MMASniper's Illidan Build
Illidan was the most evasive hero before Genji came into the fray. He is a great hero coupled with Abathur and against Auto-attack hero comps. His biggest weaknesses are tied between roots and blinds. This build brings in damage through Sweeping Strike, evasion through Sweeping Strike, sustain through Betrayer's Thirst, and hero reliability through Metamorphoisis. The Hunt can be chosen if your frontline is getting destroyed by the backline or there's too much enemy mobility and escapes, The Hunt can help track and lockdown heroes to finish them off. Take camps and secure kills with Illidan, there's a balance to play with him if you want to be proficient.
