Heroes of the Storm welcomes the World Breaker as Deathwing is now officially live. The newest genre-defying character has joined the fight and comes with a unique playstyle befitting of an iconic hero. Deathwing is so powerful that he has two forms, each having their own sets of abilities.

It was back in October when Heroes of the Storm first announced the arrival of this World Breaker. Fans of the Warcraft series are sure to remember Deathwing as a legendary dragon. In addition to being known as the World Breaker, he is also called the Aspect of Death, Black Scourge, and Destroyer, among many names. In Warcraft lore, Deathwing was one of the five Dragon Aspects driven mad by the Old Gods who turned against the other Aspects. The other Aspects later defeated him, forcing a retreat. Deathwing eventually returned in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, which resulted in the Shattering.

So what can Deathwing offer to Heroes of the Storm? His basic abilities are:

  • TRAIT: Aspect of Death (D)
    • Deathwing is fitted with 4 Armor Plates that give 10 Armor each.
    • Each 25% Health lost causes Deathwing to lose a plate.
    • Plates are restored when Dragonflight is used.
      • The amount restored is based on how much health Deathwing has when landing.
    • Deathwing is also a mighty Dragon Aspect who is permanently Unstoppable and deals 100% additional damage to Heroes.
      • However Deathwing views his allies with contempt and is immune to any friendly effects.
  • Dragonflight (Z)
    • After three (3) seconds Deathwing flies to the sky, becomes immune to all effects, and gains 2.5% Health per second.
    • When Deathwing deals or takes damage, Dragonflight is put on a four (4) second cooldown.
    • While airborne:
      • Destroyer (Q)
        • Deathwing slams down to the ground and deals damage to enemies in the area while gaining access to Destroyer abilities Incincerate and Onslaught.
      • World Breaker (W)
        • Deathwing slams down to the ground and deals damage to enemies in the area while gaining access to World Breaker abilities Lava Burst and Earth Shatter.
  • Molten Flame (Q)
    • Deathwing breathes a stream of flame and deals damage every second.
    • Drains energy each second.
  • HEROIC ABILITY: Cataclysm (R)
    • Deathwing flies across the target path, deals damage on impact, and leaves scorched ground which persists for a short time, damaging enemies.

In changing between his two forms, this affects his (W) and (E) abilities.Tthese are:

  • As Destroyer
    • Incinerate (W)
      • Deathwing flaps his wings and deals damage to nearby enemies.
    • Onslaught (E)
      • Lunge in a direction dealing damage to enemies and slowing them. Deathwing bites enemies at the end of the lunge and deals additional damage.
  • As World Breaker
    • Lava Burst (W)
      • After a short delay, Deathwing deals damage to all enemies in the area and creates a pool of magma that persists for a short time, damaging and slowing enemies.
    • Earth Shatter (E)
      • Create a fissure that deals damage to enemies and stuns them.

There's no question that Deathwing is all set to bring big changes to Heroes of the Storm. Hurry, go to your Nexus, and take control of this powerhouse.
