Emojis are a cosmetic feature in Heroes of the Storm that allow players' to make chat much more expressive both in and out of the game. They are obtained by crafting (IconShard 40 per pack/IconShard 60 for event) or via Loot Chests, with each Hero having multiple emoji packs to choose from.

Each player starts with five basic "Nexus" packs. There are also emoji sets not related to particular Heroes, such as "celebration" or "food" packs. Players’ Emojis will automatically convert to match the Heroes they are currently using, so long as they own that Hero’s Emoji Packs. This will occur in-game, as well as after choosing a Hero during Hero Select or in Draft Lobbies.

Up to 10 Emojis can be set as Favorites. By right-clicking Emojis, they can be to added or removed from the Favorites tab. Blizzard has not implemented the ability to disable emojis.

Use Edit

  • Use Favorites during a match by clicking the heart button added to the right side of the in-game Chat bar, or by using their specific name shortcuts (always starting with ":").
  • In-game chat messages are limited to 10 Emojis per message. A notification will display on-screen when attempting to enter more than 10 Emojis in a single message.

Chat Shortcuts Edit

There are chat shortcuts for the emoji's to display, without having to type out the full name of an emoji.

  • :) is :nexushappy:
  • :D is :nexuslol:
  • :( is :nexussad:
  • :P is :nexussilly:
  • :| is :nexusmeh:
  • :@ is :nexusangry:
  • B) is :nexuscool:
  • ^^; is :nexusoops:
  • :* is :nexuslove:
  • :O is :nexuswow:

If you are currently playing, or have selected, a Hero in-game and own said Hero's emoji packs, it will automatically use theirs instead of the default Nexus emoji. For example, typing :) while playing as Abathur will automatically display it as Abahappy.
