Less than two weeks ago, Blizzard began testing a new Hero on the Heroes of the Storm PTR. The Nexus-born character — named Qhira the Iresian Bounty Hunter — is a melee assassin armed with a chain-sword. The sword can be used for pretty much everything from a grappling hook to get around the field to mowing down enemies like a giant weed eater.

As of the game’s most recent update, Qhira and her cool sword are available on the game’s live server. The update also includes Storm League – Season 1 content as well as general bug fixes, new cosmetics, and more. A full rundown on the update — including details on Qhira’s kit can be found in the most recent patch notes on the Heroes site.

QuintLyn is a long-time lover of all things video game related will happily talk about them to anyone that will listen. She began writing about games for various hobby sites a little over ten years ago and has taken on various roles in the games community. For the past five years she's been a writer at Gamebreaker TV.
