"Let the slaughter commence"

Hopeless is the seventh episode of the first season of HeroStorm. It stars WronchiAnimation as the guest voice of Leoric.

Plot Edit

In the Infernal Shrines, several minions on both sides are shown fighting. Suddenly, Leoric arrives, scaring the blue minions. Leoric defeats several minions with ease. Suddenly, Thrall arrives to attack him. Thrall easily dodges Leoric's attacks and jumps toward him to retaliate but is hit by Leoric's Drain Hope ability. However, instead of magically draining hope from the enemy's soul as described in-game, Leoric drains his hope by insulting him and telling him stereotypically depressing phrases, such as "Your parents never loved you" and "No one cares about your Facebook status". Thrall is saddened by him and begins crying, allowing Leoric to hit him with his mace and crush him.

Epilogue Edit

Leoric is shown using Drain Hope on Chen by insulting his obesity. Chen is depressed by him and begins drinking brew to drown his sorrows. Leoric attempts to attack him but does minimal damage due to the temporary shields gained from drinking brew.

Characters Edit

Trivia Edit
