Zenyatta enters a state of heightened existence for a short period of time. While transcendent, Zenyatta cannot use abilities or weapons, but is immune to damage, moves twice as fast, and automatically restores his health and that of nearby allies.

"Experience tranquility."

Details Edit

During Transcendence, Zenyatta switches to third person mode and cannot attack or use any other ability, is invulnerable to enemy fire. He is still vulnerable to knockback and stun effects, though neither will interrupt the ultimate. His movement speed is doubled and any debuffs are removed upon activation.

A Zenyatta on the enemy team will say "Pass into the Iris", while an allied and player-controlled Zenyatta says "Experience tranquility."


  • If the Cultist skin is equipped, a player-controlled and allied Zenyatta will say "Experience oblivion", while an enemy Zenyatta will say "Pass into the unknown"
    • Prior to the October 17, 2017 patch, a player-controlled and allied Zenyatta would say "Experience nothingness."
