Meta Alarak (NP Builds)
There are usually tons of variants that are Meta, these are the meta builds I recommend for competitive and storm league. With the variations I recommend depending on your skill and ranks.
For Alarak, W build is still insane utility, consistent value. Is heavily punished by death, but is rather safe. Can build up sadism extremely fast against most teams. Use W Q E combos post 4 to get sadism, post 7 stay with your team and combo anyone out of position, use your ult to avoid major CC or burst damage. When you get 20 if you have over 100 sadism you can 100-0 most people on their team. If you are not good at quickly applying rite to the target you are about to burst, just leave it on the tank and farm qs for free sadism. Playstyle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_yRVsGDSXg
NotParadox here, I have coached players from Bronze to Grandmaster, I have officially done over 800 coaching sessions (as of making this). I have coached teams in every division of play include professional teams. I was also an analyst for teams throughout HGC. I run the largest educational youtube channel for HotS. And have casted professional games of Heroes of the Storm. I am doing a challenge to make a guide for every hero in the game to show builds that are not only viable, but also can crush it in the meta.
