I think that Holy ShockHoly Shock's discussion may be a little misleading.  I think the talent reduces the cool down, but the discussion says "at the cost of putting Holy LightHoly Light on a short Cooldown."  It may just be that this part of Uther's page hasn't been updated yet?

I don't see how it is misleading. It reduces the cooldown if the Holy LightHoly Light was used to deal damage, rather than to heal. This means that you put the ability on a short cooldown, having to wait half of the cooldown time, which is relatively short indeed. This slightly reduces your healpower, as you have to wait from time to time to heal. Is there anything you don't understand, or do you still deem it misleading?

"...at the cost of..." sounds negative.  "...on a short Cooldown..." sounds like there is not a cool down at all.

Not a big deal... The first read had me thinking that if I took that talent I would gain an offensive skill but add a cool down to the base ability (I understand that the base has a cool down).  So, it confused me.  

Either way, in the point maps that we have today, I think the talent Holy ShockHoly Shock is a bit more relevant than it used to be.

Well, it is indeed negative, as it prevents you from healing. I feel like short cooldown says that the cooldown is not long, and I would call 6 seconds a "short cooldown" myself. What would you propose?

I agree. Holy ShockHoly Shock feels much more powerful than it used to simply because of how the meta evolves with all the new maps and heroes.

Benediction has a CD of 0 seconds on here, should be 60.  Otherwise that would be friggen most OP talent in the game for sure.

Thanks! I passed this onto Damien. Once he figures out why this happened, he will fix it.

I like the move speed boost with the stun. It lets Uther cover a team's escape, or just dive into the enemy to stun and run back out. Made even more possible with his heal/defense and his divine shield. It also lets you escape area abilities. I grab the second shield ability for teammates as well so that I can shield more often or save divine shield for myself. And damage is pretty fine for a healer. Other strong healing support don't do any better. I use the many ability on lvl 1. The other ones just drain me too fast even with constant hearthing and wells. With the mana steal ability Uther can sustain his role within team.

And hey, getting a 0 death game with him has to mean something, even if it is QM.

Been a little while for me.

Does surprisingly good damage if you take the Damage Heal. Lets you tank and damage more often. Matching assassins in damage some games while my tanking has gone way up to beat warriors more than half the time.

Much more aggressive finisher that matches or beats others in kills. Though if Lucio can do it, why not Uther. Enemies just can't get away from that range. Divination is still the best Heroic for me. Just use it more often to become a better tank.

Fun times. He may just get some game time over Aba once in a while now.

While being a healer, Uther is considered an off-tank. Thus you should go for a good self-sustain approach. That being said, Silver Touch is actually an incredibly good talent to go with Blessed Champion and Beacon of Light. Not only can you heal your ally with Holy Light, it also heals you 50% more, so doing front line jobs is a good-to-go kind of thing.  I almost forgot to mention, Blessed Champion is what makes his basic attack worthwhile after using Holy Light on an ally or enemy because you can practically heal 100+ with each basic attack to all nearby allied heroes. Plus, Redemption will totally turn enemy players crazy because killing a single Uther is already a tough cookie. 

P.S.: Armor of Faith is also viable.

      The first ever PvP brawl returns to the Nexus. It's time to Escape from Braxis!
      A preset roster will be available for this brawl. If a Hero dies, they can be resurrected by Allies, but when all players die, the mission is failed. Everybody starts at level 10 and has access to their full talents with a few exceptions. Complete 3 matches of Escape from Braxis to receive a Loot Chest. Blizzard (Source)
      Things aren’t looking great, soldier. You’re stranded on Braxis and the UED is overrun. The Omegaswarm has surrounded you on all sides, and your only shot at survival is to press through the onslaught, make it to the extraction point, and get off this forsaken rock. Will you fall victim to the Swarm, or can you work together and Escape from Braxis?
      Rules:
      At the beginning of the Brawl, your team will have the following roster of Heroes to choose from: Warrior: Artanis, Arthas, Johanna, Muradin, Sonya, Tyrael, Varian, Zarya Support: Brightwing, Kharazim, Li Li, Lt. Morales, Lucio, Malfurion, Rehgar, Uther Specialist: Azmodan, Gazlowe, Sgt. Hammer, Nazeebo, Xul Assassin: Cassia, Falstad, Greymane, Gul'dan, Illidan, Jaina, Kael'thas, Kel'Thuzad, Ragnaros, Raynor, Thrall, Valla Player Death: When a Hero dies, they can be resurrected by Allies after a short channel time. If all players die, the mission is failed. Players start at Level 10 and have access to their full talents with a few exceptions (i.e. Bribe) Enemy zerg Heroes will spawn periodically throughout the brawl and will drop new active items exclusive to Escape from Braxis. Push through the onslaught and survive to Escape from Braxis and win the Brawl! Rewards
