1. Heroes Uther Works Well With

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

1.1. Kerrigan

Kerrigan Portrait Kerrigan can brutally initiate fights with her Primal Grasp Icon Primal Grasp + Impaling Blades Icon Impaling Blades combo, pulling foes towards your team and offering you the perfect opportunity to use Hammer of Justice Icon Hammer of Justice as a follow-up. Her weakness of being unable to escape after committing to a fight is more or less completely negated by Divine Shield Icon Divine Shield, and, to a lesser extent, Holy Light Icon Holy Light's instant healing and Cleanse Icon Cleanse. Remain close to her at all times. Since Uther tends to counter Kerrigan pretty well as well, having both on one team takes a counter away from your opponents.

1.2. Illidan

Illidan Portrait Illidan is at his best when he gets to freely deliver his basic attacks against fragile Heroes, but his dive-hungry playstyle makes him hard for most Support Heroes to protect. As with Kerrigan, Divine Shield Icon Divine Shield is an outstanding tool for keeping him alive through the otherwise deadly initial burst that tends to come his way.

1.3. Valla

Valla Portrait Valla and Uther do not have much synergy outside of a Rain of Vengeance Icon Rain of Vengeance and Divine Storm Icon Divine Storm combo, but she tends to be a high priority target that requires instant attention due to her low health pool and notable vulnerability to crowd control. Uther simply deals well with the burst damage that often comes Valla's way.

1.4. The Butcher

The Butcher Portrait The Butcher has by far the highest sustained damage output of any Hero in the game. He is correspondingly fragile due to his exclusively melee range and lack of reliable defensive tools. Such Heroes pair up perfectly with Uther, who provides instant healing, crowd-control, Cleanse Icon Cleanse, and the ever-useful Divine Shield Icon Divine Shield.

2. Heroes Uther Is Countered By

As of the current metagame state, Uther is not particularly vulnerable to any Hero. If anything, his poor waveclear makes him inept at dealing with pushers such as Azmodan, Sylvanas, and Zagara, but Support Heroes are seldom expected to deal with such Heroes in the first place.
