We over at DodgeRollGames are constantly doing Heroes of the Storm videos to help examine and keep tabs with the state of the meta and the current strength and weaknesses of many of the characters on Heroes.  We have just started an A-Z series that we think is going to be very unique.  Instead of just the one video on each Hero we are letting each member of DodgeRollGames that knows a hero to not only show off what that hero can do, but also maybe a new build to give you a new play style with that hero.  Come join us, we look forward to working with you guys!

Bunch of changes have arrived in the nexus.  BoneDisaster's long awaited tank reworks have dropped on the PTR.  We did this patch as the information was released, before the PTR dropped.  Discussing the changes coming, and the newest characters entering the Storm!  This is just one of the multiple Heroes video released recently, but as it's our first actual podcast we're excited to bring it to you guys!  Come join us!

Thanks a lot!  We're doing our best! :D    

In our special A-Z series we're not only looking at each hero, but we try to shed some light on different builds for a couple of our favorites.  Anub'arak is one of them with Kolosalus touching up on another build for the big scurry bug!  This built is focused more around keeping yourself alive and causing as much trouble for the enemy team as possible.  I mean, it's Kolo people, nuff said. :D

In our most recent A-Z video, we're taking at look at the new and improved Lich King!  Arthas is back and with a heck of a vengeance!  Purplegragon and BoneDisaster do their best to show off a couple of the builds that work really well with the new Lich King.  If all else fails, he brings a bunch of CC (in the form of slows and roots) to any team.  Come join us!

Instead of doing our normal post concerning the videos we got releasing on the channel thought I would share something a little extra special with you guys!  Our FB page is now set up with an App that links you directed to our videos on youtube!  BoneDisaster's wife set it up and got it going, and man is it cool!  Come check this out!

Today on our A-Z series we've fallen on top of Brightwing, the faeriest dragon in the Nexus.  We've got Kolosalus doing his normal support thing, and showing just how good she can be on the support/utility side of things.  Come join us as we jump around the map and heal the crap outta everyone whether they want it or not!

      I’m in the process of rerolling a tank. My question is: How do I know if I’m doing a good job?

      I currently play a hunter and as a DPS the metrics that I use to judge my performance are fairly simple. If I’m consistently sitting in the top X percentile of DPS for my spec and gear; and sitting in at least the bottom half of the raid for damage taken, I can be relatively sure that I’m doing good DPS and doing the mechanics well too.


       
      However, as a tank this falls apart. Damage taken and even damage mitigated are poor metrics because I need to know if I’m taking and avoiding/mitigating the right damage. For example, I may mitigate 95% of the total damage in a fight, but if the 5% that I don’t mitigate is the 5% that is vital to avoid then I have done a poor job. Damage taken is bad because I may only be sitting at the top of damage taken because I didn’t switch when I needed to, therefore taking unnecessary damage.

      Staying alive is a poor metric too, just because I’ve stayed alive doesn’t mean that I’ve done a good job. What if I’m only alive because a healer needed to make the choice to keep me alive while I was taking excess damage and sacrifice one or more DPS in the process.

      Keeping threat and tank switching etc at the right time is bad as well because there is more to tanking than just mechanics.

      I’ve done some reading and apparently there is or was a ranking system for tanks in wowlogs. But after a long look I can’t find it and all the posts relating to this were over 12 months old, so I assume it’s been removed.

      I’ve also spoken to our MT about this and his response was ‘I don’t know’. As someone who wants to preform at the highest level possible, I find it unacceptable to not be able to judge how I’m preforming relative to my past self (am I improving?) and other people in a similar position.

      So, how do I judge if I’m doing a good job tanking and what areas need to be improved?

      Since 7.1.5 it seems that Cinderstorm and/or Meteor are valid options and often outperform Kindle. 
      How to properly include them in you rotation? Would be great if the guide would highlight the use of them.
      Questions like:
      Cinderstorm > Rop > Combustion > Instant Pyro > and so on  , does this really work to get 5 stacks of pyretic incantation? Cinderstorm on cooldown or only as filler if FB is on CD with HS up? When to use Meteor in Single Target Rotation?

      You heard right. 
      Blizzard just confirmed it on facebook.

      Recorded proof for ya here.

      Out of boredom during long work shifts, I came with this idea to allow players to come up with their own concepts.
      In this thread you'll be free to create your own ideas of Heroes, Maps and skins. Shower thoughts are always nice, and I'd like to see your ideas. Plus, who knows, maybe we can send this to Blizzard and light some bulbs.
      Allow me to start with my idea for a Hero I've been wanting to see for a long time:
      HERO: Broll Bearmantle
      ROLE: Multiclass (Warrior/Assassin/Support)
      ABILITIES:
      • Trait: Shadowmeld (30 sec CD)
      Broll slip into the shadows, entering in stealth for 5 seconds. As soon as activated, Broll becomes invulnerable for 1 second. Players can move while in Shadowmeld, however, at 50% movement speed.
      • Q Skill: Mangle (6 sec CD)
      Broll mangles the target with his fist weapons, dealing increased physical damage.
      • W Skill: Barkskin (15 sec CD)
      Broll's skin becomes as hard as bark, reducing all damage taken by 30%. It can be cast on an ally, however the effect is reduced to 15%. Can be used while stunned or feared.
      • E Skill: Rejuvenation (5 sec CD)
      Broll heals a target ally over time, for 15 sec.
      <This would basically function like Malfurion's Regrowth, but without the initial heal burst; however, the heal over time would be superior to Malfurion's.>
      • Z Mount: Travel Form (0 sec CD)
      Similarly to Rehgar, this is an instantly cast, where Broll shapeshifts into the Stag Form, increasing his movement speed by 20%. Other players can left click Broll and mount on him. Attacking while in this form causes Broll to slow opponents by 20% for 0.5 seconds, and causes him to revert to his normal form.
      __________________________________
      • Heroic Ability 1: Guardian Affinity
      Broll shapeshifts into a Bear permanently for the rest of the match. His health is increased by 50%, however, attack speed is reduced by 20%. <Similar to Varian's Protection Heroic>
      While in this form, his abilities change:
      • Trait: Shadowmeld > Frenzied Regeneration (45 sec)
      In addition to the stealth, also gives Broll a shield, but its CD is increased by 15 sec.
      • Q Skill: Mangle > Thrash (6 sec CD)
      Broll strikes all nearby enemies, dealing physical damage and slowing them for 30% and reducing their attack speed by 10%.
      • W Barkskin > Ironfur (30 sec CD)
      Broll's skin becomes as hard as iron, reducing all damage taken by 50%, however its CD is increased by 15 seconds. If cast on an ally, it will be default Barskin skill.
      • E Skill: Rejuvenation (5 sec CD)
      No changes.
      • Z Mount: Travel Form (0 sec CD)
      No changes.
      • R Skill: Might of Ursoc (30 sec CD)
      Broll invokes the spirit of Ursoc to deal damage and stun the primary opponent for 3 seconds, and nearby opponents are stunned by 1.5 seconds.
      __________________________________
      • Heroic Ability 2: Feral Affinity
      Broll shapeshifts into a Cat permanently for the rest of the match. His movement speed is increased by 15%, and his attack speed by 75%. However, his attack damage is reduced by 20%, and his health by 25%.
      While in this form, his abilities change:
      • Trait: Shadowmeld > Prowl (10 sec)
      It now permanently puts Broll in stealth until he attacks or is attacked. He can now move at normal speed while in stealth, but no longer becomes invulnerable as soon it is activated.
      • Q Skill: Mangle > Rake (6 sec CD)
      Broll rakes the opponent dealing high physical damage and causing a bleed effect that causes the opponent to take damage over 5 seconds. The damage of Rake is doubled while in stealth.
      • W Barkskin
      No changes.
      • E Skill: Rejuvenation (5 sec CD)
      No changes.
      • Z Mount: Travel Form (0 sec CD)
      Broll becomes a cheetah instead of a stag. The movement speed is increased to 30%, but players can longer mount on Broll.
      • R Skill: Tiger Fury (60 sec CD)
      Broll goes on a Frenzy, increasing all damage done by 15% for 8 seconds, and causing Rake to deal its bleed as instant damage.
      __________________________________
      • Heroic Ability 3: Restoration Affinity
      Broll's mana regeneration is increased by 15%, however, his attack damage is reduced by
      While in this form, his abilities change:
      • Trait: Shadowmeld > Renewal (30 sec)
      It also instantly heals Broll by 15% of his maximum health, but its cooldown is increased by 20 seconds.
      • Q Skill: Mangle > Typhoon (8 sec CD)
      Broll strikes the opponent with his fists, dealing small damage knocking them back. It also causes a small burst of wind that pushes all nearby enemies slightly. However, its cooldown is increased by 2 seconds.
      • W Barkskin
      No changes.
      • E Skill: Rejuvenation > Lifebloom (7 sec CD)
      Each healing tick is increased by 0.5% over 15 seconds, and after it expires, it blooms, instantly healing by a large ammount. However, its cooldown is increased by 2 seconds.
      • Z Mount: Travel Form (0 sec CD)
      No changes.
      • R Skill: Wild Growth (60 sec CD)
      Broll heals the entire party instantly for a small ammount, followed by a large ammount over 7 seconds that decays per tick. Global range.

      This is just a brainstorm, like the title suggests. A lot could be polished or changed. I considered concepting the idea of having Rage and Energy for the Bear and Cat forms, respectively, but I think this would overcomplicate things. I am not sure if Shadowmeld should be a trait or a separate skill (assigned to the 1 key).
      Maybe Broll isn't the best pick for it, since he is probably just Guardian lorewise, but I couldn't think of another remarkable Druid.
