Heroes of the Storm Trailer: Meet Rehgar the Orc Shaman
The cinematic trailer introduces Rehgar, showing off his elemental powers and physical strength as well as his less-than-friendly attitude. A former gladiator and warrior, Rehgar serves as a versatile support character, offering a mix of strength, durability and melee casting. His Wolf Spirit form grants him exceptional mobility, allowing Rehgar to cover lot of ground quickly and perform quick strikes to enemies. His Earthbound Totem ability is a useful scouting tool, letting Rehgar and his teammates know when opponents are attempting to capture mercenaries.
Rehgar Earthfury joins at least 13 other World of Warcraft characters in Heroes of the Storm, including Arthas Menethil, Brightwing, Illidan Stormrage, Tyrande Whisperwind and Falstad Wildhammer. Other WoW characters, like Jaina Proudmoore, Rexxar and Murky have appeared in trailers or game artwork, but have not yet been announced officially. Over a dozen characters from Blizzard’s other hit series, Diablo and Starcraft, round out the current roster. Heroes of the Storm is currently in Alpha, but no release date has been announced.
