Lunara Rework Spotlight: May 11

Recommended Posts


The First Daughter of Cenarion will be reworked in the latest content patch alongside Diablo.

The goal of the rework is to increase her talent diversity, enhance wisp abilities and offer diverse and rewarding approaches to combat.

Rework Highlights

  • Lunara's WispWisp ability now has more baseline strategic potential. After hiding in a bush for a while, her Wisp's vision range grows larger.
  • Lunara's older wisp talents have been replaced with Sentinel Wisp (available at level 1). The talent increases the bonuses granted after her Wisp has hidden, allowing it to see over obstacles and spot Stealthed enemies, all at an increased range.
    • After remaining in a bush for 5 seconds, Wisp's vision radius is increased by 200% and reveals the surrounding area.
  • Endless Spores (new talent) decreases the cooldown of her Crippling SporesCrippling Spores ability when she's poisoned two or more enemies at once.
  • Accelerated Contamination (new talent) reduces the cooldown for Noxious BlossomNoxious Blossom.
  • Both talents pair well with Splintered SpearSplintered Spear which allows Lunara to spread her toxin to up to four foes with a single basic attack.
  • Siphoning ToxinSiphoning Toxin is now available at level 4, allowing Lunara to maximize her healing as she stacks poison on foes.
  • Intensifying Toxin (new talent) greatly increases the damage of Nature's ToxinNature's Toxin when enemies have three stacks.

Interesting ideas, even if they are quite simple. The best thing is freeing up a whole tier, so that we can have more flexibility.

Think you meant to say Cenarius there.

That’s an interesting way of reworking Raynor

Long live the glorified lane minion. Hope when they do rework him to preserve his banter with Diablo from the tutorial. "That's one more for me, Red!" lelol ecksdee

Interesting rework. I don't like that they push for Splintered SpearSplintered Spear to become even more of a dominant choice, always liked Wild VigorWild Vigor better. Intensifying Toxin with Unfair AdvantageUnfair Advantage... RIP in Pepsi

Detailed analysis:

At Lv 1 we have:

Sentinel Wisp (new)

Natural Perspective

Hippity Hop: Increase Dryet's Swiftness bonus (new)

So, looks like Lunara has a 'Wolf Run' now. Honestly, Sentinel Wisp looks like the weakest choice out of these 3. 

At Lv 4 we have:

Blossom Swell (Increase Noxious Blossom range and radius) (moved from Lv 1)

Siphoning Toxin (added function: When an enemy Hero has 3 stacks of Nature's Toxin, increase the healing by 22 per second.) (aka 200% increase) (moved from Lv 7)

Nature's Culling (moved from Lv 7)

Imo, if you want to pick up Endless Spores later, Blossom Swell is gonna be your default choice here, since it improves Noxious Blossom's reliably to hit multiple heroes. 

At Lv 7 we have:

Splintered Spear

Choking Pollen (moved from Lv 16)

Wild Vigor

These 3 talents looks like the same as the current ones. 

At Lv 20 we have:

Forest's Wraith (Thronwood Vine applies Nature's Toxin)

Boundless Stride

Intensifying Toxin (new)

Galloping Gait

Here's something very interesting: Forest's Wraith makes Thronwood Vine applies Nature's Toxin, which means, the original Thronwood Vine DOES NOT apply Nature's Toxin anymore. This is a pretty huge nerf to this heroic. Even then, if you want to build around spreading poison to multiple heroes (with talents like Splintering Spear and Endless Spores), you're still going to pick Thronwood Vine and Forest's Wraith. 

We also have a W talent at Lv 13 (which is likely going to be Endless Spores) and a trait talent at Lv 16, which is not the case right now.

Even though TLV and Raynor are extremely outdated, they still decided to rework an already powerful assassin...

I'm still hoping for new rework annoucements so these won't feel pointless.

      In Storm League, rank is always updated by taking the change in rating and determining the equivalent number of rank points to reward. While the Heroes team is quite happy with how it turned out, the system is causing problems in Bronze 5.
      In Bronze 5, players gain/lose far fewer points per game than players in other leagues and divisions. The underlying problem makes it harder to climb out of Bronze 5 and causes frustration and bad gameplay experience. The team is working on ways to improve it and provided an explanation of why this is happening.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With the launch of Storm League season 1 we have seen a dramatic improvement in rank distribution. One of the primary changes in this release was in how rank is determined. In the past, rank and rating were two entirely different concepts, both of which were updated differently after each game. It was very common for a player's rank and rating to diverge throughout each season which could cause the matchmaking system to struggle to find games.
      With the changes introduced this season, rank is always updated by taking the change in rating and determining the equivalent number of rank points to reward. This leaves very few ways rating and rank can diverge and results in most players being shown a number equivalent to their rating.
      Overall, we are very happy with how the changes are looking; however, we are aware of the inconsistencies players are currently experiencing in Bronze 5. With the new design, players in Bronze 5 will gain/lose far fewer points per game than players in all of the other leagues and divisions. The reason for this is a bit technical but we wanted to take the opportunity to elaborate on what's going on.
      Under the hood, matchmaking rating is simply a number on a bell curve. Every league and division encompasses a range of values on the same curve. For example, if the overall bell curve ranges from -10.0 to 10.0 and the range 1.0 to 1.5 maps to Gold 1, then a player with a rating of 1.25 will have the equivalent rank of Gold 1 & 500/1000 points. These numbers are intentionally made up as the real ones are always subject to change but the idea is the same.
      The reason for the decrease in points awarded in Bronze 5 is that the range of ratings that maps to Bronze 5 is much larger than other divisions. The difference is that this much larger range of ratings still maps to the same number of rank points. As a result, despite being rewarded the same change in matchmaking rating, the rank points awarded may be lower. This is visualized by the graph below:
      We understand that this inconsistency is a negative experience for players so we will be exploring some ways to improve it.
      Thanks for participating in Storm League and providing your feedback!

      Blizzard fixed the Loot Chest display issue and Qhira's Fatal Wounds no longer cause Blood Rage to deal bonus damage to enemies with less than 5 stacks.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’ve just released a Heroes of the Storm patch in order to address a few live bugs. Read on for details.
      Bug Fixes
      Qhira Fatal Wounds no longer causes Blood Rage to deal bonus damage to enemies that have less than 5 stacks. Fatal Wounds no longer causes the activated portion of Blood Rage to deal bonus damage. User Interface
      Ranked: Post-game point breakdown animation now properly counts up or down. Season names now properly display in order on the Profile. Fixed an issue where Blizzard Checkout could fail to load when purchasing Gems. The Loot Chest award animation no longer improperly displays two Loot Chests granted when a Hero Levels and a quest is completed within the same game.

      Heroes of the Storm is currently experiencing an issue with Loot Chests. The display issue causes players to see more Loot Chests than they were supposed to receive, but it's important to note that you're not missing Loot Chests because this is just a purely cosmetic bug that does not affect the total number of acquired Loot Chests.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hey everyone!
      We’ve gotten a lot of reports regarding Loot Chests and I wanted to take a moment to respond here. We are currently aware of a display issue that is causing the Loot Chest popup to show that you were granted more chests than you were supposed to receive. It is important to note - you are not missing a Loot Chest, this is purely a display issue and does not impact the total number of Loot Chests you receive.
      Since we introduced Loot Chests and our new Progression system in Heroes 2.0, leveling up a Hero will grant different types of Loot Chests with increasing rarity depending on your player level. For each level hit, players will earn 1 Common Loot Chest, every 5 levels will then grant a Rare Loot Chest, and every 25 levels will finally unlock an Epic Loot Chest. For every 10 levels you earn for a specific Hero you will earn a Hero Specific Loot Chest for that Hero. With the exception of Special Events, Hero Specific Chests are one of the only ways to get more than 1 Loot Chest per level.
      With the information above, if you are seeing the wrong type of chest awarded, or a Hero Specific Chest not being granted, this would be a different issue than the display issue mentioned above. Please make a post on our Forums and we can investigate these reports further. Before posting please make sure to provide the following information:
      Make sure to check the Loot tab. If you have more than three types of Loot Chests, use the arrows to turn the carousel and confirm the chest is missing. Please include the Account Level, the Hero you leveled, and what level the Hero got. Thank you so much for your help!
