Winter Veil 2017 Skins

Recommended Posts

qIXPHaU.jpg

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 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

      In Storm League, rank is always updated by taking the change in rating and determining the equivalent number of rank points to reward. While the Heroes team is quite happy with how it turned out, the system is causing problems in Bronze 5.
      In Bronze 5, players gain/lose far fewer points per game than players in other leagues and divisions. The underlying problem makes it harder to climb out of Bronze 5 and causes frustration and bad gameplay experience. The team is working on ways to improve it and provided an explanation of why this is happening.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With the launch of Storm League season 1 we have seen a dramatic improvement in rank distribution. One of the primary changes in this release was in how rank is determined. In the past, rank and rating were two entirely different concepts, both of which were updated differently after each game. It was very common for a player's rank and rating to diverge throughout each season which could cause the matchmaking system to struggle to find games.
      With the changes introduced this season, rank is always updated by taking the change in rating and determining the equivalent number of rank points to reward. This leaves very few ways rating and rank can diverge and results in most players being shown a number equivalent to their rating.
      Overall, we are very happy with how the changes are looking; however, we are aware of the inconsistencies players are currently experiencing in Bronze 5. With the new design, players in Bronze 5 will gain/lose far fewer points per game than players in all of the other leagues and divisions. The reason for this is a bit technical but we wanted to take the opportunity to elaborate on what's going on.
      Under the hood, matchmaking rating is simply a number on a bell curve. Every league and division encompasses a range of values on the same curve. For example, if the overall bell curve ranges from -10.0 to 10.0 and the range 1.0 to 1.5 maps to Gold 1, then a player with a rating of 1.25 will have the equivalent rank of Gold 1 & 500/1000 points. These numbers are intentionally made up as the real ones are always subject to change but the idea is the same.
      The reason for the decrease in points awarded in Bronze 5 is that the range of ratings that maps to Bronze 5 is much larger than other divisions. The difference is that this much larger range of ratings still maps to the same number of rank points. As a result, despite being rewarded the same change in matchmaking rating, the rank points awarded may be lower. This is visualized by the graph below:
      We understand that this inconsistency is a negative experience for players so we will be exploring some ways to improve it.
      Thanks for participating in Storm League and providing your feedback!

      Blizzard fixed the Loot Chest display issue and Qhira's Fatal Wounds no longer cause Blood Rage to deal bonus damage to enemies with less than 5 stacks.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’ve just released a Heroes of the Storm patch in order to address a few live bugs. Read on for details.
      Bug Fixes
      Heroes
      Qhira Fatal Wounds no longer causes Blood Rage to deal bonus damage to enemies that have less than 5 stacks. Fatal Wounds no longer causes the activated portion of Blood Rage to deal bonus damage. User Interface
      Ranked: Post-game point breakdown animation now properly counts up or down. Season names now properly display in order on the Profile. Fixed an issue where Blizzard Checkout could fail to load when purchasing Gems. The Loot Chest award animation no longer improperly displays two Loot Chests granted when a Hero Levels and a quest is completed within the same game.
    • By Stan
      Heroes of the Storm is currently experiencing an issue with Loot Chests. The display issue causes players to see more Loot Chests than they were supposed to receive, but it's important to note that you're not missing Loot Chests because this is just a purely cosmetic bug that does not affect the total number of acquired Loot Chests.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hey everyone!
      We’ve gotten a lot of reports regarding Loot Chests and I wanted to take a moment to respond here. We are currently aware of a display issue that is causing the Loot Chest popup to show that you were granted more chests than you were supposed to receive. It is important to note - you are not missing a Loot Chest, this is purely a display issue and does not impact the total number of Loot Chests you receive.
      Since we introduced Loot Chests and our new Progression system in Heroes 2.0, leveling up a Hero will grant different types of Loot Chests with increasing rarity depending on your player level. For each level hit, players will earn 1 Common Loot Chest, every 5 levels will then grant a Rare Loot Chest, and every 25 levels will finally unlock an Epic Loot Chest. For every 10 levels you earn for a specific Hero you will earn a Hero Specific Loot Chest for that Hero. With the exception of Special Events, Hero Specific Chests are one of the only ways to get more than 1 Loot Chest per level.
      With the information above, if you are seeing the wrong type of chest awarded, or a Hero Specific Chest not being granted, this would be a different issue than the display issue mentioned above. Please make a post on our Forums and we can investigate these reports further. Before posting please make sure to provide the following information:
      Make sure to check the Loot tab. If you have more than three types of Loot Chests, use the arrows to turn the carousel and confirm the chest is missing. Please include the Account Level, the Hero you leveled, and what level the Hero got. Thank you so much for your help!
