Battleground Tips Edit

  • Anub'arak excels at initiating fights and forcing engagements.
  • Anub'arak is a nimble character, despite his size. He is good at jumping under lines and evading very quickly. He is a significant threat for DPS-type characters such as the Demon Hunter and Nova.
  • Anub'arak is effective against towers as per his beetle ability. The beetles will absorb tower fire, allowing Anub'arak to attack the structures.
  • If specced mainly for scarabs, Anu'arak can become even sturdier, and one of the most durable Heroes in the game. The most important Talents for this are Legion of Beetles and Leeching Scarab. This makes Anub'arak spawns more bugs that will heal him whenever they attack.
  • “Burrowing Charge” [E] can be activated a second time to force Anub’arak to pop up from underground. Use the maneuver to knock up unsuspecting enemies or to chase fleeing opponents.
  • “Web Blast” [R] is fantastic for interrupting important Heroic Abilities. For example, try to Web Blast on a Valla’s “Strafe” or an Illidan using “The Hunt.”
  • “Impale” [Q] is a long ranged knock up. Use it aggressively to delay opponents from grabbing a tribute on Cursed Hollow, or to initiate a team fight. The high amount of hitstun it causes gives the chance for the team to engage with more efficient and eliminate key-opponents while they're stunned. [1]
