Zul'Jin is my first day-one purchase; been loving this guy so far! Pretty solid first pass at the guide I'd say, no major complaints with your picks.

a couple talents i'm hoping will be upgraded to at least a "situational" (if not an outright "suggested" status) once you've had some time to play with the guy and finalize this guide:

-headhunter at 4 deserves at least a "situational." though giving up Let the Killing Begin is a big ask, the global enemy vision is completely nuts in certain situations- as a counter to certain heroes and on certain maps, this is a game-winning ability.

-Vicious Assault at 7 is absolutely bonkers, and in many situations allows you to chain Qs infinitely (which deal damage of their own, in addition to the 50% bonus to all your attacks on a target.) recklessness is great, but with many team comps it can be dangerous to rely to heavily on the "fight at low health and live with my ult" plan, and this talent gives you really incredible damage at any health. it also *almost* makes boneslicer worth it at lvl 1 (not quite though, you want axe is a must right now imo). Lastly, it can give the level 13 Eye of Zul'jin speed buff *almost* 100% uptime.

-Forest medicine at 13 is a decent situational defensive talent if you find that the enemy is incapable of diving you. it often allows you to sneak in self healing in the middle of a fight without slowing down your damage and with less loss of positioning. One trick i've done is to pop it while i'm chasing someone down in order to bait them into turning around to break the heal. That said, i'm least convinced on this one, as the other two talents at this level are also very strong.

Hey Voltorocks!

Thanks for the feedback! I'm definitely feeling out how his game play settles over the next few weeks to see what ends up being best in terms of talent selection. And you're absolutely right, I'm already getting the inclination that some talents are definitely going to be headed towards a "situation" if not "recommended pick". Thanks again for the kind words and your thoughts!

Although Taz'dingo is definitely superior to Guillotine, I think the later can work really well if the opposing team has a lot of ranged attackers and a meaty anti-dive tank. The damage is absurd with the right setup.

picking it a lot in quick match and team league (where I primarily Q with friends so I know i can coordinate with my healer) and it's a bunch of fun. love throwing it back over a gate after a close chase and watching it chunk someone from almost half health :D

 

in Hero league, prolly best to stick to Taz'dingo but guillotine can serve a cool role for sure

I think something should be said for the synergy between Vicious Assault and Eye of Zul'jin. I generally take the two whenever I need more kiting and chasing.

Do you feel like you miss the damage from not taking Reck on Level 7?

Best in my opinion is 1s pick for Q. If one hero you hit moves out of the way, the fact that you hit lie 5 (instead of 1 or 2) makes for way for targets. Also allows for rapid merc/lane clearing, making him all-around useful.

Don't you feel the effect of missing all that bonus auto damage later into the game though? I would assume the longer the game, the worse this talent choice gets, no?

About the Taz'Dingo vs Guill. Taz'Dingo has one major flaw, it can't be activated if you are stunned or silenced. And usually you are using it when you are being attacked. If enemy team have a lot of stuns/silences, then, when they start to attack you, you will likely to be stunned/silenced and will die before you will have any chance of activating it, so you are forced to stay back anyway. In such cases, Guill seems like a better idea. It has great range and low cooldown, so you may surprise your enemy while their taking a tower, gathering tribute etc.

I agree. Guillotine is a great surprise attack that can wipe out the entire enemy team if well timed. Taz'dingo, on the other hand, is absolutely fantastic if you get someone to Cleanse or Shield you as soon the CC chain begins (which is why Uther and Tassadar are some of the best characters to pair with Zul'jin).

I usually run a build where my Twin Cleave is my bread and butter. I tend to build by taking Arcanite Axes at lvl 1, for that 25% increase in ability power(when below 50% health), and the cooldown reduction. At the next tier I grab Troll's Blood for a little extra sustain. I then go for Wrong Place Wrong Time, because the damage bonus from landing both axes can be insane, especially with that 25% passive boost from earlier. I then grab Guillotine which not only gets stronger the lower my health is, but it gets a boost from the earlier passive as well. I then grab Forest Medicine for its utility. I like to be able to heal if needed while also positioning for my axes. Swirling death is where this build gets extremely fun. It adds a good amount of utility, and landing both axes at the apex of the curve twice can drop many heroes to half. I use it as utility while fleeing too. When running away, just chuck them in the direction you're running, and anyone closely chasing or a small distance away will get a surprise when their health is suddenly missing, and they're slowed. My final talent is usually Buzzsaw, just for the potential to land a few kills if there are fleeing stragglers. Idk about you guys, but an ability based Zul is really fun, and still outputs good damage. I also have a good amount of range with Twin Cleave being my focus, so chases are usually successful; they both take high damage and are slowed, and it allows me to finish them with some basic attacks if not already dead.

Ya as convenient and safe as guillotine can be the thing with tazdingo berserking is you do more dmg n attack faster less life you have so when your sitting at 1% life and your unkillable you just wreck people, tie that in with killing people buffs your dmg even more and after a kill your just streaking with basic attacks.  Can kill people in a second so you can legit 1v4 in some situations.  Just cant get that with guillotine.  Tie that in with the escape mechanic since you have no evasion skills n its a solid pick.

Yeah, I think  it's pretty widely know that tazdingo is better used offensively than as a simple "stay alive" defensive tool.

 

My thing is that Tazdingo has a lot more counterplay for good opponents, most of those 1v4 situations are games your team was already going to win. I think it's easy to confuse "wow, this ability really makes me feel powerful when it works"  with it being  a really strong ability, when actually it's just stomping players you would have beat anyways.

 

I'm really not even trying to argue for taking guillotine all the time -  I probably go Tazdingo 70% of  the time! Just saying that against a lot of comps, especially if you think your opponents are strong players who have the capacity to counter-play Tazdingo, Guillotine is often the stronger choice towards tipping a tough game in your favor with an improbable snipe or unexpected burst.

I kinda disagree about Boneslicer. It's true that You Want Axe? is generally the best talent to pick, but against heroes like Samuro, TLV, Nova, or simply a ranged-heavy comp Boneslicer will perform better. The main reason is it's harder to complete quest against them. Whenever there are 3 or more ranged heroes I tend to go Boneslicer over YWA, Sam is a definite 'No' to YWA as well, Nova and Raynor having 6.6 range also somewhat nulify the reward. The one exception I know is playing vs Murky, you can complete quest super fast and stack dmg bonus so high whenever he's around, so whenever I see that pesky murloc YWA is an instant pick regardless of comp.

The quest gets easier to complete with level 7's talent RecklessnessRecklessness, and should be fairly completeable even when facing a ranged composition. The quest's reward enables you to be a bit safer when attacking those ranged heroes, which is an additional reason to pick it, rather than a reason not to.

Isn't it worth is to take Arcanite Axes at lvl 1 if we plan to take Guillotine at lvl 10? A 25% damage increase seems pretty big

Yes, I would recommend taking Arcanite AxesArcanite Axes if you plan on taking GuillotineGuillotine, because you will be using your highest-damaging ability when at low health anyway. However, since the guide does not recommend taking GuillotineGuillotine, Arcanite AxesArcanite Axes are Not Recommended as well.

So, unless I'm bad at maths, the level 1 talent BoneslicerBoneslicer comment has an error. It says that it gives a 15% basic attack damage increase when it should give a 10% basic attack damage increase (assuming that the bonus is based off of the current damage bonus and is not a flat increase, in which case it should be a 20% basic attack damage increase).

 

I'm sad that GuillotineGuillotine isn't recommended. I mean, if it were me, I'd think it was situational. If you have an Zarya, Gaz, or Zeratul (or any of the other heroes listed in the abilities section, I guess) use their ability on several enemy heroes, and you're at low health, I imagine that it would almost guarantee victory in a team-fight.

Taz'dingo!Taz'dingo! improves your damage output indirectly, as it allows you to either escape, take the opponent down and survive, or to keep fighting for 4 seconds more. However, it is way safer than and works just as well with shields, and works even better with heals than GuillotineGuillotine. Additionally, GuillotineGuillotine may miss.

Indeed. But I still think that Guillotine should be considered as situational. Under the right conditions, it can wipe out an entire team.

Please update descriptions for Zul'jin.

 

Also, the recent buff to Boneslicer, now increases the damage bonus to 30%, totalling to 80%. I believe this talent is now on par with You Want Axe? talent, since the damage bonus is very noticeable, especially once Vicious Assault talent is taken. In fact, I suggest taking Boneslicer and Vicious Assault to bust tanks rather than the You Want Axe?

Next, Vicious Assault should definitely be recommended. It provides immense synergy with 25% bonus speed talent for Boneslicer and provides the same amount of damage as Recklessness if you hit all the stacks. In addition, Vicious Assault works at all health levels, making it a great option for pokes or commitments.

Lastly, if Vicious Assault and Boneslicer are taken together, Zul'jin gets one of the strongest waveclear for AA assassins in the game. He can blow through a wave as fast as a Valla and shutdown towers even faster. In addition, I've gotten 50% health refunds with the talents for Armani Resilience; whereas, I get only 30% with You Want Axe?. This shows how strong the bonus damage is of Grevious Throw talents, despite the higher damage potential for You Want Axe?

In the characters that synergize with Zul'Jin, you have some broken link snippets that should probably just say the name of the character instead of having a URL.

The discussion on Level 4 Talents says Let the Killing Begin lasts 15 seconds but its tooltip says 12 seconds.

The discussion on Level 16 Talents says Ferocity increases Berserker's bonus by 40% but Ferocity's tooltip says 35%.

      Blackheart seeks revenge against the Commodore in this week's attack/defend battleground! Everyone starts at level 10, no other talents besides that are available. There's a small chance of all players being the same Hero. Play two games to earn a Loot Chest.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Assist a salty revenge-fueled pirate in his other-worldly quest to destroy the docks, or send him to a watery grave with the aid of some spectral cannonballs. This week’s Heroes Brawl is Blackheart’s Revenge, and no matter which side you take, it’s sure to be an explosive match!

      Rules:
      Choose from one of three randomly selected Heroes before entering the Docks. Be quick about it though, you only have 30 seconds to choose! Everyone will begin the round at level 10 and will be asked to choose a Heroic Ability. No other talents will be available. You will either be placed on the Attacking or Defending team and will be responsible for aiding Blackheart in his quest for revenge, or preventing the destruction of the Docks Attackers will be responsible for preventing Defenders from firing Cannons at Blackheart’s ship Defenders will gather Cannonballs and fire them at Blackheart’s ship via Cannons placed around the Battleground After the first round, teams will switch sides and the displayed health on Blackheart’s Ship will be adjusted to show the amount of Cannonballs the defending team must fire to beat their opponent’s score and win the round. The team to fire the most shots at the enemy ship will be victorious, unless both teams fire zero or the maximum of 5 Cannonballs, which will result in ties. Rewards:
      Complete two matches of the Blackheart's Revenge to earn a Loot Chest! Find out more about the new Heroes Brawl game mode on our Heroes Brawl site; and as always, you can find more information on this week’s Brawl by clicking the Brawl Info button at the bottom of the play screen when preparing to queue for the Brawl game mode.

      Alan Dabiri announced that he's leaving his current position as Game Director for Heroes of the Storm and he's moving on to another project at Blizzard.
      Alan Dabiri has been Game Director ever since Dustin Browder stepped down in December 2016. He thinks the game is in the right hands right now, as developers continue to deliver interesting new Heroes and events. He's transitioning to a new team within the company. We wish him success in all his future endeavors.
      Here's the message he left on the official forums:
      Blizzard (Source)
      In my 20-plus years at Blizzard, I’ve had the privilege of working on many awesome Blizzard games in roles ranging from software engineer to technical director to game director. Across my many roles and games, my experience working on Heroes of the Storm ranks among the best of my development career. I’ve witnessed Heroes’ evolution from a StarCraft II mod to the amazing game you see today. Heroes’ development has been fueled by the shared excitement of our team and all of you in the community, and the game we’ve built together is the game I play almost every night.
      One of the best things about developing Heroes is the fact that this team is not afraid to try new things while always striving to learn and grow. It’s been part of our DNA from the very beginning, and it’s through years of experimentation that we’ve hit our stride both as a development team, and as a game. This is possible because Heroes has an exceptional development team of both Blizzard veterans and fresh faces who are all highly engaged with the game we’re making, and the players we’re making it for.
      It’s in this spirit of trying new things that I want to let everyone know that a few months ago, I accepted an opportunity to transition off my role as Heroes’ game director to heed Blizzard’s call and begin a new adventure elsewhere within the company. The game director has always been one part of the overall leadership team that drives Heroes forward and it’s been a privilege to work among some of the best game developers at every level on the team all the way up to our production director, Kaéo Milker. Leaving a team and game that I love is incredibly difficult, but seeing the steady strength, creativity, and commitment that Kaéo and the design, engineering, and art leadership teams consistently bring to Heroes has given me more than enough confidence to make this decision. I trust that the game is in the very best hands and their work these past few months has only reinforced my belief.
      They’ve released awesome new heroes like Yrel, Whitemane, Mephisto, and now Mal’Ganis, while building on the themed content drops that let the team do fun things that only Heroes can do. They brought the smackdown (plus my favorite mount, the Luchihuahua!) with Nexomania, finally brought an epic slice of Azeroth into the Nexus with the Alterac Pass Battleground, and joined the Raven Lord’s forces with the Fall of King’s Crest. On top of that, the team has also released awesome reworks like Raynor and Brightwing while adding exciting updates like third ban and Team League improvements. With so many awesome content and feature updates, you can see why I believe that the team has brought us the best year of Heroes of the Storm so far.
      And they’re not done yet. Heroes has one of the most passionate and dedicated development teams I’ve had the pleasure of working with, and they have a ton of exciting new content in development. I can’t wait for you all to see what they have in store for the rest of this year and beyond. You can bet that I’ll be right there enjoying it with you as it’s released, too. I’m sure you’ll agree when I say that Heroes is in a great place and I promise that it’s in the hands of the best possible people to continue driving it forward. Kaéo and the Heroes team are people who play almost every night who also happen to get to work on making the game what it is today. With our continued input and support, they’ll keep doing what they do best by making Heroes of the Storm the most awesome game it can possibly be.
      I just want to sign off by saying thank you to all of you. I’ve had an incredible time working on this game and seeing you bring the battlegrounds to life every day. I’m so grateful for the enthusiasm you’ve brought to Heroes and all the changes you’ve encouraged us to make. I know the team deeply appreciates the feedback you share, so please keep it coming—and as always, I’ll see you in the Nexus!
