Brigitte Lindholm

The Ardent Squire

Brigette Lindholm grew up on stories of both the heroes who lead the charge into battle, as well as those who supported them behind the scenes. With an aptitude for Engineering not unlike her father's, many expected her to follow in her father's footsteps. To the surprise of everyone, however, Brigette requested to be the squire of a rather... eccentric champion; the man who gave Brigitte her name, Reinhardt. While Reinhardt would jump headfirst into danger, Brigette was left to pick up his pieces, and began to realise that she could do much more than repair his armor. With Torbjorn's ingenuity and Reindardt's gallantry instilled in her, Brigitte Lindholm has taken up arms to defend those in need of protection.

Brigette is a healer-tank hybrid, bridging the gap between warrior and support, as she focused on taking hits for her teammates while keeping them fit to remain in the fight. With a trait that allows overhealing - that is, granting health beyond one's maximum - Brigette may pre-emptively prepare her allies for the fight ahead. Rocket Flail is a simple ability, yet its passive - alongside the first talent of the player's choosing - allow Brigette to shine in an area of the player's discretion. Repair Pack allows a solid healing ability that allies can pick up as needed, while barrier allows a more immediate damage mitigation, furthering this hero's desire to be in the forefront, protecting those who cannot protect themselves. As a multi-class hero, the player may choose talents that benefit Brigette's survivabilty in an effort to become one who soaks damage for her squishier allies, or perhaps talents that further her supportive role, allowing multiple methods to both heal and shield her allies.

Since the previous comments have just been complaints about previous wordings and talent names that clearly make no difference, i suppose i'll be the first to actually say this is a really good concept. Hybrid heroes that allow various gameplay based on enemy / ally compositions are always fun to play. My only suggestion would be to increase the trait's maximum percent value up, as 10% isn't really that effective, especially seeing as how her only baseline heal is on a 12 second cooldown. Additionally, i suggest lowering the cooldown of Repair Pack so it has better synergy with her trait.

Eeeeeeem....... The trait makes no sense. If she can give you armor up to 10% of your health this means that even a murky can get an instant 75 armor which is the maximum anyways. This is not only extremely op but your wording makes no sense. You seem to have problems understanding how armor works. Also you don't use her inspire passive from ow which would have been much better than than the wording mess you have here

Regarding "armor", fixed, thanks! Was always meant to be shielding, just typed the wrong word.

And I didn't want to copy-paste her from OW into HotS, that's not as fun. I thought of her as a multi-class warrior/support, as in OW she's intended to bridge the gap between tanks and healers, so making players decide whether they want healing or damage mitigation in the talents would be more in tune with what I'm after.

OK it's fine then. I don't want a copy paste of her ow abilities either but you should at least make It a talent or something. Mention its existence

Uhm armor does not mean health in this game and 100 range is like the entire map...
Regis | March 8, 2018 3:50am
I'm aware of the difference between armor and health, not sure what you're getting at there...

As for range, that's my bad. Been playing a lot of League, forgot Heroes measures range differently. Adjusted.

I think he means 64 armor per second effect is broken. at 1 second you already get 64% less damage from everything at 2 seconds you are basically immortal until the effect ends. I think you meant it to give 64 point shield per second not armor.
