Blizzard Teases New Diablo Hero

Recommended Posts

Blizzard teased a new Diablo Hero both on Twitter and in the launcher. Three lit up candles can be found in Diablo 3's teaser and could hint at either Deckard Cain or Leah.

Update: Only one candle is lit right now in the launcher and Blizzard confirmed on reddit they won't be revealing a new Hero during the Showmatch from their HQ.

Three candles?! Half life 3 confirmed...

I hope it's Cain. We are also due for a specialist/ pseudo support

I don't get how this is a teaser for a new hero, It is just a random trailer for the game showing images of stuff we have already seen and done, and they already announced the new hero long ago is going to be the Necromancer so why all the mystery over it?

Edit: oh nvm I didn't see this was for Heroes of the Storm my mistake.

I'm gonna play it safe and say it's a TLV skin. 

Totally safe. 3 candles, 3 vikings. Diablo TLV skin confirmed.

 

Buuuut anyways, the teaser in my opinion isn't neccesarily (what a word) for Deckard Cain. It could be. But it also could be a bad guy. At least Xul is already our necromancer so no new Nephalem.

- Deckard Cain (?)
- maybe Leah cuz you know, daughter of Diablo and possessed and sort of died but not really (so her comment in the teaser makes sense but you could apply it to almost anything)
- also: WE DON'T HAVE MALTHAEL YET in the nexus
 

But my bet goes towards Captain Rumford. What a guy!

That would be equally cool, especially since we haven't seen a TLV new skin since forever.

I'm pretty sure it's Cain. The whole scene gives that context.

But at the same time we've been trolled before with the D.Va teaser, which had NOTHING to do with her (Hanamura, claw marks on the clan's wooden symbol), but instead teased the new cinematic.

So I'm still placing my bets on the Candle Kobold. "YOU NO TAKE CANDLE!"

Possibly, it's just me because I'm not all that excited to see him in the Nexus, but still, I don't believe it's Cain.

It's Candle! The old wise Candle, semi-specialist, semi-support. It can turn the lights off, if you know what I mean.

I think people read too much into these trailers. All we know is we have 3 candles in a dark place. So people get into their head that the 3 means diablo 3 and the candles mean Cain or Leah cause similar candles were in the D3 launch teaser. Its not as if all the candles in bizzard games could look the same. If you are a WoW person you could say those are the candles in a crypt and they mean the next hero is going to be KT. Its just not enough to go on. Last trailer everyone saw some tiny sparks and swore the next hero was going to be Deathwing and we all know how that turned out.

Maltheal does seem like a better guess then Cain.

I'm kinda hoping it's the sexy spider chick voiced by Claudia Black. Cydaea, Mistress of Pain. Although I don't know what she would be other then a specialist like Azmodan or basically the Tomb of the Spider Queen Webweaver. So probably not her :p.

Hmm... Who else could it be from the Diablo series... maybe the Druid from D2 expansion? He's about the only one they haven't done player wise other then the assassin, and we totally DO NOT need another damn assassin in the game anyhow. Oh there is the Paladin. Who would be similar to Johanna but more about his aura buffs and debuffs like in D2 rather then a full on tank like the Crusader is. Other villains could be Mephisto. Belial hasn't been done either. Andariel would basically be Kerrigan so no need for her, but that could be a nice Diablo skin for Kerrigan. Leah would be pointless, she had no real powers shown. And she's the reason for the feminine Prime Evil version of Diablo skin. Only other one is Baal. Who looks like a slimmer version of Azmodan :p.

So other then maybe Cain, which just seems silly, Maltheal seems like a good bet in my book. Cain like Carbot's 'It'd be cool if...' would be fun and funny though :p and they do need to embrace being more silly then serious in HOTS to really stand apart from the rest of the MOBA crowd. So maybe :D

      There's currently no release date for the teased D.Va rework. It will come some time after Deathwing.
      In July, Heroes developers teased a rework to D.Va with the following changes:
      D.Va's Mech Mode will be changed to only suffer Movement Speed reduction while Basic Attacking or channeling an ability; Her Defense Matrix [W] will gain the ability to be retargeted for a short time while it's active; The Big Shot [R2] (Heroic Ability) will be baseline in Pilot Mode. D.Va will receive a new Heroic called Micro Missiles. Based on how her Ultimate work in Overwatch, we can assume that she will fire a barrage of small rockets that detonate on impact, dealing damage in a limited radius around each explosion.  Teased D.Va Rework
      Blizzard (Source)
      Based on the Developer AMA from July 2019, she can opt into a solo-laner bruiser build, a team-support front-liner build and a pretty ridiculous self-destruct/pilot build, with lots of interactions between these options. The devs also briefly outlined some changes to her abilities and talents:
      Her Mech Mode will only suffer a Movement Speed reduction while Basic Attacking or channeling an ability, not at all times. Defense Matrix can be retargeted with a short cooldown while it's active. Big Shot [R2] is now baseline in Pilot mode. D.Va has a new Heroic Ability called Micro Missiles. Her rework is coming at a later time after Deathwing and they don't have a release date set just yet.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We currently do not have a release date set for D.Va's rework, but we will let the community know as soon as we are able. ?

      Gareth from the Into the Nexus Podcast had a chance to talk to Kyle Dates and Brett "Daybringer" Crawford about Nexus Anomalies.
      Check out our BlizzCon 2019 Content Hub for more interviews and news!
      Interview Highlights
      They wanted to educate the player base at the same time Deathwing is hitting, that's why they invented Nexus Anomalies. The XP Globes improve solo laning, which has become stale over time. Nexus Anomalies, in general, is a new system that allows them to be more flexible with typical gameplay updates. The goal is to have Nexus Anomalies coming out with the Season rolls (once every three months). They want them to be focused and will listen to the community and collect feedback. They have a list of about 20 Nexus Anomalies that they want to bring to the game. One of the Anomalies they've tested internally revolves around bringing back Tower Ammo, but even after speeding things up, it took too much time for Towers to reload, which felt generally bad for the game, so they decided to scrap it. Another Anomaly thing they tried was turning wizards into sappers which is something the community's asked for a whole bunch, which delivered the globe to the enemy sometimes. They're overall happy with the cadence now that there's more breathing room in between updates. They're not developing any new Battlegrounds right now. Blackheart's Bay and Haunted Mines are still being internally tested and they still haven't figured out how to fix them. Interview VOD
