New Hero Teaser: Mar 14

Recommended Posts

36214-new-hero-to-be-unveiled-next-week.

The latest roundup of Hero speculations based on the StarCraft anniversary tweet.

Blizzard tweeted about the StarCraft anniversary earlier today.

Placeholder for tweet 973974552555307008

Redditor Keatrock created a thread about the upcoming Hero and the Heroes of the Storm community has been fervently discussing the latest addition to the Nexus. Subsourian pointed out a Heroes of the Storm Facebook page comment that confirms a hint in the teaser and Blizzard's plans to celebrate the StarCraft anniversary with a real Hero.

The vast majority thinks it's Fenix, but the background in the teaser depicts the door to the Spear of Adun according to redditor dave7882. The door can be seen at around 1:03 in the video below. The Hero standing next to Artanis is Karax.

Aldaris, Rohana and Selendis were also mentioned by some community members. Stay tuned for more information!

i hope it be something that worths 2months of waiting....I'm just so mad about this..you know,we just can get 12heroes per year if they normally add 1 per month and when I think about how many popular heroes from all universes still aren't in nexus,it gets worse..

Completely new hero: The reworked Raynor!

Which I would prefer over a new hero I can't afford anyway. A reworked Raynor is basically a free new hero to use and play around with.

Well, Karax deserves to be  a HOTS champ, but Fenix would be more consistent with the 20th anniversary and his story is definetly more epic !

What would karax do? Probius already warps in photon cannons and Artanis has the spear of adun call downs. 

 

I get the feeling they don't  want more multi class heroes, but i still think fenix would be prefect for that. He has his 3 power suits. A tank,  a ranged damage dealer, and a support.  No health or mana regen for your active suit gets rid of the situation where everyone picks one because it is the strongest. 

The leaked han and horner idea sounds cool too, but I'd rather have a multi mech protoss.

Well, as they can make any unit into a hero we might see a Colossus.

But i would like Selendis or maybe Vorazun, a different version of Zeratul as they agenda r different anyway.

I think Fenix makes the most sense for this. He's a hero from the original game and sacrificed himself to save other protoss only to wind up in a dragoon. I think we'll have him in his dragoon as either a ranged assassin or a specialist.

I was expecting the next Hero to be Deckard Cain, based on that datamining.

I wonder, if it is really Fenix, if they will make him a Multiclass, as in the SC2 Co-Op missions he can alternate between 3 forms: Praetor (Warrior), Solarite Dragoon (Assassin) and Cybros Arbiter (Support / Specialist).

Would be nice if it was the case, because we haven't see a new Multiclass since Varian.

I think the clue is one of two ways: either the sign of Protos means Fenix (hopefully not Karax just because he's not as unique) or it being a ship is a distraction for the dual heroes (both pilots) to be released.

Hoping for Fenix, I'd love another bruiser assassin.

FENIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIX

It's the perfect alignment for him. SC celebration, he's a classic. iconic character, fan favorite and requested by many (Blizz acknowledged so themselves). And tbh, only he fits the 'real Hero' description, the others not that much. Per Aldaris words ".. he lived and died as a Templar; he has reached the Khala's end. There's no greater glory than that." He also earned the honorific Steward of the Templar. If you ask me, he's worthy of "En Taro Fenix". If he doesn't come now, I don't think he ever will... or they'll bring him as a skin for Artanis which would make me helluva mad even if it's the bestest skin ever released in a moba (cough hots is a hero brawler not a moba cough). Kaldalis would fit too imho and I'd really love him as well, but I want Fenix so bad. Selendis was very interesting of a character, when I first saw her in WoL (female High Executor, new rank) but they wasted her in LotV which put me off.

I'd like to see both Deckard Cain and Selendis anytime, but I think Fenix would be the one being teased here :P

He has been really requested through HotS from its launching, and as SteveFrost says, there's not a better time than this 20y anniversary Xd

Ofc, I'm expecting many other heroes after him! Now it seems to be his time hehe

I agree to that, there are many people missing who shouldn't be, but I'd prefer them to be delayed if they're to be well worked and developed, resonant as characters and good, defining kits instead of rushed and bad (Jimmy and Kerrigan come to mind, not for good reasons)
