2018-09-04 Patch Notes

Hero Updates

Abilities

  • Life-Binder (R)
    • Heal over Time base Heal amount reduced from 75 to 60
    • Lifebinder is now affected by healing reduction and amplification effects (Mortal Strike, Biotic Grenade, etc.)
      • NOTE: This has been active in the live client for a few patches, but was not clearly documented.

Developer Comment: We've seen amazing results since adding a front- loaded heal-over-time to Lifebinder in the Warchrome Wastes patch. In fact, this addition has brought Lifebinder's win-rate up to be neck-and-neck and the popular Cleansing Flame Heroic. However, after adding this, we noticed some inconsistencies with how the ability functioned compared to other healing abilities in the game. While we think that ‘setting' a Hero's Health to a given percent was cool and unique, at its core it was still using a heal effect that was being uniquely handled to ignore Mortal Strike/Amplification effects. At the end of the day we decided to unify this heal and have the end effect take into account any of these debuffs/buffs.
