2. Introduction

Tassadar is a ranged support Hero with great offensive potential. He is often seen as a semi assassin since he is both capable of dishing out significant damage and protecting his allies with powerful shields. Tassadar is one of the most versatile Heroes in the game, which makes him fit into many different team compositions.

5. Role in the Current Meta

Tassadar is a true allrounder that fits into nearly every team composition thanks to his great utility. He acts as a semi supporter, which means he is not capable of keeping an entire team alive on his own. However, his Plasma Shield Icon Plasma Shield is an excellent tool to protect individual targets from burst damage, while his Psionic Storm Icon Psionic Storm provides great waveclear and AoE damage in team fights. Tassadar works really well when protecting fragile assassins like Illidan or Jaina, and counters cloaked Heroes like Nova or Zeratul because of his Oracle Icon Oracle ability. Unlike other Heroes, Tassadar can be played efficiently on all of the maps currently available.

Tassadar is very viable in the current meta because he fills the spot of a semi support Hero, which means he is able to contribute more damage to the team than a full support Hero could. This will generally result in a more flexible team composition than if your team had two full support Heroes. His Archon Icon Archon Heroic Ability makes Tassadar a force to be reckoned with and boosts his damage potential even more. Another aspect that makes him a valuable addition to his team is the fact that he is a very stable and safe laner thanks to his Dimensional Shift Icon Dimensional Shift, which allows him to escape ganks and makes sure that he is able to stay in lane to soak experience consistently.
