Co-op Mission Update: Alarak Revamp

us.battle.net on Aug. 17, 2018

Greetings! Our final Commander for this round of reworks is Alarak, Highlord of the Tal’darim. We commonly see Alarak being played with two drastically different playstyles: Ascendant-based strategies, and Mechanical unit-based strategies. Ascendant-based strategies are currently seen as very strong but require a high level of execution. Meanwhile, Mechanical-based strategies are relatively straightforward but fall behind Ascendants in terms of effectiveness. Our primary focus with this revamp is to improve Alarak’s mechanical army and reduce the gap between the two playstyles.

Best Build Order Nova [Easy Expo]

TvX Co-op by hunter 

Nova is a great commander that has a lot of power. Her hero is very powerful and can solo entire ground waves and can deal great damage to enemy encampments. My favorite units are: Ravens, Goliaths, Tanks, Ghosts, Marines, and Liberators. Ravens Tanks and Liberators to get the most DPS out of them think about may different control groups to do that.

Protoss

Best Build Order Alarak [Easy Expo]

PvX Co-op by hunter 

Alarak has some of the most powerful units in the game, Ascendants. When fully powered up they can clear entire attack waves with ease. Just spam orb and watch the enemy disapear. This combined with a really powerful Hero and you can take on anything. The hardest part about Alarak is his mobility, his entire army is very slow.
