Deckard Cain, the uh, expository old man from the Diablo series, is joining the playable cast of Blizzard’s character MOBA, Heroes of the Storm. While he is a legitimate playable character, there is a definite element of humor to his moveset, which helps my suspension of disbelief here a bit.
Cain is a support character and can throw healing potions to his teammates. When near a fellow player, he also gets a 10 armor bonus, and his cooldown timers are cut in half. He can use the Horadric Cube to do damage and cause slowdown in an area of effect, and use the Scroll of Sealing to stop enemies in their tracks in addition to some serious damage.
Cain also has two ultimate abilities, starting with Stay Awhile and Listen. Cain puts enemies in range to sleep for two seconds by telling long-winded old man stories. He also has Lorenado, which hits and knocks away enemies as it shoots out in a swirling pattern.
