Heroes of the Storm Map Guide: Cursed Hollow
Cured Hollow is the traditional 3-corridor battleground. Its main feature is to collect Raven Lord’s tributes. When your team gathered 3 tributes, the Raven Lord will curse your enemies. The curse will last 1 min, 10secs and cause the following effects:
1. During the time of the curse, the screen will darken.
2. Cursed forts won’t attack and have their half HP.
3. Cursed minions are reduced to 1 Hit Point.
How to Play
Raven Lord’s tributes will spawn randomly on 4 particular places. And when a tribute are about to spawn, there will be an exclamation mark on the mini map. So, when you saw the mark, head immediately to the Tribute to help your team out in the fight.
As Raven Lord’s curse has a big influence on the victory, both side players won’t give up the tribute easily. And you must channel on it for several seconds without taking any damage. So, the first thing you arrived the tribute is to drive your enemies away. Thus, you have enough time to channel off the tribute.
If you are unfortunately cursed, there is no doubt that you team should have some disadvantages. Disabled forts and weakness minions will make you be very passive. All you can do is to get together with your teammates and take damage for your forts. Of course, it doesn’t mean you use hero’s life to resist enemies, just that utilizing hero’s skills to hold them off. As long as you insist on a minute and your forts haven’t been destroyed, then you still have chance for the victory.
If you’ve cursed the enemy, just push! Get together with your teammates to push a lane. Don’t skimp skills, you need to eliminate enemy minions quickly by AOE and drive your enemies away. DO not pursue them. You should destroy enemy forts as soon as possible during the cursed time. Besides, before the curse start, if you ensure you can get the last tribute, you team can send a hero to capture mercenary camp. Thus, you will have more advantages to push the lane.
Basically, the team who curse the rival first will maintain the advantage till the end. So, the first curse is most important objective. Try you best to grab tributes.
