Nice guide!

One tip that I would include is that you can hearth back during your Undying passive.May be kind of niche, but it has it's uses :)

I'm sorry but most of these guides I've read on here really just don't make sense. Are these meant for lower MMR players? Higher MMR you don't see half of the picks.

 
Like I know Leo is new, but your talent selection is completely greedy. How do you NOT take 25% damage reduction while in Wraith Walk? You just leech more life back than they can do to you and just soak up damage if they focus you.
 
Too much emphasis on healing and not overall gameplay. Again seems like nothing but low MMR guides here.

Need to go to Tempo Storm or Heroes Fire if you want to the good stuff.
 
Good luck.

Liked the quick talent build in the first page, could be awesome if you could add that to all the heroes, really nice and really friendly to those who are new to the game and when they switch to the talent tab they could get confused, with something like these helps that a lot

Here are the hotslogs for our writers. I don't think we're in the "low MMR" standards here.

You must be joking right? Icy Veins are pro guides, always have been.

The ones you find on Heroes Fire are usually quite ridiculous.

 

Anyhow, I was already played exactly the same build, it's damn awesome! I've been doing ridiculously well with it.

So this guide just confirms the awesomeness of this build biggrin.png

I would like to stress that we're currently working on releasing the full in-depth Leoric guide as soon as possible. 

 

I do not claim this Build to be the one true way of playing Leoric but I'm glad to see that the majority of the feedback has been positive thus far.

 

Thank you everyone!

It seems you dont understand the pics then, take for example ETC, i like the build in this page more than the others BUT the reason why ETC pro gamers pick a lot of other thing is because of the team composition and whats youre role on a team, usually the player in charge of ETC on those teams go for the utility tank build,

 

Now youre blaming them for low mmr guides?????? are those players low mmr?????? i think they are at least rank 1, and they could be masters if the ranking system in Hots allow it.

 

I see these guide be a lot more friendly and be more useful in the quick match set and even on the hero league and, Unless youre comparing Pro gamers with the rest, these are for an all around, take in mind the difference.

 

Im going to put a comparison with hearthstone, a dude is complaining that Grim Patron is OP beacuse the PRO gamers are using it, you see the key word, PRO, its a way different league than just the rest, even if you are on the rank one the xp they have is, usually, a lot more

You should make a note on the Drain Hope ability that both its damage and heal increase over time with the final tick being the most damaging/healing.

Noticed that Spectral Leech is recommended at level 20, but your graphic has the skill marked as not-recommend with a red X, both in the handy listing at the top as well as under the section for level 20 talents.

Spectral Leech is both recommended and not recommended at the same time! Truly, it has mastered Zen!

I am doing quite well with Leo(and have had incredibly satisfying games) so far. I haven't used anything else than Spectral Leech on 20, though. Maybe I just need more games or I am lucky with the team mates I am getting paired with. The additional heal, stacked with the one from Drain Hope and the Renewal, I find, make you very easy to keep alive for the friendly supporters. There is a small range coming with Leo's basic attack that shouldn't be ignored when mentioning the Leech; nice few more swings at a slowed target.  

 

Also, I think Willing Vessel and Crushing Hope should be given consideration if the friendly composition is able to keep up with additional cc, because this makes for a very threatening range anti-tank possibilities. 

 

All in all, a very friendly guide. Appreciated.

I've also happened to discover that tracer is another pretty hard counter to leoric.

How so? Leoric should never look for low percentile health targets for Drain HopeDrain Hope, and his Skeletal SwingSkeletal Swing is a large enough AoE an aggressive Tracer player probably couldn't escape it's reach. Also, Wraith WalkWraith Walk allows him to make her choose between using blinks to chase him or trying to kill him before he escapes, a task made difficult by Hardened BonesHardened Bones (a very good pickup against a tracer, or, in my opinion, anyone!) Even one of his Heroics, EntombEntomb, gets rid of her ability to BlinkBlink in all but one direction, allowing crowd control to take effect and her to be focus fired (if there is not a more valuable target you have trapped, such as the enemy's main healer.) I will say unless she just used up all of her charges of BlinkBlink and her RecallRecallMarch of the Black KingMarch of the Black King will normally be ineffective because she can get out of it's way so fast, but overall, Leoric shouldn't need to focus Tracer, as his bruiser potential and sustainability all come from assaulting high health heroes (E.T.C., Azmodan, Stitches, etc.)

In honesty, I think that comment was from when Tracer was still super OP after just being released. I can't remember when her nerf patch happened, but yeah. At that time, she was probably just an OP pain in the neck and many players were just having circles run round them because they didn't know how to react to her.

A good appraisal of the current state though!

      Season 3 will begin with the release of the Ragnaros patch next week. Several changes have been made to party sizes or placement matches and new rewards were announced!
      Matchmaking or placement matches are tweaked every Season. In Season 3, you won't be able to queue for Ranked in a party. You will be able to do that in Team League. Most of the changes were discussed at BlizzCon.
      Blizzard Entertainment
      SEASON ROLL DATES
      Season 3 will begin as soon as our next patch becomes available for download in each region throughout next week. Check the season start and end dates below to make sure you’re able to dive into the rankings as soon as the season rolls.
      EVENT DATE Season 3 Start Week of December 12* Season 3 End Week of March 13* *Exact date may vary slightly by region.
      SEASON 3 UPDATES
      Party Size Changes for Hero and Team League
      At BlizzCon this year, we mentioned a few party size adjustments that we’d like to try during a future season of ranked play. With the start of Season 3, we’ve decided to remove parties from Hero League and allow smaller party sizes to queue for Team League as a single-season trial. Here are the exact changes we’re going to make with the start of Season 3:
      Hero League Players can no longer queue for Hero League games in parties. Team League Parties containing two, three, or five players can now queue for Team League matches. All players in two and three-player parties must be ranked within a single league of one another in order to queue for Team League. This rule works just like it did in Hero League during previous seasons. Players in full parties can queue for Team League with any mixture of league rankings. While players will need to have access to at least 14 Heroes in order to play Team League, there are still no minimum Hero level requirements in order to queue for Team League matches. Team League will still utilize First Come, First Serve (FCFS) during Draft Mode, which means that parties of two and three players will need to coordinate effectively when drafting their Heroes. Players who are currently silenced or penalized for leaving games early can no longer queue for Team League for the duration of their penalties. Once again, these changes are intended as a trial run during Season 3, and may be reverted next season if we are not happy with how they affect ranked play overall. We’d love to read your thoughts on party sizes in ranked play once you’ve had the chance to play a few matches during the new season. Head to the official Heroes forums to let us know what you think.
      League Distribution Adjustments
      We keep a close eye on league distribution throughout each season of ranked play, and we’d like to make a couple of changes that will improve the overall health of the league system going forward. With the start of Season 3, the population sizes of Silver and Gold leagues will be adjusted so that each will contain a similar number of players. Additionally, we’re going to reduce the population size of Diamond by half in order to help preserve some of the prestige that comes along with brawling your way into the upper leagues. We’ll continue to monitor league sizes going forward, and can make further adjustments in future seasons as needed.
      Placement Matches
      In addition to everything we’ve mentioned so far, there will be 10 placement matches waiting for you on the other side of the season roll that you’ll need to play through in order to receive your initial ranking. To help ensure our ranked modes have the most accurate matchmaking information possible, we’re also going to reset placements for players who have not queued for ranked in a while.
      If you didn’t finish at least 15 Team League games last season, but played a substantial number of Hero League games, and your Hero League MMR is significantly different from your Team League MMR, we will use your Hero League MMR for your initial Team League placements.
      Hero League will work this way as well. If you didn't finish at least 15 Hero League games, we will use your Unranked Draft MMR or Quick Match MMR for initial placements, depending on which mode you played more of during the previous season.
      We also plan to once again loosen the system’s certainty level in everyone’s skill rating, so it’ll be a little easier to move up or down through the rankings during your first few matches this season.
      SEASON 3 REWARDS
      Players who manage to brawl their way up through the leagues during Ranked Season 3 can claim a new portrait, mount, and gold rewards for their achievements in Hero and Team League. Take a look at everything that’s up for grabs this season!

      People have been wondering why Dustin Browder has been so silent during last month. He's stepping down as the Game Director for Heroes of the Storm moving onto a new project whereas Alan Dabiri is stepping up for Browder.
      Dustin Browder went by the name "Rock" on the official forums and this is his goodbye post!
      Dustin Browder
      Working at Blizzard is the coolest. Our leaders support us in making the most awesome games I have ever played. We are encouraged to take the time we need to make them awesome, and then to keep improving them for years after they go live. We sometimes get exciting chances to work on other projects, too. I’m going to take one of those chances to try something new at Blizzard.

      This was not an easy choice to make. I still play Heroes five nights a week, and sitting in the bullpen surrounded by this team has been the most intensely creative experience of my career. But one thing that’s making this decision easier is knowing the future of Heroes is in the right hands. 

      Over the last few months, I have been transitioning my responsibilities to Alan Dabiri, a 20-year Blizzard veteran and a fellow Heroes of the Storm fanatic. In fact, since StarCraft entered the Nexus in September, the Heroes team has been releasing some of our best content to date all without my daily involvement and I’ve been thoroughly blown away with what they have delivered. For those who haven’t seen him on BlizzCon panels or doing interviews, Alan has had a hand in nearly every aspect of Heroes since the beginning, both in his role as our technical director and as part of the team’s collaborative development process. Alan is also a passionate member of the community, and he’s always in touch with what’s happening on Reddit, in our forums, and wherever you’re talking about Heroes. He’s been relentlessly working to make Heroes better for years, and I’m excited that he’ll be continuing to push the game forward as game director.  

      The Heroes of the Storm team is one of the best game teams I have ever had the honor of serving on. I cannot believe how much work and love went into turning what started as a tiny mod into the epic experience that it has become today. And the team just continues to pour their passion, dedication, and expertise into patches, updates, and awesome new game features. 2017 is going to be a huge year for Heroes of the Storm, with new Heroes, Battlegrounds, a massive progression update, improvements to our ladder and matchmaking systems, new social systems, new Brawls, and more. 

      I would like to say a special “Thank You” to everyone in the Heroes community who continues to support us and challenge us to make Heroes better, including everyone who has shared feedback with us on our forums, Reddit, esports sites, and strategy sites, and anyone who has ever sent me a Tweet. You’re the best, and your dedication and passion has made being part of the Heroes community and working on this game a blast.

      While my day-to-day responsibilities might take me away from working on Heroes, I can guarantee I’ll always be watching Heroes esports, cheering on Alan and the dev team, and geeking out about the game. And if you’re looking for me, you can find me playing Ranged Assassin or Support in the Nexus.

      Alan Dabiri the new Game Director, presented some big plans for the game in the Polygon interview. 
      Dabiri was a strong supporter of the concept which slowly became the newly-introduced Heroes Brawl Game Mode.
