    The Banshee Queen, The PVP Goddess.

    Reclaimed Souls + Death Volley is a party wipe for the opponent. There are ways to buff Reclaimed Souls without killing your own party, like using summons, or even better, using Samuro.

    BUT, I still have 2 concerns about her.

    1. She can be countered by Tirion. I know it doesnt sound like a real concern right now, but when we will have an estabilished metagame in Mercenaries PVP, there will be counter-strategies. If Sylvanas will be in every PVP comp, then its safe to assume that Tirion will be also used at the same rate. To be honest, it doesnt make her less good, I just wanted to mention it.

    2. You cant kill Sylvanas. I mean, none of her abilities are "attacks", she cant get retaliation damage. Your opponent will decide when to kill her, and you will have no choice about that.

    So I have my concerns, but she still seems like the best PVP merc, and I dont think she will be good in PVE.

    Clearly a mid-late game finisher merc. She has obvious synergy with any merc that summons a lot. Looking at Jaina, Voone, Rexxar -- all of which summon tokens of different tribes. So she fits into a lot of different tribal/spell school comps potentially.

    I wonder if you can build a pure token-summoning comp that just exists to power up Sylvanas, and then use some strong support characters like Tirion or Xyrella or something in the late game to keep her alive.

    I might use her as a bench-warmer in a summoning comp, but that's about it.

    I do love the Betrayal effect, but that's pretty useless against a solo boss (if there is such a thing). In any case, it's always useless when you're down to the last enemy.

      Exciting as well but I don’t see the team to go with her: who will you associate her? 

      The protectors doesn’t fit this team: 

      I guess I will go 

      Cairne/Jaina/Boone + Jaraxxus/ the little dragon caster who can swap(forgot the name) 

      Lack of burst and when Sylvanas arrives you would have lost 2/3 mercs . 

      i will keep her and level up slowly until new mercenaries make her viable. 

      waiting for your insight

    Sylvanas won't be winning any Speed competitions at her base level, that's for sure. I think Sylvanas has some interesting pieces, but as a whole her package is lacking. It all falls on Reclaimed Souls, which requires allies to die for her to start ramping her Attack. This can obviously be paired with summoning-Mercs, but it's still rather slow, and it's not like you want to let your actual Mercs die just so Sylvanas can get better. To me, that would just be unacceptable. Banshee Bolt doesn't risk her Health when she inflicts damage, so that's great, and For the Queen increases her Role coverage by turning enemies against each other (as in, she can inflict double damage to Protectors or Fighters by turning a Caster or Protector on them, respectively), and that's cool. However, they're not enough to turn my opinion.

    All-in-all, if you replaced Reclaimed Souls with something else, I would be on board. As it is, she's just not what I want in a character.
