If he is a warrior then thats something new to be honest, kinda like it when blizz goes nuts and switch the common warrior role

 

I hope he is a good one, and also i hope more support heroes, that role needs love

Hey Kroshak,

 

I think Rexxar himself is an Assassin and the only reason why they labelled him a Warrior is Misha. Misha is very durable and fights at the front while Rexxar throws his axes from a safe distance. Furthermore, Misha possesses a powerful AoE Stun. Hard crowd control (stuns in particular) is found very commonly on Warriors in general. 

 

I'm super excited to see how Rexxar is going to perform after his release.

Yeah, probably thats why blizz used the term "Warrior" and not "Tank" for those heroes, the same with "support" and not "healer" being used in the mobas, tbh someone (maybe you =P) put like the differences between the heroes and that not all the heroes plays the same, remembering the bad comments about tyrande, that she was a bad support, but in theory she IS a support but not the "support pure healer" type, same with warriors, you got "utility warrior builds" (ETC for example) or the "Warrior Tank Build" that can eat a lot of damage like breakfast in the morning and just be fine (a.k.a Muradin)

The icons for level 16 talents were mistaken. You put the "?" on critical mend instead of the "X" , same for the Swoop talent biggrin.png

Yeah you have to split the Roles.

Supporter get split in healers (Morales, Lili) and Supporters aka "Buffers" like rehgar or tyrande. Same with warrior. There are the tanks who soak the damage and the, how i call "Duellists" like Sonya and Artanis, who got a strong dmg output by lack of deff skills.

 

P.S. For me, Rexxar should be a specalist, not warrior and not assasin.

Hello Kendrick,

I just had a question with one of the level 16 talents. 

The eagle talent in level 16 says that it increases the atk speed by 100% for 3 seconds if it hits a hero. But when i used it on them rexxar's atk speed didn't seem to be that different. Is there any bugs with that talent or am I mistaken in thinking that he doesn't atk faster?

Also is this talent viable? To me feign death seems too good but some of the korean guides says that this lev 16 hawk talent can be a good option.

Hey mortread! 

 

I pick Aspect of the Hawk sometimes myself. The increased attack speed is definitely noticeable. 

However, as a rule of thumb, I'd say that Primal Intimidation is great against Basic Attack heavy teams (featuring Raynor, Illidan, etc.) while Feign Death is awesome against heavy burst (Kael, Nova, etc.). 

 

If you have a significant lead and are far ahead, Aspect of the Hawk can be really awesome but it's definitely the most risky out of those three talents. Hope that helps,

Started using this Rexxar chase build -- it is incredible! Awesome at hunting down squishies. Also, send Misha on their healer, and watch as he goes running.

Yea, Im confused by that one too blainie. Anyway, I think braxis holdout makes the mend pet talents situational. In general, I dont like them either and tend to agree with the analysis here... but the way you play rex on braxis makes them pretty dadburned useful. You can delay those points for that much longer. Going full misha tank build with mend talents can be tough to beat in the solo lane on braxis.

rexxar is in a weird spot where his is not a very desireable pick except for one map where he is a top pick (braxis).  I think the guide is trying to advise you for the wider world of playing rexxar and not just his one little weird role as braxis base camper. In addition, organized teams (or just teams in the higher leagues) will draft a burst assassin who can simply ignore misha and dive rexxar repeatedly, and as such her survivability ends up not mattering much anyways.

Hey everyone! 

With the recent rework from the Valeera patch, I am going to update this guide over the next few days. 

Expect new talent builds and more very shortly!

First, thank you for taking the time to make this guide.  I think it is an excellent resource for starting out with Rexxar.  That said, I would like to share my perspectives as an obsessive Rexxar main.

Counters:

Kael'thas is very vulnerable to being picked off by Misha, and even a player of moderate skill won't allow chain bomb to spread from Misha.  That hasn't been an issue since Misha, Focus! was introduced long ago.  

Misha is a relatively low health tank, with much of her survivabilty tied to a large, frequent heal.  Tycus doesn't really counter her any more than he counters other medium health characters like Thrall or Zarya.

"Going even" isn't exactly a counter, so Artanis is another strange choice.  Additionally Rexxar has far more sustain than Artanis in lane and can frequently stun to prevent Artanis from regaining his shield passive in teamfights.  Finally good Rexxar players can prevent devastating swaps by throwing Misha in front of teammates.

Rexxar struggles with situations in which enemies can avoid or bypass Misha easily.  Good flankers and characters like Chromie are better counters to him.

Talents:

I think you undervalue Hunter Gatherer.  The health regen on Rexxar (Misha does not gain this regen like you mistakenly mention) is nice, but the 10 armor on Misha here in the transition to the mid/late game is huge.  Because much of Misha's survivability is tied to healing rather than raw health, armor has massive value as it essentially increases the potency of healing relative to damage.

Animal Husbandry is also way more situational than you claim.  Aside from the obvious issue with less experienced Rexxar players likely getting minimal value from this talent, it has other drawbacks.  It makes Rexxar and Misha way more vulnerable to tankbusting, and given the popularity of Tycus right now this can be problematic.  And while it improves survivability at the start of teamfights, it makes Mend Pet and other healing in the late game less effective when compared to having Hunter Gatherer in prolonged fights.   Animal Husbandry requires careful consideration of map and team compositions, making it a poor [ ] talent.

Crippling Talons has some value.  3 seconds of 50% slow is brutal and the most powerful non-heroic slow in the game.  I think it's more of a [?] pick than a [X].  It's a better talent for securing picks, as it extends the time your team has to capitalize after a Charge.

Aspect of the Hawk provides the most single-target damage on this tier.  While Dire Beast provides the most immediate damage for burst combos with teammates, after a few seconds Aspect will result in more overall damage.  Naturally there is value in potential AoE damage of the other two options, but Aspect is a great pick for maps that result in lots of skirmishing like Dragon's Shire and Warhead Junction as it makes Rexxar into an excellent duelist.  Now that it doesn't compete with valuable survivability options at 16 it is a lot more pickable.  More of a [?] than a [X].

Big comments like these are exactly the type of feedback we are hoping to hear! It's great that you've taken the time to write this out for us, I'll make sure that it gets reviewed and your suggestions are taken into consideration with new updates where required. 

(Sorry for the late reply!)

Really liking this guide, thanks for writing it, and also the other comments in this thread. I just have one small note, it could be worth mentioning somewhere in the guide that you can press Alt+D to rapidly call Misha back to you, this could help newer users have less trouble bringing misha back :)

The comment on the flare talent at level 1 is outdated, as it talks about when it had a 10 second timer (and 5 second uptime) where it now has a 25 second cooldown and a 20 second uptime.

      It's Midgame Moves week in Heroes and in the second installment, HeroesHearth coach CauthonLuck talks about boss control. Is it worth soloing the boss?
      In the first installment, Dreadnaught covered map pressure and camp timings.

      It’s Midgame Moves week for Heroes of the Storm! It’s time to continue theeducational content series that kicked off 2018 featuring some of the smartest personalities in the scene. Midgame Moves will be focusing on the meaty middle portion of a competitive match! Yesterday we touched on Map Pressure and Mercenary camp timings. Today we will learn about Boss control.
      We’ve all unintentionally thrown a game on a Boss before. Bosses in Heroes of the Storm are some of the most unforgiving points of contention, and often leave disaster in the wake of their attempted capture. However, capturing the Boss doesn’t have to be unnerving, so long as your team is on the same page and you know what information you’re looking for.
      Have a Reason and Follow Through
      “Bosses aren't typically used for building leads, they're used for finishing games or getting meaningful structure advantages that help you finish the game later,” said HeroesHearth Esports’s Coach Rori "CauthonLuck" Bryant-Raible, who spent the entirety of 2017 competing professionally with the Tempo Storm roster. “Have a reason for taking the Boss and try to get your team on the same page with that reason.”
      Taking a Boss in the early game is generally considered an extremely risky move with very little payoff. The Boss will demand a soft defense but won’t get much done unless your teammates are pushing with it. If you’ve already committed multiple members to taking the Boss and there is no going back now—what do you do next? “A big mistake teams make on Sky Temple is taking the Boss in the midgame and letting it push alone on its own. The best utilization of the Boss is when there is a specific plan you can get your team behind: ‘Take this Boss and push with it’, or ‘take this Boss and go kill top Keep while they defend the Boss on bot Keep’, or ‘take this Boss and then go to the other side of Cursed Hollow and take that Boss and push with it while they defend the first one’. If you take a Boss and let it wander on its own, it's a mistake.”
      Baiting a Fight on Boss
      Yes, the Boss does an excellent job of pushing the lane, creating map pressure, and demanding a response. However, it can be an amazing tool for starting a fight as well. “If you're up—say level 16 to 14—that is usually a good time to start a Boss. If the other team tries to contest you, you're fine taking that fight, so long as everyone on your team gets off the Boss and fights. If they don't contest you, take the Boss and push their Keep with a talent tier advantage. You turn your level lead into getting a Keep down, or if you get a pick while they're defending you might just win the game.”
      Communication is key! When you’re not trying to bait a fight, you should make that as clear as possible to your teammates. “If there are times when you know you're just sneaking the Boss and you can't win a fight if they enemy team finds you, you should try and let your team know that like, 'Hey, we're trying to sneak this, if someone scouts us just back up and give it up unless it's almost dead'.”
      Sneaky, Sneaky, Dead.
      Sneaking Bosses can be good when you have Heroes that have high damage output such as Greymane, Sonya, or Jaina. “A common Boss sneak happens on Tomb of the Spider Queen,” said Cauthonluck. “If you can force the enemy team to clear the bottom Web Weaver last, your team can start Boss on top as soon as the Web Weavers die. It's very easy to kill and capture that Boss before the enemy team can rotate top from the bottom Web Weaver.”
      The Hail Mary Play
      When a game looks all but over, sometimes the only option is to pull a Boss and pray for the best. This fight usually determines the outcome of the game, so make sure your lanes are pushed out enough that catapults or a devious backdoor won’t spell your unfortunate demise before you engage. “The point of this desperation play isn't necessarily to get the Boss. If they don't fight you, you get it for free and it's a little bit of an advantage, but the entire point of that move is to get the enemy team to fight you while they're not quite 20. It's a valid strategy.”
      Should I Try and Solo the Boss? ave a Reason and Follow Through
      Short Answer? No.
      Long Answer: “I would almost never recommend soloing a Boss. Maybe with an Illidan and Abathur combo, it could be worth it—but in general, it takes so long that even if you're capable of doing it, it's far too risky and the map control you give up just isn't worth it. Anytime you have someone capable of soloing a Boss it's generally way more effective to just bring one extra DPS with them and kill the Boss much quicker and make yourself less vulnerable to being invaded. You can still have the same benefit, you're doing the Boss without the enemy team knowing and you can still do that while having three of your Heroes visible on the map instead of four. It's something that really shouldn't be attempted.”
      Thieves in the Night
      It is possible, albeit difficult, for Medivh to steal the Boss with Ley Line Seal. So, you’re casually strolling between mid and bot lane with some of your teammates minding your own business when you catch a glimpse of the enemy Varian wailing away on the Boss. Prepare to invade!
      “Tyrael's Holy Ground is your best friend when it comes to stealing a Boss," said Cauthonluck. "Although, Zarya's Expulsion Zone is also very good. Chen's Wandering Keg can achieve kind of the same thing, although it can be difficult to get all their members off the point long enough to capture it. Falstad's Mighty Gust is another tool, but it can be tricky to setup because it requires hitting the Gust into Barrel Roll from a very specific angle where it sweeps the entire enemy team off and leaves you on the point. Any time you do that you're basically resigning yourself to death. I would be very careful with that one.”
      To Defend or Not to Defend
      What is the best way to go about deciding who needs to defend against a pushing Boss? "Most of the time you're going to want to defend with everybody," said Cauthonluck. "However, if the enemy team isn't pushing with their Boss, it's usually best not to defend with all five but to have your highest DPS Heroes defending while your Warriors and Supports are doing useful things on the map such as soaking, defending other lanes, or doing Mercenary camps."
      As always, do your best to be constantly aware of the variables in play. "If you're one or two creep waves away from getting to 16 or 20, then it can be good to have four people defend and one person on your team go to soak that talent tier before you defend hard."
      Armed with this information, hopefully your next attempt at Boss will be a little more thought out. Check back with us tomorrow for more of Midgame Moves Week when Team Dignitas' Vilhelm "POILK" Flennmark explains how to recover from a lost team fight.

      It’s Midgame Moves Week for Heroes of the Storm—and we’re continuing the educational content series that kicked off 2018 featuring some of the smartest personalities in the scene. Midgame Moves will be focusing on the meaty middle portion of a competitive game! Today we will focus on Map Pressure and Mercenary camp timings.
      What is Map Pressure?
      Every game of Heroes of the Storm is a race between two teams. The team winning the race is the team with more map pressure at any given time, demanding a response from their opponents. That team is in the driver’s seat. That is the team with the freedom to make decisions.
      The team that doesn’t have map pressure is that team responding to it, trying to defuse it. That team is on the back foot—defending their structures against minion waves, Impalers, Punishers, Hellbats, Armored Gnolls, Grave Golems, Immortals, Calvary… you get the picture.
      “Map pressure is probably one of the most important aspects of Heroes of the Storm,” said Wade “Dreadnaught” Penfold, former professional player for Tempo Storm and current HGC caster. “When you apply pressure at multiple points of the map at once you are buying yourself more time to rotate and more time to make decisions before your opponent. Map pressure is the tool used to increase the chance of obtaining and maintaining an experience advantage.”
      When Should I Be Doing Camps?
      You should never take any camp without having a reason for doing so. Obviously, it’s less risky to take camps on your side of the map (safe camps) than it is on your opponent’s side (not-safe camps). Sneaking enemy camps almost always ends in tragedy, so it’s in your best interest to refrain unless your team is on the same page.
      Ask yourself this series of questions every time you consider taking a camp:
      Does my team need me elsewhere? Are we going to be able to push with this camp? If I start this camp, am I in danger ob eing invaded by the enemy? Do I need help to do this camp quickly? Which enemy Hero am I anticipating will come to clear this camp? “Before level 10 you should not be doing camps if you do not have a member of the team soaking in every lane,” Dreadnaught adds. “I am not saying that you must have a person in each lane for every waking moment of the laning phase, but it is very important to capture as much experience as possible on the battleground as fast as possible.”
      Know Your Mercenary Camp
      Siege Giants – “Siege Giants have a long-range, high-damage auto attack. Try to focus on keeping them alive by zoning out your opponents. Late game pressure is where the Siege giants are a step above the rest of the mercenaries—but no matter the point of the game, if they are left unchecked, you are going to regret not clearing them.” Found on: Dragon Shire, Cursed Hollow, Garden of Terror, Haunted Mines, Blackheart’s Bay, Sky Temple, and Tomb of the Spider Queen. Sappers – “The Sappers do a large amount of damage and they are one of the more reliable camps to get structural damage from, but they need to reach a certain range from the Towers before they cast their charge. You will need to escort them into Tower range.” Found on Towers of Doom and Haunted Mines. Impalers – “Impalers act much like Siege Giants, in that they auto attack from outside of Tower range, but their overall effectiveness is a notch down. They can be stacked on certain maps like Infernal Shrines, and that can make them more threatening.” Found on Battlefield of Eternity and Infernal Shrines. Hellbats – “Hellbats are tougher in terms of health than the other siege camps, but their limited range makes them less impactful in sieging. Their splash damage helps to clear, and their large health pools allow them to tank Tower shots. Their auto attacks reduce Armor on Heroes, which makes them a pain to clear on your own.” Found on Braxis Holdout and Warhead Junction. Assault Troopers – “Assault troopers can out-range enemy towers and will help push a wave, but this camp struggles to pack the same punch compared to Siege Giants or Sappers.” Found on Volskaya Foundry. Armored Gnolls – “Alterac Pass is brand new and we are still learning how to play the map in the most effective way possible, but [Armored Gnolls] function much like the Hellbats. I think it’s safe to say that the Armored Gnolls should be treated as Hellbats both in effectiveness and how to approach them.” Found on Alterac Pass. Knights – “Knights are the best camp in the game to push with because the Wizard minion provides a Spell Armor aura. This aura helps increase everyone’s ability to push and makes your minion wave difficult to clear. When the Wizard falls, the camp is far less impactful, so try to protect that little guy at all costs.” Found on Dragon Shire, Cursed Hollow, Garden of Terror, Blackheart’s Bay, Sky Temple, and Tomb of the Spider Queen. Fallen Shaman – “The Fallen Shaman spawns dogs that will fight on his behalf and when they die he will bring in a new set of puppers. The Shaman will stay out of range of Towers and Forts the entire time, so unless you respond to him and kill him, you are relying on the minions to clear him and his dogs. This takes a very long time to make happen and because of this, the camp is the best at split pushing.” Found on Battlefield of Eternity and Infernal Shrines. Goliaths and Raven – “Goliaths can’t out-range the Towers which makes the camp not ideal for sieging. It does provide a solid amount of threat to heroes because the Raven has a long-range seeker missile that can do a decent amount of damage. You can out-range the ability and avoid the damage, but it will force you away from the camp a significant distance. The Raven also has AoE damage to try to help the Goliaths push and the Goliaths are pretty tanky.” Found on Braxis Holdout and Warhead Junction. Why Wait to Capture the Camp?
      So, you’ve done the camp and it’s time to stand on the circle to capture it and get those Mercs pushing. WAIT! You could get so much more out of this if you put a little thought into what you’re doing!
      “You should be stalling the cap whenever you know that there is going to be an objective spawning on the map and that there is no way that anyone on the opponent’s team can contest you," Dreadnaught said. "There are hundreds of different situations where stalling will help your team out, but in all of these cases you are stalling to ensure that you are capping your camp with a purpose and timing it in order to give your team the greatest advantage possible.”
      Stalling the cap of a camp is small change you can make to your game that can have a potentially major impact. “A good example of this would be on the first Shrine Phase of Sky temple," Dreadnaught said. "Your opponents are likely going to start their Knight camp at some point during this time frame and if they do, you may consider stalling the cap of yours to ensure that the Knights meet up under the cover of your top Fort Towers. This gives you the easiest defense position to clear and will allow your Knights to push without interruption while your team fights on the Temple.”
      Common Camp Capture Timings
      Battlefield of Eternity:
      “Capture Impalers before first Immortal.” “Capture Shaman camp as the Immortal spawns.” Braxis Holdout:
      “Either Camp during the Beacon Phase to create pressure and help enable the control.” Cursed Hollow:
      “Capture Giants as the first tribute spawns.” “Capture Knights in between the first and second tribute spawns.” Dragonshire:
      “Roughly 45 seconds after a Dragonknight dies, capture any camp available. This better sets up the map for the next shrine phase.” Garden of Terror:
      “Whenever you have one of the two Garden Terrors cleared, pick up a close camp to demand a response and then get free seeds from the opposite terror. “ “Capture Giants as you are channeling to pilot your own Garden Terror and then pressure mid and bottom with the terror.” Haunted Mines:
      “Capture Sappers and Giants during mine phase to get free damage while everyone is getting skulls.” “Capture Giants when the Grave Golem is sieging to help defend and get counter pressure.” Infernal Shrines:
      “Capture Impalers during the laning phase between rotations of middle and bot lane.” “Capture bottom Impalers once you have control over mid with first Impaler set.” “Capture the Shaman Camp anytime the Shrine spawns middle or bottom, especially bottom.” Sky Temple:
      “Capture Giants and Knights before first Temple phase.” Tomb of the Spider Queen:
      “Capture Knights before or during first turn-in phase.” Towers of Doom:
      “Capture Sappers as soon as they spawn and as often as you can on bottom half of the map.” Volskaya Foundry:
      “Capture bottom Turret Camp as soon as it spawns and as often as possible” “Capture the Support Camp as soon as the Turret camp is picked up, try to take this camp as frequently as possible.” With a little practice and patience, split-pushing and pressuring your opponents can become second nature. Be sure to check back in with us tomorrow for more of Midgame Moves week when we cover everything you need to know about Boss control with HeroesHearth Esports’s Coach Rori "CauthonLuck" Bryant-Raible.
