Lunara Rework Spotlight: May 11

Recommended Posts


The First Daughter of Cenarion will be reworked in the latest content patch alongside Diablo.

The goal of the rework is to increase her talent diversity, enhance wisp abilities and offer diverse and rewarding approaches to combat.

Rework Highlights

  • Lunara's WispWisp ability now has more baseline strategic potential. After hiding in a bush for a while, her Wisp's vision range grows larger.
  • Lunara's older wisp talents have been replaced with Sentinel Wisp (available at level 1). The talent increases the bonuses granted after her Wisp has hidden, allowing it to see over obstacles and spot Stealthed enemies, all at an increased range.
    • After remaining in a bush for 5 seconds, Wisp's vision radius is increased by 200% and reveals the surrounding area.
  • Endless Spores (new talent) decreases the cooldown of her Crippling SporesCrippling Spores ability when she's poisoned two or more enemies at once.
  • Accelerated Contamination (new talent) reduces the cooldown for Noxious BlossomNoxious Blossom.
  • Both talents pair well with Splintered SpearSplintered Spear which allows Lunara to spread her toxin to up to four foes with a single basic attack.
  • Siphoning ToxinSiphoning Toxin is now available at level 4, allowing Lunara to maximize her healing as she stacks poison on foes.
  • Intensifying Toxin (new talent) greatly increases the damage of Nature's ToxinNature's Toxin when enemies have three stacks.

Interesting ideas, even if they are quite simple. The best thing is freeing up a whole tier, so that we can have more flexibility.

Think you meant to say Cenarius there.

That’s an interesting way of reworking Raynor

Long live the glorified lane minion. Hope when they do rework him to preserve his banter with Diablo from the tutorial. "That's one more for me, Red!" lelol ecksdee

Interesting rework. I don't like that they push for Splintered SpearSplintered Spear to become even more of a dominant choice, always liked Wild VigorWild Vigor better. Intensifying Toxin with Unfair AdvantageUnfair Advantage... RIP in Pepsi

Detailed analysis:

At Lv 1 we have:

Sentinel Wisp (new)

Natural Perspective

Hippity Hop: Increase Dryet's Swiftness bonus (new)

So, looks like Lunara has a 'Wolf Run' now. Honestly, Sentinel Wisp looks like the weakest choice out of these 3. 

At Lv 4 we have:

Blossom Swell (Increase Noxious Blossom range and radius) (moved from Lv 1)

Siphoning Toxin (added function: When an enemy Hero has 3 stacks of Nature's Toxin, increase the healing by 22 per second.) (aka 200% increase) (moved from Lv 7)

Nature's Culling (moved from Lv 7)

Imo, if you want to pick up Endless Spores later, Blossom Swell is gonna be your default choice here, since it improves Noxious Blossom's reliably to hit multiple heroes. 

At Lv 7 we have:

Splintered Spear

Choking Pollen (moved from Lv 16)

Wild Vigor

These 3 talents looks like the same as the current ones. 

At Lv 20 we have:

Forest's Wraith (Thronwood Vine applies Nature's Toxin)

Boundless Stride

Intensifying Toxin (new)

Galloping Gait

Here's something very interesting: Forest's Wraith makes Thronwood Vine applies Nature's Toxin, which means, the original Thronwood Vine DOES NOT apply Nature's Toxin anymore. This is a pretty huge nerf to this heroic. Even then, if you want to build around spreading poison to multiple heroes (with talents like Splintering Spear and Endless Spores), you're still going to pick Thronwood Vine and Forest's Wraith. 

We also have a W talent at Lv 13 (which is likely going to be Endless Spores) and a trait talent at Lv 16, which is not the case right now.

Even though TLV and Raynor are extremely outdated, they still decided to rework an already powerful assassin...

I'm still hoping for new rework annoucements so these won't feel pointless.

      Lady Vashj Is Not The Next Hero Heroic Deals: Week of March 25th 2020 Ranked Season 1 Extended By 2 Weeks All Heroes Unlocked Until April 2nd
    • By Stan
      The time has come to speculate who the next Hero might be and for now, we know it's not Vashj.
      Players have started speculating on Reddit who the next Hero might be and the hottest candidate was Lady Vashj, as she was recently added in Hearthstone's Ashes of Outland expansion and her Medusa-like appearance would be a nice fit for the upcoming Greek Gods event. On top of that, Heroes including Qhira have voice interactions recorded with the naga.
      Heroes of the Storm developer David Warner responded on Reddit that the next Hero isn't Lady Vashj and that the team has been thinking up funny voice lines for potential Hero interactions for years now, so the recorded interactions don't really mean a thing when it comes to determining the next Hero.
      Blizzard (Source)
      While it may seem obvious because of the circumstantial evidence surrounding her (like Qhira's voicelines), nothing is set in stone and as much as I'd hate to say it, the Heroes team is not known for their clear and concise hints. You can look at something like D.va's announcement or Whitemane's teasers to see that much. All this hype does is potentially set the community up for disappointment and put an enormous amount of stress on the 10 skeletons still working on HotS development.
      Please hype responsibly.
      I've seen a lot of casual daydreaming and "what ifs" being taken as absolute truth lately. Remember that literally anyone can be writing these posts, and the odds of some forum rando having the exclusive inside scoop on our work is extremely low.
      Our writers have been thinking up fun voice lines for *potential* hero interactions for years now. It's not necessarily an indication of anything but the future proofing process.
      P.S. The next new Hero isn't Vashj and there's no hidden cryptic messages anywhere in this post ?

      All Heroes Free to Play Through April 2nd
    • By Stan
      It appears that Blizzard has extended 2020 Ranked Season 1 by two weeks.
      Blizzard has extended the ongoing Season by two weeks after they enabled all Heroes for play until April 2nd due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We now have one month remaining instead of two weeks.

      2020 Ranked Season 2 will likely go live with the recently-announced Greek Gods event which comes with new skins for Cassia, Tracer, a Pegasus mount, and more.

      Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Blizzard made all Heroes free to play until April 2.
      Placeholder for tweet 1241138506744786944 Earlier today, we learned about the +100% increase to Experience gains in World of Warcraft. Heroes of the Storm isn't staying behind and received similar treatment, as all Heroes have been unlocked until April 2.

      Trying to do what we can to make staying inside, working from home, or being socially distant right now easier!
      Have fun trying out the heroes you have never played before!
      This is a great opportunity to try out Heroes that you never owned/played. Don't forget that reaching level 5 with a Hero rewards 500 Gold.
