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.

I don't think this build should be recommended in the current state.

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.

The thing is, you don't need Inner Beast to be active all the time. You just need it at the crucial moments, like during team fight, reliably; that's exactly what Viciousness offers.

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.

Unfettered Assault is generally picked in a Worgen-centric build, while On the Prowl is prefered in a Human-centric build. Worgen build is basically the going-ham build: talents like Wizened Duelist and Alpha Wolf provide a lot of damage if you can deliver many worgen basic attacks. Human build utilize talents like Quicksilver Bullet and On the Prowl to let you safely deliver human basic attacks.

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.

Pro players play safe most of the time, so naturally they'd prefer Human build over Worgen build. Running Wild is usually not needed unless you need to execute those long-range backliners like Chromie.

I've only played him a few times b ut I was gravitating toward the talents that allow him to very quickly shoot off his bullets, and hitting w allows for that to go very quickly and start dealing more damage.  I've not spent a lot of time yet in worgen form and finding the proper balance to do the most damage, and run out of mana fast but the point is, it seems like focusing on his basic attacks being fast and cooldown decreases was the way to go.  Gilnean cocktail is pretty powerful but at this time [12/7/18] it seems like its not very efficient to pick in pvp since you're supposed to be attacking lanes and not playing the middle and doing a bunch of PVP the first 5-8 levels?


There's still a lot for me to learn like when to be in certain lanes and when its time to go join everybody who's decided to go all in on the mid or top lane (at least this is how it goes in vs ai adept more often than not), but I've yet to find a group that's playing to learn and get better, casually to learn all these things.  in the meantime I'm reading what I can for the characters I find interesting and available to play each week, lots of reddit and youtube videos.  If you read this and have some feedback and suggestions, I'm TangentChaos#1131

for viciousness..you should add that this talent allows you to get cooldown reductions in case you get kited,blinded, stunned or rooted since you can at least cast your abilities thru some of it or afterwards extending the duration and/or reducing the cooldown

      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.
      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,
      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:

      A new spectral skin for the Butcher is now available for purchase in Heroes of the Storm!
      The skin was released with the latest patch and costs 525 Shards or 5,000 Gold.
      Flavor Text
      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.
