The hero will be available to try out in the Public Test Realm until April 23.
The latest patch for Heroes of the Storm is now available on the Public Test Realm. This patch brings the new hero Deckard Cain, so you can try him out in the Public Test Realm until April 23. Apart from adding the new hero, the new patch also brings a number of bug fixes, UI improvements, and more.
Deckard Cain is a hero who is most effective when paired up with another hero. He doesn’t do much damage, but he makes up for this with some great support abilities. His hero trait is called Fortitude of the Faithful and grants him 10 bonus armor and increases his basic abilities’ recharge by 50% when he is near an ally.
This shows that he was designed to be played in cooperation with other heroes. Deckard’s two heroic abilities are Stay Awhile and Listen which puts everyone within range to sleep, and Lorenado which is a tornado that knocks back anyone who comes too close. The hero’s primary abilities like Healing Potion also make him a useful healer.
You can check out the full patch notes on the official website. Heroes of the Storm is now available on PC.
