HOTS Update: New Hero Orphea is Live

The newest update for Heroes of the Storm added a new hero to the game - Orphea, Heir of Raven Court. The developers presented the hero at BlizzCon. The first hero from Nexus is a ranged assassin with multiple skill shots and high mobility. Below you can find the description of the character's abilities.

Orphea, Heir of Raven Court

Rejecting the dark power her father had begun to consort with, Orphea tried to run away from the Raven Lord's influence. But after witnessing King's Crest fall to his machinations, she was convinced she needed to stand and fight. She now vows to protect the innocent--as a Hero of the Nexus.
