We learned Blizzard would be adding Gul’dan and Auriel to its Heroes of the Storm roster in the near future. We guess the near future is nearly upon us as the company has just made Warcraft’s Gul’dan available on Heroes of the Storm’s Public Test Realm (PTR).
In addition to Gul’dan being available to play on the PTR, Blizzard is also including some changes to the game, including an expanded roster that includes all previously-released Heroes, aside from the five most recent additions. Changes also includes bonus XP for those who play as Auto-Select in Quick Matches, new portraits, and DirectX 11 support.
To get a taste of Gul’dan and some of the changes coming to Heroes of the Storm, head on over to the PTR to check them out for yourself. But act fast as the PTR will only be available to play up until July 11.

I like how these videos have started to call out some of the character's specific weaknesses, and a few basic strategies.
I wonder if the DX11 upgrade will improve performance. The HotS engine runs very poorly and it could desperately use technical improvements.
