Mephisto Talent Calculator Now Live

Recommended Posts

39209-mephisto-overview.jpg

Mephisto will go live next week and we've added the latest Hero to our talent calculator.

For more details about the latest Diablo Assassin check out our Mephisto Overview.

Dul’Mephistos, the Lord of Hatred, is said to the be most cunning among his brethren. Even while imprisoned in a soulstone, his vile influence corrupted the Zakarum and manipulated them into breaking the seal, giving him free reign to reunite the Prime Evils and enslave humanity. Now he enters the Nexus where all shall kneel before the Lord of Hatred!

This is the build I'll roll when he hits live. AnimosityAnimosity theorically is better in this build, but Static FieldStatic Field is soooo good (albeit more situational).

I second this. Also because I am not good at skillshots to go with a Skull MissileSkull Missile build.

looks really decent. I will try it out and second your opinion on AnimosityAnimosity and Static FieldStatic Field. Both are really good and it's hard to choose. Same goes for me at lvl 1 tho I thinkAngerAnger absolutely is a must pic! I went for a more offensive, spell power-based built. Dunno if it'll work but it looks fun.

The spell power build looks really good on paper (and both Malicious IntentMalicious Intent and Abhorred SkullAbhorred Skull stack, granting a whooping 40% bonus spell), but I find a bit ineffective in pratice because it forces you to use Shade of MephistoShade of Mephisto just for the sake of that bonus, which I don't find the most optimal way.

I think it must be really strong in organized teams, though, specially if you combine that with Ana's Nano BoostNano Boost. This brings a question, though: do spell power bonuses from talents have a cap?

Not exactly an answer, but check this out. You can for sure at least get +70% with Malicious IntentMalicious IntentAbhorred SkullAbhorred Skull and Nano BoostNano Boost. And he gets a team wipe around 16:30.

I personally like this build because it puts more emphasis on Lightning Nova, which is his main source of damage. I just don't like the CDR build that much due to Mephisto's extremely short AA range, which I feel makes it very hard to benefit a lot from AngerAnger. The Lightning Nova build gives him far more potent AOE damage which can give him large shields too. So basically you can teleport in, get lots of damage out, and come out with a big shield. The shield can also help you survive if the enemies try to CC you when you teleport back, and give you time to get out safely. Considering that Furious SparkFurious Spark and Static FieldStatic Field also add to the shield from Static BarrierStatic Barrier, you can potentially have lots of survivability, provided that you learn and play around his Nova radius. NotParadox also likes this build a lot and seemed to do well with it.

I wanna hear what you guys think about the W build, so feel free to comment on this.

I think this build is definitely his strongest one under the right circumstances, as it requires a lot of CC in order for Mephisto to hit the same Hero repeatedly with Lightning Nova (which is pretty easy to dodge). So if your team has stuff like Jaina, Malfurion and/or ETC, this build really shines.

I saw NotParadox video about this build and it sure deals eye-watering damage.

Agreed. But I think it will be very difficult to use to it's full power on most games. If you are playing with a well oiled team, such as competitive, it will probably be the best one.

And what do you guys think about Durance of HateDurance of Hate? In it's current form it sucks, because it is too difficult to hit for a heroic. I believe it will be changed either for launch or on the first patch. Maybe some small adjustment is all it needs, such as a much shorter CD, shorter cast time or for it to work as Skull MissileSkull Missile and shoot from your location after a delay but without a proper "channeling time".

It's windup time needs to be at least halved. In that 1 second time frame, you are so vulnerable to CC, and it's still so telegraphed and hard to hit anyways. If you can hit it, then it's good, but how many times are you going to actually hit it with how easy it is to dodge? Needs some tuning if it's going to be competitive.

The problem is that people haven't learned to use it yet; it should be a follow up to another CC, and not the opener. But I think they should reduce the cast time a bit (0.25 reduction would be enough, I suppose).

      In Storm League, rank is always updated by taking the change in rating and determining the equivalent number of rank points to reward. While the Heroes team is quite happy with how it turned out, the system is causing problems in Bronze 5.
      In Bronze 5, players gain/lose far fewer points per game than players in other leagues and divisions. The underlying problem makes it harder to climb out of Bronze 5 and causes frustration and bad gameplay experience. The team is working on ways to improve it and provided an explanation of why this is happening.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With the launch of Storm League season 1 we have seen a dramatic improvement in rank distribution. One of the primary changes in this release was in how rank is determined. In the past, rank and rating were two entirely different concepts, both of which were updated differently after each game. It was very common for a player's rank and rating to diverge throughout each season which could cause the matchmaking system to struggle to find games.
      With the changes introduced this season, rank is always updated by taking the change in rating and determining the equivalent number of rank points to reward. This leaves very few ways rating and rank can diverge and results in most players being shown a number equivalent to their rating.
      Overall, we are very happy with how the changes are looking; however, we are aware of the inconsistencies players are currently experiencing in Bronze 5. With the new design, players in Bronze 5 will gain/lose far fewer points per game than players in all of the other leagues and divisions. The reason for this is a bit technical but we wanted to take the opportunity to elaborate on what's going on.
      Under the hood, matchmaking rating is simply a number on a bell curve. Every league and division encompasses a range of values on the same curve. For example, if the overall bell curve ranges from -10.0 to 10.0 and the range 1.0 to 1.5 maps to Gold 1, then a player with a rating of 1.25 will have the equivalent rank of Gold 1 & 500/1000 points. These numbers are intentionally made up as the real ones are always subject to change but the idea is the same.
      The reason for the decrease in points awarded in Bronze 5 is that the range of ratings that maps to Bronze 5 is much larger than other divisions. The difference is that this much larger range of ratings still maps to the same number of rank points. As a result, despite being rewarded the same change in matchmaking rating, the rank points awarded may be lower. This is visualized by the graph below:
      We understand that this inconsistency is a negative experience for players so we will be exploring some ways to improve it.
      Thanks for participating in Storm League and providing your feedback!

      Blizzard fixed the Loot Chest display issue and Qhira's Fatal Wounds no longer cause Blood Rage to deal bonus damage to enemies with less than 5 stacks.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’ve just released a Heroes of the Storm patch in order to address a few live bugs. Read on for details.
      Bug Fixes
      Heroes
      Qhira Fatal Wounds no longer causes Blood Rage to deal bonus damage to enemies that have less than 5 stacks. Fatal Wounds no longer causes the activated portion of Blood Rage to deal bonus damage. User Interface
      Ranked: Post-game point breakdown animation now properly counts up or down. Season names now properly display in order on the Profile. Fixed an issue where Blizzard Checkout could fail to load when purchasing Gems. The Loot Chest award animation no longer improperly displays two Loot Chests granted when a Hero Levels and a quest is completed within the same game.

      Heroes of the Storm is currently experiencing an issue with Loot Chests. The display issue causes players to see more Loot Chests than they were supposed to receive, but it's important to note that you're not missing Loot Chests because this is just a purely cosmetic bug that does not affect the total number of acquired Loot Chests.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hey everyone!
      We’ve gotten a lot of reports regarding Loot Chests and I wanted to take a moment to respond here. We are currently aware of a display issue that is causing the Loot Chest popup to show that you were granted more chests than you were supposed to receive. It is important to note - you are not missing a Loot Chest, this is purely a display issue and does not impact the total number of Loot Chests you receive.
      Since we introduced Loot Chests and our new Progression system in Heroes 2.0, leveling up a Hero will grant different types of Loot Chests with increasing rarity depending on your player level. For each level hit, players will earn 1 Common Loot Chest, every 5 levels will then grant a Rare Loot Chest, and every 25 levels will finally unlock an Epic Loot Chest. For every 10 levels you earn for a specific Hero you will earn a Hero Specific Loot Chest for that Hero. With the exception of Special Events, Hero Specific Chests are one of the only ways to get more than 1 Loot Chest per level.
      With the information above, if you are seeing the wrong type of chest awarded, or a Hero Specific Chest not being granted, this would be a different issue than the display issue mentioned above. Please make a post on our Forums and we can investigate these reports further. Before posting please make sure to provide the following information:
      Make sure to check the Loot tab. If you have more than three types of Loot Chests, use the arrows to turn the carousel and confirm the chest is missing. Please include the Account Level, the Hero you leveled, and what level the Hero got. Thank you so much for your help!
