Seems like Q-focused build will be the most useful in majority of situations. Wrath of the Angiris is likely going to be picked more often, as other heroic requires maintaining shield for entire duration, to fully benefit from it, which might be difficult against teams with high burst damage or with abilities/talents to deal extra damage to shields.

I think quite the contrary. The ult works as burst protection and damage if it survives. Even has a storm shield attached at level 20.

The Q is quite strange, although it can stun ppl, but in the same time it also make you stand at there for that period when he stun people make you also vulnerable to other.

I think it's because he is supposed to be good at dueling, so it's fine if enemy is alone, but will be a problem if he is facing more than one. It's also good in team fights, as it gives others opportunity to engage.

Agreed. The Q build seems like focused on dueling, but might not be the most picked because your power will be limited in team fights.

If you combine his lingering W, activate his E and R(swords) before striking with Q you basically erase most other players solo. The slow on the W is key for that usually. Who knows how long that'll last though. Damage seems high on'em so far.

      Our twenty-fourth Heroes of the Storm Meta Tier list for the month of January is here!
      Welcome to Icy Veins's most belated Meta Tier List for the January 8 patch. The goal of this list is to try and detail game's current metagame state. The prime goal of such lists is to inform players regarding popular and trending team composition drafting strategies (i.e. the drafting metagame).
      Using the list
       
      Current ranked mode map rotation
       
      Meta picks
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer Anub'arak↑↑ — — — — — — — Diablo (ban)↑               Garrosh (ban)↑                
      High-tier generalists
      Tank Bruiser Fighter Stalker Marksman Mage Support Healer E.T.C. (ban) Artanis↑ Varian(ban) Genji (ban)↓ Raynor (ban) Jaina — Ana Mal'Ganis (ban)↓     Zeratul   Kael'thas   Malfurion               Tyrande↓  
      Mid-tier generalists

      Meta heroes define the metagame. They are very often banned or picked right away, as they generally dictate the pace of most drafts and matches.
      Generalists form the core of your team and are generally picked after Meta picks have been distributed. They tend to work on most maps, and as part of and against most team compositions. Since this group includes most heroes, I elected to split it into three tiers. High-tier rankings are a result of performance (i.e. win rates) and popularity (i.e. pick and ban rates). This means that heroes with high win rates can be set in low tier; the opposite may also be true.
      Situational picks shine on specific maps or as part of specific team compositions.
      Our Meta Tier List has been updated for the January patch!
