And, if we're being completely honest, he's the most interesting character to join the Nexus in a while. Well, since the last Diablo hero. And that axe guy from WarcCraft II. Okay, so we're a bit biased! But, as Lucio's abilities are transferred almost verbatim from Overwatch to Heroes of the Storm, his AoE healing and speed boosts should prove to be quite the asset for any team. Which you can see in full in the new Lucio spotlight video.
Check it out.
Overwatch support hero, Lúcio, is now available to play in Heroes of the Storm! He brings with him his Wall Ride ability, making it possible to traverse impassable terrain and walk through the enemy team. His basic abilities include Soundwave, which allows him to deal damage to an area, and knock enemies back. He also has crossfade, an ability that can passively heal or speed boost himself and surrounding allies. Lúcio’s first Heroic Ability lets him shield all nearby allies for six seconds with Sound Barrier, just as he does in Overwatch. He also has a secondary Heroic Ability, Reverse Amp. This new skill allows him to hurt enemy heroes for 4 seconds with his Crossfade track, causing Healing Boost to inflict damage, and Speed Boost to slow their movement speed by 45%.
The addition of Lucio also signals the start of the "For Azeroth" event where teaming up with friends will unlock sweet in-game loot for both Heroes of the Storm and World of Warcraft.
