Rehgar is countered by
Rehgar's stronger maps None
Rehgar's average maps Battlefield of Eternity Blackheart's Bay Cursed Hollow Dragon Shire Garden of Terror Sky Temple Tomb of the Spider Queen
Rehgar's weaker maps None

Ability Usage:

  • Using Ghost Wolf Icon Ghost Wolf's empowered Basic Attacks while fighting enemy Heroes or clearing Mercenary Camps increases your combat performance significantly.
  • It is better to cast Ancestral Healing Icon Ancestral Healing too early than too late. The more the enemy focuses on killing a single target of your team, the earlier you should cast Ancestral Healing on them.
  • Lightning Shield Icon Lightning Shield can be cast on Earthbind Totem Icon Earthbind Totem to damage Minion waves from a safe distance.

2. Introduction

Rehgar is a melee support Hero with a lot of mobility and great utility. He offers some of the most powerful healing spells currently available in Heroes of the Storm, which makes him an enrichment for almost every team composition.

3. Strengths

  • Can use his Ghost Wolf Icon Ghost Wolf form even while moving and fighting, which provides unique mobility during team fights
  • Ancestral Healing Icon Ancestral Healing is the most potent single target heal currently available
  • Strong talent choices, which allow for flexible builds
  • Works well in a lot of different team compositions
  • Capable of clearing Mercenary Camps on his own very quickly

4. Weaknesses

  • Ancestral Healing Icon Ancestral Healing does require some experience to be used efficiently
  • Very low damage output until Level 13;
  • Very Mana dependant early on
  • Short casting range on his abilities compared to other support Heroes
  • Vulnerable to crowd control

5. Role in the Current Meta

There is hardly any other support Hero in Heroes of the Storm that is as versatile and adaptable as Rehgar. Rehgar's kit, which consists of a mixture of heals, shields, and crowd control, proves to be one of the most useful and flexible ones in the game. Combine that with his exceptional mobility granted by his Ghost Wolf Icon Ghost Wolf trait, and you will find a support Hero that is able to swiftly rotate around the map in order to help his teammates at the front. While Rehgar may not be the greatest duelist, his enhanced basic attack during Ghost Wolf form will allow him to capture Mercenary Camps on his own with great ease. Furthermore, Rehgar allows you to use different talent builds, depending on what situation you find yourself in, without losing much of his strength.

Another great thing about Rehgar in the current meta is the fact that he shines with a variety of Heroes, such as Greymane, Illidan, or Muradin, especially thanks to his Ancestral Healing Icon Ancestral Healing Heroic Ability, which is capable of almost instantly restoring even severely injured allies. Talents such as Cleanse Icon Cleanse, Earth Shield Icon Earth Shield, or Storm Shield Icon Storm Shield will protect your teammates very effectively as well, whereas Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust and Rising Storm Icon Rising Storm will provide you with some additional damage potential against multiple enemy targets. All things considered, Rehgar is a very strong pick in the current meta, that is very satisfying to play at the same time due to his diversified and impactful playstyle.
