Auriel, the Archangel of Hope, is a ranged Healer Hero from the Diablo franchise. It is through the archangel Auriel that the power of hope flows into the fabric of creation. Her eternal light illuminates even the darkest souls. Seeking harmony in all things, she is a mediator, a counselor, and when the need arises, a fearless warrior.

Auriel is a Healer who excels when paired with a high-octane damage dealer.

Background[]

Diablo (franchise) This section concerns content exclusive to Diablo universe.

Auriel, The Archangeland Aspect of Hope, is one of the five Angel Aspects, and a member of the Angiris Council who was born from one of the virtues of the great titan Anu at the beginning of time. She first appears in The Veiled Prophet, where she votes in favor of saving Sanctuary and humanity. She resides in the Gardens of Hope in the High Heavens. When Sanctuary was discovered, she was its most ardent defender and opposed Imperius who wanted to destroy it. She wanted to uphold the inhabitants' right to life and wanted to see them grow and mature. She seems compassionate towards others and respects life.

Gameplay[]

Auriel is an aggressive Ranged Healer who gains power from her allies.

Bestowing Hope[]

Auriel revolves around her Trait, Bestow Hope. Smart use of it provides Auriel with constant fuel for her healing. While it's generally safest to leave your trait on your best sustained-damage Ranged Assassin, sometimes it's right to switch to another ally right as they engage, gaining a lot of Energy from their initial burst. For example, a Gul'dan will usually give lots of Energy over time, but the initial impact of Jaina can immediately fill your Energy to start the fight.

Hero Synergy[]

Auriel works best with heroes capable of consistent damage, letting her steadily maintain Energy. Good heroes include Valla, Raynor, Gul'dan, and Fenix. Because of Ray of Heaven's small area of effect, Auriel also pairs with teams that want to group in close.

Strengths[]

Weaknesses[]

  • Poor sustained healing
  • Low mobility
  • Needs an ally nearby
  • Little to no out of combat healing
  • Relies on terrain to use Detainment Strike most effectively
