McIntyre - Heroes 3.0 Valeera Build

Newest build and the way I've been playing her, I think potion build can still be viable but I've had a lot of fun using this build to follow up behind tanks to burst people out.
After teleporting with Ambush, Cheap Shot, or Garrote, regenerate 10 Energy per second for 5 seconds.
Can take poison if you need CC
Valeera's Basic Attacks deal 40% additional damage to enemies affected by Garrote.
Slice and Dice
Eviscerating an enemy with 3 Combo Points grants 150% Attack Speed. Lasts 3 seconds or 3 Basic Attacks. Passive: Basic Attacks restore 2 Energy.
Smoke Bomb
Create a cloud of smoke. While in the smoke, Valeera is Unrevealable, can pass through other units, and gains 30 Armor, reducing damage taken by 35%. Valeera can continue to attack and use Abilities without being revealed. Lasts 5 seconds. Using this Ability does not break Vanish.
Mini Dshield, use it when you want to get in damage safely
Using Garrote on a Hero reduces their Spell Power by 40% for 6 seconds.
Tech Talent, but mostly using garrote to open.
Seal Fate
Sinister Strike deals 50% additional damage and generates an additional Combo Point when used against silenced, rooted, or stunned enemy Heroes.
Garrote + Q + Evis
Increase Garrote's damage over time by 100%. Valeera's Basic Attacks refresh the duration of Garrote.
Can go lots of ways here, but garrote will find you the most success imo.

There are no comments for this build.
Rupture is way worse than Adrenaline Rush - Rush lets you get a second eviscerate in during the Garrote silence, while Rupture's piddly 44 DPS at 20 isn't nearly as good. The refresh is just overkill, most targets are dead <7 seconds
Also, a completed Vigor outpaces Subtlety in fights that last <3.33 or >10 seconds. Obviously globe quests are tricky, but at only 20 globes it seems more reasonable than always relying on getting the jump from Deep Shadows.
