Even though Falling Sword is quite bad, you could still include it in the abilities section :)

Thanks for pointing it out! I will let Kendric know about it.

For a guide that uses absolutelty no trait talents, the title The crusade marches on ! is not realistic... Also, I find fanaticism very useful if Johanna is being chased, basicaly unstopable + speed boost = free. Also you do not recommend "The crusade marches on" because it attracts you to spam skills, although if u pick Reinforce at lvl 1, you will have to use skills often in fights to keep the bonus armor up anyway. Further more, blessed momentum = 0 help for Iron Skin trait cooldown, while "The crusade marches on" helps a lot to keep Iron Skin up which is, for me at least, the main thing that makes Johanna who she is...

Hey,

I asked Kendric to reword the discussion for The Crusade Marches OnThe Crusade Marches On to make the reasoning clearer. Sorry for the inconvenience, and thank you for your patience!

"Subdue exponentially increases the duration of the Slow from Punish. Since the Slow mechanic is based on decay, an increase in the effectiveness of the Slow from 60% to 80% also translates into a longer duration of effective Slow. For example, after 1.5 seconds of a normal Punish, the Slow would be 15% with 0.5 seconds remaining. However, after 1.5 seconds of a Punish with Subdue, the Slow would be 40% with 1.5 seconds remaining. That being said, hitting 4 enemy Heroes at the same is a requirement that is very unlikely to be met, which makes this talent even worse."

Actually the slow will be 80% after 1,5 seconds since it doesn't decay when you've completed the quest or when you hit 2 enemies at once. The slow is quite nice for allowing your teammates to land skilshots.

 

"Blessed Hammer provides modest AoE damage. The problem is that it deals unreliable damage. Blessed Hammer can strike a target 3 times but it can also strike a target only once. If it hits 3 times, its damage is slightly above  Punish, although Punish deals fairly low damage. When compared to  Holy Fury, it usually deals less damage throughout the game."

Blessed Hammer spawns 2 hammers now, so it can potentially hit 6 times. Also Holy Fury deals ~50% of Burning Rage's damage. Blessed Hammer provides something like "burst" damage, which can be more meaningful in some situations.

 

"Fanaticism is too unreliable to be viable choice. Although you will usually be fighting in the midst of the enemy team (since Johanna is a Tank), it can sometimes take several seconds to gain a noticable amount of movement speed with Fanaticism. The duration of  Iron Skin is only 4 seconds, so the gain in movement speed will generally only be for a very short amount of time. Additionally, the movement speed once in a team fight is not really needed, since Johanna is able to stick to targets quite effectively. When chasing Kael'thas, for example, you will only need to move as quickly as he does to keep up with him."

Yet this talent increases Iron Skin's duration to 6 seconds, so it's easier to get value of it, and it could provide additional survivability in some situations.

 

It really feels like this guide was rushed and not thought trough. There is also a mistake about the Laws of Hope (level 1) - it heals 30%, not 20%.

You still haven't put Falling Sword in the "abilities" section, which would be pretty nice, even more so now, when it is in one of the talent builds you highlight

Kendric will be fixing some issues that we have had on out to-do list for quite some time, so hopefully this will be one of them. Sorry for the inconvenience.

It appears that some portions of the discussion around Laws of HopeLaws of Hope weren't changed since Johanna's rework. Even though the talent used to increase her health regeneration by a factor of 3 (around 20 bonus health regen at lvl 20), it now only increases it by a factor of 1.3 (around 3 bonus health regen at lvl 20). As the talent seems to be recommended mainly because of its passive regeneration, you might want to reconsider its value.

Im 100% sure you didnt try roar, it increases her dmg WAY more then the very poor unholy fury, which has 12 base dmg. The multiplicator doesnt help much, it stilll does nearly no dmg. There is a reason roars winrate is higher then unholy fury. It is a very good talent i can just tell you to try it. Also you say that zealos glare is a possible choice, i dont know if you have tried the talent but its flat out bad. i tried to make it work , it didnt. I came here some games ago, and in retrospect find those 2 talent choices, especially the "roar is bad", missleading . the rest i can completely agree with and found it helpful.

Both Roar and Fanaticism are amazing talents. Roar increases your teamfight damage significantly and almost always guarantees its massive 150% bonus damage with condemn. If you took Hold Your Ground, Fanaticism will almost always get value and having an extra 2 seconds is a massive sustain boost if the shield is rarely broken. The ability to defend your team by body blocking or vice versa with Unstoppable through 40% movement speed is incredible. This makes talents like Roar, Eternal Retaliation, and Blessed Momentum even more powerful, because you are able to hit more targets with better positioning. I have to agree with the comment above me and Hotslog stats support my statements

 

Also, could you explain why Radiating Faith is not recommended even though it has the highest winrate consistently across several leagues and months. Even if its popularity is low, it's still a hundred games with this talent per week. For such an easy skill shot, the 2-second stun for the upgrade allows you to use it effectively even on a single target.

On the talent page, under Blessed Hammer it says "You can reduce the cooldown of the active component by hitting enemy Heroes with Basic Abilities.", but the cooldown is reduced by hitting any enemy with basic abilities, not only heroes. May want to mention that since it makes it even stronger in maps where you fight near minions since you can use it multiple times in a short time.

Ouch, I forgot to fix that. Thanks for reminding me!

      Heroes Developer Blizz_DWarner wrote a personal post on Reddit, thanking the community for the amazing time they've had designing the game over the 8 or so years.
      (Source)
      Hi everyone!
      Just wanted to pop in and give a proper personal thank you and goodbye to all the lovelies that have kept the community alive and thriving over the years.
      I’m gonna get mushy for a bit, but I feel I can’t even begin to express how much this game and its community means to me. Anyone who has worked on any artistic or creative endeavor knows that some portion of ‘you’ goes into your work and becomes inextricably written into your soul. It's painful to look back and see those freshly separated fragments of 'you' suspended in time, but that's life eh?
      I started on this project some 8 or so years ago as an assistant technical designer, originally tasked with simple data implementations of the first sets of maps and heroes. Since then, I’ve touched probably every map, dozens of reworks, several core hero designs and of course several thousand bugs. This work was not spawned out of some special DWarner pocket dimension though, it occurred here, in the real (digital) world, with my hundreds of (very talented and handsome) coworkers and most importantly, you.
      Despite what community consensus might state, designers are usually present in forum discussions, watching popular streams (special shoutout to FollowGrubby, CCL, and the crew of Into The Nexus) and of course sharing dank memes. All of your participation and energy helped us trudge through our difficult days (it’s still a job after all), guide our decision making, and just generally help us feel like we’re part of something more than just data fields and debug maps. We couldn’t have done it without you, so thanks, really.
      If you made it this far, raise a glass of whatever and say cheers to all! Cheers to the passionate, cheers to the haters, cheers to the memers, cheers to the contrarians! Cheers to the goof leaguers, wood leaguers and the most sparkling diamonds! Cheers to the quickmatchers, cheers to the Vs AI’rs, cheers to the ppl that play every night, or only twice a year! Cheers to Spazzo and Notbelial and all the lurkers too! Cheers to CCL, the 323r’s, the 6.5r’s! Cheers to the whole damn lot of you ❤️
      Steaming hot regards,
      Blizz_DWarner
      P.S. I'll see you all in Diablo 4 ?

      Blizzard made some changes to the free Hero rotation that resets each Tuesday in the latest patch, changing this week's rotation.
      The free Hero rotation won't reset weekly. Instead, it will reset every 1st, 8th, 15th, and 22nd of every month. As a result, the free Hero rotation posted on June 12 changed with the patch.
      The following Heroes are free to play until July 15, 2022:

      An unrelenting hacking echoed off the walls of the Cathedral and as Prince Aidan made his way through its depths, the sound only grew louder. There were no screams; just that dreadful sound... over and over.

      The latest minor Heroes of the Storm patch added a new Login reward -- the Epic Arcane Chaos Lizard mount. In this post, we preview it in more detail.
      The mount is rewarded by simply logging in to Heroes of the Storm.

      Flavor Text
      Adorned in heavy armor and brimming with the power of the Nexus, the mere sight of an epic chaos lizard and its rider can be enough to turn the tide of battle.

      The mount has 3 tints according to the Nexus Compendium, but only the Arcane one is  available to players. The following variations cannnot be obtained. Images courtesy of the Nexus Compendium.
