    Tyrande Rework - How Do You Feel About It?

    I was very unhappy with the changes to her as I just started to enjoy playing her as a dedicated support role. Now, from what I have heard and read, people are loving the changes as far as being more of an Assassin role goes.

    However, I have not seen or heard any feedback in regards to her ability to be a support now. I really find it tedious and very insufficient to play Tyrande as a support. Its frustrating to play her when knowing that I could play any other support and be more of an asset.

    I have two questions for all of you out there: Do you enjoy the rework overall? And do you think she should be reclassified as an Assassin?

    Whenever I play her, I play her purely as support. She wouldn't be a very effective assassin at all, at least in my opinion.

    Where do we see the updates?

    Honestly I kinda liked my Sentinel builds so if it's like that I might not mind more dps role.

    So I've played 3 games with her, and she is honestly trash now. A hero based almost completely on auto attacks with terrible range and no defensives = gets wrecked real quick.
    She's also spammy if you do actually get to attack, and not terribly enjoyable play.

    The baseline owl quest is acceptable. She needs a range boost, badly. And the old global cloak heal back.

    She feels very strong now. Not on the high levels of new Alarak but strong. The reworked ultimate also seems to work very well with her kit.

    I really like this rework but now Tyrande can't be built as a solo support, which is shame. No healing ulti was the biggest factor here.

    But other than that it looks solid.

    Watch this, DunkTrain and Bakery talk in depth about her changes.

    Bakery is Support player for Team Dignitas and DunkTrain is retired Support player for Cloud9. I passed it myself as I care little about Tyrande, but they have been talking about her for over 40 minutes.

    1. No more owl build.
    2. Too many never-ending quests.
    3. Her only heal (not counting lvl 16 talents) is Q but if you try to auto attack anyone to reduce the cooldown of Q you are dead.

    I'm still in early testing, I think she's currently a little weak but it won't take much to push her too far - a slight increase to her AA range is probably a good place to start.

    Shes useless. The rework did not chanage that.

    By the sounds of it shes a long way off the 60% winrate she used to have in HL, it's a shame she is my most played hero and need to completely relearn her kit. Will see how she if but doubt she will ever be a viable solo healer if this is the direction they are taking her.

    I'd like them to increase the range of her AA so she can actually survive any teamfight, other than that I think if they changed her Q cd to something like 6 sec and add 1 sec CDR from AA, it would help her immensly, as it is now, if you cannot AA you're dead.

    I seem to be overall okay with the changes, but she was already a weak support so why remove her healing ult? Seems a bit strange.

    After playing her a bit, I'd have to say that she has been considerably nerfed, in many important areas (such as being a healer) dramatically so. The range nerfs make attacking more dangerous and risky, her healing has been essentially cut in half, also she now must choose to heal herself or someone else (not both anymore). She has a moderate damage increase, but as mentioned, it is much more risky. Couple that with endless quests it is a vicious circle with more downtime from being more risky to play.

    Overall, she's been essentially triple nerfed to be granted a small DPS increase and the ability to perform a minor burst of damage. Very bad changes and it requires buffs, particularly to healing, in my opinion.
