Just like in Overwatch, he can buff speed or heal nearby characters, and can attack with all the same abilities. In Heroes of the Storm he doesn’t need to reload, and one of his heroic abilities, Reverse Amp, nerfs enemies while buffing allies within range.

A new event, For Azeroth, has also commenced, and will run until March 15. The event is detailed on the game’s site, but the long and short of it is that complete 15 Heroes of the Storm matches with a friend, both of you playing as Warcraft Heroes, before the event concludes, you’ll unlock some in-game items. In World of Warcraft, you’ll get a Primal Flamesaber Mount, and in Heroes of the Storm you’ll get a 10-day Stimpack and a Flames of Judgement Charger Mount.

Various other changes have been made as well, as detailed in the full patch notes.

Several of the characters are getting slight tweaks, although the changes made to Murky are by far the most significant. If you’re an avid player, it’s worth giving the notes a look.
