Auriel, Archangel of Hope joins the Nexus on August 9. Here's a preview of her abilities.

Now that Gul'dan's live, it's time to look at Auriel, Archangel of Hope that is targeted for release on August 9. What we know thus far from the leaks is that she has an ability to resurrect an ally. All of her abilities are now available and you can preview them below.

Please note that ability descriptions may be inaccurate and can change at any given stage of the dev process so take them with a grain of salt.

Auriel Abilities

Trait

  • Bestow Hope
    • Gather Hope stacks whenever Auriel deals damage with Angelic Sweep or Auriel's allies deal damage under the effect of Angelic Flight. A maximum of 50 Hope stacks can be stashed. Hope stacks are used for healing.

Basic Abilities

  • Ray of Heaven [Q] - costs 40 Mana, has no cooldown
    • Heal a target ally or near allies with 10 (+4% per level) for each stack of Hope.

  • Angelic Sweep [W] - costs 60 Mana, 8 second cooldown
    • Deals 200 (+4% per level) damage to all enemies caught in the cone between her ribbons. Non-heroic enemy hit grants 2 stacks of Hope and Hero hits grant 6 stacks of Hope.

  • Restraining Blow [E] - costs 50 Mana, 14 second cooldown
    • Knockback a target, dealing 95 (+4% per level) damage, revealing them for 4 seconds. If the target collides with terrain, they will be stunned for 2 seconds.

Secondary (Active) Abilities

  • Angelic Flight (Key 1), 45 second cooldown
    • Activate to teleport to an ally, buffing him for 3 seconds. While under the effect of Angelic Flight, friendly allies grant 5 stacks of Hope for each 50 damage dealt.
    • The buff's effect will be chosen in Level 1 talents.
    • This ability may very well be used instead of a mount.

Heroic Abilities [R]

MPXCOEo.jpg

  • Resurrect [R1] - costs 80 mana, 80 second cooldown
    • Resurrect a downed ally near you to full Health within 4 seconds. If unsuccessful, the target ally will remain downed and will normally respawn.
    • Has a four second window interval, similar to Tyrael's timer before exploding.

  • Ribbon Cocoon [R2] - costs 70 Mana, 80 second cooldown
    • Wrap a target ally in a healing cocoon for up to 5 seconds, healing him for 150 (+4% per level) Health per second. The ally cannot move and be targeted during the effect of this spell. You can cancel the ability by pressing the [R] key again.

Talents

Not much is known about talents yet, but here are those you pick at Level 1 to empower your aura. (Active Ability).

  • Angelic Light
    • Angelic Flight grants a target ally a shield of 300 (+4% per level) for 3 seconds. While under the effect, he grants Auriel 5 Hope stacks for each 50 damage dealt.
  • Angelic Bravery
    • Angelic Flight grants a target ally 30% Attack Speed for 3 seconds. While under the effect, he grants Auriel 5 Hope stacks for each 50 damage dealt.
  • Angelic Aura
    • Angelic Flight grants a targeet ally 50% ability damage reduction for 3 seconds. While under the effect, he grants Auriel 5 Hope stacks for each 50 damage dealt.

Morales was the last support that was added to the game, now it's time to add another one! Auriel's playstyle looks promising, what do you think?

Whole concept of Deal DMG / Heal DMG is fine and for currently argo teams suits well. 4 second Ressurect cast time... in teamfight hard to use in other cases pretty solid but not knowing lvl 20 talents is a little bit problematic to tell which ultimate is better. Second thing there are no corpses in HotS and with crazy ragdol models how the ressurection process will go is a big question. Third that addition ability teleport range. Map / half map  or shotter distance.. Anyway new support blood is always good. With Mediev "strange" kit this one seems fine.

I think they should add supports who are more utility/CC instead of just healing. Maybe make some heroes who are clearly inspired by for example Lion or Shadow Shaman from Dota 2 etc.

Oops! It seems that these abilities are just a theory concept/speculation and not the actual ones. Some guy had posted his theory concept on Heroesfire and a Korean site went ahead and presented them as the actual 'leaked Auriel abilities'.

The whole explanation of the incident can be found here: https://www.reddit.com/r/heroesofthestorm/comments/4ss00g/explanation_about_auriel/

So, long story short, these are not Auriel's abilities.

Technically, Medivh was the latest support hero added to the game... 

 

edit: my bad, I keep thinking Medivh was a support character, but he's listed as a specialist even though in game they monitor support stats and he plays more like a support...   whatever, so kinda the most recent support??

Not entirely true, while some information may be inaccurate, some abilities described here are even previewed in the in-dev video posted a while ago, while her Heroic has been leaked since May.

Technically even her trait is in place as it perfectly fits the latest Hero description from the latest PTR build.

  • Hero/Description/Auriel=A ranged Support whose healing capabilities are dependent on the damage she and her allies deal.

Of course, you need to take leaked information with a grain of salt...

The ability names and Auriel's description are definitely correct, since they were datamined. We also knew about the Resurrect and the previewed abilities in the in-development video. It's just the description of the rest of the other abilities that is made-up.

I actually made an article about Auriel's datamined abilities, but I messed up with the image formatting and it never made the front page hehe

 4 second Ressurect cast time..

It's not 4 second cast time, it's a 4 second window after the ally dies to ressurect them.

Doubt that, since the discription tells exacly the opposite. it ressurects the ally within 4 seconds, which means this is a 4 second cast time. Even if not it will have a cast time anyway cause  i dont believe in instant resurrect, everything that has some hard healing has cast timers or delays. Reghars Healing, Dehakas Adaptation and so on. That is proven by the second part of the ability description - if not succesful.... Means that there is a possibility to interrupt.

      Alan Dabiri announced that he's leaving his current position as Game Director for Heroes of the Storm and he's moving on to another project at Blizzard.
      Alan Dabiri has been Game Director ever since Dustin Browder stepped down in December 2016. He thinks the game is in the right hands right now, as developers continue to deliver interesting new Heroes and events. He's transitioning to a new team within the company. We wish him success in all his future endeavors.
      Here's the message he left on the official forums:
      Blizzard (Source)
      In my 20-plus years at Blizzard, I’ve had the privilege of working on many awesome Blizzard games in roles ranging from software engineer to technical director to game director. Across my many roles and games, my experience working on Heroes of the Storm ranks among the best of my development career. I’ve witnessed Heroes’ evolution from a StarCraft II mod to the amazing game you see today. Heroes’ development has been fueled by the shared excitement of our team and all of you in the community, and the game we’ve built together is the game I play almost every night.
      One of the best things about developing Heroes is the fact that this team is not afraid to try new things while always striving to learn and grow. It’s been part of our DNA from the very beginning, and it’s through years of experimentation that we’ve hit our stride both as a development team, and as a game. This is possible because Heroes has an exceptional development team of both Blizzard veterans and fresh faces who are all highly engaged with the game we’re making, and the players we’re making it for.
      It’s in this spirit of trying new things that I want to let everyone know that a few months ago, I accepted an opportunity to transition off my role as Heroes’ game director to heed Blizzard’s call and begin a new adventure elsewhere within the company. The game director has always been one part of the overall leadership team that drives Heroes forward and it’s been a privilege to work among some of the best game developers at every level on the team all the way up to our production director, Kaéo Milker. Leaving a team and game that I love is incredibly difficult, but seeing the steady strength, creativity, and commitment that Kaéo and the design, engineering, and art leadership teams consistently bring to Heroes has given me more than enough confidence to make this decision. I trust that the game is in the very best hands and their work these past few months has only reinforced my belief.
      They’ve released awesome new heroes like Yrel, Whitemane, Mephisto, and now Mal’Ganis, while building on the themed content drops that let the team do fun things that only Heroes can do. They brought the smackdown (plus my favorite mount, the Luchihuahua!) with Nexomania, finally brought an epic slice of Azeroth into the Nexus with the Alterac Pass Battleground, and joined the Raven Lord’s forces with the Fall of King’s Crest. On top of that, the team has also released awesome reworks like Raynor and Brightwing while adding exciting updates like third ban and Team League improvements. With so many awesome content and feature updates, you can see why I believe that the team has brought us the best year of Heroes of the Storm so far.
      And they’re not done yet. Heroes has one of the most passionate and dedicated development teams I’ve had the pleasure of working with, and they have a ton of exciting new content in development. I can’t wait for you all to see what they have in store for the rest of this year and beyond. You can bet that I’ll be right there enjoying it with you as it’s released, too. I’m sure you’ll agree when I say that Heroes is in a great place and I promise that it’s in the hands of the best possible people to continue driving it forward. Kaéo and the Heroes team are people who play almost every night who also happen to get to work on making the game what it is today. With our continued input and support, they’ll keep doing what they do best by making Heroes of the Storm the most awesome game it can possibly be.
      I just want to sign off by saying thank you to all of you. I’ve had an incredible time working on this game and seeing you bring the battlegrounds to life every day. I’m so grateful for the enthusiasm you’ve brought to Heroes and all the changes you’ve encouraged us to make. I know the team deeply appreciates the feedback you share, so please keep it coming—and as always, I’ll see you in the Nexus!
