Developer Comment: Deckard's foray into the Nexus has been incredibly successful from a balance perspective. He's sitting at a healthy win rate of anywhere between 47% and 51% in high level play, depending on the experience of the Deckard player. Many of his Talents are also looking to be in good shape. We're making some tuning changes intended to adjust under and overperforming Talents without impacting his overall win rate too much.

Bug Fixes

  • Deckard: Non-Hero allied units no longer receive area of effect Healing from the Potion of Revival Talent.
