Heroes of the Storm enlists Li-Ming tomorrow


Buffs for Rehgar
Feb 01
 
It seems Chris and I have begun taking turns covering Heroes of the Storm. He last shared impressions of Li-Ming, and now I'm back to tell you she's launching earlier than expected. After a short stint on the public test real...




Li-Ming is a powerhouse in Heroes of the Storm, but not overly so


Up now on PTR
Jan 27
 
The last two characters in Heroes of the Storm have ended up with rather disappointing when it comes to rankings. After two weeks, Greymane is the fourth worst hero in terms of win-rate, and Lunara is the fifth worst. That's ...




Li-Ming seems deadly in Heroes of the Storm


She's playable now on the PTR
Jan 26
 
Before Xul the Necromancer makes it to Heroes of the Storm in the coming weeks, we're getting another character from the Diablo series, Li-Ming the Wizard. Ahead of her wide release (which is set for February 9, accordin...




That's Arthas as a man-bat in Heroes of the Storm


These are the new cosmetic items
Jan 22
 
Blizzard has a video previewing the next batch of heroes, skins, and mounts coming soon to Heroes of the Storm and oh my god did Arthas just turn into a bat because he's a vampire? He did. He totally did. And that blue Lt. Mo...




Diablo's Necromancer is headed to Heroes of the Storm


He'll be joined by the Wizard
Jan 21
 
Someone's been hitting the gym since his Diablo II days! The fan favorite Necromancer (Xul) and Diablo III's Wizard (Li-Ming) are coming to Heroes of the Storm, Blizzard revealed today. There isn't an official breakdown of th...




Heroes of the Storm's 2016 tournaments start soon


Here's the spring schedule
Jan 18
 
This year, we'll have quite a few opportunities to watch top Heroes of the Storm players compete. Blizzard has some $4 million in prizes to give out during its Global Championship Circuit. The competition is split up into thr...




Heroes of the Storm gets the shapeshifting Greymane tomorrow


Lord of the Worgen
Jan 11
 
I've fallen a little behind in Heroes of the Storm since Lunara's debut, but I'll want to get back to playing regularly soon. Blizzard is adding Greymane tomorrow! He's a ranged human assassin capable of transforming into a powerful melee-centric beast mid-fight. Take a look:




Heroes of the Storm's Lunara sure is fun


15,000 gold or $9.99 ($4.99 with sale)
Dec 17
 
Lunara arrived in Heroes of the Storm this week, and I boosted her up to level 5 in one night alone -- she's that fun to play. As an assassin she's capable of tons of damage (I'm usually top Hero Damage in unranked play)...




You'll need friends to earn this cool Heroes of the Storm mount


It's tied to a recruitment program
Dec 08
 
Blizzard has begun its "Recruit a Friend" program for Heroes of the Storm in which players can share a unique sign-up link with their pals to unlock in-game rewards. Notably, you can earn a Vulture Hover Bike mount, shown abo...




Heroes of the Storm's 360 day XP boost is $60


A 50% discount
Nov 24
 
Heroes of the Storm's Black Friday sale is upon us today, which provides a 50% discount on everything in the game. But I couldn't find info on the supposed "deeply discounted" 360 day Stimpak (read: XP boost) so I decided to ...




This Heroes of the Storm map is a lot to take in


Towers of Doom
Nov 24
 
Prior to playing the new Heroes of the Storm map, Towers of Doom, my only real exposure to it was reading the all-too-brief objective summary during the loading screen. Thank goodness I was only training with the AI. This map...




Heroes of the Storm is throwing a 50% off sale next week


That includes heroes, skins, and mounts
Nov 20
 
Hey, big spender. You may want to hold off on making any purchases in Heroes of the Storm over the next few days. Blizzard is about to throw a fairly substantial Black Friday sale. From November 24 to December 8, the game's s...




Heroes of the Storm's Cho'gall is freaking weird, but feels balanced


Rolling out today
Nov 17
 
Earlier this month, Blizzard announced a two-player hero in the form of Cho'gall for Heroes of the Storm. In essence, the primary player would control movement and their own set of abilities with Cho, and another would take care of Gall, who is attached to the former -- almost like a permanent Abathur hat. It makes for an interesting playstyle, but of course, it has its drawbacks.




Heroes of the Storm's two-player hero in action


Power couples only please
Nov 16
 
Cho'Gall looks every bit as delightfully ridiculous as I was hoping he'd be since his announcement during BlizzCon. The two-headed Ogre is a giant of a hero with a massive health pool and an assortment of wild attacks and ski...




New characters announced for Heroes of the Storm, including a two-player hero


Haha wow
Nov 06
 
Heroes of the Storm is known for trying some of the more unconventional types of playstyles, and that goes double for the upcoming character Cho'gall. As Warcraft fans know, this famous ogre has two heads, which will all...




Overwatch's Tracer basically confirmed for Heroes of the Storm


Probably not until mid 2016
Nov 06
 
Multiple retailers seemed to have ruined Blizzard's surprise, and spilled the beans early for the console versions of Overwatch. But as Blizzard tends to do, buying the premium version of the game will net you bonuses for oth...




Heroes of the Storm's new Halloween content is pricey


This picture is worth $53.04
Oct 23

I'm not sold on Heroes of the Storm's Artanis yet


The game's first StarCraft Warrior
Oct 21
 
Heroes of the Storm's Artanis isn't dropping officially until October 27, but those of you who pre-ordered Legacy of the Void can play him now, as part of an early access program. While Artanis might be a formidable foe within the confines of the StarCraft universe, I'm not sure I'll be using him to suit my Warrior needs.




Blizzard is going to completely overhaul Heroes of the Storm matchmaking


After a warranted rant from a top player
Oct 15
 
Yesterday, a rant from #1 rated Heroes of the Storm player Srey took reddit by...storm (ha). Essentially, he pleaded for a better matchmaking experience both on lower and higher levels of play. Right now, the system seemingly...




Legacy of the Void owners can get Artanis early in Heroes of the Storm


Or just stockpile your gold
Oct 06
 
I haven't even seen the Medic yet! Before I know it, Artanis will be here too. He's headed to Heroes of the Storm as a melee warrior on October 27, 2015, but there's a way to get him early. Folks who pre-purchase StarCraft II...

Blizzard is bringing a few big changes to Heroes of the Storm soon


Death timers and snowball prevention
Oct 02
 
Heroes of the Storm is about to get the Medic and Artanis heroes, but there's a few big changes on the way for the core game. The first adjustment is death timers. Blizzard feels like they were way too low early on in a ...




Artanis has been datamined in Heroes of the Storm, check out his abilities


He sounds like a beefier Zeratul
Sep 30
 
Heroes of the Storm has only begun its content updates, as we have a whole host of skins, mounts, and characters coming up. The Support-based Medic Lt. Morales is set to debut soon, and after that, the Warrior Artanis. W...




Heroes of the Storm's Medic is the dedicated healer we needed


Not a hybrid
Sep 29
 
Kharazim is probably my favorite character in Heroes of the Storm at the moment, but it's about time that we got the StarCraft healer we've always wanted with Lt. Morales, the Medic. With a number of supports e...




Heroes of the Storm's Medic has a Samus Aran skin


Check out what's coming to Heroes
Sep 24

Quick thoughts on Heroes of the Storm's Rexxar


Bear is driving! How can that be?
Sep 08
 
Heroes of the Storm is stepping away from the Diablo event as of today, and is focusing more on Warcraft and Starcraft in the coming months. The Treasure Goblins are out, and Rexxar, the half-orc half-ogre is in, with his partner Misha the bear (albeit with some launch issues for some). Here's some quick thoughts on whether or not he's worth your 15,000 gold.




Newest Heroes of the Storm character is a two-for-one


Everything is better with bears
Sep 04
 
What's better than throwing giant axes in your enemy's face? Throwing giant axes in your enemy's face while a huge freaking bear mauls them to death. Rexxar will join the Heroes of the Storm roster next week on the 8th and he...




Heroes of the Storm's Eternal Conflict event ends next week


Get that free Diablo before it's gone!
Sep 03
 
Blizzard is, ironically, putting an end to the Eternal Conflict event on September 8 next week. The Diablo theme will be taken out, and the special event quest to genocide every last Treasure Goblin will come to an end. ...




Heroes of the Storm has a neat little Duck Hunt homage


It will likely go away next patch
Aug 21
 
Whenever you have time, boot up Heroes of the Storm and check out this cute new Easter egg. It takes place in the Monk's splash screen following the latest patch, and allows you to play a small little game of Duck Hunt....




Heroes of the Storm's Monk patch is out right now


Also, the bundle update and more tweaks
Aug 18
 
Today, you can get your hands on Heroes of the Storm's Monk for 15,000 Gold, or $10. He's a hybrid support of sorts, with a heavy emphasis on damage, more-so than most of the supports in the game. He's also really fun to play...




Here's how to get the Diablo III/Heroes of the Storm cross-items


Items for both games
Aug 18
 
Blizzard has explained the cross-promotion efforts for Diablo III and Heroes of the Storm, which can net you some nice little extras depending on how much you play. First off, anyone who owns Diablo III (has a licen...




Heroes of the Storm's Monk sure is versatile


Here's the rundown on Kharazim
Aug 13
 
I'm excited for Kharazim to join Heroes of the Storm next week. If you haven't yet played as the monk in the Public Test Realm, Blizzard's spotlight video is a crash course on his versatility. Kharazim can focus on extra dama...




Quick thoughts on Heroes of the Storm's Monk and new Infernal Shrines level


Currently on PTR
Aug 11
 
Blizzard has unleashed a host of new changes onto the public test realm (PTR) for Heroes of the Storm, including a new character (Kharazim the Monk) and a new map (Infernal Shrines). I had a chance to take them both for a spi...




Heroes of the Storm's new dynamic bundles won't screw you out of money


Good!
Aug 10
 
While I adore Heroes of the Storm as a MOBA, it still needs a lot of work behind the scenes and on the backend. One such issue is the storefront, which, among other issues, charges users full price for bundles when they ...




Heroes of the Storm enlists StarCraft's Medic


Plus a look at upcoming skins
Aug 07
 
I was more than happy to see Blizzard show off three upcoming characters in Heroes of the Storm this week, but there's another announcement! StarCraft's Medic is also in development. In a round-up email covering Kharazim (who...




These are the next three Heroes of the Storm


Artanis, Kharazim, and Rexxar
Aug 05
 
I don't think I'll stray far from Valla (especially now that I have her Master Skin), but I have been stockpiling gold for another Diablo character in Heroes of the Storm -- Kharazim, Monk of Ivgorod. At gamescom, Blizzard opened up about the Monk and shared details on two other heroes (Warcraft's Rexxar and StarCraft's Artanis) as well as a new three-lane map, Infernal Shrines.

Heroes of the Storm's Leoric is another unique addition to the entire MOBA genre


What is dead may never die
Jul 21
 
Today, Blizzard dropped Leoric the Skeleton King, the newest addition to Heroes of the Storm. He's a melee Warrior with one very intriguing trait, and has a heavy amount of lore to draw upon from the Diablo series. In short, he's a perfect candidate for the game, and Blizzard has been on a roll since debuting Kael'Thas, Johanna, and Butcher respectively.




Diablo's King Leoric joins Heroes of the Storm today


Rest in peace, already!
Jul 21
 
This video for King Leoric isn't as informative as the prior one, but I had to share it for that last line. The new Heroes of the Storm combatant seems as if he'll be a royal pain in the ass on maps like Cursed Hollow and Sky Temple, to say nothing of his undying ability that lets him roam around as a wraith. I'm saving my stockpile of gold for the Monk, though. He was my boy in Diablo III.




This Heroes of the Storm Zeratul play is insanely clutch


This is why you take Void Prison

A Q&A with the game's lead producer
