General Information

Welcome to our Gall guide for Heroes of the Storm. Here you will learn everything you need to know in order to play Gall in a competitive environment, whether you play on your own or with a team.

Note that this guide is still in our older format and it will eventually be moved to the new format. More information here.

Gall's weaker maps None

2. Introduction

Gall is the Assassin half of the entity controled by two players known as Cho'gall. The player in charge of Gall has the burden of using the entity's most powerful abilities, whereas the second player, in control of Cho, acts as the "driver" that controls Cho's more simple abilities, physical position. and Basic Attacks. Gall's strongest points are his high area of effect damage and outstanding resilience, due to being tied to Cho's extremely tough body. Should Cho be killed, Gall will die with him, instantly yielding two kills worth of experience to their opponents.

3. Remark

Ǵiven the highly unusual nature of Gall, we highly recommend that you use this guide along with our Cho guide found here so as to get a better understanding of the Hero.

4. Strengths

  • Humongous Health pool
  • Abilities do not use Mana
  • Outstanding duelist
  • Great waveclear
  • Permanently tied to Cho, a Warrior, making coordination easy

5. Weaknesses

  • Reliant on skillshots
  • Easily countered during drafts
  • Limited utility beyond raw damage
  • Deaths are twice as punishing, as they mean losing two Heroes
  • Only allows a team to have 4 Heroes, reducing overall map presence
  • Very reliant on Heroic Abilities to significantly impact team fights

6. Role in the Current Meta

Gall is permanently attached to Cho's body, and as such, goes wherever Cho goes. Gall's abilities have little to no utility to them, and are in stead capable of dealing large amounts of damage to multiple enemies. As such, Gall's primary goal is to lay waste to whatever comes within range and coordinate with the Cho player so as to maximise the effectiveness of their abilities.

Given the nature of Cho'gall, communication is extremely important between the two players that are sharing the Hero, but also, with the remaining members of the team that must deal with the unusual situation of playing with only four total bodies.

Drafting-wise, Cho and Gall should almost always be picked last, for certain Heroes tend to hard-counter them. It is also important to draft them along a Hero that is capable of performing the duties of a tank, as Cho'gall is unsuitable to effectively perform such duties despite being labeled as a Warrior by the game.
