Multiclass Healer/R.Assassin

Vol'jin filled many roles in life and all of his skills are yet to be seen. The shadow hunter have demonstrated powers over many areas, thus, is a suitable hero for Multiclass, being either Healer or Ranged Assassin.


This concept is meant to reach every aspect of the Shadow Hunter we've seen in WC and WoW. While they've been shown to have many support abilities on early games, with the expansion of lore we've come to know how deadly and stealthy they can be. In order to have both aspects I chose the most iconic wards to upgrade the basic abilities and make them more focused in either healing or killing, while keeping the potential for both gameplay styles.

As a Ranged Assassin Vol'jin rellies more on strategy and opportunity than in high damage. He excels in finishing enemies who are trying to run or punish a bad position. While his range is not that big, his kit helps him survive most divers.
The key to defeat Vol'jin is to not give him the opportunity to hunt you down and remember he is weak against multiple enemies.

As a Healer Vol'jin is more like his WC version while also having the leader aspect, coordinating the battle. His supportive abilities become more powerful and his Big Bad Voodoo creates a safe zone that have great sinergy with his healing chain. The upgradet his path gives for the Voodoo Web allows him to save his allies withouth having to sacrifice himself and Shadow Glaive becomes a very useful ability in team fights.
In order to defeat Healer Vol'jin the enemy team must be aware of his cooldowns and keep stuns to interrupt his heroic ability. Also, bursting enemies down once they are half damaged is more reliable since his healing becomes more powerful on dying allies and is kinda weak on sustaining peeling tanks.
