Unfettered assault is a defensive talent and a guaranteed get out of jail free card as opposed to on the prowl

Not really, movement speed is always strong either defensive and offensive, keeping up the attack speed to get the movement speed is not that hard and you get more benefit

 

The fact that you are using that as an escape mechanism instead of the damage it provides, then pretty much you are wasting time, and 1 sec is A LOT in a moba, a lot of things can happen so its really subpar

 

It reminds me the evasive fire on sylv,

You are incorrect. The cast time of the skill is faster than the 30% you can get from on the prowl as it is available IMMEDIATELY after casting Darkflight, possibly making it the one real escape talent available to Greymane at his most vunerable time (don't say anything about Eyes in the Dark, if you're not taking thick skin you are very confused) . As a matter of fact, the increased range gives the ability the same range as his Darkflight. With 10 stacks of Wizened Duelist your auto attack significantly outperforms Razor Claw in damage, so by this point it has already become more of a positioning tool rather than for damage. I also didn't say that I use it EXCLUSIVELY as an escape mechanism, it is equally good at clawing PAST heroes you're chasing down, thus securing your kills. Relying on anything for inner beast even with Wolfheart is too risky considering his lack of sustain, especially with stacks to protect

 

Oh and by the way, evasive fire on sylv is embarrassing. If you're not paralysis/overwhelming stop playing the character shes not for you

First the reason i said the escape mechanism is because im not you, i dont know how you play it, in that regard im in fault too because i said it reminds me the evasive fire but i didnt said i play it and that it is the way to go bla bla, so dont put the a-hole note "dont play it".

 

Second, is a matter of preference, i like more a passive than to depend on a cooldown, probably the reason why this is suggested instead of a range ability

 

This guys arent that bad in the game to just put this and said it without testing, i think everyone is at least rank 1 and is not that easy to get there

Great guide, thank you.  While this is probably rarely an issue in competitive play, I find that Marked for the Kill is a viable ult in PUGs against very tanky teams when you don't have a strong front line.  I typically use it as the turning point to a kite engagement to melt down some of the beefier warriors en route to a counter-push.

I've had a friend make similar claim. However, that's a pretty narrow use for a Heroic, especially when there are other sources of vulnerability around. Good insight.

Hey guys! This might belong somewhere else, but I'm just wondering if anyone has good tip/tricks for beginning on Greymane or maybe a good gameplay video. I've tried him before and find I have a hard time keeping Inner BeastInner Beast going in team fights because neither team was really going in hard. Also, I'm not to sure how much damage his burst can do, it might be nice to see a really good Greymane player just to get a feel for what he can and can't pull off. Thanks!

Thanks!

I think one of the most important things to remember in the situation you describe is how the reset can actually work. If a team fight is occuring, make sure that you're not pushing in with Worgen form and then finding yourself stranded and getting kited. Play smart and make sure that, when there are those moments of down time in which nobody is pushing in after an initial conflict begins, use your surroundings to reset. Anything that you can grab, whether it might be a minion, structure, enemy hero or whatever, can be a potential reset for you.

Alright, I'll try to be a bit more cautious with how I utilize Worgen from now on. Just as an example, I might be at an alter for ToD and both teams are backing up, but a good bit of poking was going on. I popped my Inner BeastInner Beast, expecting to keep it alive (in human form) with all the poking happening, but both teams are backing up, and I'm too far from a lane to reset off a minion or structure and going in against the enemy would be unwise as my team wouldn't follow. I think the solution here is to wait until a big team fight happens, but still it would be nice to keep it alive during a skirmish to get that extra bit of damage.

Pretty much this. This is the key difference between a decent Greymane and an excellent one. Timing is everything and if you can read a fight properly to know when you can or can't push in, you'll be devastating in team fights. It's fair to say that this is MUCH easier if you are playing in a group where you can communicate over voice, but using pings to your advantage can sometimes be enough of a push to force people in from your team.

The discussion of Cursed Bullet should be updated at level 10 https://www.icy-veins.com/heroes/greymane-talents#level-10

Quote

This is not to say, however, that Cursed Bullet should not be used against any other target; 35% damage is nothing to scoff at for any Hero.

The amount is now 40% not 35. Just a small tweak and it will be fix.

Everything else is all good, thanks for the guide :D

In the description for the cocktail party build it is said that you weaken the enemy with the cocktail and then you use Go for the throat . However the image for the heroic is Cursed Bullet(first page). I don't know if the image is wrong or the description is.

Thanks for pointing this issue out! This must have been missed when updating the Greymane guide 2 days ago. It will be fixed shortly. In the meantime, sorry for the inconvenience.

The box for the inner beast skill says that its cooldown is 999 seconds, which I am pretty sure is incorrect.

Why isn't there an Inner Beast build? something like this for example. Offers much better waveclear and sustained damage. Not pretending I know everything about GM, but was just curious why the Cock-Tail party build was the only one.

I was playing Greymane 2 days ago, trying different builds, but they all felt inferior to the Cocktail build. I asked Oxygen about his opinion and he said pretty much the same. The build you linked is fine, but it will not perform as well as the Cocktail build.

I think the guild needs some updates now that the nerf on Greymane has landed.

Regarding talents choice, I've seen  ViciousnessViciousness becoming the norm for level 1 talent. It even made its way into KSV Rich's guide. Could you put some further insight on this talent because I think we haven't done it enough justice yet :P.

On level 4 I also saw some picking Thick SkinThick Skin (which this guide doesn't recommend) against Melee-heavy comp or 2-tank lineups.

Also, Wizened DuelistWizened Duelist comment has not been updated yet after its rework.

I think Greymane's talent build needs some clean-up now.

With the nerf to the max splash radius of Gilnean CocktailGilnean Cocktail, cocktail build is no longer preferred. Incendiary ElixirIncendiary Elixir takes much longer to complete, and that's the fatal flaw. I think this build should either be completely removed or moved to a secondary position.

In the latest patch Gilnean CocktailGilnean Cocktail got a slight buff in CD, and that sort of pushed ViciousnessViciousness to standard -- which was gaining pace in the meta already even before the patch. Blizzard also combined CDR into Unfettered AssaultUnfettered Assault, and I saw Fan of Tempo Storm pick it in HGC. With the previous nerf to Razor SwipeRazor Swipe this CDR feels even more valuable, but as it competes with On the ProwlOn the Prowl so whether Unfettered AssaultUnfettered Assault will become meta remains to be seen. Speaking of which, it seems pros overwhelmingly prefer On the ProwlOn the Prowl over Running WildRunning Wild, but I guess On the ProwlOn the Prowl requires more skill to use fully? So I dunno whether this should be recommended over Running WildRunning Wild for HL.

      Mastery Rings are a new feature that was added to the game in the latest balance update. They are the successor to legacy Mastery Skins that existed back then. When you reach level 15 and 25 with a certain Hero, you will be able to purchase these augmented rings for 5,000 Gold each.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’re adding a new feature to Heroes of the Storm that will allow you to charge into battle with an extra bit of flair: introducing Mastery Rings!
      Reaching level 15 with a hero you own will unlock the ability to use gold to purchase a Mastery Ring for that hero, which will be displayed in game as an extra adornment of your hero’s regular selection circle. Additionally, when you reach level 25 with that hero you can then purchase an even more distinct Mastery Ring with gold.
      FAQ
      Q: Can I get Mastery Rings for more than one hero?
      A: You can get Mastery Rings for as many heroes as you like, given than you’ve reached at least level 15 with those heroes.
      Q: Do I purchase these rings for each Hero separately?
      A: Yes. These rings signify experience playing individual heroes and let other players know that you know how to play your chosen hero, so Mastery Rings are hero-specific.
      Q: When will Mastery Rings become available?
      A: Mastery Rings are live now!

      Patch Highlights
      General
      After completing the Scarlet Heist Questline, a set of 3 new dailies will become available. To show off your individual Heroes mastery, Blizzard has implemented augmented Hero Rings for any Hero over the levels of 15 (Level 1) and 25 (Level 2) which can be purchased for 5,000 gold each. Hero Changes
      Diablo's base health has been increased and the Mana cost of Apocalypse has been reduced. Artanis' Purifier Beam speed has been increased. Some of Rexxar's talents (Easy Prey, Flare, Hunter-Gatherer) have been nerfed. Varian's Twin Blades have been nerfed and his Taunt has been buffed to incentivize Varian players to try tanking for their teams more often. Ana has been slightly buffed and they removed the awkwardness of the way Vampiric Rounds asked players to constantly target swap after 5 Shrike stacks. Deckard Cain's potions now display their impact location before they land and the radius of Fortitude of the Faithful has increased. Li Li's Hindering Winds and Surging Winds talents swapped positions. Lt. Morales has a new Medi-Drone talent which gives her limited multi-target healing. Malfurion's Entangling Roots & Innervate have been buffed. Whitemane has some new baseline mechanics. Clemency and Inquisition now remove 1 stack of Desperation, Zeal can be activated to increase Spell Power by 25% and reduce Armor by 25 for 5 seconds on a 60 second cooldown. Saintly Greatstaff has a new functionality, and Whitemane has a new talent at level 20 which can be used to grant a target ally a permanent Zeal. Qhira's Finishing Touch has been buffed to help equalize the level 1 talent tier. Junkrat's base health and regeneration have been increased and we have some follow-up changes to even out his talents (see below for details). Li Ming received survivability buffs (Health + regen). Astral Presence was removed and the functionality implemented into Force Armor. Blizzard (Source)
      Heroes of the Storm has just been updated with Hero balance changes and bug fixes! Read on for details.
      General
      The Scarlet Heist: Daily Quests Mobsters are back! After completing the Scarlet Heist quest line, a set of three new daily special event quests will be available. Using a Special Event dialog, you can choose one of those three quests and complete it for a Scarlet Heist Chest reward, once a day, until the event ends on December 3rd, 2019, PST. New Feature: Hero Mastery Rings A lot of you may remember the old 'Mastery Skins' and we are excited to bring back another way for players to show off their mastery of individual Heroes. With today's patch, players will be able to spend 5,000 gold to purchase augmented Hero Rings for any Hero over the levels of 15 (Level 1) and 25 (Level 2). These Mastery Rings are permanent when purchased and will be placed over the top of the normal Hero Ring, becoming visible to all players while in a match. We are extremely excited to know what you think about these and appreciate hearing any feedback you have on them! Heroes
