Hallow's End is coming to the Nexus with Junkrat. Earn sprays, banners and portraits until November 14, 2017!

  • Hallow's End Loot Chests have been added to the game and they will drop instead of standard Loot Chests during the event. They have a chance to contain at least one Hallow's End theme item (spray, portrait, mount etc.).
  • Old skins and mounts that were available last year are returning, including Eye Pad or Scarecrow Xul.
  • Cool skins are coming, especially for Greymane and Valeera! Some of the new Hallow's End skins were shown off in the latest in-development video.

Once Hallow’s End begins, and until it concludes during the week of November 13, you’ll pick up a  Hallow's End Loot Chest every time you level-up! These themed Loot Chests are only available during the event, and now guarantee at least one of the limited-time items from that event—including portraits, sprays, skins, and mounts.

Weekly Brawl rewards earned after October 20 will also award one Hallow’s End Chest, and you can head to the Loot tab in-game to purchase Rare Hallow’s End Chests directly using gems. Finally, please note that any Loot Chests you already own prior to the start of the event will not convert to Hallow’s End Chests.

Spooktacular New Skins, Mounts, and Bundles!

You’ll find a pair of chilling new bundles, along with a new legendary skin for Greymane, an epic skin for Valeera, rare skins for Brightwing, Chromie, Cho’gall, Gazlowe, and Murky, and several new mounts haunting the Nexus this Hallow’s End.

The bundles can be purchased using gems, while skins and mounts can be forged using shards, or opened in Hallow’s End Loot Chests. Brand new items that arrived with this event will remain at their initial shard prices for the duration of the event, while returning items from past Hallow’s End events have been adjusted down.

You won’t be able to pick up the bundles or forge event items after November 14, so be sure to snatch these goodies before they creep away!

      Rules:
      Choose from one of three randomly selected Heroes before entering the Arena. Be quick about it though, you only have 30 seconds to choose! Everyone will begin the round at level 10 and will be asked to choose a Heroic Ability. No other talents will be available. During each round, slay the enemy team’s Heroes and capture the Temple Shrines to take shots at their Core!

Be the first team to win 2 rounds and claim victory! Rewards:
      Complete three matches of the Temple Arena to earn a Loot Chest!

      Experience changes that were planned as part of the 2019 gameplay update are a huge miss on PTR, because the incentives for taking structures are mostly gone. Community Manager Dylan Bates informed the community that the team's making revisions to the experience updates and while they don't have any specifics to share at the moment, we will see a different iteration go live next week.  
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hello Heroes -
      We wanted to take a moment to address some of the concerns from our community about the experience updates on PTR this week. As with all of our balance changes, the Heroes team spends months internally playtesting and iterating before bringing these changes to PTR for further feedback from our players. Now that PTR is live, our team has been hard at work monitoring the new 2019 experience updates and listening to feedback. Based on this feedback and data, the team is currently exploring making some revisions to the 2019 experience updates to include more incentives for taking Forts and Keeps. We are currently iterating on these changes internally and plan to release an update to the 2019 experience changes in next week’s patch. While we don’t have additional information to share about these changes just yet, know that we are listening and that your feedback is incredibly valuable.
      Thank you to everyone who took the time to try out these changes on the PTR and provided feedback. Keep an eye out for more information next week.
