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 DPS build of Butcher.


Good CCs (Slow, Stun)
Can easy chase for enemy Heroes
Nice Heal


Not that good Mobility
Long Cooldowns
Mana Problems

Basic Abilities

Q Hamstring
Deal 40 (+10 per level) damage and slow enemies by 49.92% fading over 2 seconds. Your next Basic Attack will strike immediately.

W Butcher's Brand
Deal 30 (+2.5 per level) damage to an enemy and cause your Basic Attacks against them to heal you for 75% of the damage done for 5 seconds. Healing doubled versus Heroes.

E Ruthless Onslaught

Heroic Abilities (R)

Furnace Blast
After a 3 second delay, fire explodes around you dealing 300 (+35 per level) damage to enemies.

Can be cast while using Ruthless Onslaught.

Lamb for the Slaughter

Talents Overview Top


Tier 1
Best choice is Vitctuals which will increase your survivability immense. If you have no or bad support in your team then this Talent is a must-have.

Another good choice is Invigoration with it you gain half of the Mana back and the Cooldown is reduced by 1 second. This is good for us because we can do more damage.

Tier 2
Envenom offers you extra damage and burst you need to kill someone and it is usually a great counter to stealth heroes.

Alternative: Cheap Shot

Tier 3
More Fresh Meat = More Damage, it also perfectly combine with the Tier 6 Talent Blood Frenzy

Tier 4 / Ultimate
Lamb for the Slaughter

You chain an enemy Hero preventing him for 4 seconds to chase you or to escape. In my opinion a really nice Talent.

Furnrae Blast

Tier 5
Burning Rage This Talent is constantly doing damage to your enemys. Especially in team fights this is really useful.

Alternative: Crave Flesh

Tier 6
Blood Frenzy 35% Attack Speed, this is insane

Tier 7
Bolt of the Storm When you play against a really hard team matchup which is always focusing you, then this Talent is a good choice because it is an excellent escape.

Nexus Blade With this talent you clearly win every 1v1 when you have stored 35 fresh meat.

I will update this guide as fast as I can.
