Heroes of the Storm – Necromancer from Diablo II confirmed for MOBA

Two new heroes from the world of Diablo have been announced for Heroes of the Storm, including Li Ming (representing the Wizard class from Diablo 3) and Xul, (representing the Necromancer class from Diablo II). Li Ming’s a tricky to play – but very flexible – character with three core skill builds at her disposal. The skills will not see big changes from Diablo III’s, including teleport and magic missile.

As the Necromancer class, Xul’s focus is able to summon spectral beings in battle and casting curses on enemy heroes. His Bone Prison ability allows him to trap and render a target immobile, while his innate trait allows up to 4 dead enemy minions to rise from the grave as  Skeletal Warriors. There is no release date, but I guess everyone would love to see the Necromancer class in Diablo III.
