Heroes of the Storm - Fiery New Hero Blaze on the PTR

Heroes of the Storm

What could be better at this time of year than a beautiful, crackling open fire. In Heroes of the Storm, the new hero offers Blaze exactly that, even if not exactly as one imagines, but rather in the form of a flamethrower. A pyromaniac who was able to turn his "hobby" into a profession was of course exactly right as Firebat with "Raynor's Raiders". There Corporal Miles Lewis was able to let off steam, use his inclinations for the good of humanity and earn the incisive nickname "Blaze".

The new addition to the Nexus has been on the public test server since today and can be tested there.

    • After 0.5 seconds, Blaze falls forward, colliding with the first enemy hero hit, inflicting 52 damage to him and nearby enemy heroes. Enemies hit are also stunned for 1.25 seconds.

His first heroic ability in particular will delight many Starcraft fans. Blaze summons a complete Terran bunker for his teammates to climb into and throw flames at the enemies.

Heroic Skills
