The comics also suggested a Dark Dehaka, which looked pretty sick.

I wonder if we'll also get a "Light Nexus" event with a benevolent Realm Lord trying to restore balance.

These look AWESOME! My only issue with the whole thing is they will only be available for 2 weeks. :O  I hope that's long enough to get a hold of these. At least it's only 6 skins and 6 mounts to try and get during the two weeks. Since most people will likely only want 1 or 2 versions of each skins. So values one 2400 shard item & three 600 shard items. That's 2400+1800=4000. Still a ton of shards just for one of each. I guess we better all hope for loot chest drops unless you been saving up tons of shards. I hope the Brawl this week ties into this event too. :)

Wait, I understood that the bundle would be time limited. Will all the skins and mounts become unavailable on May 14?

I think all the stuff will be still available only not in bundle like this. 

Btw. I'm really excited about this "Dark Nexus" and hope not just this coming.

The bundle will be limited, not the individual contents. You will still be able to obtain the skins and mounts after May 14; only the bundle will be removed.

I was pleasantly surprised to see they were only epic, as they look like they could easily have been made legendary.

Crafted the original colors of these Gul'dan and Alarak skins soon as I saw it. I love the characters, and the skins are amazing.

Poor Guldan looks like me at my friend's house trying to use their shower, unable to work out how to make hot water come out

The skins look nothing like the art, which is a shame because the art is so much cooler. Also the pact that Alarak's particle effects don't change colour based on the skin is a letdown. The red Bane Blades on his variants don't match well IMO.

 

That said I'm deffo saving up the shards to buy these skins.

Gotta admit, I'm with you on this one. The skins look decent, but the art looks positively badass. One thing I was disappointed by is Alarak actually still has hands, while the art makes it look like his blades are just part of his arm. Also pleasantly surprised by the prices.

Very cool and generally-useful mounts, too.

I had this issue with Jaina's Dreadlord skin. I just wished they had changed her staff colour with the rest of the skin.

      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.
