PAX East 2018 - Blizzard Introduces New Hero: Deckard Cain! - MMORPG.com

During the Heroes of the Storm PAX East panel, it was announced that Deckard Cain is coming to the Nexus!

  • He's a longtime favorite of everyone at Blizzard and on the HotS team
  • The challenge was how a "narrator" would function on the battlefield
  • The magic of the Nexus is that we get to bring them "back to life"
  • He's a set up healer
  • Horadric Cube is a damage spell
  • Stay Awhile & Listen is one heroic ability that causes enemies to fall asleep
  • Lorenado is his second heroic ability - swirls out and pushes enemies away

The panel continues with a discussion about the lore of Heroes of the Storm and how the team is fleshing out the game's own lore as opposed to "borrowing" from Blizzard's other games.

  • the Nexus is an actual place, a place that is at the center of a cosmic storm of connected worlds
  • battlegrounds are both Blizzard IP related and HotS Nexus specific
  • the team will be telling new stories and bringing new things to the table
  • concept art shows "Neo-Stormwind"
