Deathwing is coming to Heroes of the Storm, according to datamined voice lines


Deathwing, leader of the black dragonflight and shatterer of Azeroth during the events of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, is almost certainly joining Heroes of the Storm sometime soon. 

Fancy getting in to Blizzard’s MOBA? Here are the best Heroes of the Storm heroes for beginners.

Redditor bran76765 dug into the latest build of Heroes of the Storm to discover that Alexstrasza, the game’s newest character, has voice lines whose file names mention Neltharion, which is Deathwing’s proper name. As a dragon herself and an affiliate of the rival red dragonflight, Alex and Deathwing have plenty of history. For proof, here’s a screengrab of the voice lines on Imgur.

The question of timing is still an open one. With BlizzCon’s dual announcement of Alexstraza and Hanzo, we know the latter is coming next. It’s likely that Deathwing will follow, especially since he has been a popular fan request for a while, but it’s not absolutely certain.
