Joining all of the other copious announcements today, Heroes of the Storm got in on the fun. Blizzard Entertainment revealed Orphea, a new hero coming to the MOBA. And one cool thing, is that she’s a character exclusive to HotS who was made explicitly for the game..
Her abilities paint her as a mid-range control hero, with strong single-target damage. Orphea’s strengths include damage, zone control, sustain, and dueling; her weaknesses include poke and crowd control attacks. Her Death Magic abilities are potent, and it will give any support DPS player a lot of fun combos and timings to experiment with.
