Once Malthael left Heaven, he decided to join Heroes of the Storm Nexus. Blizzard has announced this, noting that Malthael is in current development together with new skins, mount, and more of his assets.
Knowing that adding new Hero content and additions to the Nexus, Malthael seems to be the right choice. Malthael will come as an assassin in Heroes of the Storm. His damage and survivability is decent, carrying a “difficult to play” title, as its complexity.
For a better and more advanced presentation on what’s about to come in Heroes of the Storm, including Malthael, Blizzard released a short trailer and you can find it below. This is not a Hero Spotlight, instead, it’s a video on what’s currently under development and ready for release with the next update. You can check the video below:
Malthael’s Heroic and Primary Abilities, Trait
Coming from Diablo, Malthael will own the following two Heroic abilities:
Tormented Souls: Gain 20 Armor and unleash a torrent of souls, continually applying Reaper’s Mark to nearby enemies for 4 seconds.
Last Rites: Apply a death sentence to an enemy Hero that, after 2 seconds, deals damage equal to 50% of their missing Health, Repeatable quest: Enemies killed while under the effect of Last Rites, permanently reduce its cooldown by 5 seconds, to a minimum of 15 seconds.
On the other side of the window, we got Malthael’s Primary Abilities and Trait.
Soul Rip: Extract the souls of nearby enemies afflicted by Reaper’s Mark, dealing 100 damage and healing Malthael for 44 per target hit. Heroic targets heal Malthael for an additional 3% of the Hero’s maximum Health.
Wraith Strike: Instantly teleport through an enemy afflicted by Reaper’s Mark, dealing 59 damage and refreshing Reaper’s Mark.
Death Shroud: After 0.25 seconds, unleash a wave of dark mist that applies Reaper’s Mark to enemies it hits.
Reaper’s Mark: Basic Attacks afflict non-Structure targets with Reaper’s Mark for 4 seconds. Marked enemies are revealed and take damage equal to 2.5% of their maximum Health every 1 second.
After D.Va joined the Nexus, it’s time for a refreshment welcome of Malthael, a new Hero coming from Diablo.
