GG Abuthur Healing build.

General Discussion
Heal changed to “over 4 seconds” instead of the full duration of Carapace.
Personally, looking at those changes along with the changes to minions will make a carapace build abathur be a nightmare for pushing. That's if the heal works on the minions and such.
Should be fun to try it out.
Abathur might be slotted in as an alternative to Tassadar in some compositions, though that may be too hopeful. If he actually can act as a supplementary support while he's soaking then this may be the buff he needed.

On the other hand, Abathur is going to be hilariously broken in 0-support quick match games.

No...Abathur was good, Abby could heal someone back to full with shield...but they nerf it so heal only last 4 seconds instead of FOREVER as long as shield is on, which is possible before with lvl 4 shield talent.
I thought the new patch would make this abathur build great, given that minion damage is doubled against structures

But now it will heal more in teamfights where the shield is likely to be broken instantly. Would you rather it heal more in teamfights or heal more when you're laning?

But doesn't it heal twice as much now ? You can pop out of symbiote after 4 seconds and recast it and you get moar heals.

edit: NVM forgot about the cooldown. you get roughly the same healing, but in bursts of 4 seconds.

They did this because the heal talent was effectively useless if the shield got burned off too quickly.

It's a good change, whether you believe so or not.
He will be able to heal really fast to the low hp (especially ranged) assassin while they keep poking. I think its a good change since (now) you need 2 talents to get full value of it (permanent shield and healing shield)and in the next patch you will be able to heal in 4 seconds and move to the next hero.

If you go full shield (or at least 1 and 7 talents) you can heal all the ranged assassins without changing to another hero (if they stick together)
