As bad as it sounds, my favorites so far are Muradin, Thrall and Murky! That little murloc is hilarious when he dies!

Theres special portraits for having reached level 40 during the alpha. As well lvl 40 during the beta. Personally I dig the blizzcon portrait and the digital nexus horse mount you got with it.



Edit:
Battle.net announces global play is now available in Heroes of the Storm. This may sound like all players are now in one pool regardless of region, but it actually represents the ability to switch to a different region. This actually remains quite separate, as purchases and experience do not transfer between regions, but they note that this does give players the ability to play the game while the servers for their home territories are down for maintenance. They also note that players who play in a region where a new patch is available will receive the update, and will then be unable to play in their home territory until it is patched to the new version.

Darn, I don't think I'll be able to make it to 40 in a week and a half! I do plan on continuing playing it though. It's a nice little break from grinding away on WoW at times.

at 22 now and still going, just started when it went open beta last week. i never would have played it if there wasn't a warcraft battle pet involved, but of course Blizzard knew that. ;)

i bought the $4.99 starter pack, i was just going to buy a stimpack (+100%xp +150% gold for 7 days), but the starter pack has a stimpack plus 3 heroes for only a couple dollars more. at level 5 or 10 you get a 7-day stimpack free too.

as has been mentioned, each week 7 heroes are free to play. i have been playing each to level 5, you get 500 gold and some play time with each character to see if you like it. i tend to go for ranged damage and healers (like i do in WoW), but the tanks (warriors) generally have a fun CC and/or escape ability so i like those too.

before i play a hero, i look it up on [url=http://www.heroesnexus.com]heroesnexus.com[/url]. it's a curse site, same people do hearthpwn and diablofans, i use those 2 sites a lot too. also i read [url=http://blizzardwatch.com]blizzardwatch[/url] every day, it used to be WowInsider, but now they do all blizzard games.

then i always watch a youtube video for the hero by [url=https://www.youtube.com/user/MFPallytime/videos]MFPallytime.[/url] He's great. he plays one whole Quick Match (full pvp) with the hero, and explains the play style and how he is speccing it. also he is an AMAZING play-by-play guy, while he is playing. He talks about about his team's comp and the opponents', and what he expects the opposing players might do. he also has incredible map awareness, so besides learning the character you get an idea about how the mechanics of each map should work.

then i usually play one game on tutorial, which is a good way to get a hang of the basics. tutorial mode pauses the game when you are choosing a new talent, which is nice. after that, straight into Quick Match for me, unless i have a daily quest that i need wins for (vs AI is near 100% wins, quick match closer to 50%).


So i think i will keep playing, even though i already have enough for Graves. and if they have a pet for Overwatch, i'll see you in the thread for that :mrgreen:

Very helpful - thanks. I've been tinkering with the ranged dps dude from SC I think.

Past midnight here and the uk launch event is long over. But it doesnt appear to have gone live yet. No achievement in WoW, and my bnet account still says beta for Hots. So it will probably flip over sometime tonight.

Level 19, with 175k xp to go until level 20. My free Stimpack from level 10 expires roughly when I get off fro work today.
Hopefully, I can just squeeze in one battle with bonus and I'll make level 20..

I cannot wait for my pet.. Today will, most likely, also be the last time I ever start that game....

Graves is a 6.2 pet so we'll have to wait until 6.2 goes live and Graves is in the game before we can get the pet.

Graves was present in the journal since 6.1, but noone knew how he was obtained. And thats not an official blizzard preview.

The official preview does not show Graves: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/191669 ... -5-19-2015

So I still hold on that we could see it today. Appearently still 30 mins till it turns the 2nd in california.

Had a blizzard reply:

Gamemaster Fenhjray at your service! How are you today?

I write you as you contacted us about the issue with HotS and the Graves Pet.

Heroes is live already, but there is unfortunately a small problem with the pet, if you have reached lvl 20 before already. No worries though, you will get the pet, but it will take til tomorrow evening (if all goes well), before you can access the Grave Golem Pet.

I am sorry for the inconvenience this is causing, but again - it is just a matter of time now.

Aww maaan. I was looking forward to the mount in HotS more than the pet actually and that one isn't available yet either. Sad times!

Is he just going to appear in our journal once the game "officially" launches at its launch time today? I have my level 20 - can't wait to grab the pet!
