Upcoming Nazeebo Changes

A Nazeebo player on reddit submitted a thread where he's talking about Nazeebo's necessity of useful talents at Level 1, claiming Death RitualDeath Ritual is a must-pick and more versatility is needed. Centaurik answered the team is planning to increase Nazeebo's skill cap.

We have some plans to touch up nazeebo in the future. we are looking at ways to increase his skillcap (coughspiders cough), and you better believe we'll be taking a whack at that talent tree. We also agree in rolling in some form of Death RitualDeath Ritual baseline. I can't say when it's coming, but you could say we have it in our sights.


Medivh's "Healing Done" in Stats Screen Coming to More Heroes

Medivh has "Healing Done" in the stats screen. More Heroes will follow the same trend, namely Abathur, E.T.C. and Tyrael in an upcoming future patch.

We agree! as should ETC and Tyrael, as other astute observers have commented on! we have plans to address all of these in a near-future patch soon(tm).


Dustin Browder Tweets

Dustin has answered some interesting questions on Twitter lately and below, you'll find the most interesting questions.

Currently there are no plans for doing a muted players reset. A user tweeted that the MMR issues have been fixed and the toxicity is now declining.

It's likely that Kael'thas will see some changes, the developer team is closely watching his win rate.

Another player asked why developers mostly weaken strong talents (favorite picks) to make less popular talent choices more viable.

The "Rejoin" system is quite annoying as you need to wait for a long time to get back into the game.  This is a relict from the Starcraft engine and since Heroes of the Storm uses the same engine, a player was curious if there are plans for its removal. The developers are working on it, but there is currently no ETA.

      Blizzard started posting Hero teasers on Twitter yesterday and it's more than certain that we'll see a new Hero introduction at Gamescom. Rockyd900 viewed the source code of the first teaser and the alt image said "teaser for Mephisto" before Blizzard removed it.
      After Deckard Cain, it appears that Mephisto will be the next Hero to join the fray. Excited to see a new Diablo Hero? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
      Teaser 1
      Here we have the first teaser posted by Blizzard and Rockyd900's screenshot of the Mephisto description.
