    So what's your favorite hero? Choose based upon personal likes and/or effectiveness. I'll give mine once I make up my mind.

    Effectiveness:

    Mountain King
    - the storm bolt thingy rapes heroes
    - he does a funky war shout when activating Avatar (which is also kickass)

    Funnyness:

    Blademaster
    - Take-ah the pebble from-ah my hand grasshoppah!

    Best level 6 skill:

    Starfall
    - but I didn't say Priestess for effectiveness because her scouting owl and searing arrows are both mediocre; the aura is pretty nice, but she's not the best overall

    I like picking heroes that people do not generally use that much. (As my favorites.) I guess I just like be different. No more Apple brainwashing!! Please... No more!!

    Favorite: Lich

    Frost Nova damages enemies in an area of effect and slows them down, frost armor helps keep your ally heroes alive, dark ritual keeps your mana flowing and death and decay ownz buildings. Besides, I think he looks kinda cool floating with no legs, barely anyone uses him and I like the challenge of using a hero with so little hit points. (Death Knight Death Coil helps.)

    Runner up: Keeper of the Groove... uh Grove.

    Entangle take enemies out of the action, thorns increases your damage done to enemy melee units, Treants are good when creeping (too bad they don't improve with levels) and tranquility keeps all your men alive. (Blizzard practically does no significant damage when it's on.)

    Effectiveness: Dread Lord

    The vampiric aura is helpful, Infernal is good back up especially with the chaos damage and carrion swarm does loads of damage. Sleep is excellent for stopping moves like starfall, blizzard, death and decay and earthquake or just for temporarily putting someone out of action.

    Runner up: Archmage

    Water elementals are great for creeping and get really powerful, Brilliance aura is excellent, Blizzard ownz and mass teleport can be devestating. Especially when combined with an invincible Paladin.

    Best move: Starfall

    Auto targeting, 50 damage /per star and long lasting. Amazing move.


    I like him too. Mostly because I admire the Paladin thing of honor, justice and service of others in the name of God. A strong dedication to helping others is very noble.

    The first time you buy a hero they always only take 5 food. The Blademaster is pretty good though.

    Yes. Especially bladestorm. The first time I saw that move I lost 15-20 ghouls. (Undead mission vs Orcs & Dragons.)

    Ooo, ya, I remember that mission. The one where you gotta kill the false demon worshipping orcs :D. The move is murder if you don't micro.

    :( Nobody like the Demon Hunter anymore? Mana burn is a total Hero killer, Immolation IMO rapes all the melee units and Evasion keeps you alive. Ya I do have to admit the Ultimate isn't all that good but it's still useful. Keeper of the Groove is nice, but DH just looks so much cooler :D. BTW.....why did they make it death knight? Shouldn't it be a Blackguard for it to be the opposite of the Paladin?

    He kept being mean to us. Saying things like "You dare speak to me?" Nobody likes a killjoy. :p

    Edit: DH is the most popular hero page on the official guide:

    Mountain King is my favorite. All of his skills are fun to use.

    But, Dreadlord and Death Knight (I think those are the 2) their 2 Auras at level 3 make them almost unstoppable together.

    i never play demon hunter. i always play gladiator games and it seems like everyone always has a necklace of spell immunity, so i can't use mana burn on them. immolition doesn't make much of a difference, evade is ok, the metamorph thing is ok, but not that good.
