1. Heroes Tyrande Works Well With

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

1.1. Arthas

Arthas Portrait Arthas' strong crowd control abilities, namely Howling Blast Icon Howling Blast and Frozen Tempest Icon Frozen Tempest, synergise extremely well with Tyrande's Lunar Flare Icon Lunar Flare, which makes them dangerous gankers during the early and mid game. During the later stages of the game, Arthas' slows and roots allow Tyrande to land her Lunar Flare and Sentinel Icon Sentinel abilities more easily, while Light of Elune Icon Light of Elune makes him even more resilient than he already is.

1.2. Kael'thas

Kael'thas Portrait Kael'thas' Phoenix Icon Phoenix has rougly the same size as Tyrande's Starfall Icon Starfall Heroic Ability which allows them to deal an incredible amount of AoE damage if combined properly. Furthermore, with Kael'thas being a very fragile ranged Assassin, the additional support Tyrande provides with Light of Elune Icon Light of Elune and Protective Shield Icon Protective Shield can be crucial in keeping him alive.

1.3. The Butcher

The Butcher Portrait The Butcher and Tyrande form one of the deadliest ganking duos in the game. In order to execute a successful gank, Tyrande should cast Hunter's Mark Icon Hunter's Mark and Lunar Flare Icon Lunar Flare shortly after The Butcher successfully charges and stuns and enemy with his Ruthless Onslaught Icon Ruthless Onslaught. As every melee Assassin, The Butcher will probably become a high priority target for the enemy team which is why he particularly benefits from the additional support Tyrande provides him with.

1.4. Tyrael

Tyrael Portrait Tyrael's Judgment Icon Judgment is one of the strongest initiation abilities in the game. The stun it provides offers perfect groundwork for Tyrande's follow up abilities, especially Lunar Flare Icon Lunar Flare and Hunter's Mark Icon Hunter's Mark. But even before a team fight breaks out, Sentinel Icon Sentinel can offer some important vision for Tyrael to choose a good target for Judgment more easily.

2. Heroes Tyrande Is Countered By

In this section, we will look at the heroes that counter Tyrande particularly well.

2.1. Illidan

Illidan Portrait Illidan is a swift melee Assassin that needs to be a high priority target, otherwise he will wreak havoc in your team's backline. The best way to shut Illidan down is to either stun or silence him, which makes Tyrande a relatively poor choice against him, because her Lunar Flare Icon Lunar Flare is rather hard to land against mobile Heroes like Illidan.

2.1.1. How To Play Against Illidan

Illidan should have an easy time dodging Lunar Flare Icon Lunar Flare which is why you should try to wait until he is either slowed or rooted by one of your teammates before using your abilities. Picking up Sprint Icon Sprint can be a very good choice as Tyrande really struggles to escape a mobile Hero like Illidan who can easily catch up to her. Hunter's Mark Icon Hunter's Mark is an important tool to increase all damage done to Illidan by 25%, which is why you should exclusively use it on him.

2.2. Nova

Nova Portrait Nova poses a serious threat to fragile Heroes such as Tyrande, as they are perfect targets for her Snipe Icon Snipe. At the same time, Tyrande's Light of Elune Icon Light of Elune usually does not provide enough healing power to efficiently deal with Nova's strong burst damage.

2.2.1. How To Play Against Nova

Starfall Icon Starfall's AoE damage and movement speed reduction can be a great zoning tool to force Nova to show herself. Also, try to predict Nova's movement and position yourself behind other Heroes, Minions, or Mercenaries to avoid her burst damage. Furthermore, keep in mind that friendly Structures, such as Walls, Forts, or Keeps, provide protection against Nova's Triple Tap Icon Triple Tap Heroic Ability.

2.3. Uther

Uther Portrait Uther's Cleanse Icon Cleanse talent and his Divine Shield Icon Divine Shield Heroic Ability counter one of Tyrande's biggest strengths, which is weakening her enemies by applying Hunter's Mark Icon Hunter's Mark on them and stunning them with Lunar Flare Icon Lunar Flare. Consequently, he is capable of greatly reducing Tyrande's overall combat performance during team fights.

2.3.1. How To Play Against Uther

When playing against Uther, Tyrande players have to be very careful about timing their abilities wisely. Try to avoid casting Hunter's Mark Icon Hunter's Mark on a target that is about to get protected by Divine Shield Icon Divine Shield and use Starfall Icon Starfall early on in order to deal as much AoE damage as possible, since Uther struggles at keeping several allies alive at the same time.
