Developer Comment: We've begun to take a look at some of Whitemane's underlying issues with Mana management, particularly in regards to how her talents interact with her base mechanics. We don't know how long this will take, and wanted to push out some small buffs to her to help her play and win rate in the meantime. When looking at her kit, we noticed that she had an abnormally high Basic Attack speed, combined with very low damage. We're reducing her Attack Speed, as she is not the kind of character that can turret on enemy Heroes like Tychus can, and we're buffing her damage to be much greater so that those attacks more meaningfully interact with Zeal. We're hoping that these small buffs better reward aggressive Whitemane players with both increased damage and healing output.
