heroes Our HotS Guides Have Been Updated For The Gul'dan Patch

1 post in this topic

enDVG0x.jpg

Our Heroes of the Storm guide writers have been working nonstop updating the guides for most heroes in preparation for today's patch!

The Gul'dan patch has launched today in the US and will go live tomorrow in European servers; you can read the patches notes for it here. The patch is one of the biggest in the history of the game and it has brought huge talent, ability and general balance changes to most heroes.

Obviously, we had to amend our HotS guides and, as you can see from the site's Changelog, our writers have put a lot of effort on this task. Still, I am going to briefly present the changes to these guides.

First of all, we have a preview guide on the man of the hour himself. We are talking, of course, about Gul'dan, Darkness Incarnate, whose guide was written by Micekrispies. Be on the lookout for more news about Gul'dan this week!

Get ready for the big one, now! The talent builds, ability previews and/or specific tips have been adjusted for the following heroes: Abathur, Sonya, Uther, Jaina, Greymane, Cho, Gall, Gazlowe, Zagara, Tyrael, The Lost Vikings, Stitches, Murky, Muradin, Lunara, Kharazim, Leoric, Kael'thas, Dehaka, Brightwing, Azmodan and Arthas.

I want to specifically mention Zagara and Kerrigan. Both of these heroines were almost completely remade, so our guides for them are not entirely done. Some significant parts of the guides on them have been updated to some extent, but there is still work to be done!

You can keep track of all the changes and the updates on the guides for all games on our site in the Changelog.

      Next week, Ragnaros will hit test servers. It's likely there will also be a balance update. Trikslyr wrote on reddit that a new balance Q/A is scheduled for December 6 and will last roughly 1.5 hours.

      BlizzCon has come and gone, and as we move forward, we’d like to touch base with the community in regards to Heroes of the Storm’s Balance! We’ll be hosting a Q&A on Tuesday, December 6th at 1:30 p.m. PST right here in /r/HeroesoftheStorm, and the following game designers will be here tackle your questions about upholding balance in the Nexus:
      /u/Blizz_Daybringer – Brett Crawford (Balance Designer) /u/BlizzCooper – Matt Cooper (Lead Balance Designer) /u/BlizzNeyman – Alex Neyman (Balance Designer) /u/BlizzAZJackson – Adam Jackson (Balance Designer) /u/BlizzClaudio – Claudio Gentilini (Producer) /u/Blizz_AKlontzas - Alexander Klontzas (Producer) The Q&A will last roughly 1.5 hours, so make sure to post your questions about game balance and live updates in the thread we’ll be creating on the morning of December 6th.

Feel free to upvote those questions if you’d like to see answers to them.

      The last balance update dates back to November 15 when Varian was released. We've seen some hotfixes on November 21. My wild guess would be balance update next week and Ragnaros live the week after. Reworked Haunted Mines should be back too.

      The Nexus Challenge has been introduced in mid-November and is here to stay until January 4, 2017. It offers quite interesting Heroes that are a beneficial addition to your roster, a 31-day Stimpack and even more rewards if you're into Overwatch.
      If you feel like it's taking too long to complete the 30 games then you're doing it wrong! Most of this is common sense, but you can easily finish it in several hours, because AI games with Friends count towards the 30 game requirement.
      First, join an in-game chat, such as /lfg or /reddit. It makes looking for other people who also want to complete the objective much easier. The easiest method is to complete 30 games with AI set to Beginner with 4 other players. You can completely ignore objectives and all players should focus on pushing a single lane together. This is called AI rush and my games usually take no more than 5-6 minutes before we destroy the enemy core.  I've been even able to complete a game in 4:40.
      Tips
      If you're joining a random group, don't forget to right-click a player's portrait and add him as a friend. I usually do this with every group member, because sometimes a single person doesn't confirm it. Don't start the game by clicking "Ready" unless at least one player has accepted your friend request or the next game played won't count toward the Nexus Challenge requirement. We've got guides ready for all the Heroes you get from the challenge Auriel Greymane Kerrigan Li-Ming Zarya Ideal compositions for speed runs, should include Sylvanas (to disable structures), Auriel (no mana dependency), Zarya or Tassadar for shields etc. (thanks to @Krazyito for pointing out).
