2. Xul


Probably needs more sunshine in his life

One of the most fearsome Heroes of the Storm characters also happens to be its latest additions to the roster: Xul the Necromancer from Diablo II. Xul belongs to a secretive sect – the Priests of Rathma. As they have vowed to maintain the balance between life and death, they have learned to specialize in death magic. Despite their dark powers, the Necromancers are allied with the forces of good. Xul himself aims to eliminate the demonic evil plaguing the lands of Sanctuary.

A melee Specialist, Xul’s game is all about reviving fallen enemy Minions and turning them into Skeletal Warriors who fight for him. This makes Xul excellent at pushing lanes. Xul’s powers also allow him to weaken enemies and severely hamper their mobility. As such, he’s known to be one of the toughest Heroes to face on the battlefield.
