Overview

Welcome to the 1.0b Update!

With Launch comes some changes to our Update Cycle.

Paladins’ major Content Updates will now be bigger and better than ever before. Content Updates will include new Champions, Events, or other large features in every single update. These major Content Updates will occur every 6 weeks.

In between these updates, Paladins will release smaller updates that focus on balance, polish, and fixing outstanding bugs — like this release.

Our 1.0b Patch introduces the awaited Battle Pass Challenges, new loading screen splash art, skins from another galaxy, Front Line focused balance, and a plethora of bug fixes.

Have fun in 1.0b, Champions!

Maps

Champions

Ash

Assert Dominance can be great at buying time for an objective fight, or until a healer can get to you, but fees lackluster in most situations. These changes are aimed at making her ultimate feel more impactful when used, even if it’s not the perfect situation. The Range increase on Slug Shot gives Ash a true long range option.

Assert Dominance

Increased Damage 350 ➡️ 600
Increased Max Travel Distance

Shoulder Bash

Reduced Cooldown 17s ➡️ 15s

Slug Shot

Increased Range Increase 50% ➡️ 100%

Buck

Concussion

Reduced Scaling 1.5|1.5s ➡️ 1|1s

Fernando

Safe Travels effectiveness was potent enough to be an ability itself. We have brought down the shield strength and duration to be more in line with other Front Line Cards.

Safe Travel

Reduced Shield Scaling 250|250 ➡️ 150|150
Reduced Shield Duration 5s ➡️ 3s

Last Stand

Reduced Health Threshold 50% ➡️  40%

Inara

In coordinated play, the Bonus Healing Received from Earthen Guard combined with her assortment of defensive tactics makes her incredibly hard to take down. We’ve reduced the innate effectiveness of the bonus healing so Inara is not as oppressive early on (before players can purchase higher levels of Cauterize).

Earthen Guard

Reduced Increased Healing 60% ➡️  40%

Stone Bulwark

Reduced Heal 30|30 ➡️ 25|25

Khan

After analyzing Khan’s release, we have made numerous changes to bring him more in line with other Front Lines.
Commander’s Grab acts as Khan’s only non-ultimate damaging ability, and his only movement ability. The increased damage will now make hitting this ability feel more rewarding for the opportunity cost of using it.
Khan aims to be in the midst of Battle – However, despite having a healing based ability, Khan’s self healing is either equal or only slightly above other Front Lines. We’ve increased the effectiveness of Battle Shout to encourage this play style.

Battle Shout

Increase Heal 800 ➡️ 1,000

Overpower

Increase Damage 500 ➡️ 600
Increase Charge Rate

Commander’s grab

Increase Damage 400 ➡️ 600

Vigorous Defense

Increase HPS Scaling 10|10 ➡️ 25|25

Hulking Strength

Increase Scaling 0.5|0.5 ➡️ 0.6|0.6

Close and Personal

Increase Damage Reduction Scaling 6%|6% ➡️ 8%|8%
Reduced Duration 3s ➡️ 2s

Kinessa

Sniper Mode

Increased zoom

Ruckus

Base Health

Reduced from 4500 ➡️ 4000
