Relic Balance Changes


Adjusted the following Labyrinth and Peaks of Time relics:

Thunderburst, Blessed Hammer, Eagle Strike, The Unmounted Heart

The above relics that are able to deal damage to enemies now have an upper damage limit. The value of the damage limit is determined by the combined attack ratings of the 5 heroes currently in a player’s formation.

Firebringer, Icebringer

The value of the attack rating or defense rating these two relics steal now has an upper limit that is determined by the attacker’s own attack rating and defense rating.

Statue of Retribution

Friendly summoned creatures or illusions will no longer raise the attributes of any surviving heroes when they die.

Hero Balance Adjustments

  • Increased summoned phantom attributes from 80% to 85% for the ‘Phantom Assassin’ ability.

Hero Bug Fixes


Melee

Fixed a problem that would sometimes prevent melee heroes from attacking totems when they were located at the edge of the screen.

Ulmus

Fixed a bug affecting Ulmus’ Deep Roots’ ability which was preventing it from correctly restoring Ulmus’ health immediately.

Safiya

Fixed a bug that would cause Safiya’s ‘Spectral Disruption’ ability to persist even after her death.

Fixed an issue affecting Khasos ‘Obliteration’ ability, that would sometimes prevent him from correctly charging at his enemies.

Athalia

Fixed a problem that would sometimes prevent Athalia’s ‘Judgement’ ability from targeting an enemy directly opposite her.

Skreg

Fixed a bug that was incorrectly causing Skreg’s ‘Beast of Burden’ ability to allow Skreg to be impervious to enemy control abilities while he was using the ability.

Seirus

Fixed a bug that was incorrectly causing Seirus’ Abhorrent Torrent’ ability to allow Seirus to be impervious to enemy control abilities while he was using the ability.

Tasi

Fixed a bug that was causing Tasi’s ‘Teleportation’ ability to incorrectly reset the cooldown timer of an ability she was already using.
