Free Hero Rotation - Updated: Jan 6, 2015

Technical Alpha General Feedback
We've just refreshed our free-to-play Hero rotation with a fresh set of seven Heroes who stand ready to start smashing towers at a moment's notice!

As always, fresh accounts begin with five free Hero slots, and the two remaining slots can be unlocked by reaching player levels 12 and 15, respectively.

Here are your free heroes for this week:

    Week of Tuesday, January 6, 2015:
  • Diablo
  • E.T.C.
  • Li Li
  • Nova
  • Tyrande
  • Gazlowe (Available after you reach player level 12)
  • Jaina (Available after you reach player level 15)

This post will be updated each week during the Tech Alpha whenever we refresh the free hero rotation, and you can expect the next set of free heroes to arrive next Tuesday. Make sure to do some brawling with this week’s roster before they rotate out of the pool!

If you'd like to see hero rotations from previous weeks, we'll be posting them as replies to this thread.
