Winter Veil 2017 Skins

31 posts in this topic

Winter Veil will be very similar to Hallow's End in terms of functionality. During the event, Winter Veil Loot Chests will drop and they have a chance to contain new and old Winter Veil skins. This year, Blizzard added new skins for Kharazim, Malfurion, Malthael and Valla and the Gingerboard mount!

It seems that all skins have 5 different tints. A special thanks goes to the Heroes of the Storm reddit community and especially redditor iolixir for most of the screenshots.

Redditor Davesendave posted all new skins on reddit. Some Heroes are getting new tints for their old skins.

Let us hope that none of these skins and mounts will be "Gem exclusive content", even though they're adding special event chests.

The Kharazim skin looks a bit lazy. They just slapped him with the Santa hood and boots.

Oh my gods the Valla skin <3 <3 <3. Valla was already so very hot, but an elf Valla?!

 I love you, Valla. Be my sexy elf for Christmas? *Valla says 'Sure!'* :o <3 :D Wait... don't tell my lady, Tyrande, about our affair. :p

Am I the only one who hates all these event skins? lol I can't get normal loot chests... and the skins I was really aiming for. Chances for some Dreadlord Jaina skin? nope, I'll get some wonky Malthael wielding candybars in place of his shotels.

And why in the hell is Valla an elf all out of a sudden? I mean, why not giving that skin to a REAL elf, like Tyrande or something? Hurrdurr.

OH MY GODS! I just realized something while seeing the name Plum Winter's Helper Valla skin. Since they bring back 'classic' skins for seasonal events, that most likely the Sugarplum Fairy Sylvanis skin will be able to be forged or got in boxes during the event!!! YES!!!! I SO love that skin! Gotta save up those shards now. Wait... Everyone loves that skin too... Damn it! It will likely be a 'legendary' 1600 shard one. >:(  I never save up enough for those or are really willing to spend 1600 on just one skin variant to begin with ...well fingers crossed that it will only be a 400 shard one.

Sugarplum Fairy Sylvanas and Great-father Winter Rehgar are two classic skins I want so damn much.

Again we get showered with a ton of useless stuff and most simple recolor of skins. I will keep playing heroes close to level up and leveling them when winter veil is over.

New portraits.

Yay! :D Thanks for posting those up here, Valhalen. I always like seeing all the new portrait art that they put out for events and such. Some of the sprays I would prefer to have as portraits too. Sprays are mostly useless, but I do enjoy having a pretty selection of portraits to use :D. Plus it's fun to see the cartoon animation versions of the characters. It makes you think of how they would look if Blizzard ever did Heroes animated 30min holiday specials :p :D. Now wouldn't that be amazing! <3

Well at least we almost always get little couple minute Carbot Animation holiday episodes <3 :D

 

PS to Valhalen; So here's your buddies Major Glory & The Infraggable Krunk these days? :p

Because Santa's helpers are elves. It's not much of a stretch, honestly.

I know Santa's helpers are elves. That was not my question.

I kinda agree with the scrooges here that don't like the seasonal boxes- I kinda wish you could opt out if you don't want the seasonal skins, which are often pretty questionable in terms of year-round desirability.

 

That said, I this this year has a couple of good entries for those that like holiday themed skins... malfurion and valla being the standouts this year imo. Gingerboard also looks nice, looking forward to equipping one w/ gingerbread nazeebo.

 

re: gem-only options, I would honestly be fine with that in this context. none of the holiday things are must-haves for me, and I recognize that they're having trouble monetizing HotS. I mostly only had beef with the "we're doing you a favor" attitude they used in the announcement.

He means why they chose Valla as a Santa Helper instead of already existing elves that are in the game, like Tyrande or even Kael'thas (would be awesome to see him as a Santa Helper, with the Verdant Spheres being giftboxes).

But to be fair would make more sense to have Tyrande as Ms. Claus, to pair with Malfurion's Santa skin.

But those events last less than a month. And their contents are limited-timed-offers.

If you spent the whole year trying to get that Bucaneer Falstad skin, it's not now that you'll get it.

And many times I've managed to get non-seasonal Legendaries from Seasonal Loot Boxes (which angered me deeply, because no, I don't need another Tassadar).

I COMPLETELY agree with that, Val. Every damn legendary I got out of the Hallow's End chests were something other then Halloween skins. Hell most of the skins I got in-general from Hallow's End chests weren't event skins. You're only guaranteed that ONE of the four items in the chest will be from the event. Usually it was a stupid spray or a portrait I got as that one. Pissed me off SO much when it was a Legendary. I wanted that damn Spectral Stallion mount so badly. Why didn't they just give me the option to buy the damn thing outright >:( ...but noooooo it's either 2400 shards, get lucky in a loot chest or go f*ck yourself. Such bullshit >:(

Thank you sir! Yeah, there are several elven characters in this game (Tyrande, Kael'thas, Valeera, Sylvanas was also an elf in her former life anyway), so it baffles me that they chose Valla, a Nephalem, to portrait her as one of Santa's elven helpers.

Yeah, really grinds my gears. But Valla, alongside Li Ming and Tracer, are apparently favorites of the devs, with 129041820412 skins while other characters (looking at you, poor Lost Vikings) have less than 10.

Speaking of them, why didn't they get a Santa Claus skin? WHY?

Oh my gods, I didn't even think of that. You're so right! Lost Vikings would have been PERFECT for a skin to make them into a group of little worker elves. Keebler Elves with Olaf eating cookies :p

I suspect they go with fan favorite characters for new skins more often if they have multiple characters that can fit a skin idea. Also the sexy lady skimpy outfit skins are probably big sellers

      The first ranked season of 2018 starts during the week of December 12 and there's a new set of rewards that you can earn by playing ranked games in the coming months.
      With that said, Hanzo should go live on December 12 as well.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Season Roll Dates
      2018 Season 1 will begin as soon as our next patch is available for download in each region throughout next week. Check the start and end dates below and make sure you’re able to dive into the rankings as soon as the season rolls.
      EVENT DATE 2018 Season 1 Start Week of December 12, 2017* 2018 Season 1 End Week of March 6, 2018* *Exact date may vary slightly by region.
      Ranked Play Updates
      Along with the start of 2018 Ranked Season 1, we’re introducing performance-based matchmaking to all matchmaking modes in Heroes of the Storm.
      Performance-based matchmaking will help our system better evaluate individual players' in-game performance during a match, and adjust how much their rank and matchmaking ratings (MMR) increase or decrease at the end of that game. If players perform beyond expectations for their current MMR, the system will award more when they win, and subtract less when they lose. As a result, players will reach ratings that accurately match their skill level more quickly than they did in our previous system.
      There's more to the matchmaking improvements we're introducing, such as how the system differentiates highly-skilled play from one hero to the next. Be sure to read our in-depth blog on performance-based matchmaking to catch all the details before you jump into ranked play—or any matchmaking mode—next season.
      2018 Season 1 Rewards
