Dark Nexus

From Heroes of the Storm Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
An ancient evil has emerged from the forgotten darkness, manifesting itself in forms that are familiar, and yet… twisted. What you see before you are reflections of the heroes and villains they seek to emulate—avatars who know only contempt and wield utter chaos. Behold the power of the Dark Nexus!
The Dark Nexus

The Dark Nexus is a Realm within the Nexus.

Background[edit | edit source]

Dark Nexus Homescreen

The Dark Nexus is tied, almost at a primordial level, to the base and chaotic nature of the Storm.[1] The avatars of the Dark Nexus are twisted reflections of heroes and villains. While they may wear familiar guises, they are, in truth, chaos and hatred incarnate - an ancient evil that can only be bargained with, never controlled.[2] Some creatures of the Dark Nexus defy both the laws of physics and the laws of biology. Some are also unexpectedly docile. Examples of native lifeforms include the Dark Nexus Manta and Dark Nexus Hound.[3][4]

In order to overcome the Grave Keeper's rebellion at the Towers of Doom, the Raven Lord summoned two beings from the Dark Nexus, setting them loose upon the Grave Keeper's forces.[5]
