    In the shop, skins have their cost in shards or blizzard bucks iirc.
    Blizzard bucks is currency that is used for micro-transactions, like buying heroes, bundles, lootboxes, skins, etc.

As for Azmodan and Gul'dan, they obviously don't even look remotely similar.
    I guess i am missing the point, i've been thinking that he was saying that Nova and Widowmaker have too similar kits to exist in HotS (which is obviously not true).
    Yeah, if you approach it from the "crossover skin" side (like Nova/D2Amazon, Illidan/Shan'do, Malfurion/Betrayer, Tyrande/Warden) side - yeah, this one doesn't fall in this category, it distinctively says that it's "widowmaker" skin (or does it? I'm 100% sure blizzard dropped an emergency pillow somewhere sp they can retcon this shit and say "hey, this skin just makes her look this way, not to be her lololol"). But, we also just couple of months ago had Guldan release, while Azmodan have a literal "AzGuldan" skin, you can argue that "it doesn't look like Guldan enough to matter", but you can't expect a whole remodel of a character for this purpose. We also have Muradin/Magni skin, which is literal reskin or Muradin into a Magni (implying that we won't see Magni in HotS, but again - case of Uther telling us "not to think too much into it", and case of AzmoGuldan... I wouldn't be sure that we won't see Widowmaker in game, it already looked like blizzard "shoots itself in a foot" by releasing these skins (not crossover ones, but Magni, Widow and Guldan), implying that we won't see these heroes, then they changed their mind and now it's confusing as fuck.

    Blizzard said that it's highly unlikely she'll be added to Hots because of the similarity between her and Nova.

    meh I think her kit can be expanded and diversified enough with a bit of ingenuity

    This is incorrect. You can't buy skins of your choosing with gems(the currency "blizzard bucks" as you refer) but only featured items. So basically if you want a particular skin you will either have to wait for it to be on the featured items list that changes weekly or you need to buy it with shards.

    Probably that's the case, i rarely buy skins, literally the only one i was interested in was the-only-good-one for Zarya and i was able to buy it via BlizzBucks. Most likely because it was a bundle, but oh well.

    Yeah, in case of not being able to buy desired items with money it's kinda sucks

    Only one question remain...

    WHERE IS WAVENAROS SKIN?! SUUUUUURF INSECT!
    The train is broken, never reached his destination anyway.

    And Azmodan has Guldan skin. As well as Nova have Amazon (cassia) skin. I wouldn't cross widowmaker from the charts because nova has this skin.

    Really, Azmodan and Guldan have nothing in common? And Nova with Amazon have nothing in common? Have you even played diablo?
    And saying that Nova and Widowmaker are similar is just laughable, maybe you find Snipers Elite protagonist similar to Nova? Seriously, cloaking psionic covert operatives and brainwashed, genetically modified assassin on 'roids just too similar to exist in one game.
    None of the heroes share any aesthetics, nova and widowmaker are literally the same. Come on now

    TOO SOON! THE TlDE HAS GONE OUT TOO SOON!

    Giant water balloons for his fireball, splash effects everywhere and giant tsunami's flooding the lanes.

    Crap, I'd buy that.

    Sorry but yall got some false equivalence going. Like Azguldan looks NOTHING like gul'dan. He basically exists because they prob dont have a lot of ideas for him.

    They COULD put in magni and widowmaker, but its unlikely they would because instead of wasting dev time on an almost identical hero they'd rather pick someone else.

    Like look at DVA, 2 unit system, 3 ults, boosters, aoe auto attack. While widow and magni COULD be unique it would be better for the game to pick or create hundreds of other characters that bring more to the game
    I grew up Horde, and as a proud orc shaman I cant understand these people. "ooh we blew up your city and killed everyone you care about but thats no reason to be angry" "oh we destroyed your entire country and murdered your son, but get over it" "Oh we invade foreign countries and melt, torture and mind control our victims but the Alliance were negligent and accidentally sent Tauren into dangerous territory. THEY are the evil ones" The players hate hypocrites more than murderers

    Don't count on this as I am not entirely sure, but I think I remember Kaelaris mentioning some 'special reveal' on final day of Mid-Season Brawl.

    Which is tomorrow.

    A leak for a hero today would be super soon? Unless there's a new hero coming with the summer skins already, in that case it makes perfect sense since we'll be on schedule for a PTR today.

    Edit: Actually, a new hero announcement would make no sense since the in development video for the new hero would have just contained the summer skins aswell. Still curious what we'll see announced though.
