Which one do you think is better? I say windwalk, but I gotta go soon, so I'll explain myself tomorrow. I'd like to hear some other people's ideas.

It depends on your playing style. WindWalk is much better if you are a stealthy attack-type person, while mirror image is better for all-out combat where you need as much meat as you can.

I personally prefer mirror image by a long shot,it gives you a few more good meat shields and confuses your oponent(especially if he's a newB)

I agree with Phantom. You see, in the early game it is pointless since you can send a peon to scout the enemy, and it doesnt matter if he dies or not. I think the best use of windwalk, is onlt AFTER you get bladestorm. You cant windwalk, than bladstorm right by their units. Although, windwalk is good for escaping places where the battle is lost to u.

Okay, I agree that mirror image makes a great meat shield, but it's used so much that most players know by experience how to target the real blademaster. I like to use windwalk, especially on the Crucible map. They build their defenses at the entrance, and I just windwalk past them and see if their troops are around. Early in the game I sneak in while their troops are creep hunting and I hit the resource line. I can usually take out several workers, and by the time their troops arive I can just cloak myself again and leave. It's super fun to do, and throws your enemy off mentally.
