Deckard Cain is a Support Hero that excels at healing his teammates, debuffing enemies and providing crowd control but requires good positioning and peel. Deckard Cain will be joining the Nexus sometime this month.
The next upcoming Hero to enter the nexus is Fenix, Steward of the Templar from Starcraft. Fenix is an assassin hero with alot of mobility and consistent damage.
As one of the greatest heroes in protoss history, Fenix’s deeds on the battlefield are legendary. After falling to the zerg during the invasion of Aiur, his body was recovered and implanted into a dragoon so he could continue to fight. Not even death can stop Fenix from achieving glory and valor.
