The Holy Cow (ETC Updated 6/20/18)

ETC is an all-around solid tank with good options for peel, engage, laning, picks, teamfighting, and whatever else you can think of. He's a swiss army knife with truthfully only a weakness to heavy CC holding him back.



Pros: Early game pick potential, massive team fight threat, all around great tank

Cons: Weak early laning, lower than average HP pool, weak to heavy cc compositions
1
Prog Rock
Quest: Gathering a Regeneration Globe permanently increases the healing per second of Guitar Solo by 5, to a maximum of 100. Reward: After gathering 20 Regeneration Globes, Guitar Solo also heals nearby allied Heroes for 50 Health every second while it is active.
More healing and AOE support is always nice. Block Party sometimes better against AA heavy teams that want to focus you.
4
Loud Speakers
Increases Face Melt range and knockback by 50%.
Gives more control and works super great with Mic Check at 13.
7
Echo Pedal
Using a Basic or Heroic ability releases two pulses of 15 damage. This deals 250% bonus damage to Minions, Mercenaries and Monsters. The first occurs instantly, the second occurs 2 seconds later.
While Pinball Wizard is better on paper, it often forced you to play worse to get its benefits. Pinball Wizard is better when you're try to just 1-shot enemies off slide, but Echo Pedal better the rest of the time.
10
Mosh Pit
After 0.75 seconds, channel to stun nearby enemies for 4 seconds.
Both Heroics are viable and have their time and place, but as a main tank, Mosh Pit is usually the go-to. There's too much to say about using these abilities to cover here to take Mosh Pit for team fighting and Stage Dive for split pushing.
13
Mic Check
Hitting at least 2 targets with Face Melt reduces its cooldown by 6 seconds.
Lets you spam W's in a fight. Care not to push enemies out of your teammates skills though.
16
Aggressive Shredding
Your Basic Attacks reduce the cooldown of Guitar Solo by .75 second.
Not ETC's strongest skill tier. All 3 are viable, but I've grown to like Aggressive Shredding most of the time. More armor, more Prog rock. This tier is just what is best for keeping you alive.
20
Bolt of the Storm
Activate to teleport to a nearby location.
ETC has some super powerful lvl 20 talents. Tour Bus, Death Mosh, and Bolt all fine options. Bolt is usually the safest and easiest to use. Lets you Bolt out of danger or Bolt -> Mosh when your slide is down for extra threat.
Balance Patch - 8/8/17
