2. Introduction

Anub'arak is an aggressive Warrior. His strongest points are his long-range disruption and his sustained damage. Although considered an archetypal tank, his Health pool is significantly lower than that of other tanks, therefore, Anub'arak must rely on his summons and abilities to survive in battle.

3. Strengths

4. Weaknesses

  • Relatively fragile
  • Summoned Beetles die easily to area of effect damage
  • Main abilities are skillshots that can be dodged

5. Role in the Current Meta

Anub'arak is a unique tank that sacrifices raw durability for more damage and long-range crowd-control-based utility than other tanks. As such, Anub'arak players are expected to aggressively provide crowd-control (through Impale Icon Impale and Burrow Charge Icon Burrow Charge) for their teammates to follow up on with their own abilities, and then pressure fragile backline Heroes. Finding the right time to initiate, peel, and pressure isolated Heroes while avoiding dangerous situations are the skills that one should develop in order to become a strong Anub'arak player.
