Caldeum Complex is an event in Heroes of the Storm that takes place between March 26, 2019 and April 30, 2019.

Background[edit | edit source]

Welcome to the Caldeum Arcopolis, 2103 AD. A city bought and sold a hundred times over, now giant Mega Corporations hold more sway in the ever-shifting politics of the world than governments. Down on the rain slicked streets, humans, mutants, machines and synthetics all struggle to find their place in the light of the neon glow beneath the towering monuments to capitalism lording over them.

With such oppression, the common people often turn to a life of crime. The leader of one of the largest gangs, the Azure Dragons, goes by the nickname, Chromie. Both a hacker and an anti-corporate street artist, many have said her work has an almost prophetic quality, as if she sees through time itself. The corporate media would have you believe she uses her gang of hackers to illegally ensure her prophecies become true, but lately her work has turned dark, as if she’s seen a cataclysmic force on the horizon…

Recently, the Dragons have found an ally in the Onyx Turtles. While it’s rare to see the gangs working together, as the noose of systemic oppression has grown tighter, those in the underbelly of the mega-city have had to find new ways to survive. Kharazim and his Turtles are a harder sort of stock than most, with many known gladiators and street fighters serving in the ranks. This new alliance has provided the Azure dragons a strong defense against threats in the physical world.

High above, the Jigoku Cybenetics Corporation, a primary manufacturer of mechanical augmentations, has become a target of both groups. In the mean streets, human enhancement has become one of the few options left to move the playing field more into the favor of those willing to bend the law. But their efforts have not gone unnoticed, and any who would dare to impugn the honor of Jigoku find themselves in the sights of the CyberOni, Jigoku’s elite agents: merciless killers at the beck and call of their bureaucratic masters.

Cosmetics[edit | edit source]

Starting the week of March 26, all Loot chests earned through progression (except Hero-specific Chests), Heroes Brawl, or by spending Gold will be Caldeum Complex Loot Chests. These loot chests guarantee at least one item from the Caldeum Complex or previous years’ Lunar New Year Spring events. Carve out your place among the infamous gangs and score yourself some sweet loot before the streets calm on April 30!

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The realm of Caldeum Complex is basically one big reference to the Cyberpunk subgenre of science fiction.
  • The cyberpunk lore is also linked to the chinese Lunar Event: There are 4 factions in Caldeum Acropolis: Azure Dragons (Chromie), Onyx Turtles (Kharazim), Jigoku Cybernetics (Butcher and Lucio) and the Ivory Tigers (for which there are no skins yet, but it's likely to be related to Johanna). Three of them are referencing four mythological creatures from Chinese mythology, specifically: the Azure Dragon, the White Tiger and the Black Turtle, with the Vermilion Bird being absent.[1]
    • Jigoku Cybernetics is named after the "hell" of East Asian cultures, specifically using the Japanese name for the realm. This is the reason for the demonic aesthetic to them.
