Cho

2016-10-18 Patch Notes

Bug Fixes

  • Damage Reduction: When two damage reduction effects, such as Resistant (25%) and Hardened Shield (75%), are simultaneously applied to a Hero, the larger effect will no longer be overridden by the lesser effect.

2016-09-13 Patch Notes

Hero Updates

Talents

  • Level 13
    • Surge of Stamina (Q)
      • New functionality:
        • Using Surging Fist grants Resistant, reducing all damage taken by 25% for 3 seconds. Reduces the cooldown of Surging Fist by 4 seconds if it hits an enemy Hero.

Developer Comments: We’re removing the majority of our old Relentless- like Talents from the game, because we found that it wasn’t clear to the enemy team what was happening. Reducing the duration on very short disabling effects to begin with was hard to notice, and typically felt like a bug when it did happen. In some cases, we’re replacing these Talents with Hero specific ones that more clearly convey what’s happening, while fitting the gameplay of the Hero.

Developer Comments: As part of our ongoing process to improve our talent system, we are doing a pass on all heroes in the game to increase the health of their talent trees. We know that there are a fair number of talents that feel like they are either mandatory or insignificant, and this is our first pass on putting in fixes. These fixes take many forms, and can range from simply buffing or nerfing numbers to changing functionality. We’re excited to keep our heroes feeling fresh, and you can look forward to additional changes to more of our heroes in upcoming patches.

      • Every third consecutive Basic Attack against the same target deals 75% bonus damage

Developer Comments: Similar to Gall, a few months of data have given us a good idea about which of Cho’s Talents are under and over performing. We have made some balance changes and Talent swaps to help these issues.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug that could prevent Gall from receiving the Will of Gall activated Talent if Cho selected the Talent while channeling to enter Lt. Morales’ Medivac.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that could cause Brightwing’s Phase Shield to be applied to Cho'Gall inconsistently.
  • Fixed an issue which could allow Cho'gall to regenerate Health after using Consuming Blaze on certain destructible objects.
