Is Kel'thuzad Coming Soon?

Recommended Posts

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...

      Mastery Rings are a new feature that was added to the game in the latest balance update. They are the successor to legacy Mastery Skins that existed back then. When you reach level 15 and 25 with a certain Hero, you will be able to purchase these augmented rings for 5,000 Gold each.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’re adding a new feature to Heroes of the Storm that will allow you to charge into battle with an extra bit of flair: introducing Mastery Rings!
      Reaching level 15 with a hero you own will unlock the ability to use gold to purchase a Mastery Ring for that hero, which will be displayed in game as an extra adornment of your hero’s regular selection circle. Additionally, when you reach level 25 with that hero you can then purchase an even more distinct Mastery Ring with gold.
      FAQ
      Q: Can I get Mastery Rings for more than one hero?
      A: You can get Mastery Rings for as many heroes as you like, given than you’ve reached at least level 15 with those heroes.
      Q: Do I purchase these rings for each Hero separately?
      A: Yes. These rings signify experience playing individual heroes and let other players know that you know how to play your chosen hero, so Mastery Rings are hero-specific.
      Q: When will Mastery Rings become available?
      A: Mastery Rings are live now!

      The latest balance patch comes with new augmented Hero Rings, purchasable for 5,000 gold each, which are equivalent to the old Mastery Skins, Hero updates, and more.
      Patch Highlights
      General
      After completing the Scarlet Heist Questline, a set of 3 new dailies will become available. To show off your individual Heroes mastery, Blizzard has implemented augmented Hero Rings for any Hero over the levels of 15 (Level 1) and 25 (Level 2) which can be purchased for 5,000 gold each. Hero Changes
      Diablo's base health has been increased and the Mana cost of Apocalypse has been reduced. Artanis' Purifier Beam speed has been increased. Some of Rexxar's talents (Easy Prey, Flare, Hunter-Gatherer) have been nerfed. Varian's Twin Blades have been nerfed and his Taunt has been buffed to incentivize Varian players to try tanking for their teams more often. Ana has been slightly buffed and they removed the awkwardness of the way Vampiric Rounds asked players to constantly target swap after 5 Shrike stacks. Deckard Cain's potions now display their impact location before they land and the radius of Fortitude of the Faithful has increased. Li Li's Hindering Winds and Surging Winds talents swapped positions. Lt. Morales has a new Medi-Drone talent which gives her limited multi-target healing. Malfurion's Entangling Roots & Innervate have been buffed. Whitemane has some new baseline mechanics. Clemency and Inquisition now remove 1 stack of Desperation, Zeal can be activated to increase Spell Power by 25% and reduce Armor by 25 for 5 seconds on a 60 second cooldown. Saintly Greatstaff has a new functionality, and Whitemane has a new talent at level 20 which can be used to grant a target ally a permanent Zeal. Qhira's Finishing Touch has been buffed to help equalize the level 1 talent tier. Junkrat's base health and regeneration have been increased and we have some follow-up changes to even out his talents (see below for details). Li Ming received survivability buffs (Health + regen). Astral Presence was removed and the functionality implemented into Force Armor. Blizzard (Source)
      Heroes of the Storm has just been updated with Hero balance changes and bug fixes! Read on for details.
      General
      The Scarlet Heist: Daily Quests Mobsters are back! After completing the Scarlet Heist quest line, a set of three new daily special event quests will be available. Using a Special Event dialog, you can choose one of those three quests and complete it for a Scarlet Heist Chest reward, once a day, until the event ends on December 3rd, 2019, PST. New Feature: Hero Mastery Rings A lot of you may remember the old 'Mastery Skins' and we are excited to bring back another way for players to show off their mastery of individual Heroes. With today's patch, players will be able to spend 5,000 gold to purchase augmented Hero Rings for any Hero over the levels of 15 (Level 1) and 25 (Level 2). These Mastery Rings are permanent when purchased and will be placed over the top of the normal Hero Ring, becoming visible to all players while in a match. We are extremely excited to know what you think about these and appreciate hearing any feedback you have on them! Heroes
