Heroes of the Storm Patch Notes: March 16, 2016

March 9 • • • • • List of Patches • • • • • March 29


Nova Edit

  • Health increased from 1,273 (+4% per level) to 1,350 (+4% per level)
  • Health Regeneration increased from 2.65 per second (+4% per level) to 2.81 per second (+4% per level)
  • Snipe (Q)
    • Cooldown decreased from 8 to 6 seconds
    • Mana cost decreased from 60 to 50
    • Perfect Shot (Talent)
      • Cooldown reduction decreased from 4 to 3 seconds
  • Pinning Shot (W)
    • Slow amount increased from 30% to 40%
    • Covert Ops (Talent)
      • Maximum slow amount increased from 50% to 60%
Developer Comments: We have been giving Nova slow and steady buffs in order to increase her viability without pushing her burst damage to uncomfortable levels. Each round of changes has shown us positive results—albeit not large ones. A lower cooldown on Snipe and a stronger slow on Pinning Shot should help Nova players secure kills more frequently while also helping her to contribute more during engagements and skirmishes.

Xul Edit

  • Basic Attack damage reduced from 115 (+4% per level) to 104 (+4% per level)
  • Raise Skeleton (Trait)
  • Spectral Scythe (Q)
    • Damage reduced from 300 (+4% per level) to 240 (+4% per level).
    • Mana cost increased from 45 to 60
  • Cursed Strikes (W)
    • Attack Speed slow amount reduced from 50% to 40%
Developer Comments: Xul deals way too much damage for the amount of utility he has in his kit, and his pushing Talents are vastly outperforming their competitors. He also has the highest win-rate currently and it’s still climbing, so we needed to be pretty heavy-handed with these nerfs.

Rehgar Edit

Developer Comments: Rehgar is too hard to kill for how much value he brings to the table. Adding more counterplay options for Ancestral Healing should help to trim down the frustrating moments when you can’t seem to catch the Shaman. We also wanted to do this without nerfing Rehgar’s Ghost Wolf form, which could cause his playstyle to feel less active.
