I'm sorry but most of these guides I've read on here really just don't make sense. Are these meant for lower MMR players? Higher MMR you don't see half of the picks.

 
Like I know Leo is new, but your talent selection is completely greedy. How do you NOT take 25% damage reduction while in Wraith Walk? You just leech more life back than they can do to you and just soak up damage if they focus you.
 
Too much emphasis on healing and not overall gameplay. Again seems like nothing but low MMR guides here.

Need to go to Tempo Storm or Heroes Fire if you want to the good stuff.
 
Good luck.

Liked the quick talent build in the first page, could be awesome if you could add that to all the heroes, really nice and really friendly to those who are new to the game and when they switch to the talent tab they could get confused, with something like these helps that a lot

Here are the hotslogs for our writers. I don't think we're in the "low MMR" standards here.

You must be joking right? Icy Veins are pro guides, always have been.

The ones you find on Heroes Fire are usually quite ridiculous.

 

Anyhow, I was already played exactly the same build, it's damn awesome! I've been doing ridiculously well with it.

So this guide just confirms the awesomeness of this build biggrin.png

I would like to stress that we're currently working on releasing the full in-depth Leoric guide as soon as possible. 

 

I do not claim this Build to be the one true way of playing Leoric but I'm glad to see that the majority of the feedback has been positive thus far.

 

Thank you everyone!

It seems you dont understand the pics then, take for example ETC, i like the build in this page more than the others BUT the reason why ETC pro gamers pick a lot of other thing is because of the team composition and whats youre role on a team, usually the player in charge of ETC on those teams go for the utility tank build,

 

Now youre blaming them for low mmr guides?????? are those players low mmr?????? i think they are at least rank 1, and they could be masters if the ranking system in Hots allow it.

 

I see these guide be a lot more friendly and be more useful in the quick match set and even on the hero league and, Unless youre comparing Pro gamers with the rest, these are for an all around, take in mind the difference.

 

Im going to put a comparison with hearthstone, a dude is complaining that Grim Patron is OP beacuse the PRO gamers are using it, you see the key word, PRO, its a way different league than just the rest, even if you are on the rank one the xp they have is, usually, a lot more

You should make a note on the Drain Hope ability that both its damage and heal increase over time with the final tick being the most damaging/healing.

Noticed that Spectral Leech is recommended at level 20, but your graphic has the skill marked as not-recommend with a red X, both in the handy listing at the top as well as under the section for level 20 talents.

I am doing quite well with Leo(and have had incredibly satisfying games) so far. I haven't used anything else than Spectral Leech on 20, though. Maybe I just need more games or I am lucky with the team mates I am getting paired with. The additional heal, stacked with the one from Drain Hope and the Renewal, I find, make you very easy to keep alive for the friendly supporters. There is a small range coming with Leo's basic attack that shouldn't be ignored when mentioning the Leech; nice few more swings at a slowed target.  

 

Also, I think Willing Vessel and Crushing Hope should be given consideration if the friendly composition is able to keep up with additional cc, because this makes for a very threatening range anti-tank possibilities. 

 

All in all, a very friendly guide. Appreciated.

I've also happened to discover that tracer is another pretty hard counter to leoric.

How so? Leoric should never look for low percentile health targets for Drain HopeDrain Hope, and his Skeletal SwingSkeletal Swing is a large enough AoE an aggressive Tracer player probably couldn't escape it's reach. Also, Wraith WalkWraith Walk allows him to make her choose between using blinks to chase him or trying to kill him before he escapes, a task made difficult by Hardened BonesHardened Bones (a very good pickup against a tracer, or, in my opinion, anyone!) Even one of his Heroics, EntombEntomb, gets rid of her ability to BlinkBlink in all but one direction, allowing crowd control to take effect and her to be focus fired (if there is not a more valuable target you have trapped, such as the enemy's main healer.) I will say unless she just used up all of her charges of BlinkBlink and her RecallRecallMarch of the Black KingMarch of the Black King will normally be ineffective because she can get out of it's way so fast, but overall, Leoric shouldn't need to focus Tracer, as his bruiser potential and sustainability all come from assaulting high health heroes (E.T.C., Azmodan, Stitches, etc.)

In honesty, I think that comment was from when Tracer was still super OP after just being released. I can't remember when her nerf patch happened, but yeah. At that time, she was probably just an OP pain in the neck and many players were just having circles run round them because they didn't know how to react to her.

A good appraisal of the current state though!

Please fix level 13 talent descriptions in the talent guide section. Crushing Hope seems to be both recommended and not recommended. Thanks.

Been playing Leoric quite a abit recently and find that the lvl 20 upgrade to MotBK is actually pretty decent and not too difficult to hit at least 1 or 2 heroes with the final swing. Even if you just hit 1 hero with the last swing its still an additional 25% heal on top of the base heal and heal from w. The heal and damage to the enemy team is ridiculous if you manage to hit more more than 1 hero with it. Personally feel that death march should certainly at least be marked as situational.

In higher leagues, players are able to evade the Death MarchDeath March more easily, making it a situational talent limited to lower leagues, which is too niche, even for Situational tier. You also have to take consider the powerlevels of other talents in the same tier, and think about the situation where you would pick Death MarchDeath March over Hardened ShieldHardened Shield or Spectral LeechSpectral Leech.

      Hanamura will return the battleground pool soon and Creative Content Lead Kevin Johnson guides us through all the changes in the latest update.
      Hanamura was pulled from the battleground roster in order to address some gameplay issues back in August. Blizzard tweaked the battleground and shared some details about the rework today.
      Hanamura Rework Highlights
      Payload
      The objective has shifted from two competing payloads to a single contested one. The original version had payloads on the top and bottom of the map that both teams controlled separately, dividing player attention and action across the field of battle. If a payload is left unattended by your team, it will no longer drift backwards, removing forward progress, but will instead remain in its current position, until either escorted again by your team, or picked up by your enemy. Winning the objective no longer deals straight damage to the core without attacking forts and keeps first. The team that was successful in the initial payload push will find that the path for their second attempt will shift, becoming a greater challenge than the first. The path will update a final time upon a second successful push making the third attempt even more difficult. The pattern resets to the first path for the fourth objective. Core
      The core has been opened up for direct attacks from your team. Mercenary Camps
      Turret camps remain unchanged. Healing & Mega Enforcer camps have been replaced with new Sentinel siege camps. Sentinels push down lanes and have a strong cleave attack. The standard vision watchtowers have been replaced with a new set of mercs that provide the same vision functinality, but instead of merely standing uncontested in the area to counter-capture them, you must take out the mercenaries positioned there instead.

      Blizzard started posting Hero teasers on Twitter yesterday and it's more than certain that we'll see a new Hero introduction at Gamescom. Rockyd900 viewed the source code of the first teaser and the alt image said "teaser for Mephisto" before Blizzard removed it.
      After Deckard Cain, it appears that Mephisto will be the next Hero to join the fray. Excited to see a new Diablo Hero? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
