    Ana - Ranged Support - Overwatch Hero



    Background

    One of the founding members of Overwatch, Ana uses her skills and expertise to defend her home and the people she cares for. Hailing from a long line of decorated soldiers, Ana inspired confidence and loyalty in her colleagues and endowed her daughter, Fareeha Amari — Pharah, with an intense sense of duty and honor.

    Ana is regarded as one of the world's deadliest snipers. She originally used a Kinamura rifle, upon which she added a notch for every life she took. Each life weighed heavily on her conscience, and while some snipers preferred to wound targets, in order to lure out more potential targets, she preferred to perform clean kills, disliking causing needless suffering. Her right eye, originally cybernetic, made her vision six times greater than normal, to the extent where she rarely even needed to use the scope.

    I'm super hyped for her as a healer main, I found myself disappointed by Stukov but how can a healing sniper not be fun?

    Heh. The moment when the healer sniper seems to have like double the range of the offensive "Sniper".

    Millennum.org has gotten their hands on Ana's abilities. u/lifeeraser on reddit has been kind enough to translate to English so I'll be adding them to the OP shortly.

    R1 - Nano Boost
    ?? Mana
    Cooldown: 50 seconds
    Instantly restores 200 mana to an ally hero, as well as increasing spell power by 30% and cooldown recharge rate by 150% for 8 seconds.

    They did well having the grenade only increase healing by 25% instead of 50% as in OW, but 100% reduced healing should not be present in the game, especially via a support. Current healing reduction effects are 75% and are gated behind levels & talent choices.

    I feel that they should tone down the reduced healing to 25% before release.

    Keep in mind the cd on the grenade is 16 seconds with only 2 second duration on enemies. If anything I'd say her sleep dart is the overpowered ability, a 3 second CC on a 14 sec CD is pretty insane (yes, even with damage breaking it, it will provide amazing utility for isolating enemies in teamfights and for ganking).

    Sleep dart is a single-target hard skillshot though and I am sure that it will be projectile and generally not easy to land, especially on a moving target. Grenade ain't that hard to land, and if it does not land on enemies, you still get your healing increase on allies, assuming you're tossing it in a cluster for maximum value.

    And 2 seconds is more than enough to fully remove a healer effectively from the fight and easily guarantee a kill, especially if she can 1st sleep the healer while bursting down your desired target which in this case would be a frontline tank. Just thinking of grenading a Rehgar ulti, pains me. It shouldn't be possible. It already sucked when Xul was OP and everywhere, I don't want to see that again, honestly.

    Abilities look great. I like what they did with Nano Boost considering Stim Drone. Biotic Grenade has been a controversial skill in OW. I think 100% healing block is too harsh and as a healer main it's quite crippling. This version at least is on a longer cd and half the duration. I'm assuming Sleep Dart won't break from dots since it's part of her kit.

    I'm anxious to see her talents now.

    Her W looks ridiculously strong, completely disabling Rehgar and Kharazim ultimates with a basic ability.

    I'm so excited for Ana! Definitely looks very fun, a very good addition to hots IMO.

    Indeed, maybe they could nerf it to 75% at least?

    You sure about the latter? From what I understand of Divine Palm, her grenade can't negate it. You're put into stasis prior to being healed, so that should clear the healing debuff.

    Not 100% with the palm, but I'm pretty sure I've seen the healing reduced in the past with things like Xul's healing reduction.

    The Dehaka player in me weeps. Rehgar and Kharazim being of my favorite supports also doesn't help. I guess Stukov (my third favorite) is somewhat better suited against her, though missing a D also sounds painful.

    Yeah you never wanna get your D blocked. That healing disable does sound strong, especially when combined with CC on healer.

    That W sounds completely broken. But when MVPBlack drafts a Morales, Lucio, Brightwing, Varian, Valla combo, it might be just what the game needs.

    I'll keep my reservation on that after Genji and seeing her in action, though I think she will be less aids than Junkrat coming to this game based on the kits you can give both.

    Love Ana.

    I can certainly understand why, his playstyle just doesn't click for me.
