Gul’dan and Auriel from WoW and Diablo Are Headed to Heroes of the Storm

By   /   Jul 5, 2016

Heroes of the Storm developer Blizzard has shared a new video showing off two characters who will appear in the game.

Heroes of the Storm New Characters

The two upcoming characters are from World of Warcraft and Diablo. Gul’dan from World of Warcraft will arrive with a ‘Fear’ ability that will affect enemies in a small area-of-effect.

Auriel from Diablo, on the other hand, will have a powerful vertical attack that will not only stun enemies in a straight line, but also knock them back.

In addition to Auriel and Gul’dan reveal, Blizzard has also confirmed new skins for both the characters. Aside from skins for Auriel and Gul’dan, existing heroes including Arthas, Johanna, and Li-Ming will also get skins.

The video – attached above – also shows a total of five new mounts. As for the roll out date, we do not have something concrete at the moment, but Blizzard wrote on Battle.Net that two paragons of light and darkness will arrive in Heroes of the Storm in near future:
