So what are Tyrael's combat ability? Nothing so far.
Has Tyrael ever won a fight in his entire life? No.
OP, all you have done is give excuses why Tyrael is not useless but history proves you wrong.
Well, that's a fail on him when it comes long-term strategy...doesn't really apply to one on one combat.
^ Stupidity applies to everything you do. Doesn't take a psion-mindreader to outthink Tyrael
Okay, at least some combat implications in this one. Diablo in the body of the Warrior (D1) and Baal in the body of Tal Rasha was able to overcome Tyrael without his sword.
^Wrong, they both assumed their actual form in the fight. Lame excuse.
Sword of Justice
^This is a joke not even worth mentioning. He swings this for practically 0 damage in D3. He probably has never used it on living begins before. Explains why the loser gets owned every time.
If Angels did the most effective things at the time, your hero characters wouldnt have to fight the Legions of the Burning Hells for 3 games.
^An entire army of angels couldn't do what a few humans can do. Name one effective thing they did without PC help.
Well that was with her Swarm to be fair, which she wont have in this.
^Bull!@#$. She is the swarm. Just as Tyrael was a general of the angels. Except Kerrigan actually wins wars. I'm talking about the will power to actually succeed a task as well as a tactical mind here.
So you're saying Kerrigan would be moving too fast for Tyrael to react to?
^NO, im saying design wise Tyrael is better than Kerrigan, but as a fighter Tyrael cant even beat Cain. No contest. How can you not understand that. Kerrigan's only weakness is that she is too emotional (typical Blizzard sexism), but Tyrael is too stupid to exploit that so physically and mentally there's no way that worthless angel can even scratch her. Tyrael will probably run crying to his Barbarian friend for help. Story of his life.
