Alternate Heroes are cosmetics designed to replace the default Hero portrait of the class. These alternate skins do not affect the gameplay, but merely add visual diversity to the game. All of them, apart from the 1000-win alternate portrait of the default hero, come with a unique set of emotes, and plenty of them also have their own thematic card backs. In this guide, we'll explain how to obtain Rogue's alternate Heroes which can be used to replace the default Hero, Valeera Sanguinar.
For Rogue, six alternate Hero skins exist:
- Cap'n Valeera
- Deathmantle Valeera
- Diao Chan Valeera
- Gladiator Valeera
- Maiev Shadowsong
- Nightslayer Valeera
