Heroes of the Storm will add Diablo’s Wizard and Necromancer to its lineup

Looking forward to adding homegirl.

Do you miss playing a Necromancer in Diablo II? It’s not quite the same when you play a round of Heroes of the Storm, but you can still get that necromantic rush with the upcoming addition of Xul the Necromancer. The game is also going to add in Li-Ming the Wizard from Diablo III, giving players all of the casting diabolical action anyone could desire. You may want to get some practice in before playing the characters in question, though, as both are intended to have a decently high skill cap.

A new balance patch has also been released to help keep the existing heroes of the game in line. Lunara, Brightwing, and Stitches have all gotten some buffs to their performance, while Raynor has been made a bit more vulnerable, Tyrande’s abilities have been tuned down, and Malfurion has had his healing powers shifted slightly. It remains to be seen how much these changes will affect the game’s metagame in the long run, but that’s what balance patches do.

TheChiHawk It is like you said, she takes practice.  Most aren’t willing to work through the learning curve.

who is Zul? why not use Nilnithak? or however he’s spelled.

he doesn’t even look right for a d2 necro; the muscles on him seem completely wrong.

Sorenthaz keep in mind, female wizard, much like female demon hunter, is technically the canonical one.

TheChiHawk Sorenthaz Yeahh and to be fair the latest Nephalem was the Monk who was male.  Just would be cool to see alternate skins that are the gender alternatives.

Sorenthaz They are underbalanced on hero gender. They’re trying to fix it … so I’m not surprised.

Tyrande was without a doubt the most quietly underrated hero in this game. It’s funny to see the devs even admit this with the patch release. The first few times I used her I was highly underwhelmed–but as with most things, the more you play the more you discover nuance. After about 10 matches she became my favorite hero and my victory numbers went through the roof; she was also routinely tops in damage, healing and XP gain for the team.
I chuckle a little that they finally got around to nerfing her. It probably took so long because, like me in the beginning, no one understood how to use her. She highly benefits from the synergy of her powers. If you’re concentrating on damage only, or heals only she is lackluster. But the way her talents intertwine, if you are trying to do everything, suddenly every single power you have is ridiculously strong.
I will miss the old Tyrande.

BritoBruno Heh, true. Was thinking more a targeted guaranteed root (for prison) rather than the zombie wall, or a straight bone wall to use for stronger zoning.
Honestly, there’s a ton of really awesome stuff they could do with the D2 necro skillset and some minor tweaks to make him a fantastic offensive support character.
