Stealth Mechanics

  • Damage numbers now pop up whenever you hit a stealthed target
  • stealth can now no longer be broken by damage or Crowd Control
Developer Commentary: We’ve standardized the way Stealth Functions in our game. Before there were many different ways stealth could apply, be removed, or reapplied. Much like the removal of superior CC and CC immunity we are looking to be consistent with gameplay mechanics.

 

 

Barik

  • Blunderbuss
    • Improved damage consistency
    • Reduced fall-off
  • Abilities
    • Barricade
      • Increase duration 4s ➡️ 5s
      • Reduced Cooldown 15s ➡️ 12s
    • Rocket Boots
      • Reduced cooldown 14s ➡️ 12s
    • Dome Shield
      • Increase Flame Turret damage 400 ➡️ 600 per second
  • Cards
    • Palisade
      • Reduce scaling {1|1}s ➡️ {0.4|0.4}s
    • Foundation
      • Reduced scaling  {1|1}s ➡️ {0.6|0.6}s
    • Bowling Ball
      • Reduced shield duration 4s ➡️ 3s
    • Red Streak
      • Reduced scaling {1.4|1.4}s ➡️ {0.8|0.8}s
Developer Commentary: Our goal with these changes is to move power from Bariks load out into his base kit, making him less reliant on specific cards. Also we made his gun better.

 

 

Buck

  • Shotgun
    • Increased ammo from 4 ➡️ 5

Furia  

  • Talents
    • Cherish
      • Now also Increases the range of Kindle Soul by 300%
Developer Commentary: The healing bonus of this talent was not the only thing that Furia needed to create a Kindle Soul focused build. Also her sister had a range increase and Furia was Jealous.

 

Imani 

  • Elemental Shift
    • Reduced cooldown 10s ➡️ 8s
  • Frostbomb
    • Reduced projectile Speed 60 ➡️ 40
  • Cards
    • Permafrost
      • Now increases projectile speed of frost bomb by {scale=12|12}%
Developer Commentary: Permafrost allowed Imani to amplify one of her strengths to a degree that no other damage champions can. Frostbomb by itself is also a hugely powerfull ability that was a little too easy to guarantee.

 

Lian 

  • Cards
    • Heraldry
      • Reduced scaling {scale=1.5|1.5}s ➡️ {scale=1|1}s
    • Shining Topaz

Viktor

  • Talents
    • Cardio
      • Increased healing from 250 hps ➡️ 400 hps
