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 definitely be tied with Hallow's End when you look at the loot chest displayed. And when you consider that Whitemane got a witch skin, it makes sense.

Not surprised about Whitemane getting another skin so soon, sexy skins for females will obviously sell, though Li-Ming could have been a witch. Out of these, I like Alex the most, Maiev is also pretty good. Too bad there aren't any new skins for some male characters.

Li-Ming or Sylvanas.

a Spider Fenix would have been cool (even tho I absolutely hate spiders!) but I can see the pain of animating it. 4 legs probably already are a hassle, dunno what 8 would do.

I actually like the Zarya skin. The color variations could be interesting.

So upset there's no Kel'thuzad skin.

I thought there was gonna be a High Heavens vs Burning Hells event, similar to Alliance vs Horde recently, guess they pulled back on it because of the leak? Oh well... We're still getting one 😄

A new battleground where two realm lords are fighting would be so great, love the idea and the story behind it like Towers of Doom (Gravekeeper did end up going back to those "wretched mines" so I guess he lost ecksdee) but yeah, seems unlikely...:/

Fixed that for you :p Seriously tho, Nova was getting a bunch of skins some time ago, like one every new patch or two, I love her but even I thought this was a bit too much. It has stopped recently tho (guess she isn't as popular anymore, cause they have ruined her 😞 )

Talking about popularity, it sure is the driving force on who gets new skins and who doesn't (at least for a while); exception being when the skin is part of a set/skin line. Fenix is sure popular tho, I expect him to get one soon (hope so too, was ready to spend gems for the first time on his bundle but the skins didn't excite me one bit).

Li-Ming has more skins than any other Hero in the game, with a total of 29 (meanwhile Nova has 13). The only other Hero with as many skins is Sonya, with 27.

Well, generally I don't count the recolors as different/extra skins. With that, let's say she has 4 more. Now, Star Queen is pretty much a glorified Star Princess, Nephalem is a bit... The thing with Nova was that not only she was getting frequently but also all have been high quality, I remember seeing many ppl complaining. Guess you can say she was the former queen, haha (even without the recolors tho, wasn't aware Li Ming had that many and thought Nova had more).

I still count recolors as extra skins because it is an extra effort, plus while she gets more recolors other Heroes could have got recolors as well (i.e. Ragnaros, The Lost Vikings).

      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.

      Mastery Rings are a new feature that was added to the game in the latest balance update. They are the successor to legacy Mastery Skins that existed back then. When you reach level 15 and 25 with a certain Hero, you will be able to purchase these augmented rings for 5,000 Gold each.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’re adding a new feature to Heroes of the Storm that will allow you to charge into battle with an extra bit of flair: introducing Mastery Rings!
      Reaching level 15 with a hero you own will unlock the ability to use gold to purchase a Mastery Ring for that hero, which will be displayed in game as an extra adornment of your hero’s regular selection circle. Additionally, when you reach level 25 with that hero you can then purchase an even more distinct Mastery Ring with gold.
      FAQ
      Q: Can I get Mastery Rings for more than one hero?
      A: You can get Mastery Rings for as many heroes as you like, given than you’ve reached at least level 15 with those heroes.
      Q: Do I purchase these rings for each Hero separately?
      A: Yes. These rings signify experience playing individual heroes and let other players know that you know how to play your chosen hero, so Mastery Rings are hero-specific.
      Q: When will Mastery Rings become available?
      A: Mastery Rings are live now!
