Balance

Androxus

  • Defiance
    • No longer passes through Power Siphon and Reversal
    • Now properly classified as Area of Effect damage
    • Added 0.5s Cooldown
Developer Commentary: Androxus’ Defiance is a strong option for burst damage in a close range engagement but the frequency at which you could use the ability was too high. We’ve added a cooldown so that the timing in which you choose to use the ability holds more weight.

Dredge

  • Abilities
    • Harpoon
      • Reduced Harpoon’s ability to interrupt your inhand fire
      • Now properly classified as Area of Effect damage
  • Talents
    • Abyss Spike
      • Trigger Radius Increased (66%)
      • Explosion Radius Increased (16%)
  • Cards
    • Hull Piercer
      • Now reduces Harpoons cooldown by [1|1]s
    • Cursed Weaponry
      • Now grants ammo on successful harpoon hit
Developer Commentary: Dredge has a lot of tools at his disposal to fight Frontlines. His Broadside ability in particular is a very effective tool at controlling space. He did not need the shield destroying capability that Hull piercer provided, especially in conjunction with the Hurl talent. We’ve changed the effect of Hull Piercer to modify the cooldown of Harpoon in order to give non-Hurl-using players the ability to increase their Harpoon frequency.

Furia

  • Inflame
    • Furia will no longer generate ultimate charge from dealing damage while under the effects of her ultimate

Lex

  • The Law
    • Now properly classified as Area of Effect damage

Skye

  • Weapon
    • Wrist Crossbow
      • Reduced damage fall-off
      • Increased base ammo by 5
Developer Commentary: Comparing Skye to other Flanks, her potential damage in a single magazine was relatively low. We’ve expanded her max ammo and effective range a bit to put her on a more even playing field.

Vivian

  • Updated Booby Trap’s description to display correct amount of damage dealt
