Everyone’s favorite Blood Elf is currently being added to the Heroes of the Storm line up as the free to play MOBA from Blizzard receives its update today. Kael’thas Sunstrider enters the fray as an assassin type hero able to dish out a ton of damage in a sneaky way to cover their lack of survivability.

Rating a 7 out of 10 on Blizzard’s “Complexity” meter, Kael’thas brings an ability set to the Nexus that specializes in damage over time and area of effect spells. Adding in a single target stun (that can be made multi-target through Kael’thas’s trait) and the power of a swooping Phoenix, enemies should stay spread out when attempting to take Kael’thas down.

Today’s patch also bring a myriad of changes, updates, and bug fixes to Heroes of the Storm. Be sure to check out the list of UI changes in the patch notes as some things will have likely changed since the last time you logged in.

Heroes of the Storm is set to officially release on June 2nd.
