Would be nice if there was one ?

The thread should have been hidden until we released the guide, which we did like 2 hours ago ?

I played a couple games vs the AI and he did a good amount of damage.  I went all Q build and I wasn't that impressed with the build though.  First off, the Q can be tricky to land as you can do it at someone directly in front of you and miss (he sort of steps thru them before stabbing).  Second, the quest aspect on Q is hard with a small hitbox on it.  I still did double the AI's dmg (our assassins) and won quite easily, but I wouldn't do the build again.  Really it needs to hit anyone within the max range along the path.  I should not be able to get the path right, and be too close to hit someone.  Maybe it is because I had quick cast on, I don't know what the hitbox looks like without quick cast on.  Is it more of an AOE denotation rather than a range radius?

The Q is simply to unreliable.  Even with a totally Q based build (I did take your level 4 talent), and I took the other heroic to test it out...he still had decent sustain.  So I can imagine it being quite nice with the build you posted.  I did get interrupted once doing the slam heroic, which was annoying...it doesn't lower the CD like most other channeling heroics do.  For that reason alone it isn't worth taking IMO, even for the disruption.  The range isn't THAT great on it anyway.


That being said, I'll try this build out.  He was fun to play, even with all the situational talents I picked (I wanted to try them out for myself).

After a few games of.. Well, admittedly, quick match.. I found his Wrath of the Angiris talent very useful at level 10. Combined with the level 20 talent and the cleave.. It's actually a very good combination. Even though it's significantly harder to utilize. Perhaps turn the big old X into a question mark, it does work very well, albeit in certain situations.

Was able to try Imperius tonight and I have to agree with the build posted pretty much 100%.  Imperius really wants to just wade into the enemy with his fire armor on and swinging his spear around like a crazy man and the posted build does that perfectly.  A simple yet effective build and there is nothing wrong with that.

Haven't tried out Imperius myself, but played with and against him in nearly 100% of my quick matches, he (from both team) almost always tops the hero damage within his team. 

Some thoughts on talents: (I don't remember the talents' names)

That W talent on 7 is pure trash. It looks like the laser from the Triglav Protector, but the damage is hilariously low. The Q talent on 7 is also bad: you have to use W to mark the enemy first, and NOT consuming the mark, then hit them with your Q. Not only it's way too complicated, but it also promotes inflexible and sub-optimal ability usage. 

Wrath of the Angiris is yet another flashy, but impractical heroic. Thinking about Falling Sword, Planet Cracker and Deadly Charge.

I played a lot of QM with Imperius, and I prefer the Q build when it's suitable. A tips for aiming better with Q, its to use W immediatly before (the slowing effect help a lot), just like Lunara. Because of that, I wanted to share that the Q talent at 7 just fit naturally with that way of connecting Q.

I didnt find in Blizzard forum where to say the improvement that should be made, if someone know better.

For that talent, I hoped (in Try mode) that after 2 second, if it touch an hero it would trig another valorous brand after you basic attack between. Nope, so it's clearly suboptimal. But I think it would at least buff it if it did.

My other concern is Wrath of the Angiris, you can pass wall or obstacle for lifting an hero, but once you are in the sky! you are not even able to pass over your own wall. That's so unflavorfull! They need to fix that.

The biggest trick missing here, is that his Q can be used to jump over many walls, allowing for a sneaky escape or a surprise attack

      Senior Game Designer Adam Jackson, also known as AZJackson in the Heroes community, has left the Heroes of the Storm team for another project within Blizzard. 
      The Heroes of the Storm team has yet again lost a valuable asset. Senior Game Designer Adam Jackson announced he's leaving for another project within the company.
      The important question is: How many developers remain on the Heroes of the Storm team right now?
      Here's Adam's "Thank You and Farewell" message he left on the official forums.
      Hello friends,
      I’ve always believed that strong communication and building trust is paramount to making the world a better place, so I wanted to have the chance to talk with all of you about a change to the team.
      I’ve reached a point in my career where I’ve come to the difficult decision to move on to another project. I’ve been a part of the Heroes team for a very long time now, and in order to grow as a person and a designer, I believe it’s important to constantly challenge myself in new ways. I’m still going to be at Blizzard, and I’m very excited about the new challenges that I get to overcome and the awesome experiences that I’ll be able to help bring to you.
      I know these kinds of things are never great to hear, however I wanted to reassure you that we did hire a replacement for my position, and that it was someone who I was able to personally vet because it was very important to both me and the team that the game had someone who we felt could do the job and do it well. They have been around since the beginning of the game’s life and are just as passionate as I am about making Heroes the best that it can be. I have total faith that they will do a good job.
      Being able to work on the Heroes team was such a life-changing experience for me. I first started in QA on a team who, among many other things, got to play the very first versions of Heroes and give feedback to the developers on the many, many wacky ideas that were iterated on to make this game something special. This was the first Hero Brawler MOBA that I ever played, and once I started playing I couldn’t wait to come into work on the days where we got to playtest it. I knew we were creating something special, and I wanted so badly to be a part of it.
      I still vividly remember getting the call that I got the job to be a designer on this team, and shedding tears of joy outside of one of our buildings when it happened. It was a surreal moment for me because, like so many others, I had dreamed for many, many years of being a designer at Blizzard Entertainment with low expectations of it actually happening. It was one of those things you think would be the best thing in the world – but of course life can be hard and actually achieving those crazy, long-shot dreams is rare. I’m lucky to have been given a chance to work on this great game with incredibly talented people.
      Over the last couple of years I was also given the chance to oversee a lot of the content that went into the game. Being able to create and execute on my own balance philosophies for such a large IP was an incredible experience that I’m very grateful to have had. I want to say thank you to Blizzard and to the leaders on the team who had enough faith in me to take on such a monumental task. I also want to thank those who are currently or have worked on Heroes in the past. You know who you are and how special this project was and is, and I have nothing but the highest respect for you all.
      I want to say thank you to those who are reading this for continuing to support us. As someone on the inside, I can tell you that the people who work on Heroes care deeply about giving you the best experience that they can. Even if we don’t always respond, I can assure you that your posts, your views, and your passion for our game do not go unnoticed. I’ve read almost every post on our forums, on Reddit, and have spent countless hours watching various streamers and live events. We’re watching and enjoying this ride just as much as you are.
      I want to leave with a quote that has stuck with me that I blatantly stole from a good friend.
      “How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard” – Winnie the Pooh
      I’ll see you all… In the Nexus.
