As the Archangel of Justice, Tyrael participated in the Great Conflict, and his exploits in battle became the stuff of legend. According to Imperius, he and Tyrael saved each other's lives countless times during the conflict. Off the battlefield, he administered the Courts of Justice.
Tyrael is a very mobile Warrior with Bruiser-oriented gameplay, capable of getting in and out of combat very quickly. He also brings a lot of utility to the table, featuring shielding for his allies, as well having a flexible talent tree that allows him to adapt to a lot of circumstances.
Overall, he excels at either initiating or following up on team fights, as well picking off isolated enemies. Because of this, he shines in aggressive team compositions, especially dive-oriented ones. He is at his best as a secondary Warrior.
While El'Druin's Might is active, both Tyrael and El'druin deal 15 damage per second to nearby enemies. For 3 seconds after teleporting, Tyrael continues to deal this damage and the damage amount is increased by 100%.
Tyrael's abilities are great at both engaging and disengaging, which is useful to make The Butcher more slippery and less susceptible to focus fire. El'druin's Might and Judgement are particularly powerful to lock on opponents and both open opportunities as well as follow up for Ruthless Onslaught.
Tyrael excels at diving in the backline, which is the midterm where Auriel resides. El'druin's Might is very dangerous due its teleport and slow functions, allowing Tyrael to stick on Auriel similarly to Tracer and Zeratul, while at the same time Smite allows opponents to chase Auriel more easily. His Judgement is potentially fatal as it can and will give Tyrael's allies enough time to follow up after the stun; on the other hand, Auriel can cancel his charge with Crystal Aegis.
With tired eyes the newly appointed High Seraph Tyrael looked across Sanctuary... after the destruction of the High Heavens, this world was the last bastion against Imperius's wrath.
Each archangel's armor is a manifestation of their spirit. While his appearance had changed during his battles within the Nexus, his dedication to justice remained steadfast.
Of all the Aspects of Sin, Tyrael, the Lord of Pride, is the most ruthless. His every action and every thought serves only to fulfill the desires of his true master; himself.
