2016-11-15 Patch Notes

Design & Gameplay

Stealth

  • Abilities that reveal Stealthed/Cloaked Heroes will no longer remove the Stealth/Cloak effect, but will instead temporarily reveal the cloaked Hero.
  • The following talents now function while under the effects of Stealth granted by another player (ex: Tyrande’s Shadowstalk):
    • Nova
      • Tactical Espionage
      • Advanced Cloaking
      • Covert Ops
    • Samuro
      • Way of the Wind
      • Harsh Winds

Developer Comments: Some revealers, like Oracle from Tassadar and now Scouting Drone, are very binary in their ability to reveal Heroes, by design. But their purpose is to provide scouting and position of the enemy, and not to negate the effects of Talents or Abilities that rely on Stealth to provide their benefit. While examining these conditional Talents, we decided that it would be more interesting to allow synergies between external sources of Stealth these Talents. We like that choices like Tyrande’s Shadowstalk or Medivh’s Invisibility become more interesting if you have allies that gain additional benefits from Stealth on your team.


2016-09-13 Patch Notes

Bug Fixes

  • Calldown: MULE: Will now properly acquire a new repair target if the Structure it is actively repairing is destroyed.

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.


2016-03-29 Patch Notes

Bug Fixes

  • The visual effects for Tassadar’s Dimensional Shift will now properly display if it is cast after breaking the Stealth effect applied by Tyrande’s Shadowstalk.

2016-03-01 Patch Notes

Bug Fixes

  • Towers will now properly fire Ammo provided by an allied Calldown: MULE immediately after 2 Ammo has been restored.

2016-02-02 Patch Notes

2015-12-15 Patch Notes

Hero Updates

  • Plasma Shield (Q)
    • Can now be cast on allies located in the Hall of Storms

2015-10-06 Patch Notes

Hero Updates

  • Plasma Shield (Q)
    • Shield amount decreased from 200 (+40 per level) to 150 (+30 per level)
    • Shield amount is now increased by 50% when cast on other allied Heroes
    • Mana cost reduced from 50 to 40
    • Cooldown reduced from 8 to 5 seconds
    • Leeching Plasma (Talent)
      • Basic Attack damage returned as Health increased from 20% to 30%
    • Evasive Shielding (Talent)
      • Movement Speed bonus duration increased from 4 to 5 seconds
  • Archon (R)
    • Reduced Archon’s Basic Attack damage from 64 (+12 per level) to 51.2 (+9.6 per level).

Developer Comments: It’s important that Tassadar players can queue for Quick Match and not be worried that they are going to cause a negative experience for their team. A Tassadar player who chooses the Support Talents will be much more viable as a Support character. We still expect Tassadar to put out smaller numbers when compared to the highest healing Supports, but with the huge amount of utility Tassadar brings, we think this is an okay trade off. The second change here targets Archon providing a little too much power; we’ve reduced some numbers to tune him appropriately. Internally, we’ve seen more Force Wall play as a result, which has been exciting.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a longstanding issue with Tassadar’s Twilight Archon tooltip. The Shield amounts and Damage bonus will now state a 50% increase, instead of the previous 35%. There is no gameplay impact with this change.
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent Tassadar's Plasma Shield with the Khala’s Embrace Talent from providing bonus Shields to Structures.
