The updates for World of Warcraft Dragonflight have had fans busy for a while now, and they are hungry for more. After they are done raiding, they are looking forward to what is next for WoW.

Of course, they can play the updates on the Classic servers, but some fans want to get their hands on The War Within update. That is because Hero Talents are finally coming to World of Warcraft. Here, we are going to go over everything we know about Hero Talents that is coming in the next update.

According to Blizzard, Hero Talents is essentially a new form of character progression in World of Warcraft. Think of it as a way to further tweak each character in two different ways. Each class will have up to three types of Hero Talents, with each specialization having access to two of them.

The Hero Talents can give players new skills, new buffs, and a lot more. What Hero Talents does is allow players to have more freedom of choice of how to play the game. Blizzard is claiming that these Hero Talents will not have to be locked into a specific build like other forms of Character Progression, but we will have to see what truth there is to that.

Hero Talents are not available from the start. Hero Talents will only be unlocked at level 71 in The War Within expansion. Once Hero Talents are unlocked, players can earn Hero Talent points until level 80. Each level will give players a single Hero Talent point. Each Hero Talent will have starter builds available, and players can save their builds like anything else.

Once Hero Talents are unlocked, players will have to choose which Hero Talent they will want for the future. For example, Fury Warriors can choose either the Mountain Thane Hero Talent or the Slayer Hero Talent. Arms Warriors can choose the Slayer Hero Talent or the Colossus Hero Talent. Protection Warriors can choose Mountain Thane or Colossus.
