1. Heroes Medivh Works Well With

In this section, we will look at the Heroes that work particularly well with Medivh.

1.1. Tassadar

Tassadar Portrait Tassadar possesses strong shields and provides a lot of extra vision thanks to his Oracle Icon Oracle Trait, which makes him a very similar Hero to Medivh in terms of mechanics. The two combined can make single priority targets, ideally (melee) Assassins and Warriors, extremely hard to kill when using Force of Will Icon Force of Will and Plasma Shield Icon Plasma Shield efficiently.

1.2. Tracer

Tracer Portrait Tracer hugely benefits from any kind of shield abilities to keep her safe while she dives into the enemy backline to harass squishy Assassins and Supports. Force of Will Icon Force of Will, especially if upgraded with Reabsorption Icon Reabsorption at Level 16, provides the ultimate defense to Tracer, which turns her into a very scary opponent to face.

1.3. Sonya

Sonya Portrait Sonya is designed to dive into the enemy backline, quickly damaging high priority targets. Consequently, she will draw a lot of enemy attention onto herself. This is where Medivh's Force of Will Icon Force of Will and Portal Icon Portal abilities come into play. Cast your shield on Sonya when the enemy team is focusing on her the most and enable her to either engage or disengage with your Portals.

1.4. Kerrigan

Kerrigan Portrait Kerrigan is a high risk high reward Hero par excellence. If protected well, she can single-handedly decide the outcome of a team fight, if left unprotected she does not add much to her team. Luckily for Kerrigan, Medivh's Force of Will Icon Force of Will allows her to engage quite recklessly, while Portal Icon Portal provides her with extra mobility, which she otherwise lacks.

2. Heroes Medivh Is Countered By

In this section, we will look at the Heroes that counter Medivh particularly well.

2.1. Anub'arak

Anub'arak Portrait Anub'arak is known for locking down individual targets very well thanks to his strong crowd control abilities. Furthermore his Burrow Charge Icon Burrow Charge allows him to engage directly on Medivh, which can cause a lot of problems for him if Portal Icon Portal is not cast fast enough.

2.1.1. How To Play Against Anub'arak

Make sure to keep a healthy distance to Anub'arak unless you know that both his Impale Icon Impale and Burrow Charge Icon Burrow Charge are on cooldown. Also, keep an eye out on team members who got caught out-of-position and help them out with a quickly cast Portal Icon Portal to their location. Ultimately, Poly Bomb Icon Poly Bomb can work wonders on Anub'arak, since it prevents him from using Burrow Charge to escape focus fire.

2.2. Sylvanas

Sylvanas Portrait Unfortunately for Medivh, Sylvanas causes a lot of problems thanks to her AoE damage capabilities and, most importantly, her Silence effect coming from Wailing Arrow Icon Wailing Arrow.

2.2.1. How To Play Against Sylvanas

It is crucial to avoid getting hit by Sylvanas' Wailing Arrow Icon Wailing Arrow in order to use Force of Will Icon Force of Will on allied targets that did get hit. Furthermore, make sure to provide vision (preferably while in Raven Form Icon Raven Form) on her movement in particular, as Sylvanas players often try to split-push and destroy Structures. Picking Guardian of Tirisfal Icon Guardian of Tirisfal at Level 20 can be very useful way to deal with Sylvanas' powerful waveclear.

2.3. Lunara

Lunara Portrait Good Lunara players can cause a lot of problems for Medivh because of the heavy AoE damage they are capable of dishing out. While Medivh is strong when it comes to protecting single targets against burst damage, he generally struggles when multiple allies are damaged at the same time.

2.3.1. How To Play Against Lunara

During the draft it is of utmost importance to alert your teammates that picking a strong AoE Healer like Rehgar or Kharazim is the best way to deal with Lunara's damage. While ingame, Medivh's main goal should be to protect his fellow Warriors and melee Assassins, who pose the biggest threat to Lunara. Placing a Portal Icon Portal near her can force her to retreat, since Lunara lacks any form of innate escape mechanisms pre Level 20. Using your Raven Form Icon Raven Form to approach her safely and immediately following up with a Portal directed towards your allies is a good way to put the pressure onto her.
