Biiig changes coming to Mercy. Dev team believes her current method of "hiding" when the team is dieing to then get that big rez off via her ult is not very fun and kinda against how she should be played. So here's quick summary:

  • Resurrect is no longer her ultimate. It'll now be a normal ability with a 20 second cooldown. It'll resurrect only one player.
  • Ultimate will be Valkyrie. Mercy gains flight, gun will do more damage, healing/boost beam can attach to multiple players during this time. Will last 20 seconds and resurrect will instantly refresh and only be 10 seconds cooldown during that time.

As someone who's played a fair bit of Mercy, I like these changes. Even as the Mercy player, I never liked having my ultimate and then waiting to use it for that "big rez" when rezing even one player could be helpful during a fight. I especially hated the idea of hiding when my team is dieing to get that big rez off. It just wasn't fun, playing as Mercy and when playing against her. Rezzing players is a fun ability and being able to do it on a normal ability cooldown is more fun to me. I like the idea of helping out a player turn around a duel they might've lost or something similar. The new ultimate I'm a little more "meh" on. Kinda feels like they're just throwing out an idea and seeing if it sticks. The multiple beams idea is neat but other than that it doesn't feel very defining. Just feels like you're suping her up for a bit but I'm not sure how defining it is. This is all PTR stuff though so obviously it can all change at anytime. I hope they make up a better ult but I do like the resurrect changes.
