Heroes of the Storm Probius

As an avid Auriel main, I must say that Probius is pretty effective under the effects of Bestow Hope. His high burst gives some sweet sweet energy.

No mention of "#pallytimeshotgunbuild2016"?

 

I am appalled.

Couldn't agree more Valhalen! Auriel does compliment Probius well. Can never go wrong with heals, peels, and a clutch Crystal AegisCrystal Aegis.

Probius is pretty cool, but I do feel like he's more PVE. I find it hard to reliably hit Warp Rift so it might just be me but I feel like either the placement time, range or slow needs a small buff. Other wise he's pretty nice xD

Also, there's a typo in the description of counters, "Probius' lack of a reliable may regularly ", I'm assuming reliable escape xP Also I think Valeera is a hard counter to him, got rekt in a game against her recently

Yeah, I see Probius as a PvE oriented character as well. His waveclear is awesome, and his presence with awesome mana regen through Pylons allows him to constant keep pressure on the lane and damage structures reliably. I find him very fun to play as, in this regard.

My thoughts is that Blizzard may buff him soon due his poor performance in team fights, but I think he does well in his niche.

Maybe a new era of hero design is nigh, but most likely he's just bad and will be fixed soon™. I definitely like how he isn't just another hero that can participate in fights, but is rather a hero that should stand aside and hope your team wins the fight (well, to some extent).

Thanks for pointing it out, we'll be fixing it shortly!

I feel like he's countered by way too many heroes, and listing all of them would be useless I believe.

I feel like Protius is the worst character they've released, in terms of PvE and PvP performance. It baffles me that you can make a character so utterly useless on release. I would say he's broken, but this is the way they've built him. I actually paid for him, because the release video made him seem a lot tougher than he is. If I've gained anything from purchasing Probius it's that I've learned to wait to buy characters til I hear how they've performed.

I think that Azmodan fits this category pretty well too, although his recent rework and buffs made him quite powerful in team fights. This might fit Hammer better than Azmodan, however.

But I agree with you, I like how Probius' kit was built; just be chillin' there, clearing some waves, gettin' some XP, while da big boyz do the killin'.

Unless there is an awesome pre-purchase bonus, or you are sure you'll be buying the item (in this case hero) even if it was bad, do not pre-purchase. It's sad when one has to learn the hard way.

And it's fixed. Thanks again for pointing it out. The guide now reads "Probius' lack of a gap-closer may regularly be capitalized on by more agile opponents."

      The latest Hero to be added to the game is Cassia, the Amazon Warmatron from the Diablo universe! She's an aggressive ranged Assassin, who can mitigate a lot of damage by moving.
      Cassia can blind her enemies, increasing their damage taken and much more. Make sure to watch her spotlight.
      After shattering the Worldstone, the young Amazon Cassia had changed. She had seen hatred, terror, and destruction firsthand. To survive the coming darkness, she has now begun her training in the Nexus!
