When picking characters from their vast, decades-spanning catalog of games to introduce to the roster of Heroes of the Storm, Blizzard is in no danger of running out of clever options. The latest hero is definitely a fine example of how creative Blizzard can be when selecting their newest heroes. Deckard Cain should be familiar to Diablo fans, he's an ancient scholar who loves to weave a story more than Grandpa Simpson. Now, Deckard will be taking on the role of a support class character in Heroes of the Storm.
Blizzard sent out a press release regarding the character reveal:
"The Loremaster has finally arrived
Deckard's moves are definitely set up for support, his passive trait "Fortitude of the Faithful" gives him a +10 armor boost when near an ally as well as a 50% speed increase on the recharge for his basic moves. He can also throw out up to five healing potions at a time, which can be augmented to refill or turn into super potions depending on the talents players pick. The horadic cube spell will cause an AoE 40% slow-down on enemies and deal them 80 damage. For his heroic abilities, Deckard can unleash a devastating "Lorenado" which sends a whirlwind of literary pain heading the opposing team's way or he can put enemies to sleep with a long-winded story using his "Stay Awhile and Listen" skill.
