Kel'thuzad's patch brings new skins, bundles, sprays, announcers and event quests to the Nexus. All data was obtained from community contribution at /r/heroesofthestorm. Some changes may be innacurate and we'll have to wait until next week for full patch notes.

I think this refers to March of the Black KingMarch of the Black King, right?

Wow, those reworks, man. Chromie will be even more annoying. Godamn.

But I think the Leoric rework kinda made him worse in some ways. I liked the changes to basic attack dealing more damage and splash as baseline, as well the talent that increase attack speed per minion clear. All in all, his PvE seems better but his PvP slightly worse. I'm not sure if that is what he needed.

 

Now the Morales rework seems very very interesting. Mana Hunger no more! Thank god!

But I've spotted some minor errors with linking the abilities. I think the OP meant SafeguardSafeguard below instead of Caduceus ReactorCaduceus Reactor, correct?

Thank you @Valhalen. Fixed. 

They've added some changes for Jaina. I think it's worth adding them here. =)

Losing Burning Rage on Leoric will hurt him the most, despite the wide range of changes to his kit. He's a solo laner and a bruiser who does well against other high health tanks; getting it at level 20, even with the HUGE power increase it gets, is too late for most games, and will be overshadowed by Spectral Leech if I am reading the talents right and it rolls the Entomb silence on top of the passive. 

Any change to March of the Black King? If you still can't steer his movement, or if they didn't increase the radius of the swings, then it will remain a situational ult and feel awkward to play with.

Kinda suprised no Johanna, hammer, varian skins, i thought they were chosen for the video because they would be made into creatures, cause well varian and johanna could have been ANY other hero in that video and it would have turned out the same.

So, with only number tweaks on March of the Black King and no design changes, it is still a huge trouble to hit anything without a specific team comp. And even then, you think twice before grabbing it.

All in all, I feel the Leoric changes are more nerf than a buff. I see no point in making his PvE stronger, we have specialists for this, and his PvE did not need a buff as it was already decent for a bruiser. With Xul on the rise, I see no reason in picking the new Leo over him. 

I'm a bit sad, cause Leo is one of my favorite heroes.

But then we wouldn't have seen Sgt. Hammer sucker punch Zagara right in her spider mandibles! 

My take on it is that they wanted a bit of a mirror here; Varian and Jaina were pretty tight in WoW and Johanna is about the most righteous and virtuous out of the Diablo heroes save for the angels themselves; a nice counterpoint to Death Knight Sonya, but coincidentally, Jaina vs Johanna is an extremely one sided affair in the mage's favour as well.

Unlike everyone seems to be pointing out, Leoric hasn't really been nerfed in my opinion. He just has more options now. True, Drain HopeDrain Hope doesn't heal as much and EntombEntomb has to be used more carefully now, but overall I wouldn't call it a nerf. For example, there's now a solid Skeletal SwingSkeletal Swing build, focusing on AoE damage, making Leoric stronger in team fights and giving him more waveclear. Previously, Leoric had to focus on mostly one target (usually the enemy tank), but now he'll be able to deal damage to a bunch of enemies at a time in addition to healing himself. Speaking of which, even though I'm a Leoric main all the way, I'm glad they nerfed his self-healing. It was pretty ridiculous how you could walk into a crowd of at least 3 players and get out without a care in the world. And Shroud of the Dead King will be the most ridiculous thing when you couple it with one of the best escape methods in the game, Wraith WalkWraith Walk

Chromie is easier to play, yay! Butcher doesn't snowball the game in 12 minutes flat now, double yay! Morales no longer runs out of mana every 10 seconds, triple yay! Uther doesn't make people invincible any more, quadruple yay! Lucio is a viable healer again, mega yay!

If a Hero who (objectively) needs a rework has to wait for a meme skin to get it; gg... And she got plenty of b00tyful skins before that (her Master still remains my favorite; maybe because I did all the grind; on 2 accs. It does look awesome tho; and she's so purty :3).

And to me, she looks more like Illidan rather than a dreadlord there lul

Her Post-Theramore skin is amazing, though. I wonder if she will have different lines in that skin. Her expression doesn't look as broken as she is now  WoW.

Probably because they had to keep that very "humanoid" form rather than make her full-on dreadlord, since it's only a skin!

If they really wanted to cater to the partucular meme fans, they could have done better imho. Oh well... It certainly looks eerie and creepy though (which is why I dislike it; ruining my waifu like that... >.<)

      Mastery Rings are a new feature that was added to the game in the latest balance update. They are the successor to legacy Mastery Skins that existed back then. When you reach level 15 and 25 with a certain Hero, you will be able to purchase these augmented rings for 5,000 Gold each.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’re adding a new feature to Heroes of the Storm that will allow you to charge into battle with an extra bit of flair: introducing Mastery Rings!
      Reaching level 15 with a hero you own will unlock the ability to use gold to purchase a Mastery Ring for that hero, which will be displayed in game as an extra adornment of your hero’s regular selection circle. Additionally, when you reach level 25 with that hero you can then purchase an even more distinct Mastery Ring with gold.
      FAQ
      Q: Can I get Mastery Rings for more than one hero?
      A: You can get Mastery Rings for as many heroes as you like, given than you’ve reached at least level 15 with those heroes.
      Q: Do I purchase these rings for each Hero separately?
      A: Yes. These rings signify experience playing individual heroes and let other players know that you know how to play your chosen hero, so Mastery Rings are hero-specific.
      Q: When will Mastery Rings become available?
      A: Mastery Rings are live now!

Using a Special Event dialog, you can choose one of those three quests and complete it for a Scarlet Heist Chest reward, once a day, until the event ends on December 3rd, 2019, PST. New Feature: Hero Mastery Rings A lot of you may remember the old 'Mastery Skins' and we are excited to bring back another way for players to show off their mastery of individual Heroes. With today's patch, players will be able to spend 5,000 gold to purchase augmented Hero Rings for any Hero over the levels of 15 (Level 1) and 25 (Level 2). These Mastery Rings are permanent when purchased and will be placed over the top of the normal Hero Ring, becoming visible to all players while in a match.

      General
      Many abilities that were incorrectly incrementing Healing or Self Healing scores have been fixed. Protected now contributes to Healing or Self Healing Score. A.I. should no longer become stuck in a logic loop while attempting to capture Merc camps that have enemy structures nearby. User Interface
      Fixed additional issues that caused Gem purchase dialog show blank screen. Fixed typos in Boost tooltips. Fixed an issue where player names are cut off when they have a Boost active. MAC
      Fixed an issue that would cause mouse hover outlines for some objects to render solid black. Fixed an issue that would cause area of effect circles to render with an incorrect color. The latest balance update has hit the Nexus and here are the patch notes.
