Enlightened Omnic Monk

Tekhartha Zenyatta, Enlightened Omnic Monk, is an Omnic monk who wanders the world in search of spiritual enlightenment. It is said that those who cross his path are never the same again. He believes that by forming people into relationships, the world can be healed, and a better society created. But, when necessary, he will fight to protect the innocent, be they Omnic or human, using the mighty Shambali orbs to channel his Omnic energy.

Now Zenyatta has answered the call of the Nexus and with him, he will bring harmony into this chaotic world of worlds.

Zenyatta is an aggressive Healer who excels in single-target healing as well as delivering high single-target damage. He shines in hyper-carry teams where he can focus on keeping a single person alive and enabling them to do damage.

Base Stats
Health: 1290
Resource: 9 Orbs
Attack Damage: 67
Attack Speed: 1.25
Attack Range: 6.0

Combat Trait

D - Orbs of Destruction
Cooldown: 6 seconds
Zenyatta regenerates 1 Orb every 4 seconds, up to a maximum of 9 Orbs. Each Orb increases his Basic Attack damage by 5%. Activate to consume 3 Orbs and make Zenyatta's next Basic Attack hit 3 times after a short delay.

Zenyatta's bread and butter and what makes him a dangerous high-damage Healer. The active component makes his AA hit 3 times (like Genji's or Lucio's but way faster, like Artanis's Twin Blades). These Basic Attacks benefit from the Orb bonus damage, but depends on which number of Orbs it launches from; if you launch at 8 Orbs, the 1st AA will deal 40% bonus damage, 2nd deals 35% bonus, and 3rd deals 30% bonus, and so on.

Primary Abilities

Q - Orb of Harmony
Cooldown: 6 seconds
Target an allied Hero and grant them an Orb of Harmony which heals them indefinitely for 72 Health per second.
Passive: Every 4th Basic Attack by Zenyatta against enemy Heroes heals him and allies under Orb of Harmony for an additional 72 Health. Only 1 Orb of Harmony can be active at a time.

This is Zenyatta's main healing ability and is an okay way of single-target healing. Based on this you can probably tell that he thrives in hyper-carry comps where he can focus on keeping 1 person alive and enabling them. The bonus healing component encourages Zenyatta to be aggressive and AA enemies as well as a way for Zen himself to self-sustain (the self-healing component will still trigger even without any Orb of Harmony active). This ability has an active range similar to Auriel's Crown, but slightly smaller. The cast range is similar to Morales's Q. If the targeted ally walks out of range, they lose this bonus.
W - Orb of Discord
Cooldown: 12 seconds
Shoot out an Orb of Discord that attaches to the first enemy Hero hit, dealing 80 damage to them and Slowing by 20% for 1 second. Once attached, Orb of Discord reduces the enemy Hero's Armor by 10 and reduces their Healing received by 20%. Lasts for 4 seconds.

Zenyatta's aggressive support ability reduces the enemy's armor and their healing, perfect for bursting down opponents. Unlike Orb of Harmony, Orb of Discord doesn't have a range for its duration. However, it does have a range similar to Stukov's W and the projectile speed is similar to Qhira's Grappling Hook.
E - Enlightenment
Cooldown: 12 seconds
Activate to grant nearby allied Heroes an additional 15% Movement Speed for 2 seconds and heals them for 105 Health. Removes any Slows and Roots from allied Heroes under the effect of Orb of Harmony.

A very straightforward ability that can provide an additional boost of Movement Speed for the team. The additional effect of soft cleanse on allies with Harmony Orb is to spice things up a little bit. The ability is an instant cast in a circle around Zenyatta. The radius is slightly bigger than Kharazim's W

Heroic Abilities

R1 - Transcendence
Cooldown: 100 seconds
Create a zone of transcendence around Zenyatta for 6 seconds. Allied Heroes within are healed for 600 Health over this ability's duration. Allies below 25% Health are healed for 50% more for the first 1.5 seconds. During this time, Zenyatta is Unstoppable and gains 20% Movement Speed, but is unable to Attack or use any other Abilities.

A translation from Zenyatta's ult in Overwatch. This is his healing ult that heals for a considerable amount when his allies are in low health. The zone is around 8 range so like a Fort's attack range around Zenyatta.
R2 - Orbs of Shambali
Cooldown: 30 seconds
Shoot out an Orb that attaches to the first enemy Hero hit, dealing 135 damage and linking Zenyatta to that enemy Hero. Over the next 1.75 seconds, Zenyatta shoots out 8 more Orbs that follow the linked enemy Hero with each Orb dealing 135 damage. These Orbs pierce all enemy Heroes in its path, with each enemy Hero pierced reducing its damage by 15%, stacking up to 4 times.

Zenyatta's damage option for his ultimate. This is a mobile channeled ability, so Zenyatta can still move, but he won't be able to cast any other abilities or use his AAs. The way this ability works is a lot like Nova's Triple Tap (so Zen's missiles will home in on the target), but Zenyatta can move as he channels his orbs. The cast range is about 7 but the missiles can travel indefinitely until they reach their target.
