Content of the article: "“Faith is my mirror!” – Hero Discussion: Yrel"
Welcome to the continuation of the Subreddit Anomalies – Hero Discussions 2020, where we feature in 2020 & beyond a rotating hero discussion randomly when the HotS devs rework or release a new hero that is the talk of the town, the Reddit community demands a hero discussion, or the mods feel sufficiently compelled to create one based on community feedback or engagement.
This week we feature Yrel who is classified as a Bruiser in the new Blizzard Roles system. Yrel's level 1 talents were buffed on the July 15th, 2020 balance patch to increase the diversity of picks. There was a previous Yrel Hero Discussion on October 2nd, 2018.

Heroes Lounge recent builds can be found on Lerhond's Probiilds site and NGS hosts their meta on Heroes Profile.
