Battleground Tips Edit

  • Stitches’ “Hook” [Q] ability provides an opportunity to disrupt enemies from securing objectives. For example, use Hook to pull opponents away from capturing the Shrine on Dragon Shire.
  • Use “Devour” [E] to keep your Health pool at a safe level.
  • If the opposing team has multiple melee heroes, consider taking “Putrid Bile” [R] to help slow them down for your team’s assassin to pick them off.

Development Edit

Stitches SC2 DevRend1

Stitches's good (left) and evil (right) forms in the original build

  • Stitches was conceived within the first two years of the game's development.[5]
  • Stitches was present in the original Blizzard DotA mod. In his backstory in this version, he was summoned from the depths of Azeroth and modified with cybernetics by an unknown necromancer. However, he didn't know how to use most of them, so fell back on a more familiar ability: vomit.[6] In the 2010 build, he was known simply as "Abomination."[7]
  • In this early build, he had a "good" and "evil" version, as did each character in the game. As a "good" hero, he was outfitted with CMC armor, whilst he was clad in ultralisk parts as an "evil" character.[8] He was under consideration to be given an appearance that bore resemblance to the Butcher.[9]
  • A tough hero, Stiches gained benefit from strength items in this build.[6] He was similar to DotA's Pudge.[10] He had the following stats:
    • Life: 5+
    • Attack: 1+
    • Abilities: 2+
    • Speed: 2+
  • And the following abilities:
    • Devour
    • Disease Cloud
    • Putrid Bile
    • Slam
    • Unholy Carapace[6]
  • In previous builds, Stitches' hook could grab an enemy and pull them to him. If the enemy moved out of the way, the hook could miss. Stitches could even grab an enemy he wasn't aiming at.[11]
  • Stitches was chosen for inclusion by the game's art team. Due to his physique, he would be able to stand out.[12]
  • Stitches had a skin that was Diablo-themed, but this was rethought as it was too similar to The Butcher.[13]
