Heroes of the Storm – Li Li Stormstout Talents
Blizzard Entertainment revealed four new Heroes at PAX East 2014, and within four days made Li Li Stormstout available to play in Heroes of the Storm Technical Alpha on April 15th.
Li Li Stormstout is an easy-to-learn support Hero who can heal her allies, and push and blind enemies with the force of a wind gust.
Born upon Shen-zin Su, the Wandering Isle, Li Li Stormstout led a somewhat uneventful life until she began reading the journals of her uncle Chen. Soon, nothing would sate her desire for adventure, exploration, and pestering adventurers around Halfhill.
Role: Ranged Support
Li Li Stormstout was introduced into the Warcraft universe through a graphic novel published by DC Comics, titled World of Warcraft: Pearl of Pandaria. Her story was written by Blizzard publishing lead and New York Times best selling author Micky Neilson, and illustrated by Sean Galloway.
The graphic novel is also available as a digital download for various mobile devices and for the Windows PC.
Shortly after, Li Li Stormstout was introduced along with Chen Stormstout as an NPC in World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria closed beta. She is found originally on the eastern side of the Valley of the Four Winds. There they accompany the player in a long-journey throughout the Valley of the Four Winds, stopping at different locations and providing quests in each hub. The adventure ends at the Stormstout Brewery dungeon.
Li Li Stormstout and her uncle Chen are later seen by the player in the Dread Wastes where we find out the fate of some of their new-found family members.
The official World of Warcraft website also published a prelude to the Mists of Pandaria MMO expansion titled Destination: Pandaria. It features the adventures of Li Li Stormstout as she traveled the world and ultimately reached Pandaria.
