Free Hero Rotation

First impressions of Malthael plus new hero rotations Malthael has been bringing death to the Nexus for a week now, so we’ve had plenty of time to gather up our impressions… and they aren’t great. Competitive player Cattlepillar had this to say about the Nexus newcomer: it feels like literally half of malthaels talents should be baseline, his kit feels so poorly designed...

We’re waiting for the next hero with the latest rotation and sales You may be too late to pick up your Heroes of the Storm mega bundle (if you hadn’t already), but you can still grab a Welcome Bundle, which gives you 800 gems, some great loot chests (with a guaranteed hero), a 7-day stimpack, and a zebra mount. It’s a great deal for $4.99, and, after...

A new rotation is all that’s happening in Heroes this week Welcome to another week in Heroes of the Storm! Though we have one more week to go before Heroes 2.0 launches on April 25, we now know that we’re getting a new hero and new map alongside it.

This week’s Heroes rotation leaves us waiting for Heroes 2.0 It’s an all new week in Heroes of the Storm — and with one week to see Cassia in action, what do you think of the game’s latest hero? But the game’s biggest shake-up since launch, Heroes 2.0, is yet to come. Due to release on April 25, the new format reworks level progression and adds Overwatch-style loot boxes,...

This week’s Heroes rotation, plus Heroes 2.0 and Cassia What a week it’s been for Heroes of the Storm. Last week we found out about Heroes 2.0, the game’s first big rework since launch.

The adventures of Probius continue in this week’s heroes rotation Happy two-week birthday, Probius! You’re still a little under-powered, but there’s always the chance of a buff in the next patch. (And, knowing my bad timing, that patch will drop seconds after I post this.) But until any patches show up, that’s about it in Heroes of the Storm this week. We’re due for a...

For Azeroth! is back with another weekly heroes rotation Did you hear? The For Azeroth! event is back on, wrapping up this Sunday. That means you have just under a week to grab your Primal Flamesaber mount, so head into the Nexus with your friends. Remember, you only have to play 15 matches using Warcraft heroes; you don’t even have to win. If you...

And whether you’ve been following Heroes of the Dorm or not,...

Probius, For Azeroth, and this week’s free Hero rotation This is the last week of the For Azeroth! event in Heroes of the Storm, so if you WoW players have yet to nab the Primal Flamesaber mount, this is your last chance. All you need to do is complete — not necessarily win — 15 matches with a friend while playing a Warcraft hero. You can do...

Keep playing For Azeroth with this week’s hero rotation It’s another week in the Nexus, folks, and that means a new hero rotation and a fresh batch of sales. This week, For Azeroth! continues (and if you need tips on earning gold to buy Warcraft heroes, we’ve got ’em). But if you don’t want to buy, the free lineup of Warcraft heroes includes Anub’arak, Falstad, Illidan (for the second week in...

For Azeroth! will be easy with this week’s Warcraft-heavy hero rotation While there’s nothing new in Heroes of the Storm this week, the For Azeroth! event continues — and with it, plenty of WoW players are hopping into the game to get their Primal Flamesaber Mount.

It’s the last chance to get a lunar rooster in Heroes, plus a new hero rotation It may be a hum-drum week in the Nexus, with only the home stretch of the Lunar Festival to entertain us — remember to get in your last rounds of rooster racing! — but there’s a lot of new stuff on the horizon. Lucio and a Murky rework are on the Heroes of the Storm PTR (meaning both should...

Keep rooster racing with this week’s new hero rotation The Lunar Festival is still on in Heroes of the Storm, with easier rooster racing thanks to a new patch. You have until February 14th to participate, but since you need complete 25 races to get your own Lunar Rooster mount, you’ll want to get started if you haven’t already. Or you could just buy a Golden Rooster...
