Blizzard has announced a new hero for their game Overwatch, and it’s a healer named Moira. Moira is versatile when it comes to the healer class in that she is both a healer and a DPS (damage per second) dealer. She can either damage foes with an attack that applies lifesteal with her right hand, or heal allies with her left hand. She can also fire a biotic orb that can either heal allies or damage enemies it comes in contact with. Add to that an ability that boosts her mobility and you have a deadly mix of abilities.
Here is her full ability list:
- Biotic Grasp: Using her left hand, Moira expends biotic energy to heal allies in front of her. Her right hand fires a long-range beam weapon that saps enemies’ health, healing Moira and replenishing her biotic energy.
- Biotic Orb: Moira launches a rebounding biotic sphere; she can choose between a regeneration effect that heals the allies it passes through, or a decay effect that deals damage to enemies.
- Fade: Moira quickly teleports a short distance.
- Coalescence: Moira channels a long-range beam that both heals allies and bypasses barriers to damage her enemies.
