Deckard Cain build guide
“Lol, look at this old man, stuck in a cage! What, rescue? Sure, lemme just kill the rest of the demons around.” This is how my thoughts were like when I first met Deckard Cain, back in Diablo II. (Yeah, Diablo II was the first I’ve played) However, he is around more than some other characters from Blizzard. With all respect, here’s Deckard Cain build guide.
I’d like to believe that my lamentation about lack of Warriors and Supports in Heroes of the Storm is the reason why Deckard is introduced, but I realize that it didn’t. Nonetheless, we have brand new Support with an interesting set of skills which will undoubtedly bring more choice to this role.
“Stay awhile and listen.” (you didn’t think that I’ll list some other quote, did you?)Deckard Cain, the Last Horadrim
- Potent single-target healing abilities
- Powerful AoE crowd-control via Scroll of Sealing
- Different talent choices which can fit a lot of situations
- Not effective in dealing with burst damage
- Wave clearing is not exactly his field of work
- Assassin can bring him down rather quickly
So, if you wish to be the very best (Yes, just like in that Pokémon song), you will need advice. This is tips and tricks part of this Deckard Cain build guide.
- Deckard might be old, and a bit wobbly, but still, he can be a lifesaver. Unique mechanics used for his Healing Potion makes him able to set up healing in advance. Due to his passive, Deckard works best in the crowd, so if it is possible, play him with a friend. It will help you coordinate better.
- Horadric Cube is one of your main tools in disabling enemies, and since it has a slight delay until reaches its target, always aim a bit in advance, so the enemy cannot escape it easily. Too improve the results, toss in Scroll of Sealing. Since the enemy is slowed, it will make hitting with the latter easier.
- Another great combo is Lorenado + Scroll of Sealing. The first one will push the enemies to where you need it.
- Stay Awhile and Listen is best used for isolated targets or a pair of heroes. If you intend to use it in the middle of a fight, always notify your allies, so that sleeping effect is used to its maximum.
- When it comes to counters, heroes with powerful, engaging tools can be really threatening, especially if Scroll of Sealing is on cooldown. Thus, Kerrigan, Diablo (ironic, I know) or Alarak can cause trouble. Their combos of fast approach and disables can be fatal.
