Community Roundup – 5 Top Pro and Grand Master Hero guides

Heroes Jason “Renofox” Renau

With all the changes coming to the Nexus lately, it’s a perfect time to dust off some of our favorite heroes with some guides from our community’s best Pro and Grand Master players.

 

Fan’s Mana Addict Kael’thas guide

GFE’s Fan knows his heroes.  And while the double tank meta slowly gives way to more damage and ultimate centered team compositions, revisiting Kael’thas makes sense.

Fan goes into great detail on how most of the community is wrong to pick Convection at Level 1. The greatest thing about Fan’s guides is how he goes into the WHY behind his decisions. Watch, learn, profit. The talent summary can be found here.

Fan’s Gul’dan KRQ-Build guide

While Gul’dan’s Corruption build is popular, one of the best players in North America models his Gul’dan play off of Korea’s Lockdown of team Tempest. The talent summary can be found here.

By level 16 Gul’dan starts hitting like a truck on a 1.5 second cooldown. -Fan

McIntyre’s meta Anub’arak

With all the mages making their way into the meta, B-Step’s McIntyre does a great job of exploring the rise of Anub’arak. Now with spell shielded beetles and more options than ever, Anub is having a great time shutting down mages with the likes of Arthas. A talent summary can be found here, but McIntyre lays out key deviations depending on what you’re up against.
