Some sources may not be as concrete as others, but I will mention them here regardless. If you find any information I may have missed feel free to nag me in the comments below...

Not sure if allowed to post here. But here are some of the files that were mentioned.

http://2p.com/11377731_5/Heroes-of-t...-JaminNoob.htm

Aldrius 01-11-2016 03:34 AM

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.

Omacron 01-11-2016 04:07 AM

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

Do you really think Assdan is even close to deedubs in scale?

HoodedMan 01-11-2016 10:10 PM

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 :P

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.

Fear is beautiful.

Erthad 03-03-2016 01:03 PM

I saw a cool idea for a WoW PUG hero

Dwarf Warrior tank, Night Elf Rogue, Human Mage, Draenei priest healer, and Worgen Hunter.

Level 1 talent to kick the Worgen Hunter and replace with a Gnome Warlock.

One ability was target markers putting the WoW Skull above afflicted enemy causing them to take more damage.

When it comes to the Demons in Diablo, then yes, Mephisto was always my favourite too.

That said, I also think he's the most fitting for Heroes at this point. Though I feel he may be a way off because they've said no new Specialists for some time and, IMO, he's got Specialist written all over him. (It's possible he could end up Sin or Support but if they want another Diablo support I'd MUCH prefer Deckard)

Aldrius 03-04-2016 08:17 AM

Too bad none of those banter lines are any good. Sheesh.

...still excited about the Prime Evils and Vashj if these are actual hints of them.

I feel that in-game we need more representation from each franchise.

WoW desperately needs:
A Priest hero
A Rogue hero
A Warlock hero (Gall doesn't really feel like the warlock playstyle so i don't really count him)
A (real) Druid hero (one who shapeshifts, maybe Broll Bearmantle?)
A draenei hero
A gnome hero (would love Gelbin as we have seen him in hints)
A Forsaken hero (I know we have Sylvanas, but she doesn't fit the image of the player character. Might I suggest Nathanos Blightcaller?)

Of the racial heroes we already have represented, I want to see their opposite genders eventually as well cuz hey, diversity never hurt.

SC desperately needs:
Rory Swann - cuz again, diversity (allbeit body shape in this case)
Gabriel Tosh - diversity (pulling the black card on this one, though now that Tracer has a spectre skin too I'm not so sure but a guy can dream, right?)
Alexei Stukov - cuz who does't love russian accents and a dangly carapace lol
Female Protoss - Salendis or Vorazun would do fine in this regard.
Protoss Machinery - we have the Siege Tank for the Terrans, why not Fenix in a Dragoon or someone piloting a Scout would be awesome)

My Diablo list isnt too long cuz most of what I want is already covered or at least hinted at but I can't stress one point enough. While different genders for D3 heroes would diversify it, I feel like there are alot more sources they could pull from first before going that route.

D2 Druid ftw (could give them a traditional worgen skin, more like the feral ones in WotLK than the playable ones in Cataclysm)
Malthael is a must
Zoltun Kulle is an interesting character. Feel he could somehow use Kanai's Cube as an interesting mechanic.

In a nutshell though, I like what we have thus far but I feel we need to diversify the character selection to appeal to how their audiences have peered into their franchises. They see these worlds through the eyes of their characters, do they not?

Or thats my take on it anyway...

Hammerbrew 04-04-2016 03:21 AM

Just talking about StarCraft for a second, I REALLY want SCV (Private something most likely) for Support/Specialist.

His voiceovers in SC2 are some of my favourites and I'd love to see the Heroes take on the skin.

But what about a Probe!

They could warp in pylons and photon cannons.

I'm with hammerbrew on this one. SCV could be a great standalone character. Idk, just my opinion but an SCV could have personality, as its a manned vehicle. A probe? Not so much.

With LotV, I think I'd much rather see a Karax hero with a probe companion perhaps. A movable ally that can summon in pylons and photon cannons, controlled by Karax himself. Little twist like that and it gives it a bit more character. At least thats how I see it

Mutterscrawl 11-01-2016 01:33 PM

Wonder how Symmetra and other Overwatch heroes will translate, Zarya and Tracer kept the same feel more or less

Would you make Reinhardts shield active like a qwe or a trait?

Reapers soulglobes translate well

Bastion would be decent for holding shrines and such

Who do you hope is next?
