the ultimate shadow stalker needs to be updated for the healing part, its still the same talent choice in the support build but it still says that you reveal your oppennts location

I am not sure I agree with the evaluation of the skills increasing her basic attack damage.

Simple calculations show that at level 20, Tyrande with seasoned marksmanship, searing arrows, huntress fury, nexus frenzy, trueshot aura/shooting star can deal around 5000 damage to the target under the influence of hunters mark - that is over the period of 4-5 seconds following its application. It is exactly the fact that her basic attack damage is rather low that seasoned marksmanship is especially valuable on her - it gives her an absolute increase in damage which is much higher percentage-wise then for heroes with strong basic attacks. Just send her to a lane with a specialist on it and it is a pure gain for everyone. Her shooting skills are also invaluable when big bosses knock at your forts - unloading all she's got can bring them down in no time.

The Basic Attack build is legit, no doubt about that. However, it requires good game knowledge and great mechanical skill, which is why this build is particularly effective in competitive 5v5 situations. 

 

As for Solo Q and Quick Matches, I would not recommend this build. However, I might re-evaluate the talents in the near future!

The level 20 Ultimate for ShadowStalk needs to be updated. It still says that choosing ShadowStalk at 10 is not recommended.

on scenarios where your teams lacks of damage for X reason, i dont deny that she can be really powerful, ive seen absurdly strong tyrande players going nuts with this build and being feared, but, in my opinion, its really more of taking the big picture, usually in a team strategy she is more valuable being able to bring the utillity she brings than the damage she can do, usually because you have a high damage hero that acts as a carry in your team, (KT, Jaina, etc, etc)

 

Also take in mind that this meta takes brusiers a lot more into consideration , meaning that 2 warrior or even 3 warrior comps are more popular, Zuna from tempostorm talks about this on his Sonya video and talks why she is right now one of the strongest warrior/brusier, so i find a lot more appealing the lvl 1 reduction cd on your trait than damage, mainly because if the enemy team goes for 2 warrior comp tyrande is an obvious threat against them

I don't get how the Focused Attack is not recommended.. I feel like it is pretty good and also Schwimpi picked it in road to blizzcon in their first game vs Team Dignitas and it seemed to work pretty good. :)

You're right in some way. It can be a strong talent, however, the build that pro players like Schwimpi and others use is very hard to execute in solo Q and even mid-tier Team League, since it requires a lot of game knowledge and good positioning.

 

However, I'm definitely going to add a Basic Attack Build for Tyrande in the very near future. :)

The builds are legit enough, but this guide needs a severe update. Many of the things said here are not relevant anymore due to the new ult and changes to her talents.

Hunter's Swiftness, a level 20 talent, is placed in the Not Recommended category with the description:  Hunter's Swiftness can only be taken if you went for icon-tyrande-shadowstalk.png Shadowstalk at Level 10, which we do not recommend.

 

However Shadowstalk has been changed to Recommended recently. Please consider revising.

What would your opinion be on taking talents like Huntress' Fury and Nexus Frenzy to maximize the utility of battle momentum? I have found that minimizing her cooldowns has made me a more effective healer, Nexus Frenzy in particular allows for safe auto attack range (not to mention the obvious benefit of extra attack speed)

In theory, that sounds legit. However, giving up Overflowing Light, which is Tyrande's biggest source of Healing by far, is not possible, especially if you are the single Support. 

 

Furthermore, Empower at Level 1 works really well with other Owl talents to reduce the cooldown of you abilities by hitting multiple enemies with an Owl.

The first ability "Ranger's Mark" only reduces the cooldown by about a quarter, not a half.

Where are you seeing the half reference? I must be missing it in the guide.

I would add Battlefield of Eternity to Tyrandes stronger maps. Her vulnerable skill can make a huge difference in how quickly you can kill the immortal.

Honestly, your talent evaluations for Tyrande are somewhat lacking, since the guide doesn't appear to take into account how the attack speed increases of Huntress' Fury (Level 13) and Nexus Frenzy (Level 20) synergize with the cooldown reduction from Basic Attacks from Lunar Momentum (Level 7).

While I'm no formal tester, my experience indicates that the odd ability timing Huntress' Fury requires (using the Mark while other abilities are on cooldown to get the full benefit) would still not be particularly effective, but Nexus Frenzy is a solid talent because it not only allows you to reduce your cooldowns even more effectively,  the range increase means you can do it from a safer position as well.

More testing needed, obviously, but this does need to be taken into account for the guide, instead of just dismissing those talents on basis of them being "damage-only" talents.

The guide is due a number of updates in our current revamp of the HoTS section. Unfortunately, we have a lot of guides to update and only so many writers, so it does take some time to get it all finished! I can only apologise and ask for you to keep waiting, but know that we are working hard to get it done ASAP!

Tyrande guide is on the top of Kendric's to-do list for guide conversions. If the build proves to be good enough, it will be added. Sorry to keep you waiting!

      The first ever PvP brawl returns to the Nexus. It's time to Escape from Braxis!

      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?

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

      The latest patch is now live with Orphea, visual updates to Dragon Shire, and new Hero bundles!
      Highlights
      Orphea received additional tweaks today in the live version of the patch. The new Hero is available to all BlizzCon attendees and Virtual Ticket holders free of charge. Don't forget to check out our Orphea build guide (will be up soon). Alextrasza’s Life-Binder (R) and Rehgar’s Ancestral Healing (R) abilities are no longer cancelled under any conditions other than enemy abilities that remove the target from play. Stimpacks are now called Boosts and the 360 Day Boost is available at a 33% reduced price for the next two weeks along with new Hero Bundles. Blizzard released a new digital comic about Orphea yesterday. Blizzard (Source)
      Our newest patch, featuring Orphea, is now live! Read on for a detailed breakdown of what’s new in the Nexus. 
      NOTE: Orange text indicates a change between the PTR and Live notes.
      General
      Boost What was once called a Stimpack is now a Boost, and in addition to buffing your own experience and Gold gains at the end of a match, all players will receive 5% bump in experience for each player in their match who had an active Boost. That mean players can receive up to a 45% XP bonus if all 10 players in game have a Boost active! In addition to stacking Boost XP buffs, you’ll now be able to retroactively Boost your Gold and XP gains at the end of a match by applying a Boost from the Score Screen. Design
      Channeled Healing Abilities Alextrasza’s Life-Binder (R) and Rehgar’s Ancestral Healing (R) abilities are no longer cancelled under any conditions other than enemy abilities that remove the target from play (Devouring Maw, Gorge, Cocoon.) Spell Power Modifiers The following abilities and talents have been updated to have any percentage-based spell power modifiers stack additively when calculating damage: (This is the default behavior for all other abilities and talents unless otherwise stated in the tooltip) Zul’jin’s Buzzsaw (R) talent Hanzo’s Dragonstrike (R) center damage effect Gul’dan’s Rampant Hellfire (Q) talent The following abilities have had their tooltips updated to reflect that percentage-based spell power modifiers will stack multiplicatively when calculating damage: Kael’thas’ Phoenix (R) ability Nazeebo’s Vile Infection (Passive) talent Li Li’s Lightning Serpent (W) talent Li-Ming’s Arcane Orbit (W) talent Battlegrounds
      Experience gains from Mercenary Camp captures have been unified. All Mercenary Camps now grant all Experience on capture. Dragon Shire: Dragon Shire has received updated Battleground art (including an updated Dragon Knight) New Hero: Orphea (Assassin)
      Rejecting the dark power her father had begun to consort with, Orphea tried to run away from the Raven Lord's influence. But after witnessing King's Crest fall to his machinations, she was convinced she needed to stand and fight. She now vows to protect the innocent – as a Hero of the Nexus.
      Trait
      Overflowing Chaos (Trait) Hitting an enemy Hero with a Basic Ability grants 1 Chaos. Chaos can stack up to 3 times. While Orphea has Chaos, her Basic Attacks against Heroes consumes all Chaos, dealing 50% increased damage per stack, and healing for 100% of the damage dealt. Basic Abilities
      Shadow Waltz (Q) After 0.5 seconds, deal 150 damage to enemies in a line. Hitting a Hero with Shadow Waltz sets its cooldown to 2 seconds and causes Orphea to dash a short distance upon moving. Chomp (W) After 0.6 seconds, deal 285 damage to nearby enemies in front of Orphea. Dread (E) Release a wave of dread that deals 85 damage to enemies hit. Dread erupts 0.75 seconds after reaching the end of its path, dealing 175 damage and Slowing enemies in the area by 25% for 2 seconds. Heroic Abilities
      Eternal Feast (R) After 1.5 seconds, deal 210 damage in an area. Eternal Feast repeats every 1 second as long as it hits an enemy Hero. Crushing Jaws (R) After 1.25 seconds, pulls enemies in an area towards the center, dealing 275 damage and Stunning them for 0.75 seconds. User Interface
      Additional space for Heroes has been added to the Hero select screen. Battlegrounds with mechanics that add additional (default hotkey: F) buttons (Warhead Junction, Snow Brawl, etc.) have had the appearances of their panels unified. A new “Bundles” page has been added to the Collection tab. Heroes
      Assassin

      Gul'dan
      Talents Level 16 Rampant Hellfire (Q) Damage bonus increased from 8 to 10%
      Orphea
      Stats

      Several new emoji packs, sprays, and portraits have also been added to the game.  Bug Fixes
      General
      Fixed an issue that caused some Shielding and Healing values to track improperly on the score/stats screen. Fixed an issue allowing some summoned units to grant vision of Heroes inside brush if placed at the edge of the brush. Fixed an issue causing new item counts to appear over the wrong category. Art
      Fixed an issue causing some spell effects associated with taunt animations to appear after the animation was canceled. Whitemane: Fixed an issue causing Witch Whitemane’s custom mount animation to cease playing after she died once in a match. User Interface
      Fixed a number of tooltip issues and inaccuracies across the game. Fixed an issue with the Boost button being one pixel lower than the adjacent end-of-match buttons. We gathered the team, pooled resources, and after a lot of squinting at our monitors and a brief search for a magnifying glass, we’ve located the issue and boosted up the boost button to be in line with its neighbors. Thanks for paying such close attention! Heroes, Abilities, and Talents
      Kerrigan: Fixed an issue that disabled Health and Mana regeneration during Chrysalis. Stukov: Fixed an issue preventing Lurking Arm from revealing damaged targets if they were at the edge of its area of effect. Tyrande: Fixed an issue preventing Elune's Chosen from healing allies if damage was dealt to Shielded/Protected targets. Heir of the Raven Court is ready to descend upon the Nexus!
