I think a lottt of these are just 'just in case' sound kits if they ever want to include the heroes in question.

Some of them, though, like Mengsk have had actual kits at certain points. And then Varimathras is just a given with the history of Dreadlords and whatnot.

One thing to consider is who voices these characters and why they might be recording new VO.

If it's a character who's actively appearing in a Blizzard game that's in production, it makes sense for them to record "just in case" lines for them. But if they got a VO to make a trip down to their recording studio JUST for HOTS, I'd say there's a bigger chance of them being made into a hero.

Seems silly to include a dragon in a non cannon non dragon form rather than a form that's always been shown as a dragon, that can't turn into a dragon... Or use any of said dragons iconic dragon abilities...Doesn't it

The last time devs mentioned him in 2014 was that he may be a boss on a map.

Azmodan is a hero. I think size being an issue is really... not a problem.

So guys, which heroes are still "missing" in your opininon?

Both in terms of gameplay and their game representatives? Like Rexxar is first ranged warrior, will more come? Greymane being a finisher etc.

I still want my gnome and troll representatives

Azmodan is pretty huge and they scaled him down a fair bit.

Deathwing would have to be big, but I think he's doable. I wouldn't really care to see him, but I definitely don't want to play as human/elf versions of the Dragon Aspects.

Quote:

I'm old school. The main ones I think are missing are all the WC3 heroes they've hinted at.

Varimathras, Maiev, Cairne/Baine, Grom and/or the Blademaster, Vol'jin, Kel'thuzad, Lady Vashj.

Then there's some key Diablo heroes: the Wizard, the D2 heroes, Mephisto, Baal, Andariel and Duriel, Maltheal, Imperius, Auriel...

StarCraft... I guess Arcturus Mengsk and Fenix. Could maybe make a case for Stukov. I'd like to see Alarac, but I don't think he's 'missing'. Same with Vorazun. I think the new co-op heroes you can kind of make a case for (i.e. Swann and techie Protoss guy).

Gelbin and his flying gyrocopter is pretty much essential.

Feel free to post here as you wish. I'll be updating the original post as time goes on. On that note, time to remove Greymane from the list

WoWhero seems pretty interesting. Would it be like one of the WoW classes or just some adventurer joke hero with quest-oriented abilities? If it's the second then meh.
