Assassin 

Genji

L1U82J9IR3NY1493916348655.png

Talents

  • Level 4
    • Shuriken Mastery (Q)
      • Bonus damage reduced from 30 to 25
    • Dragon Claw (Active)
      • Damage required reduced from 375 to 330
      • Damage dealt increased from 180 to 190
  • Level 7
    • Dodge (Passive)
      • Cooldown increased from 8 to 12 seconds

Malthael

CRSGGDIJYFVW1493916778193.png

Abilities

  • Tormented Souls (R)
    • Cooldown increased from 80 to 100 seconds

Talents

  • Level 4
    • Throwing Shade (E)
      • Cooldown reduction increased from 2 to 4 seconds
      • Added functionality:
        • Now also reduces the Mana cost of Death Shroud on quest completion from 50 to 25
  • Level 13
    • Ethereal Existence (Trait)
      • Armor reduced from 15 to 10 per Hero hit
      • Maximum Armor bonus increased from 45 to 50
    • Inevitable End (Active)
      • Cooldown reduced from 30 to 20 seconds
  • Level 16
    • Memento Mori (Trait)
      • Damage bonus reduced from 100% to 80%
  • Level 20
    • Reaper of Souls (R)
      • Added functionality:
        • Now passively increases the duration of Tormented Souls by 1 second
Developer Comment:  Death has arrived, and he’s definitely doing his job (somewhat too well). His winrate has climbed a lot faster (and higher) than anticipated, so the majority of these changes are nerfs. In particular, there was really powerful synergy between Trait focused Talent choices and Tormented Souls. We think that by reducing the power of each individual part, it will bring this angel down to Earth.

Thrall

Divider_Hero_Thrall_Crop.png

Abilities

  • Frostwolf Resilience (Trait)
    • Heal amount increased from 210 to 223

Talents

  • Level 1
    • Rolling Thunder (Q)
      • Mana return increased from 10 to 12

      • Bonus damage decreased from 50% to 40%

Zul'jin

EPJ9RJVTT6AA1481923618065.png

      • Range increased from 7.8 to 10

  • Level 7
    • Raven Familiar (E)
      • Ravens created by this talent will now only attack Heroic targets

Probius

C8GV1YCWE9UR1490301685084.png

Abilities

  • Pylon Overcharge (R)

Support

    • Movement Speed duration reduced from 4 to 3 seconds

      • Added functionality:

Lúcio

IPDZ9IHRKBFI1485911507994.png

Abilities

  • Healing Boost (W)
    • Amp it Up Healing increased from 14.5 to 15.5

Talents

  • Level 16
    • Up the Frequency (E)
      • Cooldown per Basic Attack increased from .35 to .45 seconds
Developer Comment:  The idea here is to give back his intentional healing since we took out so much of his passive healing away. This may also hopefully help Reverse Amp/Bring it Together pick rates on their tiers as well.

Tassadar

Divider_Hero_Tassadar_Crop.png

Abilities

  • Plasma Shield (Q)
    • Lifesteal amount reduced from 45% to 40%

Talents

  • Level 1
    • Khaydarin Resonance (Q)
      • First unlock shield value bonus increased from 15% to 20%
      • Second unlock shield bonus increased from 30% to 40%

      • Damage bonus of first quest unlock reduced from 150% to 125%
  • Level 4
    • Khala’s Embrace (Q)
      • Life steal amount reduced from 90% to 75%

Uther

5W8VDU5725O81417483335719.png

Talents

  • Level 1
    • Hammer of the Lightbringer (E)
      • Cooldown reduction per Basic Attack increased from 1 to 1.5 seconds
  • Level 4
    • Pursuit of Justice (E)
      • Movement Speed increased from 20% to 25%
  • Level 7
    • Guardian of Ancient Kings (Trait)
      • Armor reduced from 75 to 50
  • Level 16
    • Benediction (Active)
      • Cooldown increased from 40 to 60 seconds
Developer Comment:  When we looked at how to nerf our Paladin, we knew that Uther was designed to be great at shutting down enemy teams with lockdown, and we want to continue with that as one of his major strengths, but Guardian of Ancient Kings negated these enemy plays too well. Statistically, it isn’t outperforming the other Talents on the tier by a significant margin unless you look at the highest levels of play, but at those levels the power of this talent could feel frustrating to play against. After these changes, we think it will be a situational pick against teams with a lot of hard disables, but may not be the best choice if the team only has 1 or 2 things that will provide the increased Armor.

  • Malthael: Casting Last Rites multiple times on the same target will no longer cause overhead visual effects from the second cast to appear untextured.

Nice to see some nerfs to many of the main offenders. The Brightwing buff is great to see; Pixie Dust was normally getting used to give speed buff to avoid incoming damage rather than prevent incoming basic attacks.

Nice to see Blizzard caring about balance by bringing out these patches at a decent rate. Bad news first then good news: Genji nerf not nearly as big enough to make any difference, the hero is still way too broken, Thrall buff just random number tweaking, the hero is still just horrible compared to every single warrior bruiser ever made, Zeratul nerf is unnecessary BS, the hero with his very high innate skill cap has not been a problem in either QM or competitive and was in the perfect spot balance-wise. Also Blizzard still REFUSES TO NERF COCOON EVEN THOUGH ITS THE SINGLE BIGGEST SOURCE OF PROBLEMS IN THE META. Then the good news: Uther nerf finally, the hero no longer makes people who are CCd become basically invulnerable, needed nerf was delivered, Brightwing buff is actually really good and might actually bring her back in the meta with shield dust + bouncy dust build, Lucio, who was in a tough spot got nice number tweaking, Tassadar got nerfed so he no longer just breaks the video game, Malthael nerf is probably big enough to make him not an issue anymore and Probius got his better ult toned down making him way less of an issue in QM and low rank HL. Overrall torn on this patch, some well needed balancing but some unnecessary stuff too, and still Blizzard refuses to nerf Cocoon.

As a Probius main who's abused Malthael in ranked these past two weeks, I'll say:

  • Finally a Probius nerf that adresses the real issue: counterplay! Killing the Pylons will be really easy now in many circumstances. (Funnily, it's the same nerf to Overcharge as between Heart of the Swarm and Legacy of the Void: can't kill a Nexus, but can a Pylon.)
  • Malthael... well, they've identified the problem (Tormented Souls, Etheral Existence, Memento Mori), but this fine-tuning will lower his winrate by 2% at most. He's staying on top, and I'll keep having fun with him while it lasts.

      A big balance update has just hit live servers.
      While the cadence of balance patches changed recently, they sure bring much more Hero chances to freshen up the meta! Below are the official patch notes.

      Tank

      Anub'arak
      Abilities
      Level 1 Legion of Beetles [Trait] Cooldown to spawn a Beetle increased from 8 seconds to 12 seconds Level 10 Cocoon [R2] Health reduced from 32 to 28 This reduces the time that the Cocoon naturally decays from 8 to 7 seconds
      Blaze
      Base
      Jet Propulsion [E] Cooldown reduced from 9 to 8 seconds Mana cost reduced from 45 to 40 Pyromania [Trait] Armor bonus increased from 35 to 40 Abilities
      Level 4 Oil Dispersal [W] Additional functionality: Each enemy Hero hit with Flame Stream reduces the cooldown of Oil Spill by 1 second and refunds 5 Mana Feeding the Flame [Q]  Removed Level 10 Bunker Drop [R1] Cooldown reduced from 80 to 70 seconds Mana cost reduced from 80 to 70 Level 13 Suppressive Fire [Q] Spell Power reduction increased from 20% to 25% per stack Level 16 Thermal Protection [E] Cooldown reduction reduced from 1.5 to 1.25 seconds
      ETC
      Abilities
      Level 1 Guitar Hero [E] Additional functionality: Basic Attacks now increase the duration of Guitar Solo by .25 seconds Healing reduced from 50% to 40% Block Party [Trait] Physical Armor amount increased from 50 to 75 Level 4 Speed Metal [Trait] Bonus Movement Speed increased from 15% to 20% Level 7 Hammer-on [Passive] Bonus damage increased from 35% to 40% Developer Comment: Some of ETC’s talents could use some beefing up, so we’re milking this opportunity to bring ETC more into the meta so he can better compete with the likes of Anub’arak, Diablo, and Garrosh.  Don’t worry, if these changes butcher his balance we’ll take stock of the situation and nerf him appropriately.

      Garrosh
      Base
      Wrecking Ball [E] Cooldown increased from 14 to 16 seconds Abilities
      Level 1 Unrivaled Strength [E] Damage bonus increased from 75% to 125% Body Check [Active] Slow amount reduced from 30% to 35% No longer deals bonus damage or Slow amount based on Armor Up’s bonus Additional functionality: Now causes enemies to receive 40% reduced Healing for the next 3 seconds Level 7 Brute Force [Active] Removed Level 10 Decimate [R1] Slow amount increased from 30% to 40% Level 16 Mortal Combo [Q] Cooldown reduction increased from 9 to 10 seconds Additional Functionality: Now also gives Garrosh cooldown reduction if an enemy Hero is hit by Groundbreaker within 3 seconds of being hit by Wrecking Ball. Level 20 Deadly Calm [R2] Damage reduction increased from 20% to 25% Developer Comment: While Garrosh is incredibly popular due to his ability to heavily displace enemy Heroes, he is not outperforming other Heroes in the game, sitting at a 48% win rate at higher levels of play in the hands of people who are skilled with him specifically. At lower levels of play his win rate drops to 47.2%, where he wins the award for being the second lowest win-rate Warrior in the game.  We’re slightly nerfing Wrecking Ball’s cooldown to help address his high popularity and frustrations playing against him, and buffing some of his under-picked talents to better compete with their peers to help stabilize his talent tree.

      Johanna

      Base
      Condemn [W] Damage increased from 55 to 58 Abilities
      Level 1 Hold Your Ground [Trait] Cooldown reduction increased from 4 to 5 seconds Shield bonus increased from 50% to 60 Level 4 Eternal Retaliation [W] Cooldown reduction per enemy hit increased from .5 to .75 seconds Maximum targets reduced from 10 to 8 Zealous Glare [E] Shield Glare duration increased from .75 seconds to 1 second Level 20 Radiating Faith [R2] Additional functionality: Additional enemies hit by Blessed Shield are now Stunned for its full duration Developer Comment: Johanna is a solid, versatile Warrior that brings a strong frontline presence to her team.  In addition to giving her some talent buffs, we’re increasing the damage of Condemn to further push her unique role as a Warrior who brings a considerable amount of waveclear.

      Mal'Ganis

      Abilities
      Level 1 Winged Guard [W] Physical Armor bonus increased from 50 to 75 Vampiric Aura [Trait] Healing increased from 10% to 15% of Physical damage dealt Time to Feed [Passive] Healing increased from 48 to 52 Level 4 Might of Sargeras [W] Armor bonus duration increased from 2 seconds to 2.5 seconds Level 7 Black Claws [Q] Damage bonus increased from 45% to 60% Spreading Plague [E] Duration increased from 4 to 5 seconds Nightmare Fuel [Passive] No longer grants Mal’ganis 30% bonus damage while in a bush or after leaving a bush Additional Functionality: Increase the duration of Night Rush by .75 seconds when it is cast from a bush Bonus damage when waking Sleeping targets increased from 150% to 200% Level 16 Frenzied Assault [Passive] Bonus Attack Speed increased from 40% to 50% Bonus Physical damage increased from 15% to 20% Developer Comment: We’ve nerfed Mal’ganis multiple times since his release, and he has fallen off a bit too much since our last round.  These buffs to various talents are meant to increase his overall effectiveness while also rounding out his talent tiers to be more competitive.
      Muradin

      Abilities
      Level 1 Changed the order of Muradin’s Level 1 talents to be the same as other Heroes (Q, W, E, etc.) Third Wind [Trait] Health Restoration rate increased from 83 to 90, and the improved rate from 166 to 180 Level 4 Symbiote Additional functionality: Enemy Heroes hit grant an additional stack of his baseline quest Symbiote [W] Additional functionality: Every enemy Hero hit reduces Muradin’s Heroic Ability cooldown by 5%Enemy Level 7 Heavy Impact [E] Slow duration increased from .75 to 1.25 seconds Skullcracker [Passvie] Bonus damage increased from 70% to 90% Level 13 Thunder Strike [W] Additional functionality: Now also increases Muradin's Dwarf Toss Armor duration from 2 to 4 seconds Bronzebeard Rage [Passive] Damage increased from 19 to 20 Additional functionality: Now also heals Muradin for 75% of the damage dealt Developer Comment: We’re buffing some of Muradin’s underutilized talents, and giving all of his Level 13 options some kind of survivability so that they better compete with Healing Static.

      Stitches

      Abilities
      Level 4 Chop Chop [W] Duration increased from 5 to 6 seconds Level 13 Digestive Juices [E] No longer increases the damage of Devour to enemy Heroes Additional functionality: Hitting enemy Heroes with Devour reduces its cooldown by 5 seconds Gas Flare [Passive] Bonus damage duration after hitting enemy Heroes with Hook increased from 4 to 8 seconds Level 16 Meat Hook [Q] Bonus Healing increased from 16% to 20% Developer Comment: Stitches like buffs.  We like Stitches.  We give Stitches buffs.  When Stitches happy, you happy too!
      Bruiser

      Imperius
      Abilities
      Level 1 Consuming Flame [W] Damage bonus changed from 125% to 100% This slightly reduces the bonus damage at Level 1 from 281 to 260, but at Level 20 will change from 454 to 54 Level 7 Flash of Anger [Q] Adjusted functionality: Consuming a mark from Celestial Charge deals damage around the target and gives Imperius a Shield for 300 over 4 seconds Damage reduced from 198 to 180
      Malthael
      Abilities
      Level 4 Throwing Shade [E] Quest requirement reduced from 15 to 12 Level 10 Tormented Souls [R1] Mana cost reduced from 100 to 20 Level 16 Mortality [W] Damage increased from 6% to 8% maximum Health Ragnaros

      Base
      Health increased from 2000 to 2075 Health Regeneration increased from 4.168 to 4.323 Basic Attack damage increased from 171 to 180 Abilities
      Level 20 Flames of Sulfuron [R1] Bonus Stun duration increased from .5 seconds to 1 second Slow duration increased from 2 to 2.5 seconds Submerge [Active] Cooldown reduced from 90 to 60 seconds Developer Comment: It’s been awhile since we’ve reevaluated the Firelord’s place in the Nexus.  Overall he’s doing fairly well, but we felt he could use a small buff to compete with the current meta heroes in the game.  We also saw this as an opportunity to help his Level 20 pick rates out, so we’re buffing Flames of Sulfuron to be a fairly meaningful Stun increase and increasing the uptime of Submerge.

      Rexxar

      Base
      Misha’s Health reduced from 1762 to 1620 Misha’s Health Regeneration reduced from 3.671 to 3.375 Misha’s Health scaling increased from 4% to 4.75% Misha’s Health Regeneration scaling increased from 4% to 4.75% Developer Comment: These changes are to make Rexxar’s laning phase a little less overwhelming for the majority of opponents, particularly on maps with control points.  We're slightly lowering Misha's power in the early game, but increasing her scaling so that she is less powerful in early-game trades, but is still a threat in the mid to late portions of the game.
      Healer

      Ana
      Base
      Biotic Grenade [W] Allied Healing amount reduced from 166 to 152
      Anduin

      Base
      Flash Heal [Q] Mana cost reduced from 30 to 25 Divine Star [Q]  Mana cost increased from 45 to 50 Abilities
      Level 1 Renew [Q] Healing increased from 23 to 26 per second Pursued by Grace [Passive] Healing increased from 28 to 33 Bold Strategy [Passive] Cooldown increase increased from 1 to 2 seconds Level 4 Holy Reach [E] Bonus Basic Attack damage increased from 50% to 75% Healing increased from 90 to 100 Level 7 Binding Heal [Q] Healing increased from 80 to 95 Power Word: Shield [W] Shielding increased from 165 to 172 Level 10 Lightbomb [R2] Shielding increased from 140 to 165 Level 13 Enchant Boots - Lion's Speed [Trait] Movement Speed increased from triple to quadruple while Leap of Faith’s cooldown is available Push Forward! [Passive] Maximum Movement Speed increased from 15% to 20% Movement Speed per enemy hit increased from 2% to 2.5% Level 16 Evenhanded Blessings [Q] Cooldown reduction increased from 40% to 50% Holy Nova [W] Damage increased from 100 to 105 Healing increased from 100 to 105 Inner Focus [Active] Cooldown reduction per Hero hit with Divine Star reduced from 10 to 8 seconds Lightwell [Active] Cooldown increased from 70 to 80 seconds
      Deckard Cain
      Abilities
      Level 20 Perfect Gems [W] Horadric Cube cooldown reduction increased from 5 to 6 seconds Respect the Elderly [R1] Silence and Blind duration increased from 2 to 3 seconds Morenados! [R2] Cooldown reduction increased from 6 to 10 seconds Developer Comment: Deckard has been performing well since his last round of buffs.  These changes are to increase the competitiveness of his Level 20 talents, which are all currently being outshone by Bottomless Flask.

      Kharazim

      Base
      Radiant Dash [Q] Mana cost reduced from 30 to 25 Deadly Reach [E] Mana cost reduced from 50 to 45 Abilities

      Stukov
      Abilities
      Level 1 Fetid Touch [W] Additional functionality: After hitting 15 enemy Heroes with Weghted Pustule, remove half of its Mana cost Level 7 Targeted Excision [Trait] Additional functionality: Also reduces the cooldowns of Stukov’s Basic Abilities by 1.5 seconds Level 13 It Hungers [E] Enemy Heroes hit required reduced from 12 to 10 Poppin' Pustules [Trait] Additional functionality: Enemies hit by the explosion also have a Weighted Pustule applied to them Level 16 Universal Carrier [Q] Healing reduction on Healing Pathogen reduced from 50% to 40% Support
