Medivh, the Last Guardian, is a ranged Support hero from the Warcraft universe. Under the influence of the demon lord Sargeras, Medivh opened the Dark Portal and unleashed the orcish Horde upon Azeroth. To atone for this sin, he rallied a new generation of heroes to stand against the Burning Legion during the Third War. In the Nexus, Medivh continues to lead his allies to greatness. Now, he takes his place amongst the legends.

Medivh is a Support who can negate burst damage and allow his allies to teleport.

Background[edit | edit source]

Warcraft This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft universe.

Magus or Magna Medivh was the last Guardian of Tirisfal, an ancient line of protectors bestowed with great powers to do battle with the agents of the Burning Legion. He was corrupted even before birth, and possessed by the spirit of the demonlord Sargeras who used Medivh in his plan to conquer Azeroth. Medivh contacted the orcish warlock, Gul'dan, and together they opened the Dark Portal, which allowed the Burning Legion to begin its destruction of Azeroth. He was slain shortly after by a party led by one of his friends, Lothar.

Shortly before the beginning of the Third War, Medivh returned as a mysterious prophet, manipulating events in order to arrange the formation of a last-ditch alliance between the mortal races on Kalimdor, guiding them to victory at the Battle of Mount Hyjal.

The prophet's name means "keeper of secrets" in Thalassian. He possessed Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian, which is currently wielded by his former apprentice, Khadgar.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Medivh is a ranged Support with an exceptional amount of utility, which makes him one of the most flexible and adaptable Heroes in the game. His Force of Will possesses incredible synergy with Warriors and melee Assassins, in particular, Portal can be used to execute deadly ganks or tricky escape manoeuvres. One of Medivh's greatest strengths is his ability to scout the battlefield with his Raven Form. Doing so gathers valuable information for his team, which allows them to always be one step ahead of their opponents. With all the utility Medivh provides, he also requires a lot of game knowledge and experience to unleash his full potential.

  • Exceptional scouting capabilities
  • Synergises extremely well with melee Assassins and Bruisers
  • Superior utility

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]
