As we noted in a previous article, the team over at Blizzard always seem to want to do some events for the Lunar Festival. And once again, Heroes of the Storm is getting a special event for it too, one that’ll take place from January 24th to February 14th.
During these weeks, players will be racing to complete new special event quests that offer handsome rewards, which we’ll detail below. Plus, there are new skins and mounts in the Shop, and for effect you may spot fireworks at the end of your matches. Just for flair, because why not?
One of the big things during the festival will be that you’ll receive a new quest to complete the Rooster Race. This isn’t random, I assure you. Now, if any players on your team have not yet finished that day’s quest, there’s a chance that the Lunar Rooster (again, because why not?) will appear near your Core before the match begins. Also, festive items will also be scattered around your team’s starting area. You have to work with your allies to collect the required items. Then, when you return them to the Rooster, it’ll advance its position. Return four items before time runs out to help your Rooster cross the finish line, if you do so, you win! Your rewards? Well if you do it daily, you’ll get 200 gold. If you do ALL the daily quest, as in every day during the festival, you’ll get a special Lunar Rooster poster and mount.
But that’s not all, as is tradition, certain characters will don special Lunar Festival garb. Some examples include Monkey King Samuro, Lunar Li-Ming, and the new Nimbus Cloud Mount. So if your champion is in the ranks of those who can be dressed for the festival, go pick up the special bundle that includes their outfit and celebrate in style!
So, are you ready for the Lunar Festival? If so, be sure to jump back into Heroes Of The Storm so you can have some fun.
