There’s something for everyone in this Merry Mayhem.

Maps

New siege map: warder’s gate

Do battle at the imposing Warder’s Gate: Paladins’ newest Siege map. Will you side with the Warders or try to siege their fortress from the nearby forest?

Warder’s Gate is Paladins’ first map with asymmetrical art. Each side features a unique visual theme — Defend the Warders’ magnificent architecture, or stand among the roots of a mystical forest. This theming also improves gameplay clarity, making it easier to identify your location are on the map. Plus: Catch some air with magical anti-gravity Crystals!

Since this map is one of our most ambitious to date, we’ll be testing it thoroughly throughout our two week PTS cycle. We expect to ship Warder’s Gate in 1.9, but may extend its development time to ensure the best level of quality for our players.

Balance

Developer Commentary: Update 1.9 is the last update of this Paladins Season! This is a relatively minor balance pass ahead of our next update, which will feature massive new season balance changes. Expect major adjustments to the Item Store, Champion Base Abilities, Champion Talents, and Cards (40+). We’ll be hosting special shows on Mixer to discuss the upcoming season changes. Follow us on social media for more details!
General

Reduced the Magnitude of the camera shake or “Aim Punch” that players received while taking damage

Champions

Furia

Kindle Soul cooldown reduced from 5s ➡️ 4s

Developer Commentary: We are reverting the Kindle Soul cooldown nerf from Update 1.6. Furia released as one of the most winning Champions in Paladins, holding a top 3 spot at all player skill levels and queues for multiple patches. We feel she has finally settled into a much healthier spot overall, but still lacks the healing throughput to make her a competitive Support.

Dredge

Scuttle now has damage fall-off.


Ying

Added a unique sound to Life Exchange when successfully healing an ally with Shatter.

Bug Fixes


General

Fixed an issue where the Damage Dealt recap UI would sometimes display erroneous text.

Champions

Cassie

Fixed an issue that would sometimes allow Cassie’s ultimate to permanently reveal the enemy team.


Inara

Fixed an interaction with Jenos that allowed Inara to move freely while channeling her Ultimate.


Jenos

Fixed an issue where Golden Star Splitter was untextured.


Kinessa

Oppressor Mines properly have two charges again.


Maeve

Fixed texture clipping on on Raeve Maeve’s Helmet.


Seris

Fixed instances of looping sound effects when using Restore Soul with either the Jade Priestess or Remix weapons equipped.


Willo

Cleaned up the Whirlibird emote animation.
