eSports Guide: Cloud9 DunkTrain – Tychus talent build
DunkTrain’s build is pure melt-face DPS, but requires certain conditions to be met. At level 7, he picks Sizzlin’ Attacks which increases damage for 5 sec at the cost of 5 Mana each attack. Early game, this is great to push lanes and reach level 10 for the prized hero talent. However, it might leave Tychus out of mana quickly. If you have a Malfurion in your team, ask him to stick around and to innervate you whenever his cooldown is over.
Relentless will help you shake off Malfurion’s entanglement, Sylvanas’ silence, Muradin/Uther’s stuns, and more. Basically reduces your chance for all those by 50%.
Executioner on the other hand will make Tychus deal 40% more damage on enemy players affected by stun, slow, or root. This one is perfect mid-to-end-game; but you must meet the requirement for the damage burst. Technically, Minigun should count as Basic Attacks. Otherwise, get close with Run and Gun to trigger that 40% Basic damage increase. Stick with any friendly player that can accommodate those stun-slow-root requirements: Malfurion, Muradin, Leoric, Thrall, Butcher, Arthas, ETC, Tyrael, Tyrande, Sylvanas, Uther, and Sgt. Hammer. Jaina and Johanna are pretty good slowing enemy players down, too.
Watching some of DuncanTrain’s videos, this is the Tychus talent build he plays in some of his livestreams.
