The Siege of King's Crest Teaser

Recommended Posts

qCdcBdZ.jpg

Blizzard started teasing the Siege of King's Crest on the official Heroes of the Storm Twitter account. We speculate that this is either a new event coming to the Nexus with the latest patch or an upcoming comic.

New Comic?

The second Heroes of the Storm comic titled Secrets of the Storm tells the story of Deckard Cain and Orphea that come to warn the Lady of Thorns about the Raven Lord who has summoned the Dark Nexus to claim another realm. Siege of the King's Crest could be the third installment of the Heroes of the Storm comic series after Rise of the Raven Lord and Secrets of the Storm.

New In-Game Event?

Siege of King's Crest may very well refer to a new in-game event that will go live on PTR next week alongside Brightwing & Kerrigan reworks and the updated Garden of Terror battleground. As with other events, we can expect new skins, mounts, portraits, and sprays.

New Battleground?

With the release of updated Hanamura and Garden of Terror, Siege of King's Crest could also be a new map starring the Raven Lord from Cursed Hollow and Lady of Thorns from Dragon Shire.

New Hero Unlikely

Some members of the community have started speculating that the teasers could refer to a new Hero, but this is extremely unlikely. We just got Mephisto and in 2018, Heroes of the Storm patches cycle through new Hero releases and Hero reworks.

Teasers

Two teasers have been released thus far.

Definitely an event tied with the upcoming reworks. I wonder what kind of skins Brightwing and Kerrigan will get.

I find surprising we're getting an event now, though, since Hallow's End is really close. But awesome, two events in a row!

Dark Nexus reiteration would be great, expanding on the concept started for Alarak and Gul'dan.

As for a new map - I would be thrilled; the more the better. With that said, I highly doubt it, as we have just received Hanamura back and Alterac not so long ago. On top of that, Garden of Terror will be reworked, so I assume it is just too much on the map devs' plate to come up with a new map.

and that is what I think as well, as Meph is still fresh.

Comic for sure, and probably an in game event too. I wonder if they would let us choose sides, since it was a thing on both Nexusmania and Alterac events.

I could see this being a new hero, there was only bout a month between Whitemane and Mephisto, show who it is on monday, 2 weeks ptr, 28 days between Mephisto and whoever if it happens. And this was how they teased the last two, so it could be possible.

Can confirm that a new comic episode is coming. 

And new skins related to Garden of Terror should be the new event. Expect something like Garden Butterfly Brightwing skin and Garden Fairy Kerrigan skin.

Definitely not a new hero, since it's not a new element/logo. Rather too early, Mephisto came out recently, so this must be a comic and maybe a couple of skins.

Stoked! Really like that the devs are bringing a storyline to the nexus. I cant wait to see all these realms and skins tie together in a way.

Also looking very much forward to the kerri and alarak skins!

Oh my I think I just peed a little...
Those skins like epic o.O 

I'm surprised Whitemane got a new skin so soon. I guess she will be the new Li-Ming, lol.

I'm disappointed we didn't get any new skins for Ragnaros or Fenix, though; they would fit well the Hallow's End-ish theme, because this event will be tied with Hallow's End when you look at the loot chest displayed.

Yeah agreed. Poor ragnaros has been due for way too long... I actually thought bw and kerri would get new skins seeming they getting the rework and all

      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.
