The latest patch to Heroes of the Storm includes a celebration of the Lunar Festival 2017, including new skins, bundles, and special event quests. During the festival, players that haven’t already completed the Rooster Race quest have a chance that the rooster will appear in their team’s starting area.
Players can collect a list of required items before the time runs out, players will successfully complete the rooster race. After 25 successful attempts, players will unlock the Lunar Rooster portrait and the Lunar Rooster mount.
New sandbox custom games are also available, including a new version of the Cursed Hollow that allows players to use “cheats” selected from the cheat menu appearing on the left side of the screen. These cheats enable players to set the game speed, toggle minions, reset structures, set the team’s level, and more.
The shadowy rogue Valeera Sanguinar also joins the hero roster. Many of her abilities can earn Combo Points, up to three of which can be spent with her finisher, the Eviscerate ability, dealing increased damage for each Combo Point stored.
She has three standard abilities, and three abilities that can only be executed while in stealth. Valeera also has a pair of heroic abilities, both designed to use as reactions to enemy attacks, reducing their affectiveness and giving her a chance to control the situation.
This update also includes new hero, ability, and talent art, shop bundles, mounts, skins, UI updates, and a lot of changes to existing heroes. The full list can be found over at battle.net.
