Talent Builds Edit

Tips Edit

Matchups Edit

Pairings Edit

The Butcherplate
Boasting from the highest single target healing in the game, Lt. MoralesHealing Beam and Safeguard are perfect to keep The Butcher alive while he charges into the enemy team. Additionally, her Stim Drone makes The Butcher drastically stronger. Her entire kit fits The Butcher with perfection.


Gul'danplate
Similar to Malfurion, Lt. Morales’s high single-target healing keeps Gul'dan fueled and able to put out a lot of damage over a long period of time with little regard to managing his Mana.


Medivhplate
Lt. Morales’ healing potential is practically unmatched, but as most players have quickly learned, she is pretty easy to kill if caught out. Force of Will is great at mitigating incoming burst damage, and even the most dive-happy team will have to think twice about the resources they commit to killing Lt. Morales with Medivh by her side.


Effective against Edit

Effective foes Edit

The Butcherplate
While Lt. Morales is a powerful healer, she lacks the proper self-sustain and movement options to defend against aggressive gankers like The Butcher, who can easily isolate her from the rest of the team and pin her down with Lamb to the Slaughter.
