      • Movement Speed bonus increased from 25 to 30%

Developer Comments: We're glad to see that Iron Fists Kharazim is a very viable melee Assassin/Support hybrid! We think that we can reduce the damage slightly on it, since Kharazim was able to throughput strong damage and healing with the Talent. While the damage potential of that build is stronger than we want, overall Kharazim is close to balanced, so we've provided a small Movement Speed increase to Breath of Heaven to offset the loss.

Bug Fixes

  • Kharazim: Fixed an issue that caused Kharazim's final hit during Way of the Hundred Fists to deal more damage than intended.

Developer Comments: Kharazim’s Talents have been updated to create more compelling choices at every tier. To do this, we’ve made sure that Iron Fists / Bruiser style Kharazim is viable by increasing its damage uptime, removed a lot of the generic Talents and replaced them with Kharazim specific options like Mystic Allies, and re-arranged a lot of the tree so that you don’t have to sacrifice as much healing to pick mobility, utility or damage.

Bug Fixes

  • Spell Shield: A cooldown timer will now properly appear when Spell Shield’s effects are triggered in the same moment that the Talent was activated.

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.
  • Kharazim: Will no longer automatically resume attacking enemies after using Radiant Dash to dive to an ally. This fix also applies to Illidan’s Friend or Foe and Kerrigan’s Adaptation Talents.

2016-09-27 Patch Notes

  • Level 13
    • Sixth Sense (Passive)
      • Block amount increased from 50 to 75% after being stunned or rooted.

2016-09-13 Patch Notes

Talents

Spell Shield (Passive)

  • Added functionality:
    • Spell Shield can now be toggled on or off to allow for better control of which Abilities you want to mitigate

Hero Updates

Talents

  • Level 13
    • Relentless (Passive)
      • Removed
    • New Talent: Sixth Sense (Passive)
      • Stuns and Roots against Kharazim grant 50% damage reduction from Basic Attacks for 4 seconds.

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.


2016-07-12 Patch Notes

Talents

Relentless

  • Relentless and similar Hero-specific Talents will now only reduce the duration of Slows, Stuns and Roots. Silence effects will no longer be reduced by this talent.

Developer Comments: With an increasing number of CC effects entering the Nexus we found ourselves constantly asking ourselves “Should Relentless work against this?” which quickly turned into a rabbit hole of ‘what-ifs’ and ‘how comes’. We agreed that the talent was going to continue to become stronger as we moved forward and decided to limit the number of effects that it can reduce.

Hero Updates

Talents

  • Level 1
    • Insight (Trait)
      • New Functionality:
        • Quest: Every 3rd Basic Attack restores 14 Mana. After this effect triggers 100 times, every 3rd attack will also reduce the cooldown of all Basic Abilities by 1 second

Developer Comments: Insight was seeing very little play, mainly because it wasn’t distinct enough. In order to both buff it and make it different, we’re making it a Quest Talent/Trait. We felt the cooldown reduction fits well with the increased Mana, as Insight is about using all your Abilities (both offensive and defensive) more frequently.

Bug Fixes

  • Kharazim: Fixed a rare issue in which movement commands could persist after casting Radiant Dash.

2016-03-29 Patch Notes

Design & Gameplay

Hero Movement Interaction Unification

  • Several Abilities have been changed in an effort to unify their usage.
    • The following Abilities can now be used to move to invulnerable units:
      • Kerrigan — Ravage (Q)
      • Illidan — Dive (Q)
    • The following Abilities can now be used to travel to objects created by an enemy, such as Sgt. Hammer’s Spider Mines:
      • Kerrigan — Ravage (Q)
      • Lunara — Leaping Strike (R)
      • Illidan — Dive (Q)
      • Kharazim — Radiant Dash (Q)
      • Chen — Flying Kick (Q)

2016-03-09 Balance Update

Hero Updates

  • Breath of Heaven (W)
    • Heal amount increased from 250 (+4% per level) to 280 (+4% per level)
    • Echo of Heaven (Talent)
      • Second wave Heal amount decreased from 50% to 35%

Developer Comments: Kharazim’s Echo of Heaven Talent is contributing too much to his overall Healing. We’ve decided to nerf the amount of Healing it offers. To compensate, we’re buffing his base kit. His Healing output with the Talent should be roughly the same, but now players should have more flexibility to pick other Talents on its tier.


2016-02-02 Patch Notes

Design & Gameplay

General

  • Damage dealt by splash and cleave attacks will no longer trigger effects that would otherwise require a direct attack to trigger (ex: Block, Spell Shield, Imposing Presence, etc.)

2016-01-27 Balance Update

Talents

Cleanse

  • Tooltip updated to reflect that Cleanse cannot be self-cast

2016-01-20 Balance Update

Talents

Cleanse

  • This Talent’s functionality has changed significantly
  • Target ally now becomes Unstoppable for 1 second. Cannot be self-cast. 60 second cooldown

Developer Comments: We want to give players more options to deal with the chain-stuns that have resurged after the scaling changes went into effect. We believe this increase in power to Cleanse should allow teams some counter- play against stun-heavy compositions.


2015-11-17 Patch Notes

Hero Updates

  • Insight (Trait)
    • Mana regeneration granted on every third hit increased from 12 (+0.21 per level) to 14 (+0.36 per level)
  • Iron Fists (Trait)
    • Damage bonus granted on every third hit increased from 100% to 125%

Developer Comments: Most Kharazim players pick Transcendence at level 1, and this is often the most powerful option regardless of the situation. We tuned up the other two options here to help provide Kharazim players with different options.

Bug Fixes

  • Heroes with the Relentless Talent that become Polymorphed will now properly receive damage from Brightwing’s Unstable Anomaly Talent when Polymorph expires.
  • The visual effects for Butcher’s Brand will no longer persist on a target that is protected from death by Kharazim’s Divine Palm.

2015-10-06 Patch Notes

Bug Fixes

  • Kharazim’s Overtake Talent will now properly last for its full duration.

2015-08-18 Patch Notes

New Hero

  • Kharazim has been added to Heroes of the Storm and is now available for play!

Talents

Cleanse

Developer Comments: We didn’t like the gameplay of casting Cleanse preemptively on a target that is about to be CC’ed. For example, you see Butcher charging your Valla, and right before impact you use Cleanse on Valla, allowing her to immediately Vault away. The change also prevents healers from cleansing themselves preemptively, providing a guaranteed target if the opposing team has only secured one Cleanse. As a side note, the original reason the Unstoppable functionality was available in the first place, was to help alleviate some persistent CC effects like Putrid Bile. We didn’t want you to cleanse a Putrid Bile only to have the slow immediately reapply.

  • No longer makes the target Unstoppable for 1 second
  • Now adds Relentless to the target for 2 seconds (50% shorter CC duration)
