Heroes of the Storm Zul'jin

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.
