    Very strong tech against dragons and Diablo + Cairne, fire comps and Tavish with Dragon's Skull equipment.

    The only merc without a race. Maybe he is useful in Blackrock Mountain because there are a lot of dragons and fire skills?

    Absolutely not a fan of the Dragon hate, which sucks because I wanted to like Gruul.

    I guess summoning an Orc could be kind of OK in an Orc party, but you'd probably just want to use an actual Orc merc in the first place.

    Gruul will live or die based on how many Dragons exist in PvE, because there are only three in PvP at the game's start: Alexstrasza, Brightwing, and Voone's Evasive Wyrm. That's it, really; he's way too niche to be useful outside of this situation. Level him up if you badly need to get through a Dragon boss, but then return him to the bench.
