Hidden Easter Eggs: Harrison Jones

by JR Cook on

Did you know that Harrison Jones has been hanging out in the Nexus lately? He’s a bit hidden but you can find him lurking on the Sky Temple and Tomb of the Spider Queen maps. In fact, if you find him and win the game, he’ll come celebrate with you at your opponents core. Last night, the Heroes Powerhour crew was playing with Alebeard from AlebeardTV on Twitch and he showed us how to find Harrison Jones. There is a little cylinder right below the boss with a cover on it. If you click it enough it will break the cover and Harrison Jones will pop out. He’ll then hop on a magic carpet and zoom away being chased by what looks like a large spider. It’s quite likely the Tomb of the Spider Queen resides right underneath Sky Temple. The next easter egg takes place on Sky Temple. On ...

 

Chen: Drunk Tank Build

by balrogfanbp on

Chen, the drunken panda tank, has been a BlizzPro favorite by many of our staff members. I think his strengths draw from the fact that Wandering Keg counters channel spells, which makes him a great counter pick in draft style play. He also can get the craziest health regeneration out of any hero in the game! If you would like to see the basics head on over to the Chen hero page here Chen’s trait is Fortifying Brew. Chen does not have use a mana pool, instead he uses his trait to gain brew. With Fortifying Brew Chen gains 40 brew and a temporary shield. The brew caps at 100 and the shield caps at 120, though the shield scales higher with levels. The shield will persist for two seconds after you stop using Fortifying Brew. This trait is what makes Chen unique. Managing your brew levels and getting the ...

 

Illidan Build and Gameplay

by JR Cook on

Episode 13: Illidan Build and Gameplay So, everyone has the heroes they are good at. Twizz proves in this episode that Illidan is NOT his strong suit. A very powerful hero….in the right hands. We also discuss the new flare added to the game with this new patch, play 2 quick match games and one hero league! It’s a big adjustment to the new meta. We hope you enjoy! http://patreon.com/BlizzPro...

The Heroes beta has been taken down to apply a new patch, bringing the much-anticipated Tomb of the Spider Queen battleground and Sylvanas Windrunner as a hero. In the creepy-crawly Tomb, players will race to gather gems from NPCs and enemy Heroes, turning them in to summon a horde of Webweavers, which attack the enemy base. Going hand-in-mandible with the Spider Queen’s necropolis is the deceased elven ranger, Sylvanas Windrunner. Sylvanas is a specialist siege style of character, with abilities that lean heavily towards a control-oriented style of play. As far as balance changes go, Tyrande and Uther get some significant changes. Valla gets a bit of a nerf and Stitches becomes less tanky. Diablo will be able to help out in team fights more often now that his Apocalypse cooldown has been reduced. Murky and Abathur will be a little more prevalent (especially if you play Murky for team fights instead of ...

 

Team League Details

by JR Cook on

Team League is coming in the next closed beta patch (no word on if that’s tomorrow or later). You will be able to create up to 3 teams and each team will cost 1,000 gold to create. This cost is only for the team creator and not for all members. The reason for this is to try and make teams meaningful so that people aren’t creating and deleting teams all the time. Like Hero League you will need at least 10 owned in order to participate. You will also need to be level 40 as well (as opposed to 30 for Hero League). Banning heroes isn’t going to be a part of Team League either. It seems Blizzard has a different stance on this than other MOBAs so it’s something players may not be used to. One of the nice things about Team League hero picking is that the order ...

New Skins and Mounts Coming

by JR Cook on

With Sylvanas releasing next week we have some new skins for her as well as some for other characters and a couple new mounts. Sylvanas shows off her Ranger-General skin and her Master Skin which will be sold for 10k gold. To celebrate Easter, Murky will be dressed up as the Easter Bunny complete with a decorated egg as he hits his opponents over the head with a bouquet of flowers. There are 2 new mounts available such as the Mechanospider mount and the Ironside Dire Wolf mount. It’s currently unknown if these will be sold separately or will be part of a bundle. Finally, we have an update to the Mecha Tassadar skin in which it shows off how he looks not only in Archon form but also as a mount. Yes, he’s a god damn jet! This is a skin I am definitely excited about. You can check out ...

XP Boost Event Week

by JR Cook on

With the news that Sylvanas and the new battleground Tomb of the Spider Queen releasing next week, players will also have something else to play for. The race to get to level 10 Sylvanas will be a bit easier as starting tomorrow and through the rest of the week, Heroes of the Storm will be having a 25% experience boost active. This is not only the best way to level characters, but also a great way to get characters to level 5 (which will grant you that 500 gold per character). Keep in mind that these xp boosts stack with playing with friends and also if you have a stim pack. The event will start on March 21 and end March 29. As of right now this is just confirmed on the EU battle.net site, but based on the fact that Vaeflare wrote the article (a NA community manager) we ...

 

On our most recent episode of the Heroes Powerhour I unveiled my new favorite hero, Diablo. He has quickly jumped to my favorite tank in the game! The reason is so many teams are built around positioning right now and Diablo does a great job at disrupting that. Not to mention his health pool is massive along with okay damage for a tank. If you want to check out the basics on Diablo, or take a look at his skins, head over to the BlizzPro Diablo hero page here. Diablo’s trait is a passive called Black Soulstone. For every minion that gets killed near Diablo he gains 1 soulstone or 10 per hero kill. For each soul you collect your maximum health is increased by 5. Diablo can collect up to 100 souls. Once at 100 souls if Diablo dies he will lose all 100 but resurrect in 5 seconds. ...
