The New Chromie Era?
Our favorite time-dragon gnome powerhouse received some bufferinos and I couldn't be happier about it. For those of you who know me, there are very few heroes that I like to play more (outside of the support/healer role) than Chromie, so I'm always excited to see her made more relevant in the meta with some number changes from the Blizz Dev crew.
That being said, although yesterday's buffs are definitely helpful, the changes don't actually alter my thinking too much on how to play the sand wizard.
Here's a quick breakdown of her changes:
Don't get me wrong, there are some good things happening here and I am thrilled to see her power-levels increased in general, but the same build I've been going for months still applies (slow enemy Heroes down and crush them with A Proper Greeting).
That being said, I love the change to Blessing of the Bronze and I think I'll meme-pick that for a dozen games and see how it feels (rather than Pierce). Beyond that, Fast Forward seems oddly compelling as well. Getting that cooldown reset (essentially) and now with a little resource refund, I think that actually competes with the other two options on that tier. More sand spam? Count me in.
Here's my working build:
