Threat Hero Notes
1
Abathur If you manage to find this guy. He won't be much trouble to kill. He'll probably flop his arms around a little bit.
1
Li Li Most Lili's are healers. IF you happen to find her alone she won't be much of a challenge for you!
1
Malfurion Same counts for Malfurion as I said with Lili. He has 0 escapes and he isn't likely to use his ult to escape from you.
1
Tyrande You have time to dodge her E when she casts it on you. Tyrande is also fairly squishy but less squishy then other supports. If she doesn't have her cloak R shes an easy kill.
2
Jaina Avoid her skillshots and she should be dead in a couple of seconds.
3
Azmodan Azmodan is fairly easy as you outrange him and you can easily dodge his aoe
3
Rehgar
3
Thrall
4
Gazlowe Gazlowe should be fairly easy if he doesn't have any turrets up near him. So only engage him if he doesn't have much turrets up because they hurt. You dodge pretty much every skillshot of him with your E or trait so you should be able to take him down fast enough.

Anub'arak My advice is not to solo this guy. His spikes hurt and if he comes close, he's gonna hurt.

Brightwing Brightwing himzelf wouldn't be much of a problem if he wouldnt Polymorph you. His trait is really OP atm and his shield makes for a perfect escape. Try to catch him if you can.

Hello guys, and welcome to my guide for Falstad. I've been recently playing Falstad alot and noticed there aren't much upvoted guides for this Hero. So I decided to share how I play with Falstad. I've added multiple builds wich fits for various situations and maps. This guide it ment for players who are looking for new builds and ofcourse people who are just started playing Falstad.

My guide and builds are not law ofcourse!



The headers are made by myself and I would rather not have people stealing it without my permission. Thanks!

THIS GUIDE IS STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS. Come back later for the full guide!

My name is Sabine, I am a 21 year old girl gamer who very much enjoys HotS at this moment. You can currently find me on the european server of HotS named Queen. I play games like LoL and WoW. Not much left of playing WoW and LoL since I'm totally addicted to HotS atm. I'm currently rank 32 and climbing the rank ladders. I usually don't play alone, as I love to play games with my friends.

I started playing Falstad because I love ranged Asassins, I saw people playing with him and he looked like alot of fun to play with. My Falstad is currently level 9 And I'm working towards level 10 to buy his Master skin. The only downpoint about Falstad is that his only skin looks alot like his default skin, only with a little bit of armor. I have it. Just to have it but meh, I rather have the Master skin.

Falstad's Kit :




or


Traits :




Falstad is a very mobile assassin with a little bit more difficult kit then most ranged assassins. His damage with a full damage build is perfect, and the devensive builds are really team savers, and mostly self-savers.
The only downside for the damage build for some people is that he requires precision. You really need to focus on your abilities and when to time them. If you use the talent it makes up alot of damage and cc you have in teamfights when the enemy team is close to eachother. As Assasins dont usually fight alone, Falstad can handle most 1v1's. His W is perfect for it and his E has a good follow-up, as it grants a small shield shield aswell. Your E( ) can save you from death but also gives you a little bit more sustain in teamfights.

Falstad also doesn't need a mount. You actually fly on a hippogryph(awesome right?!). Your trait( ) makes you almost as fast as every other hero on a mount. Also Falstad is mobile in his own way. You can press Z( ) on a location you want to go and he actually flies to the location. If your location isn't near enough Falstad has to walk to it first, so keep an eye on him while you want to fly to an other location on the map ; enemies are always looking for people who don't pay attention to thier own hero.

So to the people who are planning to get started on Falstad, if you're looking for a Hero that is somewhat more of a challenge then other assassins ; Falstad might be the Hero for you!

As you might have seen I've posted 4 diffrent builds for Falstad. These are the ways I play Falstad and depending on the enemy team comp, I base my talents. The cool thing is that Falstad can pretty much adapt to every situation if you play him right. But you need the right talents for it.






The ability damage build is the build I enjoy the most, personally. It diffrent then most others that play Falstad. And its defenitely worth a try. This build is mostly based on your abilities, so it doesn't give extra attack damage. You can keep your distance with this build, which is basicly playing it safe. But its playing safe with a ****load of damage.





Power Throw increases the range of your Q. Why I chose this talent above other starter talents is because the range makes you deal damage from far away. I presonally don't like to get really close to enemies unless I know I can get a kill out of it. With Power throw you can scout bushes better and bounce it over walls. As the other level 1 abilities don't add much more except I rather pick because it just adds a bit more to Felstad's later talents. As I dont really much of normal hits while I spam my talents. is still a good pick for his damage build if you do alot more normal attacks then I do. Seasoned Marksman also really combines well with your W. But still, because of the extra the range I'd still rather pick Power Throw over Seasoned Marksman in this type of build.




For the pure Damage build I mostly take Charged up. Combined with This talent can really start up doing some nice extra damage. Why would you chose Charged Up over Gathering Power? Gathering power is a rather good pick for a quick and flawless match. But if the enemy team is stronger or equally strong, you have to keep in mind that this talent will reset to 5% on each death. The percentage is still fairly high of the ability power you'll get, but with Charged up you're working to a late game combo. Unless you don't want higher late game damage, have a better team comp or your team is already winning you should go ahead and pick




needs a little bit more effort and precision when you use Q. You have to click it twice on the right location to deal the extra damage. Which can be a pain for people who are just getting started on Falstad. I chose this talent above because its gives more CC to your kit. While secret weapon is focussed on one target, BOOmerand can be casted on multiple targets. Since Falstad is more of a 1v1 Hero, this adds a bit more damage.


Hinterland Blast is your pure damage Heroic ability that requires some precision. Is your finisher in this build. It does require some casting time so make sure you aim it right. As Mighty Gust is really ment for devensive plays and really fits well most maps, I mostly go for . Only use in this build when your team is losing teamfights pre-10 and you're losing objectives.

blabla.




blabla.









Is not something I recommend right away. But comes in handy for people who want to play it really safe. This build does not give any ectra damage, so feel free to play around with it a little bit. This is the perfect build for those who are not sure about the way they play Falstad and a perfect beginner build to try out Falstad.

Is a good talent in various ways. But some people are stuggeling when to time it right without that affecting your team in a negative way. Lets make this clear fast. Mighty gust doest NOT deal alot of damage and only pushes your enemies away. So its more of an supportive talent then a assassin/damage talent.


As we just came out of a team fight you see that my team is pretty low on health. The enemy team comes close and my team is getting the treasure for the Doubloons. As I see that my team is not ready to fight off without getting killed, I'm preparing to use to help me and my team out in this situation.
You see that while I use Mighty gust the enemy team is stunned so they can't get out.

Even after Mighty gust ends the enemy team is still stunned for a short period of time which gives us a little more time to get the Doubloons.
