“From the east shall come a monarch whose rule begins in blood and ends in bone. In the light of a comet he will die a third and final death at the hands of true men/a chosen woman.”
Anhyra Whirlwinded us away with female Barbarian cosplay from Diablo III; now her rendition of Leoric, former king of Khanduras driven to madness by the spirit of Diablo and transformed into the Skeleton King has awed us in a completely different but equally impressive manner.
“Heroes? Heh heh heh, you mean those vagabonds who illegally enter my home, smash my jar collection, bring me to life just to kill me again, and then leave white items all over my floor? Oh yes, how very heroic.”
Leoric is also a melee bruiser hero in Heroes of the Storm, with Abilities such as Undying, Skeletal Swing and March of the Black King.
