Blizzard Entertainment deployed a small patch to address a couple of bug fixes. One of them affected Lucio, and the other one affected vs AI gameplay.

Lucio Coming to the Nexus PTR

Blizzard Entertainment dropped a surprise today announcing that the Overwatch hero Lucio is coming to the Heroes of the Storm PTR very soon for testing. At the time of this posting, Lucio hasn’t been deployed to the PTR. He’s possibly coming on Tuesday.

Below you can watch the video teaser, and 12 gameplay screenshots from Blizzard’s press gallery.

 

 

Valeera Sanguinar

Valeera Sanguinar is a melee assassin hailing from World of Warcraft. Originally, she was created for the DC Unlimited action figures line up. Shortly after, she was introduced for the first time in the Wildstorm/DC World of Warcraft Comics as an adventure companion of Lo’gosh, later discovered to be an amnesiac King Varian Wrynn. Valeera appeared in the World of Warcraft MMORPG later on during the Siege of Undercity storyline (Wrath of the Lich King expansion). Now Valeera enters the Nexus slaying her opponents with stealthy tactics and brutal Sinister Strikes and Evicerations upon unsuspecting enemies.

Difficulty: Hard

Shadow of the Uncrowned

For a time, the gladiator Valeera Sanguinar served dutifully as one of Varian Wrynn’s personal bodyguards. Now, her shadowy skills find her a natural fit within the secretive rogue order, the Uncrowned, in their fight against the Legion.

Valeera Sanguinar coming to the Nexus

Blizzard Entertainment posted via Twitter a teaser video announcing Valeera Sanguinar is coming to the Nexus. Valeera is a rogue hailing from the pages of the Wildstorm/DC Comics World of Warcraft and originally concepted as a DC Unlimited action figure.

Some time later, she was introduced in the World of Warcraft MMORPG during the Siege of Undercity storyline in Wrath of the Lich King. She is also in Hearthstone. So far, no abilities have been revealed, but one can guess she might have stealth, backstab, and fan of knives.

 

Blizzard Entertainment Sent Ragnar’Os Cereal to Fansites

With the arrival of Ragnaros upon the Nexus, Blizzard Entertainment shipped a box of cereal to several fansites and livestreamers. Our staff member @dperschonok got the gift, and shared photos. The Ragnar’Os Molten Core cereal box has funny Nutrition Facts.

For example: Serving Size: 1 Progression Level. Serving Per Container: 20. This one is funny because there are 20 levels of progression for Heroes.

Potassium is named Pro-tassium 10g. Sodium has 5,000g (1,000,000% DV), Total Carbs 1000g, Fire Resistance 150 (100% DV), Vitamin R, Iron (molten) 80%, Lead -100%.

*Percent Daily Values are based on strict Ranked Play diet. Your daily values may be higher or lower depending on Hero, rank, and quest requirements.

Ingredients: Core Fragments, Corehound Leather, High Fructose Core Syrup, Heavy Stone, Elemental Fire, Obsidian Oats, Red 13, Orange 37 (… 1337 aka Leet), Alchemically Modified Flavors.

 

 

 

Blizzard also sent a Noobz Marine with the Ragnaros skin.

Ragnar'Os Cereal

 

Inside the Cereal Box there is a trivia game named Games for INSECTS! asking:

  • Why won’t Tychus go drinking with Raynor?
  • What did Nova dress up as for Hallow’s End?
  • What is Erik, Baleog, and Olaf’s favorite TV Show?

The answers:

  • Because he took the last shot
  • A Ghost
  • Lost

 

In addition, the Cereal Box included a scratch-code card to redeem the Ragnaros hero and its Lil’ Rag skin.

 

For posterity, after you eat your spicy cereal, you keep a Ragnar’Os keychain. Careful not to set your jeans pocket ablaze. Handle with care.

 

Ragnaros

Ragnaros is a melee assassin hailing from the World of Warcraft universe. He is great at dominating lanes with AOE, decimating minion waves effortlessly, which means farming XP to keep your team ahead in levels.

Difficulty: Medium

As the lord of Azeroth’s fire elementals, Ragnaros desires nothing more than to burn the world to ash. Banished to the Firelands eons ago, the Firelord now turns his rage toward the Nexus, intent on incinerating everything and everyone within it.
