Nexus Banner

Free for all players.
Representing the Nexus.

Banners are cosmetic features in Heroes of the Storm that allow players' Heroes to raise a flag whenever they assert their dominance on the battleground. They are obtained via crafting through shards, or by opening Loot Chests. There are also limited edition Banners, that are often quest rewards for specific events.

The basic Nexus Banner is available for free, by default. Basic banners cost IconShard 40, while the more intricate warbanners cost IconShard 100.

Banners are automatically planted a upon destroying Keeps and Forts, capturing Merc Camps, or completing Battleground Objectives, and will show the name of the player who planted the banner.

Banners also appear at the results screen at the MVP highlight, with a special animation for each one.
