Developer Comment: We’re making adjustments focused on the viability of some of Tyrael’s Talents. In particular, Sword of Justice was not picked very often, and was underperforming. We’re addressing this by taking a few Talents (Stalwart Angel, Burning Halo, and Smite the Wicked) and increasing their synergy with Sword of Justice by increasing the bonuses that Tyrael receives while El’druin is out, but reducing the bonuses for teleporting. This should enhance Sword of Justice’s playstyle, by allowing players to teleport into a fight, but still having an active El’druin’s.

Hero Updates

Abilities

  • Sanctification (R)
    • Cooldown increased from 80 to 100 seconds

Developer Comments: Tyrael’s Sanctification has been a dominating force in professional play for a long time. While we like the huge playmaking aspect that it provides, it currently has a shorter cooldown than many other Heroics that it can negate. This cooldown increase puts it on par with other Heroics that have a similar impact on the outcome of a teamfight.


2016-11-10 Balance Update

2016-09-13 Patch Notes

  • Fixed an issue that could cause Tyrael, Uther, and Gall players to incorrectly receive AFK Warnings due to the combination of their post-death effects and lengthy death timers at later levels.

  • Level 16
    • Salvation (W)
      • Increased bonus Shields from 35 to 45% per affected ally

Developer Comments: Tyrael has been trending upward since he last received a Talent update, and has reached a point where we’re ready to do a few nerfs to our Archangel of Justice. The major target points are a few of the over performing Talents, as well as some slight adjustments to a few of his cooldowns. Coupled with these nerfs, we’re also buffing a few of the lesser picked Talents so that he has more compelling options at every tier.

  • Level 20
    • Angel of Justice (R)
      • Increased cooldown reduction from 30 to 40 seconds

Developer Comments: Tyrael’s Talents have been stagnant for some time, and we saw an opportunity to spruce them up. We’ve added some power to his lesser-used Talents, and given him some new ways to bring more utility to his team. While we understand that many players will miss Angelic Momentum, we felt that it was best to remove it from Tyrael in order to have more design space to add other Talents that manipulate the cooldowns and durations of his abilities.

Bug Fixes

  • Nova: Triple Tap’s visual effects will no longer persist during an enemy Hero’s post-death effect, such as Tyrael’s Archangel’s Wrath.
  • Nova: Will no longer receive an Invulnerability overlay on-screen if a Holo Decoy is affected by Tyrael’s Sanctification, but Nova herself is outside its area of effect.
  • Tyrael: Casting Judgement on an enemy just as the target is killed will no longer teleport Tyrael to the enemy safe zone.
  • Tyrael: The duration bar for El’Druin’s Might can no longer display during Archangel’s Wrath.
  • Valla: Using Rain of Vengeance to score a killing blow on Tyrael or Uther will no longer cause an extraordinarily long respawn timer to appear while in Eternal Devotion or Archangel’s Wrath form.

2016-05-17 Patch Notes

Talents

Battle Momentum

  • Battle Momentum has been made Hero-specific, and now only applies to Basic Ability cooldowns.
  • Diablo
    • Diabolical Momentum
      • Basic Attacks now reduce Basic Ability cooldowns by 0.75 seconds instead of 0.5.
      • No longer reduces Heroic Ability cooldowns.
  • Johanna
    • Blessed Momentum
      • No longer reduces Heroic Ability cooldowns.
  • Kerrigan
    • Bladed Momentum
      • Basic Attacks now reduce Basic Ability cooldowns by 0.75 seconds instead of 0.5.
      • No longer reduces Heroic Ability cooldowns.
  • Tyrael
    • Angelic Momentum
      • Basic Attacks now reduce Basic Ability cooldowns by 0.75 seconds instead of 0.5.
      • No longer reduces Heroic Ability cooldowns.
  • Tyrande
    • Lunar Momentum
      • Basic Attacks now reduce Basic Ability cooldowns by 0.6 seconds instead of 0.5.
      • No longer reduces Heroic Ability cooldowns.
  • Zagara
    • Swarm Momentum
      • Basic Attacks now reduce Basic Ability cooldowns by 0.75 seconds instead of 0.5.
      • No longer reduces Heroic Ability or Trait cooldowns.

Developer Comments: Our intention for Battle Momentum was to create more active gameplay by using your Basic Abilities more often, but we found that a lot of this Talent’s power lied in its ability to reduce your Heroic cooldowns. We wanted to increase the cooldown reduction granted by the Talent, but didn’t want Heroic Ability cooldowns to drop to absurdly low levels. By making it only reduce the cooldowns of Basic Abilities (Q, W, E), it allowed us to increase this cooldown reduction without making it overpowered. We’ve also made Battle Momentum Hero-specific, so that we can tune each one without affecting all the rest, since Attack Speed, melee versus range, and the nature of your Basic Abilities can all drastically change what is balanced.

Regeneration Master

  • A reward has been added to this Questing Talent.
    • Quest: Regeneration Globes now grant 1.0 Health per second, stacking up to 30
    • Reward: Upon gathering 30 Globes, also increases Health by 500

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

  • Health increased from 2373 (+4% per level) to 2468 (+4% per level).
  • Health Regeneration increased from approximately 4.95 (+4% per level) to 5.14 (+4% per level).

Bug Fixes

  • Angelic Flash will no longer allow Tyrael to teleport out of Root effects.
  • Casting Teleport just as Tyrael’s Judgment is about to hit Li-Ming will no longer cause her to slide a long distance.
  • Tyrael’s Status bar will no longer persist on-screen during Archangel’s Wrath if he is killed by Zagara’s Devouring Maw.

2015-08-18 Patch Notes

Hero Updates

Developer Comments: Overall, our goal was to make Sanctification a viable Heroic for players. We increased its effectiveness and fixed a few bugs to make the ability more consistent. With the changes, Sanctification can become extremely powerful at countering Wombos or Hard Engage teams, making it an enticing choice over Judgement in certain situations.

    • New art has been added that will better notify the target of an incoming Judgment
    • The distance that an enemy targeted by Judgment must travel beyond the Ability’s maximum cast range in order to interrupt it has been increased by 66%

Bug Fixes

  • Casting Abathur’s Ultimate Evolution on Tyrael just as Tyrael is killed will now properly place Ultimate Evolution on a reduced cooldown.
  • Fixed an issue that could occasionally cause Tyrael's Judgment to fail to cast properly on the intended target.
  • Heroes that are struck by Tyrael’s Judgment and another knockback effect, such as The Butcher’s Ruthless Onslaught, in rapid succession will no longer be pushed farther than intended.
  • Tyrael will no longer fly to the enemy Hall of Storms if his Judgment target is killed before the Ability completes.
  • Tyrael's Judgment will no longer affect Heroes inside Zagara's Devouring Maw.
