[Top 5] Heroes of the Storm Best Healers (Latest Patch)

Heroes of the Storm Best Healers
Universes collide in the Nexus, and constant battles ravage it. A shot like this is a tiny piece of a mosaic of battles. It's a hell of a lot of work for some healers. Carry on to see which ones can handle the pressure.

1. Brightwing (Healer)

Brightwing Grand Master Playthrough

Dragons are the beasts of old. Their wings hide the sky, their feet shake the earth, and their rage burns with the brightness of a thousand suns. And then we have the playful and childlike faerie dragon, Brightwing.

Brightwing is a ranged healer with a global presence on the map via teleport. Besides that primary quality, she can heal allies in range constantly without using any mana with her trait. As for crowd control, she both has a defensive stance with the same trait she uses to heal and an offensive stance via primary abilities. Although not hard to play, this hero requires a lot of map awareness.

Brightwing is at the top of the list for the following reasons:

  • Solid healing with Soothing Mist
  • Able to almost instantly help out allies with Phase Shift
  • Allows a variety of talent builds depending on the game situation
  • Brightwing has a built-in cleanse that breaks stuns, slows, Roots, and silences every 75 seconds
  • The basic ability, Polymorph, is an excellent counter to many of the enemy's heroics

2. Stukov  (Healer)

Stukov Grand Master Playthrough

Once, he stood proudly. He steered his ship with grace and led the mighty UED Expeditionary Fleet. Then he was betrayed, forgotten, infested. Stukov is no longer an ordinary Terran, and now his infestation is spreading through the Nexus.

Stukov is a great melee healer who can provide abundant healing and crowd control. The efficiency of his basic abilities of healing and poisoning (infesting) relies heavily on the Bio-Kill Switch, which could be described as a detonator. He has additional crowd control abilities that can be outstanding against long-range assassins. On the downside, Stukov has limited mobility and is fragile enough to roam alone. He should at all times be a companion to someone.

These are the reasons why Stukov got on this list:

  • Great burst healing - The healing pathogen spreads from ally to ally.
  • Lurking Arm and Weighted Pustule provide excellent crowd control.
  • Easy to master, but a lot to learn
  • He can remove an enemy from a team fight range with one of his heroics

3. Lucio (Healer)

Lucio Grand Master Playthrough 

From his younger years, Lucio understood the power of music, using it to gather people around him and get them moving. This freedom-fighting DJ toured the world, and now his tunes echo through the Nexus.

Lucio is a highly mobile healer who continuously boosts his allies or heals them, all with the flick of a switch. The unique trait of Wall Ride allows Lucio to slide on impassable terrain and escape all attempts at grabbing him. Lucio starts with low healing power, but as the game progresses, he provides more and more. And to all the new players out there, a warning: Lucio is not easy to play.

Some of his strengths are:

  • Strong late-game healing
  • Superb against area damage
  • Exceptional mobility
  • Attacks while moving, so he can disrupt channeling abilities
  • Hard to hit with skillshots

4. Auriel (Healer)

Auriel Grand Master Playthrough  

Where does solace lie if not in the light of hope? It is that eternal light that illuminates the darkest paths one endures. This gift is bestowed upon us by the beating of an angel's heart. Her name is Auriel, the Archangel of Hope.

Auriel is a ranged healer with a unique healing playthrough that depends on the damage provided. Instead of using mana, Auriel has an energy bar. The damage that this angel and a chosen ally deliver fills her energy. Auriel is considered one of the better healers, but still with a few downsides. She lacks mobility, has little to no out-of-combat healing, and relies on terrain for some abilities.

Here are just some of Auriel's strengths:

  • Strong crowd control near impassable terrain
  • Good lane clear for a healer
  • Good at peeling with some of her basic abilities and heroics
  • High sustain healing during team fights

5. Lt. Morales (Healer)

Lt. Morales Grand Master Playthrough

"Winning a battle is more than just shooting enemy soldiers. It's about saving your own. I protect every member of my squad with my life. Sometimes I think I'm the only one holding them together. Who am I? I'm Lieutenant Morales. I'm your medic." - Lt. Morales.

Lt. Morales is a powerful single-target healer, which makes her a great addition to most warriors and melee assassins. Although she has outstanding healing power, she is fragile and lacks mobility and crowd control. This makes the Lieutenant easy prey for diving assassins, so every player should keep one thing in mind: positioning.

To conclude this with her strengths:

  • Healing Beam is a powerful single-target healer.
  • Decent damage reduction via the Safeguard ability
  • Her heroic Stim Drone support is a huge help in team fights.
  • A global transport hero-Medivac Dropships
