Heroes of the Storm: il rework di Arthas che non vedremo mai

Durante le feste uno degli ex-sviluppatori di Heroes of the Storm, David Warner, ha condiviso su reddit una bozza del rework di Arthas annunciato ai tempi d’oro di Heroes.

Infatti Arthas è sempre stato un discreto personaggio in Heroes of the Storm ma ha subito l’inevitabile power creep degli Eroi tank e combattenti successivi, spesso più forti in fatto di utility e resistenza. Questo rework avrebbe dovuto ridare dignità al Re dei Lich, rendendolo nuovamente una macchina da guerra inarrestabile e con nuovi strumenti per rallentare i propri nemici.

Una delle modifiche più interessanti è sicuramente la trasformazione dell’Armata dei Morti in una Eroica a cariche, dando la possibilità di decidere se evocare un paio di ghoul per curarsi in emergenza oppure aspettare ed evocare l’intero esercito.

Se volete sentire prepotentemente la nostalgia per il gioco, potete recuperare qui sotto l’interezza dei cambiamenti proposti per Arthas, che quasi sicuramente non vedremo mai concretizzati. Come il suo modello aggiornato, d’altronde.
