The Smart Buy

With the recent release of Felicia to the Wrath of Heroes store, I have been very tempted to purchase her.  I found her to be very fun in previous beta tests, and it would be a change of pace from Ilanya.  I have not yet pulled the trigger, and I'm not sure I should.

While she is fun to play, she may not be the best choice.  That may actually be the Marauder, Volrik.  He brings so much to the table, especially when you consider Glowgob's importance on the battlefield.

Heal Debuff.  Blocking all of a Shaman's healing will effectively kill him with a little coordination.

Pull.  Ah, Terrible Embrace.... you have plagued me in WAR and now in WoH.  Once Volrik is purchased, you can upgrade this to 100ft.

Root.  Volrik also has a ranged root which is very handy for stopping things from running away... or staying with their group.

Lord of Change.  If Volrik gets 20 assists during a single life, he can tranform into the Lord of Change.  This is pretty awesome to see, but you don't want to be near him when he does it.

Volrik just brings so many tools to the table, the he is almost a must have in your stable of heroes.  Next time he goes on sale, I may have to make the buy.
