brawl portraits will be achievements Map rotation will be added relatively soon and the team wants to get more aggressive with updating battlegrounds, similar to what they do for Heroes There is no set formula to determine camp despawns during objectives; On Infernal Shrines, they learned that active mercenary camps end up supporting the team more than a lost objective No changes to requirements to play Ranked with 2.0 are planned Prices for rerolling Loot Chsts: Normal: 250/500/750 Gold Epic: 500/1,000/1,500 Gold No loading screen complexity is planned, they want the information to stay simple Heroes devs work very closely with the Overwatch team to make sure that Heroes are genuine. Animations are done from scratch Blizzard Mantra - "The game needs to be easy to learn, but difficult to master" End-game screen Macros to congratulate the enemy team are considered There are much more AA Heroes than casters and it's something they want to balance out
