Heroes of the Storm previews its upcoming Chromie, Medivh, and hero skins

Stop - dragontime.

If you feel like Heroes of the Storm is lacking in powerful spellcasters, your reasoning isn’t particularly solid, but you can take heart in knowing that even more powerful casters are on their way. The newest development video shows off Chromie and Medivh; the latter is the archmage who brought the Orcs to Azeroth and then somehow came back from death to serve as a prophet, and the former is able to control time itself and also happens to be a dragon. That’s just plain unfair.

Imagine poor Raynor for a moment. He’s a dude with a gun fighting a time-controlling dragon. How is that balanced? He’s not even getting a keen new outfit, like the upcoming Widowmaker outfit for Nova showed off in the video. Of course, as a player, you don’t need to worry about that; you can just jump on down below and enjoy the video while looking forward to being the one playing aforementioned time-controlling dragon.

The dual heal needs to happen.
Specialist would work.
I think controlling a pet well is a pain in any game.

Yeah, most aren’t worth the trouble. Valla and Nova are quite nice.

By the way, Estranged. If you played Azshara after Cata, there was a goblin called Forward Commander Molotov or something. He was a goblin decked in plate with a Bilgewater tabart.
I have a drawing of a goblin i have as a character ( Ty ), a mercenary soldier of sorts.
Now, i think THAT would be a cool warrior concept. A Shotgunner goblin with explosives and gadgets for better protection and cc, and more damage the closer he is to a enemy. His range would be short since he uses buckshot, but it would be aoe, and he would have means to be in the thick of things.
Tell me what you and Mana think, she’s also a drawyer, so her imput would be great.
Also this is a old drawing, taken with a cellphone camera so…yeah it’s a bit sucky.

vicariousfan BritoBruno Yeah, but this time is more like a lack of willpower, than a lack of knowledge to test shit. They’re not tinkering Gazlowe  enough. Two reworks already and he still sucks balls.

Estranged Being a main Gazlowe is a chore when i wanna be useful. He’s a great wombocombo character, and set up a crapload of plays, but he’ll NEVER get out alive of such. No escapes, squisy, so what if he has one of the best melee auto damages of the game? He’s still in melee range without any defenses.
———————–
Rexxar needs a complete overhaul because truth be told, i find his playstyle extremely lacking. You can pretty much make a spotlight saying “Welcome to Misha spotlight, and her pet, Rexxar” because that’s what he is.
How i would fix him:
Follow the BM concept of war3. Make Rexxar a true warrior, that calls upon the wild to aid him. That means: Make him melee, make him tanky as f, put misha as a summon, that has a AI for stuns and such, Take her skills off, put roots and lifesteal on autos, make her like Lone Druid’s bear, from Dota 2. Yeah, it’s boring. it’s also functional.
Give him a skill to equip a bow for some time, that will ensure his hunter concept, while still being faithful to War3 BM. Give him temporary summon skills. Misha, the Boar, the hawk, etc etc, each with different effects.
While i find cho’gall creative, i don’t like him. He’s a crutch character on competitive because he has skewed stats since one of the players is stuck within other.
It’s pretty much the concept of giving someone a advantage to balance a handicap. A handicap that should NOT be present in a competitive game. He worked out, but i don’t think it can be done with someone else really.
——————
Or forget every shit idea i said, increase rexxar’s range, give him his bow ( place the tomahawks as skillshots ) and make him a specialist. Make Mend Pet heal him and misha, give him more specialist focused talents, and be done with.
He fails a LOT as a warrior. Maybe he’s on the wrong place.

Gazlowe is just too slow to set up shop. Agreed.
Rexxar: Misha needs better durability. Perhaps the ability to pick a pet class spec, pure ranged or melee spec on tier one? This character should have been a hunter, ranged assassin.
