Wow, Lana’s pun game is 11/10.
Hahaha – SILHOUETTE CONSISTENCY, MY DUDE.
You can learn more about Orphea and the relic here!
Long story short, it’s a relic that houses the power of her ancestry that she uses to bolster her own magic.
You are finding the struggles that the pet name gave us during development, hahahaha
Considering the nature of the relic, that’s rather thematically appropriate, actually.
Plus, I think we could all use a little ‘moe’ magic.
I mean, there’s a whole ability named Chomp, so there are files a plenty, my friend.
Technically, no, considering the ‘monster’ is a really a manifestation of Orphea’s deepest, subconscious feelings – but throughout development, everyone thought of that lil’ buddy as ‘chomp’.
This was a really great thread to read - I genuinely appreciate the sentiments from both sides of the fence, here.
For those of you who are already as excited about Orphea as we are - that is so awesome! Can’t wait to see what power she has in your hands!
For those of you who are apathetic to lore and find yourself on the fence, that’s cool too! I encourage you to try her. I think she is one of the most fun heroes I’ve ever played. Kyle did an amazing job designing her kit for a variety of playstyles, and heavily took into consideration not only how it feels to play as her, but how it feels to play against her. She’s super approachable to pick up and get going with, but I think you’ll find that to be as much of a beast as you see in our videos, that bar is much higher than you think it is.
For those of you who vehemently hate what we’ve done here, you know what? That’s cool too. We have no shortage of amazing characters from our histor...Read more
Our next Heroes of the Storm patch has just hit the Public Test Realm and will be available for playtesting until November 12. As always, if you encounter any bugs during your PTR play sessions, please stop by the PTR Bug Report forum to let us know about your experiences.
The fate of countless realms hangs in the balance, and it may just be up to Orphea, Heir of Raven Court and daughter of the Raven Lord, to put a stop to her father’s dark plans. Secure a BlizzCon Virtual Ticket and aid in the battle for the Nexus, Heroes!
Available in the first major patch after BlizzCon 2018 (which runs from November 2-3,) we are upgrading the Hero collection of all BlizzCon attendees and Virtual Ticket holders with our first Nexus-born Hero, Orphea!
NOTE: Orphea will not unlock for players on the PTR, but will be available when this update hits the live game servers.
In addition to unlocking the Heir of Raven Court, all BlizzCon attendees and Virtual Ticket holders can sink their teeth into a set of exclusive Ne...Read more
The only thing that’s constant in the Nexus is change. As mentioned at BlizzCon 2018, in the coming months we’re bringing you gameplay and matchmaking changes, feature updates, and a whole new way to earn experience with Boosts! Read on for more information.
One of our major goals with the 2019 updates is to implement gameplay changes that encourage closer matches and avoid the dreaded “snowball” effect. After careful design, implementation, and iteration, we felt that this best way to accomplish this goal was to slow down the “snowball effect” just as it starts to come into play. In short, we’re changing the way we reward players who prioritize push strategies to gain experience and power advantages. While we still want to reward players for pushing, we’re focused on removing the direct power advantage we give to these teams and will instead reward them with a strategic adv...Read more
That’s a great question.
I’ll bring this back to the team, thank you for the suggestion.
Lots of fun ideas in this thread – it’s making my day!
Thanks for posting.
This week’s Heroes Brawl is Braxis Outpost! A single-lane battleground set in the Koprulu Sector, it will be up to your team to survive in the lane and take down the enemy core, without the aid of Hearthstone or their Hall of Storms. Good luck, have fun!
