General Information

Welcome to our Uther guide for Heroes of the Storm. Here you will learn everything you need to know in order to play Uther in a competitive environment, whether you play on your own or with a team.

Note that this guide is still in our older format and it will eventually be moved to the new format. More information here.

Uther's weaker maps None

Ability Usage:

  • Holy Light Icon Holy Light is expensive and has a long cooldown; use it sparingly, and against targets being focused down.
  • Use Hammer of Justice Icon Hammer of Justice against high-priority targets that must be crowd controlled or have crowd control on them that is about to expire.
  • Divine Shield Icon Divine Shield has broadly different offensive and defensive uses; pay attention to your enemy's and your own team compositions to find out who the aggressor should be.

2. Introduction

Uther is a melee Support Hero. His strongest points are his burst healing, reliable crowd control, and flexible Heroic ability choices. Although relatively resilient for a healer, the short range of his abilities requires him to position himself relatively close to his frontline.

3. Strengths

  • Strong burst healing
  • Reliable crowd control
  • Access to Cleanse Icon Cleanse
  • Heroic ability choices that can respond to a variety of situations

4. Weaknesses

  • Low damage output
  • Poor waveclear
  • Several talent-based abilities to manage

5. Role In The Current Meta

Uther is a solid Support Hero that can fit in most team compositions. His only real weakness of lacking sustained damage — a trait shared by most healers — must be covered by other team members. Besides healing, Uther provides a reliable stun, Hammer of Justice Icon Hammer of Justice, which is highly useful for initiating, following up, and peeling. Divine Storm Icon Divine Storm, as a Heroic ability choice, provides similar utility over a large area of effect but on a longer cooldown.

Uther is notable for his ability to protect a single-target from certain death; Holy Light Icon Holy Light provides more instant healing than any other ability, while Protective Shield Icon Protective Shield, Cleanse Icon Cleanse, and especially Divine Shield Icon Divine Shield all situationally neuter burst-reliant team compositions.
