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!).

      I believe that in the future the dev team should start implementing more cc/utility supports. Let me clarify;
      For example, they can put someone like Lion, Shadow Priest,Crystal Maiden or Vengeful Spirit from Dota. Or Leona, Morgana, Braum, Zyra and Tahm Kench. Now don't get me wrong, I enjoy the support designs so far (Auriel plays differently from someone like  Rehgar or Uther), but I think that is a flaw in the support classification. Zarya and Medivh can very well fit these roles.
      Maybe they can apply the Multiclass system on them and have them be a powerful. but squishy nuker (Lion or Lina) or have an aura with mana regen/attack damage or mass teleport. or just have insane CC (Fiddlesticks, Anivia) 
      What do you guys think? I'm looking forward to this discussion :)

      I just had a game where I played the Mage Zu'Jin build, and in the end I had 500/150 hero attacks for the quest, and did 150k dps :D
      The only difference is that I didn't take Guillotine.
      Did anyone else experience this?

      Hey guys, i need an advice about enjoying the game. I started the game in almost plat 5, and now I'm 400 points in gold 3. And I wasn't even insta picking assassins, but I still had people feeding and afking. As you can guess, this really tilted me and kill my mood for playing ranked. I haven't been plat league since last year. Can someone give me any advice?

      Hey all!
      Let's start off with this: We do not do interviews, long forms to fill in etc, you just join and have fun!
      As many others, we also have a Discord for HotS, OW, WoW, SC, Diablo, MineCraft, and we are always looking for more friendly players; Male, Female, Gay, Straight, as long as you are friendly you are more then welcome to join. Just to add, we are all adults ranging from 20 - 40 and we act that way.. Well most of the times.. wait.. sometimes.
      On a nightly basis we usually have about 20-30 active people and at times even more. We got together from a big gaming community that dissolved into thin air and most of us have been friends for over a year.
      We are looking for friendly people, we don't want people who think they are all that and then some. Currently our ban list is at 0 and we hope to keep it that way.
      Feel free to drop by on the Mischievous server: https://discord.gg/saBnVsM
      One last thing, we are only focused on EU players, you can join if you are in the US, but expect little to no people to play with, sorry.
      Regards,
      Abura - Old OpenRaid Mod and Chief in Charge of the Blizzard Everyday Facebook page.
