Our next Heroes of the Storm patch has just hit the Public Test Realm and will be available for playtesting until the week of September 23rd. As always, if you encounter any bugs during your PTR play sessions, please stop by the PTR Bug Report forum to let us know about your experiences.


  •  MacOS Update:
    • With this patch, Heroes of the Storm will use Metal for rendering on macOS. This change ensures that Heroes is compatible with macOS Catalina and that it continues to be compatible with macOS for a long time to come. As a result, the minimum required version of macOS to run Heroes of the Storm is being increased to macOS 10.12 Sierra
    • There are a few known issues in this release:
      • Stuttering and stalling may be experienced early on in a game, particularly when the game first loads in and when the enemy team is first encountered. These stalls will get better over the course of a game and over the course of several games as macOS optimizes Heroes of the Storm behind the scenes
      • Some outlines render black
      • Some outlines and team color-based textures may render using colors from the color blind palette when color blind mode is disabled

Developer Comment: We will continue to work hard to resolve these and any other issues as we commit to providing a quality experience for our macOS players.

  • Free Loot Chest with 30 Day Boost Promotion (Twitch Promotion)
    • Until October 22nd, receive a free Legendary Scarlet Heist Chest when you purchase a 30 day boost!

New Event: The Scarlet Heist 

New Tirisfal City. A town where every cop is on the take and every crook pays their dues. From her penthouse suite atop the Scarlet Monastery Casino, Whitemane runs the largest criminal empire this side of Tirisfal. There isn't a deal that gets made, a job that gets pulled, a scam that gets run without Whitemane giving her blessing and getting her cut. Until now.

Scarlet Heist Event Dates

  • The Scarlet Heist is the fall event for Heroes of the Storm running from the week of September 24 – December 3. You’ll be able to equip skins for Junkrat, Orphea, Sgt. Hammer, and Whitemane, and complete quests to unlock Portraits, Sprays, Emojis, and special Mounts.

Scarlet Heist Loot Chests

  • During the Scarlet Heist event, all Loot Chests you earn through progression, Heroes Brawl, or by spending gold will be Scarlet Heist Loot Chests. (Except Hero-specific Chests, which will remain unchanged.) Most limited-time items shown above have a chance to drop from Scarlet Heist Loot Chests only. You can also score Items from previous years’ limited-time Fall of King's Crest event in Scarlet Heist Loot Chests!

Scarlet Heist Quests

  • Orphea's plan is simple: she grabs the safe while Junkrat brings the firepower and Bama provides the getaway. Whitemane would never expect anyone to be bold (or stupid) enough to steal from the Scarlet Mafia. And that's the best thing that Orphea's crew has going for them. As you complete quests you will unlock rewards and if you can pull off the heist you’ll unlock the Royal Getaway Sidecar mount.

Developer Comment: Talk about fireworks?! With our last balance patch, we introduced some changes to Shadow FissureShadow Fissure that ended up causing a bit more mayhem than we had expected. While we like rewarding players for hitting their abilities, a full instant reset of the ability ended up feeling pretty bad to play against in a lot of circumstances. This was compounded with the changes we also made to Might of the ScourgeMight of the Scourge, so instead of a full reset, we decided to dial it back a notch and set the cooldown to 1.5 seconds instead.

Wasn't expecting a Junkrat rework, but his new Q, W and E build paths all look interesting. The new Whitemane has a better flow to her, not having to abuse High Inquisitor.

Didn't expect reworks for Whitemane and Junkrat, but they are a welcome sight. Junkrat seems much stronger with those changes, being able to rotate his heroic at 20 makes picking Rocket Ride more viable.

      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.
      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!

Qhira's Finishing Touch has been buffed to help equalize the level 1 talent tier. Junkrat's base health and regeneration have been increased and we have some follow-up changes to even out his talents (see below for details).

New Feature: Hero Mastery Rings A lot of you may remember the old 'Mastery Skins' and we are excited to bring back another way for players to show off their mastery of individual Heroes. With today's patch, players will be able to spend 5,000 gold to purchase augmented Hero Rings for any Hero over the levels of 15 (Level 1) and 25 (Level 2). These Mastery Rings are permanent when purchased and will be placed over the top of the normal Hero Ring, becoming visible to all players while in a match.
