A new in-development video previews Valeera's abilities, several new skins and three mounts!

Blizzard has released a new in-development video on the Heroes of the Storm YouTube channel. Earlier today, they teased with Thistle TeaThistle Tea on Twitter. Maybe Valeera will use Energy as a resource and Sinister StrikeSinister Strike will generate combo points. EviscerateEviscerate would deal damage based on the number of combo points she has.

Valeera Abilities

She seems to be a faithful copy of WoW's assassination rogue. Here are her abilities based on WoW tooltips to give you a better idea of her kit.

[D] -  VanishVanish (Trait)

[Q] - Sinister StrikeSinister Strike

[W] - Blade FlurryBlade Flurry

[E] - EviscerateEviscerate

[R1] - Smoke BombSmoke Bomb

R2 - Cloak of ShadowsCloak of Shadows

Valeera also comes with a "Demon Hunter" skin that will be part of a bundle. The skin has themed abilities.

First glance, vanish *seemed* broken, until I saw a 2 minute cool down. That seems about right, gives an easy escape but rarely able to be used. Smoke bomb will likely need a cool down reduction, 3 minutes on an ultimate is REALLY long. Will need some more hands on before eviscerate can be properly evaluated.

These are the skills from WoW, not the actual skills from Heroes of Storm.

Good catch. Haven't played a rouge in years so I didn't recognize them as being that exact.

All we need now is Broll and the whole gang will be complete.

On a side note, I need that Monkey King skin in my live. And dat Rooster.

Well, since I really do need the Felsaber, the Lunar Rooster and the Monkey King Samuro, I already know which bundle I am going to buy next. Well played Blizzard, well played... 
I just realised that the Felsaber will probably be in the Valeera bundle so I gotta ad an s to the bundles ...

Guys, I just heard the sound of Cheap Shot at 0:26. I hope she has any Stealth abilities kit. :) 

You are probably right. Having watched the Valeera part of the video for about 10 times in a row, I'm almost sure of it.

As you might notice, Valeera opens on Jaina at 0:16 silencing her, and on Nova at 0:26 stunning her, which points to her having a set of stealth abilities.

GG, Blizzard, my wallet hates you.

Garrote and Cheap Shot sound good, huh? :) I hope there are separate abilities but I'm afraid they will be just additions as talents. It will be nice to see only poison's talents for level 13 fore example. :)
