New Twitter Teaser: Jan 14

Recommended Posts

BouHFoO.jpg

Blizzard released a new teaser image over on Twitter earlier today. According to the latest in-development video, new "Mecha" skins are currently in the works for Abathur, Rehgar and Tyrael...but is that it?

Folks over on reddit started speculating that the teaser isn't only related to upcoming skins. The text mentions "Neo Stormwind". Do you think a Warcraft-themed Battleground is coming next?  We'll need to wait for more teasers to find out! Based on the most recent leaks, we should see Mal'Ganis and Belial fairly soon.

Placeholder for tweet 952601211861065730

The following skins will be available to Rehgar, Tyrael and Abathur soon:

Neo Stormwind ? Sounds more like some Brawl map that would feature every Mecha-themed skins in the game to me.

If a real Warcraft map had to be added alongside Mal'Ganis, something based on the Culling of Stratholme would be perfect and would make a reason as why Mal'Ganis and not another Dreadlord. But then again, Mal'Ganis is not confirmed.

On a side note, I hope those Mech Skins kept the skin-specific mount feature like Mecha Tassadar.

Well, Tyrael can float kind of like how Alarak does. Rehgar has a Mecha Wolf Z. Aba can't mount, I don't remember whether or not his tunnel is mech-themed.

Taking a wild guess I'd say they will release a 2D animation plus a special event with new sprays, banners and shit, akin to the "Call of Kel'Thuzad" event. I highly doubt they would add a new map so soon; plus if they were to add a Warcraft map, would be the classic setting instead of this alternate futuristic universe. BUT I could be wrong. Let's not forget that this Mechas VS Kaijos setting is not limited to Warcraft, since Tyrael, Diablo and Abathur also have their related skins.

Those pics obviously depict a huge mecha base like the Shatterdomes in Pacific Rim or whatever.

OPERATION METEOR IS ABOUT TO BEGIN

Oh, they do. Mecha Tyrael's mounted mode is kinda weak however, it's just him in prone position with rocket thrusters on his back.

disappointing for me because I expected it to look like Zeta Gundam's Waverider mode.

This is clearly a Neon Genesis Evangelion inspired theme. I love the multiple references on so many heroes like Genji Neon skin, Artanis Purifier Test and Crimson skin, and alike. The new Rehgar skin hearths just like the Evangelion arise on battlefield.

"GET IN THE FUCKIN' MECHA, REHGAR!"

Also, even Probius has a EVA-01 recolor. And one of D.Va's default skin recolors makes her suit red just like Asuka's.

And another teaser revealed. Accordingly to a dude in Twitter, it translates as: "Neo Stormwind News: Breaking news! Unconfirmed new Mecha enters the battle!"

If that isn't Mecha Tyrael, then I'll eat my loot chest.

      Design-wise, Deathwing is probably the craziest Hero added to the game since the introduction of Cho'gall, and in this post, we're going through the main highlights of the reveal stream.
      Deathwing Reveal Highlights
      Deathwing is going to be in his dragon form the whole game and has no human form. He's even bigger than Alexstrasza. All of his abilities have delays. Although he has a lot of Health, Deathwing is classified as a Bruiser. The Hero will be playable at BlizzCon and go live in December. His trait is called The Aspect of Death and comes with four perks. Deathwing deals 100% bonus damage to enemy Heroes (similar to Alarak). He is permanently Unstoppable. Deathwing is completely unaffected by Allied abilities. You can't do anything to interact with him (no healing, Abathur hatting, NOTHING). He's going to play his own game. He has adamantium plates and starts the game with 40 Armor. Every 25% Health he will lose a plate which takes away 10 Armor. It's the direct opposite of Garrosh who gets tankier as he's close to dying. Deathwing has a custom mount. He leaves the map completely and restores Health over time, which is his primary way of getting back health that he lost while he was on the ground. This is also the only way for him to regain armor plates, as picking up globes will not restore his armor plates. After you land, your abilities will have a short cooldown. He can land anywhere on the map that he has vision and when he lands pick one of two different forms: The Destroyer form / The Worldbreaker form which change his base kit. He can swap between his forms by activating his trait (Thanks @Valhalen The Destroyer form focuses on melee while the Worldbreaker form revolves around ranged attacks. Destroyer Form Abilities
      [Q] Molten Flame is the highest damage-dealing ability in the game. Deathwing shoots a giant flame breath in front of him as you'd expect from a dragon.

      [W] Incinierate is a close-range (circle AoE) ability. After a short delay, he releases a pulse of flame with a flap of his wings.

      [E] Onslaught allows Deathwing to lunge forward a small distance. Any Heroes hit will be Slowed and at the end of the charge, he's going to bite the enemy for extra damage.

      Worldbreaker Form Abilities
      This is the Deathwing from the Cataclysm cinematic.
      [Q] Molten Flame is the same as in his other form and makes him shoot a giant flame breath.

      [W] Lava Burst: Deathwing makes slaps his paw into the ground which creates a small circular lava pool in an area around him. It has a significant Slow attached which allows him to set up his [Q] Flame Breath.

      [E] Earthshatter: Deathwing rears up and slams his paws into the ground and these little V-shaped skillshots go out that Stun all enemies hit as the ground rumbles. 

      Heroic Ability
      Deathwing just has one Heroic ability, but it's available from the start of the game.
      [R] Cataclysm: Deathwing flies in the sky, flies over the whole area burning everyone underneath his wings, scorching the ground for several seconds. He lands at the end of the path. It's a flying Lava Wave. The Level 10 upgrade makes it deal more damage and Cataclysm's cooldown is reset when an Enemy Fort/Keep is destroyed.

      Talents
      At Level 10, he can alternatively pick an ability called [1] Bellowing Roar which Fears everyone around him.
      At Level 20, he gets another [R] Cataclysm upgrade which further reduces its cooldown. His other talent is called Rival of a God which allows him to Stun when he lands from the sky. It also gives him access to all Level 7 talents which affect his mount ability, like meteors while landing.

      Check out Deathwing's kit and see him in action.

      Deathwing has been officially confirmed and here's the reveal trailer of the Worldbreaker.
      Blizzard (Source)
      You’ve felt the tremors of his approach; now prepare for the unmaking of your world as Deathwing descends upon the Nexus. Not content to lay waste to World of Warcraft and Hearthstone, The Worldbreaker has set his sights on the realms of the Nexus to spread his reign of death and destruction. The Hour of Twilight falls, mortals. Bow before The Destroyer, or burn beneath the shadow of his wings!
    • By Stan
      Deathwing has been accidentally leaked as the next Hero to join the Nexus. The reveal starts at 10:30 AM PDT on Twitch. Hero Designer Kyle Dates and Live Game Designer Adam Jackson will sit down with Trikslyr and Jhow to show off the first gameplay of the Worldbreaker.

      The introduction of Deathwing, especially now with BlizzCon around the corner, makes you wonder what they have in store for Heroes of the Storm at the event.
