Poor Mercy, she just can’t catch a break. After several changes to her Ultimate, Valkyrie, she STILL can’t seem to provide a satisfying AND balanced experience, so she’s being tested in Overwatch Public Test Realm…. again.

What’re the changes? Glad nobody asked. Here’s what’s Valkyrie is supposed to be like now:

  • No longer makes Resurrect instant
  • No longer grants a bonus charge of Resurrect
  • The speed boost that Guardian Angel receives has been decreased by 50%
  • Duration reduced from 20 seconds to 15 seconds

By comparison Junkrat got away scot free, with a slight nerf to his Concussion mine damage and effective range – damage drops over distance from the explosion itself).
