Lore

Where the forest’s roots dwindle into the salty sand of the Azure Cove lives a rather unusual Wilder. Where peacefulness and grace are the most common traits associated with the dwellers of the woodlands, Gorvo is a lumbering mountain of poor temperament quick to anger and action. Solitary and generally inhospitable, he seldom goes a whole season without demonstrating his strength by throwing some unwelcome visitor far into the waves of the cove. On the odd occasion that the unfortunate can’t swim, Gorvo will grumble some curses to himself and stride into the surf, swimming out to retrieve the intruder and bring them back to the shore. They never stay long after that, and Gorvo wouldn’t have it any other way.

The primary exception to this behavior is Seirus, the elemental that inhabits the waters of the cove. The two learned to respect one another after a chance encounter led to a scrap that lasted for hours on end. Finding themselves well-matched, they began to meet on occasion to spar in the sea foam. Though neither would admit it, they enjoy one another’s company enough to think of the other as a friend. They can sometimes be seen together patrolling the beaches, keeping a watchful eye over their domain.

Gorvo may be rather light in the friendship department, but nobody has any doubt about his allegiance to the forest and the Wilders. His unpleasant disposition remained unchanged when the Hypogeans arrived in his lands, and his strength and size serve him well in the fight against the invaders. An immovable object of swirling fury in combat, he serves as an invaluable tool for his people. The gigantic hammer he carries is capable of crushing even the toughest of demons into sludge or sending them flying, shattered, meters away. His shell allows him to focus on his attacks, as no weapon the enemy possesses is capable of piercing it. There are few things Gorvo enjoys more than the thrill of real combat, and he feels something close to joy when he spots a demonic incursion.

The ocean, tranquil though it may seem, holds many secrets. With the resurgence of the Hypogean menace, there is no telling what horrors may come up from the deep. Gorvo has not failed to notice the anxiety Seirus has begun to feel, but no matter what the threats may be, Gorvo is ready to meet it. Hammer in hand, he stands and watches the waves.

“Get off my beach”

What about gorvo since his buff?

I honestly love Gorvo. I have him Mythic+ because i literally drew 4 of him in 3 days. Im still mid game, so mine if lvl 155, but still has good damage output and a huge amount of health. since he jumps right into the enemies, he makes a good distraction along with his shield that will keep him alive.
I would be weary about using him against a team with saveas though. since he does dive into the middle of the enemies, saveas will automatically target and kill him

This is bull. I removed Brutus after running 18 40 over 50 times in failure. Swapped to Gorvo and made it in 3 tries. So misvalued.

what ascension is your gorvo at?

He’s not misvalued, he’s not a great hero. He helped you, with your specific comp, in your specific situation. Almost every hero can shine under the right circumstances, that doesn’t mean they are a generally better or more useful hero.

Brutus is the better hero in general. Gorvo might get you through a fight every once in a while subbing him in for brutus, but most of the time you’ll get better results with brutus.

CC stands for Crowd Control. Slow, stuns, knock-ups, etc..

I managed to pull 2 of him in a fairly short time after release, I got him to Legendary and gave him some good gear. Since then I have been using him as the tank in my Wilder/CC-heavy team comps. Hes a very solid solid unit and I fail to understand why people are rating him any lower than 4/5. That’s not to say hes as good as say Lucius, but then again, hes nothing like Lucius; Lucius is a tank/support hybrid style unit, with a focus on shields/healing and supporting the team, whereas Gorvo is a DPS/CC tank with… Read more »

thanks for your info! i’ve been wondering myself why he’s not rated that good in the tier list either, his cc seems godlike to me. so do you think he can replace ulmus on the wishlist?

Hauk

Well, as far as Ulmus goes, hes a bit more of a traditional tank now that he got his buff: he will stand in front your squishies, and has a heal as well as a bit of cc. He is very reliant on his ult for survival though, and isn’t really a popular choice for anything but late game stall defense in pvp. So I guess it comes down to the kind of team comps you run, and what your tank selection looks like right now. If you want to build towards the typical kinds of high end comps, then… Read more »

Not so sure Gorvo is selfish, more so Lucius is a little more selfless. His taunt like you said really solidifies his space on a team and really rounds out any of the pure Wilder teams. His DPS is definitely higher than most of the other tanks and his CC is absolutely insane. Coupled with Hendrik at the front, the field looks like bumper cars His risk of being burnt down is really only present if you aren’t running a support like Tasi and Nemora which most people tend to have on their teams anyways. Not sure if I would… Read more »
