Deckard Cain Hero Reveal at PAX East 2018

Recommended Posts

So...old man who can barely move.     To be fair he's survived Tristram, which is more than, well, anyone can say.

I figure he HAS to be a support (Deckard Kain the Bruiser/Assassin?) XD

So once again the 4chan stuff about Imperius was wrong.

At this point, I take it 50-50. They were right about Hanzo, Alexstrasza and Blaze

Doesn't have to be, they can change order as they wish. Starcraft franchise recently had anniversary, so I'm certain they changed Fenix's priority.
I view it as what will come, eventually.

Development issues with creating a character, QA reworks, ability debugging, any of this could change the release order. Or maybe they snoop 4chan too and just want to mess with people since they can't stop all leaks 100%

Except Starcraft's anniversary wasn't a surprise to anyone at Blizzard. They weren't sitting around with a bunch of heroes and a few weeks ago it dawned on them that they have starcraft's anniversary coming up. They probably knew for a long time that they wanted to do something for the anniversary and slotted fenix accordingly

"No Stitches, you fell into the toxic sli..... magic cauldron as a baby and you can't have any." - Deckard Cain 

I really really hope this is his interaction with Stitches.

I couldn't be more hyped for Cain. I've been waiting for him ever since the release of this game. And Blizzard overdid themselves; his kit looks absurdly fun to use.

This is the first new hero I've been excited about for awhile now. Cain looks suuuuuuuper fun, and Diablo is probably my favorite Blizzard franchise. I love everything about his skillset (Stay Awhile and Listen ult is fucking brilliant).

Is this the April's Fool character? When I saw some of his abilities that's all I could think of. The Horadric Cube just being a slow is pretty lame. Hopefully the gems are interesting.

April Fools was four days ago, what is Blizzard's schedule?

Otherwise, I think this my new main. Time to start practicing my Diablo lore and vocal cords.

There are many big names missing; Khadgar, Cairne Bloodhoof, Tirion Fordring, Mengsk (Valerian prolly), Warfield, Tosh from the top of my head and I've seen others heavily requested as well.

Personally, I'd really love to see Kaldalis; learning that he's that last surviving Zealot from LotV opening cinematic + that Reclamation video got me right in the feels

I also LOVE that they made a blend between his Diablo II (the blue cloak and white beard) and Diablo III (the overall posture, using a staff and carrying that shitload of scrolls on his back) incarnations. They really showed a lot of love in crafting him for this game.

I haven't been hyped for a Hero since Stukov. Good lord, I can't wait to play him. I think I'll even download the PTR this time.

      Deathwing will be nerfed in a future balance patch. We're looking at more general nerfs across the board, mainly to Destroyer form, overall talent tuning, and some World Breaker buffs.

      Hey Calcaz!
      We get enough data, even with a massive ban rate. Of course, as more data comes in we’re more confident with where things sit, but we have always had enough data to make educated changes before the first balance patch after a new hero release. After the first balance patch, we always have an even more clear picture of where things stand since we have that much more time for data to come in.
      Balance patch is looking good!
      For Deathwing, more general nerfs across the board, particularly to Destroyer form. Also some World Breaker buffs and talent tuning.
      Can’t confirm dates. Confirming dates is the path to the dark side.

      It's been a while since we last heard of Kevin Johnson aka Cloaken. After leaving Blizzard, he briefly returned to narrate the Deathwing Spotlight, and recently, launched his own company called Harken Interactive. On YouTube, Kevin recently started The Listening Game Podcast, and in the first episode, he interviewed Lana Bachynski, a former Heroes Animator who now works on League of Legends at Riot Games.
      Lana Bachynski is responsible for bringing characters to life through movement. Her most notable work includes animation on Blizzard's Heroes of the Storm and StarCraft II. 
      Kevin and Lana talk about what made the Heroes team so special and why it was so difficult to leave.
