Best duo lane comps?

Hi,

I'm still kind of new to Heroes of the Storm and I would like to know what are the strongest or best hero combinations for duo lanes, or is it impossible to say without knowing the map?
Difficulty does not matter (with the exception of TLV) as both my friend and I are experienced from other MOBAs.

I know that every hero guide has a list of heroes that have synergy with them, but I don't know what are the best synergies in the entire game.

Generally, any tank and support works well as a duo. If you want a proper list though:

  • Sonya + Rehgar
  • Sonya + Lt. Morales
  • Tassadar + Illidan (INSANELY strong, but you gotta be good at them)
  • Muradin + Tyrande
  • Tyrael + Greymane (Tyrael is basically a supporty tank)
  • Li-Ming + Xul

Thanks. Illidank is my main hero and I really enjoy playing him, so we will try the Tassadar+Illidan for those 1337 wombo combo plays.

Also, any good hero trios for Battlefield of Eternity (or possibly for Haunted Mines, should it return to rotation)?

My favorites would have to be:

Greymane + Lt. Morales

Nazeebo + Kael'Thas

Chen + (Anyone who can heal) lol

Seems to me the best heroes on Battlefield are ones that can do lots of damage to the immortals when they're dueling. Heroes like Greymane, Jaina, Li Ming, or Hammer. Map control/mobility is less important on that map since it's small and there are only two lanes. Pushing is similarly less important since taking an immortal pushes plenty.

btw I loathe Battlefield, and it's certainly not one of my best maps, so take my advice with a grain of salt heh.

Trios will depend on how hard you can pressure. A passive trio can still get dominated by a very aggressive duo. Generally, you can dominate lanes with a support (Morales/Brightwing/Tassadar) + tank (Muradin/Diablo) + big pressure hero (Sonya/Illidan).

You want a comp that forces the enemy to fight, like with Muradin's stun, Diablo's knockback, Sonya's grab etc.

Your support needs to be able to either allow you to overextend for kills (Morales) or have serious pressure themselves (Tassadar/Tyrande).

It's also worth noting that you can use a trio that features a big pushing hero like Sylvanas. This isn't the type of trio that forces kills and fights, it instead forces huge tower pressure and requires a lane rotation from the enemy team. It's basically a huge PITA.

I believe this is mentioned in some of your other guides, but Tyrande is very good with any other bruiser with crowd control. You can even go on the fragile side (She works great with The Butcher because of his guaranteed stun), but Arthas, Sonya, and anyone else which can get a stun to help her land Lunar FlareLunar Flare works great. Her vulnerable effect is very powerful as well and helps with securing kills.

Tyrande is perfect for anything that requires a skillshot. If Tyrande lands her stun, you can simply unload everything your partner has (looking at you Li-Ming!).

      Servus, wir sind momentan auf der suche nach 3 Leuten für ein ranked Team.
      Blackknight#2405(Support/Flex), Woddy#22984(Flex).
      Wir haben selber erst diesen Monat wieder angefangen, nach einer längeren Pause. Ihr müsst nicht die besten Spieler sein, nur das Grundverständnis vom Spiel sollte schon da sein.(Wir sind beide noch unranked)
      Kritik sollte gut aufgenommen werden und als besserungs Vorschlag angesehen werden, natürlich nehmen wir Kritik auch gerne entgegen, also wenn ihr meint wir machen irgendwas falsch oder könnten was besser machen sagt es uns ! :)
      Ihr solltet mindestens Lvl 150 sein und vom Alter 16+
      Wir hoffen das wir ein gutes Team zusammen kriegen und so gemeinsam aufsteigen können. Falls ihr Interesse habt addet uns einfach und schreibt uns an. Dann können wir ein Paar Runden machen und schauen wie wir so miteinander auskommen.
      Danke für das lesen und einen schonen Tag noch ;)

      Hey everybody,
      I have a question I tried to find an answer to, but I seem to be the only one not to see the response, because i couldn't find anywhere a thread to this topic. I was wondering why Block is considered a good talent choice. The streamers I watch think it is a viable choice, if there are no fast autoattackers on the enemy team, but to me it feels, there are always better options on lvl 1. I agree Block can be useful against Butcher or Sgt, because their attack speed is slow and they deal a lot of dmg, but I dont see the utility against e.g. Valla, Raynor or Illidan. Plus the charge is not only consumed by the assassins, but can also be consumed by a tank or support thus not delivering any value. For example Arthas, who is considered to have the best Block talent in the game, has its Frost Presence, which is imo way better than Block. Same applies to other tanks.
      So, I hope I described accurately my worries and thanks for your feedback!

      Just throwing this shower thought out there because why not.
      Would it be possible with reasonable amount of resources and time that you have available, to create couple of generic general gameplay/map guides for Heroes of the Storm? There are already a couple for other games, although mostly pretty old ones. Things like general guidelines for tanking, healing and stutter stepping as well as map guides of what heroes are which priority and how the maps play out? You already have some maps covered at the "map specific advice", but as the "new hero guide format" cuts the map specific advice part off, would adding such thing be possible. Not that I would be desperately in need of one, but if I had to guess, a lot of people would be glad to get them available.
