New Hero: Maiev

Maiev, The Warden, is an elusive and deadly new Assassin Hero who will stop at nothing to chase down and lock away any who would stand against her in the Nexus. Maiev is preparing to join Heroes of the Storm with next week’s patch. She’s bringing along a number of new skins, as well as a new Heroic Bundle, which is available until February 19 and includes all five of her Epic launch skins. Be sure to stop by Maiev's Hero Page to learn about her abilities and playstyle.

Lunar Festival 2018!

In the Nexus, Lunar Festival marks a time to reflect on lessons learned from battles won and lost, and cherish the fun you’ve had queuing up with friends or family. It’s also a great time to plan out your conquests for the new year and pick up some sweet new loot!

Join us in celebrating Lunar Festival 2018 from the week of Tuesday, February 6, until Monday, March 5! During the event, you’ll unlock new lunar goodies by completing a four-part quest chain, race against the clock—and other players—to complete the free-for-all Lunar Festival Brawl, and earn ornate Lunar Festival Loot Chests just by playing Heroes of the Storm.

Head to our Lunar Festival 2018 mini-site for more event details, and be sure to take a look at all of the new skins, mounts, bundles, emojis, sprays, and portraits we’ve shared below.

New Lunar Skins

Many Heroes are joining in the revelry and donning their finest fineries during this year’s Lunar Festival event, including Kael’thas, Sylvanas, Cassia, and Zul’jin. Additionally, items from past years, such as Lunar Illidan, Jaina, Li-Ming, and others have returned to the Nexus! We’ve added new variations for some of these skins to the game, as well as a ton of new mounts, emojis, portraits, and sprays.

You can add these event items to your collection by forging them with shards, or opening them in limited-time Lunar Festival 2018 Loot Chests. New items will remain at their initial shard prices for the duration of the event, while returning items from past Lunar Festivals have been adjusted down. You won’t be able to pick up the bundles or forge event items after March 5, so be sure to snag some new loot before it's gone!

The Lunar Festival 2018 Bundle contains some of the newest skins and mounts, while the Lunar Festival Classic Bundle features items from previous events. Both bundles can be purchased using gems for the duration of the event.

I really like the Cassia skin. But why does ingame Kael have to be so much uglier than his really amazing artwork?? I am really looking forward to some Mario... Storm... Kart :-)

The Zul'jin skin is SICK.

*You walk through the streets at night, knowing you are being followed. You hear the skitter of footsteps. They come from every direction and no direction at all.  A masked troll appears from the dark... "Zul'jin neva lose..."*

Finally a new skin for Zuljin! It's actually pretty sick looking too.

I know, right? I've been waiting for a new Zul'jin skin for ages! 

As a Zul'jin main, I'm really happy

Scrolling down to the comments to make a regard about Zul'Jin's new skin being awesome, but it seems that was unnecessary.

You can never speak about that skin too much.

But being repetitive in complementing it could be seen as mocking it.

Not at all. That skin is truly majestic. I've been wanting a new skin for Zul'jin for a very long time, and this one exceeded my expectations.

You do know that skins actually give passive buffs, right? Ever since I got the Archangel Diablo and Death Knight Sonya skins I've been playing 50% better with those characters.

Only 50%? You must be using discount skins. My performance has doubled, at least. I'm basically Grand Master since I started using skins.

I meant to write "at least 50%", but I forgot. Hahaha.

I hope Blizzard expands the Loadout Capacity in the future, because we got too many cool skins and only 3 Loadouts. =(

I'd love to be able to select certain skins and then have a random selection pop up. There are multiple skins I love for Li-Ming, for example, and would love to have a random one picked from those I like.

Skins universally make you tryhard, tryhard makes you play better, playing better brings more wins. SCIENCE!

This is why my Skin/Mount combo must always be completely and utterly on point. Not matching = Not acceptable.

That's one of those things where it's so mismatched, that it loops around past being awful, to being good again.

I don't think Blaze actually...burns. Like, he has flammable gas or liquid stored there and when someone needs a light, he helps out, teehee. The one who's more like "FLAME ON!" is Ragnaros- who makes a legit question for that. Maybe the mount is protected by magic somehow? I guess it belongs in the same category of questions as how the surfboard mount can move with Jaina/Arthas/Kel'thuzad on it-why does the water not freeze? And how can Illidan be blinded, he's already blind ECKS DEE

The cosmetics are neat, but I'm really disappointed with the "event" part of it; oh look a play roughly 20 matches and a eh brawl! I miss last year's thing.. it was so fun doing a phsodo scavenger hunt! But.. rip..
