New Eternal Conflict content has been announced at E3!

Image title
As a part of E3, this year PC Gamer hosted PC Gaming show. At this show many developers from different companies had a small window of time to reveal important news, or content about their projects. Blizzard was represented by Dustin Browder and Chris Sigaty.
They talked about Heroes and StarCraft 2. The trailer for the Eternal conflict, narrated by Decard Cain, exposed two new heroes, which are coming with the arrival of the event. Heroes are King Leoric, the warrior from Diablo universe, that is rumored to be undying and monk - first ever Diablo support. While monk is still being in the phase of development, Skeleton king seems to be almost finished as developers showcased all his abilities. Monk and Leoric are only part of the upcoming content, the trailer, which showed us these two heroes, also featured treasure goblin, at the end, which is rumored to spawn before the opening of the gates, and grant the killer some in game gold and portrait! Check the videos below to see Leoric in action and whole press conference.

Johanna price reduction

Image title
Rule of two weeks is finally applied to Johanna - usually Blizzard lowers the price of the hero to 10 000 gold after two weeks of hero release. This shop feature has been presented in Nexus for a while now, probably since Alpha. So, if you don’t want to waste 5k gold it’s better to wait for two weeks and buy hero for 10k.

New weekly sale!

Image title
Sale of this week lasts from 16 to 23 June and features 4 different skins, apart from 2 heroes. First you have standard skins for Uther the Ligthbringer (powerful support from WarCraft universe, has been around since forever) and Diablo the Lord of Terror (recently fallen of meta, thanks to new patch, warrior from 
unicorn Diablo universe).
Other than that, sale offers 4 skins for half the price:

Kandy King Muradin is an epic skin that changes hero appearance and abilities. Most noticeable change is his ultimate ability. Muradin becomes made of chocolate!
Lurkablo Diablo is an epic skin that features different look and voice over for Diablo. I tried really hard to understand what he is saying, but he is damn murloc!
Stars and Stripes Raynor is a rare skin that offers different appearance for the hero.
Lastly Medic Uther - one of the most epic skins in the game. Changes not only the look of hero, but also gives awesome voice over and amazing ability animations!

Quiz from Blog of the Storm features team names from NA July Open Road to Blizzcon

Image title
Inspired by hilarious team names like “Appleburgers” or “Draggin Knights” Blog of the Storm created funny quiz. Quiz will throw team names and Portland indie band names, and you’ll have to guess which one is band, and which one is Heroes of the Storm team name. Believe me they are very hard to differ!

Nexus Weekly#7

Image title
As always, Nexus Weekly starts from jokes about Free Hero Rotation. This time, Blizzard was very generous and included both Kael’thas and Sgt. Hammer in rotation. Expect some unintended counter picks in Quick Matches.
Next up is statistics about current top hero. And it’s none other than Brightwing. Nothing surprising here, promote buff and not fixed bug with her trait, that heals her double the intended amount, makes her superb 1v1 laner, as well very strong split-pusher, not to mention her healing and disabling capabilities.
Team ASH will be featured as team that caught attention of the author and he has all the rights to do so. Recently, guys from ASH have shown amazing performance and are currently on an 11-4 record for June.
Weekly article finishes with spoilers about Game of Thrones, in the skins section, and Belrogfan as featured streamer of the week.

Podcast Heroes#8

Image title
Almost one hour long podcast will feature discussion about the recently announced, at E3, new heroes, that come with eternal conflict event, or how the developers started to call it out, at E3, first HOTS expansion. For me, it sounds a bit weird, game just launched and you already have the expansion. But let’s get back to the podcast. Apart from new exciting news about new heroes hosts will discuss Johanna, her builds, play styles, and talents. You will also hear about how the guys are doing in terms of their rank climbing and thoughts about their recent games.
