Using HOTS Logs to improve your gameplay
Your one-stop shop for builds and strategy,
is looking better than ever heading into the release of Alterac Pass. This three-lane map has objectives that your team will need to act on both offensively and defensively, as well as a much more buffed boss fight in the form of Generals Vanndar Stormpike and Drek'thar. As with any maps, it's important to know that certain talent choices can make or break a win on a new battleground. That’s where HOTS Logs comes in!
With HOTS Logs, you’re able to preview everything from statistical talent breakdowns to matchups and wins by Battleground. The first and most important feature to familiarize yourself with is the Popular Talent Builds. Viewable as either a table or a carousel, the Popular Talent Builds give you a glimpse into which Talents are being chosen together most frequently and to what degree of success. If there’s a talent you’re itching to try, check out the Builds to see if it aligns with any other popular talents to maximize your effectiveness in Alterac Pass.
Not every Hero is viable in Alterac Pass. Synergy is important, but fear not - HOTS Logs has you covered. The “Wins by Map” tab will show you your heroes of choice's percentage win chance on every Battleground in the game including Alterac Pass upon release.
Gain early insight into Alterac Pass quirks with an analytical approach using HOTS Logs. Through the community’s joint efforts and replay uploads, HOTS Logs will be live with Alterac Pass shortly after her release into the Nexus.
Alterac Pass and Echoes of Alterac Guide for Beginners
As this is a WoW-centric event in Heroes of the Storm, we have compiled some beginner tips for WoW players looking to jump into Heroes of the Storm for the first time!
New Map: Alterac Pass
Alterac Pass Overview
A new realm has come to the Nexus, and with it, untapped power and a bitter feud for control. Realm lords, factions and Heroes will stop at nothing to claim victory in the mountains of Alterac.
Alterac Pass is a large three-lane Battleground that hosts the familiar warcries of long-time rivals, the Horde and the Alliance, as they clash in the Nexus. Unlike traditional Battlegrounds, Alterac Pass does not feature a structural core outside the Hall of Storms, but in its place, stand the respective faction leaders for each side, General Vanndar Stormpike for the Alliance, and General Drek'thar of the Frostwolf Clan for the Horde.
Alterac Pass is a standard three-lane map, with 1 Fort and 1 Keep every lane. The most striking difference between Alterac Pass and other Heroes of the Storm maps is that, instead of having a structural Core, you instead have Generals Vanndar Stormpike and Drek'thar standing in place. Also unlike other maps, the Generals are vulnerable from the start of the game (you normally need to expose the Core by destroying one of the adjacent Keeps inside the enemy's Hall of Storms). However, Generals are empowered by the Keeps - Each Keep alive gives them 20 Armor, as well as increasing their damage done.
Disengaging from combat with any of the Generals will make them Evade, resetting them to their original position, where they slowly start regaining health. You will need to engage and defeat them all in one go, if you don't want to risk a wipe with the Generals returning to full health.
To help with approaching the enemy Hall of Storms and their General, you can recruit Cavalry units. Every couple minutes, two camps containing prisoners for each side will spawn. By taking control of the enemy camp and guarding it, while preventing the enemy team from taking your camps, you will spawn cavalry units in every lane of the map. Cavalry units will move towards the enemy's Hall of Storms and grant increased damage and movement speed to all Allied Heroes or units within their range.
Securing those camps and escorting your Cavalry Units is key to winning at Alterac Pass.

For the Alliance!
Spirit Healer Auriel
Spirit Healers are impartial arbiters of life and death and it takes a considerable injustice for one to choose a side and go to war. Auriel's presence has granted a new hope to the Alliance.
After years of combat with the Frostwolves, Vanndar was among the first warriors Varian contacted as he rallied the Alliance. His invaluable experience may prove key to finally securing the pass from the Horde.
Grand Marshal Varian
Rallied by the Lady of Thorns call, Grand Mashal Varian Wrynn left Stormwind with his father's blessing and the Stormwind army in tow. The Alliance would not let Alterac fall before to the Raven Lord's machinations.
While Valeera's allegiances may be her own, her friendship with Varian meant she couldn't allow him to go to war alone. If he was going to fight the Horde, than so she would be his blade in the dark.
For the Horde!
The mischievous Goblin Sappers are known throughout the Horde for their incredible aptitude for destruction. Despite their short life expectancy, some sappers like Jammi Foxxleson even became goblin engineers
The great Raven spirit had been right... The Alliance marched into Alterac with new allies and ready for war. While the spirit's strange power could aid him, to fight an army he would need allies.
High Warlord Garrosh
After decades of dutiful service to his warchief Thrall, Garrosh was appointed High Warlord and given a mission of vital importance to his mentor and friend: secure Alterac for the Horde once and for all.
It is said that to face a Warsong Commander in battle is to experience the might of the Horde first-hand. Despite years of constant warfare, Jo'Hanna still charges into battle with a warcry that shakes the heavens.
Also starting today, you will also be able to buy two armored, Warcraft-themed skins! Based off the
Carnero de batalla Pico Tormenta
Cuerno del aullador Lobo Gélido
, those mounts are high-quality versions with several different tints. These mounts are not connected to the Horde/Alliance questline for Echoes of Alterac, so you can purchase those skins regardless of what side you chose to defend!
