I'm surprised that there are no new skins for existing Heroes.

Still, I'm very excited about this character, the Cho'gall rework, and the revamped UI.

Cho'gall rework? Where was this talked about?

There's a PCGamesN article about the upcoming patch. It says

  • Cho'gall will be getting minor reworks, buffs and the return of Cho'gall Outbreak, letting him spread through the community.
    • More interesting choices for talents.
    • Eye of Kilrogg and Shove, previously level one talents for Gall, will be made baseline.
    • Interaction between each half will be increased, with a new trait.

Sadly they said "minor reworks", so we won't see a major talent change... But hey, it's something! Maybe now they will allow us to solo queue as Cho'gall instead of requiring to party with a friend. That would be nice.

At least Cho'gall will also get a passive armor, and a revamped trait. I'm my opinion he should get a high physical and spell armor and get his health decreased, so % damage like Tychus mini-gun doesn't shit all over him.

I also wonder what new talents they will add in the level 1 tier, since Eye of Kilrogg and Shove will be baseline now (thank God).

Maybe, but the queue time would likely be a bit too high, sadly.  Shove Icon Shove being made baseline suggests it could be true, given that the ability could be used to nudge Cho into going where you need.

Hopefully all these changes will move Cho'gall at least one tier up.

That would be nice, maybe they'll make it so you can play Cho with the AI controlling Gall (since Cho does all the movement anyhow) and with you able to do the Z speed up yourself as Cho. Then you would see him played a lot more I think. Probably not in ranked since it wouldn't be as good as 2 real players , but at least in QM could still be pretty fun.

That would be nice indeed, because currently the Cho'gall AI is very messy. I was once in this game where both the Cho and Gall DC'ed mid-match; then the rest of the game resumed with the AI controlling only Cho, without Gall releasing a single attack. Very fucked up.

I don't get why they're showing off the Elemental Stag mount as if it's gonna be a thing in a bundle. It's the reward for placing in any TL rank and for Plat and up ranks in HL that was already shown as being the reward back when they gave the overview of season 3 stuff. They had a pic of it in the article back then too.

And on a skin idea for Probius that I'm SURE they already thought of too and have in the works for him is a Beholder/ Eye of C'thun skin. That would be either a $10 Themed Abilities skin or a $15 Legendary Skin with themed abilities & 'unique animations' for the added eye-stalk tentacles. Probably just a Themed Abilities $10 one like Alarak's C'thun skin.  I would SO buy that. I mean I think a lot of us would :D. I'd have already gotten the Alarak one last time it was 50% off if I didn't suck so hard with him :p. 

Sidenote on mounts in general: Damn things are WAY too high priced for just a mount ($10). And worse they NEVER go on sale at 50% off like random skins do each week. AND they remove the damn things from even being able to buy them in general after like two weeks of adding them as a single item to buy. WTF Blizzard!?

spelling correction, and added bit about mounts
