1. Heroes Thrall Works Well With

In this section, we will look at the heroes that work particularly well with Thrall.

1.1. Kharazim

Kharazim Portrait Kharazim's great mobility allows him to cast Divine Palm Icon Divine Palm in time if Thrall is on the brink of death which can decide a team fight to go in your favour. Besides, Kharazim possesses a variety of useful talents, such as Protective Shield Icon Protective Shield or Quicksilver Icon Quicksilver, which can improve Thrall's overall combat performance tremendously.

1.2. Uther

Uther Portrait Uther provides great support to Thrall at all stages of the game. In the early game, Holy Light Icon Holy Light, Protective Shield Icon Protective Shield, and Cleanse Icon Cleanse are great tools to keep Thrall sustained and mobile, while Divine Shield Icon Divine Shield allows him to wreak havoc within the enemy ranks. Since Uther is usually found at the frontline as well, he should always be in range to assist Thrall during team fights and skirmishes.

1.3. Tassadar

Tassadar Portrait Tassadar's Plasma Shield Icon Plasma Shield causes Thrall to become a lot less susceptible to enemy burst damage, allowing him to accumulate stacks of Frostwolf Resilience Icon Frostwolf Resilience a lot more efficiently. Since good vision is crucial for Thrall in order to land a good Sundering Icon Sundering on your opponents, Tassadar's Oracle Icon Oracle trait can become very helpful before actually engaging the enemy team.

1.4. Tyrande

Tyrande Portrait Tyrande's Lunar Flare Icon Lunar Flare works very well as a follow up to Thrall's Feral Spirit Icon Feral Spirit and vice versa. Furthermore, she possesses some very strong supportive talents, such as Protective Shield Icon Protective Shield and Overflowing Light Icon Overflowing Light, that will help her to keep you alive.

2. Heroes Thrall Is Countered By

In this section, we will look at the heroes that counter Thrall particularly well.

2.1. Li Li

Li Li Portrait By using Blinding Wind Icon Blinding Wind at the right moment, Li Li can completely shut down Thrall's most important source of damage, which is Windfury Icon Windfury.

2.1.1. How To Play Against Li Li

Paying close attention to when Li Li uses her Blinding Wind is crucial. Try to avoid using Windfury when you notice that Thrall got blinded by her. At the same time, Sundering Icon Sundering should be used while she is channeling Jug of 1,000 Cups Icon Jug of 1,000 Cups in order to stop her from healing nearby allies.

2.2. Johanna

Johanna Portrait Johanna's Shield Glare Icon Shield Glare is a strong counter to Thrall's Basic Attacks, while Condemn Icon Condemn and Blessed Shield Icon Blessed Shield pose a serious threat to Thrall's mobility during team fights.

2.2.1. How To Play Against Johanna

Even though Thrall is one of the best duelists in the game, you should never ever chase Johanna if she is not on the brink of death. Also, you should pay close attention to her Iron Skin Icon Iron Skin trait. If it is still active, do not cast Feral Spirit Icon Feral Spirit or Sundering Icon Sundering at her.

2.3. Muradin

Muradin Portrait Muradin possesses strong crowd control abilities like Storm Bolt Icon Storm Bolt and Thunder Clap Icon Thunder Clap to prevent Thrall from unleashing his full damage potential.

2.3.1. How To Play Against Muradin

Avoid direct confrontation against Muradin, especially if he took the Reverberation Icon Reverberation talent at Level 1 which causes his Thunder Clap to slow your attack speed by 50% for 3 seconds. When casting Sundering Icon Sundering you should keep in mind that it has a short channeling time of roughly 1 second. During that short time frame you should pay attention not to get interrupted by Muradin's Storm Bolt or Basic Attacks while he is in his Avatar Icon Avatar form, as otherwise Sundering will be put on a 10-second cooldown.
