More Model Updates and Master Skins Coming Soon

Over the past few months we have been steadily working to improve the quality of our models in Heroes of the Storm, and we wanted to offer you a glimpse into the upcoming model updates and Master Skins for Malfurion and E.T.C.!

Some of the many upgrades we’ve made to these Skins include:

  • A portrait quality face with greater face definition with blinking eyes and expressions, allowing the model to articulate its voice over using FaceFX technology in the future
  • High definition hands
  • Added details and more realistic hair
  • Improved texturing and modeling for optimal showcasing in both hero select and game view

You can check out all of these updates in the video below!


First up is Malfurion, the Archdruid, the greatest druid on Azeroth. As a part of our latest model upgrades, Malfurion’s base Skin and Stormrage Skins are now ready to step out onto the Nexus in high definition!

But that’s not all! We’re also sharing a first look at Malfurion’s Master Skin in all its regal glory. Malfurion is definitely channeling his wild side in this impressive evolution of his base skin, which comes equipped with a new staff, headdress, and wicked new regalia befitting a powerful druid of his prowess.


Next up is Elite Tauren Chieftain (E.T.C.), the Rock God. Soon you will be able to bear witness to the Power of the Horde’s brutal rhythms and blistering guitar riffs in high fidelity! Significant model upgrades were made to E.T.C.’s base Skin as well as his Glam Metal and Pure Country Skins.

But if regular E.T.C. wasn’t epic enough for you, we also have a sneak peek at Master E.T.C., who comes equipped with even more brutal spikes and wicked weaponry to slay audiences and enemies alike!

We hope you enjoyed this sneak peek at the model upgrades ahead for Malfurion and E.T.C. as well as their Master Skins.
