2. Introduction

Muradin is one of the most durable Warriors in the game. He excels at disrupting enemy targets by slowing and stunning them with his Basic Abilities. Being a hard engaging initiator, he is capable of dictating the pace of team fights and skirmishes. Muradin players are expected to draw the attention of the enemy to themselves, which allows their teammates to take an advantageous position. By the same token, Muradin has to use his crowd control abilities to peel for his fragile allies, notably Assassins and Specialists.

3. Strengths

  • Very hard hard to kill
  • Strong self-sustain
  • Several crowd control abilities and interrupts
  • Dwarf Toss Icon Dwarf Toss is a great gap-closer and a useful escape ability
  • Allows flexible talent builds depending on the enemy team composition

4. Weaknesses

  • Aiming Storm Bolt Icon Storm Bolt requires some practise
  • Predictable playstyle
  • Bad at clearing Mercenary Camps without Sledgehammer Icon Sledgehammer
  • Limited burst damage potential

5. Role In The Current Meta

Muradin is one of the most resilient Warriors thanks to his large health pool and his Second Wind Icon Second Wind trait. Storm Bolt Icon Storm Bolt and Thunder Clap Icon Thunder Clap provide him with exceptional crowd control, that can be used to either engage the enemy or peel for his allies. In terms of mobility, Dwarf Toss Icon Dwarf Toss proves to be a very effective ability that enables him to close in on fleeing enemies, as well as to escape dangerous situations. Talent-wise, Muradin is equipped with a variety of powerful options. Reverberation Icon Reverberation greatly reduces the attack speed of enemy Assassins, Stoneform Icon Stoneform adds an activatable Regeneration bonus to your Second Wind trait, and Rewind Icon Rewind allows Muradin to chain his Storm Bolt and Thunder Clap abilities in order to disrupt his enemies even more effectively.
