Strategy and Role[edit]

Lore[edit]

Once a Terran ghost with unprecedented psionic abilities, Sarah Kerrigan was betrayed by her allies and transformed by the ravenous zerg into the indomitable Queen of Blades. Now freed of The Dark God Amon's corruption, Kerrigan faces a threat that could destroy the galaxy itself.

Sarah Kerrigan hails from the depths of the StarCraft universe, and in Heroes of the Storm, Kerrigan takes on the role of an Assassin who is a heavy-hitting, combo-based Hero who specializes in initiating fights and forcing her will onto her opponents. The cunning Queen of Blades is definitely a strong ally that you’ll want by your side as you seek to control the Nexus!
