Lúcio is the new Hero to join the Nexus after Valeera. We finally get a new support added to the game!

The last support was Auriel. He will be dropping the bass on PTR starting February 6.

Abilities & Talents

Trait

  • Wall Ride (D)

    • When moving alongside impassable terrain, Lúcio can walk through other units, and his Movement Speed is increased by 20%. This effect stacks with other Movement Speed bonuses.

Basic Abilities

  • Soundwave (Q)

    • Deal damage to enemies in a cone-shaped area and knock them back.

  • Crossfade (W)

    • Play one of two tracks that passively provide allied Heroes with either a Speed Boost or a Healing Boost in a large radius around you. Activate Crossfade to swap tracks.

      • Healing Boost: Restore a small amount of Health every second to Lúcio and nearby allied Heroes.

      • Speed Boost: Increase the Movement Speed of Lúcio and nearby allied Heroes by 15%.

  • Amp It Up (E)

    • Raise Lúcio’s Crossfade track volume for 3 seconds, amping Speed Boost to 45% increased Movement Speed, and significantly increasing the Healing rate of Healing Boost.

Heroic Abilities

  • Sound Barrier (R)

    • After 1 second, Lúcio and nearby allied Heroes gain a massive Shield that rapidly decays over the next 6 seconds.

  • Reverse Amp (R)

    • Blast Lúcio’s Crossfade track at enemy Heroes for 4 seconds, causing Healing Boost to inflict damage every second, and Speed Boost to Slow Movement Speed by 45%.

    • Passive: Increase Amp It Up’s duration to 4 seconds.

You can find the full list of talents here.

It'll be very interesting to see the balance with Lucio and Melee assassins/brawler tanks. Giving a speed boost means you can't outrun them and they'll get autoattacks in easier, and will also make bodyblocks easier. His enemy slowing ult makes it even sillier. Butcher has a new best friend.

I'm really confused of how useful the wall-ride will be. It seems like it will just be a headache with little real bonus. I'm nervous he might need a lot of work.

Pure AOE heal is hard to balance. It's big role is to punish when you can't focus damage (the total opposite of Morales). This is problematic especially in a game where you don't have to aim as strictly as you do in Overwatch to focus down a target. I hope they have another offering of a non-assassin soon because this will take a LOT of work to balance out. They still don't even have him completely balanced in Overwatch, and they want to open this can of worms?

the big thing to note is that "Lúcio can walk through other units" while wall riding. this means that boxing-in and body-blocking are *vastly* less useful against him - he becomes more slippery and hard to pin down when in bottlenecks and tight quarters.

 Re: AOE healing, I also have concerns in terms of power level, but mostly they are for malf/medic/renghar/brightwing: other MOBAs have already covered this ground that dedicated "top you off" healers are toxic for these games and promote passive, defensive gameplay that drags out the action and the game duration. Team One has, at times, indicated that they suspect this might be the case (it definitely is) but I'm wondering when they'll get around to doing something about it. A lot of more interesting and situational supports like Auriel, Karazhim, and (likely) Lúcio could finally be played outside of pre-mades or  double support comps.

 

That said, I think it sounds like the speed boost will be the real star of his kit; 60% (talented) for 3 or 4 seconds (again, talented) is *friggin nuts*

I'm really hyped about Lúcio's announcement. We were in dire need of more Support, and more Overwatch characters are always welcome, as it has a nice and diverse cast with great potential to join in HotS.

I love Lucio, But is a scary hero for sure, his kit is so overpowered on Overwatch and in hots is copy paste with habilities upgrades because of the talents, definitely a hero pick or ban that will shake the meta. I think Ana or Zeniatta would be better choices to add on the game more then Lucio.

I´m hyped for Lucio.

I think his healing won't be so powerful. Probably weaker than Brightwing's.

How is this disappointing? New support and not WoW, isn't that what peeps were screaming for?

 

I wonder if any OW character in HOTS will have mana, like I don't see how Lucio can since it seems that Crossfade is always active, the only quirk in the ability is to change the boost it gives. Reverse Amp will be devastating against melee heroes, both on the slow and damage from the heroic. Lucio's gonna be very interesting.

A good point, and extremely relevant when it comes to Supports / healers in Blizzard games. They dabbled with no mana healing concepts in WoW before, but nothing ever made it onto live from what I remember. Lucio may have a mana or other resource bar, but I doubt his Crossfade will cost anything, similar to Brightwing's Soothing Mist pulses.

As a protoss race  i like to see Karax as specialist deploy purifiers and photon cannon,Rohana as a support and a xilnaga as a tank(Amon) with an ult in real Xilnaga form or (Narud) 

in WOW a dread lord Malganes  as assasin can rake havoc on the battle ,Arcimond as specialist with utilities summon demonic orcs 

was disappointed with the last hero

According to the talent description he will have mana. "16 Up the Frequency. Amp It Up's mana cost is reduced to 80 from 100..."

So Crossfade will most likely be free, with a pretty expensive Amp It Up

I was crying on the start but I dealt with it and it's OK, we've got an original support from Overwatch with interesting mechanics and fun gamestyle. Can't wait for the madafaka Russian badass Stukov though! 

PS. Does Wall Ride have its cooldown?

Well from the talents, I believe he will have mana. Maybe Crossfade will only cost mana to switch but it could be minimal. I guess we'll find out soon ;3

I have not been looking forward for any hero from OW, they are extremely annoying and they haven't earn they place in Blizzard books as others toons had. I don't care if all the heroes we get are from WoW, after all that the best game Blizzard ever released and it have enough characters to make 3 new games just with them. They should have never put OW characters in the game and if they did they should had put characters that wont annoying the hell out of you while you play them. Reaper, Soldier 76, Bastion , Mercy......

Your opinion on the matter is purely subjective, as OW has proven to be one of the most successful new games of 2016. We both know that time in history or lore is not a factor when it comes to heroes or their franchises; Murky has a cult following and was only added to WoW AFTER his debut in the Nexus, while other figures such as Maltheal are highly requested heroes, but haven't been on the scene for as long as many others. 

I love WoW, but I know for a fact other people would argue Diablo, Starcraft or the original RTS (fans out there still want a Warcraft 3) are their best games, and WoW's quality has had more ups and downs than the average celebrity marriage bungee jumping off a moving roller coaster. 

Personally, I don't particularly care, as long as the heroes themselves are fun to play, something that this MOBA set itself out on being from the get go. I don't fully understand the OW hype myself, but the hero roster potential is undeniably there, and I look forward to seeing more fun additions later, much like I look forward to more from other franchises, even the ones I don't frequently play or get excited for.

Now if you read your comment , your opinion is the subjective one. People can say what they want to think what they want but facts are facts. Wow or just Warcraft was the game that provided Blizzard the economic income to stay as one of the powerful companies out there for more than 10 years consecutive. You mentioned Murky without seeing to know much about  him, the fantasy of having a super murloc or a murloc that was different from the rest have always been there. If you think a bit ever BLIZZCON ticket have a different MurKy/murloc. Murky never was a character with a story until they created him, but he was always in the mind of all the fans with the fantasy of being able to play a murloc. It does not matter if they have been down or up that doesn't matter at all in this conversation, they still by far the most famous of them all and number of players. Most of the people in Social Media out there are not happy with OW characters , they again are base in childish backgrounds and the little lore of the game make no sense. Just because the game have been great and the design of the mages mechanics are good does not mean that the characters have any change to stand against any other of Blizzard characters/universes.

Now peace and don't try to jump into people opinions putting your first. Go out there and find out the facts about how many people like or dislike OW characters on HOTS.

      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
