Thanks for the sugestion of taking Flamethrower over Chain Bomb. I played a couple of games and loved it.

 

The range you gain is HUGE!!! That was under my nose all the time and I didn't even tried. I picked up squishy targets, and sometimes tanks, and oh-my-god... They melted, right there.

 

The range helps you alot to zone them and denying a safe engage or even a safe escape. Like you said "a living piece of artillery".

 

Thank you very much for the tips you provided. That helped me to improve my full combo and a better utilization of D+Living Bomb. I was using the "double tap" not to secury a kill, early game, but to poke/trade and that led me to go back first than my opponent.

The level 20 talents have Arcane Power as the recommended on the icons, whereas Bolt of the Storm is said to be the pick in the explanations.

Guide needs updating since level 16 talent ignite seems to have been removed from game.

Indeed, Srey was busy with finishing Abathur, but the update for Kael'thas and Nazeebo will be up very shortly smile.png

Chain bomb has been nerfed to the ground with the most recent patch. Guide probably needs a bit updating.

I thought so at first, but after testing it really hasn't made a difference. You just can't instantly kill the enemy team if they stand in a minion wave.

hey guys, what do you think of the new gathering power???? is now good to take again or just no??

I'd suggest just sticking with Nether Wind.

Hey guys, 

 

Since Kael'thas has received significant changes with the Dehaka update, the guide has been overhauled as well. 

 

Will continue to work on it over the next few days/weeks.

Nice guide.  The only two things I would like to add from personal experience, I find that pyroblast works better then phoenix in black hearts bay, the lack of choke points hinders how useful phoenix is in my opinion.  Two, I feel you are selling the rebirth talent a little short, I find it incredibly strong on the infernal shrines map, tossing a 14 second phoenix down when you are capturing the shrine kills a ton of minions and forces your opponent to fight in it if they wan't to contest it.

I'm just throwing this out there, but if you play safe and lane against a Samuro, you can complete ConvectionConvection in around 5 minutes and have a permanent power spike because he can't control his images, guaranteeing 2 or three stacks every time he pops them. It's very important not to get banked if you try to do this, however, as he can quickly overwhelm you and make you lose all your stacks.

For the lev 20 living fire talent, I believe there is a bug which has not been fixed for months. Master of flames should spread the living fire (bomb) to other targets after it explodes, but when I tested it out on minions I noticed that it does not spread this ability even though the minions were right next to each other. If this is the case shouldn't we not take this talent?

Living Bomb does not spread TO minions but can spread FROM them. This was a change they did a while ago when they did a minor rework to KT.

As mentioned above, this was basically a minor nerf to stop the ability to maintain LB through a fight by using minions to keep it rolling.

I believe he needs to be updated, he needs a fire bomb build

Kael'thas guide is on our to-do list, and will see an update, though I cannot say when exactly it's going to be. I will make sure to have a Living BombLiving Bomb build (if that's what you meant by "Fire Bomb") looked at. Thanks for the suggestion!

Hey Lisq,

Assuming you are talking about Living BombLiving Bomb, the guide already has a build that revolves around the strength of that ability. It is named the "Verdant Spheres Build" as it incorporates some talents that boost Verdant SpheresVerdant Spheres strength as well. Perhaps when the guide is switched over in format the Verdant Spheres Build could use a name change, as the play style does revolve more around Living Bomb than it does Verdant Spheres. Regardless, the builds are still up-to-date. Thanks for the thoughts!

When guide style is updated..... Also need to add in Braxis and Warhead Junction for his strong/average/weak maps.... Guessing Strong and weak respectively for those two?

      Alan Dabiri announced that he's leaving his current position as Game Director for Heroes of the Storm and he's moving on to another project at Blizzard.
      Alan Dabiri has been Game Director ever since Dustin Browder stepped down in December 2016. He thinks the game is in the right hands right now, as developers continue to deliver interesting new Heroes and events. He's transitioning to a new team within the company. We wish him success in all his future endeavors.
      Here's the message he left on the official forums:
      Blizzard (Source)
      In my 20-plus years at Blizzard, I’ve had the privilege of working on many awesome Blizzard games in roles ranging from software engineer to technical director to game director. Across my many roles and games, my experience working on Heroes of the Storm ranks among the best of my development career. I’ve witnessed Heroes’ evolution from a StarCraft II mod to the amazing game you see today. Heroes’ development has been fueled by the shared excitement of our team and all of you in the community, and the game we’ve built together is the game I play almost every night.
      One of the best things about developing Heroes is the fact that this team is not afraid to try new things while always striving to learn and grow. It’s been part of our DNA from the very beginning, and it’s through years of experimentation that we’ve hit our stride both as a development team, and as a game. This is possible because Heroes has an exceptional development team of both Blizzard veterans and fresh faces who are all highly engaged with the game we’re making, and the players we’re making it for.
      It’s in this spirit of trying new things that I want to let everyone know that a few months ago, I accepted an opportunity to transition off my role as Heroes’ game director to heed Blizzard’s call and begin a new adventure elsewhere within the company. The game director has always been one part of the overall leadership team that drives Heroes forward and it’s been a privilege to work among some of the best game developers at every level on the team all the way up to our production director, Kaéo Milker. Leaving a team and game that I love is incredibly difficult, but seeing the steady strength, creativity, and commitment that Kaéo and the design, engineering, and art leadership teams consistently bring to Heroes has given me more than enough confidence to make this decision. I trust that the game is in the very best hands and their work these past few months has only reinforced my belief.
      They’ve released awesome new heroes like Yrel, Whitemane, Mephisto, and now Mal’Ganis, while building on the themed content drops that let the team do fun things that only Heroes can do. They brought the smackdown (plus my favorite mount, the Luchihuahua!) with Nexomania, finally brought an epic slice of Azeroth into the Nexus with the Alterac Pass Battleground, and joined the Raven Lord’s forces with the Fall of King’s Crest. On top of that, the team has also released awesome reworks like Raynor and Brightwing while adding exciting updates like third ban and Team League improvements. With so many awesome content and feature updates, you can see why I believe that the team has brought us the best year of Heroes of the Storm so far.
      And they’re not done yet. Heroes has one of the most passionate and dedicated development teams I’ve had the pleasure of working with, and they have a ton of exciting new content in development. I can’t wait for you all to see what they have in store for the rest of this year and beyond. You can bet that I’ll be right there enjoying it with you as it’s released, too. I’m sure you’ll agree when I say that Heroes is in a great place and I promise that it’s in the hands of the best possible people to continue driving it forward. Kaéo and the Heroes team are people who play almost every night who also happen to get to work on making the game what it is today. With our continued input and support, they’ll keep doing what they do best by making Heroes of the Storm the most awesome game it can possibly be.
      I just want to sign off by saying thank you to all of you. I’ve had an incredible time working on this game and seeing you bring the battlegrounds to life every day. I’m so grateful for the enthusiasm you’ve brought to Heroes and all the changes you’ve encouraged us to make. I know the team deeply appreciates the feedback you share, so please keep it coming—and as always, I’ll see you in the Nexus!
