Is Kel'thuzad Coming Soon?

Stukov and now Garrosh. But who's the next Hero to join the Nexus after them?

Gamescom 2017 is just few days away and it would be an ideal time to speculate about the next Hero reveal. Who would be better than Kel'thuzad?

The most recent reddit thread of leaked Heroes published after Stukov was teased has the following Heroes listed:

  • Stukov (Starcraft)
  • Garrosh (Warcraft)
  • Kel'thuzad (Warcraft) - Assassin
  • Firebat (Starcraft)
  • Anna (Overwatch) - Support
  • Junkrat (Overwatch)

So far it's pretty accurate and it might have been published by Axolotl under a different name. Blizzard also released a work-in-progress model for Kel'thuzad back in 2015.

According to the post, devs also have plans for Alexstrasza, but there's no mention if she's going to be a Hero or part of a Warcraft event (map objective) coming to Heroes of the Storm.

Warcraft Event? Well, we had two Diablo III maps and a Diablo Event, two Starcraft maps and a Starcraft Event, Hanamura and two Overwatch Heroes and that's why I think a Warcraft Event (Hero + battleground) is planned in the near future.

Which Warcraft-themed map would you like to play? Let us know in the comments!

Not clickbait; it's information. Progress info even.

 

On the side of things; I don't really see how Ana***** could work in HoTs; like would her auto attack heal allies? It seems a bit over powered :O  The grenade would be interesting though; there aren't many effects to boost/inhibit healing as of now ;-;

Probably a skillshot heal; I can see it as combination of Nova' Snipe and Uther's Holy Radiance.

On a side note, her taunt HAS to be "Tea Time".

Anna would have somewhat slow autoattack, but with the advantage of being able to target allies then heal them for that much ammount.

Then sleepdart (skillshot that stuns for quite some time unless damaged), biotic grenade (as we know it in overwatch), and maybe something like "focus aim" for dealing more damage/heal more with an autoattack.

And as ults nano-boost, of course. And... maybe something that blinds enemies around her?

How about everyone's favorite zone? Vashj'ir, OF COURSE. A map that is 3 times larger than the normal maps and everyone swims, moving at 60% reduced speed. Funtimes!

Now, seriously, I think Caverns of Time would be pretty cool. With a mechanic where you enter portals and visit other places to complete specific objectives.

Or maybe a map modelled after PvP Battlegrounds, like Warsong Gulch.

I think a Warsong Gulch map would be interesting; indoor areas similar to the mines for each opposing side's flag room and tunnel, with temporary buffs for healing, movement and damage around to precipitate flag carrying and returns, if they decide to go with that particular mechanic; after Hanamura, I hope they really think more carefully about adding such features to a MOBA environment. 

I loved the battlegrounds, especially during my TBC days. At least there can't be as many glitches like hiding behind the walls or capping an extra base in Battle for Gilneas...

I'd love more Diablo characters, like Leah or Deckard Cain. That's not to say I am not excited about the upcoming characters, though I am not as hyped about KT as most people seem to be.

But where the cars from Rock n Roll Racing at?

really want to hear some more Diablo announcers, regardless of the next new hero. Garrosh gets an announcer at launch and existing ones get new lines, but come onnnnnnn where's Leoric and Tyrael at?

Morales already has her ult, also I think the sleeping dart may be overpowered if it'd work as in Overwatch, semi-stunning them when put to sleep and woken up.

I don't see any reason to add Leah at all. There is nothing special about her. Deckard Cain is a different story. I also wanna see Mephisto and Baal, to pay homage to Diablo 2 and finally reunite the Prime Evils.

Aside from the Diablo characters, I really wanna see Blackthorne and Emperor Tomator added.

I still can't understand why they haven't given us announcers for all characters. I need The Lost Vikings announcer!

Not at all. Morales' Stim Drone boosts Attack Speed and Movement Speed. Ana's Nano Boosts gives increased damage and damage reduction. If anything, combo'ing the two Heroics would break the game.

That's the scariest Illi/Butch ever! (Good thing those are my 2 favorites as of right now :P)

Ana is really easy to make in Hots

Give her Nova's Q that heal ally or deal damage based on what hits

Sleep is just a stun that get broken when you get hit, with a maximum duration of Anub cocoon.

Grenade is just an AOE with same effect of the original

For the R is like Morales one but give different effect Damage and Resistance insted of the Attack and Move Speed of the medic.

For the R2 they can give some damage alternative like lucio

I designed better Ana in 2 minutes than that guy that made Garrosh E ...facepalm random target ability that can target minions  :|

YES! Blackthorne please! Sure he'd probably feel like a combination of Raynor and Tychus, but he's too much of a badass NOT to have him in the game damn it! :p :) Why is he not already in it?!

Honestly I don't understand why everyone have always longed so much for Kel'thuzad. I mean sure his cool and all, but he was mentioned on so many hero spotlight comment sections and generally everywhere.

I for one want another hero like Abathur, perhaps C'thun who whispers and corrupts allies and enemies from a distance... mmmh, yes...

      Our twenty-fourth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier list for the month of January is here!
      Welcome to Icy Veins's most belated Meta Tier List for the January 8 patch. The goal of this list is to try and detail game's current metagame state. The prime goal of such lists is to inform players regarding popular and trending team composition drafting strategies (i.e. the drafting metagame).
      Using the list
       
      Current ranked mode map rotation
       
      Meta picks
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer Anub'arak↑↑ — — — — — — — Diablo (ban)↑               Garrosh (ban)↑                
      High-tier generalists
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer E.T.C. (ban) Artanis↑ Varian(ban) Genji (ban)↓ Raynor (ban) Jaina — Ana Mal'Ganis (ban)↓     Zeratul   Kael'thas   Malfurion               Tyrande↓  
      Mid-tier generalists
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer Arthas Dehaka (ban) Alarak Tracer (ban) Cassia↓  Azmodan Abathur Alexstrasza Blaze Imperius (new) Kerrigan   Falstad↑ Gul'dan Zarya Auriel Johanna Sonya↓ Maiev   Fenix↓ Junkrat   Brightwing Muradin Yrel Malthael   Greymane Kel'Thuzad    Kharazim Stitches (ban)   Ragnaros   Hanzo (ban) Li-Ming-   Li Li Varian   Thrall   Lunara Mephisto   Lt.

      Meta heroes define the metagame. They are very often banned or picked right away, as they generally dictate the pace of most drafts and matches.
      Generalists form the core of your team and are generally picked after Meta picks have been distributed. They tend to work on most maps, and as part of and against most team compositions. Since this group includes most heroes, I elected to split it into three tiers. High-tier rankings are a result of performance (i.e. win rates) and popularity (i.e. pick and ban rates). This means that heroes with high win rates can be set in low tier; the opposite may also be true.
      Situational picks shine on specific maps or as part of specific team compositions.
      Our Meta Tier List has been updated for the January patch!
