Garrosh Hellscream is coming to Heroes of the Storm Yesterday, Blizzard teased us with a fittingly cryptic image that would somehow relate to Heroes of the Storm’s next hero. Speculation was spread pretty wide, as a figure coming through the Dark Portal could mean any number of things. Would we be seeing Akama? Maiev? Ner’zhul? The list went on.
