Atlas’s performance in every aspect is way above our expectations. We believe that we need to adjust his survivability, while maintaining his powerful control ability.
Frigid Breath: DEF gain decreased from 64-120 to 45-80.
Perfect Match: Stun duration reduced from 1.2s to 1s. Total Magic Power bonus increased from 55% to 80%. Fixed the inaccurate display of Movement Speed while this skill is active.
Leap of Faith: Stun duration increased to 0.4/0.8/1.25.
Valkyrie Descent: Shield increased from 500-800 to 600-900. Fixed the issue that Basic Attacks can’t benefit from Physical Lifesteal while the skill is active
Fixed the issue that under a certain condition, Freya will get permanent max Attack Speed. Fix the issue that she cannot deal damage to where she stands.
We significantly reduced the cooldown of Badang’s 2nd skill, Fist Break, especially at early levels, in order to make it easier to combo his skills. Meanwhile, we lowered the Basic Damage of his ultimate so that it won’t too strong for his opponents to deal with
Fist Break: Cooldown adjusted to 10s at all levels.
Fist Crack: Basic Damage reduced by 30 at all levels. Explosion damage reduced accordingly.
Since we’ve improved the “Suppressed” effect associated with Kaja’s ultimate, he provides better control now. We decided to lower the damage of his ultimate. We also increased the Magic Power bonus of his 2nd skill, Lightning Bomb, and we hope he still does relevant damage with these adjustments once he has damage equipment items.
Lightning Bomb: Total Magic Power bonus increased from 80% to 120%.
Divine Judgement: Basic Damage decreased from 360 to 300, Damage Growth decreased from 180 to 150.
Ninjutsu: Demon Thorn: Removed the instant unlock on enemy hero kill. Slightly increased the width of AOE.
Ninjutsu: Devastator: Now using this skill to hit multiple heroes will unlock a corresponding number of seals of skill 1, instead of only 1 seal. Won’t be interrupted by Ninjutsu: Demon Feast or Battle Spells (Flicker excluded)
Kinjutsu: Pinnacle Ninja: Demon Blood increased from 20 to 25/35/45. Additional Movement Speed increased from 30% to 50%.
Magic Boomerang: Basic Damage decreased from 220 to 200, Damage Growth decreased from 40 to 20. Total Magic Power bonus increased from 80% to 100%. Slow duration reduced from 1.55 to 1s.
Auto Alarm Bomb: Basic Damage decreased by 50 at all levels.
Time Journey: Shield Growth reduced from 350 to 150, Total Magic Power bonus increased from 150% to 200%.
Lightwheel Mark: Damage dealt by lightwheels reduced by 1% of target’s Max HP at all levels.
Phantom Step: Cooldown adjusted from 5-2.55 to 5-3s.
Ancestral Gift: The distance between Grock and wall or turret is now checked more regularly so that his passive drops faster when he’s not close enough to a wall or turret.
Being able to constantly harass her opponent with a high movement speed makes Carmilla hard to deal with. After careful consideration, we decided to remove the movement speed boost provided by her skill 1, Crimson Flower, and improve her durability in return.
Crimson Flower: Removed the Movement SPD Boost. HP restored on each hit increased from 50-125 to 60-150.
We believe it makes more sense to have Ling relatively weaker in the early game, given his dominance in the late game. From there, we decided to lower the crit chance on his passive once more, so that he farms reasonably slower.
Cloud Walker: Crit Chance decreased to 15%.
Defiant Sword: Only restores HP 1 time on multiple-target hit.
Black Shoes: Cooldown reduced from 50-40s to 45-355.
Cometic Lance: No longer increases her movement speed.
Penalty Zone. Slow Effect adjusted from 20% at all levels to 20%/25%/30%.
Optimized the skill animation.
Heartguard: Fixed the issue that the shield doesn’t benefit from Total Magic Power
Burst Fireball: Basic Damage of explosion upon enemy hit decreased from 260-410 to 235-410. Explosion damage adjusted accordingly.
Wild Power: Basic Damage of the enhanced Basic Attack increased from 40 to 60.
Starmoon Shockwave: Total Magic Power bonus increased from 80% to 120%.
Abyssal Trap: Basic Damage decreased from 400 to 350. Soul Eater: Basic Damage decreased from 350 to 300.
Blazing Duet: Basic Damage decreased by 10 at all levels.
Reconstructed Skill Indicator. Optimized Skill Indicator of the following heroes: Johnson, Gusion, Grock, Helcurt, Harith,
Optimized the skill animation of Gusion and Uranus.
In recent several seasons, we’ve noticed that players are focusing more and more on the early game, and the intensity of fights just keeps on rising. This is what we would like to see. But what we’ve also noticed is that it is not rewarding enough for the team that’s behind to pick off a core hero on the other side, maybe even after executing some brilliant team fight combos. So we introduced a new mechanism in this update to make the comebacks more likely to happen.
Of course, as mentioned previously, we still encourage players to play more aggressively and try to gain a decent lead in the early game. We will be watching closely on how this turns out, and deciding further optimization steps.
1. Newly added: When the side with a team gold disadvantage eliminates an enemy Hero with a gold lead, everyone on the side will now get elimination gold bonus based on the gold difference between the enemy Hero and the average among the 5 of side that’s behind.
2.Fixed the issue that Healing Increase/Reduction doesn’t work on some skills.
3.Custom Assassin Emblem, the Bounty Hunter: Removed the fixed bonus gold after killing a hero. Now gains extra gold equals to 40% of the elimination bonus.
4.Improved the “Suppress” effect, now it can be inflicted to targets which immune to CC correctly.
5. Optimized the action logic of Luminous Lord and Minions, now they will automatically move back to the lane once they’re dragged too far away.
a. Physical Attack Bonus of Marksman/Mage/Support decreased from 80% to 60%.
b. Physical Attack Bonus of Assassin/Fighter/Tank decreased from 50% to 40%.
7.Basic EXP of the Siege Minion of the first 2 waves increased by 10%.
1. Necklace of Durance
We’ve fixed the issue that healing reduction effect doesn’t work against skill lifesteal and magic lifesteal. To avoid some of the equipment items with this effect getting overly strong, we decided make adjustments in advance.
a. Crafting formula adjusted to: Mystic Container + Mystery Codex + Book of Sages. Total cost decreased by 100. Craft cost adjusted accordingly.
b. Magic Power reduced from 65 to 60. Cooldown Reduction reduced from 10% to 5%.
2. Demon Hunter Sword
Unique Passive – Devour: Physical Lifesteal gain from each Basic Attack decreased from 4% to 3%.
3. Roaming Equipment Items
The purpose of the roaming equipment items is to help roaming heroes so that they don’t fall too far behind on gold and level. But the case for now is pretty much all heroes are buying these items to boost their farm. In order to change that, we removed the constant bonus and left only the catch up effect for when you fall behind. In the meantime, we lowered the cost of advanced roaming equipment items so they become a better deal. We will be watching this adjustment closely once it’s live. Moreover, we’ve already planned to improve the farming efficiency of some tank/fighter heroes, so that they can come online faster, even without having to rely on the previous roaming equipment items.
a. Roaming equipment, Unique Passive – Devotion: Removed the effect of gaining 2 Gold and EXP every 4s.
b. Total cost of 3 advanced Roaming Equipment reduced by 150, craft cost adjusted accordingly.
C. Total cost of Iron Mask reduced by 100, craft cost adjusted accordingly.
Flameshot: Close range damage decreased from 400+100% Magic Power bonus to 160+40% Magic Power bonus. Long range damage remains unchanged. Slow duration decreased from 1s to 0.55.
Flameshot seems to be too well rounded in current meta, especially some melee, heroes can take advantage of the knock back effect to finish their attack combos. Thus, we adjusted the close range damage and long range slow, so that players will have to make a choice between damage and control.
