2016-08-09 Patch Notes

Hero Updates

Abilities

  • Nydus Network (R)
    • Cooldown Reduction from Basic Attacks reduced from 1 to .75 seconds

Talents

  • Level 1
    • Infest (Active)
      • ​Ranged Minion damage bonus reduced from 150 to 100%
  • Level 7
    • Bile Drop (E)
      • Decreased the amount of bonus damage gained from hitting Heroes from 10 to 5%
  • Level 16
    • Mutalisk (W)
      • ​Movement speed decreased by roughly 11%

Developer Comments: As the data continues to pile up, it is pretty apparent that Zagara has some over-performing talents. For a Hero with few natural counters, her win rate is sitting a bit too high so we're making some changes in order to address that. Overall, her talent pick-rates are looking great; in fact, Nydus Network and Devouring Maw are within a 3% pick-rate of each other (51.5% to 48.5% respectively) which is a great to see, and renews our passion to keep working on lesser-picked Heroics. While the pick-rates are looking great, the win-rate of Nydus Network is outperforming Maw and the output that the cooldown reduction grants is higher than we intended.

Bug Fixes

  • Nazeebo: The player will no longer receive a Stasis overlay when Nazeebo’s Gargantuan is affected by Zagara’s Devouring Maw.
  • Zagara: Casting Cleanse on an allied Hero as they are being pulled into Devouring Maw will no longer allow them to escape.
  • Zagara: Roaches, Hydralisks, and Mutalisks will no longer receive Healing while they are on Creep.
  • Zagara: The charge cooldown for Baneling Barrage will no longer be paused while inside of a Nydus Worm.

Talents

  • Level 1
    • Infest (Active)
      • Initial damage buff to Ranged minions reduced from 200 to 150%

Developer Comments: It has been a great couple of weeks for Zagara. We have been monitoring her new kit and overall, we're extremely happy with the changes. The new questing talent for Infested Drop was doing more damage than we like, but we believe our nerfs to it and a couple of her high win-rate talents should bring her win rate a bit closer to our goal of 50%.


2016-07-20 Hotfix Patch

Bug Fixes

  • Zagara: Enemies caught within Devouring Maw’s area of effect will now be properly pulled inside of the Maw.

Developer Comments: We are excited to bring you a fresh take on our Brood Queen. She had, by far, the unhealthiest Talent Tree in Heroes and we spent months going through multiple iterations of her Design. We knew exactly what we wanted to keep in her play-style: Lane Bully, Summoner, and Scout, and we aimed all of our decisions at those three characteristics. We also decided to upgrade her talent tree to better embrace our new design philosophies. Overall, we hope you enjoy her new tools while continuing to feel like you’re playing the old Zagara that we know and love.

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.

Bug Fixes

  • Right-clicking an enemy Structure while channeling Zagara’s Baneling Barrage will no longer cause her to move to that Structure without attacking it.
  • Tyrael’s Status bar will no longer persist on-screen during Archangel’s Wrath if he is killed by Zagara’s Devouring Maw.

2016-03-29 Patch Notes

Hero Updates

  • Nydus Worm (R)
    • While inside a Nydus Worm, Health and Mana are now restored at a rate equal to the Hall of Storms
    • Nydus Worm can now be cast while inside another Nydus Worm
    • Zagara now exits Nydus Worms instantly, and can also exit by right-clicking the minimap

Developer Comments: Nydus Network has been in a tough position for a long time. We realize it is pretty difficult to compete with Devouring Maw, which is an incredible team-fight Heroic. Zagara may also have bigger changes coming Soon ™. The current set of changes are intended as quality-of-life and usability improvements for Nydus Network. We will be keeping a close eye on these changes, but we are also excited to see if they can potentially open up some new play-styles for our wonderful Creep Queen.


2016-03-09 Balance Update

Hero Updates

  • Hunter Killer (W)
    • Health changed from 554 (+3% per level) to 471 (+3.5% per level)
  • Devouring Maw (R)
    • Cooldown increased from 100 to 120 seconds
    • Tyrant Maw (Talent)
      • Cooldown reduction increased from 25 to 30 seconds per takedown

Developer Comments: Hunter Killers can be overwhelming during the early laning phases, so we’re hoping to give some other Heroes more counter- play options than just retreating back behind their gate. Time and time again, Devouring Maw has shown it has the power to completely change the outcome of a fight—and even a game. We feel it should join some of the other, similarly powerful Heroics at the two-minute cooldown mark.


2016-02-02 Patch Notes

Design & Gameplay

General

  • Damage dealt by splash and cleave attacks will no longer trigger effects that would otherwise require a direct attack to trigger (ex: Block, Spell Shield, Imposing Presence, etc.)

2015-10-06 Patch Notes

Bug Fixes

  • The Lost Vikings are no longer teleported back to their Hall of Storms if they would have been killed by Zagara’s Devouring Maw while in Longboat Raid! form.

2015-08-18 Patch Notes

Talents

Bolt of the Storm

Developer Comments: We love this talent and think it can create a lot of really interesting moments, but the cooldown was just too short. At 70 seconds we think this talent is still a great level 20 pick, but now players will have to be more strategic with how they use it. Forcing someone to use their Bolt to avoid a gank can now be a meaningful moment with this increased cooldown. We hope this also entices players towards choosing their Heroic upgrades instead of Bolt when the situation calls for it.

  • Cooldown increased from 40 to 70 seconds

Bug Fixes

  • Anub'arak’s Web Wrap and Stitches' Gorge will now work properly when used against Unstoppable targets, which is consistent with Zagara's Devouring Maw.
  • Fixed an issue in which Ability effects, such as Giant Killer, Focused Attack, and Zagara’s Envenomed Spines, could be applied while Blinded.
  • Fixed an issue in which the following Abilities and Talents were not damaging or destroying Zagara's Creep Tumors:
    • Brightwing's Peekaboo, Diablo's Firestorm (returning fireballs), Johanna's Blessed Hammer, Leoric's Buried Alive, Nova's Railgun, Sgt. Hammer's Napalm Strike (impact damage) and Tychus' Big Red Button (the nuke portion)
