Another Blizzard icon has hit the battlefield in Heroes of the Storm. Jaina Proudmoore will be available to play in the game’s technical Alpha as soon as the servers come back online following today’s maintenance.

With a toolset aimed at damage and slowing, Jaina comes equipped with an arsenal of abilities, almost all of which apply “Chill” to targets to not only slow their movement but also increase the amount of damage done to each target.


  • Frost Bolt (Q)
  • Fires a bolt that deals damage and Chills the target.

  • Blizzard (W)
  • Creates a storm of ice at target location, damaging and Chilling enemies.

  • Cone of Cold (E)
  • Deals damage in a cone and Chills targets.


  • Frost Bite
  • Your Abilities Chill targets, slowing them and causing them to take increased damage.

    Heroic Abilities

  • Summon Water Elemental (R)
  • Summons a powerful Water Elemental.

  • Ring of Frost (R)
  • Creates a freezing ring that roots and damages enemies.

    In addition to Jaina, the patch also implements a number of emote and art changes, balancing updates, and much more.

    The full patch notes are available on the official Heroes of the Storm site.
