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.
  • Rexxar: A delay will no longer occur between repeated Misha, Focus! casts.

2016-09-13 Patch Notes

Bug Fixes

  • Rexxar: Misha can now push Minions and allied Mercenaries, but will not push enemy or uncaptured Mercenaries.
  • Rexxar: Misha’s Basic Attack target can now correctly be switched by right-clicking as long as she did not already have an order to Focus on a particular target.

2016-08-09 Patch Notes

Bug Fixes

  • Rexxar: Misha, Focus! Can now be cast when Rexxar, Misha, or both are Polymorphed. This should prevent situations in which Medivh’s Polybomb could cause Rexxar and Misha to become polymorphed indefinitely.

2016-05-17 Patch Notes

Hero Updates

  • Hunter-Gatherer (Talent) has been changed to match Regeneration Master’s new functionality.
    • Both Rexxar and Misha gain Health Regeneration bonuses up to 30 Health per second, but only Rexxar will gain the 600 Health bonus on Quest completion.
  • Misha, Follow! (Trait) (D)
    • Misha will now follow enemies to their last known location, even into bushes or vents, much like Zagara’s Hunter Killer.

Bug Fixes

  • Casting Dehaka’s Isolation on a summoned unit or Heroic pet, such as Misha, Gargantuan, or a Holo Decoy, will no longer also cause the Hero who owns that unit to lose allied vision.
    • Additionally, if one of The Lost Vikings or Chen’s Storm, Earth, Fire Spirits are hit by Isolation, only the affected unit will have reduced personal vision, but the player should retain allied vision.
    • Alternatively, if the only living Viking or Spirit is hit by Isolation, the player will have reduced personal vision and lose allied vision for Isolation’s full duration.

2016-04-27 Balance Update

Hero Updates

  • Basic Attack range increased by 22%.
  • Health increased from 1643 (+4% per level) to 1725 (+4% per level).
  • Health regeneration increased from 3.42 (+4% per level) to 3.59 (+4% per level) per second.
  • Throwing Axes (Talent) removed.
  • Misha (Trait)
    • Leash range increased by approximately 12.5%.
  • Misha Charge! (W)
    • Cooldown reduced from 12 to 10 seconds.
    • Aspect of the Beast (Talent)
      • Cooldown reduction earned from Misha’s Basic Attacks reduced from 2 to 1.5 second.

Developer Comments: We’re currently looking at doing a larger pass on Rexxar in the future, but wanted to give him some love in the meantime to help make him more rewarding to play. It should now be easier to stick Misha to targets with her increased Leash range, and Rexxar should be able to both zone and survive against enemies better with increases to his Health and to his Basic Attack range. We’re listening to your feedback on him, and are looking forward to bringing out something more substantial in the future.

2016-03-29 Patch Notes

Hero Updates

2016-02-02 Patch Notes

Design & Gameplay

Battleground Monsters

  • Battleground-specific creatures are now universally defined as Monsters (ex: Neutral Garden Terrors, Sky Temple Guardians, etc.)
  • Several Talents and Abilities have been changed to reflect this new categorization, and the following no longer affect Monsters:
    • Mercenary Lord
    • Johanna's Knight Takes Pawn
    • Lunara's Cruel Bloom
    • Rexxar's Easy Prey and Bird of Prey
    • The Butcher's Chop Meat
  • The following now affect Monsters:
    • Anub'arak's Beetle, Juiced
    • Azmodan's Demonic Smite
  • Several Talents that could previously trigger against both captured Mercenaries and Minions will now only affect Minions (ex: Seasoned Marksman, Black Soulstone, etc.)

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that could allow additional Mishas to spawn if Rexxar was killed by immolation damage.
  • Malfurion’s Innervate can no longer be cast on Misha.

2015-11-17 Patch Notes

Hero Updates

  • Misha (Trait) (D)
    • Misha's death timer portrait will now appear in the death timer bar while she is respawning
    • The frequency at which Rexxar's voiceover will play when commanding Misha has been reduced
  • Misha, Fixate (1)
    • Misha, Fixate has been renamed Misha, Focus!

Bug Fixes

  • Misha can now properly return to Rexxar if she is on the opposite side of an enemy Gate and an open path exists where a Wall was destroyed.

2015-10-06 Patch Notes

Hero Updates

  • New Ability: Misha, Fixate! (1)
    • “Misha, Fixate!” will have two functions, depending on its target:
      • If “Misha, Fixate!” is used on an enemy, Misha will move to attack the target until the target dies, a new order is issued, Misha leashes, or Misha dies
      • If “Misha, Fixate!” is used on the ground, Misha will move to that area and hold position until a new order is issued, Misha leashes, or Misha dies
        • Using "Misha, Fixate!" will automatically place Rexxar's passive into the "Misha, Follow!" state
        • Misha retains her current behavior when issuing commands using “Misha, Follow!” (D) and “Misha, Attack!” (D)
  • Misha (Trait)
    • Misha’s leash range has been significantly increased
    • Misha will now hide when Rexxar is hidden in a Bush
  • Spirit Swoop (Q)
    • Bird of Prey (Talent)
      • Bonus damage to non-Heroic targets has been reduced from 300% to 200%.

Developer Comments: We’ve received a lot of both positive and negative feedback about Misha’s controls and wanted to offer a little more to our players without completely overhauling her current control scheme. We will continue to monitor this and may make future adjustments to Rexxar and Misha if necessary to balance for this increased level of control.

2015-09-08 Patch Notes

New Hero

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