  • Anub'alisk Anub'arak (from Nexus-altered Koprulu Sector) - Epic

  • Butcherlisk The Butcher (from Nexus-altered Koprulu Sector) - Legendary - provided from Machines of War
    • Abathur's newest creation was inspired by the tenacity of the hellish abominations he encountered in the Nexus. Its instructions were simple: Acquire fresh essence. Evolve.

    • Some days it's good to get out of the CMC Powered Combat Suit and into something a bit more comfortable.
  • Custom Rig Tychus (from Nexus-altered Koprulu Sector) - Rare
    • Sure, that suit may be his prison... But you and I both know that's not going to stop him from sprucing the thing up... Now, is it?
  • Daelaam Artanis (from Nexus-altered Koprulu Sector) - Rare - provided from Heroes 2.0
    • The Khala is lost, and the war against Amon rages across the Koprulu Sector. Aboard the Spear of Adun, Artanis and his forces are the last hope against annihilation.
  • Dark Prelate Zeratul (from Nexus-altered Koprulu Sector) - Epic
    • Upon selection, each Dark Prelate is presented with a unique armor reflecting their beliefs and personality. Zeratul rarely dons the Shadow's Embrace, as he prefers less formal attire.
  • Deputy Valla (from Riksville) - Epic - provided from Hallow's End 2016
    • No one settled disputes on the lawless streets of Riksville faster than Valla de Hunter. When Marshal Raynor began to deputize a posse, she was the first gunslinger on his list.
  • Elite Agent Nova (from Nexus-altered Koprulu Sector) - Epic
    • The Crius Stealthsuit was the ultimate hostile environment suit developed by the Terran Dominion for its ghost. Unfortunately, due to its immense cost, few were ever deployed.

  • Ghost Tracer (from Nexus-altered Koprulu Sector) - Epic - provided from Heroes 2.0

  • Goliath D.Va (from Nexus-altered Koprulu Sector) - Rare
    • Few mechs are as versatile as the goliath combat walker. Armed with the latest aftermarket upgrades, Corporal Song can call in a new walker from TACCOM whenever she gets the go-ahead.
  • Grunty Murky (from Nexus-altered Koprulu Sector) - Epic
    • Alright, fess up... Who put the murloc in that power armor? Sammy? We talked about this... Guys, this is real cute and all, but how the heck are we supposed to get him out of there?
  • Hierarch Artanis (from Nexus-altered Koprulu Sector) - Rare
    • As Hierarch, Artanis strives for unity among his people. Drawing inspiration from the cultures of both Aiur and Shakuras, his ceremonial armor is a symbol of their combined strength.
  • High Templar Zeratul (from Nexus-altered Koprulu Sector) - Epic
    • Despite Judicator Raszagal's warning that only heresy comes from contact with the Dark Ones, Praetor Zeratul believes that the young Prelate "Tassadar" may be the key to Aiur's salvation.
  • Highlord Alarak (from Nexus-altered Koprulu Sector) - Epic - provided from Machines of War

    • Maybe keeping that visor open on Char wasn't the best idea...

    • Even in the far flung future of 2504, Level 800 Elite Tauren Chieftain is still "terran up the night."
  • Maraudin' Muradin (from Nexus-altered Koprulu Sector) - Epic
    • Based in the Kel-Morian Combine, Three Hammer Securities employs the boldest and baddest mercenaries in the sector. Give them a call when you need to put someone in a world of hurt.

    • As his Queen ordered, Abathur augmented Zagara, allowing her more flexible thinking and a stronger control over her brood... but there's always room for more improvement.
  • Pack Leader Dehaka (from Nexus-altered Koprulu Sector) - Rare
    • To the primal zerg, form and function are one. With each change comes greater strength, and thus survival. Few have undergone as much change as Dehaka... and he intends to keep it that way.
  • Primal Queen Kerrigan (from Nexus-altered Koprulu Sector) - Epic
    • The primal zerg essences within Kerrigan cannot remain static for too long. With every kill, they incorporate their foe's strengths, becoming increasingly deadly... and spikey.
  • Prime Probius (from Nexus-altered Koprulu Sector) - Rare

    • As the terrazine haze cleared from his mind, Illidan saw what he had become. His body had mutated, grown irreversibly addicted... But the power was worth any price.
  • Spectre Nova (from Spectre Ghosts) - Epic
    • Nova couldn't let Tosh face his fate alone, and together they embraced the spectre program. It was her and him against the whole damn universe... just the way she liked it.
  • Spectre Tracer (from Spectre Ghosts) - Epic
    • While terrazine exposure greatly enhances psionic powers, Tracer's ability to manipulate her own space-time is considered a unique gift even among her fellow Spectres.

    • While the United States Space Force successfully rescued their colonists from the Koprulu sector, Colonel James Raynor worried those monsters might find their way to Earth.
  • Swarm Abathur (from Nexus-altered Koprulu Sector) - Epic

  • Templar Li-Ming (from Nexus-altered Koprulu Sector) - Epic
    • Li-Ming may be strong-willed, but the will of Templar Li-Ming is stronger.
