Talents Edit


Tooltip updated to reflect that Cleanse cannot be self-cast

Assassin Edit

Falstad Edit

  • Hinterland Blast (R)
    • Damage increased from 411 (+4% per level) to 411 (+4.75% per level)
    • Cooldown increased from 90 to 120 seconds
Developer Comments: We are looking for opportunities to increase the impact that some Heroic Abilities have at the moment they are cast. When it makes sense, we are also looking to increase the cooldown in order to keep the big moments more impactful. This is our first pass at doing this and you can expect to see more changes like these as we move forward with this initiative.

Greymane Edit

  • Health increased from 1876 (+4% per level) to 1876 (+4.5% per level)
  • Health Regeneration increased from 3.906 (+4% per level) to 3.906 (+4.5% per level)
  • Gilnean Cocktail (Q)
    • Mana cost reduced from 80 to 70
    • Cooldown reduced from 9 to 8 seconds
    • Perfect Aim (Talent)
      • Mana restoration decreased from 60 to 50
  • Razor Swipe (Worgen) (Q)
  • Inner Beast (W)
    • Insatiable (Talent)
      • Maximum Mana restoration increased from 120 to 140
  • Darkflight (E)
    • Cooldown reduced from 6 to 5 seconds
  • Disengage (Worgen) (E)
    • Cooldown reduced from 6 to 5 seconds
Developer Comments: Overall, we have been excited to see Greymane find his niche in certain team compositions while also watching his win rate slowly climb. We have made a couple of changes to help a few of his weaker talents. At the same time, we have lowered some cooldowns in order to make him a bit more active to play, while also increasing his Health Scaling to help him survive team fights in the later stages of the game.

Specialist Edit

Sgt. Hammer Edit

  • Blunt Force Gun (R)
    • Damage increased from 365 (+4% per level) to 500 (+3% per level)

Warrior Edit

Arthas Edit

  • Summon Sindragosa (R)
    • Damage increased from 205 (+4% per level) to 255 (+4% per level)
    • Cooldown increased from 80 to 100 seconds

E.T.C. Edit

  • Stage Dive (R)
    • Damage increased from 155 (+4% per level) to 201 (+4% per level)

Johanna Edit

  • Falling Sword (R)
    • Cooldown decreased from 80 to 60 seconds
    • No longer slows movement while airborne

Muradin Edit

  • Avatar (R)
    • Basic Attacks during Avatar no longer Stun the target
    • Health bonus increased from 1022 (+4% per level) to 1124 (+4% per level)
    • Cooldown reduced from 100 to 90 seconds
Developer Comments: The mini-stun that accompanies Muradin’s Basic Attack during Avatar has a lot of hidden power that can be extremely frustrating to play against for some Heroes, especially those with Heroics that require channeling. The main design focus of this Ability was to bolster Muradin’s survivability, so we have removed the Basic Attack mini-stun and increased his Health gain when Avatar is activated. While we realize that this is a nerf to a beloved Heroic Ability, we believe it is necessary in order to promote increased Hero diversity.
