Li-Ming, the Rebellious Wizard, is a Ranged Assassin hero from the Diablo franchise.[1] It’s a generally agreed upon fact of life among the denizens of Sanctuary that wizards and magical mayhem are never far apart. Although she understands people’s concerns, Li-Ming is entirely unapologetic for the destruction in her wake. She delights in unleashing devastating spells on her foes from afar, then teleporting away to frustrate her enemies’ attempts at striking back. Small minds may fear this kind of power, but Li-Ming wields the arcane forces of the universe with confidence and unmatched skill.[2]

Li-Ming is a burst damage mage who can reset her abilities upon getting a takedown.

Background[edit | edit source]

Diablo (franchise) This section concerns content exclusive to Diablo universe.

Li-Ming was born in Xiansai and brought to the Yshari Sanctum by the sorceress Isendra at the age of seven. Archmage Valthek decided to train her personally after he caught her studying forbidden spells. Li-Ming refused to ignore the needs of people around Caldeum, and saved the city of Lut Bahadur from drought by bringing water back. However, the attention of the Mage Clans was focused on Isendra.

Li-Ming discovered Isendra's mangled body shortly after the sorceress was assassinated in the eastern desert. She concluded that Isendra died unnaturally, and confronted Valthek. Even though he tried to stop Li-Ming, she left the Sanctum after besting him in combat. Li-Ming ventured to New Tristram, pursuing a sighting of a fallen star.
