After an unexpected Blizzard’s announcement to cut it down with Heroes of the Storm esports, fans of the game quickly went into panic mode. Most believed that Blizzard’s MOBA will soon be forgotten by the company, but now it seems that this is not the case. The developers announced a new hero for the game – Anduin Wrynn, the new King of Stormwind.
From what we’ve gathered, Anduin will fill the role of support, healing his friends from a distance. According to the patch notes, he brings several abilities designed to keep his teammates healthy as well as “the potential to unleash the Light’s swift justice to enemies on the battlefield”.
Here’s the full list of Anduin’s abilities:

Flash Heal (Q) – Cast for 0.75 seconds to heal an allied Hero for 260.
Divine Star (W) – Send light that deals 140 damage to enemies and then returns to Anduin, healing allied Heroes for 130 in a wider path. Healing increases by 25% per enemy Hero hit.

Holy Word: Salvation (R1) – After 0.5 seconds, Channel to invoke the Light for 3 seconds. While nearby, allied Heroes heal for up to 25% of their max Health and are Protected.
