More Lore Skins

Hero and Skin Suggestions
I wonder when we will have more Lore Skins in HotS... tip the last one we got was Theramore Jaina if i'm not mistaken, and this one was a long time ago :/

I think HotS needs more Lore Skins, per example:

Death Knight Arthas Skin - Yes i want this Skin back because of HotS 2.0 System
Kul'tiras Jaina Skin (From WoW Battle for Azeroth)
Diablo 1 Skin
Leoric Skin from Diablo 1
The Butcher Skin from Diablo 1
Wretched Kael'Thas Skin (From Magisters' Terrace)
Mortal Tyrael Skin (From Diablo 3)
Xel'naga Kerrigan Skin (From StarCraft 2 Legacy of the Void)
Zul'jin Skin (From Zul'Aman) - for HotS Zul'jin needs both of his arms but np only his appearance and missing eye it's enough for me :)
Old God or Corrupted Garrosh Skin
Artanis Skin (From StarCraft 1/Remastered)
Artanis skin (From StarCraft 2 Wings of Liberty)
Fenix Zealot Skin for Artanis
Raynor Skin (From StarCraft 1/Remastered)
Zeratul Skin (From StarCraft 1/Remastered)
Ghost Kerrigan Skin (From StarCraft 1/Remastered)
Pre-Zerg Ghost Kerrigan Skin (From StarCraft 2 Heart of the Swarm)
and much more....

Well actually that idea is not bad maybe is the only solution here to have that Skin in game. I think everyone knows that Zul'jin in that form has a missing arm, missing eye and a different appearance but since Zul'jin here in HotS have both Arms because of his gameplay he really needs both arms in that Skin from Zul'Aman ^^

For Ghost Kerrigan we already have it as tint for Nova.
Raynor and Zeratul in SC1 was identical to how they look in SC2 (ok, Raynor just need to look a bit younger, thing quite easy to do, I edited his textures for the remake to look younger).
Artanis in SC1 in the canon use the same clothes we see in WoL, this was confirmed in the Sacrifice Comic book (even because they apperence of Artanis in SC1 don't make absolutly sense, they make him a Nerazim O__o)
For Infested Kerrigan SC1/WoL, I don't understand why they still don't do that... is just use the regular texture with the Char variant emissive texture.

Raynor looks pretty different in Starcraft 1, with the shaved head and everything.
Hopefully SC1 Raynor skin get released along with his rework, then they can name the skin Jimmy Prime

In Heart of the Swarm and in the OFFICIALS artworks we can see Raynor in SC1 have the same SC2 hair style
"It's like the old times, but now I have more grey hairs"
"And I more Zergish"

And this quotes will not make sense if he was shaved, so like a lot of SC1 appearence, the Raynor appearence in SC1 is no canon.

While it might not be the official, canonical haircut, it is still the haircut utilized in Starcraft 1, and is the most iconic to the players of Starcraft 1 (as well as those who played the remastered version). It might not be a lore skin, but it is still different enough and iconic enough to justify becoming its own skin as "Classic Raynor" or "Brood Wars Raynor." They might have retconned his hair, but I think the intention of the lore skins is being able to play the character as the player finds them ideal, and I'm willing to bet several Starcraft 1 players would love to opportunity to play classic Raynor.

The title of the thread say "lore skin", so the shaved Raynor is not lore friendly.
YES PLEASE! :3

Kul'tiras Jaina Skin (From WoW Battle for Azeroth)


This Jaina skin is the most wanted Lore skin for now i think ^^
Does Nexus Lore skins count for this? Cause I would love to see a Dark Nexus Kel'Thuzad, Arthus and Ragnaros.
A wod version thrall would be really damn cool too i think.
this is that kind of skins which i like, i dont care for steampunk kaelthas or cheerleader kerrigan, i love artanis skin when he has no "hair" and has zerathuls weapon (coz he killed him accidentaly), i like skin on hammer which will make her orc tank,

i woud love to see skin for cassia which will change her in darksper troll headhunter (with great hair and epic troll shield) i would love to see lot of skins which arent just some funny stuff but it make sense in the universis like batrider falstad would be epic or skin for zul'jin which would change him in jungle troll (it will make him less muscular as JT are) what about Grommash skin for garrosh, or (i dont know how would this work maybe its stupit) roadhog skin for stitches these are skins i would like and these are skins i would buy

If you mean Warlords of Draenor then that is already in the game. It's the World Shaman Skin. And a lore related skin that I kinda want to see is probably some tier sets from WoW. We have a few but whats the harm in some more? Maybe give Arthus the Death Knight set from ICC, give Varian the Wrynn's Battlegear and Garrosh the Hellscream's Battlegear from Trial of the Crusader, and those are just a few semi lore related skins.
I forgot to add Young Genji, Young Hanzo and Young Ana (Captain Amari) skins on my list x)
I want all of those in the game (even though I don't even play many of those heroes XD).

Also, I'll add a suggestion: a Warcraft 3-like skin for Maiev where her helmet covers only the top half of her face, and her cape is lined with blades all along the edge.

Well Dark Nexus skins count as Lore skins since HotS have Lore now but they doesn't count for these ones

Figured I would ask, still want them though. But I do agree with the Death Knight Arthus skin idea. I kinda want that back even though it's just him without the Helm
It's a shame that they don't release Random skins out of tematic skins anymore :/

They release some Event skins for 3 Heroes at max now and out of that the rest are just Recolours for Old skins :/
I would like an Arthas skin that is before he's corrupted by Frostmourne. Give him his huge Hammer and full paladin gear. I know it's next to impossible since that won't explain Sindragosa and Gouls for his ults but perhaps they can switch them to something themed around his Holy element of being a paladin. Perhaps switching the gouls to guardian spirits and switching Sindragosa to an arch angel that blasts the path with holy light or something.
