    She looks super fun. Will probably be high skill floor though with all the skill shots.

    This hero gives me LoL and mordern HoN wibes. That is a really bad thing.

    ..and while I liked Orphea as the first Nexus hero, she has a bunch of story. This one has nothing and that is desturbing me.

    Didn't LoL have a huge problem with mobility creep making old character's kits invalid? Seems like the same is happening in HotS. She does look like she might be fun to play though.

    Also what is up with that dislike ratio on that video on Youtube?

    So this is making me wonder. If they're bringing in a Nexus-specific hero now, what sort of insanity have they planned for Blizzcon?

    Who the hell?

    Like...just a totally random character out of nowhere? That's really bizarre. Orphea was cool because she was set up a good while back as an original hero but this is just some random generic character from absolutely nowhere.

    When the production rate of new characters is going to be extremely low, it's kinda hard to look at this and not get a little annoyed. It's a shame because her abilities actually look really cool, the character themself is just forgettable though.

    I think a lot of people just wanted a big WoW character like Onyxia or Azshara.

    The swinging mechanic seems cool but otherwise looks like a generic kit. I'll have to see when I get to try it.

    Which seems silly considering they'd probably announce a hero of that magnitude at Blizzcon.

    I'm genuinely curious.

    If this character didn't have the Blizzard/Heroes title associated with her, would anyone actually care about her?

    I'm really disappointed.

    Ignoring the fact that this yet another OC donut steel being added to a game where the entire premise is playing as classic Blizzard characters (and we STILL don't have Blackthorne as a playable character)...

    All the promotional artwork for this character has her with the chainsword in her right hand yet the in-game model wields it in her left. I personally find that hilarious.

    she is a black wamen tho

    Yeah Blizzard kinda forgot that the only reason people are playing hots are the blizzard characters.

    Meh, if I wanted uninspired OCs I would play LoL.

    Her kit looks interesting.

    This character could have easily been a Zanildari, had nothing about her character would change.

    But yeah, pretty freaking clear Blizzard is out of touch with the HOTS audience.

    Getting an Overwatch vibe from this one, if anything... just me?

    No point in being upset over a hero release, I guess. She atleast looks fun to play, even though I agree that it's another pretty mobile character, which the game doesn't really need. The main reason I'd really be salty over this is that once HotS goes, she'll never be used again. Compared to most othe characters who might pop up again in some way, shape or form. Unless we somehow get another Blizzardverse game, ofcourse.

    I think the Nexus Original, bring them the opportunity to create unique heroes and save sets of abilities discarded because they dont fit any role.

    They also use less resources because they dont need to invest researching for abilities to fit the hero. Lets say for example, that instead of Qhira we got Harrison Jones. Many abilities may have been ideal for Harrison Jones but you would convert him into the deadliest hunter and not into the relic explorer (according to WoW lore).

    I'm mostly disappointed that even with the choice to use a Nexus original... they didn't even utilise any existing Nexus lore.

    Like, the ENTIRE character has come out of nowhere, from a brand new "world" that hasn't been mentioned anywhere before. Orphea tied into the Raven Court lore, so that made sense. Qhira has no tie whatsoever to ANY part of established Blizzard/Nexus lore.

    She is, essentially, a LoL character.

    Her kit does look pretty solid though. I'm a fan of heroes being very mobile and sticky if they're melee and not ranged, and Qhira noticeably has a complete lack of wall hop. She can dash TO a wall but not OVER it like Genji/Hanzo

    I can see her being a high-level pick based on the fact she has mobility, CC (TWO stuns) and an immunity on her E.
