Diablo's Malthael is coming to Heroes of the Storm

June 01, 2017 1 min read

Diablo is one of the most requested universes for Heroes of the Storm, and now we have another addition to the Nexus -- Malthael from Diablo III. He's an assassin that can sustain himself through healing abilities, as well as teleport and apply marks (Reaper's Mark) to enemies that grants various bonuses. Astute DOTA fans will see some similarities with Necrophos.

Blizzard calls him a "much requested hero," though given that he debuted in earnest for an expansion pack for Diablo III, I'd put him after Baal, Mephisto (one of my personal favorites), and a few others. I haven't played him yet but he seems like a killer solo laner, as he has a Thrall-like ability to sustain himself. His basic attacks also reveal enemies, untalented, which will make him a good counter for quickmatch stealthies, and one of his ultimates is a tank-buster. It's too early to judge but he seems extremely viable day one.

For those who haven't been keeping track, it's been six heroes since we've seen a Warcraft entry. Before that there were five Warcraft characters in a row. No timeline was given for Malthael, but since D.Va arrived quite a while ago (it's been nearly a month) he should hit the game soon. I hope he has some good pre-game banter with Tyrael.
