Western Clash Deep Dive Panel

by Alebeard on

The first day of the Western Clash brought us the announcement of Probius and several upcoming features that will soon be added to the game. The final day of the Western Clash provided additional information about these and other topics courtesy of the Deep Dive panel.

by Alebeard on

A new patch has been released for Heroes of the Storm, and its a whopper. This is the same patch that has been up for testing on the PTR for the last week, so there are no real surprises here. Rather than write a patch sized article about the patch, here is a quick list of some of the major items that it contains: New Hero: Dehaka, Primal Pack Leader, is a Starcraft Warrior. Think of him like the warrior equivalent of Falstad or Brightwing due to the global presence provided by his Z ability, Brushstalker. New Battleground: Lost Cavern. This is a single lane map in the style of Tomb of the Spider Queen and the only objective is to destroy the enemy Core. It is only available in custom games, so it is perfect for ARAMs or other user created game modes. Hero League has received a bit of

Gazlowe Build:Mechanical Animal

by balrogfanbp on

Gazlowe is the mechanical one man wrecking crew in Heroes of the Storm. Gazlowe is a strong lane pusher who excels at team combos with Grav-o-Bomb and being strong at positional battles that take place on key map objectives. While he can be a confusing hero who takes a lot of practice the pay off is well worth it. For all the basics on Gazlowe head on over to the Blizzpro hero page here. Abilities Salvager (trait) is a useful passive that can really up Gazlowe’s ability to stay in lane. Remember you can destroy turrets that won’t be useful by targeting them with the D button. Destroyed structures will also drop scrap so look for those during a push. Rock It Turret (Q) This is what make Gazlowe a force during the lane and team fight phase. These can be a pain for the enemy to deal with when


Weekly Sale – Gazlowe and 2 Hero Skins

by JR Cook on

With the release of closed beta came the release of the weekly sales in Heroes of the Storm. So far it appears that Blizzard will offer one hero and 2 hero skins (with one of the skins being the hero on sale) and they will be 50% off. This week’s featured hero on sale is Gazlowe and you can pick him up for $3.24. The hero skin is the Big Top Gazlowe for $4.99 and the other hero skin is the Magni Muradin Skin for $4.99. This sale will last for 7 days and then be replaced by a new sale. Unfortunately the sale only pertains to real money transactions, so if you’re buying the hero with gold, you’ll still have to pay the full price. You can read more about this week’s weekly sale here.
