Diablo 2’s necromancer is now available in Heroes of the Storm.


Blizzard has released a new patch for Heroes of the Storm that brought more spectator slots, added new cooldown announcement feature, and more.

The update also added a new hero to the roster. That’s the necromancer Xul, from Diablo 2, though his looks has changed a bit.

Xul is a Specialist character with a lot of abilities taken from Diablo 2 such as Corpse Explosion, Poison Nova, and more. Blizzard reckons Xul will be great against heroes with high attack speeds like Raynor, Thrall, and others.
