Blizzplanet Preview: Ana Abilities

Last week, Blizzplanet was invited to the Heroes of the Storm virtual press event to learn more about the new Volskaya battleground, and the next two heroes planned to come to the Nexus: Ana and Junkrat.

 

Today, we can share with you details of Ana’s abilities. She is a burst support hero who uses precise skill shots to heal allies and denies enemy healing. At first glance, Ana seems the type of Support Hero many players might want to play often. While she doesn’t have the fast run talent of Li Li, or the knockback of Lt. Morales and Auriel, she has a mean sleeping dart, and a biotic grenade to counter potential assaults on her.

On the healing front, Ana is the second support Hero (out of 13) with two healing basic abilities right off the gate. The other one being Uther. We haven’t heard yet from Blizzard when Ana is coming to the PTR, but based on past hero reveals it is going to be very soon. **Update: Lo and behold, PTR Patch 28 started downloading shortly after this article went online.

The screenshots below show these abilities in action:
