    Stukov - Melee Support - Starcraft Hero


    Alexei Stukov had a hard life, and an even harder death. He has been betrayed, shot into space, resurrected and infested, almost cured, and then experimented upon as the infestation returned. Now, his infestation spreads within the Nexus.

    Basic Abilities

    Trait - Bio-Kill Switch
    Cooldown: 16 seconds
    Activate to detonate all of Stukov’s Viruses. Each Healing Pathogen heals its target for 500 health, and each Weighted Pustule does 100 damage and Slows its target by 70% for 2 seconds. Can be cast while channeling Lurking Arm.

    Q - Healing Pathogen
    30 Mana
    Cooldown: 10 seconds
    Infest an allied Hero with a Healing Pathogen that heals the target for 240 Health over 4.5 seconds. Healing Pathogens can spread to a nearby allied Hero every 0.75 seconds, and a single Healing Pathogen can spread to each allied Hero 1 time.

    W - Weighted Pustule
    50 Mana
    Cooldown: 10 seconds
    Hurl a pustule that impacts all enemy Heroes in its path, dealing 20 damage and Slowing by 5%, increasing to 50% over 3 seconds. Deals an additional 80 damage upon expiring or being removed.

    E - Lurking Arm
    60 Mana
    Cooldown: 8 seconds
    Channel at a target location, creating an area that Silences enemies inside and deals 144 damage per second to them. Deals 50% reduced damage to non-Heroes. Does not cost Mana while Channeling, and lasts until canceled or interrupted.

    R1 - Massive Shove
    50 Mana
    Cooldown: 20 seconds
    Extend Stukov's arm. If it hits an enemy Hero, they are rapidly shoved until they collide with terrain, taking 200 damage. Stukov gains 50 Armor while shoving an enemy.

    R2 - Flailing Swipe
    100 Mana
    Cooldown: 80 seconds
    Swipe 3 times in front of Stukov over 1.75 seconds, dealing 50 damage to enemies hit and knocking them away. Each swipe is larger than the previous.

    Hes not really a tank in Starcraft so I'm 99.99999999999993 % sure he wont be a tank here.

    My guess is he will be like a ranged version of Xul with infested terrans instead of skeletons.

    specialist maybe? it would be cool to have a buff type hero, that focuses on utility.

    Not expecting it, but might be a tank. Think Dehaka, minus the global and slower; but with more regeneration and some kind of summons.

    Awww... I saw the teaser mentioned extreme regen, I was hoping he'd have some kind of ridiculous regen pass and we'd finally get a new tank.

    Guess the wait goes on.

    He does have a regen aura but idk if they would turn him into a Lucio type or just give him an extreme regen ability.
    Heres his abilites in SC2:

    http://starcraft.wikia.com/wiki/Alex...(StarCraft_II)

    I mean I guess with Carapace they might beable to make him a tank.

    Heres his Co-Op Commander skills :
    http://starcraft.wikia.com/wiki/Alex...o-op_Missions)

    I mean they could really take him in any direction.

    For the record, he's actually a melee support, but he can take a talent to become ranged.

    kinda sad we will no longer see master skins
    DVA got one as iassume they made her then went "wait we dont need to make master skins anymore"
    the master skins were allways a "i like this hero but i want more" didnt change up the style too much, just added more that made them look cooler sometimes, sucks to see them go
