Garrosh Hellscream artwork for Siege of Orgrimmar

After a few weeks of teasers and spotlight videos Garrosh Hellscream has finally made his way to the Heroes of the Storm PTR. Besides Garrosh and his cosmetics, the PTR update has also brought in a whole bunch of balance changes and tweaks, so if you're interested in all of the details you'll find the preliminary patch notes over at the HOTS blog.

On the other hand, if you're more interested in the former Warchief of the Horde, you'll find his most recent spotlight video down below. Without spoiling too much, let's just say that Garrosh isn't the type of hero you're probably expecting him to be. Have a look:

His abilities are certainly powerful enough to warrant him a slot on a variety of teams, but I still can't get over how 'normal' and uninteresting his playstyle is. Garrosh has always been a hot-headed maniac, so much so that he embraced the power of an Old God at one point, but none of this rage and fury is represented in Heroes of the Storm. A real shame since he could've been a truly awesome and unique tank to toy around with. On the positive side, while Garrosh may be slightly underwhelming, the balance changes and bug fixes are all on-point so it should still be a pretty damn exciting update.

Only one of Garrosh's skins is available right now, but if you would like to get a little bit of a sneak peek you'll find what you seek on the official website. Have fun with the PTR!
