We have two news to share regarding cosmetic Hero skins!
First of all, Mike Donais has confirmed that Tyrande Whisperwind Priest cosmetic Hero will come back by the end of the year… and it will be given out for free! To add some context, the skin was available back on 2016, but only by subscribing to Twitch Prime. The issue is that at the time the service wasn’t available in most of the countries around the world, which means that a lot of people have missed it (or, alternatively, create an account with fake address – but many people didn’t want to do that or didn’t know that it was a possibility). Devs have long promised to bring the skin back, since it was very popular among the players. Then, it was briefly available again, but only for SEA players – it was added to 40 card packs bundles – but again, only in a few countries.
We’ve heard many times that the skin will eventually make a comeback for the last 3 years, and now is the time! While we don’t know an exact date yet, Mike Donais has confirmed that it’s not coming until December. Maybe it will launch with the next expansion? Or we’ll get it as a Christmas gift? No matter how, I’m really glad that it will finally be available again – and this time worldwide.
We are still planning on giving it away free this year. (Source)

Another news is regarding the three cosmetic Heroes available in shop – Alleria, Magni and Medivh. Players have noticed that with the latest patch their price has dropped from $9.99 to $6.99 (30% off). Sadly, it looks like it’s not a permanent discount, but rather a sale – things will get back to normal with the launch of upcoming expansion (December 10). Still, if you were already thinking about buying it, it might be the right time to do so. Each of those comes with a card back too. You can get them through Battle.net Shop or in-game.
Clarifying that this is a sale: it will run through December 9th. (Source)
