The Dueling Fates update on Oct. 30 brought a slew of changes and the introduction of two brand new heroes, Donté Panlin the Pangolier and Mireska Sunbreeze the Dark Willow.

Neither hero are currently available for usage in competitive play just yet, but it's only a matter of time until they are. In anticipation of the coming storm that they'll likely bring to the competitive scene, here's what their numbers looked like from the previous week on Nov. 10.

Both heroes saw an above average pick rate (8.7%) in pubs as Dark Willow has a 9.76% pick rate, while Pangolier had a fairly higher 12.9% pick rate. Pub players are still ironing out their kinks however, as both heroes field a below average winrate, Dark Willow with a 48.2% winrate and Pangolier with 45%.

Regardless of which hero you choose to take for a spin in your pubs, definitely avoid both if the enemy team happens to have drafted either Spectre or Centaur Warrunner. Pangolier and Dark Willow share particularly low success rates against those heroes at a 40% win rate and lower.
