Get yourself a man who can do both - or in the case of Varian Wrynn, one that can do all three. The newest addition to Blizzard’s Heroes of the Storm is a veritable swiss army knife capable of playing three roles: a Warrior Hero that can parry attacks, an Assassin that can chase down foes, and a hearty damage dealer capable of assaulting mercenary camps. I've compiled a thorough overview of Varian's strengths and weaknesses, as well as a few tips to help you with cleaving a path of destruction through the Nexus.
