Talents/Abilities Top

Rabid Wolves
Rabid Wolves: Damaging Heroes with Feral Spirit grants 3 stacks of Frostwolf Resilience. I go with this one first because of the 3 stacks towards Frostwolf Resilience . It is very key to remember Thrall is great at team fights and 1v1 fights because of his power to heal during battle. The stacks towards that we get from and later from Grace of Air will work wonders to keeping Thrall alive during battle.

Envenom: Activate to poison an enemy Hero, dealing 180 (+30 per level) damage over 5 seconds. This talent is useful to add to the burst damage. Envenom is part of the combo that I utilize with Thrall. I start with Feral Spirt , followed by Envenom , then WindFury , and while they are trying to run away usually finish them off with Chain Lightning . Combo: W,1,E,Q is key! ON rare occasion I do sometimes roll with Mana Tide to restore mana as well, but very rarely, do I suggest this talent.

Wind Shear
Wind Shear: Reduces the cooldown of Windfury by 4 seconds. This one is pretty self explanatory, Windfury is your main damage output , especially when you get Tempest Fury , so by picking Wind Shear you bring down the cooldown from 12 to 8 seconds. I will take that all day. You can do more damage and heal faster because of Frostwolf Resilience .

Sundering: After a short delay, sunder the earth in a long line. Deals 160 (+22 per level) damage and shoves enemies to the side, stunning them for 1.5 seconds. I prefer this Heroic ability because of its damage and stun value. I especially like Sundering because you can use this ability while enemy Hero is running away, or if enemy team is fighting camps, boss, or simply if you show up late to a team fight, you can catch enemy team off guard and split them up or single out an enemy.

Grace of Air
Grace of Air: Windfury attacks grant twice as many stacks of Frostwolf Resilience. This talent is crucial ,it helps add to Frostwolf Resilience , which heals you much faster during battle.

Tempest Fury
Tempest Fury:The final strike of Windfury hits 3 times for 75% normal damage. This Talent is also crucial to Thrall's Windfury damage output. For this build, you must get this talent for Thrall's DPS.

Nexus Blades
Nexus Blades: Basic attacks deal 20% more damage and slow the target for 1 second. I usually go with this talent at lvl 20. You can add more damage and slow your enemy target. psshh I will take that. I sometimes consider going with Bolt of the Storm , if enemy teams target me often. Bolt of the storm is also useful to escape or quickly get to enemy support/healer.

Conclusion Top

There are other guides for general Thrall use, but this one I believe is all about damage and staying alive.
