Today's Overwatch update brings Mercy changes and Moira

November 16, 2017 1 min read

Just in time for this weekend's free-play event, Blizzard has added the support hero Moira to Overwatchon PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One along with some much-appreciated adjustments to Mercy.

With this update, Mercy isn't quite as free to cast Resurrect -- there's now a cast time of 1.75 seconds (up from 0 seconds!), her movement speed drops by 75 percent while casting, and she can be interrupted by hacks, stuns, and knock-backs. To make up for this, Mercy can instantly Resurrect and move at her normal speed while casting whenever her Valkyrie ultimate ability is in play.

As for Moira, I didn't get to try her out on the PTR so I'm eager to see how she fares in the live game. Keep in mind, though, she won't be usable in Competitive Play during her debut week (as per usual).

Here are the full patch notes:
