Li-Ming is a wizard from the Diablo universe introduced in Heroes of the Storm.[1] She functions as a ranged assassin. Until January 4, 2017, Li-Ming could be obtained for free via the Nexus Challenge.

Background Edit

It’s a generally agreed upon fact of life among the denizens of Sanctuary that wizards and magical mayhem are never far apart. Although she understands people’s concerns, Li-Ming is entirely unapologetic for the destruction in her wake. She delights in unleashing devastating spells on her foes from afar, then teleporting away to frustrate her enemies’ attempts at striking back. Small minds may fear this kind of power, but Li-Ming wields the arcane forces of the universe with confidence and unmatched skill.

Matchups Edit

Pairings Edit

Aurielplate
Auriel can easily fill her energy with allies that have high burst and deal potent area damage. Li-Ming fulfills this role perfectly; with low cooldowns on her abilities, straightforward raw damage and powerful Critical Mass, she can provide energy to Auriel quite fast when under the effects of Bestow Hope.


Malfurionplate
Li-Ming's high explosive cooldowns makes her a valuable ally to Malfurion. Her lack of crowd control abilities is balanced with Malfurion's Entangling Roots, allowing her to dish out damage. In addition, her very low cooldowns become even lower when affected by Innervate.


Effective against Edit

Cassiaplate
Cassia becomes a lightning rod for long-range spell-slingers such as Li-Ming. Her Avoidance grants her amazing survivability against basic attacks, but spell casters could honestly care less. Since Cassia relies on closing gaps, hitting skill-shots, and pouncing on immobile or retreating Heroes, Li-Ming has all the tools to out-play and out-damage the lightning goddess.


Lúcioplate
Lúcio is fantastic for long, drawn out fights, but struggles against enemies who can quickly burst their targets down. If even one of Lúcio’s teammates gets too low, Li-Ming can quickly take advantage and kill his entire team before he has the time to bring their Health pools back up.
