So, i noticed the old thread was way over 2,000 posts, so here's a new one.

And I'm making this cause we just got a new hero announced. Guess who?


Link to old thread.

So, heroes of the storm is getting its first original hero.


She's the Raven Lord's daughter apparently, whose rebelling against daddy.

Not sure how I feel about this. I mean she's neat and all, but part of the appeal of Heroes is that its roster was made entirely from Blizzard all stars. Its basically the Smash of MOBA's, so creating new characters almost feels like cheating.

I'm in the same boat. I like her well enough, but not so much the development in general. (Blizz was pretty clever to make their first original HotS character a cute, conventionally attractive girl with style and Chaotic Good tendencies. That's an instant rabidly loyal fanbase right there, as Overwatch has also shown us.)

I'm considering reinstalling HotS for her honestly. She looks like a lot of fun, and I'm glad they're expanding the lore of the Nexus a bit more. I mean, appealing to lore and fanbases of other games is fine, but the Nexus has always had its own lore too and it kinda bothered me that so many people assumed that Sky Temple and Dragon's Shire and Towers of Doom were Warcraft maps.

Honestly I haven't even played Heroes in the storm in months because the game has been really laggy for me for some reason when it never was before.

To be fair I think people only assumed that because it was weird that WoW never had a map on HOTS before Alterac Pass. Considering that its A) Their flagship franchise, and B) There are more WoW heroes in HOTS than any other single Blizzard franchise.

I mean FFS, Overwatch got a map before WoW got one, and they don't even have a proper specialist yet.

I'm all for Orphea, and I think the choice to debut her at Blizzcon with a flashy, badass trailer was the right one. That single trailer sells her way better than the comics. And she'll herald the way for more Nexus characters, too.

I think Nexus originals mean that the game is maturing into its own identity, which is great.

In her school girl skin its a locker, so I'm gonna say its an armoire.

Good thing sh e can float, otherwise that thing would be murder on her back.
