* CombatMedic: ''Regrowth'' by itself is a very slow heal-over-time. Malfurion needs to actively hit enemy heroes with ''Moonfire'' to give his team bursts of healing. He also can choose a few offensive talents, which greatly increase his damage potential.
* CompositeCharacter: Malfurion's kit is largely based on the Keeper of the Grove hero unit from ''Warcraft III''. His kit and certain talents also make him a mix between the Balance and Restoration druid specializations from ''World of Warcraft''.



* SimpleYetAwesome: One of the entry-level, cheap Healer for a mere 2000 gold, he comes packed with potent abilities for newbies and veterans alike. A heal, a nuke, and most dangerously a large area root that can catch multiple enemies in it.

* SimpleYetAwesome: Compared to other Heroics in the game, both of her Heroics don't look very interesting when looking at them in an isolated case. ''Scarlet Aegis'' is an AreaOfEffect heal that grants Armor and ''Zeal''; ''Divine Reckoning'' just damages all enemies in an area. However, in conjunction with her ''Zeal'' mechanic, both of her Heroics are far more impressive and effective, allowing Whitemane to grant her entire team mass protection and/or strong bursts of healing.

Medivh is a powerful ranged Support who specializes in assisting his teammates in non-healing ways and crowd-controlling enemies. Medivh's trait is ''Raven Form'', which replaces his mount with an invulnerable raven that can fly over the terrain. His basic abilities are ''Arcane Rift'', a short-ranged projectile that pierces enemies and deals a small amount of damage, and has its cooldown reduced and mana refunded if it strikes an enemy hero. Medivh also has a baseline quest, ''The Master's Touch'', which drastically increases the damage and cooldown reduction of ''Arcane Rift'' after hitting 40 heroes without dying. ''Force of Will'' grants an impenetrable barrier to an ally, preventing all damage done to them for a short time and healing them for a percentage of the damage blocked. ''Portal'' creates a pair of connected portals that allies can travel between.\\

* AchillesHeel: Whitemane's heals are largely ineffective and inefficient if she stays out of combat, and only heal with ''Zeal'' if she deals damage to ''heroes''. This puts Whitemane in constant danger in team fights, which is more problematic because she lacks escapes or any basic form of crowd control effects besides ''Inquisition'', which roots her in place.

* CombatMedic: Whitemane is based on a Discipline priest in ''World of Warcraft'', which makes her a terrible healer if she only relies on ''Desperate Plea'' to heal allies. ''Desperate Plea'' discourages her to spam the ability, as Whitemane's increasing mana costs for it will quickly drain her mana. Instead, ''Zeal'' incites Whitemane to get into the thick of fights. She can pump out decent damage through ''Inquisition'' and poke handily with ''Searing Lash'', fueling her healing.

* {{Combos}}: Inherently based around it - ''Desperate Plea'' is a pretty ineffectual heal if she doesn't proceed to soon make use of the ''Zeal'' buff it provides by damaging the enemy team with ''Inquisition'' or ''Searing Lash''.
** Whitemane will be pretty regularly casting ''Searing Lash'' on enemy heroes and then immediately slowly them with ''Inquisition'' to prevent them from dodging the second lash.

* GlassCannon: Whitemane can turn herself into one with ''Fanatical Power'', which grants her temporarily massive Spell Power at the cost of Armor. Together with other talents, at level 20, Whitemane is able to deal ''over 5000 damage'' with her abilities to one target, which theoretically can kill every Assassin and Healer in the game.

While Anduin only grants his allies Protected instead of Invulnerability, he also heals them, but like the old ''Sanctification'', he needs to channel the ability and can be interrupted by any Daze, Stun or Silence effect.

Tyrande is a ranged Healer who mixes healing with damaging ability. Her trait is ''Hunter's Mark'', which allows her to briefly mark any enemy hero, [[DamageIncreasingDebuff amplifying the damage they receive]]. Her first ability is ''Light of Elune'', which heals herself or an ally and has two charges that share a single cooldown. Each Basic Attack or ability that hits an enemy lowers the cooldown. ''Sentinel'' emits a spirit owl that has infinite range and scouts the area it flies through, damaging and revealing the first hero it hits. Her final basic ability, ''Lunar Flare'', is an arrow that lands after a delay, stunning all enemies in a small area.\\

Brightwing is a ranged Healer based around global mobility and sustained healing.

It can also be activated to release a pulse that cleanses debuffs from allies. Her actives include ''Arcane Flare'', an [=AoE=] blast that does more damage at the center and casts a free ''Soothing Mist'' heal if it lands, ''Polymorph'', a powerful point-and-click disable [[BalefulPolymorph that turns an enemy into a harmless critter for a few seconds]], and ''Pixie Dust'', a buff that speeds up an ally and reduces spell damage they take.\\

* {{Adorkable}}: Anduin is excited to see different kinds of magic he has never seen before, like Li-Ming's arcane magic or Deckard's horadric cube, and acts awkwardly shy and babbles around Lunara, Orphea and Nova.
* AllLovingHero: Anduin is a pacifist who tries to see the best in almost anyone. Besides racists like Garrosh, and enemies to all life like the Legion and the Scourge, there is next to no one he wouldn't be able to get along with.
* ArmorIsUseless: He's wearing armor on his upper body, but is no more tanky for it. Maybe his enemies just know to aim for the [[HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic face]] and legs?

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Anduin is a ReluctantWarrior and a NiceGuy who wishes for peace, but he absolutely doesn't tolerate the Legion or the Scourge.
* BigDamnHeroes: ''Leap of Faith'' lets him potentially pull one of these off, yanking an ally out of a bad spot and into safety. Doubly so if he pulls an ally out of a crowd control effect.
%%Everybody breaks the fourth wall in poke quotes. It's not noteworthy in Anduin's case, so it doesn't need to be listed.
* CombatMedic: While he's heavily healing-based, his talents encourage him to damage enemies for bonuses and he has an entire build path based around his basic attacks.
* CompositeCharacter: Anduin's outfit is a mix between the priest robes he wears in ''Legion'' and the heavy plated armor he wears in ''Battle for Azeroth''.
* ConstantlyCurious: He's always inquiring about everyone around him. For a few examples, he asks both Xul and Deckard if he can study their magics after the fight, is intrigued by technology like Probius and Lucio's music, and embarrasses himself staring at Lunara because he's never talked to a dryad before.
* ContinuityNod: Anduin is very confused to see Illidan in the Nexus, since Illidan became Sargeras' jailer at the end of ''Legion''.
* CoolSword: He wields Shalamayne like his father, now infused with the Holy Light. That said, he never actually uses it to hit someone directly with it.
* DeadpanSnarker: Very rarely considering his kind nature, but he does bite back against certain heroes.

* DesperationAttack: Anduin's ''Desperate Prayer'' talent lets him instantly heal an ally for a massive amount of health, but self-stuns for two seconds and also puts ''Flash Heal'' on a lengthy cooldown. Use it wisely.
* DreamworksFace: He has a hilariously exaggerated one on his Neo-President skin.
* EnemyMine: Anduin tries to remind Horde heroes that other threats are above the conflict between the Alliance and the Horde.
-->'''Anduin:''' Put your grievances aside. We have a common enemy to deal with. ''Again''.
* {{Foil}}:
** Anduin is a Holy priest, while Whitemane is a Discipline priest. Both are {{Combat Medic}}s though and have access to a root. Both possess heroics that both heal and protect their team (''Holy Word: Salvation'' and ''Scarlet Aegis'') and an AreaOfEffect damage heroic (''Lightbomb'' and ''Divine Reckoning'').
** ''Divine Star'' is basically a less straightforward version of Uther's ''Wave of Light''.
** ''Holy Word: Salvation'' bears a resemblance to Tyrael's old ''Sanctification''. While Anduin only grants his allies Protected instead of Invulnerability, he also heals them, but like the old ''Sanctification'', he needs to channel the ability and can be interrupted by any Daze, Stun or Silence effect.

* HerdHittingAttack: ''Divine Star'' and ''Lightbomb'' are intended to hit multiple enemies and Anduin has access to talents like ''Holy Nova''.
* HolyHandGrenade: ''Lightbomb'', of course. ''Divine Star'' can also be talented to explode when Anduin catches it.
* ImmortalityField: ''Holy Word: Salvation'' makes all allies around Anduin immune to damage while also healing them.
* ImprobableAge: He's only 18 and is one of the most talented priests in the world as well as a respected leader of the Alliance.
* InsistentTerminology: When Johanna tries to get a rise out of him while calling him "paladin", he clarifies that he's actually just a priest... that happens to wear armor and carry a sword. [[DistinctionWithoutADifference By the time he finishes his sentence he decides to concede the point]].
* ItsPersonal: He shows visible anger towards Gul'dan, who has caused much war and strife and whose doppelganger from another universe [[YouKilledMyFather killed Anduin's father, Varian.]]
* LampshadeHanging: As his quote under EnemyMine above shows, he is ''well'' aware of how often the Alliance and the Horde have been forced to put aside their differences and work together against a greater threat.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Anduin's theme in ''Heroes'' is a remix of his theme from ''World of Warcraft'', which itself has elements of both Varian's theme and the theme of Stormwind.
* LightEmUp: All of his abilities involve this trope in some form.
* MistakenIdentity:
** Both Nova and Raynor think that Anduin is Valerian Mengsk, which makes sense considering they share a voice actor and look pretty similar.
** Anduin himself thinks the zerg are a new form of silithid and the protoss are heavily corrupted draenei.
* MyGreatestSecondChance: Anduin has a unique line if he casts ''Leap of Faith'' on Varian, proclaiming that he'll save his father, which he could not when his father died in ''Legion''.
* MythologyGag:
** ''Flash Heal'' requires a brief channel, just like how it works in ''World of Warcraft''.[[labelnote:*]]Funnily enough, this version is one of the longer-casting main heals by virtue of not being instant, whereas the [=WoW=] version is comparatively, well, a flash.[[/labelnote]] If Anduin tries to move before the cast is finished, it even makes the same 'spell failed' sound effect ''World of Warcraft'' does.
** The way Anduin casts ''Holy Word: Salvation'' is a reference of his usage of it in the ''Battle for Azeroth'' cinematic. He even says the same line he said in the cinematic.
--->'''Anduin:''' Stand as one!
** As the Priest representative of ''VideoGame/HearthstoneHeroesOfWarcraft'', Anduin naturally also makes some references to it, like how he is CastingAShadow there despite clearly being a Holy priest, or how he uses his opponent's own minions to beat them to death. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Or how he is out of cards.]]

[[folder:Brightwing, Faerie Dragon]]
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Amber Hood (English), Dorothée Pousséo (French)
[[quoteright:206:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/brightwing.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:206:''"Fight time!"'']]

Brightwing is a faerie dragon, a race of playful sprite-like creatures who typically live in forests inhabited by the night elves. Despite her cutesy looks and small frame, she has a frightening amount of power. She is an OriginalGeneration character, who represents the faerie dragon unit from ''Warcraft III''.\\
\\
Brightwing is a ranged Healer based around global mobility and sustained healing. Her ''Soothing Mist'' trait causes her to passively emit a healing pulse every few seconds, healing herself and nearby allies. It can also be activated to release a pulse that cleanses debuffs from allies. Her actives include ''Arcane Flare'', an [=AoE=] blast that does more damage at the center and casts a free ''Soothing Mist'' heal if it lands, ''Polymorph'', a powerful point-and-click disable [[BalefulPolymorph that turns an enemy into a harmless critter for a few seconds]], and ''Pixie Dust'', a buff that speeds up an ally and reduces spell damage they take.\\
\\
Her first Heroic ability, ''Emerald Wind'', generates a massive whirlwind around her that damages and knocks back enemies. Her second Heroic ability, ''Blink Heal'', stores up to two charges that she can consume to teleport a short distance to an ally, healing them in the process.\\
\\
Brightwing cannot mount. Instead, she can ''Phase Shift'' to an ally hero anywhere on the battlefield on a long cooldown, healing them for a percentage of their maximum health on arrival.\\
\\
Her current skins are Fey Dragon Brightwing, [[PrettyButterflies Monarch Brightwing]], [[ManiacMonkeys Luxorian Monkey Brightwing]], and Bewitching Brightwing.

[[caption-width-right:206:''"For the Alliance above all!"'']]
Anduin Wrynn is the son of King Varian, and the current High King of the Alliance. Unlike his brash and decisive father, Anduin is renowned for his patience and skills in diplomacy. Where Varian is a warrior, Anduin instead sought the path of the Holy Light, under the tutelage of Velen the Prophet. He strives for peace between the nations of Azeroth above all else. He played a leading role in stopping Garrosh Hellscream from destroying the world, a battle which nearly cost Anduin his life. Despite this, Anduin still saved Garrosh while he was captive and on trial, preventing him from eating poisoned food.\\
\\
In the years following this, Varian would tragically fall defending Azeroth from the Burning Legion. Anduin was thus crowned High King of the Alliance and took up his father's sword, Shalamayne. Unfortunately, Anduin's hopes for peace were dashed when Sylvanas Windrunner, now Warchief of the Horde, burned Teldrassil to the ground. Though he now leads the armies of the Alliance across all of Azeroth, Anduin's ultimate goal is to put an end to the bloodshed he abhors, even if it means getting his hands dirty.\\
\\
Anduin is a ranged Healer based on a Holy priest from ''World of Warcraft''. His trait is ''Leap of Faith'', which can be activated to pull an ally to Anduin's location. His basic abilities include ''Flash Heal'', a heal on a short channel and very short cooldown; ''Divine Star'', a heavenly bolt that damages enemies then returns to Anduin and heals allies; and ''Chastise'', a swell of light that damages and roots the first enemy hero hit.\\
\\
His first heroic is ''Holy Word: Salvation'', which surrounds Anduin in a holy field that rapidly heals nearby allies and Protects them from all damage. His second heroic is ''Lightbomb'', which imbues an ally with the Light, causing them to damage and stun nearby enemies after a delay then gain a shield that scales based on how many enemies were hit.\\
\\
His current skin is Neo-President Anduin.
----
* {{Adorkable}}: Anduin is excited to see different kinds of magic he has never seen before, like Li-Ming's arcane magic or Deckard's horadric cube, and acts awkwardly shy and babbles around Lunara, Orphea and Nova.
* AllLovingHero: Anduin is a pacifist who tries to see the best in almost anyone. Besides racists like Garrosh, and enemies to all life like the Legion and the Scourge, there is next to no one he wouldn't be able to get along with.
* ArmorIsUseless: He's wearing armor on his upper body, but is no more tanky for it. Maybe his enemies just know to aim for the [[HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic face]] and legs?
* BarrierWarrior: Can protect his entire team with ''Holy Word: Salvation'', a single person with ''Lightbomb'' or himself with talents like ''Power Word: Shield''.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Anduin is a ReluctantWarrior and a NiceGuy who wishes for peace, but he absolutely doesn't tolerate the Legion or the Scourge.
* BigDamnHeroes: ''Leap of Faith'' lets him potentially pull one of these off, yanking an ally out of a bad spot and into safety. Doubly so if he pulls an ally out of a crowd control effect.
%%Everybody breaks the fourth wall in poke quotes. It's not noteworthy in Anduin's case, so it doesn't need to be listed.
* CombatMedic: While he's heavily healing-based, his talents encourage him to damage enemies for bonuses and he has an entire build path based around his basic attacks.
* CompositeCharacter: Anduin's outfit is a mix between the priest robes he wears in ''Legion'' and the heavy plated armor he wears in ''Battle for Azeroth''.
* ConstantlyCurious: He's always inquiring about everyone around him. For a few examples, he asks both Xul and Deckard if he can study their magics after the fight, is intrigued by technology like Probius and Lucio's music, and embarrasses himself staring at Lunara because he's never talked to a dryad before.
* ContinuityNod: Anduin is very confused to see Illidan in the Nexus, since Illidan became Sargeras' jailer at the end of ''Legion''.
* CoolSword: He wields Shalamayne like his father, now infused with the Holy Light. That said, he never actually uses it to hit someone directly with it.
* DeadpanSnarker: Very rarely considering his kind nature, but he does bite back against certain heroes.
-->'''Dreadlord Jaina:''' The boy king. The Legion does not spare children.\\
'''Anduin:''' Strong words from one whose master is now imprisoned. Or were you unaware, demon?

-->'''Ragnaros:''' ARE YOU PREPARED TO SERVE ME, MORTAL?\\
'''Anduin:''' [[LittleNo No.]]
* DesperationAttack: Anduin's ''Desperate Prayer'' talent lets him instantly heal an ally for a massive amount of health, but self-stuns for two seconds and also puts ''Flash Heal'' on a lengthy cooldown. Use it wisely.
* DreamworksFace: He has a hilariously exaggerated one on his Neo-President skin.
* EnemyMine: Anduin tries to remind Horde heroes that other threats are above the conflict between the Alliance and the Horde.
-->'''Anduin:''' Put your grievances aside. We have a common enemy to deal with. ''Again''.
* {{Foil}}:
** Anduin is a Holy priest, while Whitemane is a Discipline priest. Both are {{Combat Medic}}s though and have access to a root. Both possess heroics that both heal and protect their team (''Holy Word: Salvation'' and ''Scarlet Aegis'') and an AreaOfEffect damage heroic (''Lightbomb'' and ''Divine Reckoning'').
** ''Divine Star'' is basically a less straightforward version of Uther's ''Wave of Light''.
** ''Holy Word: Salvation'' bears a resemblance to Tyrael's old ''Sanctification''. While Anduin only grants his allies Protected instead of Invulnerability, he also heals them, but like the old ''Sanctification'', he needs to channel the ability and can be interrupted by any Daze, Stun or Silence effect.
* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic: Subverted. It might look like he's not wearing headgear, but...
-->'''Anduin:''' Mhh? Oh! Actually, I am still wearing the helmet, it’s just transmogrified to “hidden.”
* HerdHittingAttack: ''Divine Star'' and ''Lightbomb'' are intended to hit multiple enemies and Anduin has access to talents like ''Holy Nova''.
* HolyHandGrenade: ''Lightbomb'', of course. ''Divine Star'' can also be talented to explode when Anduin catches it.
* ImmortalityField: ''Holy Word: Salvation'' makes all allies around Anduin immune to damage while also healing them.
* ImprobableAge: He's only 18 and is one of the most talented priests in the world as well as a respected leader of the Alliance.
* InsistentTerminology: When Johanna tries to get a rise out of him while calling him "paladin", he clarifies that he's actually just a priest... that happens to wear armor and carry a sword. [[DistinctionWithoutADifference By the time he finishes his sentence he decides to concede the point]].
* ItsPersonal: He shows visible anger towards Gul'dan, who has caused much war and strife and whose doppelganger from another universe [[YouKilledMyFather killed Anduin's father, Varian.]]
* LampshadeHanging: As his quote under EnemyMine above shows, he is ''well'' aware of how often the Alliance and the Horde have been forced to put aside their differences and work together against a greater threat.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Anduin's theme in ''Heroes'' is a remix of his theme from ''World of Warcraft'', which itself has elements of both Varian's theme and the theme of Stormwind.
* LightEmUp: All of his abilities involve this trope in some form.
* MistakenIdentity:
** Both Nova and Raynor think that Anduin is Valerian Mengsk, which makes sense considering they share a voice actor and look pretty similar.
** Anduin himself thinks the zerg are a new form of silithid and the protoss are heavily corrupted draenei.
* MyGreatestSecondChance: Anduin has a unique line if he casts ''Leap of Faith'' on Varian, proclaiming that he'll save his father, which he could not when his father died in ''Legion''.
* MythologyGag:
** ''Flash Heal'' requires a brief channel, just like how it works in ''World of Warcraft''.[[labelnote:*]]Funnily enough, this version is one of the longer-casting main heals by virtue of not being instant, whereas the [=WoW=] version is comparatively, well, a flash.[[/labelnote]] If Anduin tries to move before the cast is finished, it even makes the same 'spell failed' sound effect ''World of Warcraft'' does.
** The way Anduin casts ''Holy Word: Salvation'' is a reference of his usage of it in the ''Battle for Azeroth'' cinematic. He even says the same line he said in the cinematic.
--->'''Anduin:''' Stand as one!
** As the Priest representative of ''VideoGame/HearthstoneHeroesOfWarcraft'', Anduin naturally also makes some references to it, like how he is CastingAShadow there despite clearly being a Holy priest, or how he uses his opponent's own minions to beat them to death. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Or how he is out of cards.]]
** Anduin references the common occurence when Shadow priests in ''World of Warcraft'' use Mind Control to control a player and make them run off the edge of a high place to kill them.
* NiceGuy: He's quite polite to most heroes, especially other prominent Alliance members. He's also one of the few heroes with overall positive dialogues with Murky and ''The Butcher'', and is mostly just curious about allies he doesn't understand.
* NonIndicativeName: Discussed in one of his poke quotes, regarding ''Leap of Faith''.

--->'''Anduin:''' There will be peace. One day. At least I think there will. How many [=WoW=] expansions are left again? ([[{{Beat}} pause]]) Oh… Ohh. Oh. Well. Well then.
listed.



* ContinuityNod: Anduin is very confused to see Illidan in the Nexus, since Illidan became Sargeras' jailer at the end of ''Legion''.



* DeadpanSnarker: Very rarely, considering his kind nature, but he does bite back against some people he doesn't like.
** When Dreadlord Jaina and Anduin are on the same team, Dreadlord Jaina tries to belittle Anduin.
--->'''Dreadlord Jaina:''' The boy king. The Legion does not spare children.\\

** Ragnaros is another being Anduin doesn't like, since all Ragnaros wants to do is to consume everything and burn in down.

* MechanicallyUnusualClass: Anduin's main healing ability is different from other healers, as it has a channel time that requires Anduin to stand still for a moment. The only other ability, besides ''Holy Word: Salvation'', that requires the Healer to stand still to heal is Whitemane's talented version of ''Inquisition'', ''Clemency'', which is not her main source of healing.



** Anduin jokes in one StopPokingMe line that "Allied Race" [[note]]In ''Battle for Azeroth'', Blizzard have made alternate versions of the main races playable, like Kul Tiran humans and Zandalari trolls.[[/note]] is [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment a redundant term]] for Alliance races.
** Like Creator/ChrisMetzen, Anduin was led to believe that Falstad is dead.
** Anduin is very confused to see Illidan in the Nexus, since Illidan at the end of ''Legion'' becomes Sargeras' jailer.
** Anduin is a bit baffled to see a human witchdoctor (Nazeebo), a good necromancer (Xul) and a demon hunter with normal eyes (Valla), comparing the ''Diablo'' heroes to the ''Warcraft'' classes.
** Anduin makes a punny joke how he, Uther, Lt. Morales, Auriel and Lúcio walk into a bar where the bartender tells them that he wants "no Support groups". The joke doesn't work as well anymore, since Blizzard have split the former Support class into "Healer" and "Support".



* SwordBeam: Anduin [[FullContactMagic swings his sword]] around when he uses ''Divine Star''.

* EnemyMine: Anduin tries to remind Horde heroes that other threats are above the conflict between the Alliance and the Horde.
-->'''Anduin:''' Put your grievances aside. We have a common enemy to deal with. ''Again''.



** As the Priest representative of ''VideoGame/HearthstoneHeroesOfWarcraft'', Anduin naturally also makes some references to it, like how he is CastingAShadow there despite clearly being a Holy priest, or how he uses his opponent's own minions to beat them to death. Or how he is out of cards.

Added DiffLines:

* UndyingLoyalty: To the Alliance, but especially to his and his father's friends.
** To Greymane, Anduin's closest adviser after he became king, who has become very protective towards Anduin after Varian's death.
--->'''Greymane:''' If I am to accept help, then I am glad it comes from you.\\
'''Anduin:''' And as long as I live, I shall gladly give it.
** To Valeera, Anduin's father's gladiator partner. After she became Varian's adviser, she swore loyalty to solely Varian and Anduin, and she became Anduin's secret spy after his coronation.
** To Jaina, his HonoraryAunt.
--->'''Anduin:''' I've got your back, Jaina. Always will.
