New support hero coming to Overwatch

While I still maintain that they ruined Mercy (and are continuing to do so, especially with the constant nerfs), Blizzard seems to have heard the plea of support mains around the world in one respect: "We need more support!"

And thus, Moira enters the Overwatch lineup.

She basically looks like a wizard, so that's an immediate point in her favor. She has a history with Blackwatch and currently works for Talon (like a certain wraith-person we all know and love) as a geneticist. Ability-wise, here's what she can do according to the official Overwatch site:

BIOTIC GRASP: Using her left hand, Moira expends biotic energy to heal allies in front of her. Her right hand fires a long-range beam weapon that saps enemies’ health, healing Moira and replenishing her biotic energy.

BIOTIC ORB: Moira launches a rebounding biotic sphere; she can choose between a regeneration effect that heals the allies it passes through, or a decay effect that deals damage to enemies.
 
FADE: Moira quickly teleports a short distance.
 
COALESCENCE: Moira channels a long-range beam that both heals allies and bypasses barriers to damage her enemies.
 
As usual, Moira will be released on the PTR before coming to the main game, so if you're a PC player be sure to let the rest of us know how she is. (I remain loyal to my Xbox nonetheless.)
