Regarding Inocultaion, can you confirm that it also affects the self-safeguard proc'ed from Trauma Trigger?

 

About Medivac Dropship, I'd like to suggest making it Situational. It's a great heroic, huge impact but require practices and good coordination. I know this guide is more solo queue oriented but still, marking Medivac as Not Recommended causes an impression that this ability is bad, but it's not.

Hey Haven, 

 

Inoculation does not affect Trauma Trigger, as it says "and untalented version of Safeguard" in the talent description. 

 

I disagree. Medivac has the potential of becoming a "dead" Heroic Ability in many Solo Q and even premade 5v5 games, especially if your team falls behind early. Also, it specifically says in the talent description that it can be good if the team is very well coordinated.

But, but, how about those flashy escape with Medivac, because... second health pool? Just kidding. But it was funny to see those, though

Hi!

 

I agree your reasoning in not making medivac a situational talent, however I would still like to hear on your reasoning on the Medbay at level 20, its possible use as a AoE Healing Cooldown (if I now were foolish enough to go down the Medivac path smile.png ), vs Caduceus Reactor 2.0. And also, as the intro in the guide says: 

Here you will learn everything you need to know in order to play Lt. Morales in a competitive environment, whether you play on your own or with a team.

 

 which means, I might be playing pre-made 5-man teams in which we do play with medivac. As I said, I just wanna hear your reasoning behind the talent, it sounds half decent considering it only has a 50 second cooldown, looks quite bursty, and heals both heroes on the ground and inside even while flying smile.png

Even if you decided to go Medivac in a fully premade 5-man team, I wouldn't go for Medbay at Level 20. 

 

Caduceus Reactor 2.0 marks the ultimate power spike for Lt. Morales in the late game. Using this talent she removes two of her greatest weaknesses: mana consumption and her lack of self-protection. Remember: When playing as a support it is part of your job to keep yourself alive. If the support player dies early on, the ensuing team fight is already lost. 

 

So all in all, Caduceus Reactor 2.0 is seen as one of the best Level 20 talents in the game (I actually talked to a couple of EU pro players while writing the guide back then) and I think that fact hasn't really changed.

I just like to point that lvl7 talent Clear! is very usefull against Zeratul's ambush on you and gives your teammates time to burst him down before he burst down Lt. Morales. Also followed by Second Opinion at lvl16 makes peeling him after he ambush your backline very painfull situations for him.

Hi there Kendric!

 

First of all thank you for all the awesome guides and help and contribution in general to the HotS community :)

 

I just wanted to point out some outdated information in this Morales guide.

 

It's regarding Cleanse. 

 

First you describe:

 

Cleanse cannot be used on yourself.

 

But later you state:

 

Cleanse provides a short crowd control reduction, which means it can be used preemptively on Lt. Morales herself to get her out of dangerous spots in time.

 

So you see, with a quick edit it won't be confusing for newcomers.

 

Thanks again and keep the good job!

 

El GrindCore.

Have the stacking of resists changes affected the choice for Inocolation over Shield Sequencer at Lv 16? I can't quite find how they stack (if at all).

Hey everyone! 

It is my pleasure to announce our newly updated and converted Lt. Morales Guide! May it guide you to victory - Lt. Morales is quite a hot hero to play right now. She forms an incredible couple with Zul'jin!

After seeing the impact that Troll Warlord has in DoTA2, no surprise at all that Morales is loving playing with Zul'jin.

      A new in-development video previews Valeera's abilities, several new skins and three mounts!
      Blizzard has released a new in-development video on the Heroes of the Storm YouTube channel. Earlier today, they teased with Thistle Tea on Twitter. Maybe Valeera will use Energy as a resource and Sinister Strike will generate combo points. Eviscerate would deal damage based on the number of combo points she has.
      Valeera Abilities
      She seems to be a faithful copy of WoW's assassination rogue. Here are her abilities based on WoW tooltips to give you a better idea of her kit.
      [D] -  Vanish (Trait)
      [Q] - Sinister Strike
      [W] - Blade Flurry
      [E] - Eviscerate
      [R1] - Smoke Bomb
      R2 - Cloak of Shadows
      Valeera also comes with a "Demon Hunter" skin that will be part of a bundle. The skin has themed abilities.
      New Skins
      Master Valeera Demon Hunter Valeera Lunar Li-Ming Monkey King Samuro New Mounts
      Felsaber

      Nimbus Cloud

      Lunar Rooster

      Screenshots were taken from the in-development video below.

      Blizzard announced on Twitter that Valeera arrives on Public Test Realm tomorrow. 
      Zul'jin got released without testing, but Valeera is hitting PTR soon and she will probably go live the week after. We'll be adding her abilities and talents once they become available. Remember, if you purchase a Hero on PTR, it will automatically unlock for the region of your choice when the patch goes live.

      After the free Hero weekend, the standard rotation returns with 10 new Heroes that have been selected for gameplay, it's weird that it matches the rotation that Blizzard posted last week, but they decided to change last week's rotation on short notice.
      Free-to-Play Hero Rotation: January 17 - 24, 2017
      Clicking on a Hero name will take you to the corresponding build guide.
