Nexus Anomaly – Experience Balls

Nexus anomalies are seasonal changes in gameplay that directly affect all game modes Heroes of the Storm impact. These events run throughout the season, so we have time to get feedback. Once we have evaluated it, some of these anomalies may become permanently part of the game, while others may remain just a temporary event.

The first nexus anomaly is here! To make gathering experience more fun and more intuitive, we change the way you're in Heroes of the Storm from servants gathers experience. Players no longer gain experience simply by being near them, but in the future must collect experience balls that drop dying servants.

The Lost Vikings

Values ​​and skills


Comment by the developers: Because experience is now being collected differently, we assume that the Lost Vikings will find it difficult to find room in a team. To help them, we are raising their core values ​​and strengthening Dragon Boat Raid.



Comment by the developers: Mephisto's talents have remained largely unchanged since its release. Many of them are moving about where we imagine them, but some talents and valley entrances had fundamental problems that we can fix with a few changes. We do not want to completely revise the Mephisto you know and love, but he could handle some new builds.
