  • Level 20
    • Twilight Archon (R)
      • Updated functionality:
        • Basic Attacks while in Archon form increase Archon’s duration by 2 seconds

Developer Comment: It’s no secret that Khaydarin Resonance has consistently proven to be a problematic talent on Tassadar. We want to keep the talent ‘support natured’ which the new design embraces. With the volatility of him in competitive drafts we are striking at his Plasma Shield duration again and offsetting the nerfs with some base damage buffs. The rest of the changes address some talent imbalances and should help even out a few of his Talent Tiers.


2017-03-28 Balance Update

Hero Updates

Abilities

  • Plasma Shield (Q)
    • Duration reduced from 8 to 5 seconds
    • Life leech increased from 20 to 30%

    • Damage reduced from 175 to 166
    • Splash damage reduced from 87.5 to 83

Talents

  • Level 1
    • Khaydarin Resonance (Q)
      • 15 Regen Globe quest
        • Bonus Shield amount increased from 15 to 20%
      • 30 Regen Globe quest
        • No longer increases duration of Plasma Shield
        • Now lowers the cooldown of Plasma Shield by 3 seconds
  • Level 4
    • Khala’s Embrace (Q)
      • Bonus life leech increased from 40 to 50%
  • Level 20
    • Shield Battery (Active)
      • Cooldown reduced from 75 to 60 seconds

Developer Comments: The duration on Plasma Shield has always matched the Cooldown, but we are ready to try separating them. Enemy teams will now have a small window of time to deal meaningful damage between Shield applications (unless Tassadar fully unlocks Khaydarin Resonance). Since he is currently over-performing we are also looking to bring down the damage of Archon slightly.


2017-03-14 Patch Notes

Bug Fixes

  • Tassadar: Fixed an issue that could prevent Archon from refreshing Dimensional Shift’s cooldown.

2017-02-27 Balance Update

Hero Updates

Talents

  • Level 1
    • Khaydarin Resonance (Q)
      • New functionality:
        • Quest: Regeneration Globes grant an additional 50% Mana.
        • Reward(1): After collecting 15 Globes, increase the value of Plasma Shield by 15%.
        • Reward(2): After collecting 30 Globes, increase the duration of Plasma Shield by 100%.

Developer Comments: One of our major goals with Hero reworks is attempting to keep as many of the current builds and playstyles that exist for a Hero, trim out older or unhealthy ones, and hopefully open doors for new ones to emerge. When shifting the old Khala’s Embrace to a questing talent (Khaydarin Resonance), we had hoped to lock the immense power that it brought behind a barrier that was difficult to overcome on a lot of maps. In theory, this would make it feel rewarding to take on certain maps, but rarely the most powerful choice. Instead, we found that locking this kind of potential behind an extremely difficult Globe-collecting talent made for a more frustrating experience than a fun one. When taking a step back and considering our options, we felt it best to remove the permanent shielding capabilities and replace it with a less-powerful questing talent.

Developer Comments: We absolutely love releasing reworks and this one was a long-time-coming, as Tassadar has had a bit of an identity crisis from the moment he stepped foot into the Nexus. We knew that the design direction and changes were going to need to be a bit more expansive in scope compared to most of our other reworks, but we did our best to keep him as true to his High Templar heritage as possible. Our goals were to embrace him as a true utility- based support mage. The new "Distortion Beam" Basic Attack should allow you to help peel for your allies as well as secure kills that would be otherwise unobtainable. Plasma Shield has gained baseline utility that will continue to empower Basic Attackers, while also offering more diverse talents in order to better react to enemy and ally compositions. Archon has been surgically buffed and given a passive reset for Dimensional Shift which should be great news for our old-school fans as we fully expect to see a resurgence of back-line infiltration play. Overall, we hope the changes reinvigorate our steadfast Tassadar players while integrating many new ones into the Khala. En Taro Tassadar.

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.

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.
