Developer Comment: Gazlowe came out a bit low with his rework, so we're pulling back on a lot of nerfs that were made during the design process which were done with the fear that he would be too powerful. We believe these changes to both his base kit and to underperforming talents will bring him up to par with other Bruisers, and, similar to D.Va, solidify his place as an effective member of his team.

Developer Comment: Our resident one man wrecking crew is receiving a fairly large revamp, designed to fully embrace him as a formidable Bruiser, acting as a front-line member of his team who specializes in disruption and zone control. He now sports a new resource system with Scrap, as well as some design changes to both Deth Lazor and Xplodium Charge, which should make them more consistently useful throughout the course of the game. We had a blast tinkering with our favorite Goblin, and hope you also enjoy what we've done with him!

Developer Comment: I'm not exactly sure where this Goblin keeps getting the hoards of gold he needs to bribe the design team, but sure enough, he's done it again. These changes started off as quality-of-life fixes, but eventually evolved into something of a minor rework. Overall, we tried to even out the power-level of a couple talent tiers (including his Heroics), while also bringing in a bunch of baseline changes in order to make him feel a bit more user-friendly. We realize his win rate is above average in certain MMR brackets (and game modes), and that this may be viewed as a substantial buff to him. However, we felt it was important to bring these changes to our players and are prepared to act quickly if any tweaks are needed.

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.


2016-05-17 Patch Notes

Talents

Regeneration Master

  • A reward has been added to this Questing Talent.
    • Quest: Regeneration Globes now grant 1.0 Health per second, stacking up to 30
    • Reward: Upon gathering 30 Globes, also increases Health by 500

Developer Comments: We’ve added a completion point to this Talent. Upon completing its quest, players will be provided with some additional power. This allows us to offer spikes of power in-between Talent levels, or even for a single player on a team. Now, simply picking the Talent and only partially completing it is worse, but finishing the quest will return a larger reward. Choosing the right Talents on the right Battleground or with the right team composition has always been an important goal for us, and this change pushes this Talent to closer align with that goal.

Hero Updates

  • Xplodium Charge (E)
    • Stun duration reduced from 2 to 1.75 seconds.
    • Damage increased by 10%, from 212 (+4% per level) to 233 (+4% per level).

Developer Comments: We’ve received a lot of feedback from players regarding the popular strategy of chaining movement impairing effects, like Stuns and Roots, on an enemy Hero. While we want this to be a viable way to play, we feel it’s currently too prominent and powerful at higher levels of play. As a result, we are reducing the duration of many of these effects in the game. In scenarios where this change nerfs a character we don’t otherwise want to nerf, we’re coupling it with a buff to help offset the difference. While this change hasn’t reduced all effects that might make you lose control of your Hero, we feel these are some of the more egregious ones. As always, we will make further changes if necessary.

Bug Fixes

  • Enemy Heroes hit by the outer edge of an Xplodium Charge will now properly refill Gazlowe’s Rock It! Turret charges after learning the X-Tra Large Bombs and ARK Reaktor Talents.

    • New Talent (Level 20): Firin' Mah Lazorz
      • Firing a Deth Lazor now causes each Rock-It Turret to fire its own Deth Lazor as well.
      • Charging Deth Lazor to its second and third power levels increases the range of turrets’ Deth Lazors, but not damage.
  • Xplodium Charge (E)
    • Mana cost reduced from 70 to 60
    • Cooldown increased from 12 to 14 seconds
    • New Talent (Level 4): ARK Reaktor
      • Reduces the cooldown of Xplodium Bombs by 2 seconds, and adds 2 charges of Rock-It Turret when hitting an enemy Hero with Xplodium Bomb
    • New Talent (Level 13): X-Tra Large Bombs
      • Increase the cast range and radius of Xplodium Charge by 25%
    • Kwik Release Charge (Talent)
      • Cooldown between Xplodium Bomb charge uses reduced from 2 to 1 second

    • Functionality has been added
    • You can now press R to manually target active Turrets

Developer Comments: One of our major goals with these changes was to make our favorite one-man wrecking crew the premier zone-control Hero in the game, and we feel that his new Talents help push him in that direction. Gazlowe now has three playstyles that he can build around with his Talent tree: Rock-it! Turret, Deth Lazor, or Xplodium Charge.

The buff to base Turret range should help him a lot in this regard, as he is much more effective during the early stages of the game. He can now also be a big threat if he can set up at an objective before the enemy team arrives.

We also took this opportunity to remove a lot of generic Talents and replace them with much more interesting ones--like, ya know, the ability for Turrets to shoot friggin’ lasers!

2015-08-18 Patch Notes

Talents

Mercenary Lord

Developer Comments: We’ve combined the talent Superiority into Mercenary Lord, and removed the damage reduction from structures to prevent degenerative backdoor strategies. The combination of the damage reduction vs. Mercenaries and the ability to empower these Mercenaries felt like a logical pairing. We hope incorporating the two talents into one will make this level 4 choice an enticing one, as the two talents separated had a low pick rate.

  • The functionality of the Superiority Talent has been rolled into Mercenary Lord, which is now available to the following Heroes at Level 4:
    • Anub'arak, Arthas, Azmodan, Gazlowe, Nazeebo, Sonya, Stitches, and The Lost Vikings
  • New combined functionality reads: Non-Boss Mercenaries near your Hero deal 50% more damage. Reduces damage taken from Minions and Mercenaries by 50%.

Superiority

  • This Talent has been removed, and its functionality has been rolled into the revamped Mercenary Lord Talent
