Heroes of the Storm Fenix Build Guide

Fenix is a Ranged Assassin Hero from the Starcraft universe. He has high and stable damage not only from auto-attacks but also from his abilities. He is very mobile, thanks to the movement speed upgrades and his ability to warp for a short distance. In addition, he possesses a permanent energy shield that automatically regenerates as soon as he stops taking damage. These qualities make him indispensable in combat, and also give him the ability to solo in the lane with his regenerating Shield.

Useful Strategies and Tips

Shield Capacitor is a great self-sustain trait. It allows you to quickly (10% of maximum Shield per second) regenerate Shield if you have not taken damage during the last 5 seconds. This allows the Fenix to stay in line with good positioning and the right kite and teamfights.

Plasma Cutter – When used correctly, this skill deals significant damage. It is great for both kite enemies and aggressive offensive. The main thing is to learn how to use it effectively.

Weapon Mode: Repeater Cannon – high rate of fire, but reduced range. This Weapon Mode is well suited for Mercenary camps or situations where opponents cannot switch to you.

Weapon Mode: Phase Bomb. This Weapon Mode allows you to deal damage at a safe distance, making it indispensable when you need to regenerate Shield or avoid an enemy CC.

Warp. This excellent mobility tool will allow you not only to avoid pursuit, but also to quickly move around the map. The main thing to remember is that this skill can be interrupted, so be careful using it near enemies that have CC abilities.

Purification Salvo is ideal for finishing off opponents and deals increased damage to Slowed targets. Therefore, it is imperative to have teams with a good CC set to maximize damage.

Planet Cracker is a channelled beam that deals high damage, but Fenix stays in place and is extremely vulnerable. So it should be used from a safe distance, otherwise, you can get retaliatory damage or spend the cooldown for nothing.

Synergies and Counters

Fenix synergizes with Heroes, who can pull enemies (such as Gazlowe or Johanna) and Heroes, who can trap enemies in place (such as Maiev or E.T.C.).

Fenix is countered by Heroes with good CC abilities (such as Diablo or E.T.C.) and high mobility Heroes, who can easily punish him (such as Tracer or Genji).
