Kel’Thuzad hits the PTR along with this week’s free hero rotation

While Kel’Thuzad still isn’t on the live servers, he has hit the PTR (along with plenty of new skins and big changes to Jaina, Morales, and Leoric) so you can give him a test drive before he arrives in the Nexus next week. But the live realms have had their own balancing patch, featuring surprise nerfs to Kerrigan and Chen. (Sorry, Kerrigan and Chen fans. Your day will come eventually.) But other than that, all we have is another new rotation — including Chromie dodgeball, which is our new favorite brawl — and a dwindling amount of time to pick up enough ranking to get Season 2’s Earthbreaker Grizzly mount.

And now that you’re up to speed on the latest from Heroes of the Storm, let’s check out this week’s rotations.
