Heroes of the Storm (Gameplay) - Gul'dan First Impressions

Gul'dan Gameplay in Heroes of the Storm on the PTR. The new HotS sustain damage dealer was just released and these are my initial impressions. Feels good but keep in mind he has no crowd control and no escape mechanism. 

Who is Gul'dan :
Gul'dan of the Stormreaver Clan was a former orcish shaman of the Shadowmoon Clan from Draenor, who became the first orcish warlock as well as the founder of the Orcish Horde.

Abandoning the ways of shamanism and betraying both his people and his mentor to the demon-lord Kil'jaeden for personal gain and power, Gul'dan was directly responsible for the orcs' fall to demonic enslavement as well as for the Horde's invasion of Azeroth.

Tutored by the lord of the Burning Legion, he became the founder and master of the Shadow Council as well as the creator of the necromantic terrors known as Death-Knights. Gul'dan is considered by many to have been the most cunning and powerful mortal Warlock to ever have existed.[2] He often referred to himself as "Darkness Incarnate" and "The Destroyer of Dreams".

He disbanded the clan of Raiders in the First War. Thrall, son of Durotan, trained grunts to ride to battle on wolves, however, and a few more Raiders came into the Horde. He is the secondary antagonist of Warlords of Draenor and the leader of the Iron Horde, having managed to usurp the position from Grom.

What is Heroes of the Storm or HotS :
Heroes of the Storm (originally titled Blizzard DOTA and later changed to Blizzard All-Stars) is a multiplayer online battle arena video game developed by Blizzard Entertainment for Microsoft Windows and OS X. The game features heroes from Blizzard's franchises including Warcraft, Diablo, StarCraft, Overwatch and The Lost Vikings
