Welcome to the Nexus!
In this realm between realms, anything is possible! Choose from dozens of legendary Heroes from across the Blizzard pantheon, customize their talents and abilities on the fly, and battle it out on a myriad of genre-redefining Battlegrounds. This isn’t your average MOBA - this is Heroes of the Storm!
Take charge, take aim, or take one for the team. Heroes fall into the following categories so you can easily find a role that best fits your playstyle:
Tank Heroes are formidable juggernauts that protect their team by absorbing attacks from the enemy and blocking their advance.
Bruiser Heroes are tough fighters that can also dish out moderate amounts of damage.
Support Heroes primarily provide boosts, buffs, or other benefits to their allies.
Healer Heroes primarily focus on healing their allies and mitigating damage.
Melee Assassin Heroes are high-octane, in-your-face damage dealers that get up close and personal with their targets.
Ranged Assassin Heroes are fragile characters with high damage capabilities that attack from a distance.
Experience over a dozen unique Battlegrounds with wildly diverse objectives, layouts, and themes. Here are just a few examples of what you might find within the Nexus’s many realms:
