Our ever popular Heroes of the Storm Tier List  ranks each Hero in a Tier that we consider to be "the best" and while we have descriptions next to each detailing why they're there, its detail is intentionally limited: we want you to be able to quickly view the list and see where Heroes are placed. This article will, upon every change to our Tier List, reflect the best 5 warriors in Heroes of the Storm.

The Lich King is pretty amazing after his recent rework. Not only is his level of crowd control amazing, but he can also take a beating and deal significant damage. With the right talent choices, he can constantly secure kills thanks to his Howling Blast, while sustaining himself thanks to Death Coil. If he can get someone trapped with Frozen Tempest, he'll happily go toe-to-toe with any hero and come out on top, with barely a scratch. Finally, Army of the Dead provides a considerable amount of sustain while his Trait offers a reliable burst of damage and mana return. Overall, Arthas is an amazing solo Warrior and fits in perfectly with duo compositions. 


Still one of the few Warriors that can reliably dive the back line, Anub'arak works well in just about any double Warrior composition. His Burrow Charge, combined with Hardened Carapace, ensures he can disrupt and survive with ease. Cocoon still proves invaluable at shutting down a high value target, and against the likes of Tracer or Genji, is incredibly strong. 


Blaze is without doubt one of the strongest Warriors in Heroes of the Storm. His kit is filled to the brim with utility and diversity. He's exceptional at solo laning, his damage is high, he has bags of self-sustain if he lands his Oil Spill and his Trait is fantastic. While he lacks the mobility of Sonya or the hard crowd control of Arthas, he makes up for this with Jer Propulsion and the slow Oil Spill provides. His Bunker Drop is exceptional, while his ability to zone the enemy team - for a Warrior - is unrivalled. 


With amazing mobility and a double-dose of crowd control, E.T.C still proves to be a very reliable and powerful off-tank. His self-sustain is solid, Mosh Pit remains a game-changer, and Powerslide can get him out of most sticky situations. Although he can be focused easily without his abilities, in the right hands E.T.C proves difficult to bring down and a Hero that can disrupt the enemy team with ease.


Sonya has been up and down our tier list over the last year. Although she's still somewhat slow (and predictable), her stun remains viable and both her Heroics are effective. What makes her so strong howeve, especially after her rework, is the fact her sustain is unrivalled. Her Whirlwind provides enormous amounts of health return and allows her to dive deep and still make it out alive. She isn't great as a solo Warrior, but as off-tank she's fantastic. Capable of quickly taking camps, soloing bosses and farming lanes, Sonya is also exceptional at taking on any other hero 1 on 1.
