    A Korean team was invited to play the new HotS patch. They discovered this easter egg in Braxis Holdout, one of the new maps:



    Was a big fan of the Blademaster in Warcraft 3 so I'd be keen to see him in HotS, though this could just be an easter egg.

    This character could bring me to the game, as in DOTA played their version and in wc3 always chose blademaster type characters.

    Samuro is one of the named Blademasters in the Warcraft 3 campaign. He also appears in the video in the first post.

    There are a bunch of other named Blademasters, though most of them are randomised names for the in-game hero:
    Grom Hellscream is in the list because he used the Blademaster hero in WC3, but I'd say that is mainly because they didn't develop a unique skillset for him. It doesn't mention it anywhere else.

    They've released his spotlight:

    (Q): Mirror Image - 2 images that deal reduced damage
    (W): Critical Strike - Passively makes you crit every few hits, can be activated for a crit next attack
    (E): Wind Walk - INVISIBILITY! Similar to Nova/Zeratul (you activate it though), except can't be removed in the 1st second. Allows unit walking
    (R1): Bladestorm - Channeled spinning blades of death. Can move. Is unstoppable.
    (R2): Illusion Master - Allows direct control of Mirror Images. Activate this ulti to swap places with a mirror image (WORKS FROM ANYWHERE)
    (D - Trait): Advancing Strike - Gain movement speed after each attack



    Plus awesome bonus sketch

    They're using the same moveset from the Blademaster hero in WC3, except for Illusion Master. You're thinking of Juggernaut who had the Blademaster model, though only shared 2 of the abilities: http://dota2.gamepedia.com/Juggernaut
