Threat Hero Notes
1
Chromie Oh, Chromie. Dodge her skills and hit Gloom if you get Looped. Rain of Vengeance good to interrupt her escapes
2
  No Threat
3
Falstad Falstad is easy to poke with Q, W, and Strafe. All 3 builds are effective against him. If you commit, you gotta finish him fast before he can get value from his continuous W.
3
Fenix Q Arrow won't follow Fenix after he Warps. All 3 builds are good against him. Hit Gloom to mitigate both heroics
3
Illidan Caltrops (1) is very good against getting away from Illidan. Use abilities during Evasion, AA while it's down. Strafe > Rain for killing Illidan
3
Junkrat Don't get hit by Mine and don't walk into Traps and you'll be find. Gloom against his heroics.
4
Maiev Maiev has to be close range to do anything. You can seriously sit and AA her for +25% HP before
4
Tracer You have to trade damage with Tracer to win. Spell shield her bomb
5
  No Threat
6
Genji Trade damage with Genji whenever you can. Gloom won't keep you alive through his kill combo. Q and W builds are better than the AA build. Strafe is an excellent tool for killing Genji when he tries to E to safety.
6
Greymane Caltrops (1) is pretty good against GM. Gloom to survive his E+R kill combo. Valla has better poke.
6
Gul'dan If you can dodge Corruption well you will be sitting pretty.
6
Hanzo Getting to Hanzo in the backline and pressuring him is key. Q build is slightly better than the rest.
6
Kael'thas Don't give him free W's on you bc that damage will add up and he gets them for free! Gloom for Pyroblast. Poking and close pressure are keys to beating him.
6
Li-Ming The Queen of Pokes
6
Nova A competent Nova has free poke. Multishot and Strafe are very good against her escape (Ghost Protocol)
6
Thrall Maintain good distance to get free AAs. Bully him when his Root is on CD. Overextending is begging to be EQ'd or Sundered.
6
Tychus Pretty fair fight. Fun too.
7
  No Threat
8
Jaina Gloom mitigates most of her damage but the inevitable Slow and Roots will get you killed. She can also spec into physical armour or decent shielding. Her Q+E burst is her biggest threat. Poke with Q + W + Strafe.
8
Kel'Thuzad To kill KTZ you have to make sure he misses at least one Chain before you can safely approach and kill. Once you get close he'll be in trouble so get close. Gloom can save you from his combo but that won't be until 13!
8
Lunara Spell shield effective against Leap/Burst build.
8
Raynor RAYNOR HAS A FREE HEAL YOU CAN'T DO MUCH. JUST DON'T DIE OR LOSE LANE.
8
The Butcher Butcher is Butcher. Easy to kill early, hard to kill after stacked. Don't give him free healing off brand -kill when it's on CD.
9
  No Threat
10
Cassia Cassia has stronger burst and poke, a Blind, and natural physical armour, all of which are very strong against Valla. Valla has to get in damage primarily with her abilities without getting blown up by Fend.
10
Valeera Her stun/silence kill combo will kill before you can hit the spell shield. Hit it early and expect her coming.
10
Zeratul Hit the spell shield early, it will block burst but not his deadly AAs. He gets free damage with Bink.
10
Zul'jin Can't survive against Taz'Dingo. Xul damage > Valla damage

TALENT ALTERNATIVE FOR ALL BUILDS: Caltrops


- Only ever take this against melee heroes who like to dive Genji Illidan Maiev Artanis Valeera
- Only ever take this if you think allies cannot peel any of the above enemies


Q - Arrow Build (Single Target Hunter) Top

Combo Sequence: Q > E > Q > W > *R > AA


*R: Rain of Vengeance Can drop anytime during the combo to keep the target in place or interrupt.

TALENT ALTERNATIVE 7: Arsenal


- More damage and useful CD reduction especially during a teamfight

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- Reliable damage with good range; Able to hit multiple enemies

- Better wave clear

- AoE Monster Multishot + Strafe

- Seething Hatred + Rancor Diversifies your damage, strengthening your AA damage, so you aren't completely reliant on Multishot for damage

- Seething Hatred + Gloom Strengthens your defense against incoming burst. Stack to 30 Spell armour with only 5 AAs for times when Kel'Thuzad won't let you get 10

- Seething Hatred + Punishment + Death Dealer Faster stacking = Quicker damage

- Weaker single target damage. Still decent against Carrys but hard to kill Tanks

- Weak against any Spell Armour Dampen Magic

AA Build (Tank Hunter) Top

Combo Sequence: AA > *E + AA(Kill)


*R to interrupt or lockdown
