With every new year since the release of Standard, Blizzard has been releasing a new free Hero skin, the first being
Maiev and the second
Lunara. In this post I want to list my favorite choices of BfA's prominent characters for a new skin for each of the Hearthstone classes
Ulfar is the last of the Drust druids and the leader of the Thornspeakers, an order of Kul Tiran druids, who train in the old ways of the Drust from before the time of Gorak Tul. He is skull-y, tree-y, scary and I like him a lot
Nathanos Blightcaller is the champion and bodyguard of the Banshee Queen of the Forsaken, and a teacher of new Forsaken hunters. He is one of the strongest characters in the Warcraft universe, capable of destroying the world if he chooses to use 1% of his power
First Arcanist Thalyssra is the leader of the nightborne of Suramar. Having established cordial relations with the blood elves of Silvermoon, Thalyssra eventually swore Suramar's allegiance to the Horde, seeking to reclaim her people's place in Azeroth. We don't have a nightborne Hero in Hearthstone yet, so she would be pretty cool
Yrel is a member of the draenei's Council of Exarchs. Decades after heroes from Azeroth left Draenor, Yrel has become the High Exarch of the Lightbound: a group of fanatical draenei and orcs devoted to spreading the Light's influence, even forcibly, according to the will of the Light Mother. She would be the first draenei Hero in Hearthstone so I look forward to it(plus I find female draenei to be hot)
Alonsus Faol was the Archbishop of the Church of the Holy Light during the Second War. He organized the creation of paladins – knights who wielded the Light – to defend the Alliance of Lordaeron. His apprentice
Uther became the first paladin and together they founded the Knights of the Silver Hand paladin order. Faol died at some point, and became an undead. How many undead Heroes do we have in Hearthstone? Zero
Rogue: Flynn Fairwind
Flynn Fairwind is a human from Kul Tiras. A former pirate captain, he now serves the interests of Kul Tiras as long as he gets paid. Flynn serves as the Alliance manager for island expeditions. Flynn quickly became my favorite character in all of WoW(Bobsalami comes in second, sorry) and why wouldn't he? He is the Warcraft equivalent of Jack Sparrow, Blizz please add him to Hearthstone!!
Emperor Korthek is the self-proclaimed ruler of the Faithless sethrak. He was once one of the Keepers entrusted to protect Mythrax the Unraveler's tomb of Atul'Aman, and he and Keeper Vorrik co-ruled the sethrak. While there isn't an official statement saying he is a shaman, he uses almost exclusively zappy magic, so he is a shaman in my eyes!
Zul is a member of the Zanchuli Council and the personal prophet of
King Rastakhan, ruler of the Zandalari. Leader of the Zanchuli Council and chief advisor to King Rastakhan, Zul has earned his name and title through his many years foretelling accurate futures, providing the kingdom's military and agriculture with a tremendous advantage. He would be a great addition right after Rastakhan's RumbleTM
Taelia Fordragon is the daughter of
Bolvar Fordragon and the ward of House Proudmoore. A member of the Proudmoore Guard, Taelia is also the squire of Cyrus Crestfall, a former knight who was entrusted by Daelin Proudmoore himself with taking care of Bolvar's child. She is also probably the future wife of the High King of the Alliance
So these are my choices for what I want the new skin to be. I tried to pick characters of races different than those of the skins of each class for variety reasons(looking at you Jaina, Medivh and Khadgar for mage…). What are YOUR choices for the new skin?
