Talents That Matter

Patch 7.00 changed the landscape of hero builds with the introduction of talent trees. Replacing the attribute bonus upgrade, players now have free upgrades at levels 10, 15, 20, and 25. While the meta for talents is still being figured out, many players are gravitating towards choices that result in lower win rates. Some talents are just better than others.

Lone Druid hasn’t been part of the meta for the longest time now. All of this may change with a new build and approach to the hero.

7.xx Pub Tier List

It has been a month since the release of 7.00, and despite some changes introduced in 7.01, it is time for a pub tier list.

We have already touched on the subject of how the new talent system, while being more or less a linear upgrade for the majority of heroes, can also open up completely new playstyles for others. Ember Spirit’s magic damage build is among the most popular new, meta strategies, but he is not alone.
