  • Runic Blast (E)
    • Damage from 233 to 210

  • Level 4
    • Bomb’s Away (E)
      • Bonus damage now caps at 200
  • Level 7
    • Double Trouble (Q)
      • Quest unlock cooldown reduction decreased from 1 to .5 seconds

Return

Orphea

divider_hero_orphea.png

Stats

  • Maximum Health reduced from 1662 to 1525
  • Health Regen reduced from 3.46 to 3.18

Abilities

  • Crushing Jaws (R)
    • Damage reduced from 275 to 250
    • Stun duration reduced from .75 to .5 seconds

Talents

  • Level 1
    • Ancestral Strength (Trait)
      • Damage bonus reduced from 25 to 20%

    • Fright (E)
      • The slow effects no longer stack
    • Backbiter (W)

Return

Samuro

Divider_Hero_Samuro_crop.png

Abilities

  • Illusion Master (R)
    • Cooldown increased from 8 to 10 seconds
    • No longer grants Samuro bonus Basic Attack damage

    Talents

    • Level 1
      • Way of Illusion (Q)
        • Bonus Attack Damage per quest stack reduced from .5 to .25

    Developer Comment: Samuro has become a bit of a nuisance for many players to deal with, particularly when playing against people who are competent in using Illusion Master. We’re reducing the power of Way of Illusion and Illusion Master, which should generally reduce the overall damage that Samuro can deal throughout the game.

    Return


    Specialist

    Sylvanas

    Divider_Heroes_Sylvanas_Cropped.png

    Stats

    • Maximum Health increased from 1550 to 1650
    • Health Regeneration increased from 3.23 to 3.44

    Abilities

    • Shadow Dagger (W)
      • Damage increased from 29 to 32

    Developer Comment: We are still gathering and evaluating data on Sylvanas, but her win rate is looking a little low, so we are giving her some small preliminary buffs while people figure out how to play with her updated kit and talents.

    Return

    Zagara

    Divider_Hero_Zagara_Crop.png

      • Increasing Clarity (Q)
        • Damage bonus upon quest completion increased from 150 to 180

    Return

    Deckard 

    divider_hero_deckard.png

    Talents

    • Level 1
      • Field Study (E)
        • Spell Power bonus increased from 15 to 20% per stack
    • Level 4
      • Ruby (Active)
        • Healing increased from 205 to 220
    • Level 13
      • Potion of Revival (Q)
        • Healing increased from 35 to 45%
      • Super Healing Potion (Q)
        • Healing increased from 80 to 100%
    • Level 16
      • Safety in Numbers (Trait)
        • Armor bonus increased from 10 to 15

    Developer Comment: After the last round of changes, Deckard’s win rate has fallen more than we would like.  Rather than put more power back into his base kit, we are buffing some of his talents on various tiers to make his talent choices more impactful and to increase his power growth throughout the game.

    Return

    Lt. Morales

    Divider_Hero_LtMorales_cropped.png

    Talents

    • Level 7
      • Physical Therapy (W)
        • No longer grants cooldown reduction when removing Slows with Safeguard
          • Additional functionality:
            • Reduce the cooldown of Safeguard by 2 seconds

    Return

    Uther

    Divider_Hero_Uther_Crop.png

    Talents

    • Level 7
      • Armor of Faith (Q)
        • Now has a 20-second cooldown
        • Additional functionality:
          • Now also restores 90 Mana when Uther is Stunned, Rooted, or Silenced

    Developer Comment: There was a large disparity of the value that Uther could receive when taking Armor of Faith against various heroes who have small stuns that proc often against enemies (such as Johanna.) While we still like the idea of this talent turning crowd control against Uther into a boon for him, we want to be able to control its frequency so that his output isn’t drastically different when facing off against certain heroes. To compensate for the loss of uptime in these situations, we are giving him a fairly significant Mana return, which should offset the cooldown reduction that he receives on Holy Light when this talent activates.

    Warrior

    Cho

    Divider_Hero_Cho_crop.png

    Stats

    • Maximum Health reduced from 2950 to 2750
    • Health regeneration reduced from 6.15 to 5.73

    Return

    D.Va

    Divider_Hero_DVa.png

    Stats

    • Mech Basic Attack damage increased from 24 to 26

    Return

    Mal'Ganis

    Divider_Hero_Malganis_Crop.png

    Talents

    • Level 4
      • Fueled by Torment (W)
        • Healing reduced from 12 to 11

    Return 

    Stitches

    Divider_Hero_Stitches_Crop.png

    Stats

    • Base Maximum Health increased from 3000 to 3060
    • Health Regen increased from 6.25 to 6.38

    Talents

    • Level 4
      • Chop Chop (W)
        • Attack Speed increased from 4 to 5 seconds
    • Level 13
      • Digestive Juices (E)
        • Damage reduction bonus increased from 40 to 50%
        • Duration increased from 4 to 5 seconds

    Developer Comment: Overall, Stitches is faring well with his new toys. There are a few places we think could stand some numerical changes, but we’d like to give him a bit more time to settle in with all the other changes that went out with this patch. We will continue to monitor the large lad, but felt there were some easy wins on talents that were obviously underperforming.
