Heroes of the Storm’s newest warrior is a familiar face to fans of World of Warcraft and Hearthstone. The half-orc, half-ogre Rexxar will make an appearance in the Nexus soon, and you can check out his abilities now in a preview video from Blizzard.
Rexxar’s always accompanied by his faithful bear pet Misha, and she’s a major part of his offense. With his basic abilities, he can send Misha to ravage and stun foes and then heal when she gets low on health.
His first heroic ability buffs Misha even more, making her larger and increasing her damage output, while his second, Unleash the Boars, spawns a boar for each enemy hero in range, which attacks and slows its target when it hits. Hmm, I wonder where that idea came from?
Rexxar (and Misha) should be available in Heroes of the Storm in the next few weeks.
