    If we are to speak most interesting sounding concept than I think Mohandar as an assassin would be fun and tricky. His attacks would probably be based on focus that builds up the longer he remains fixated on a target.

    Making him a specialist on like with Sgt Hammer (use a machine to fight instead of personally) would probably be the best idea. The problem I see is how to place a Void Ray in a meaningful way close to the ground. Both assassin or specialist could suit him.

    Still Artanis is a higher priority. He really has to be Specilist who uses his large ship to attack (so as not to be a Tassadar clone).

    ''Medivh'' Say whaaaat? Medivh saved all Azeroth when Burning Legion invaded Azeroth the second time. (In Wc3 Reign of Chaos)

    Not if she dies from Lich King's badassnes.

    You dont want to see a dragon that is half the size of the map do you? They should either make him a smaller dragon or put his human form instead.

    As for which champions I wnt to see, the first one I want to see is Malthael. Every single unit and building in the map will probably die from Malthael's badassnes. Second is Fenix cuz why nut and finally a worgen guy or Dehaka, since they both are hunters. I guess.

    The Hyperion should be big as the entire map, perhaps more, yet it's scaled down enough to be a ult for raynor.

    Sindragosa, the ultimate of the lich king want to say "Hi..." with a banshee voice, because she is almost as big as hammer or azmodan and she is a freaking dragon!

    also, Blizzard don't play with scale fairly, almost every game they make, the scales are purposely small that is almost comical, I mean seriously, How dragons can be shot down by Riflemen? or why a Battlecruiser and Carrier are easily destroyed by mass marines, Stalkers or Hydralisks?

    If Deathwing can be in the game, he can be in dragon form and be as big as Azmodan if Blizzard want him to be.

    There is already SC2 style scaling in place so it does not need to be scaled down more than the natural scaling in place. Seeing how an Ultralisk, a unit normally the size of an entire city block (>10 stories high, there is a reason they are the swarm's ultimate creation) is scaled down to around the same height as Thrall. Or the Hyperion an enormous hundred meter battle cruiser is only a reasonably large circle. I would imagine Deathwing being a "massive" hero (this is some mechanic property with regard to Stiches) and probably the largest collision and model size of all heroes (bigger than Azmodan due to tail) but that is probably as large as the scaling would allow it to be.

    Its stupid how they make dragons have "human" forms. One might as well not even call them dragons then.

    A large death breathing dragon would fit perfectly next to a lightning breathing incarnation of fear, a molten tungsten shooting siege weapon of destruction and a female alien super model who can crush whole town sized battlecruisers with nothing but her mind. The competition is very fierce and even Deathwing would need to try its best to win.

    I also agree that he needs to be in. As either Assassin or Specialist obviously. Arthras and Sylvanas could learn a thing or two from him. Also the possibility for awesome death quotes with his awesome RoS VO cannot be missed.

    "Your time has come."
    "I am here for your."
    "Your soul now belongs to me."
    "You are only delaying the inevitable."

    For ultimate ability having him merge with the Black Soul Stone would be awesome (passive, enhance all abilities) and his skull orbit attack.

    There is a good chance he might even be the next hero. Previous data-minded heroes made it in eventually and there was considerable data for him at some stage. That said there was also data for a few others such as some Gnome guy, Mengsk, The Butcher, and Skeleton King.

    I agree, it's not a dragon anymore when it's in a human form. It loses all of its glory.

    We could have Deathwing in another facet if he enter in "Mortal" Form. (Dragons and Aspects enter in Human or other races of azeroth to interact better with the Mortals)

    He could be "Deathwing, The Aspect of Death" or "The Mad Aspect." and his ultimates Could to be entering in his dragon form or summoning Molten Giants (Plus Talent could cause a cataclysm)

    Mathael would not like that very much... He cannot have stupid non-angles taking his name sake. Him appearing as a human would not help getting mercy from Mathael.

    As is the style, he would be named Deathwing. They do not give the characters "titles" outside of the introduction cinematic.

    The other is they could make him as "Neltharion", his original self before the corruption of the old gods, just like Illidan is in his Night Elf Self rather than the Half-Demon Half-Night elf we love, but make reference of his Prime Self. "I'm the Cataclysm!" "Death is Final!" *Killing Mathael* "There is only ONE aspect of Death!"

    "What are you talking about? he is not mine isn't he?" (Reference to Wrathion)

    Also, Mathael already have competition with the Title of Lord of Death, His name is the Lich King (Arthas if you prefer), so expect his trailer to be beating Arthas To Death... Again...

    In the HoTS trailer ultralisk is like wrecking havoc crushing vikings and stuff, yet in the real game he is at the size of one or two vikings. In Wc3 a peasant is at the size of a farm. Raiden logic I guess.

    Kerrigan, since protagonists always win.

    Lich King would not get fokked by Kael. Come on now, we are talking about The Lich King. Athough he might have some problems while fighting Malthael, since they have similiar power levels.

    Lich King's will over the scourge is undeniable, as Death Knight, He made havok in his own kingdom, then destroyed and systematically exterminated 90% of the population of the Elven Lands just to revive one person/lich

    Wrecked Dalaran and having the Lich to summon the Burning Legion and decimated the Rest of Lordaeron. Long Story Short; After Hyjal, Ner'zhul's betrayal was discovered and Arthas went to Northrend, Bested Illidan and fused with Ner'zhul, eventually, becoming the New Lich King.

    Never Played Diablo because I'm no fan of Isometric RPG games (Played only D2) but for what I know about Mathael is that he was the Archangel of Wisdom before he went missing, returned back as antagonist of Reaper of Soul that stolen the soulstone for...

    that would be very spoilerific

    Similar power levels? Mathael likely cannot even be damaged by Arthras, and even if he could it would not last long before Arthras is too weak to damage him.

    Where as Arthras was a stupid prince who found a sword, Mathael was the literal incarnation of Wisdom before becoming Death. The reality is he never stopped being Wisdom, hence how he could convert the Black Soul Stone (an ambitious creation from the angel touched madman Zultan Kule) into a weapon capable of killing all demons (and those born from them) everywhere all at once.

    he maybe the angel of wisdom, but even then, it was quite a good idea to fuse yourself with the Black Soulstone that contain the Prime Evils whose powers can corrupt the most powerful angels?

    There was no wisdom there, even when he took the black soulstone, I think he went insane.

    At least Ner'zhul was more crafty, Arthas was not.

    He corrupted himself already without demon help. The fact he could not understand humans drove him to madness and hence he become one with death as that was ultimately the only answer he could fine. This is evident by him attacking heaven, the place he once ruled just to stop the Nephalim. At this stage it is unclear if he could even call himself an angel anymore as even High Heavens wanted him dead (just like the demons).

    It is hinted that the Black Soul Stone might have been created with demonic magic. This is evident by the fact its creator committed terrible acts to make it (experimentation on people, probably demonic rituals) and why Heaven was incapable of creating such a soul stone (as they cannot use demonic magic). If they could have created such a stone Mathael would have used it long before Neplahim were created to end the great war early on.

    The Black Soul Stone was created to allow its wielder to harness the powers of those contained in it to enable them to be Nephailim like (since at the time the World Stone was draining away such powers). As such the wielder cannot be corrupted by using it and hence Mathael was not corrupted by it.

    It is also hinted that it was originally flawed and could not contain all the lords of hell without self-destructing. However it would appear that when Diablo used it he must have fixed it (more evidence that it is also a demonic creation) since after his defeat the stone was perfectly stable, and even could sustain minor damage without exploding.

    Since Mathael was the angle of Wisdom, he knew how to use and manipulate the stone. Hence he could execute a merger with it successfully. He also performed the merger as a last desperate attempt to stop you, hence it might have had long term physical affects to him that he did not care about at the time (next expansion...).

    In any case he would be a formidable melee fighter. As Assassin or Specialist he would be a real danger to most heroes.

    ... whose trailer will be gutting arthas... Again (Seriously, that guy is now from The most Dangerous threat in azeroth to a simple Punching Bag, is a way of blizzard telling us that they are done with him :(. )

    Now that we are talking about Angels, I don't think that they will include Imperius, his abilities are so similar to Tyrael (Teleporting around, rushing to the enemy.) if they ever include him, I guess that he will be less like Tyrael and more like Illidan.

    Spamming Buttom.

    The Angels that I'm more interested is Auriel, The Archangel of Hope and Itherael, The Archangel of Fate, specially him.

    He could be like a warrior version of Zilean

    I think he would be a ranged warrior or something crazy. He was seen using his spear to shoot a powerful laser blast to destroy barriers. He also has some version of "Falling Sword" attack but with just him diving downwards. One must remember that Imperius is the best fighter of the High Heavens so being a Ranged Warrior with powerful moves would suit him well.

    Mmmm Ranged Warrior, Interesting concept.

    I thinkin in Mannoroth, the WC3 version was mostly Melee, the WoD seems to be Ranged, I don't know much of the Raid Version, however, he is undead in hellfire so...

    Well spears do have a lot of reach compared to other melee weapons so that's the closest thing you'll have to range in melee with a warrior.

    I'd really like to see a Draenei or even Naaru hero (e.g. Maraad or Velen)

    And I'm quite curious in who or if there will be a SC warrior.

    about the ranged warrior: he could work with some barrier mechanics similar to Tassadar's Barrier, but on a normal ability, or he himself could be quite squishy but has some tanky adds/summons, in that case it would be similar to vikings, maybe with a maximum distance restriction to the adds?

    The warrior icon is a shield so the work as tanks of a sort so I doubt we'll ever see a ranged warrior.
