The latest update for Blizzard's free to play MOBA, Heroes of the Storm, has hit the servers and quite a few changes were added. First, Sylvanas Windrunner has joined the fray and is now available in the "Try Me" section of the game's store.
Usually, new heroes are a big deal in each patch, and on this front Sylvanas is no slouch, but when that patch also includes a new battleground, a new hero level cap, and a new Team League option, heroes can kind of get lost in the extensive patch notes.
The hero level cap has been raised from 10 to 20 and new rewards have been added for both hero level and player level mile markers. The Tomb of the Spider Queen battleground has also been released for all game modes. This new, three lane map allows teams to gather gems and turn them into the Spider Queen to summon Webweavers to wreak havoc on enemy forces in all lanes.
For those gamers that want to team up with friends, the new Team League option is worth checking out. You have to be player level 40 and own at least 10 heroes to create or join a team, but once created, your dedicated group can compete with other dedicated groups of similar skill level in ranked competition.
Check out the full patch notes for the full breakdown and Sylvanas' skill set.
