Introduction Top

Hello, my name is Styr, I have been playing Heroes of the Storm since I the alpha version. My main roles are Assassin and Specialist. I have been playing this hero since him come out in the closed beta and I found him really fun to play. Tried so many builds with him now. But I think the best of them is the Windfury based one, is one I have been using currently.

This guide is updated to the Lt. Morales patch.

PROS
- Insane basic sustained damage
- Good mobility with Windfury
- Have roots [W] and aoe stun [R] if you pick the Sundering heroic skill.
- High sustain with his passive.
- High burst damage, can kill fast.
- Can take mercenary camps easy

CONS
- Can be weak on early levels.
- Can have mana problems if you dont get Mana Tide
- Feral Spirit has only 1 second root and is single target.
- Vulnerable to heavy CC.

Abilities Top

Thrall's combat trait is Frostwolf Resilience. Thrall can get a lot of sustain from this since you gain a stack for every hit of your spells, and Thrall's spells can hit multiple targets.
His first ability [Q] is Chain Lightning. This ability deal damage to an enemy, and 50% of damage to 2 nearby enemies.
His second ability [W] is Feral Spirit. Thrall sends a wolf that damage every enemy in its path. When the wolf hits a hero, it stops and roots for 1 second.
Thrall's third ability [E] is Windfury. This increase your movement speed by 25% for 4 seconds and make your next 3 attacks occur 100% faster.
His first heroic ability [R] is Sundering. This ability makes Thrall to sunder the earth in a long line, dealing gamage and stuning enemies for 1.5 seconds.
His second heroic ability [R] is Earthquake. Thrall summons an earthquake that periodically slows enemies in the area by 70% for 10 seconds.

Talents Top

Tier 1 (Level 1)
Rolling Thunder is the best talent here, since the last patch move Wind Shear to level 7, and have increased the mana cost of the skills.

Tier 2 (Level 4)
I think Envenom is a the best talent in this tier too if you are searching for more burst damage.
However, Mana Tide is another good options on this tier, because you will have less mana problems, but it got nerfed in the last patch.

Tier 3 (Level 7)
I think Wind Shear is the best for this build because is based on the Windfury skill, so less cooldown is better.

Tier 4 (Level 10)
I like Sundering as heroic skill because if give a lot of area damage and stun.
Earthquake is a nice option if your team lack cc.

Tier 5 (Level 13)
Grace Of Air will make you really hard to kil since you gaint a lot of sustain with your Windfury ability now.

Tier 6 (Level 16)
I prefered Tempest Fury over the other ones because you have more sustained damage, if you need more burst and heal Blood for Blood is a really nice one too.

Tier 7 (Level 20)
I prefered Bolt of the Storm because is the most versalite opcion, this can be used as a offensive or deffensive talent. For engaging or for escaping.
Nexus Blades is a great option too because it will give you a lot of damage, since you deal 20% more damage.
