Li Li is a Ranged Support Hero from the Warcraft universe. The niece of legendary pandaren brewmaster Chen Stormstout, she enjoys exploring strange new places, meeting new people, and kicking bad guys in the face. A spunky pandaren, she has more than a few tricks up her sleeve.[1]

Background Edit

Born upon Shen-zin Su, the Wandering Isle, Li Li Stormstout led a somewhat uneventful life until she began reading the journals of her uncle Chen. Soon, nothing would sate her desire for adventure, exploration, and pestering adventurers around Halfhill.

Though Li Li’s father Chon Po didn’t approve of her wanderlust, in time she began to chronicle her explorations in a travel journal, which included a risky venture into a forbidden area of her island home. In time, Li Li chose to leave the Wandering Isle behind in order to start an adventure of her own, and was later joined by her uncle Chen. Together, they searched for (and discovered) their fabled homeland, Pandaria.

Gameplay Summary Edit

Li Li is a Ranged Support Hero with high sustained healing and decent damage output, capable of trading with many Heroes. Unlike Malfurion and Uther, she doesn't have any forms of hard control, she is one of the few Heroes capable of inflicting Blind, through Blinding Wind.

Overall, Li Li is best used as a supplemental Support for teams that have a dedicated healer, shining in long endgame teamfights where her low cooldown heals provide sustain for allies with the lowest health, allowing for more powerful healers to top the health of the rest of the team.

Strengths Edit

  • Easy Hero to pick up. Great for beginners.
  • Low Mana usage.
  • High sustained healing with low cooldown though Healing Brew.
    • Healing Brew has smart cast, automatically targeting allies.
  • Decent damage for a Support Hero, being capable of efficient trading.
  • Fast Feet allows her to escape tight situations, giving her good needed mobility.
    • Kung Fu Hustle immensively improves her efficiency, providing a massive power spike.
  • Has two great viable options for Heroic Abilities.

Weaknesses Edit

  • Very poor waveclear.
  • Cannot deal with teams that inflict high damage spikes, especially if solo healing.
  • Both Healing Brew and Jug of 1,000 Cups will automatically heal allies with the lowest health, which is not always useful.
    • Because of that, Li Li is innefective at preventing incoming damage and controlling.

Talent Builds Edit

  • Healing Build - focused on improving Healing Brew. Recommended if she is the only Support/Healer.
  • Damage Build - allows Li Li to trade even more efficiently with her opponents, improving both Blinding Wind and Cloud Serpent, allowing for both damage and crowd control. Recommended in dual Support compositions.
  • Cloud Serpent Build - focuses on improving Cloud Serpent for increased trading for both Li Li and her allies.

Tips Edit

  • Use Cloud Serpent on frontline Heroes, such as Warriors and Melee Assassins.
  • Use Blinding Wind solely to blind enemy heroes; avoid using it on PvE situations (i.e. Minions). Despite its range, relatively low cooldown and decent damage, it is not advised to waste it on waveclear.
  • When using push compositions, choose Jug of 1,000 Cups to keep the allies at maximum health.
    • Make sure to activate it preempetively when a big burst is expected from the enemy team.
      • However, don't use it too soon if the enemy teams has stun and silence cooldowns; since it is a semi-channeled ability, it can be interrupted, thus negativing its efficiency.
  • Use Water Dragon when the allies can cover the attack and preventing opponents from interrupting Li Li.

Matchups Edit

Pairings Edit

Li Li excels when paired with another Support/Healer. While she is capable of solo healing in some specific team compositions, she is best used as suplementary healer, which allows the player to focus on picking Talents to increase her damage and utility.

Cassiaplate
Most of the time, Cassia will be fairly resistant during skirmishes, due to her Trait – Avoidance. This means that she can handle herself for a bit but her health will be chipped away over time. What better way to shore up any bumps and nicks she gets along the way than a happy-to-heal Panda! Healing isn’t the only thing Li Li brings that can help Cassia out though – Blinding Wind also blinds their foes, making her a wonderful traveling companion who is more than willing to help Cassia explore the enemies weaknesses! Who’s ready for adventure?


Rehgarplate
Similarly to Uther, Rehgar is a strong healer, and has the right tools to complement Li Li's set. His Lightning Shield can be used in conjuntion with Cloud Serpent on Warriors and Melee Assassins to improve their trading ability, while Earthbind Totem works fantastically with Water Dragon, especially if Earthgrasp Totem is taken, allowing for a massive slow chain.


Utherplate
Li Li is at her best as a secondary healer, allowing her to take talents to increase her utility and damage. Having one of the strongest single target heals in the game, Uther greatly complements, with Divine Storm and Water Dragon shutting down opponents.


Effective against Edit

Dealing surprising damage for a Support, Li Li can effectively trade against Heroes that rely on basic attack damage, as she can negate their advances with Blinding Wind.

Samuroplate
Li Li can completely shutdown Samuro and his clones from Mirror Image with Blinding Wind should he try to gank her, especially if Mass Vortex is taken. However, this can be a double edged sword, as this will means that she won't be able to blind optimal opponents if they advance together (and behind) Samuro's clones.


Li Liplate
Since Varian is a melee Assassin that relies primarily on Basic Attacks to deal damage, Li Li has the ability to shut down Varian as he’s charging in by using Blinding Wind.


Effective foes Edit

Li Li struggles very much against burst damage and area damage, as Healing Brew will not always heal the optimal target (while another team member might be more in need of healing), thus reducing Li Li's efficiency to keep the right targets alive. This results in Li Li using her mana inefficiently, and not always healing the optimal target.

Chromieplate
Chromie's high spike damage and unpredictability of her Dragon's Breath landing can make hard for Li Li to keep her team alive.


Kael'thasplate
In a similar fashion to Chromie, Kael'thas burst damage and area damage makes very hard for Li Li to keep up. His Living Bomb is especially dangerous when spreading to more than one target, preventing Li Li from healing the right target.


Raynorplate
While Li Li does have an advantage against Basic Attackers thanks to Blinding Wind, Raynor's increased attack requires Li Li to frontline in order to blind him, which can easily make her vulnerable.


The Butcherplate
Despite being a Basic Attacker, The Butcher can easily focus on Li Li and shut her down with Lamb to the Slaughter, negating any chances for her to react. His Ruthless Onslaught can also interrupt both her Heroic Abilities, as they are channeled.
