Greymane Brings The Curse To Heroes of The Storm
Genn Greymane isn’t only the King of Gilneas, but he is also the Lord of the Worgen, a cursed race found in the Kingdoms of the East.
Today, Blizzard Entertainment announced the arrival of Greymane in Heroes of the Storm, the arrival of a gruesome assassin capable of shapeshifting from Human to Worgen form as he roams the maps. While in Human form, Greymane attacks in ranged, using his trusted weapon, but when transformed in Worgen form, he pounces to his enemies and attacks up close (melee).
PASSIVE: CURSE OF THE WORGEN
Human form attacks are ranged. Worgen form attacks are melee, but deal 40% more damage than in Human form.
Q: GILNEAN COCKTAIL / RAZOR SWIPE
Human (Gilnean Cocktail) – Throws a flask that damages the first enemy hit with 152 (72 + 4% per level) U and than explodes, dealing 454 (216 + 4% per level) increased damages to enemy targets behind.
Worgen (Razor Swipe) – Deals swipe damage for 349 (166 + 4% per level) in an area in front of Greymane.
W: INNER BEAST
Allows Greymane, in both forms, to gain 50% attack speed during 3 seconds. This ability can be activated in Worgen and Human form. Basic Attacks are refreshed during the 3 second duration.
E: DISENGAGE / DARKFIGHT
Human (Disengage) – When in Worgen form, Greymane will roll away from the enemy and shapeshift into his Human form.
Worgen (Darkfight) – When in Human form, Greymane will turn into a Worgen and leap towards an enemy. The leap deals 193 (92 + 4% per level) damage to the target.
R: GO FOR THE THROAT / MARKED FOR THE KILL LEAP / MARKED FOR THE KILL
Human (Go for the Throat) – Transform into a Worgen and leap at a target enemy, dealing three slashes for a total of 822 (390 + 4% per level) damage. If the enemy dies from this ability, Greymane can cast it a second time for free (within 10 seconds).
Human (Marked for the Kill Leap) – Shapeshift into Worgen form and leap to the target, dealing 97 (46 + 4% per level) damage. This ability has a 0.5 seconds cooldown.
Worgen (Marked for the Kill) – Transform into a Human and shoot a long ranged shot. The first enemy hit will be dealt 149 (71 + 4% per level) damage and will become Vulnerable for 5 seconds; all of they will take 25% more damage from all sources. Additionally, re-activating ‘R’ will allow you to leap to them and shapeshift into Worgen form.
Genn Greymane is a champion that requires you to master both melee and ranged combat. Although most of the damage dealt comes from the Worgen form, it is important to use the Human form properly, especially to keep your distance since Greymane lacks self sustain.
