Blizzard Entertainment has released the second Heroes of the Storm digital comic titled Secrets of the Storm. In this issue, Deckard Cain and Orphea team up to find a solution for the Dark Nexus threat. They come to Raena the Lady of Thorns, for help.
This issue, we learn the Dragon Knight was formerly the king of Dragon Shire. Raena is likely to become the realm lord of Garden of Terror if we go by the subtle hint of her curse. Raena is slowly being affected by a curse that entangles her skin with thorn vines.
Blizzard Entertainment published the Rise of the Raven Lord comics, the first step to introducing the Nexus’ lore, as described at the PAX East 2018 panel.
What I learned is that there are other realms beyond Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo. Some of the minions seen in the Nexus, each come from other worlds as well. The Raven Lord has been in the Nexus thousands of years, and has peeked into each of the other universes from his lair. He is in search of something that could help stop a upcoming threat to the Nexus.
It is also revealed there is a Dark Nexus, and to coincide with that revelation, Blizzard has announced the Dark Nexus skins for Alarak and Gul’dan.
There are new characters: Neeve (who seems to serve Lord Raven), and Orphea (who is mentioned, but not seen in the comic).
The comic ended with a cliffhanger, so it’s a bet we will continue to see more of the Rise of the Raven comics in upcoming weeks.
