Heroes of the Storm

Malygos, The Spell-Weaver, Why not?

I am STILL loving Malygos, for Seven years, Since I was 14(I am currently 20 y/o), for a lot of reasons that I cannot say.

So, I tried to make a custom hero, and here it is– Malygos, the Spellweaver. Enjoy. (Critique Please. Everything was made from my ideas– so I can be wrong.)

Malygos, the Spellweaver(or Spell-Weaver)

He's one of the five Dragon Aspects and the leader of the Blue Dragonflight, also known as the Aspect of Magic. Neltharion the Earth-Warder, or Deathwing, Destroyed his Dragonflight almost completely during the War of the Ancient, which caused Malygos gone mad and insane for over 10,000 Years.

Now the Guardian of Arcane Magic found the way to head to the Nexus, where he can fulfill his duty as the Spellweaver, the Guardian of Arcane Magic and hidden arcanum.

Malygos does not seek out combat; and although he and his dragonflight are still routinely hunted by black dragons, he avoids their kind if at all possible. When he does fight, he engages spellcasters first, using his breath weapon and other abilities to sweep spells from their minds.
