awesome!
Sticky please!
Today's Leoric release breaks Blizzard's mold for hero releases -- no patch or patch notes were included, they simply activated him in the game.

Until now, every hero release has included in a patch.
Just a suggestion, but exact dates above each patch, like you have for Leoric's release, would also be helpful.

but exact dates above each patch


Done! Good suggestion~
Bumped for the imminent and confirmed August 18 patch.
Bumped for REXXAR!
All aboard the medivac hypeship!
Nice post bruh, you want any of them likes?
This is a miracle. Every wiki should mine data from this post.
Sticky pls

February 10 patch. The Lost Vikings released.


i remember that...good times
Quick question. At what time do patches usually go up?

It's the 6th of October, but the patch isn't live yet. Is there a specific time, or do they just go live when ready?

Usually 11am PDT, but sometimes the servers come up early.

RIP Fast Restart
Bump FOR AIUR! And game client version mismatch...
(Knowing that one day you might master Lunara, it fills you with determination.)
So, how about them weekly balance patches? Eh? Ehhh?
Hello again! Or is this the first time you've been here?
Bump for posterity!
