Raynor is a powerful and simple sustained damage. He excels in pretty much any composition, being relatively bulky with good self-sustain, while also offering a solid damage output through his auto attacks.
Ace In The Hole
Deal 10% more damage to Stunned or Slowed enemy Heroes.
It may not seem like it, but based off of math, Ace in the Hole is by far the best talent. If you're super low on CC and playing on Braxis, you can consider Veteran Marksman, but it's never a bad idea to just go Ace.
Fight or Flight
Reduce Adrenaline Rush's cooldown by 10 seconds. Casting Adrenaline Rush grants 25 Armor for 3 seconds,
Fight or Flight gives Raynor way stronger sustain, and also makes him very difficult to burst, thanks to the armor you can give yourself by triggering your self-heal.
Increase the area of Give 'Em Some Pepper by 15%, and enemies hit by it are Slowed by 10% for 2.5 seconds.
This gives you a frequent slow to let you proc Ace in the Hole. Very cool.
Summon a Banshee that assists Raynor. The Banshee deals 84 damage per second and regenerates 75 Health per second if it hasn't taken damage in the last 4 seconds. Can reactivate to retarget or move the Banshee. The Banshee respawns automatically after 45 seconds. Leash range: 14.
Both of Raynor's ults are excellent. Hyperion gives strong area denial and does a lot of siege damage, while Raider allows Raynor to constantly function as 1.25 heroes and dish out a ton of damage. If you aren't comfortable microing the raider, feel no shame in taking Hyperion, though.
Gain 10% Movement Speed while mounted and unmounted. Inspire grants 8% more Movement Speed.
This gives Raynor crazy mobility, allowing him to engage on and escape from most heroes.
Paint Them Red
Increase the damage of Penetrating Round by 50% and heal for 90% of the damage it deals to Heroes.
This gives Raynor another powerful self-heal, especially since Penetrating Round is normally saved for disengaging or pushing back a diving enemy.
Increase Attack Speed by 20%. Basic Attack damage is increased by 25% against targets below 50% Health.
Execute increases Raynor's damage by an insane amount, and is the default, though in the right circumstances any of his 20 tier talents can be strong.
