Heroes of the Storm adds Chromie in latest patch

It's about time.

5

We knew she was coming, but Dragons like to make a grand entrance. So without further ado, Heroes of the Storm has added Chromie in its latest patch.

The bronze dragon, which is classified as an artillery assassin, uses her Timewalker trait to gain abilities one level ahead of others. She uses abilities like Sand Blast, Dragon's Breath and Time Trap, with her heroics being Slowing Sands and Temporal Loop.

Of course, the rather large patch also adds plenty of fixes and updates. Matchmaking has been tweaked for high-ranking players, new art has been added, and changes have been made to the UI interface and sound. Also, talents have been balanced a bit, so be sure to look over tha changes to know what might have affected your chosen hero. 

Also, if you used a lot of stuns, they have been nerfed a bit, so you will need to adjust your playstyle accordingly.

          Im enjoying her Q build. Dragon's Breath hits hard but the cooldown is rough if you miss.

            True, but usually knocks out cover from minions.

        Hotslogs has her at a 30% win rate in Hero League. Doesn't improve much on skill, either.

        Hotslogs isn't that inaccurate and Chromie's not the type of hero who will see a huge bump in win rate as people figure out how to play with and against her. Her abilities hit hard, but her lack of utility and long string of really hard counters makes her pretty crappy in QM & HL.

        I think she'll see play in the competitive scene, though.
