Mercy may have only recently received some pretty major changes to both her Resurrect and Valkyrie abilities but apparently Blizzard isn’t quite happy with the status quo when it comes to everyone’s favourite healer. The previous major patch moved Mercy’s resurrect ability from here ultimate slot to one of her cooldown abilities, replacing it with the mighty Valkyrie, given mercy an almighty buff and the ability to fly. These changes had seen Mercy consolidate her place as the most popular support hero, and Blizzard appear to have taken note of her potentially overpowered new position.
The latest update to the PTR has seen a pretty significant shift in how Valkyrie interacts with Resurrect, this time increasing the range rather than cutting the cooldown timer. We understand this is only a test at the minute and there’s no guarantee that this change will see a full retail release in it’s current form. but it’s interesting to note that this is something Blizzard are working on.
