Looking for friends to get Graves with?

Postby Melmo » May 31st, 2015, 1:46 am

Hi guys!!!

I'm level 25 in HotS and I am willing to help anyone with the friend-in-party XP bonus! The only catch is I work 3rd shift, so I will usually only be available from 8am-Noon Eastern time. If that works for you, then great! This week (June 16-23) is the last week to take advantage of the huge XP bonus from Blizz to celebrate the launch, so if you want Graves but are procrastinating, it's in your best interest to get on and play right now--every little bit counts! :D

LiLi is my main but I'm decent with a few other heals & dps as well, so I'd be happy to play whatever. I'm (finally) fairly knowledgeable about the maps now, so if you have any questions I will try to answer them. I was clueless at first, level 20 is such a grind :o

My btag is Melmo#1842, please reply in this thread so I know who you are. Thanks!

Melmo, a good WoW friend and I have been grinding out the levels. I'll send you a friend request, see if we can hook up.

You're braver than I am (well, long ago I got spammed with stranger B*tag friend requests), so I won't post my entire B*tag here: it starts with Arlys ... is that enough for you to be able to recognize it as friendly?

Same as others, I am looking to get to 20 for Graves. So far, alone, I am terrible. Lili just isn't my style and Tychus dies way too fast. Anyone looking to join up against AI only(not other people), add me on bnet ligament#1221

Would love to play with some people to get Graves, as I have no idea what I'm doing and have already been called just about every choice name out there. MOBAs are not my thing, but I'm willing to suffer it out for Graves... :(

Even though I'm level 21, I'm still going to play the game so if you want to team up, add my btag. :D

You might check out the following post in another thread about Graves. It has some good tips.

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=14372&start=80#p114685

I tend to like playing the healers anyway but it is a good option. It's usually pretty simple and if you find someone to follow around and heal you usually contribute pretty well. Just look for melee tanky type and follow them around. This weeks healer is Li Li and she's about as KISS as you can get. Her heal will automatically target the lowest health player in range and greys out if no one is damaged in range. I tend to heavily favor passive talents as that just makes life simpler. For Li Li I've typically been going Conjurer's Pursuit, Mending Serpent, The Good Stuff, Jug of 1,000 Cups, Hindering Winds, Serpent Sidekick and Jug of 1,000,000 Cups.

You can also do a verses AI match and check the box to fill in the rest of your team with bots. No chance of getting grouped with a jerk if they are bots =)

Thanks for the advice! I actually just got done reading that thread, and from the info there, have LiLi up in an all AI round to practice with a bit. I think I might try my hand at healing later, at least then, like you said, I can just follow others around and not make *too* much of a fool of myself.

Still game for adding some friends though - I saw the xp math to get to 20 and it's going to be a long grind. <.<

They are adding XP bonus for the launch event. Extra 25% this week, 50% next week and 100% the week after. You also get a free week long stim-pack which is another 100% bonus.

Level 20 isnt as long a grind as you think. At level 10 you get a stimpack that gives you +100% experience. So you will end up with around 60000-80000 xps for a match, then you get that amount again for the stimpack bonus, and then you can get another 50000 on top of that if you play with someone from your friends list. So you can average about 190k a match.

The only problem you might run into, is playing in Practice and Versus AI mode has an experience cap every 24 hours of 2.25 million xps. After you cap out, you have to wait til 24 hours after the first match was applied to the cap. So if you started playing at 6am and capped out later in the day, your cap will start releasing xps at 6am the next day. This cap is not applied to Quick Match or Hero League, but those are Player against Player matches.

You will find playing with 4 other players results in more wins than you playing with 4 AI on your team, as the AI on your team plays like boneheads, while 4 other players might know what they are doing and help you get a win (easier).

Tips:
* Dont die. Run before you die or you give xps to the other team and make their team level faster. If you get low on mana and/or life, use your hearthstone. You will appear back in your base in the shielded area and regen life and mana at a much faster rate.
* Make sure there is at least 1 person on your team in each lane prior to level 10. Your team gains xps when minions die or buildings are destroyed. If no player is nearby you dont gain those xps. So you want to have at least 1 player near those non-stop minion skirmishes that happen midfield early on to "soak" xps for the team.
* Winning the objectives are huge for your team, dont ignore them. Even if you see some of your team there, go help. You could be what tips your scale in your teams favor.
* I have noticed other players are more tolerant (not always) if you let them know ahead of time you are new. You will get nasty people sometimes, but thats in any game. Dont let it get to you.
* When I first started playing, I tended to pick Passive talents as it made the game "easier" for me. But as I learned the game I realized that those passives are alot weaker than the other choices in most cases. I started looking at builds at this website: http://www.heroesnexus.com/heroes and quickly learned which talents were better choices. Something to point out about that site, is most of the builds are for Player vs Player, so they choose the levels 13, 17 and 20 talents based on that. Once you get the hang of the game you will find that those listed builds can be tinkered with and changed to help more in an AI game as the computer reacts in a patterned way.

Good luck :)

I'm just starting out on Heroes and honestly, i'm only doing this for the pet. And also I'm not a big fan of any type of pvp. If anyone is interested in leveling up in a non-drama free environment. please add me: dangit#1677.

Thanks!

Anyone that wants help can feel free to add me: BattleTag#11101
I am currently playing in Co-Op (vs. AI) though.

My main is Nova, but she is bad at carrying games.
My 2nd best hero is Abathur, with whom I can carry games experience-wise.
My 3rd best would be Sonya. Her life-steal can sustain her for a long period of time.
I plan on buying Nazeebo once I have enough gold. With him, I can even solo the bosses.
