Auriel Revealed

We already saw her in the last Heroes preview but Dustin Browder properly revealed Auriel during a spot at the ChinaJoy conference this week.

Auriel can be seen placing an angelic crown, healing, and resurrecting fallen allies.

Balance Update

Not talking all changes. Just the ones that stand out to us.

BUFFS

I’d like to get your thoughts on these two heroes Kyle. Chromie still doesn’t seem like a safe pick after multiple changes and neither does Gul’dan. Do they need to be made more “mainstream”? Or should they fill a niche? Do they already fill a niche?

Chromie

Guldan

NERFS

Brightwing

Falstad

Greymane

Kael’thas

Kerrigan

Open Discussion

What heroes would we like to see added? For lore reasons and for gameplay reasons.

Kent-Erik Hagman, Lead Hero Designer said:

"I'd say the reaction to Tracer has been overwhelmingly positive! She has such a fun, almost militantly- positive personality that brings a unique voice to the Nexus. Having seen how our players reacted to her, you can definitely say that we're looking at adding even more Heroes from Overwatch! There are so many awesome characters that we think would make great, unique additions to Heroes of the Storm."
