Raynor's old appearance

Raynor appeared in early builds of Heroes of the Storm. He was good at supporting fellow heroes and troops and could bestow bonuses on them. He benefited from intelligence items.

As with all heroes in the game in its early development, he had a "good" and "evil" version. The former was much like his appearance in Wings of Liberty. As an evil hero however, he became "Emperor Raynor", complete with more evil-looking armor and weaponry.[1]
