Tyrande's weaker maps None

Ability Usage:

  • Use Sentinel Icon Sentinel as frequently as possible. The vision it provides helps your team in making better decisions.
  • Always mind your positioning when playing Tyrande. If caught by surprise, she is one of the easiest Heroes to get taken down.
  • Shadowstalk Icon Shadowstalk is an incredibly versatile Heroic Ability. Use it to ambush the enemy team or to cover your retreat.
  • Landing Lunar Flare Icon Lunar Flare on moving targets requires practise and experience. Try to anticipate their movement paths and aim accordingly.

2. Introduction

Tyrande is a ranged Support Hero that offers an exceptional amount of utility. She is capable of providing vision for the rest of her team, healing wounded teammates, and disrupting enemy Heroes by stunning and slowing them. Tyrande is a very versatile Hero which allows her to adapt to the course of the game very well. Her strong crowd control spells and her ability to keep track of the enemy team's movements make up for the lack of healing power she suffers from before hitting Level 13.

3. Strengths

  • Sentinel Icon Sentinel is a useful scouting ability
  • Lunar Flare Icon Lunar Flare works incredibly well with other crowd control abilities
  • Hunter's Mark Icon Hunter's Mark significantly increases her team's damage when focusing on a single enemy target
  • Access to Protective Shield Icon Protective Shield and Healing Ward Icon Healing Ward
  • Allows a variety of talent builds in general
  • High damage for a Support Hero

4. Weaknesses

5. Role In The Current Meta

Tyrande's potent defensive and offensive skills make her one of the most flexible Heroes in the game that fits into many team compositions, even if your team already has a healer. Although she is not able to keep an entire team alive on her own, Light of Elune Icon Light of Elune provides a useful low-cooldown healing spell that will assist your main Support, while Lunar Flare Icon Lunar Flare is a very nice follow-up stun that can be chained with other crowd control abilities.

Tyrande is very viable in the current meta because she fills the spot of a semi support Hero, which means she is able to contribute more damage to the team than a full support Hero could. This will generally result in a more flexible team composition than if your team had two full Support Heroes. Besides, Sentinel Icon Sentinel greatly improves your team's vision which is useful on every map in order to act and react to your enemies' movements. Another aspect that makes Tyrande a very strong pick is her ability to increase all damage dealt to a single enemy Hero by 25% for 4 seconds using Hunter's Mark Icon Hunter's Mark. This allows her and her teammates to focus and kill priority targets a lot faster, especially if her team has good communication.
