3.1.

Discussion

Perfect Storm Icon Perfect Storm is a decent Quest-based Talent that increases Muradin's damage by a small but noticeable amount, but only if you manage to get a considerable amount of stacks.

Dwarf Block Icon Dwarf Block is a situational 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). especially against Heroes who rely on their Basic Attacks.

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. Hitting a Hero grants an additional stack of his baseline quest.

Muradin Reverberation
Reverberation (Level 4) World of Warcraft Muradin

Increases the Attack Speed Slow of Thunder Clap from 25% to 50% and the duration from 2.5 seconds to 3.5 seconds. Each enemy Hero hit reduces your Heroic Ability cooldown by 5%.

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 50% damage.

4.1.

Discussion

Sledgehammer Icon Sledgehammer is a situational Talent that gives bonus damage against non-Heroic enemies. Pick this Talent only if your team heavily struggles at capturing and/or defending Mercenary Camps, even if that is not a Tank's job when your team drafts and plays optimally.

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.

Thunder Burn Icon Thunder Burn is a decent Talent that makes Thunder Clap Icon Thunder Clap explode a second time 2 seconds after hitting an enemy Hero with the first explosion. The second explosion fully benefits from all Talents that empower the same Basic Ability, but remember that it is possible that the enemy Heroes walk out of the area in time, unless you use Storm Bolt Icon Storm Bolt between the explosions.

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.

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.

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.

5.1.

Discussion

Heavy Impact Icon Heavy Impact is a weak Talent that adds a huge Slow effect to Dwarf Toss Icon Dwarf Toss. We do not recommend this Talent because it competes with way better options, especially if you consider that Dwarf Toss is mostly a defensive tool.

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.

Skullcracker Icon Skullcracker is a weak Talent that causes every third Basic Attack to hit harder and briefly Stun the target. While this kind of effect may useful against certain Heroes who heavily rely on channeling some of their Abilities to be effective (like Whirlwind Icon Whirlwind by Sonya), we do not recommend this Talent because it forces you to hold your third Basic Attack until you need its Stun effect, something that makes you lose damage and not get the cooldown reduction for Storm Bolt Icon Storm Bolt.

6.

Level 10 Talents for Muradin

Muradin Avatar
Avatar (Level 10) World of Warcraft Muradin
  • Mana: 80
  • Cooldown: 90 seconds

Transform for 20 seconds, gaining 1053 Health.

Muradin Haymaker ?
Haymaker (Level 10) World of Warcraft Muradin
  • 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.

6.1.

Discussion

Avatar Icon Avatar is a strong Heroic Ability that heavily boosts Muradin's survivability by increasing his maximum Health, therefore it has synergy with percent-based healing effects and suffers percent damage. Remember to use Stoneform Icon Stoneform during Avatar to increase its effectiveness from 30% to around 40% of Muradin's baseline maximum Health.

Haymaker Icon Haymaker is a situational Heroic Ability that should mostly be used to push a dangerous enemy Hero away from your team and fight with a numerical advantage for a few seconds. Do not pick this Talent when the enemy team can easily kill you because Avatar Icon Avatar will help you with that.

7.

Level 13 Talents for Muradin

Muradin Healing Static ?
Healing Static (Level 13) World of Warcraft Muradin

Muradin heals for 5% of his maximum Health for each Hero hit by Thunder Clap.

Muradin Thunder Strike ?
Thunder Strike (Level 13) World of Warcraft Muradin

Thunder Clap deals 300% damage if only one target is hit.

Passive: Increase the duration of Dwarf Toss's Armor by 2 seconds.

Muradin Bronzebeard Rage
Bronzebeard Rage (Level 13) World of Warcraft Muradin

Deal 20 (+4% per level) damage per second to nearby enemies and heal for 75% of the damage dealt this way. Basic Attacks against a Hero that is Stunned, Rooted, or Slowed increase this damage by 100% for 3 seconds.

7.1.

Discussion

Healing Static Icon Healing Static is a good Talent that provides self-healing to Muradin, especially if he is surrounded by multiple enemy Heroes. The second explosion of Thunder Clap Icon Thunder Clap generated by Thunder Burn Icon Thunder Burn at Level 4 also benefits from this Talent, but remember that it will not trigger if you do not hit a Hero with the first one.

Thunder Strike Icon Thunder Strike is a decent Talent that drastically increases the damage done by Thunder Clap Icon Thunder Clap if it hits a single enemy. The second explosion of Thunder Clap Icon Thunder Clap generated by Thunder Burn Icon Thunder Burn at Level 4 also benefits from this Talent, but remember that it will not trigger if you do not hit a Hero with the first one and that the bonus damage will not happen if another enemy enters the area.

Bronzebeard Rage Icon Bronzebeard Rage is a strong Talent that provides a solid amount of area of effect damage and self-healing. We recommend this Talent because it greatly increases Muradin's survivability and damage output with a condition that is not hard to fulfill because Storm Bolt Icon Storm Bolt and Thunder Clap Icon Thunder Clap will provide the crowd control it requires.

8.

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 3 seconds.

Muradin Imposing Presence
Imposing Presence (Level 16) World of Warcraft Muradin
  • 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.

Passive: Heroes and Summons that attack your Hero have their Attack Speed Slowed by 20% for 2.5 seconds.

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.

8.1.

Discussion

Dwarf Launch Icon Dwarf Launch is a situational Talent that heavily increases the distance covered by Dwarf Toss Icon Dwarf Toss, allowing Muradin to engage from a high distance. The cooldown reduction provided helps you mitigate the fact you are wasting your only form of escape to engage.

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.

Stoneform Icon Stoneform is a strong 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, 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.

9.

Level 20 Talents for Muradin

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

While active, Avatar grants 20 Armor and causes Muradin's Basic Attacks to reduce the cooldowns of Thunder Clap and Dwarf Toss by 0.75 seconds.

Muradin Grand Slam
Grand Slam (Level 20) World of Warcraft Muradin

Haymaker gains a 2nd charge and its damage is increased by 25%. If a Hero dies within 3 seconds of being hit by Haymaker, instantly gain 1 charge.

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.

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

Activate to reset the cooldowns of your Basic Abilities.

9.1.

Discussion

Unstoppable Force Icon Unstoppable Force is a decent Talent that increases Muradin's survivability by giving him some Armor and allows him to reduce the cooldown of Thunder Clap Icon Thunder Clap and Dwarf Toss Icon Dwarf Toss with each Basic Attack.

Grand Slam Icon Grand Slam is a weak Talent that adds a second Charge of Haymaker Icon Haymaker and make them deal 25% more damage. Takedowns on enemy Heroes recently hit by Haymaker restore 1 Charge. We do not recommend this Talent because you can get way more value with Rewind Icon Rewind.

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.

Rewind Icon Rewind is a strong Talent that reset the cooldown on every Muradin's Basic Ability. The second charge of Storm Bolt Icon Storm Bolt is a huge playmaking tool that helps you secure kills or save allied Heroes. 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.
