How to draft an Abathur composition
Abathur is an unusual character. You might be confused by him and/or enraged when a team mate ninja picks him in hero league. This guide is here to unravel the mystery. (But sadly can’t prevent yolo Abathurs throwing your games.)
First and foremost, Abathur is a map specific hero. I have a break down below.
— Great maps: 1) Cursed Hollow; and 2) Towers of Doom.
— Okay maps: 1) Sky temple; 2) Hanamura; 3) Warhead Junction; and 4) Garden of Terror (ban Vikings).
Next, you’ll want to match Abathur with characters that compliment him. I’ve outlined four slots for heroes in your Abathur comp:
- Tank: Muradin > Anub'arak / Varian > Tyrael > ETC.
- Healer: Rehgar > Kharazim / Uther > other healers only if you have double front line.
- Big dps (likely clone target): Greymane, Li-Ming, Jaina, or other big dps heroes can work as well.
- Extra slot: you can fit a lot of stuff in here. Another big dps, Zeratul, another front liner (Arthas/Sonya/Varian/Anub/Artanis), Genji, or Illidan.
And there you have it. That’s all the information you need to draft a meta Abathur comp. Now get out there and out-macro the red team.
“A logical decision.”
