Developer Comment: The healing rework to Tyrande has made her a formidable force as of late and with this round of changes we think she will sit in a great spot. The swap of her level 1 and 7 talent tiers should open some new early-game decision-making while pushing back her cleanse mechanic a bit further into the game. We are still evaluating Celestial Attunement on the design side and may make larger changes at a later date.

Support Heroes

  • We've unified certain Support abilities to only work on Heroes (not Minions or Mercenaries):
    • Light of Elune (Q)

Developer Comment: We're unifying the vast majority of our heals for their intended purpose: healing allied Heroes. We're maintaining the ability for a few heals to affected Minions still where we think it's an important part of their gameplay: Lt. Morales Healing Beam (so that she can heal herself), Rehgar's Chain Heal (to allow bounces travel across Minions), Tyrael's Righteousness (because shielding Minion waves is part of the lane interaction with the ability), and Uther's Holy Radiance (to unify expectations, since it can damage Minions).

Developer Comment: While we enjoy the flexibility of Tyrande's kit, she has struggled to find a home in the current meta. As we started looking at broadening our Hero roles, we felt like we had an opportunity to make some simple yet very substantial changes to our Night Elf Priestess. This rework pulls her slightly away from her hybrid status, reducing her damage output potential while introducing a lot more healing potential. While she keeps the vast majority of her older talents, they have been updated and shuffled to better coincide with her changes. We have enjoyed playing her internally and are excited to see what our players can do with her!

Developer Comment: We have been reading a lot of feedback on Tyrande and have heard overwhelming requests to give her substantial buffs. While we would love to do so, our internal data shows her rework win rate is sitting within 1% of her pre-rework values (.8% higher at high-level play and .1% lower at medium/low levels). The rework was focused on lowering the power of her healing while greatly strengthening her utility and damage output. Our data is showing that we are meeting those goals but realize that a lot of players are still attempting to solo-support with her. We are actively aware of the Support role-perception issue, especially since it transcends just Tyrande, and are exploring a lot of different options to help alleviate the frustrations.

Developer Comment: During one of our design meetings many months ago, we came to the consensus that we wanted to swap the heal functionality between Tyrande and Uther. It felt like the self-heal mechanic was better suited on a front-line melee Healer, so we gave it to our favorite paladin in his latest rework. Instead of simply removing functionality from Light of Elune, we decided to add a large amount of cooldown reduction with every Basic Attack. This will reward players that can stay in combat and has allowed us to shift some of her power from healing output into more utility and offensive-based areas. Overall, we are extremely excited to see what our players can do with her new kit and look forward to hearing any feedback you have!

Design & Gameplay

Time-based Scaling

  • We now have the ability to scale damage based on game time elapsed, which should help the performance of the game, but also more accurately adjust damage values of certain abilities.
    • We have implemented this on Li Ming’s Arcane Orb & Tyrande's Sentinel and will continue to look for other use-cases.

Bug Fixes

  • Tyrande: Fixed an issue that prevented enemies from seeing Starfall’s area of effect indicator when it was cast inside of Brush or Vents.

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.

Talents

Seasoned Marksman

  • Basic Attack damage can now be gained past the previous cap of 40 bonus damage
  • Activated Attack Speed bonus increased from 30 to 40%

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.

2016-07-12 Patch Notes

Bug Fixes

  • Tyrande: Picking the Celestial Wrath Talent will no longer prevent Starfall’s cooldown timer from displaying appropriately on the in-game Score Screen’s Talent pane.

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.

Seasoned Marksman

  • A reward has been added to this Questing Talent.
    • Quest: Increases Attack Damage by 0.2 for each enemy Minion killed nearby, and 0.5 for each Hero Takedown, up to a maximum of 40.
    • Reward: After gaining 40 bonus Attack Damage, Seasoned Marksman can be activated to increase Attack Speed by 30% for 3 seconds. 60 second cooldown.

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.

Bug Fixes

  • Attempting to cast Nova’s Pinning Shot or Tyrande’s Hunter’s Mark on an enemy just as the target enters a Bush or Vent will no longer cause the Ability’s sound effects and animations to play as though it were successfully cast.

2016-04-27 Balance Update

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue causing Tyrande’s Starfall to deal lower than intended damage, and have a higher than intended Mana cost and cooldown after learning her Celestial Wrath Talent.

2016-04-12 Balance Update

Hero Updates

  • Starfall (R)
    • Damage per second increased from 69 (+4% per level) to 91 (+4% per level).
    • Cooldown reduced from 100 to 80 seconds.
    • Mana cost reduced from 100 to 75.

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

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

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.)

Talents

Focused Attack

  • Basic Attack damage bonus reduced from 75% to 60%

Developer Comments: The talent is doing a bit too much damage over the course of the game. We like that it is a highly contested pick on Basic Attack Heroes, but want to bring its overall power down a bit.

Hero Updates

  • Searing Arrows (Talent)
    • Will now dismount Tyrande on activation

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that caused Tyrande’s Sentinel to deal reduced damage against targets at close range after learning the Ranger Talent.

2016-01-20 Balance Update

Hero Updates

  • Basic Attack damage decreased from 92 to 87
  • Trueshot Aura (Talent)
    • Basic Attack damage bonus now only affects allied Heroes
  • Hunter’s Mark (Trait)
    • Ranger’s Mark (Talent)
      • Hunter’s Mark cooldown reduction amount decreased from 8 to 6 seconds
    • Huntress’ Fury (Talent)
      • Attack Speed bonus duration increased from 4 to 5 seconds
  • Light of Elune (Q)
    • Allied Heal amount increased from 310 to 320 Health
    • Overflowing Light (Talent)
      • Allied healing bonus decreased from 35% to 30%
  • Lunar Flare (E)
    • Stun duration decreased from 1 to 0.75 seconds.
    • Lunar Blaze (Talent)
      • Range bonus decreased from 50% to 40%
  • Shadowstalk (R)
    • Cooldown increased from 50 to 60 seconds
    • Periodic Healing decreased from 16 to 15 Health per tick
    • Final burst Heal amount decreased from 100 to 95 Health
    • Hunter’s Swiftness (Talent)
      • Movement Speed bonus decreased from 40% to 30%
  • Starfall (R)
    • Damage increased from 64 per second to 69 per second

Developer Comments: Tyrande has been hovering around our radar for longer than we would like, but we needed to take some time to figure out exactly where we wanted to make changes. We are happy with how versatile her kit is, but feel she does everything a bit too well, especially since she thrives in the current stun-driven meta. We have changes targeted at improving her talent diversity while forcing her to rely a bit more on talents for damage or healing output. We are taking a cautious approach here, but are more than willing to make larger changes, if necessary.


2015-11-17 Patch Notes

Bug Fixes

  • Heal over time and damage over time previews for Tyrande’s Shadowstalk and Kael'thas’ Living Bomb will now more accurately reflect the burst Healing and burst damage amounts at the end of each Ability’s effects.

2015-10-06 Patch Notes

Design & Gameplay

Vehicles and Regeneration Globe Interaction

  • Regeneration Globes will no longer heal Dragon Knights and Garden Terrors.
    • Instead, Regeneration Globe effects will now be applied directly to the Hero inside the Dragon Knight or Garden Terror.
  • Players within a Dragon Knight or Garden Terror can now also accumulate stacks for Talents such as Seasoned Marksman, Gathering Power, Regeneration Master, etc.

Hero Updates

  • Searing Arrows (Talent)
    • Basic Attack damage bonus increased from 40% to 50%
  • Shadowstalk (R)
    • No longer reveals enemies.
    • Instead, allied Heroes are now healed over 8 seconds, and then receive a large burst of healing when Shadowstalk expires
    • Hunter’s Prey (Talent) has been renamed to Hunter’s Swiftness
      • Allied Heroes no longer gain a Basic Attack damage bonus, and instead receive a 40% Movement Speed bonus for 8 seconds

Developer Comments: We think that it’s important that Tyrande has the capability to be a viable solo healer, as she might be the only Support on your team in Quick Match. Shadowstalk is generally an under-picked Heroic, so we decided to focus it more toward healing so that it can become a “support” option. Tyrande still brings less healing than some of our other Supports due to the rest of her kit, but we hope that the Shadowstalk change will bring her closer to what players expect when fulfilling the primary Support role.

Bug Fixes

  • Sonya’s Seismic Slam, Tyrande’s Light of Elune, and Zeratul’s Cleave will no longer place the Hero’s Basic Attack on cooldown.
  • The Focused Attack Talent now properly uses a 10 second cooldown between bonuses to Basic Attack damage.

2015-08-18 Patch Notes

Design & Gameplay

Bonus Effects from Kills

Developer Comments: This change will not have a major impact on today’s gameplay and was mostly done for consistency on how these type of talents worked. In the future, it may allow us to develop Battlegrounds with many small minions (think Haunted Mines) and not have to worry about special casing Seasoned Marksman so it doesn’t get out of control.

  • Talents and Abilities that gain bonus effects from kills will now only trigger from Minions and Mercenaries, and will no longer gain benefit from killing neutral Mercenaries, map event creatures, summoned units, etc.

Talents

Focused Attacks

Developer Comments: This could be viewed as a buff or nerf depending on how players perceive it. You can still reduce the cooldown by attacking Minions, but won’t accidently waste a burst of damage on an unintended target. This talent will no longer be as effective at sieging, but it should be significantly better at harassing in lane. We will continue to monitor the talent, and tune as necessary.

  • The increased damage effect will now only trigger when hitting Heroes

Seasoned Marksman

Developer Comments: Overall, we like the way Seasoned Marksman is playing but wanted to tune up its effectiveness to reward those able to secure a healthy number of takedowns, while simultaneously tuning the talent up due to prior changes. Ideally, this will become a great talent pick when facing The Lost Vikings or Murky players.

  • Stacks earned by killing enemy Heroes increased from 2 to 3
  • Only Minions, captured enemy Mercenaries, and Heroes will grant stacks upon death

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue in which Ability effects, such as Giant Killer, Focused Attack, and Zagara’s Envenomed Spines, could be applied while Blinded.

2015-01-13 Patch Notes

Talents

  • MULE intelligence has been increased!
    • MULEs now prioritize repairing Structures over replenishing ammunition (if a building has ammunition, its ammunition will still be replenished while it is being repaired.)
    • MULEs will now prioritize Town Halls and Towers, then Gates and Moonwells, and then Walls.
  • If two Structures with equal priority are in range of the MULE’s placement, it will begin repairing the one it was dropped closer to.
