Anduin

Blizzard Entertainment added Anduin to the Heroes of the Storm PTR, as new playable hero, on April 22, 2019.

The hero model uses the exact face of the voice actor, Geordie Holibar, as seen in the BlizzCon 2018: Faces of War (Behind The Scenes of Battle for Azeroth cinematic).

In this incarnation, Anduin is a Healer of medium difficulty.

His kit is dominated by healing and assist abilities with Flash Heal and Divine Star as the main healing sources. However, Divine Star initiates as a linear damage dealing ability that returns back to Anduin as a much larger wave of healing that affects friendly players in the path of return.

His trait is Leap of Faith, which pulls friendly players to Anduin, negating enemy damage and incapacitation.

KING OF STORMWIND

As a young man, Anduin sought peace as a priest of the Holy Light and an envoy of the Alliance. After his father, Varian, fell to the Burning Legion, Anduin took up the crown as High King of the Alliance. He soon learned that peace must be fought for, even in the Nexus.
