Introduction Top

Hi all!


My name is VimBlast or Vim and this is my third guide!
I'm a rank 1 Player on EU and my main Heroes are Tyrande, Sylvanas & Kaelthas (according to HotS).

This build is something that goes against the curve (like all my builds) and turns out to be another way to play this hero effectively.

The combo we're trying to achieve
Ruthless Onslaught -> Hamstring -> Auto Attack -> Hamstring -> Auto Attack
If you can get a Butcher's Brand in there any where, that'll be quite useful to surviving!
This in theory should kill any squishy reliably.

IMAGINE
if you had a Tyrande (as an example of a hero with a fantastic stun) on your team landing those stuns, you wouldn't need to use Ruthless Onslaught to catch them, you could just Q -> AA -> Q -> AA ->> Dead with the double damage from your level 4 talent Cheap Shot.

Talent Thoughts Top

Level 1
Invigoration
This talent just makes this build what it is. It reduces the CD for the level 4 & level 16 talents and gives you half the mana cost back if you land it, which is a BIG deal in this build.

Level 4
Cheap Shot
This sounds kinda bad if you just quickly read it but it becomes almost a three shot kill mechanic late game. So without anyone else on your team who has stuns, slows or roots, you already have your E which stuns them for 1 second, it gives you plenty of time to land a quick Q. Late game you have your level 16 talent which will keep them slowed for longer which in turn makes it super easy for you to get double damage on your Hamstring.

Level 7
Brutal Strike
This just combo's your Hamstring really efficiently with your Auto Attack for you to be a three hit kill mechanic late game (this is the third part with Hamstring being the second part and Ruthless Onslaught being the first).

Level 10
Furnace Blast
Now this is completely up to you depending on the situation and who you're agains't, more a less all of the time you want to take Furnace Blast just because it's another combo for your abilities. Lamb to the Slaughter is really effective if you're against squishy enemies that have really good movement abilities e.g. Zeratul.

Level 13
Savage Charge
Now this talent was a toss up on Savage Charge & Spell Shield. This choice is completely up to you dependant on your enemies. Say you're against a Cho'Gall, you want to take Savage Charge because it's health damage but on the other hand, if you're against a Nova, you want to take Spell Shield so you can take her damage and hopefully two/three shot her with ease.

Level 16
Crippling Slam
Now don't get me wrong, this is probably the worst of the talents in this section but overall, it's the best one to chose with the build. Hear me out. Hamstring's slow no longer fades out, and the duration is increased by 25% which in turn means that you have more time to get out another Hamstring whilst they're still slowed which gives you double damage on your Hamstring. As it doesn't fade out any more AND it's longer, your level 7 Talent Brutal Strike will now be easier to hit TWICE throughout the slow duration!

Level 20
Nexus Blades
This just works perfectly with our level 7 talent Brutal Strike because of the extra damage after the combo.

Pros & Cons Top

Pros

    High hero damage.
    Very high burst when you land your E.
    Can poke efficiently.

Cons

    Very dependant on healer since you're not going AS Build.
    Not a build you can just play and win.
    Dependant on crowd control by your or someone else.
