Threat Hero Notes
1
Illidan Illidan has high damage output but no CC and because of this you can just soak up all his damage with Fortifying Brew then hit him with a combo then take another drink. While he has good sustain so you wont do much to him either he is not much of a danger as far as killing you.

Nova Nova just like Illidan has good damage output but no CC you can tank here heroic abilities really well with this build.

The Idea behind the build Top

Idea behind this build is simple, get drunk A LOT. Chen's trait fortifying brew makes him ideal for soaking up as much damage as possible.

Early game you are not gonna be super tanky, your shield wont block much. So early game we go for some damage talents. This makes it so we have some damage late game and were not just pure tank. Picking up Bolder Flavor is crucial to this play style of Chen. After lvl 16 when you pick up Bolder Flavor you can take a massive beating without it getting through your shield. On several occasions I have been able to tank an assassins damage for 30 sec to a minute while teammates headed to me to help.

Alternative Talent Picks Top

1.Because hard CC is such a counter to Chen's Fortifying Brew ability Relentless can be picked in place of Enough to share but I personally like Enough to share to help in team fights and save teammates from that last bit of damage that would've done them in.

2.For you last Talent pick Bolt of the storm is an option if you want to be more mobile however I find usually with Flying kick you are mobile enough and I like the extra tankyness from Hardened shield.
