Muradin's Tips and Tricks

2.

Storm Bolt

Muradin Storm Bolt
Storm Bolt (Q) World of Warcraft Muradin
  • Mana: 45
  • Cooldown: 10 seconds

Throw a hammer, dealing 110 (+4% per level) damage to the first enemy hit and Stunning them for 1.25 seconds.

Quest: Hit 25 Heroes with Storm Bolt. Heroes who die within 2.5 seconds of being hit by Storm Bolt count as hitting 3 additional Heroes.

Reward: Storm Bolt pierces to hit an additional target. Muradin's Basic Attacks reduce the cooldown of Storm Bolt by 1 second and restore 3 Mana.

Storm Bolt Icon Storm Bolt is a Basic Ability which provides Muradin a ranged Stun. As a Muradin player, you should take your time to closely watch how enemy Heroes are moving because this Ability has a small delay and the projectile is not that fast, making it hard to connect if you do not predict the target's movement, assuming they are trying to juke you.

Muradin starts the game with a Baseline Quest that requires him to hit 25 enemy Heroes with Storm Bolt. All enemy Heroes who die within 2.5 seconds of being hit by Storm Bolt grant 4 stacks instead of 1. Upon completion, Storm Bolt can pierce the first target hit and Muradin's Basic Attacks reduce the cooldown of Storm Bolt by 1 second, allowing you to potentially Stun 2 enemy Heroes every 5 seconds.

Thunder Clap

Thunder Clap (W) World of Warcraft Muradin
  • Mana: 50
  • Cooldown: 8 seconds

Blast nearby enemies for 96 (+4% per level) damage and Slow them by 30% for 2.5 seconds. Heroes hit also have their Attack Speed reduced by 30% for the duration.

Thunder Clap Icon Thunder Clap is a Basic Ability that Slows, reduces the Attack Speed, and deals damage to every enemy in a small radius around Muradin. You can use this Ability to lower the chances to miss Storm Bolt Icon Storm Bolt thanks to the Slow provided.

4.

Dwarf Toss

Muradin Dwarf Toss
Dwarf Toss (E) World of Warcraft Muradin
  • Mana: 55
  • Cooldown: 10 seconds

Leap to target location, dealing 59 (+4% per level) damage to enemies on landing. Upon leaping, gain 30 Armor for 2 seconds, reducing damage taken by 30%.

Dwarf Toss Icon Dwarf Toss is a Basic Ability that allows Muradin to either increase or close the gap between him and enemy Heroes.

When you are in danger, use it to escape or to gain Armor (for example when Kael'thas uses Pyroblast Icon Pyroblast on you). A good trick to suddenly reach safety is to leap over impassable terrain, especially useful when trying to escape from enemy Heroes who do not have such tool.

When your team is in danger, use it to peel. While it does not provide any peeling on its own, it allows you quickly reposition near allied Heroes who need help.

When your team wants to force a team fight, use it to engage. While it slightly increases your survivability by giving you Armor, be extremely careful when choosing to do so because you will not have your escape anymore. Before doing aggressive plays like this, always check the Minimap to see if your team is close enough to follow you immediately, else you will end up dying alone for no reason.

Avatar

Muradin Avatar
Avatar (R) World of Warcraft Muradin
  • Heroic
  • Mana: 80
  • Cooldown: 90 seconds

Transform for 20 seconds, gaining 1053 Health.

Avatar Icon Avatar is a Heroic Ability that increases Muradin's maximum Health for 20 seconds. The additional Health he immediately receive acts as a form of burst healing that helps him to survive when being focused by the enemy team.

Do not use it too early, else the enemy team will just disengage and wait for it to expire. Do not use it too late, else the enemy team will crowd control you to death before you will be able to cast it.

In this section we discuss how this Heroic Ability works and give some tips on how to use it. If you are looking for a detailed explanation on when and why you should pick it, check the dedicated section in the Talent Build page.

Haymaker

Muradin Haymaker
Haymaker (R) World of Warcraft Muradin
  • Heroic
  • Mana: 60
  • Cooldown: 40 seconds

Stun target enemy Hero, and wind up a punch dealing 319 (+4% per level) damage and knocking the target back, hitting enemies in the way for 319 (+4% per level) damage and knocking them aside.

Haymaker Icon Haymaker is a Heroic Ability that should usually be used to push dangerous enemy Heroes far from your team as a form of peeling, however, it can occasionally be used to push vulnerable enemy Heroes towards your team as a form of engage.

Second Wind

Muradin Second Wind
Second Wind (D) World of Warcraft Muradin
  • Passive

Muradin restores 55 (+4% per level) Health per second when he has not taken damage for 4 seconds. When below 40% Health, increased to 111 (+4% per level) Health per second.

Second Wind Icon Second Wind is a Trait that allows Muradin to quickly regenerate his Health when not taking damage. Experienced players will get a lot of value out of it by constantly harassing enemy Heroes during the early game.

While you will never need to use your Hearthstone to regenerate your Health, your Mana will eventually reach critical values and force you away from the battlefield for a while anyways.
