  • Prophet Velen increases the healing of and the damage dealt by your Hero Powers and spells, with only a few exceptions:
  • Multiple instances of Prophet Velen stack.
  • Being a multiplicative bonus, Prophet Velen is applied after additive bonuses like Spell Damage and  Fallen Hero.
  • Prophet Velen doubles the healing of and the damage dealt by your Hero Powers and eligible spells. More precisely:
    • Spells that deal a certain amount of damage randomly split among all characters with a given characteristic ( Arcane Missiles,  Spreading Madness,  Avenging Wrath,  Timepiece of Horror) have their total damage doubled by Prophet Velen: the spell will thus shoot an increased number of missiles, but each one will still deal 1 damage.
    • All other spells and Hero Powers that heal or deal damage to one or more characters have the healing or damage dealt to each target doubled. This includes single-target spells (for example, with Prophet Velen  Holy Light will restore 12 Health), area of effect spells (for example, with Prophet Velen  Swipe will do 8 damage to its target and 2 damage to all other enemies), spells that damage "multiple targets" (such as  Cleave and  Explosive Shot) or that do a base amount of damage repeated a variable number of times (like  Bouncing Blade and  Greater Arcane Missiles), and all Hero Powers that restore Health or deal damage (for example, with Prophet Velen  Life Tap will deal 4 damage before drawing a card).
  • Prophet Velen will double the damage of Lifesteal spells (like  Penance) and hero powers, then double the healing restored from the Lifesteal effect, resulting in double damage and quadruple heal.
  • For additional details, see Damage#Advanced rules and Healing#Advanced rules.
  • Prophet Velen dynamically modifies the numbers printed on the text of eligible Hero Powers and spell cards in your hand accordingly.
Example: with a Prophet Velen in play,  Lesser Heal will read "Restore *4* Health.".
Example: if you have Prophet Velen,  Azure Drake and  Auchenai Soulpriest in play, a  Flash Heal in your hand will display the text "Restore *10* Health." but it will instead deal 12 damage to its target when cast, since Auchenai Soulpriest turned it into a damaging effect which then benefits from Azure Drake's Spell Damage bonus.

Velen has been the leader of the draenei people since their flight from Argus 13,000 years before the first orcish invasion of Azeroth. Known by his people as the Prophet, he has been granted the gift of the Sight, and — aided by the Light — rejected offers of dark power from Sargeras and has guided his people as they fled from, and later fought against, the Burning Legion and their former eredar brethren. He is first among the draenei and is the arch-nemesis (formerly best friend) of Kil'jaeden.
Following the draenei's flight to Azeroth, they made a new home on the Azuremyst Isles and, sensing great courage in the Alliance, Velen and his followers pledged themselves to this noble faction. The strengthened Alliance then helped the draenei reclaim their former holdings from the Legion. Most recently, Velen used the heart of the naaru M'uru to sanctify the blood elves' tainted Sunwell, transforming the sacred fount into a source of holy and arcane energies.
Although the Legion's forces in Outland have been greatly diminished and the demonic invasion of Azeroth has been driven back, Velen remains fearful of an upcoming war between light and shadow.
"Where faith dwells, hope is never lost." - Velen

Velen is also the mentor of  Anduin Wrynn.
