Mercy is a Hero in Overwatch.
"Heroes never die."
Mercy engages one of two beams that connect to an ally. By maintaining the beams, she can either restore that ally’s health or increase the amount of damage they deal.
Mercy shoots a round from her sidearm. It's best reserved for emergency personal defense.
Mercy flies towards a targeted ally, allowing her to reach them quickly and provide assistance in crucial moments.
Duration: 2 Seconds
Mercy radiates restorative power, bringing nearby dead allies back into the fight with full health.
- Mercy heals herself automatically for 25 HP/Second if she does not take damage for 3 seconds.
- Mercy may not get the offensive glory of some of the other heroes, but a well played Mercy can make a team powerful. Her abilities are straightforward but vital. Position her next to important defenders and tanks to make use of her healing staff, and damage boosting can really make a suppressing hero like Bastion powerful. Her ultimate is vital for reviving downed allies on the front lines, which keeps them back in action and not having to run a far distance back from their respawn points. Her pistol should only be used in extreme defensive emergencies.
A guardian angel to those who come under her care, Dr. Angela Ziegler is a peerless healer, a brilliant scientist, and a staunch advocate for peace.
Ziegler rose to become the head of surgery at a prominent Swiss hospital before pioneering a breakthrough in the field of applied nanobiology that radically improved the treatment of life-threatening illnesses and injuries. It was this expertise that attracted the attention of Overwatch.
Because her parents had been taken by war, Ziegler was opposed to the organization's militaristic approach to keeping global peace. Ultimately, she recognized that Overwatch offered her the opportunity to save lives on a much larger scale. As Overwatch's head of medical research, Angela sought to leverage her work for healing in frontline crises. The result was the Valkyrie swift-response suit, which Ziegler herself piloted on many Overwatch missions.
Despite her contributions to Overwatch, she was often at odds with her superiors and the organization's overarching aims. When Overwatch dissolved, Ziegler dedicated herself to helping those affected by war.
Though she spends most of her time caring for the broken and dispossessed in crisis areas around the world, Dr. Ziegler can be counted on to don her Valkyrie suit whenever innocents are imperiled.
