Yrel is a melee protection paladin with crowd control and sustain abilities. Her abilities can be charged for a short period of time to increase the damage. Pressing the button once to begin charging, then press again to unleash it upon the enemy. However, Yrel moves slower while charging an ability. Only one ability can be charged at a time.

After traveling to an Alternate Draenor, the forces of Azeroth saved the acolyte Yrel from the Iron Horde. With their aid, she rose to the rank of Exarch and fought back the demonic invasion of her world. Now, she finds herself where time, space, and dimensions converge: the Nexus.
