Uh, Novazon and Amazon aren't really the same thing. The Novazon is a skin for an existing hero that plays nothing like an Amazon. The Amazon hero is a javazon specifically to avoid overlap between her, the other archers and the Novazon skin aesthetically.

Wizard's got plenty of spells that basically do the same thing, though. I mean you've got like... Time Warp I guess.

But between Medivh, Jaina, Kael and Li Ming... and Chromie, there isn't too much room left for things that would be reasonable in a MobA.

And Probius does kind of step all over Gazlowe. They're very similar in a lot of ways.

The crossbow was a D2 weaponset for the Amazon though, even if some of the spells aren't the same, the notion that the genderflipped versions of the D3 heroes could exist using their altweapons and skills.


Wizard still has shockbolts, electrocute, hydra, etc... he could make an excellent lightning themed caster.


It's not as if they're never going to add more mage-style heroes, there's plenty of design room left.


They're both area-denial champs but the way they interact with their turrets and spells is different.


This feels like thinking butcher wouldn't happen cause stitches already has the hook.

I've only been playing this game for like 5 minutes, but for half a Hanamura match, I thought Amazon!Nova was Cassia and that she got stealth from a talent. It didn't help that she was literally in our faces with Azmodan and Lucio.

Lol I was by myself as Tyrande and I was too distracted calling for help while trying to stun and owl the Azmodan who was melting the towers and unleashing demons.

And I completely forgot Nova even had that skin.

No it's like thinking because the gender-flipped versions are so similar to their gender counterparts that it would be very hard to give them entirely different kits.

And... like... the electric wizard kit just sounds like a mix of some random stuff that'd overlap a ton with existing abilities. The Li Ming kit is much more reflective of what the D3 wizard is and is way more distinct.

Also Kael's Phoenix is basically the ult version of Gazlowe and Probius's turrets already. And that'd basically be how the Hydra would work.

I just think if they're gonna do more distinct Diablo heroes, it'll be the guys from D1 and D2.

I'd be fine with that, although it'd probably lose out on potential cool skin ideas those alternate genders could have themselves.

If they add anymore classic Diablo characters, then I want the Druid and some of the D1 classes. Or some of the villains like Andariel.

Andariel's gonna be interesting to see a modern adaptation of, she's a lot like Kerrigan in her original look.

I am hoping we start getting hints soon. I like d.va, but I am hoping for a big name character.

Anyone has any idea when the new hero will be announced? Reddit seems somewhat silent in that regard.

I would like some old big name characters. Like the Prime Evils, Kelthuzad etc. So the Old Guard fans can be chill when next batch of Overwatch heroes come out

Too bad that there aren't any truly prominent female trolls...

They say two heads are better than one, but this is absolutely NOT the case with Cho'gall. I have yet to win a single match when they're on my team.

Ah, well I could believe it. Him and Anduin are the only Hearthstone heroes missing as of now I think?

Since his last rework he's a pretty good hero. But he's better played as a mage, and requires a lot of coordination from the two people playing the hero. (Trait swapping is essential)

So anyone know what's up with this three-candle thing on the battle.net launcher for HotS? I click it but nothing happens.

Or it could be a kobold

It's a count down to one would assume a hero reveal, every day one of the candles is blown out. As was mentioned above possibly Cain, or another Diablo hero which is the most likely case given the art style. I think it's also possible it might be for Kel'Thuzad.
