Heroes of the Storm

Li Li Hero Week

"Take Me with You!"

- Li Li, World Wanderer

Li Li is the niece of Legendary Pandaren Brewmaster Chen Stormstout, and she enjoys exploring strange new places, meeting new people, and kicking bad guys in the face! She hails from the Warcraft universe, and in Heroes of the Storm, Li Li takes on the role of a positional Support that protects her allies by throwing out healing brew and blinding enemies. This spunky Pandaren has more than a few tricks up her sleeve, so you’ll want to stick close by her on your adventures in the Nexus!


Born upon Shen-zin Su, the Wandering Isle, Li Li Stormstout led a somewhat uneventful life until she began reading the journals of her Legendary uncle, Chen Stormstout. Soon, nothing would sate her desire for adventure, exploration, and pestering adventurers around Halfhill. Though Li Li’s father Chon Po didn’t approve of her wanderlust, in time she began to chronicle her explorations in a travel journal, which included a risky venture into a forbidden area of her island home. In time, Li Li chose to leave the Wandering Isle behind in order to start an adventure of her own, and was later joined by her uncle Chen. Together, they searched for (and discovered) their fabled homeland, Pandaria.

  • "Blinding Wind" [E] is a fantastic ability to use when opponents engage your teammates. The ability will block auto attacks from your enemies.
  • When using push compositions, choose "Jug of 1,000 Cups" [R] to keep your allies at maximum health.
  • Li Li’s Combat Trait, "Fast Feet," is incredibly powerful in both offensive and defensive measures. Use it to setup a kill with "Water Dragon" [R] or flee from a chasing enemy.

"I’m not lost. I'm just exploring in a different direction!"

Li Li’s starting skin in Heroes of the Storm is bright and full of spunk, just like she is!

The newest Li Li alternative skin we're revealing is one that any worldly explorer (or insect-catcher!) is sure to appreciate!

  • Explorer Li Li - The Explorer’s League is known for their progressive stance on accepting members of all species into their ranks. If you’ve got a heart that longs for adventure and discovery, you’re in!

"As an explorer, it's my duty to learn everything I can about the Nexus.
So what if I have to bash a few skulls along the way?"
