    Blizz has indicated they don't want to do too much with DoTs in Overwatch due to it being "unfun," so I'd be surprised to see more DoTs on a new character.

    I checked ingame and those canisters are the same ones that Soldier 76 uses. I guess the one with a rounded core that the regular canister is pointing to is a grenade form or something.

    It was also pointed out that the Brazillian twitter account posted a different image:

    This one lists "A. Amari" on the document, which likely means "Ana Amari", Sombra's real name (also, Pharah's mother).

    As a person who plays a huge DoT class (albeit in another Blizzard game)... DoTs are super fun :(

    Isn't she supposed to be dead?

    That's the theory. But then again, as we've seen with Widowmaker, Talon is able to do some messed up stuff to people and alter their physiology and such. Guess we're gonna find out.

    The idea of an old lady playable character is delightful.

    Very agree! Evolve was introducing some diverse mostly non-sexualized female characters and it was refreshing to see. Maybe Bliz makes more money by marketing being able to play a pair of shiny butts, but I'm hoping the direction behind chars like Zarya, continues.

    I don't have battlenet friends because I've never been into WOW, and Torchlight was my new Diablo, but now that TF3 is on there and I splurged on it, I need friends... Be my friend? KillaCliff is my name, cartoon fragging is my game.

    To Clarify, I'm KillaCliff#1494

    You need to tell us your battlenet id. It's probably something like KillaCliff#1234 or whatever. I would put mine in here, but I'm forgetting it at the moment.

    Ahhhh. I'm sorry you are correct it is KillaCliff#1494 - But let's get this straight, I'm the one and only despite this bizarre number system.

    Overwatch revelation.

    I was a damned good 20 FPS Tracer.

    60FPS I'm bloody unstoppable. This is actually amazing.

    Looks like she might be the DoT hero you've been looking for @primesuspect. I'm not sure what her alternate does when she hits Roadhog with it, but it looks like it may have been a DoT poison or something like that?

    I can't wait to try her. A combination of two of my favorite roles. Really interested to see details on her boosts. We don't know her ult yet, either.

    Alt might have been the same stun she hit McHighNoon with. (Edit: nope. uses a different ability than the Zzz one)

    Ult looks like the damage boost thing she hit Rein with.

  • UPSLynxUPSLynx :KAPPA: Redwood City, CA Icrontian

    Oh yeah, you're right - her Ult is the boost she gives to Reinhardt. You can see it briefly in the UI.

    I just noticed her "E" has a + and a - on the icon. So I'm assuming it's a buff/debuff depending on who it hits.

  • TiberiusLazarusTiberiusLazarus Icrontian

    Looks like it lowers/stops healing received on enemies (maybe healing boost on friendlies?). She throws it while roadhog is beginning to chug his pot. He gets a purple outline and above his info plate you see a purple "no healing"-esque symbol.

    Sounds pretty well-rounded.

    Ana's primary weapon is her Biotic Rifle. The gun fires long-range darts that heal her allies and deal damage to her foes. She's also equipped with a Biotic Grenade. As seen in her debut gameplay video above, Ana's Biotic Grenade, like her rifle, heals teammates and damages enemies caught in its small area of effect. For a brief period, the grenade also boosts all incoming healing for allies and prevents enemies from being healed — bad news for opposing Roadhog and Soldier: 76 players.
    She'll also be armed with a Sleep Dart, which can knock enemies unconscious for a brief period. As seen in the above, expect many an ultimate ability to be summarily shut down by quick-thinking Ana players.
    Ana's own ultimate, Nano Boost, sees her fire a dart at an ally and grant them faster movement, increased damage and improved resistance to incoming attacks.

  • ZanthianZanthian Mitey Worrier Icrontian

    Please tell me the debuff will work on Reaper ;) Ana looks like a really cool concept for a character. Looking forward to trying her out.
