BlizzPro's Heroes Of The Storm

 

The patch is not out yet, but my guess is we might see it by next week (unless they decide to release it later tonight or this week). It looks like the patch will be some balance changes and some hero and talent reworks as well as introducing a new hero Kael’thas. The @BlizzHeroes twitter account recently tweeted out the Kael’thas tease: .@Warcraft was only a setback. pic.twitter.com/l8m3ocsrX0 — Heroes of The Storm (@BlizzHeroes) May 5, 2015 Then Game Designer Matthew Cooper put together a little blog about what we’ll be seeing in the upcoming patch. The biggest changes we’ll be seeing are changes to Healing Ward (making it easier to destroy) along with some upcoming nerfs to ETC and Diablo and some talent reworks that will buff them in different areas. Hopefully we’ll be seeing a more diverse field of warriors with these changes. Other than that, Blizzard will ...

Now that we have an official release date of June 2nd, 2015, Blizzard has announced a Starter Pack to help get you started if you weren’t able to get into the Beta, or to supplement what you’ve already earned along the way. The Starter Pack is available from the in-game store and includes five heroes (Zagara, Sonya, Li-Li, Jaina, and Zeratul). This gives you one Warrior, Support, and Specialist hero, along with two Assassin Heroes. For new players this can be a great way to try out each role and find out which fits you best.

Also included in the pack is the Ronin Zeratul skin, and the Golden Tiger mount. It also seems that Blizzard has heard ...

 

Jaina: Burst of Cold Build

by balrogfanbp on

Jaina is one of the strongest heroes in the game when it comes to burst damage. Her wide variety of cold spells allow her to slow enemy targets for easy kills. Jaina is every bit a glass cannon, all damage with no health, but the slow effects on the abilities make her a hard target to close in on. To see some of the basics on Jaina head on over to the BlizzPro hero page located here. Abilities Frostbite is Jaina’s trait and it’s what makes her abilities all cause a slow effect with a damage increase. The key is to make sure that your next spell hits before the 4 seconds expire so that you can get the most burst damage possible. Frostbolt(Q) is a long range skill shot with a low cooldown. If Jaina can open her combo with this skill then the damage potential increases highly. This ...

When Heroes of the Dorm was announced at PAX East, I not only thought the name was corny but that it wouldn’t be all that big of an ordeal even with the ESPN thing. I figured it would be interesting to some but for the most part people wouldn’t really care. Those who would want to watch it would watch it regardless of what it was on and that they might as well have streamed it on Twitch since that’s where most of the audience would be at anyway. I thought in the end it would be a small footnote of history that would consist of people patting their own backs for bringing eSports to TV and “We did it eSports!” while the rest of the world doesn’t even bat an eye. Boy was I wrong. Instead, eSports history was made last night and people took notice. Social media absolutely ...

 

Rehgar: All Purpose Support Build

by balrogfanbp on

Rehgar has been the top support in most peoples book for a long time. Rehgar brings strong heals, damage, and utility to every team fight with his amazing variety of spells. Rehgar’s skills allow him to be not only a great healer but a highly mobile chase down hero. For the basics on Rehgar check out BlizzPro’s hero page here. Trait and Abilities Rehgar’s trait is Ghost Wolf(Z) which allows Rehgar to turn into a wolf instead of mounting. While he moves 10% slower than mounted characters he does not break form when struck. This allows Rehgar some great mobility for escapes and chase downs. Rehgar also gains 100% extra damage to his next basic attack while he is in wolf form but attacking will break the form. Make sure to use this when getting camps or for some extra damage when dueling other heroes. Chain Heal(Q) is a heal ...

Heroes Release Date

by pallimmanis on

Over the weekend the Heroes of the Storm Community team teased an announcement happening today. In a video and blog posted this morning, we now know what that announcement is: That’s right, we have a launch date! Following a two week period of open beta testing, Heroes of the Storm will officially launch June 2nd, 2015. There will not be any more wipes of existing data, so whatever progress you’ve made thus far you will keep when the game launches. While there are some minor technical issues which still need to be worked out, keep in mind this still gives Blizzard six weeks to do final polishing before the game goes live. Once the game does go live most issues with matchmaking should work themselves out as there will be many players for the system to choose from when creating matches. Development for the game will also be ongoing as ...

 

Tychus: Siege and Secure Build

by balrogfanbp on

Tychus is one of those characters that have fallen out of favor in the current meta but I assure you that he is still an amazing pick. Tychus is very versatile in the damage roles he can play while also having access to some great self sustain tools. If you would like to read up on the basics of Tychus you can check out his hero page here. Tychus’s passive trait is the Minigun which increases his attack speed the longer Tychus attacks. Once Tychus has reached four auto attacks the Minigun is fully wound and will no longer gain attack speed. This is an interesting trait that has it’s uses when it comes to siege damage, mercenary camps, and wave clear. I find myself not auto attacking much as Tychus during the lane phase due the fact that you need to stand still which will open you up to ...
