1. Battlefield of Eternity

Battlefield of Eternity
Battlefield of Eternity

The High Heavens and the Burning Hells clash, quite literally, in a battlefield that represents their everlasting struggle. Two Immortals, ancient warriors locked in a duel to the death, need your help to prevail against their eternal foe. Vanquish the enemy Immortal, and you'll find yourself charging over hallowed or profane ground—right onto the enemy's doorstep.

Engage in Immortal Combat

Two Immortals fight at the center of the map. Help your Immortal prevail, and lay waste to the enemy's Forts.

Employ Eternal Tactics

Protect your Immortal by obliterating the opposing team, or descend upon the enemy Immortal with relentless fury.

Hire Unique Mercenaries

Bolster your forces with Fallen Shaman and cunning Impalers, who will lend their powers to your cause!

Battlefield of Eternity is a map with only two lanes instead of three, which puts a lot of focus on controlling Map Objectives such as the Immortal and Mercenaries in order to get rid of the enemy Structures as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, Rehgar cannot add much damage to an ongoing push which is why it is all the more important to provide your team with heals to keep your allies in good shape.

Winning a match on Battlefield of Eternity goes hand in hand with dominating the middle of the map in order to weaken the enemy Immortal and summon your own one. Rehgar's Earthbind Totem Icon Earthbind Totem provides great zoning and focus on slowed targets, especially while defending your own Immortal. Try to stay close to the rest of your team at all times, as Rehgar is supposed to keep his team sustained at all times.

2. Blackheart's Bay

Blackheart's Bay
Blackheart's Bay

The ghost pirate Blackheart has staked his claim upon the realm of Mistharbor. His undead pirate crew has poured onto the streets, claiming the once thriving marketplace as their new den of villainy.

Collect Doubloons

Attack treasure chests, mercenaries, and skeletons to collect doubloons.

Turn in Doubloons

Hand your doubloons over to Blackheart or you will drop them all when you die!

Bombard Your Enemies

After receiving enough doubloons from your team, Blackheart will bombard your enemy's forts!

On Blackheart's Bay you will most likely find yourself rotating a lot between top and mid lane. Try to avoid solo laning in bottom lane, because your team will be dependent on your support as soon as the first Treasure Chests are going to spawn. Healing Totem Icon Healing Totem will have a tremendous impact during the first skirmishes, since no other support Hero gains access to a Healing Ward before Level 4. Keep in mind that your Lightning Shield Icon Lightning Shield is an excellent tool when it comes to quickly destroying the Treasure Chests.

Rehgar should constantly look out for good opportunities to clear the easy Mercenary Camp on his team's side of the map, or perhaps even sneak to the hard Mercenary Camp on bottom lane if you get the impression that the enemy team did not spot you beforehand. Always make sure to let your team know what you are up to by pinging on the minimap, to avoid confusion.

3. Cursed Hollow

Cursed Hollow
Cursed Hollow

As one of the first and most ancient realms pulled into the Nexus, the realm of Raven Court has grown large and prosperous over the millennia. The province of Cursed Hollow, a gothic landscape of twisting villages and farmlands, serves as an ideal trial grounds for the Heroes of the Storm.

Collect Tributes

The Raven Lord will periodically create tributes. Gather them for your team!

Curse Your Enemies

Upon capturing three tributes, the Raven Lord will curse your enemies.

Cursed Forts and Minions

Cursed forts will not attack, and cursed minions are reduced to 1 health.

Just like on Blackheart's Bay, Healing Totem Icon Healing Totem can be an incredibly strong talent to make sure your team is going to win the sustain battle for the first Tribute, which is going to spawn before either of the teams hit Level 4. Feral Heart Icon Feral Heart is definitely recommended on this map, since its long paths are ideal to regenerate Mana and health while rotating around the map. Make sure to continuously soak lanes, especially if your team does not want to contest Tributes. Becoming a team player will be one of the most important tasks on this map, so always make sure to stick close to your allies, especially after both teams reach Level 10.

4. Dragon Shire

Dragon Shire
Dragon Shire

These lush and deceptively peaceful gardens have grown over time, covering the once molten realm known as Dragon Spire. Beneath this verdant paradise, the ancient power of the dragons was sealed away... and their descendants have neither forgotten nor forgiven the trespasses of those who wronged them.

Control the Shrines

There are two shrines your team needs to control to activate the Dragon Knight's statue.

Free the Dragon Knight

While activated, bring a hero to the statue to free the Dragon Knight from his prison!

Devastate Enemy Forts

Use the Dragon Knight's immense power to level enemy forts!

Dragon Shire is a very favourable map to play on as Rehgar. It combines a lot of elements that will fit your playstyle, such as the opportunity to clear important Mercenary Camps on the bottom half of the map, or fighting skirmishes for Shrine control. Furthermore, due to the map's symmetric design and short walking paths, it will be very easy for you to rotate between all three lanes in order to keep your allies sustained. One important thing to keep in mind is the fact that you should never opt for the control over the Dragonknight. This rule applies to all supporters in general, since your team cannot attempt to start a team fight or push without any healing support on its side.

5. Garden of Terror

Garden of Terror
Garden of Terror

Once the royal gardens were a splendor to behold. But lately a shadow has fallen over them... Writhing tendrils creep across the grounds at night, and a number of servants have disappeared while walking its twisting paths. Queen Nightshade claims to be unaware of these incidents, but some are beginning to suspect she has gone mad.

Fight the Shamblers

At night, Shamblers will rise from the gardens.

Collect Seeds

Kill the Shamblers and collect seeds for your team.

Control Garden Terror

With 100 seeds, control a garden terror and destroy your enemies!

Garden of Terror will provide you with plenty of chances to fight neutral Monsters and Mercenaries all by yourself. In addition to the regular easy and hard Mercenary Camps on both sides of the map, you will fight Shamblers and neutral Garden Bosses. After Level 7, experienced Rehgar players will even be able to kill the big Garden Boss on their own, thanks to their Healing Totem Icon Healing Totem and Earth Shield Icon Earth Shield talents.

During the early game you should stick with the majority of your team, which means you will likely end up close to mid lane, and the triple lane on either bottom or top, depending on where your teammates decided to go. Once again, we would like to encourage you not to solo lane even though Rehgar is not actually bad at it. However, you will quickly realise how much more useful he can be when being around his allies in order to keep them alive.

6. Sky Temple

Sky Temple
Sky Temple

Floating above the vast desert sands of Luxoria, the Sky Temple serves as a center of worship for the snake god, Ka. He stores his great power within the temples, each of them secured by guardians. With such defenses, no warriors would think to seize the god's power for themselves... or would they?

Capture the Temples

Temples will periodically awaken. Stand within their grounds to capture their power!

Hold the Temples

Remain firm and the temple will unleash a blistering onslaught on your enemy's forts!

Defend the Temples

Guardians will try to wrest control of their temples from your team. Hold them off to keep the temple's power for yourselves!

Pushing and maintaining lane control is crucial on Sky Temple during the early stages of the game. The first two temples will always activate on the top and middle location of the map, so try to maintain a healthy amount of Mana in order to participate in early skirmishes and team fights for early temple control. The second temple that is going to get activated will always be the bottom one. As Rehgar, it is imperative that you rotate quickly enough to fight along your teammates as your Chain Heal Icon Chain Heals and Healing Totem Icon Healing Totem are essential tools to sustain them through longer team fights.

7. Tomb of the Spider Queen

Tomb of the Spider Queen
Tomb of the Spider Queen

The long forgotten tombs of Luxoria have found a new master. Deep within their timeworn chambers, the Spider Queen Neithis stirs from her ancient slumber. Present her with the gems of power she seeks, and you may just escape with your lives.

Collect Gems

Enemy spider minions and Heroes drop magical gems upon death. Gather as many as you can!

Turn in Gems

Relinquish your gems at one of the Spider Queen's altars or you will drop them all when you die!

Summon Webweavers

Whichever team turns in enough gems first will unleash the Webweavers to destroy their enemy's defenses.

Being one of the smallest maps currently available, Tomb of the Spider Queen will draw all your attention towards early skirmishes, which makes Healing Totem Icon Healing Totem an indispensable talent. Using Lightning Shield Icon Lightning Shield to shove your lane (which is preferably either top or middle) will buy you enough time to rotate around and help your allies if they want to turn in some of the Gems that they were able to collect. Mercenary Camps will not come into play until Level 10, since most Heroes will be busy collecting Gems and keeping the enemy from turning in theirs. This fact makes Tomb of the Spider Queen one of the weaker maps for Rehgar, since one of his biggest strengths, which is to quickly clear Mercenary Camps on his own, will not come into play. Remember: if you are behind in experience and find yourself in an uncomfortable spot in your lane, try to let the enemy minions come closer to your own towers. This will allow you to pick up Gems more safely.
