    From my experience Arthras is a mediocre hero. He is not as much a punching bag as Muradin and is not the damage/support as Diablo. He has some useful stun and snipe abilities but they lack the effectiveness of other heroes. Overall he is a jack of all trades but ace of none meaning he is pretty vulnerable/ineffective at times. He should definitely partner up as his stuns and AoE only really shine in multi-hero combat (preferably with an assassin or specialist).

    It's curious you would say that, some while ago when I watched "Brawl with the Blues"
    Thrall edition, the guys talked about how Diablo was one of the worst warrior class
    heroes. Admittedly, I guess he's good at crowd control, with his grab and charge ability,
    but I rarely see anyone playing him well individually, mostly when I see someone playing
    him good it's in combination with other heroes, like lining up kills for others.

    They also said that Arthas was one of the best warrior classes, but I can't really say,
    seeing as I haven't played him much. My favourite warrior class is Muradin, I just like
    his mobility parred with his stuns, but generally I don't really like melee heroes.

    My favourite is, and I'm sure this comes as a shock to you all, Li Li :) Mostly because
    she's easy to play, and I feel really good playing a support class hero, helping out my
    team as best I can :p I'm pretty sure I'd like Brightwing too, but I haven't tried her
    much at all, mostly because the voice acting sounds so damned terrible.

    Other than that I also really like Thrall and Anub'Arak, even though I've heard
    Anub'Arak is supposed to be poorly balanced. There's just something about his trait and
    the tunnel/charge ability I find intriguing.

    Whoa, long time no see mate :) I'd definitely add you. But aren't you playing NA?
    I don't think we can play cross-realm :( And I have too many friends in Europe to
    change, like I did with Wc3 back in the days >.>

    I really love the game.

    I normally don't play MOBAs, Don't get me wrong but I prefer the Full RTS game. Building base, my economy, my army. Now, I Played LoL and Smite, DOTA 2 don't got me hooked unlike the previous two.

    Now I got invited to HotS beta and... IT'S AWESOME! first time that I enjoy playing a MOBA and don't getting flamed by my time and the maps, oh god, the MAPS! they're gorgeous!

    Here is my Btag! firelordzx5#2949
    nice to meet ya!

    He is more a hybrid Warrior/Assassin. He lacks the snipe abilities/combos of an assassin but he has the utility of a Warrior. He also can perform great threat against you since he stops you from meleeing gates (he would grab you and kill you with help of fortress). For a Warrior he also deals some pretty good damage which makes him a huge threat against weak heroes. His only let down is his passive which does make him quite durable but that is pretty much it.
    They did buff him a tad since alpha (when I played him a lot). His frost ring thing is effective against trash and gives you good movement damage against the odd hero.

    I hope I am not the only person who thinks that Li Li is out of place. I can only imagine her being in Heroes of the Storm as a joke so you can beat up a female child panda. There should be some form of age limit on contestants in the nexus, not just for human contestants.

    As a character she has good pushing power. She will practically never win most damage but she can still deal a fair amount while also healing for similar amounts. Her main advantage is her difficulty to kill so she can keep pushing and harassing with practically never going to the fountain. As far as support goes she is the weakest damage dealer as all others have a combat spec that packs a punch.

    Anubarak is a Warrior/Specilist hybrid. He can spec in a way to take on any fort with beetles absorbing the damage.

    Thral has insane combos. Although the AI never use them, against humans I imagine you need to be very careful, especially if he has a 1 or 2 level advantage on you.
