1. Heroes Alarak Works Well With

In this section, we will look at the Heroes that work particularly well with Alarak.

1.1. Medivh

Medivh Portrait Medivh's Portal Icon Portal is great for helping low mobility Heroes shine. This is certainly the case with Alarak, who can be very destructive in close quarters but has no escape naturally.

1.2. Valla

1.3. Sylvanas

Sylvanas Portrait Alarak does not have very good waveclear. Sylvanas is a top tier waveclear specialist. Her multiple sources of ranged damage are a great pairing with a melee Assassin. Mind Control Icon Mind Control can easily setup a kill, as Alarak can follow it up with Discord Strike Icon Discord Strike and Telekinesis Icon Telekinesis. Alternatively, you can double down on the Silences with Wailing Arrow Icon Wailing Arrow and prevent enemy Heroes from using Abilities for up to 4 seconds.

2. Heroes Alarak Is Countered By

In this section, we will look at the heroes that counter Alarak particularly well.

2.1. Tracer

Tracer Portrait Tracer has without question, the highest maneuvering mobility in the game. While Discord Strike Icon Discord Strike would be very bad for Tracer if it hit her, she can easily avoid it; even when it is empowered with the Reckless Strike Icon Reckless Strike Talent. She can dance around Alarak and chip away at his Health relatively safely, unless a teammate helps him or he retreats.

2.2. Sgt. Hammer

Sgt. Hammer Portrait Sgt. Hammer outranges Alarak by quite a lot. If he does get within range of her, she can activate Thrusters Icon Thrusters before Discord Strike Icon Discord Strike can go off. She also has Concussive Blast Icon Concussive Blast which is a wonderful tool for dealing with melee Assassins.

2.3. Li-Ming

Li-Ming Portrait Li-Ming is a very mobile high range caster. She can deal devestating amounts of damage to Alarak, while remaining outside the effective range of his Abilities.
