Heroes of the Brainstorm

Recommended Posts

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:

Quote

 

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.

To be fair i'd probably drop the healing aspect from Broll to reduce his viability having 3 roles slammed into one character makes him a little too versatile, but i do like the bear form/cat form concept and perhaps for his "Z" ability give him Stampeding Roar from WoW that increases nearby movement speed for a short duration (would allow other talents to be formed into it EX, give armor to allies while Stampeding Roar is active)

That's like saying "Why drink Coca Cola when there is Pepsi?" - it's a thing of personal preference.

pepsi is superior duh

fun fact, coke was made before refridgeration and was meant to be drank hot, while pepsi post fridge thus meant to be served cold, so if you drink pepsi hot and coke cold they actually taste identical.

wow val I came here to just have fun with positiv but that is some amazing work there. You really thought that out well!!!

I want to do one for Garrosh Hellscream. He is by far my favorite wow character and I'd love to see him get some love. I have some basic boring ideas for his basic abilities but I know one heroic one would have to be something to the effect of  "Empowered by Y'shaarj" I'd put surrender but thats not garroshes thing. It would make him turn big and purple ala the raid and augument his other abilities. Then he'd have a different heroic ability that would be non transforming.

To be fair I didn't know you could do that in Heroes Fire. I don't visit that site much.

But yes, it is a personal preference because I love the Icy Veins community. Everyone is respectful and polite (very different from the communities of the likes of the BNet forums).

Thanks! Broll is one my favorite characters in WoW lore, and I like the idea of multiclass Heroes. It has a lot of potential.

After going through some analysis regarding Rexxar's current state in the game, I've come with an idea to make him more relevant. I've always loved playing Hunter in WoW due the class fantasy of taming wild beasts to fight by your side and have access to different pets. This is something I feel lacking in Rexxar, as you can only control Misha, and his other lore-related pets are represented through abilities (Spirit Swoop and Unleash the Boars), meaning you can't control Spirit (his Hawk) or Huffer (his Boar).

With that in mind, I'd love to see some heavy rework as a Multiclass to help define better his roles. Because currently he sits between a Warrior and an Assassin, but doesn't really excel at any. While his first rework greatly aided him with some nice tools and simplification of controlling Misha, I feel that he has potential to do more.

So how would this Multiclass Rexxar work? Pretty much a combination of Kharazim and Varian (in terms of talent diversity), where you pick a key talent at level 1 (much like Kharazim) that will instantly affect Rexxar's stats (like Varian at level 10) and grant him control of one pet for the rest of the match.

At level 1 you pick wich pet you'll be focusing on, reflecting his role:

• Misha for tanking, with the same set she has now (and passively increases Rexxar's health).
• Haratha (Rexxar's wolf companion back when he was still in Draenor; died in the lore) for DPS, with a more offensive kit focused on burst damage and armor reduction (and passively increases Rexxar basic attack damage).
• Spirit for general utility, with a kit tailored for Specialist stuff: waveclear, assaulting structures, slows, buffs, etc. (and passively increases Rexxar's attack speed or something).

Once a pet is picked, it cannot be changed. But his level 20 talent would allow him to summon another one for a limited time (more info below).

Rexxar would have different abilities depending on which pet he has selected, except for Mend Pet, that would remain as his E ability.

Rexxar's Talents would remain roughly the same, but focusing more on improving specific aspects of Rexxar and each Pet in a general manner (as in the talents would have a different effect for the pet depending on which one was picked at level 1).

At some point (maybe level 4, or 7) Rexxar would be given access to an entire talent tier of Traps, that would work much Junkrat's Steel Trap, but in a much more limited use (like having a cast time).

______________

Now, for a more detailed concept about each pet:

MISHA
• She would have the highest health of all pets, but also the lowest damage and attack speed. She would have passive 20 armor. Picking her increases Rexxar's health by 50%.
• Her Q would be Swipe, dealing cleave damage to all nearby opponents and slowing them for 20% for 2 seconds. Cooldown: 8 seconds
• Her W would remain the same (Misha, Charge!).

HARATHA
• He would have the highest attack damage of all pets, and moderate health and attack speed. Picking him increases Rexxar's Basic Attack Damage by 25%.
• His Q would be Bite, dealing a flat amount of damage plus damage over time (bleed) and reducing the target's armor by 10 for 3 seconds. Cooldown: 6 seconds
• His W would be Furious Howl, which increases Rexxar and Haratha's damage and movement speed by 15% for 2.5 seconds. Cooldown: 16 seconds

SPIRIT
• He would have the highest attack speed and movement speed of all pets, but lowest health and moderate damage.
• His Q would remain mainly the same (Spirit Swoop), but would cover more range, and cause Spirit to return to Rexxar after diving, dealing damage when returning.
• His W would be Peck, which deals damage and blinds opponents for 3 seconds.

______________

HEROIC ABILITIES

Rexxar would be unique as he'd have 4 Heroic Abilities.

• The first one would be Unleash the Boars (unchanged).
• The second one would be Bestial Wrath, but would also increase each pet passive effects (Misha gets extra armor, Haratha's now deals bleed damage from Basic Attacks, etc.)
• The third and fourth one would be the two remaining pets, which Rexxar would be able to summon for a limited time to fight alongside him and his current permanent pet. So, for example, you pick Misha at level 1, so at level 10 you can pick either Haratha or Spirit; and at level 20 you can pick the remaining one. Summoning those pets would also grant Rexxar a very small % of their passive bonuses he'd get at level 1 (so picking Haratha at level 10 will give him a very small bonus to basic attacks)

______________

So, what do you guys think? I know it's probably a bit overtuned, but I think it's a start.

HotS needs Fenix.

Each armour would have a 'respawn' timer of hundreds of seconds. Instead of Hearthing you can only replace your armour. Like Dva the armour reset would be his biggest tool. Only instead of the bomb it would be more armour with a role switch.  One a melee warrior, one a ranged assassin, and one a ranged specialist(stealth).

Talents would have three paths. Every choice adds specialization to an armour while neglecting improvement in another. This can have your talents go unused if too specialized in an armour that is not useable at the time or make your less used armour too weak to have an impact other than soaking xp until your other armour is up.

      I've been a Healer main since I started playing this game, and Auriel is one of my favorites. Even though we have Deckard, Ana and other powerful Heroes for Support, I still consider Auriel one of the best Healers in the game given her very strong lane presence, as she doesn't use mana as resource, therefore being able to stay in battle as long she has someone to provide energy through her trait, Bestow Hope. And the fact she can endlessly increase her own energy with Reservoir of Hope, she can potentially be the strongest healer in the game in terms of raw healing output.
      Ever since her launch, I have been testing Auriel's energy generation with a huge batch of heroes. In general, Ranged Assassins are absolutely bonkers for that. So I decided to compile a list with the Top "Hope Bearers" in the game to give her that sweet sweet energy.
      _________________________________________________________________
      This guide will be updated constantly as new Heroes are launched and/or existing Heroes are reworked in a way that affects their DPS.
      This is the build I currently use, by the way.
      Cho'gall: they were mentioned in the guide already, but still... They provide huge lane presence, combined with 8 skills in total makes them a fantastic pair with Auriel to generate energy in double. While they lack the burst of other heroes, they will be constantly pressuring damage due their low cooldowns and combined abilities, which will translate in energy really fast. Cho'gall + Auriel is often a powerful combo even in ranked, although rarely picked. Lunara: a good Lunara will know how to spread her poison among various targets, giving Auriel a healthy sustain in energy, becoming much stronger at later levels. Raynor: even after his nerfs, he still is one of the best Heroes in the game for sustained damage and situational burst, which translates into energy for Auriel really fast.  Fenix: high sustained damage and exceptional poke makes Fenix a really good hope bearer, specially since his high self sustain through his shields allows Auriel to focus her heals on other allies. Valla: a combination of high burst damage and sustained damage, which makes her a fantastic source of energy, regardless of her build. Cassia: much like Valla, she has a bit of everything: burst and sustained damage. If she hits at least two blinded enemies with Fend your energy will skyrocket. Hanzo: long range poke that makes him pretty reliable for getting energy from afar. In specific maps his Scatter Arrow is insane for energy generation. Kael'thas: high AoE burst. Living Bomb is specially powerful since it can easily spread to other targets in chains. Phoenix is specially useful to generate energy as well when defending objectives. Sylvanas: given the right circumstances she can surpass Lunara in energy generation, if she follows the Shadow Dagger build and gets enough stacks. Gul'dan: combines the best of both worlds: spike damage and damage over time. The low cooldown on Fel Flame makes him a giving constant damage in the form of energy. The damage over time from Corruption is decent to generate hope, but only if it hits multiple targets. Chromie: huge damage spikes with her skillshots. A Chromie with good aim for Sand Blast will fill the gauge really fast. Dragon's Breath is absolutely fantastic as well and will often max the gauge in one go if used on a crowd of Heroes + minions/structures. Sgt. Hammer: while in Siege Mode she can generate huge amounts of energy if positioned correctly. Auriel can also stay near to peel for Hammer with Detainment Strike if needed. Alarak: can potentially become the one of the strongest candidates for Bestow Hope if he manages to get over 150 stacks of Sadism. Other than that, he is pretty solid with a point-and-click poke in the form of Lightning Surge (specially if related talents are picked) and high burst with Discord Strike. Mephisto: very high AoE sustained damage. Lightning Nova can fill the energy really fast if it hits at least two heroes. Consume Souls is fantastic because it provides a global source of energy. Kel'Thuzad: potential for overflowing energy thanks to his eye-watering combos. However, this reliance makes hard to keep her trait on him all the time since he is very cooldown reliant. Orphea: in a similar fashion to Kel'Thuzad, she relies a bit too much into landing her combos to provide consistent energy, but it is still very reliable and above average. Zagara: can provide fantastic pressure with her basic attacks and abilities, with a lot of sustained damage that will rapidly fill energy for Auriel. Since she will most of the time have a Roachling or Hunter out, this translates into more damage. Zarya: her synergy with Auriel is fantastic since neither use Mana as resource, meaning less needs to visit the Healing Well. Zarya's piercing splash damage from her basic attacks also results in constant amounts of small energy that holds really well. Jaina: her potential rivals Kael'thas, with a very strong burst potential. However, this is gated by her very high cooldowns and over-reliance on the rest of the team to setup ideal situations for her damage to flow. However, if you notice your Jaina pops Icy Veins and either of her Heroic Abilities during a teamfight, swap your Bestow Hope for her.  Ragnaros: very high burst damage, although he needs to be in range to do so. However, he can be affected by Auriel's trait even while under his Molten Core. Nazeebo: I absolutely love pairing with Nazeebo for the simple fact he can make Zombie Walls every 14 secs, which is great to stun opponents with Detainment Strike. However, both his meta builds can grant a lot of energy. Malthael: provides a very large sustained damage through his trait. Not as good as Lunara's, though. Zul'jin: potentially the best energy generator for Auriel in the entire game due his Twin Cleaves and high damage from basic attacks. However, he is ranked so low because he can only be this fantastic hope bearer once he completes his "You Want Axe?" quest, which is usually late in the game. Qhira: combines damage-over-time with burst, in a similar vein to Gul'dan, being capable of giving consistent damage. The only thing that gates her from being higher is her reliance on Basic Attacks, meaning she won't always give consistent energy; but will do so in long teamfights. Azmodan: massive burst damage once he completes his quest. Ranked so low for similar reasons to Zul'jin. He is also very cooldown dependent (more than Kel'Thuzad), meaning he is unable to contribute with energy at regular basis. However, should you notice he is about to use his globe, put the trait on him. Tassadar: great waveclear and his access to Force Wall can create the walls that Auriel needs to stun her enemies. The Butcher: once he completes the Fresh Meat quest, he deals insane amounts of damage fills up the energy in couple of seconds. However, since a good Butcher will not engage recklessly, he will only generate energy reliably during Team Battles and skirmishes.

      As a Ana enthusiast (she pratically became my main over Auriel, specially after the rework), I absolutely love trying out combos with Nano Boost. In a similar fashion to my Auriel's Best Hope Bearers topic, this list aims to rank my personal experiences with Nano Boost (as well Nano Infusion) and the best Heroes to use it with.
      Heroes that already have some sort of cooldown-reduction talent will often work wonders with Nano Boost, as their effects stack.
      This guide will be updated constantly as new Heroes are launched and/or existing Heroes are reworked in a way that affects their DPS.
      Cho'gall: unsurprisingly, Cho'gall is arguably the best candidate for Nano Boost as it affects both Cho AND Gall, meaning they can use their already low cooldown abilities much faster, and with greater impact. Under the effects of Nano Infusion, Cho'gall is pratically unkillable, specially if Gall has picked Shadow Bolt Volley with the Shadowfury upgrade, resulting in a massive self-sustain. Malthael: given Soul Rip's very low cooldown, Malthael can madly spam it while under the effects of Nano Boost, melting everything. He can become pratically unkillable by using Tormented Souls (with Reaper of Souls) combined with Nano Infusion, with an uptime almost matching Nano Boost itself (even more if he manages to kill Heroes while under it, thus resetting the duration). Alarak: low cooldowns and obscene damage output with high stacks of Sadism makes Alarak a fantastic candidate for Nano Boost, allowing him to deal eye-watering damage. Jaina: can annihilate the entire enemy team with Nano Boost in mere seconds, specially when combined with Icy Veins and Ring of Frost. Chromie: with Nano Boost, Chromie can destroy even high health tanks with her combo combining Temporal Loop and Blessing of the Bronze, allowing her the to achieve the highest cooldown-reduction rate in the entire game. Kael'thas: in a similar fashion to Jaina, he can deal nasty damage with Nano Boost, particularly with Living Bomb. Pyroblast can one-shot low health Heroes while Nano Boosted. Kel'Thuzad: can one-shot most enemies with his combo when Nano Boosted. If the conditions are right, he can use his combo up to two times before Nano Boost ends. Sonya: has a lot of potential under Wrath of the Berserker, which, combined with Nano Boost AND Nano Infusion, can make her more destructive than Malthael. However, Sonya requires to be really close to deal damage consistently, and unfortunately she can be kited easily, which is why she ranked lower than Malthael. Sylvanas: after her rework, Sylvanas became a deadly mid-range Assassin that can deal surprisingly high burst damage with the proper build, making her a fantastic candidate for Nano Boost. Genji: even after the nerfs to this combo a long time ago, it still is a very powerful one, assuming Genji has enough crowd-control by his side to make the fullest of Dragonblade. Greymane: can deal massive damage regardless of his build. Nano Infusion also provides Greymane with very needed self-sustain, which is his greatest weakness. Gul'dan: can spam Fel Flame like crazy under the effects of Nano Boost. If the circumstances are right, he can use Corruption up to three times or more before Nano Boost ends; assuming Bound by Shadow is taken and he hits as many enemies as possible with Fel Flame. Valla: being a hybrid of basic attacker and spell damage dealer, she can deal surprisingly high damage under the effects of Nano Boost regardless of her build, although her Hungering Arrow can be relatively easy to avoid. Cassia: can make a mess with Nano Boost regardless of her build, although she is particularly more effective with the Lightning Fury build with Ball Lightning. Zeratul: absurdly high burst that becomes even more insane under the effects of Nano Boost. Not ranked as high as other Assassins because he requires a LOT of skill to make the fully use of Nano Boost. Li-Ming: innate cooldown resets upon takedowns combined with already low cooldowns makes Li-Ming a beast under the effects of Nano Boost. If the circumstances are right, she can spam her abilities like crazy. However, her skillshots are relatively easy to avoid. Mephisto: innate cooldown reduction on his abilities due to his trait, Lord Of Hatred, makes him a fantastic candidate to Nano Boost. However, much like Li-Ming, he is ranked lower than the other "mages" because he can not guarantee to get many resets in succession. On the other hand, Consume Souls (with Consumed by Hatred) can potentially wipe the entire enemy team. Orphea: quick resets on Shadow Waltz combined with strong sustained damage makes her a good candidate for Nano Boost, however she falls in a similar category as Li-Ming, since her skillshots are relatively easy to avoid; plus she is a mid-range "mage", which makes approaches harder. Qhira: can deal a huge burst damage with Blood Rage and either Heroic Ability, making her a viable candidate for Nano Boost. Azmodan: when fully stacked, Azmodan can decimate the entire enemy team with a Black Pool-infused Globe of Annihilation while under the effects of Nano Boost. He is not ranked so high, however, because his cooldowns are very long, resulting on him not making full potential of the 8 second duration of Nano Boost, even with 150% recharge rate. Kerrigan: in a similar fashion to Greymane, can deal massive damage in seconds, and Nano Infusion makes her even more durable. However, she is ranked lower than him because her combo requires proper setup to work. Thrall: he falls in a similar category as Sonya, as he can deal a lot of damage but can be relatively easy to kite, making his usefulness under Nano Boost not the best one, but still very powerful, specially with the Chain Lightning build. Junkrat: with the Frag Launcher build, Junkrat can deal A LOT of damage when Nano Boosted. He is ranked low, however, because his grenades are easy to avoid. On the other hand, RIP-Tire can really make a mess. Ragnaros: much like Kerrigan and Sonya, he must be really close to deal proper damage, but can deal a lot if given the chance, making him a potential candidate for Nano Boost. He cannot be Nano Boosted while on Molten Core, and will not retain its effects if he gets Nano Boost and then activates Molten Core. Zul'jin: with the Twin Cleave + Guillotine build, he can deal a LOT of damage in quickly succession. However, given the high cooldowns of both abilities, as well the condition of requiring lower health to deal maximum damage with Guillotine, he doesn't work as good under Nano Boost compared to other characters. Maiev: while she has a lot of potential under the effects of Nano Boost because of her Fan of Knives resets, she needs to hit at least two Heroes with it, making the combo more situational. Fenix: while being mostly a basic attacker, he can deal surprisingly high damage with Plasma Cutter, and both his Heroic abilities become even more dangerous with Nano Boost. Murky: can become ridiculously hard to kill with the Slime build + Living the Dream + Fish Tank. Combine that with Nano Infusion, and the murloc can go on a rampage! Not ranked so high because of his low health.

      In the Deckard Cain Meta Tier List made by @Oxygen, @MagikMurlok asked if someone could compile a list of Heroes that have strong self-sustain that can be viable in matches that features no Supports. I decided to help.
      I ended making a list of all non-Healer Heroes that have any form of self-healing. Took me around 6 hours to compile every single nook and cranny (with all the revisions and edits), so here it is! I hope this help. Any feedback is welcome.
      I've also included a suggested build for each character to use in the event that there is no Healer in the team, aimed at maximizing survivability.
      Special thanks to @ExorionAether for the help with talents and Heroes I missed, forgot or did not include originally for other reasons.

      TOP 10 BEST PUBSTOMPERS WITHOUT HEALER AID
      Fenix: as long his Shield doesn't drop completely, he has one of the most powerful lane presences in the game, essentially having two healthbars. And if losing his Shields he can simply retreat and let them replenish again. Just be careful with hard engages, stuns and damage-over-time (as each tick will put Shield Capacitor on cooldown). Malthael: ridiculous sustain that allows him to 1v2 or even 1v3 under the right circumstances. Make sure to hit as many opponents as possible with Basic Attacks to maximize his sustain. Dehaka: incredibly sticky and slippery, with a global presence that allows him to engage and disengage at ease. His trait combined with Adaptation makes him really hard to kill. Blaze: powerful lane presence and one of the best self-sustains in the entire game. Diablo: his recent rework made him absurdly resilient, with a self-sustain that can surpass Blaze's under the right circumstances. Sonya: still one of the strongest solo laners in the game, with reliable self-sustain, great damage overall, and strong engage potential. The Butcher: with a high risk, high reward gameplay style, he can become unkillable, but requires a really strong frontline to keep him well protected, as well at least one backline Hero that can harass enemies at long range. Medivh: with a very versatile kit, he can provide damage, mobility, vision, crowd-control and most importantly, damage immunity and healing. ANY team without a Healer greatly benefits from Medivh. Thrall: very strong on really long matches, as his most powerful quest talents require a lot of farming. At the endgame he deal eye-watering damage while healing for huge chunks of health. Illidan: with his passive healing, he is a no-brainer. He can easily harass the backline and disengage, forcing the enemy team to waste cooldowns and allow the allied team to retaliate. THE TOP 5 BEST SELF-SUSTAIN TEAM COMBINATIONS
      Stitches, Sonya, Kel'Thuzad, Kael'thas, Medivh. Garrosh, Stitches, The Butcher, Kel'Thuzad, Medivh. ETC, Blaze, Fenix, Kel'Thuzad, Medivh. Johanna, Cassia, Raynor, Fenix, Medivh. Johanna, Blaze, Sgt. Hammer, Li-Ming, Medivh.
