Heroes of the Storm: Jim Raynor – quick guide

Published

The rebel, the renegade commander, James Eugene “Jim” Raynor. The major protagonist of Blizzard’s Starcraft Series, was kidnapped from the Starcraft World and brought to the Nexus to become a Hero of the Storm. One of the most beloved characters from the Blizzard universe, changes his opinion about the Zerg race fighting alongside Kerrigan (the love of his life) to bring down Mengsk, the leader of the dominion forces. He might not be the most intelligent man but Raynor is resourceful and persistent and because he is always willing to do the right thing, he can face even the most hostile situations.

Raynor is a ranged Assassin hero with attack damage of 40 and base health of 725 at level 1. Keep in mind that the Assassin is a burst damage hero, so don’t try and make it a support. One of the first things you’ll have to do is to choose the first talents right after you start the game.

SeasonedLevel 1: You’ll have to choose between: Give me more; Seasoned Marksman; Raiders “recruitment” and Scouting Drone. I personally start by choosing Seasoned Marksman just because for every 6 enemies killed you get 1 basic attack damage and if you’ll get into the late game, trust me you’ll need it more than any other skill. When you have a good team you’ll get to level 4 in no time, and you’ll have to choose the next talent.

VampiricLevel 4: At this level you’ll have to choose between: Focused Attack; Vampiric Assault; Confident aim and Activated Rush. I usually go for Vampiric Assault because at this level you’ll have to start to think about your health, and with every hit on enemy creeps or heroes you’ll get 15% heal of your basic attack and it works hand in hand with the Seasoned Marksman.

HamstringLevel 7: Hamstring Shot; Revolution Overdrive; Fight or Flight or Mercenary Lord. Here you’ll really have to take Hamstring Shot for that 20% movement speed reduction for 3 seconds, you are after all an Assassin.

bansheeLevel 10: Once you’ll reach level 10 you’ll get a new skill (ultimate). I go for Raynor’s Raiders just because you’ll get more damage in less time. Meanwhile, Hyperion is an AOE damage skill and it attacks up to 4 Random enemies in its path and it only lasts 12 seconds, also enemies can walk out of its path.

giantLevel 13: Giant Killer; Double-Barreled; Steel Resolve and Puttin’ on a clinic. As an Assassin you’ll need Giant Killer. As long as the hero’s health is at maximum, your damage will be increased with 1.5% of the hero’s maximum health and it’s a good combination with Vampiric Assault because if you give more damage you’ll heal faster.

eyeLevel 16: Executioner; Cluster round; Bullseye; Relentless Leader or Berserk. Bullseye definitely! It’s a combination between stunning your enemy for 1 second while making him take 50% more damage. That 1 second stun can help you disrupt your enemies’ over-time skills, and help the team more that you could imagine.

blinkspeedLevel 20: The last talents offered in the game are: Scorched Earth; Dusk’s Wings; A Card to Play, Nexus Frenzy and Bolt of the Storm. I usually went for Bolt of the Storm because you can go in and out of a battle whenever you want, but you can also use efficiently Nexus Frenzy for that 20% attack speed and range bonus.

This is the most useful way to play your character as an Assassin, because you’ll have a combination between dealing damage, health regeneration and speed/blink. Don’t forget this is a team game, so don’t expect to win all by yourself, no matter how good your build is. Feel free to tell me your opinions on other builds for Jim Raynor. If you tried and liked my quick guide, stay tuned for the ones I’ll write about other characters (I’m thinking about Tassadar or Malfurion next).

Who doesn’t enjoy listening to a good story. Personally I love reading about the people who inspire me and what it took for them to achieve their success. As I am a bit of a self confessed tech geek I think there is no better way to discover these stories than by reading every day some articles or the newspaper . My bookcases are filled with good tech biographies, they remind me that anyone can be a success. So even if you come from an underprivileged part of society or you aren’t the smartest person in the room we all have a chance to reach the top. The same message shines in my beliefs. All it takes to succeed is a good idea, a little risk and a lot of hard work and any geek can become a success. VENI VIDI VICI .

After the recent port to PS5, Microsoft is “really pleased” with the overall sales and performance of Sea of Thieves. As a result, more people are playing the Xbox and PC versions as well. Matt Booty, president of game content and studios at Microsoft Gaming, said this:. He also said that the success of the series means it can grow and that more money should be spent on a Variety podcast interview.

Microsoft is bringing four games that used to only be available on Xbox to other systems. Sea of Thieves was the last of these games to come out. The others are Pentiment, Grounded, and Hi-Fi Rush. Even though things have been going well lately, Booty says that more ports will be dealt with “case-by-case.”

News spread before the port came out that Sea of Thieves was being used as a “key test” to see if more Xbox-only games would be ported to PS5, PS4, and Xbox One. In May 2024, the game was the best-selling PS Store game in both Europe and the US. It also did well in the weekly sales charts.

Aside from the four games that have already been ported to Xbox, nothing else has been officially confirmed. However, news reports say that a lot of exclusive games may be about to come to other platforms. Some say that PS5 games like Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, Starfield, and a rumored remaster of Halo: Combat Evolved are all being thought about.

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.

Most new games these days have some kind of photography feature, so it’s hard to remember a time before Photo Modes. Some developers don’t think it’s important for players to be able to take pictures right away, so the feature is added later. One great example of this is Alan Wake 2, which now has Photo Mode thanks to a new update that is now available.

If you look at the trailer above, you can see that you can really get creative with your photos by adding cool borders, overlays, and filters. We always like photo modes, where you can move different lights around in the scene. As the video shows, Remedy really lets you use your imagination with the different colors and lighting props.
