Loot Chest Unboxing

So yesterday afternoon, Heroes of the Storm 2.0 launched. It completely revamped the progression system, adding "loot chests" of four items each - items that could previously only be gotten through real money purchases, as well as brand new cosmetic flavorings.

Those who played before the change logged in with special chests based on their total hero levels prior to the change. When the number were crunched, I ended up with 5 common chests, 55 Epics, and 6 special Veteran chests (basically a common chest with a fifth guaranteed Legendary item). Duplicates award "shards" which allow you to craft the item you want if you didn't get it.

My original plan was to open them next Monday at my gaming group in front of my friends, but they were all excited to play yesterday so I logged each item I got. I am posting them here, mainly for my friends who didn't get to see it in person. But if you're a HotS player, you may appreciate it too...

I did not reroll anything because I just wanted to see what I would get naturally.

P.S. I have to say I am impressed on the deflection on the part of Blizzard regarding the new hero reveal. People had been saying for months that D.VA was coming soon, but when Blizz put the teaser out with the claw marks and growl, people instantly started debating who it could be - Deathwing? Broll Bearmantle? Obviously Hanzo? Nope, the claw marks and frowl were Diablo and the new hero reveal is D.VA coming to the rescue. Well played, Blizz. Well played.
