Defenders 043: Slardar

January 24, 2012


I thought it would never happen, but Slardar finally got the vote.  This one goes out to Gopher54.

This is another one of my go-to heroes.  He really brings a lot to the team if played right.  An amazing stun, armor debuff + vision, mobility, viscious damage…  I have a hard time thinking of a team that Slardar would be a bad choice against.  And if the enemies grab Riki, BH, or any other invis hero, he’s basically an insta-pick.  Honestly, he has it all.

Which doesn’t mean I think he’s the strongest hero in the game or anything, but his skill-set is really robust.  I feel Slar is sort of like a jack of all trades, but master of none.  He can easily fill the role of ganker, initiator, even carry… sometimes all three at the same time.  But there are lots of heroes that do any one of those things better than he does.

Alright.  Enough gushing (works better as a Tidehunter pun). Who do you think is the most versatile or well-rounded hero in the game?

    I think the most well rounded hero is either earth shaker as a strength hero and Invoker for intelligence

    I think Windrunner is pretty close in versatility.

    windrunner is definitely up there. I’d have to say QoP and Storm Spirit are pretty versatile heroes. Also Beastmaster.
