Breakfast Topic: I want Deckard Cain in Heroes of the Storm

No, this isn’t a joke. Think about it: Deckard Cain would be the perfect addition to Heroes of the Storm. After Medivh joins the Nexus roster on June 14, we don’t know anything about the next hero… so why not Deckard Cain?

So, yes, I want a playable Deckard Cain in Heroes of the Storm. While we only see him in-game as a hobbling old man (stay a while and listen), he wasn’t always old. He was a schoolmaster, a town elder, and the last of the Horadrim — whether young or old, if you take the “knowledge is power” route Cain has what it takes to make it in the Nexus.

In the end, even if all of his powers were ridiculously contrived I really don’t care, because I’d like to see more of Deckard Cain (even in the sometimes silly environment of Heroes). Just knowing Cain won’t be in Diablo 4 if it ever comes depresses me, so, Blizzard, put him in Heroes.

But just what would his abilities be? Since I’m not terribly original, I’ll ask you, the readers what powers you’d give ol’ Deckard. I think he’d make a solid support her with powers based around Horadric lore. What would you give him?
