Latest Heroes of the Storm Event & Character / Map Reworks Now Live
Heroes of the Storm (NA) has been updated to bring the Fall of Kings Questline into the game along with reworked heroes Kerrigan and Brightwing and the newly retooled Garden of Terror map. In addition, Ranked Season 4 and Team League changes have been made live for those on the competitive side of things.
The event will feature some new skins for Alexstrasza, Brightwing, Kerrigan, Maiev, Whitemane and Zarya. The new skins are accompanied by new mounts, portraits, sprays and emojis. All of these can be won in level up boxes during gameplay.
Developer Comment: Kerrigan is receiving an update to increase the tactical depth of using her abilities and increase the impact that her Talents have on her playstyle. We've reduced the range on Ravage but added a second charge so that smart Kerrigan players can use it to maneuver on the battlefield, as well as utilize a lot of her Talents to get the most out of the ability. We've added a secondary explosion to Primal Grasp so that Kerrigan will want to continue to worry about her positioning after her initial engagement occurs, as well as provide the opportunity for new Talent interactions. We've also added a skillshot component to Ultralisk so that the Heroic can feel like it has a big moment when it is first unleashed. Overall, Kerrigan should play mostly the same, but have increased room for mastery and playstyle specific builds.
