I think she is crowd control like thorn and orendi first, healer second.
I’ve noticed that people see she has a heal and immediately declare her a dedicated healer, and how her DPS is too high for a healer and constantly comparing her to Miko etc
But the problem is she just burst heals once in a while. Miko is a dedicated healer who stays behind everyone else. Alani is up front doing crowd control with minor heals from her riptide and the occasional burst heal from wellspring. Hence her having more health.
I’m not saying I’m the expert on her but the heals seem really secondary when playing her, and I find myself focusing more on geyser and riptide to push and launch people around, than focusing on healing because you have to wait for osmosis so its better to just use it when you see yourself or an ally at low health rather than try to maintain high health like Miko does.
Playing as her I find myself focusing mostly on pushing, launching slowing and bubbling players and minions.
Anyone else feel like people should stop seeing her as “healer”? Its like ambra. The heals are peripheral at best.
