2016-11-10 Balance Update

Hero Updates

Stats

  • Base Maximum Health increased from 2556 to 2633
  • Health Regen increased from 5.32 to 5.48

Abilities

Undocumented Source

  • Avatar (R)
    • Bonus Health reduced from 1124 to 1053

Talents

  • Level 4
    • Crowd Control (W)
      • Added functionality:
        • Now also refunds 5 Mana per enemy hit
  • Level 7
    • Skullcracker (Passive)
      • Added functionality:
        • Now also passively increases Muradin’s attack speed by 25%
    • Iron-Forged Momentum (Passive)
      • No longer decreases the cooldown of Dwarf Toss
  • Level 16
    • Heavy Impact (E)
      • Stun duration reduced from .75 to .5

Developer Comments: Muradin’s pick rate in both Hero League and Pro Play continues to be extremely high. Oddly enough his win rate is actually below average in most levels of play. We realize that he brings a very versatile kit that allows him to be a great solo-Warrior for his team. Our main change to offset his Health is to remove the escape effectiveness of Iron-Forged Momentum. Next week we will also be reducing the amount of Health that Avatar provides. The rest of the changes are minimal and targeted towards talent win/pick rates.


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

Talents

Imposing Presence (Active)

  • New functionality:
    • Heroes that attack you have their Attack Speed slowed by 20% for 2.5 seconds
    • Activate to Slow the Attack Speed of nearby Heroes and Summons by 50% and Slow their Movement Speed by 20% for 2.5 seconds

Developer Comments: We did not like the power of the Attack Speed slow for Imposing Presence given how little counter-play there is. We’ve decided to move some power out of the passive portion of the Talent and give it a new activated effect in order to create some bigger moments for players who choose to take it.

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

Abilities

  • Thunder Clap (W)
    • Added functionality:
      • Now also slows enemy Attack Speed by 25% for 2.5 seconds

Talents

  • Level 1
    • Reverberation (W)
      • Moved to Level 4
      • New functionality:
        • Increase Thunder Clap’s Attack Speed slow to 50% and increase the duration of Thunder Clap from 2.5 to 3 seconds
  • Level 4
    • Third Wind (Trait)
      • Moved to Level 1
    • Thunder Burn (W)
      • Now also applies the 25% Attack Speed slow with the second activation of Thunder Clap.

Developer Comments: As our heroes develop over time, we often find niches for their roles that are only available via Talents. While we love that our Talents augment our Heroes in interesting ways, we are wary when a Hero is picked specifically for a role that they are given via a Talent. We did a pass on our current roster and found a couple of these cases in Johanna and Muradin. We like how Johanna is seen as a warrior with good wave clear, and how Muradin is seen as an anti- auto-attacker. We’ve decided to make these features part of their base kits, and will be keeping an eye on others in the future.


2016-07-12 Patch Notes

Hero Updates

Abilities

  • Second Wind (Trait)
    • Base Heal effect increased from 1.5% to 2% maximum Health per second.
    • Critical Health effect increased from 3% to 4% maximum Health per second.
  • Dwarf Toss (E)
    • No longer grants Unstoppable while leaping.
    • Now grants Muradin Resistant (25% reduced damage taken) for 2 seconds.
    • Cooldown reduced from 12 to 10 seconds.
    • Mana cost reduced from 70 to 55.

Talents

  • Level 4
    • Third Wind (Trait)
      • Base Heal effect increased from 2% to 3% maximum Health per second
      • Critical Heal effect increased from 4% to 6% maximum Health per second

Developer Comments: The Dwarf Toss changes are very likely going to spur a lot of conversation, Uther knows it did in our bullpen! The logic behind this change is as follows – We want to buff Muradin for all ranges of play EXCEPT our pro-scene. Of course this is where the Unstoppable leap is abused the most, and even though there is some great skill-cap behind knowing when and how to use it, it gives him an incredible amount of power and definitely hurts the pick-rates of our other Warriors. By replacing this with a 2 second Resistant buff, it should help the vast majority of players feel more tanky when they use Dwarf Toss, which has always been the intention.


2016-05-17 Patch Notes

Hero Updates

  • Give ‘em the Axe! (Talent)
    • After hitting a slowed, rooted, or stunned target with a Basic Attack, increase your Basic Attack damage by 60% for 3 seconds
  • Second Wind (Trait)
    • Third Wind (Talent)
      • Bonus Health Regeneration threshold increased from 50% to 60% of maximum Health.
    • Stoneform (Talent)
      • Heal amount decreased from 50% to 40% of maximum Health.
      • Heal duration increased from 8 to 10 seconds.
  • Storm Bolt (Q)
    • Stun duration reduced from 1.5 to 1.25 seconds.
    • Infused Hammer (Talent) removed.
    • Perfect Storm (Talent)
      • Now also reduces Storm Bolt’s Mana cost by 25%.
  • Thunder Clap (W)
    • Healing Static (Talent)
      • Now only Heals Muradin when Thunder Clap strikes enemy Heroes.
      • Heal amount per Hero hit increased from 1.5% to 5% of maximum Health.
  • Dwarf Toss (E)
    • Landing Momentum (Talent)
      • Movement Speed bonus increased from 20% to 25%.
      • Movement Speed bonus duration increased from 4 to 5 seconds.

Developer Comments: The changes to Muradin were done to help balance out his Talent tree. A few Talents were a bit over or under-tuned, and he kindly offered us his hammer in order to forge some better options.

Additionally, 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.


2016-04-19 Patch Notes

Bug Fixes

  • Players will no longer occasionally become locked out of issuing further commands to their Hero after being hit by Muradin’s Haymaker with the Grand Slam Talent.

2016-04-12 Balance Update

Hero Updates

  • Haymaker (R)
    • Damage dealt to secondary targets increased from 25% to 100% damage of Haymaker’s primary target damage.

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

Talents

Block

  • Damage reduction increased from 50% to 75%

Developer Comments: We want to improve counter-pick talents like Block that are meant to be strong against certain hero types. We’re hoping that these kinds of Talents will have a more meaningful impact in games in which they are picked, and that there are more situations where the enemy team’s composition drives intelligent Talent choices.

Other effects similar to Block have been evaluated on a case-by-case basis for all Heroes, with some gaining increased Block damage reduction, while others stayed at 50%.


2016-03-09 Balance Update

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that could completely refill Muradin’s Mana under certain circumstances.

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.)

Talents

Block

  • Block charges are now tracked in the buff bar next to the Hero portrait, and a timer has been added to show the time remaining until a new charge is generated.

Bug Fixes

  • Muradin’s Dwarf Toss will no longer cause him to become stuck inside of Gates.

2016-01-27 Balance Update

Hero Updates

  • Avatar (R)
    • Basic Attacks during Avatar no longer Stun the target
    • Health bonus increased from 1022 (+4% per level) to 1124 (+4% per level)
    • Cooldown reduced from 100 to 90 seconds

Developer Comments: The mini-stun that accompanies Muradin’s Basic Attack during Avatar has a lot of hidden power that can be extremely frustrating to play against for some Heroes, especially those with Heroics that require channeling. The main design focus of this Ability was to bolster Muradin’s survivability, so we have removed the Basic Attack mini-stun and increased his Health gain when Avatar is activated. While we realize that this is a nerf to a beloved Heroic Ability, we believe it is necessary in order to promote increased Hero diversity.


2015-12-15 Patch Notes

Bug Fixes

  • Azmodan’s Globe of Annihilation will now deal the correct amount of damage while under the effects of Black Pool and the Taste for Blood Talent.
    • This fix will also resolve incorrect damage amounts for similar Talent interactions, such as Muradin’s Storm Bolt with the Sledgehammer and Perfect Storm Talents, as well as Falstad’s Gathering Storm and Overdrive Talents.

2015-10-06 Patch Notes

Design & Gameplay

Summoned Unit Attacks

  • Summoned unit Basic Attacks will now miss if that Summon is Blinded or the target is Evading.
  • Summoned unit Basic Attacks will no longer consume Block Talent stacks.

Hero Updates

  • Haymaker (R)
    • Haymaker has received improvements which should help it feel more responsive to cast

2015-08-18 Patch Notes

Talents

Imposing Presence

Developer Comments: Statistically, it was almost never wrong to choose Imposing Presence. With this nerf, it’s still a great counter in the right situation, and as a result, we’re hoping we’ll see more play from our Basic Attack assassins.

  • Attack Speed slow reduced from 50% to 40%
  • The Attack Speed slow will now be removed when attacking a target that has not learned the Imposing Presence Talent

2015-07-08 Hotfix Patch

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that could cause Muradin to become unresponsive while using Dwarf Toss under certain circumstances.
