Talents

  • Level 20
    • Bolt of the Storm (Active)
      • Removed

2017-05-10 Balance Update

Hero Updates

Abilities

  • Cloud Serpent (W)
    • Damage reduced from 29 to 25
  • Blinding Wind (E)
    • Cooldown increased from 8 to 9 seconds
    • Mana cost increased from 30 to 35

Talents

  • Level 1

      • Damage bonus reduced from 50 to 40%
  • Level 7
    • Lightning Serpent (W)
      • Damage reduced from 15 to 14

Developer Comments: While we’re happy that we’re seeing more Lili due to her recent buffs, they have gone a bit far in making the hero too powerful, particularly in double-support compositions. We’re reverting part of her Blinding Wind buff, and reducing the power of her Cloud Serpent so that she is not putting out quite as much damage in games.


2017-04-20 Balance Update

Hero Updates

Abilities

  • Blinding Wind (E)
    • Cooldown decreased from 10 to 8 seconds
    • Mana cost reduced from 40 to 30
    • Damage increased from 132 to 140

Developer Comment: Adventures are hard to have when you keep getting bogged down by pesky Basic Attackers. She is too mild-mannered to demand buffs, so Chen sat us down, handed us some brew and talked us into helping her out a bit.

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.

Hero Updates

  • Level 16
    • Shake It Off (Passive)
      • No longer has a cooldown
      • Resistant amount increased from 25 to 50%
      • Resistant duration increased from 3 to 4 seconds

2016-09-13 Patch Notes

Hero Updates

Talents

  • Level 16
    • Shake it Off (Passive)
      • New functionality:
        • Stuns and Roots against Li Li grant Resistant, reducing all damage taken by 25% for 3 seconds. Cannot occur more than once every 10 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.

Bug Fixes

  • Li Li: The Shake it Off Talent will no longer reduce the duration of the Garden Terror's Queen's Curse Ability.

2016-05-17 Patch Notes

Talents

Conjurer's Pursuit

  • A reward has been added to this Questing Talent.
    • Quest: Gather Regeneration Globes to permanently increase Mana Regeneration by 0.10 per second, up to a maximum of 2.5 per second.
    • Reward: After gathering 25 Regeneration Globes, also increases maximum Mana by 100.

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

  • Cleanse (Talent) added at Level 7
  • Shake It Off (Talent) moved from Level 7 to Level 16.
    • Cooldown reduced from 15 to 10 seconds.
  • Fast Feet (Trait)
    • Safety Sprint (Talent)
      • Now provides the Movement Speed bonus regardless of Li Li’s remaining Health.
  • Healing Brew (Q)
    • Herbal Cleanse (Talent) removed.

Developer Comments: While one of the core components of Li Li’s design has been that she does not target her Abilities, we were not happy with Herbal Cleanse and its odd usability. In addition to some other minor Talent adjustments, we’ve decided to give Cleanse to Li Li to help her compete with other Supports in this area.

Bug Fixes

  • Self-casting Cloud Serpent as Li Li after learning the Mending Serpent Talent will no longer cause duplicate Healing combat text to appear.

2016-04-19 Patch Notes

Bug Fixes

  • Sylvanas’ Mind Control will now properly cancel Abilities that are being channeled by the target, such as E.T.C.’s Mosh Pit and Li Li’s Jug of 1,000 Cups.

2016-04-12 Balance Update

Hero Updates

  • Water Dragon (R)
    • Damage increased from 192 (+4% per level) to 318 (+4% per level).
    • Mana cost decreased from 100 to 50.

Developer Comments: We want to make some basic improvements to a lot of the lesser-picked/lower win-rate Heroic Abilities. Most of these are pretty simple changes to make them more enticing, like adding more damage, reducing cooldowns, or lowering Mana costs. We realize that the primary use case for Abilities like Li Li’s Water Dragon or E.T.C.’s Stage Dive is not damage, but having more of it might help them feel more effective. We’re trying to do something a little bit different with Brightwing’s Emerald Wind and Malfurion’s Twilight Dream by compensating for some of the Support capability you miss out on by picking these Heroics. We’re excited to see how these go! In Thrall’s case, Sundering was a little too strong, so we’re reducing its stun duration.


2016-03-29 Patch Notes

Hero Updates

  • Fast Feet (Trait)
    • Elusive Feet (Talent)
      • Damage reduction amount increased from 50% to 75%

Bug Fixes

  • Gall will no longer count as a secondary target for Li Li’s Healing Brew with the Two for One Talent.

2015-08-18 Patch Notes

Talents

Bolt of the Storm

Developer Comments: We love this talent and think it can create a lot of really interesting moments, but the cooldown was just too short. At 70 seconds we think this talent is still a great level 20 pick, but now players will have to be more strategic with how they use it. Forcing someone to use their Bolt to avoid a gank can now be a meaningful moment with this increased cooldown. We hope this also entices players towards choosing their Heroic upgrades instead of Bolt when the situation calls for it.

  • Cooldown increased from 40 to 70 seconds

Bug Fixes

  • Li Li's Cloud Serpent will now attack at the proper speed whether Li Li is moving or standing still.
