Uther Revamp Preview | Heroes of the Storm 2.0 Summit

Uther has been revamped in Heroes 2.0 to heal himself when he heals another player, and various of his revamped talents have Quests and Rewards. You can view his abilities and talents; and watch my gameplay video below. I was able to play as Uther in the Hanamura map.

NOTE: As Uther is still in development, some of the talents are tagged in-game as PH (Placeholder). The released product might differ from what you watch here. Level 16 and 20 talents are missing in this article.

These are the voice over quotes repeated by Uther the Lightbringer when the player clicks on him multiple times. Here is a transcript courtesy of Cemotucu. (Thank you)

"We are all blessed by the Light."

"The Light shine on us all."

"I'm too old for this nonsense!"

"Sometimes, the light at the end of the tunnel... is a train."

"Today, I'm Uther the Painbringer!"

"What the...? What happened to that Silver Hand in the sky? Seriously, Order of the Weird Space Triangle doesn't have nearly the same ring to it."

"Back in my day, there was only one type of paladin and we were glad to have 'em."

"(Someone sneezes) Light bless you."

"Would you do that again? A little to the left this time. Ahhh... There it is."

"Let the rigtheous know peace... and the unjust know the back of my hand!"
