Let’s remember that Sojourn comes from earning a number of nerfs after consecrating itself as an essential option in the metagame. At that time he was able to take out a hero with a headshot dealing 200 damage with his railgun. This was the straw that broke the camel’s back and made her take two nerf packs in December 2022.
As for Mercy, she did not earn reductions in Overwatch 2 since other characters in her role such as Ana, Kiriko and Lúcio stood out. The only mod she got from it was a small buff at the end of last year to speed up the weapon switch and increase to the ammo of her Caduceus Pistol.

For now Sojourn does not have the same presence with which she excelled at the start of the hero shooter, since other damage heroes such as Cassidy, Genji and Widowmaker are now used. But when she is selected, Mercy has the chance to bring out her wings and her healing force to shine. It will remain to wait for the season 3 patch that will be in charge of placing both in a place where she does not abuse her synergy.
