Level 1 Talents for Muradin

Muradin Perfect Storm ?
Perfect Storm (Level 1) World of Warcraft Muradin

Quest: Every time Muradin hits an enemy Hero with a Basic Attack, increase Storm Bolt's damage by 0.75. If an enemy Hero is killed within 3 seconds of being hit by a Storm Bolt increase its damage by an additional 10.

Perfect Storm Icon Perfect Storm is a decent Quest-based Talent that increases Muradin's damage by a noticeable amount if you manage to get a considerable amount of stacks via Basic Attacks against Heroes or by killing Heroes who have been recently hit by Storm Bolt Icon Storm Bolt. To put this in perspective, you need about 13 Basic Attacks to match the value of 1 Hero killed.

The bonus provided by this Talent gets amplified by Sledgehammer Icon Sledgehammer at Level 4 when hitting non-Heroic enemies with Storm Bolt Icon Storm Bolt. Similarly, Rewind Icon Rewind at Level 20 will allow you to deal even more damage to enemy Heroes.

Muradin Dwarf Block ?
Dwarf Block (Level 1) World of Warcraft Muradin

Casting Dwarf Toss grants 4 charges of Block. Each Block charge grants 75 Physical Armor against a single enemy Hero Basic Attack, reducing the damage taken by 75%.

Dwarf Block Icon Dwarf Block is a good Talent that offers a solid increase to your survivability when playing against Heroes with slow but heavy-hitting Basic Attacks (such as Hanzo) and really bad when playing against Heroes with fast-hitting Basic Attacks (like Tychus).

When you are in a safe area and you do not expect to be in danger for a dozen of seconds, you can Dwarf Toss Icon Dwarf Toss just to get 4 Block stacks from this Talent because they do not expire over time.

Muradin Third Wind
Third Wind (Level 1) World of Warcraft Muradin

Increases Health Restoration rate to 90 (+4% per level) per second, and raises Health threshold to 60% Health for improved 180 (+4% per level) per second Restoration.

Third Wind Icon Third Wind is a strong Talent that allows Muradin to get an even more favorable trade when damaging enemy Heroes and getting damaged in return because he will get his Health back for free by staying far from the action for a dozen of seconds, a strategy that is extremely valuable on his best Maps (for example Battlefield of Eternity).

4.

Level 4 Talents for Muradin

Muradin Sledgehammer ?
Sledgehammer (Level 4) World of Warcraft Muradin

Stormbolt deals 350% damage to non-Heroic enemies. Increase Storm Bolt's cooldown reduction from 1 second to 1.25 seconds per Basic Attack.

Sledgehammer Icon Sledgehammer is a decent Talent that gives bonus damage against non-Heroic enemies, to help you clearing Mercenaries (including Bosses) and Monsters, and additional cooldown reduction for Storm Bolt Icon Storm Bolt when using Basic Attacks against enemy Heroes after Level 10.

Combined with Perfect Storm Icon Perfect Storm, this Talent can heavily increase the damage that Muradin can deal to non-Heroes during the mid and late game.

Muradin Reverberation
Reverberation (Level 4) World of Warcraft Muradin

Increases the Attack Speed Slow of Thunder Clap from 30% to 50% and the duration from 2.5 seconds to 3.5 seconds. Each enemy Hero hit reduces your Heroic Ability cooldown by 5%.

Reverberation Icon Reverberation is a strong Talent that empowers Thunder Clap Icon Thunder Clap against Heroes who rely on Basic Attacks and reduces the cooldown of your Heroic Ability by a small amount—in particular, by 4.5 seconds when playing Avatar Icon Avatar and by 2 seconds when playing Haymaker Icon Haymaker.

Muradin Thunder Burn ?
Thunder Burn (Level 4) World of Warcraft Muradin

Hitting an enemy Hero with Thunder Clap triggers a second explosion 2 seconds later in the same location that deals 75% damage.

Thunder Burn Icon Thunder Burn is a good Talent that makes Thunder Clap Icon Thunder Clap explode a second time, for a portion of its damage, 2 seconds after hitting an enemy Hero with the first explosion.

The second explosion fully benefits from Healing Static Icon Healing Static or Thunder Strike Icon Thunder Strike at Level 13. Remember that it is possible that the enemy Heroes dodge the first explosion, unless you use Storm Bolt Icon Storm Bolt to keep them there.

5.

Level 7 Talents for Muradin

Muradin Heavy Impact
Heavy Impact (Level 7) World of Warcraft Muradin

Enemies hit by Dwarf Toss are Slowed by 80% for 1.5 seconds.

Heavy Impact Icon Heavy Impact is a good Talent that adds a huge Slow effect to Dwarf Toss Icon Dwarf Toss.

You can use the Slow provided to peel for your team, to increases the chance that Storm Bolt Icon Storm Bolt will hit, or to get a good angle for Haymaker Icon Haymaker by walking around the enemy Hero you intend to hit.

Muradin Give 'em the Axe! ?
Give 'em the Axe! (Level 7) World of Warcraft Muradin

Attacking a Hero that is Stunned, Rooted, or Slowed increases Muradin's Basic Attack damage by 50% for 3 seconds.

Give 'em the Axe! Icon Give 'em the Axe! is a strong Talent that synergizes very well with two of Muradin's Basic Abilities—namely Storm Bolt Icon Storm Bolt and Thunder Clap Icon Thunder Clap—and increases Muradin's single target damage by a large amount, allowing you to pressure enemy Heroes on your own.

Muradin Skullcracker ?
Skullcracker (Level 7) World of Warcraft Muradin

Every 3rd Basic Attack against the same enemy deals 90% bonus damage and Stuns them for 0.25 seconds.

Skullcracker Icon Skullcracker is a situational Talent that causes every third Basic Attack to hit harder and briefly Stun the target.

This kind of effect may useful against certain Heroes who heavily rely on channeling some of their Abilities to be effective (like Yrel). To time your Skullcracker Icon Skullcracker, you have to hold your third Basic Attack until you will need its Stun effect, something that makes you lose damage and not get the cooldown reduction for Storm Bolt Icon Storm Bolt.

Deal 15 (+4% per level) damage per second to nearby enemies and heal for 75% of the damage dealt. Hitting an enemy Hero with Storm Bolt increase this damage by 200% for 3 seconds.

The second explosion of Thunder Clap Icon Thunder Clap generated by Thunder Burn Icon Thunder Burn at Level 4 also benefits from this Talent. Remember that it will not trigger if you do not hit a Hero with the first explosion and that the bonus damage will not happen if another enemy enters the area.

Level 16 Talents for Muradin

Muradin Dwarf Launch
Dwarf Launch (Level 16) World of Warcraft Muradin

Increase the range of Dwarf Toss by 40%. Hitting an enemy Hero with Dwarf Toss reduces its cooldown by 2 seconds.

Dwarf Launch Icon Dwarf Launch is a strong Talent that heavily increases the distance covered by Dwarf Toss Icon Dwarf Toss, allowing Muradin to engage from a high distance.

The small cooldown reduction provided by this Talent slightly helps you mitigate the fact you are wasting your only form of escape to engage, however, this bonus is so low that will not be enough to allow a quick retreat right after jumping aggressively but you will have to stay there for multiple seconds before having Dwarf Toss Icon Dwarf Toss available again.

Muradin Imposing Presence

  • Cooldown: 20 seconds

Activate to reduce the Attack Speed by 50% and Movement Speed by 20% of nearby Heroes and Summons for 2.5 seconds.

Imposing Presence Icon Imposing Presence is a weak Talent that passively reduces the Attack Speed of enemy Heroes attacking Muradin and, when activated, applies a Slow and reduces the Attack Speed of nearby enemy Heroes and Summons.

With Thunder Clap Icon Thunder Clap already fulfilling the same purpose, this Talent is usually not needed on Muradin.

Muradin Stoneform ?
Stoneform (Level 16) World of Warcraft Muradin

Activate to heal Muradin for 30% of his maximum Health over 10 seconds. Second Wind is disabled during this time.

Stoneform Icon Stoneform is a good Talent that increases Muradin's survivability by a solid amount, especially if you chose Avatar Icon Avatar at Level 10.

Considering it has a long cooldown, do not waste it out of combat and make sure to have it available before engaging the enemy team.

Ideally, you want to activate it during Avatar Icon Avatar in order to regenerate a larger amount of Health per second.

Level 20 Talents for Muradin

Muradin Unstoppable Force ?
Unstoppable Force (Level 20) World of Warcraft Muradin

Muradin Hardened Shield ?
Hardened Shield (Level 20) World of Warcraft Muradin
  • Cooldown: 60 seconds

Activate to gain 75 Armor for 4 seconds, taking 75% less damage.

Hardened Shield Icon Hardened Shield is a situational Talent that may be useful when it is literally impossible for you to survive during team fights in the late game because the enemy team is just focusing you with burst damage.

When you feel in danger, we suggest you to activate it as soon as possible, before you get denied by crowd control.

Muradin Rewind
Rewind (Level 20) World of Warcraft Muradin
  • Cooldown: 60 seconds

Activate to reset the cooldowns of your Basic Abilities.

The second charge of Thunder Clap Icon Thunder Clap helps you peel a bit more and synergy with Talents which empower that Basic Ability.

The second charge of Dwarf Toss Icon Dwarf Toss allows you to have an escape after using the first one to engage, but it can also be used to reposition offensively or defensively.
