Rehgar joins Heroes of the Storm

Rehgar Earthfury, the Orc Shaman of Warcraft, is the latest character to join Blizzard's MOBA.


A storm is brewing and his name is Rehgar Earthfury. The Orc Shaman from the Warcraft universe is the latest support character to join the growing roster for Blizzard's Heroes of the Storm and he brings with him his intense rage and ancient powers to rain down upon his foes.

Rehgar's abilities include Chain Heal, which bounces off allies to heal multiple friends at once; Lightning Shield, which shocks nearby enemies for a small area of effect hit; and Earthbind Totem, which tethers enemies near it to prevent them from escaping.

Rehgar's Heroic Abilities will likely affect those standing near him. Bloodlust will temporarily increase his attack and speed, as well as the attack and speed of nearby allies. Meanwhile, Ancestral Healing will greatly heal the health of a selected ally.

For more on Rehgar, be sure to check out his bio on the Heroes of the Storm website.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

        Yes, I'm curious to find out if artifacts break the game at all.

      I was excited to play Heroes, but then they announced that shitty artifact system and now I am hesitant on the game.

      Runes were one of the worst features of League of Legends and this sounds like the same shit.

        At least they've acknowledged openly that they have reservations about it. Ultimately it's about driving purchases so I doubt it will get scrapped, but I'm cautiously optimistic that they can make it not too bad. At least it's much simpler than LoL's messy rune pages.
