It’s good to be the king.

Well, unless you’re the mad king Leoric, one of the Diablo franchise’s most memorable villains. The once devout and benevolent monarch fell after Diablo corrupted him. After executing a bunch of innocent people, his own men killed him. The Lord of Terror then raised him from the dead, turning Leoric into the undead warlord known as the Skeleton King.

Yeah, he’s had it rough. But Leoric’s back for revenge as the latest playable character in Heroes of the Storm, Blizzard Entertainment’s multiplayer online battle arena game. The Skeleton King was released Tuesday during Blizzard’s ongoing Diablo-themed Eternal Conflict event.

In the video below, GamesBeat has a guide to his abilities and a suggested talent build.
