Heroes of the Storm

Winter Veil has Begun!

Winter Veil has Begun!

Update: Greatfather Winter has declared that Winter Veil will conclude on January 12, 2016! However, our Holiday Sale, which offered 50% off all Heroes, Skins, and Mounts has reached its conclusion as of January 5, 2016. Items introduced with Winter Veil have now returned to their normal prices.

The year is slowly winding down, but the merriment of Winter Veil is about to begin! Greatfather Winter is already on his way to spread holiday cheer in the Nexus, and he’s packing plenty of presents for everyone to enjoy during this year’s festivities.

Pour yourself a mug of hot cocoa, snuggle up next to the warmth of your computer, and get ready to embark on a wondrous Winter Veil Special Event quest —and don’t forget to bring our festive new ride with you! Check out the treats below and make sure you’re ready to celebrate when Winter Veil comes to Heroes of the Storm next week.


New Special Event Quest: 30 Days of Winter Veil

Make the most of your time in the Nexus during Winter Veil this year with our latest Special Event quest: 30 Days of Winter Veil! You can unlock up to two weeks of free Stimpack time just by playing Heroes of the Storm. Here are the details:

  • Play 15 Games – Earn a 4 day Stimpack
  • Play 50 Games – Earn a 10 day Stimpack
  • Please note: Each game played during our Winter Veil event will count toward progress for both Special Event Quests.


Festive Treasure Goblin Mount


Even the Scrooge-like Treasure Goblin has gotten into the holiday spirit by donning Greatfather Winter’s robes, and adorning himself with candy canes, bells, and bows. The Festive Treasure Goblin Mount will arrive alongside Winter Veil, but this limited-time Mount can’t be purchased. No, this particular Treasure Goblin is feeling extra generous, and will be available to all players for free during Winter Veil! Spread a few snowflakes around the Nexus this year by making sure to select the Festive Treasure Goblin mount before you hit that Ready button in your game lobbies.

We have received several questions about the Festive Treasure Goblin, and would like to clarify that this mount is not unlockable or purchasable. It will leave the Nexus once Winter Veil concludes, but can be used freely by all players for the duration of this event. 


New Winter Veil Items in the Shop

As we’ve mentioned previously, all brand new Heroes, mounts, bundles, and skins introduced before the end of 2015 will be available at 50% off their normal real-money prices, which includes this year’s new Winter Veil items. Let’s take a look at this year’s goodies:
