Best duo lane comps?

8 posts in this topic

Hi,

I'm still kind of new to Heroes of the Storm and I would like to know what are the strongest or best hero combinations for duo lanes, or is it impossible to say without knowing the map?
Difficulty does not matter (with the exception of TLV) as both my friend and I are experienced from other MOBAs.

I know that every hero guide has a list of heroes that have synergy with them, but I don't know what are the best synergies in the entire game.

Generally, any tank and support works well as a duo. If you want a proper list though:

  • Sonya + Rehgar
  • Sonya + Lt. Morales
  • Tassadar + Illidan (INSANELY strong, but you gotta be good at them)
  • Muradin + Tyrande
  • Tyrael + Greymane (Tyrael is basically a supporty tank)
  • Li-Ming + Xul

Thanks. Illidank is my main hero and I really enjoy playing him, so we will try the Tassadar+Illidan for those 1337 wombo combo plays.

Also, any good hero trios for Battlefield of Eternity (or possibly for Haunted Mines, should it return to rotation)?

My favorites would have to be:

Greymane + Lt. Morales

Nazeebo + Kael'Thas

Chen + (Anyone who can heal) lol

Seems to me the best heroes on Battlefield are ones that can do lots of damage to the immortals when they're dueling. Heroes like Greymane, Jaina, Li Ming, or Hammer. Map control/mobility is less important on that map since it's small and there are only two lanes. Pushing is similarly less important since taking an immortal pushes plenty.

btw I loathe Battlefield, and it's certainly not one of my best maps, so take my advice with a grain of salt heh.

Trios will depend on how hard you can pressure. A passive trio can still get dominated by a very aggressive duo. Generally, you can dominate lanes with a support (Morales/Brightwing/Tassadar) + tank (Muradin/Diablo) + big pressure hero (Sonya/Illidan).

You want a comp that forces the enemy to fight, like with Muradin's stun, Diablo's knockback, Sonya's grab etc.

Your support needs to be able to either allow you to overextend for kills (Morales) or have serious pressure themselves (Tassadar/Tyrande).

It's also worth noting that you can use a trio that features a big pushing hero like Sylvanas. This isn't the type of trio that forces kills and fights, it instead forces huge tower pressure and requires a lane rotation from the enemy team. It's basically a huge PITA.

I believe this is mentioned in some of your other guides, but Tyrande is very good with any other bruiser with crowd control. You can even go on the fragile side (She works great with The Butcher because of his guaranteed stun), but Arthas, Sonya, and anyone else which can get a stun to help her land Lunar FlareLunar Flare works great. Her vulnerable effect is very powerful as well and helps with securing kills.

Tyrande is perfect for anything that requires a skillshot. If Tyrande lands her stun, you can simply unload everything your partner has (looking at you Li-Ming!).

      You heard right. 
      Blizzard just confirmed it on facebook.

      Recorded proof for ya here.

      Out of boredom during long work shifts, I came with this idea to allow players to come up with their own concepts.
      In this thread you'll be free to create your own ideas of Heroes, Maps and skins. Shower thoughts are always nice, and I'd like to see your ideas. Plus, who knows, maybe we can send this to Blizzard and light some bulbs.
      Allow me to start with my idea for a Hero I've been wanting to see for a long time:
      HERO: Broll Bearmantle
      ROLE: Multiclass (Warrior/Assassin/Support)
      ABILITIES:
      • Trait: Shadowmeld (30 sec CD)
      Broll slip into the shadows, entering in stealth for 5 seconds. As soon as activated, Broll becomes invulnerable for 1 second. Players can move while in Shadowmeld, however, at 50% movement speed.
      • Q Skill: Mangle (6 sec CD)
      Broll mangles the target with his fist weapons, dealing increased physical damage.
      • W Skill: Barkskin (15 sec CD)
      Broll's skin becomes as hard as bark, reducing all damage taken by 30%. It can be cast on an ally, however the effect is reduced to 15%. Can be used while stunned or feared.
      • E Skill: Rejuvenation (5 sec CD)
      Broll heals a target ally over time, for 15 sec.
      <This would basically function like Malfurion's Regrowth, but without the initial heal burst; however, the heal over time would be superior to Malfurion's.>
      • Z Mount: Travel Form (0 sec CD)
      Similarly to Rehgar, this is an instantly cast, where Broll shapeshifts into the Stag Form, increasing his movement speed by 20%. Other players can left click Broll and mount on him. Attacking while in this form causes Broll to slow opponents by 20% for 0.5 seconds, and causes him to revert to his normal form.
      __________________________________
      • Heroic Ability 1: Guardian Affinity
      Broll shapeshifts into a Bear permanently for the rest of the match. His health is increased by 50%, however, attack speed is reduced by 20%. <Similar to Varian's Protection Heroic>
      While in this form, his abilities change:
      • Trait: Shadowmeld > Frenzied Regeneration (45 sec)
      In addition to the stealth, also gives Broll a shield, but its CD is increased by 15 sec.
      • Q Skill: Mangle > Thrash (6 sec CD)
      Broll strikes all nearby enemies, dealing physical damage and slowing them for 30% and reducing their attack speed by 10%.
      • W Barkskin > Ironfur (30 sec CD)
      Broll's skin becomes as hard as iron, reducing all damage taken by 50%, however its CD is increased by 15 seconds. If cast on an ally, it will be default Barskin skill.
      • E Skill: Rejuvenation (5 sec CD)
      No changes.
      • Z Mount: Travel Form (0 sec CD)
      No changes.
      • R Skill: Might of Ursoc (30 sec CD)
      Broll invokes the spirit of Ursoc to deal damage and stun the primary opponent for 3 seconds, and nearby opponents are stunned by 1.5 seconds.
      __________________________________
      • Heroic Ability 2: Feral Affinity
      Broll shapeshifts into a Cat permanently for the rest of the match. His movement speed is increased by 15%, and his attack speed by 75%. However, his attack damage is reduced by 20%, and his health by 25%.
      While in this form, his abilities change:
      • Trait: Shadowmeld > Prowl (10 sec)
      It now permanently puts Broll in stealth until he attacks or is attacked. He can now move at normal speed while in stealth, but no longer becomes invulnerable as soon it is activated.
      • Q Skill: Mangle > Rake (6 sec CD)
      Broll rakes the opponent dealing high physical damage and causing a bleed effect that causes the opponent to take damage over 5 seconds. The damage of Rake is doubled while in stealth.
      • W Barkskin
      No changes.
      • E Skill: Rejuvenation (5 sec CD)
      No changes.
      • Z Mount: Travel Form (0 sec CD)
      Broll becomes a cheetah instead of a stag. The movement speed is increased to 30%, but players can longer mount on Broll.
      • R Skill: Tiger Fury (60 sec CD)
      Broll goes on a Frenzy, increasing all damage done by 15% for 8 seconds, and causing Rake to deal its bleed as instant damage.
      __________________________________
      • Heroic Ability 3: Restoration Affinity
      Broll's mana regeneration is increased by 15%, however, his attack damage is reduced by
      While in this form, his abilities change:
      • Trait: Shadowmeld > Renewal (30 sec)
      It also instantly heals Broll by 15% of his maximum health, but its cooldown is increased by 20 seconds.
      • Q Skill: Mangle > Typhoon (8 sec CD)
      Broll strikes the opponent with his fists, dealing small damage knocking them back. It also causes a small burst of wind that pushes all nearby enemies slightly. However, its cooldown is increased by 2 seconds.
      • W Barkskin
      No changes.
      • E Skill: Rejuvenation > Lifebloom (7 sec CD)
      Each healing tick is increased by 0.5% over 15 seconds, and after it expires, it blooms, instantly healing by a large ammount. However, its cooldown is increased by 2 seconds.
      • Z Mount: Travel Form (0 sec CD)
      No changes.
      • R Skill: Wild Growth (60 sec CD)
      Broll heals the entire party instantly for a small ammount, followed by a large ammount over 7 seconds that decays per tick. Global range.

      This is just a brainstorm, like the title suggests. A lot could be polished or changed. I considered concepting the idea of having Rage and Energy for the Bear and Cat forms, respectively, but I think this would overcomplicate things. I am not sure if Shadowmeld should be a trait or a separate skill (assigned to the 1 key).
      Maybe Broll isn't the best pick for it, since he is probably just Guardian lorewise, but I couldn't think of another remarkable Druid.
