Medivh is a Ranged Specialist Hero from the Warcraft universe. He was released during the week of June 14, 2016.[1]

Background Edit

Under the influence of the demon lord Sargeras, Medivh opened the Dark Portal and unleashed the orcish Horde upon Azeroth. To atone for this sin, he rallied a new generation of heroes to stand against the Burning Legion during the Third War. In the Nexus, Medivh continues to lead his allies to greatness. He observes the battle from up high in Raven Form, then swoops down and uses shields and portals to turn the tide of battle. Now, he takes his place amongst the legends.

Tips Edit

Matchups Edit

Pairings Edit

Arthasplate
No longer will Warriors have difficulty engaging with the enemy team’s back-line thanks to Dark Portal. The terrifying damage and lockdown of Arthas combined with Medivh’s Dark Portals can instantly ruin a safe Assassin’s day.

Chromieplate
The scouting and positional information gained from Medivh’s Raven Form helps Chromie stay one step ahead of her enemies, landing skillshots with ease even while enemies hide behind walls and structures.

Lt. Moralesplate
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

Valeeraplate
Medivh’s ability to save Valeera’s assassination targets via Portals and Force of Will makes the rogue’s job a lot more difficult, and Raven Form combined with Dust of Appearance can ruin some attempted ganks before they even happen.


Effective foes Edit

Jainaplate
Large area of effect damage abilities can be a major nuisance for Medivh to deal with. With the option of using Force of Will on multiple allies coming online so late (level 16), a few well-placed Blizzards from Jaina in the heat of battle will have him scrambling to figure out who to save.

Sylvanasplate
The perfect Portal engage can be completely nullified if your team is unable to follow up immediately. The silence and crowd control effects of Sylvanas’ Heroic abilities are very dangerous against teams looking to make good use of portals.

Vallaplate
Any hero that brings consistent, sustained damage will often put on more pressure than Medivh can handle. With Valla’s constant barrage of abilities and auto-attacks, Medivh will struggle to keep his team – and himself - alive.
