Heroes of the Storm Anub'arak

Before fix: This warrior sucks, it doesnt work, bla bla bla

 

After fix: He is the best warrior in the world.......

 

Its kinda fun to watch this kind of commentaries in the forums of heroes, but well i knew he was good, excelent cc, excelent ultimates, the only thing that was holding him before the KT patch was the AI bettles and the slow movement of the q

 

And now that hes fixed hes too op for everyone, kinda reminding ETC back in the day when he was considered low tier, then someone got the buildright then he moved to high tier........

 

Im having the feeling hes going to get nerfed just because of the complains but well i hope they dont destroy him like stitches

In the level 20 talents section, Cryptweave is still discussed as if it's a channeled ability, making it seem like the talent updates hasn't been taken into consideration for this particular talent.

Thanks, that should have been fixed.

I feel like this build just sucks. I'm an avid user of IV builds and all seem to be highly competitive.... except this one. I just CANNOT win with this hero and this build. Please help!

How are you playing him? I'll admit I've never touched him besides in try mode, but when I've played with/against good Anub'arak players (not very often, let me tell you), he's meant to crowd control the enemy backline into oblivion (assuming he picked up CocoonCocoon) by burrow charging in to initiate, the immediately following up with ImpaleImpale and CocoonCocoon to get rid of an enemy healer or high DPS hero in the backline. It also is worth noting he isn't a Muradin or E.T.C., but should be played as an off tank (like Dehaka). This also requires a team willing to follow you into battle, as a hesitant one will land you dead right after your crowd control wears off.

This is often a huge problem for Anub players. You need followup damage, or you're just going to die constantly. Anub isn't mean to kill, he's meant to setup kills.

Not to mention that both his offensive Basic Abilites require precision to land. In his current state I'd say he fits well the two Warrior Meta, specially if there are Mages in the opposing team. But sadly Anub can't solo tank at all.

Exactly. He's one of those heroes that is brutally punishing but also incredibly rewarding when you play well.

Can this kind of build be viable? https://www.icy-veins.com/heroes/talent-calculator/anubarak#23.0!3331121


I like the idea of spawning bettles to fight and I wanted to make a build around it, obviously it focus on increasing the number of beetles, their damages (also increasing their healing with Leeching Scarabs) and gain a form of passive sustain in teamfight, as well as the long term AOE damage output with Burning Rage. I think Legion of Beetles at lvl 4 can also help in lanes duels in the early game. What do you think?

Do you really want to know whether the build is viable, or rather whether the build can be competitive?

If it's the former, I'd say it is viable, but I think it could be refined a bit. Maybe you are focusing bit too much on the Scarab HostScarab Host synergy. While I might not be as skilled with Anub'arak as you are (no idea tbh), I would pick Chitinous Plating Icon Chitinous Plating for higher survivability and to be able to spam Harden CarapaceHarden Carapace. I would have also chosen Urticating Spines Icon Urticating Spines as it deals damage as well, but the damage is instantaneous and will quite likely be higher than with Burning Rage Icon Burning Rage.

The build seems weak against heroes with spammable AoE abilities, which significantly limits its use.

Not only that, but Anub'arak's beetles are only useful to block some skillshots and soak Tower ammo. Since the scarab build is no longer viable, specially given how AoE oriented the current meta is, picking any of the scarab-related talents is usually a bit bad. So, as you said, I agree that going for a higher survivability is better (specially since he has a pretty low healthpool for a Warrior).

Maybe the rework in the Probius patch will give him more diversity, although Blizzard already stated they will further emphasize his role as a Anti-Mage character. Given his kit I think it is great to make him even better at harassing Mages.

This build needs an update. Shed Exoskeleton is listed as a "Never Pick" but MasterLeague has it listed in two builds, one of which is the most popular build of all chosen (with a 67% win rate) and the other is somewhat popular with an 86% win rate.

Clearly some of this info is out of date and need review.

I use the Harden Carapace Talents and the area size talent for the tunneling.

When you add them all up it makes for a tough fairly constant shielded and spell armoured tank.

The damage is ok. Not quite Bruiser level but a threat when you add his speed and ability to deal damage on the go.

So the damage adds up because he can constantly maintain it on a target.

He is stamina heavy though. Will need to hearth a few times to regenerate it even if his health bar is easy to maintain.

@Oxygen is sleeping on the W build for so long now. This build pretty much showcases how insanely tanky Anub'arak can be. 

Lv 1: Nerubian Armor

Lv 4: Shed Exoskeleton

Lv 7: Chitinous Plating

Lv 10: Cocoon (obviously)

Lv 13: Urticating Spines

Lv 16: Epicentre

Lv 20: Rewind (again obviously)

This video is a good example for how it works.

Yeah I don't always take 10 and 20. As effective as cocoon is, it's just not as fun as Locust Swarm. Makes me feel all tanky. I wish that one had a lower cooldown though. Hardened Shield is also pretty useful against stun heavy teams that like to combo. Rewind is really just for the extra stuns right, you don't need it for Hardened Carapace. So if your value to the team is best in your ability to block shots then go Hardened Shield. If it is your ability to land stuns, then Rewind. Hardened Shield is also best on Boss heavy maps I think. Against the Mech, would you want more stuns that do nothing or more armour to block some mech attacks? How about against the Punisher? Do you want to tank several punches from it without Hardened Shield? So I think it depends on the map.

Anyone see if Debilitation works on Mech or not?

I'd rather stun-lock enemy heroes to win team fight and take the objective instead. So Rewind every day.

      Here is the official preview of Nexomania II. The event has gone live with the latest patch and will run until September 7.  
      The event revolves around three new Hero skins: Mal'gaucho Mal'Ganis, Gata de Batalla Li Li, and El Bandido Imperius. A new MC Tombstone Announcer has also been added together with a duck mount on steroids, and a rat mount.
      All chests obtained during Nexomania II have a high chance to contain event-themed loot (expect for Hero-specific chests).
      El Jefe Garrosh, El Chamuco Diablo, La Parca Lunara, and La Pantera Sonya (skins from last year's event) received new tints.

      When a swaggering wrestler in a tight pink singlet grabs a hot dog out of your hand en route to deliver a folding chair to the face of an unsuspecting sucker down in the ring—That’s Nexxxx-oooo-mania!
      For our latest wrestling-themed event, we’re taking Heroes of the Storm to the Intermultiversal Nexoweight Championship, where there are no rules and no mercy, just nonstop bicep-busting carnage. Gird your girdles for new Skins, Mounts, the bellowing Announcer MC Tombstone, special Quests, and more. All Loot Chests you obtain during Nexomania II have a higher chance to contain event-themed loot (except for Hero-specific chests). The action starts this week and won’t let up until our next major update!
      NEW SKINS: MEET YOUR CONTENDERS
      We have three new contenders entering the Intermultiversal Nexoweight Championship! These masters of mayhem have trained for years and their skills in the ring are only matched by the style they bring.

      Mal’gaucho Mal’ganis
      Mal’gaucho Mal’ganis is the favorite to win this competition. The Swingin’ Scourge of Stratholme tore a bloody path through his side of the bracket, burying opponents beneath a deluge of demonic blows.

      Gata de Batalla Li Li
      On the other side of the bracket, a mysterious upstart known only as La Gata de Batalla has emerged as a worthy challenger, defeating foes many times her size en route to the championship match.

      El Bandido Imperius
      And then there’s El Bandido Imperius, an outlaw who refuses to play by the rules. He might just make an unscheduled appearance in that final bout. . . .
      NEW ANNOUNCER: MC TOMBSTONE

      The arena is packed, and the Singularity-infused bellows of MC Tombstone himself reverberate through the loudspeaker. The final battle is about to begin. Whose side are you on? NEW: A CHAMPION’S QUEST
      The next time you launch Heroes of the Storm, you’ll be invited to choose a contender in the Intermultiversal Nexoweight Championship. Complete the corresponding Questline to unlock a barrage of themed rewards, but remember—you can only choose sides once!
      NEW MOUNTS, BUNDLES, TINTS, AND MORE!

      Ratón de Batalla
      La Gata de Batalla rides into the fray astride a massive, fearsome rodent with just the cutest widdle whiskers.

      Pumped Up Pato
      What do you say when an inflatable training dummy comes to life and threatens to knock out your friend? "Duck!"
      Bold New Tints
      Check out new Tints for Skins from the first Nexomania, including fresh looks for El Jefe Garrosh, El Chamuco Diablo, La Parca Lunara, and La Pantera Sonya!
      Bundles Galore
      While the fists, knees, and elbows are flying, we’re adding Nexomania II Bundles so you can pick up everything you want at a discounted price, alongside new Sprays, Emojis, and Portraits!
      AAARRREE YOUUUU READDYYY?
      The action starts this week and will continue in pulse-pounding fashion until our next major update. Get in there and fling some swings!
