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!

      Valeera's patch adds the Cursed Hollow Sandbox to the game and you can select the mode under "Custom Games". It gives you several cheats which impact the game. Some options are well-known from the game's Try Mode.
      Cheats
      Cheats can impact a match from the start until the very end. At any point during the game, you have access to the commands below.
      The first option is to "Share Cheats", which gives all players access to fiddle around with game settings. Toggle Minions for both teams On/Off. Reset Structures Toggle Tribute Spawning: On/Off Move Here: Teleports you wherever you want. Reset Talents: Resets all talents. Reset Cooldowns: Resets all cooldowns Set Team Level: You can separately set the Level of both teams from 1 to 30. Toggle Infinite Mana: Stops mana depleting. It can be adjusted for both teams separately. Set Damage Dealt: Set the damage you or the enemy team deals from 1 to 300%. Set Damage Taken: Set the damage your or the enemy team takes from 1 to 300%.
      What do you think about it? I'd love if we were able to set up our own custom brawls with modifiers.

      Samuro, Varian, Ragnaros, Zul'jin and now Valeera. That's five assassins from the Warcraft universe that were added to the game one after another. The community wasn't very pleased with how the Warcraft heroes have been preferred lately and Game Designer Centaurik wrote a long post explaining their hero choices, admitting that they overdid it with assassins, promising more Hero diversity in 2017.
      TL;DR
      Expect more hero diversity introduced in 2017. There will definitely be more support heroes. The team has a fixed hero release schedule that allows to bring in a new hero every three or four weeks, but at the same time there's little room for reshuffling, as the hero development process starts 9 to 12 months before release. Samuro was considered one of the first heroes to be added to the game and after two years he got released. Varian was considered to be a Gladiator archetype, which was then renamed to Multi-Class. Ragnaros was a Specialist (Core-Replacement hero) first, designed to influence the battlefield from afar, but was redesigned to what we see today. Zul'jin was added, because a Sustained Range Attacker was not added to the game for quite some time. Even though the latest hero releases are all assassins, they offer a very different experience, e.g. Valeera is very different from existing assassins and you'll need to figure out how to effectively use her combo mechanics and strike foes from the shadows. Centaurik
      We’ve seen a lot of discussions about our recent hero releases in the community lately, and we agree that we definitely overdid it a little bit with the Warcraft assassins over the past few months. I wanted to step into this thread to say thank you for sharing your feedback on this with us, and to hopefully give you a little more context into how we wound up with what’s happened.

      Something that’s important to consider is that our development process for each hero starts nine months to a full year ahead of their planned release dates. After a certain point in the pipeline it becomes very difficult to shuffle heroes around without slipping on our goal of putting a new hero into your hands every three to four weeks. By the time we took a step back and said “You know, we sure have released a lot of assassins lately…” we were well past the point where we could change things up. :-(

      First up was Samuro, whom this team has been wanting to do for over 2 years, and we were finally in a place we could ship him. Awesome! Next up we had Varian. He was what we had labeled a “Gladiator” archetype, which would later be renamed to Multi-Class (as we felt it was more true to what it meant).

      Next up was Ragnaros. Originally, we had pitched him as a Core-Replacement Hero, who would influence the battlefield from afar. Something we had penciled in as a Specialist. About 2 months into development, however, we moved away from that design to the Ragnaros you know today. We considered leaving him a Specialist, but thought his role as a Bruiser would be more accurately reflected as Assassin, a la Thrall.

      A while after we were into Rag and Varian design, we realized that Zul’jin would make an excellent addition, as we hadn’t added a Sustained Ranged Attacker to the game in quite some time. However, we realized we now had 4 Warcraft Heroes in a row. We decided to stick with it, due to what kind of flexibility we had (or really, didn’t have) in maneuvering the schedule. 

      About 3 months after we had started work on the next set of Heroes to follow Zul’jin, we had to shuffle up Valeera to follow Zul’jin first, due the needs of the team as a whole. At the time, we didn’t pause to consider the ramifications of what it would mean as a player experience, in terms of getting a diverse roster of Heroes in regards to our Archetype definitions and our Universes. 

      At the time, we were looking at the Heroes, and from a very Game Designer view, we saw this: Stealthed 3-Card-Monté assassin Multi-Class Hero: Warrior, Bruiser, Dive Assassin Bruiser with Heavy Map Implications Sustained Ranged Attacker Enemy Carry Disabler
      Now, while to us that’s 5 very different experiences (and in fact a new role in the form of a Hero that focuses on Disabling a team’s primary damage), in the current Heroes Archetype listing, that’s 5 Heroes that can be called “Assassin”. 

      We realize that unleashing so many Warcraft assassins back to back wasn’t the best decision in terms of hero diversity, and isn’t quite as exciting for those of you who don’t necessarily enjoy assassins as much as the other roles. 

      However, once you’ve had the chance to try out Valeera, we’re confident you’ll find her playstyle is pretty different from our other assassins. Internally, we’ve had a blast striking from the shadows and figuring out all of the various ways to use her combo mechanics effectively, and we hope that you’ll find her just as fun to play as we do. 

      We know there are also some of you who have concerns about another stealth hero joining the Nexus so soon after Samuro’s release. Valeera has undergone many rounds of playtesting and iteration, and one of our primary focuses was on not only how much fun it is to play as her, but how it feels to play against her as well. We think we’ve reached a nice middle ground, and we’d love to hear your thoughts after you’ve played a few games with and against the rogue.

      Now that Valeera is out in the wild, we think you’re going to be pretty happy with the rest of the heroes we have planned for 2017. The feedback you, the community, has provided us has greatly influenced our planning. You can definitely expect more diversity in terms of both role and universe compared to 2016. I would hope that in January of 2018, we’ll be able to look back and see a much wider offering of Heroes (including, yes, Supports!). 

      We can’t wait to show you what we have in store! Thank you so much for continuing to provide feedback! We’ll see you in the Nexus!
