Leoric brings the Cemetery Gates.

    Leoric brings the Cemetery Gates.

    I’m sure you guys are as sick as I am of all the Diablo 3 news coming from Heroes of the Storm, so hopefully this is the last one for a while. That said, E3 brought news that Leoric is the next playable Diablo figure in HotS, and Blizzard released short videos showing off all of his skills.

    There are some cool effects, with Leoric doing ghostly life drain stuff as well as his big three-swing Cleave attack… but the best one (visually, at least) is his Waller-style skill called “Entomb.” It works just like Waller does in Diablo 3, creating a three wall cage around the fleeing target with Leoric waiting at the open end.

    The best part is the gothic cemetery fence graphic of the wall, which looks awesome even as the demonstration video shows Leoric using it on some cheesy drobot thing that looks weirdly like one of Torchlight’s mechanical golems. I guess it’s a WoW thing? Shameful.

    Anyway, here’s a video that compiles all of Leoric’s skills. Entomb is shown at 30 seconds and yes, it should have a better name, since there’s no tomb in sight. Gater? Fencer? Cemetery Gates?

    Here’s where we all start lobbying for Leoric to gain this ability in D3. Or for some monster to get a Waller that looks like a rusting cemetery fence. Because classy!
