Shield and Sword: VALORANT’s Sage

Competitive games are mostly all about battles, clashes, fires and all other stuff. What about healing and protecting? Well, there is one lady that protects and heals her teammates every single round without expecting anything in return.

Here we are with the history, skills and interesting facts that you don’t know about Sage.

Sage: Story

When we check the lore about Sage and listen to what she says inside of the game, it is easy to make a guess about her background.

Ling Ying Wei is a Radiant monk from China who went on to become an agent for the VALORANT Protocol, being its seventh recruit, "Sage". She was able to work her way quickly up the ranks, becoming the Protocol's second-in-command under Brimstone and over more veteran agents.

Sage has especially been active in radiant agent recruitment and training, interacting with multiple new radiants upon recruitment and taking the lead on a radiant training program.

Sage: Skills


EQUIP a slowing orb. FIRE to throw a slowing orb forward that detonates upon landing, creating a lingering field that slows players caught inside of it.


EQUIP a healing orb. FIRE with your crosshairs over a damaged ally to activate a heal-over-time on them. ALT FIRE while Sage is damaged to activate a self heal-over-time.


EQUIP a barrier orb. FIRE places a solid wall. ALT FIRE rotates the targeter.


EQUIP a resurrection ability. FIRE with your crosshairs placed over a dead ally to begin resurrecting them. After a brief channel, the ally will be brought back to life with full health.

Sage and Skye are the only heroes with the ability of healing. While Skye is not able to heal itself, Sage can. Also, Skye is a bit more offensive hero with its flashes. Sage got all the skills for stopping or slowing the enemies and this makes the agent a perfect choice for defending. If you can find a good combination by Sage’s wall, the amazing defending is not that hard to do with Sage.
