Introduction Top

Frist of all I want to introduce myself. My name is Obnox and I live in Germany, so it is possible that my English is not that perfect. I played several games on high ranks before, most likely under the name "Obnox" or a name with the ending "-nox" like "Prednox" or "Deathnox". For a long time I was raiding with the guild "Affenjungs INC" in World of Warcraft and also participated "Melk Trupp" one of the best PvP guilds EU. In League of Legends I am curretnly Diamond 4, but since I focused on Heroes of the Storm I almost never play it. I am playing Heroes of the Storm since the technical alpha and have been since then on rank 1-5.

Basics Top

I will introduce you the Tank build of Johanna. In my opinion she is a very steady tank and has good CC skills but has a bad Monility unilke other Tanks.


F***ing nice CCs (Can pull back Heroes, Stuns, Blind and also Slow them)
With a good Healer in your Team she will almost live forever
Good Poke


Lacks off Mobility
Her Damage is not that high with this build
Can have Mana Problems

Basic Abilities

Q Punish
Nice Slow and short CD. You should use it when an enemy Hero try to escape.

W Condemn
Can pull back your enemys which is really nice and useful. Also stun them for a little amount of time. After pulling back the enemy you should use Punish

E Shield Glare
Blind your enemys for 2 Basic Attacks. Very useful Ability which should be used against the enemy Assasin.

Heroic Abilities

Falling Sword
You can engage in Teamfights or escape from them.

Blessed Shield
Stun the enemy Team which can give you a huge advantage!

Talents Overview Top


Tier 1
I would take Reinforce because your Block will always stack up when you use a Basic Ability and this is in teamfights really helpful.

Tier 2
Laws of Hope You gain more Health Regeneration and the 20% healing can save you sometimes in critical moments.

Alternative: Amplified Healing Really useful Talent if you have a strong healer like Lili in your Team.

Tier 3
The Crusade Marches On You can lower your CD on Iron Skin with it which. Perfectly match with Hold Your Ground from Tier 5.

Alternative: Battle Monument

Tier 4 / Ultimate
Blessed Shield
I prefer this for the Stun and the low CD time.

Falling Sword

Tier 5
Hold Your Ground
With the Tier 3 Talent we can use Iron Skin frequentier, so this shield bonus is just awesome.

Spell Shield

Burning Rage

Tier 6
Fanaticism With this you have more Mobility in Teamfights.

Alternative: Imposing Presence

Holy Renewal Additional Heal for you.

Tier 7
Indestructible It has a long CD but and its duration is only 5 sec but with this talent you get a second live.

-- I am still testing this Hero and I will update this Guide everyday --

At the moment I am very busy with my A-Levels so the next huge update to this guide will be in the very next day. I am sorry for that.
