Is it bad that I give so little of a shit about Valeera that I actually start caring?

I mean, At least Varian and Ragnaros are the sort of "I don't care that much, but they're cool". Valeera makes Bob look like a well developed hero.

It's another hero that's more emblematic of a popular concept than it is an incredible iconic hero in her own right.

She represents the Rogue class more than anything.

It's just that it's, well, nobody Valeera. I'm a rogue main and I have been for years, and I don't give a shit about her.

A VanCleef or Garona, yes. Maybe even Ravenholdt for a pure rogue's hero (Though an attack that damages the target for 90% of their health maaay need to be nerfed). But Valeera?

Valeera works, because general public knows her. It doesnt matter for them that she has inconsistencies and makes no real sense lore-wise. Its the same crowd that wants Leeroy Jenkins as a Hero, and some even suggest fucking Cow King.

I agree that Vancleef, Garona, Mathias Shaw works much better, but Valeera is a hawt female blood elf in skimpy clothing, so more eye catching.

Wake me up when the pointy-eared humans get night elf or nightborne skins.

Valeera is a fine enough blizzard character that is well suited to be a HOTS character, you nitpicking, contrarian imbeciles.

Those are fighting words! Here are mine, Valeera is a shallow comic book insert with little characterization beyond her addiction, who hasn't done anything roguelike in her life

Fisticuffs at dawn!

Valeera's okay. They're obviously riding the Hearthstone popularity more than anything (most of her quotes are Hearthstone references).

I think visually she's more interesting than Garona would have been, but Garona is more classic.

But that doesn't mean she's not super, super shallow.

I just find it funny that the character whose kit revolves around stealth is dressed in bright crimson.

Because thats so relevant for a moba game.

Valeera is more iconic than Garona will ever be. Deal with it

Played a few games with Zuljin, first game I played I died 14 times but did 150k hero dmg, no one came close lol. Second game only died 3 times and did just a bit less. They aren't related im just saying how I did. Once you can manage your range and using Tazdingo (R) you can really be a great asset to your team. I was able to take down 3 heroes popping that
for those who dont know what his one Ult does
For the next 4 seconds, Zul'jin is Unkillable, and cannot be reduced to less than 1 Health. Taz'dingo!.

I know the lead writer for HotS (yeah, they have a writer!) is actually super enthusiastic about Zul'jin and he's been in the works since my internship in 2012.

They actually have so many irons in the fire that he doesn't remember which heroes have been officially announced or released yet, and he's told me about a lot that're on the upcoming slate by accident.

Good things I hope?

I'm sick so no duel ;(. And I'm not saying she's by any means perfect as a character, but this is blizzard, really decent characters are rare and she's not that bad anyway if you compare with others. Plus it doesn't really matter as long as people know who she is, which they do. People have known her since maybe before TBC hit live(and way before she was made into an actual character) because of artwork, and most people have assumed that she's a rogue since then.

Psh. I dunno about that. If only because Garona was in the film.
