Patch 6.2 - Developer Intervju
Vanion je imao prilike da sedne i uradi intervju sa Ion Hazzikostas danas. Najinteresantnije detalje izdvojili smo u transkriptu dole, ali uvek preporučujemo da preslušate ceo video zapis.

  • Hellfire Citadel is more linear than Blackrock Foundry, but there is still choice and variety. Once you get to the second floor, you can choose which order you want to work on the bosses before going through Mannoroth to Archimonde.
  • There are quests like Well of Souls that allow you to skip part of the raid after you have killed bosses a few times.
  • Mythic Archimonde may have some interesting, unexpected, and new things happen once he is at low health.
  • There is no requirement to have killed Archimonde on Heroic before entering Mythic. Restrictions like this have existed in the past, but they were easily bypassed by inviting any player who had killed the boss on Heroic.
  • When the team was planning Warlords, Grommash was set up as the leader of the Iron Horde and the final boss. As they told the story and started working on Hellfire Citadel, they decided it wouldn't be a satisfying direction to go in. Players had just finished a raid zone full of Orcs and had killed another Hellscream. The real evil and more interesting character is Gul'dan and the influence of the Legion.
  • "Is Gul'dan dead or alive?" - "That's a good question"

Legendary Items
  • Once you have your legendary ring, the Crystallized Fel will drop from Archimonde on any difficulty. This will scale up the proc and stats, allowing guilds to get slightly stronger every week.
  • The legendary quest previously required you to get 900 legendary quest items, which means you always got some from every boss. This time around, only 33 are required. This means you won't get one from every boss, which may not feel as great but it is tuned to be slightly faster than previous collection steps.
  • Most players should be able to collect all of the Tome of Chaos in a month or so.
  • Raid loot from Garrison missions was exciting, but it devalued participation in the actual raids and undercut the reward structure. When guilds finally moved into Mythic Blackrock Foundry later in the raiding cycle, they already had several Mythic items from garrison missions already, so it wasn't as rewarding as it should have been.
  • The bosses that dropped tokens in previous tiers dropped too many loot items in total, as the token items were separate from the normal loot. The team changed how the tier tokens were dropped in Patch 6.2, but by the time they realized bosses were not dropping enough tokens it was too late. It will be hotfixed for the new raid reset.
  • Figuring out how old style legendary items would fit into current itemization, class balance, and how the game works today is challenging. Creating a legendary weapon that only works for some classes and specs wouldn't work well.

  • Timewalker dungeons are tuned to be easier on purpose, but part of the problem is that classes have so many more capabilities now.
  • The old Shattered Halls could have a Prot Warrior tank who has no AoE threat, just tab Sundering. Situations like that made the dungeons more challenging. Most people didn't have AoE and AoE threat, so tanks couldn't hold threat on all of the mobs at the same time, making CC necessary.
  • Some of the Timewalking dungeons are a little bit too easy right now, such as Black Morass. Arcatraz is tuned a little bit better.
  • The team would like to expand Timewalking to Cataclysm dungeons, as well as expanding the number of dungeons covered by the system in Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King.
  • Figuring out where Timewalking raids would fit in the reward structure is a big part of what it would take to add them. If you are going to form a larger group, you may as well go and raid current content. There are a lot of questions to answer, such as who is the audience, where do the rewards fit in, should you be doing this raid instead of Hellfire Citadel, and is it something you do to gear up for current raids.

Naval Missions
  • If you fail a Naval Mission, the mission will still be there for you to try again.
  • There aren't any plans to reduce the cost of Naval Equipment right now, but the team is keeping an eye on how players are using the items.
  • Players want to maximize their chance of success on every mission, but the team envisioned players just countering the basic ship types and some of the threats, but not every single threat.
  • If players feel that 500 resources are worth it for a small boost in success chance on every mission and actually buy the equipment, adjusting the costs is possible.

  • The team hears the feedback from people that enjoyed solo play in Mists of Pandaria and found it lacking in Draenor.
  • Part of the problem is many of the rewards out in the world were moved into the garrison.
  • In Patch 6.2 they took steps towards fixing things by adding content to the world in Tanaan Jungle and more will be done in future content.
  • The team has been working on Hellfire Citadel and Tanaan Jungle since November 2014, so they were limited in how they could respond to more recent feedback.
  • The Patch 6.2 content was designed in the same mold as the original Warlords of Draenor content, so it feels like the team wasn't listening to feedback, even though they are.
  • Things that are being worked on now will be much more to players liking and the team has taken the feedback to heart.

  • Patch 6.2.x with flying should be on the PTR within the next couple of weeks. It should go live not months and months from now, but some number of weeks.
  • There are no current plans to make all of the Baleful items account wide right now, but it is something that was discussed. If you are playing in Tanaan and already well geared all of the Baleful items aren't useful for you, which doesn't feel great.

Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury Mouse Review

Postoji jako malo poznatih imena za PC periferija a da je veći od Logitecha. Tokom godina svako ko je koristio PC računar, mora da je naišao bar na jedan njihov uredjaj, bilo da je kao entuzijsta kupio njihov uredjaj ili kao kancelarijski radnik koji na svom poslovnom računaru koristi Logitech tastaturu ili miš. Zbog tržišta i raznih tipova korisnika računara, Logitech je morao da se i dosta fokusira na njihovu gaming G seriju. Zato sada imamo prilike da testiramo jedan od novijih Logitech G serija miševa - G402 Hyperion Fury.

Sa G402 Logitech se dosta agresivno zauzeo za cenu i kao rezultat smo dobili kompaktnu, ali elegantnu kutiju sa solidnim mišem unutra i par letaka. Za software kako bi najbolje podesili miš za upotrebu morali smo da otvorimo Logitech Support sajt i da preuzmemo najnoviju verziju drajvera, ili bolje rečeno Logitech Gaming Software, o kome ćemo reći više posle opisa samog miša.

Logitech G402

Površinski deo Logitech G402 miša možete pogledati slici gore. Uglavnom je napravljen od plastike sa teksturnom površinom i G Logo koji svetli plavom bojom kada je miš uključen. Levi i desni tasteri mogu da izdrže 20 miliona klika, a pored izdržljivosti tu je i garancija 2 godine. Miš možemo da kažemo da je iste veličine kao i legendalni MX518, ili njegov stariji brat G400 - 136x72x41mm (LxWxH), a njegova težina je ukupno 108 grama, sa kablom ukupno 144grama. Kada smo spomenuli kabl, on je zaštićen gumom i dugačak je 1.5 metara i završava se sa USB 2.0 konektorom.

Na levoj strani Logitech G402 miša možemo videti gumeni grip na kojoj Vaš palac ima lepo i udobno da sedi i na kome se nalaze tri dodatna tastera, dok je na desnoj strani imamo slični slučaj gde možemo opustiti domali i malić prst, ali bez dodatnih tastera. Kao i obično na Logitech gaming miševima imamo dva DPI tastera koji se nalaze na levom tasteru i služe Vam da menjate brzinu miša koju podesite preko Logitech Gaming Software (Odmah do njih nalazi se i indikator gde možete videti koji ste profil podesili). Takodje bitno da pomenemo je i treći taster "Sniper Button", koji odmah podesi default DPI koji ste vi odredili za maksimalnu tačnost pri nišanjenju u FPS igrama.

Kada se osvrnemo na bazu G402 miša, imamo četri nožice koji nam garantuju da će proći 250km i koji nam nude statički koeficijent trenja .09 µ (k) sa dinamičkim koeficijentom od .14 µ (s) (testirano na drvenoj podlozi). Optički senzor nalazi se na samom centru baze miša i njegov DPI ide od 240 do maksimalnih 4000 sa maksimalnom akceleracijom 16G i maksimalnom brzinom 500ips. Takodje ispod haube ovog miša nalazi se i 32bitni ARM procesor sa malim prostorom za podatke gde možemo da čuvamo profile miša.


Logitech Gaming Software control panel možete skinuti sa njihovog sajta koji se vrlo lako instalira za par minuta. U toku instalacije dobili smo i dodatne opcije da instaliramo Ventrilo Chat. Čim završite instalaciju možete otvoriti glavni prozor programa, i prvo što smo uradili pre samog podešavanja miša otišli smo u Settings kako bi proverili da li je Logitech izbacio nove firmaware drajvere za G402 miša, što možete videti na slici gore.

Na glavnom delu ekrana programa na samom dnu možete videti koji Logitech Gaming uredjaji su povezani na Vaš računar u ovom slučaju Logitech G402. Klikom na sliku miša dobijamo glavni meni gde možemo podesiti 8 tastera na ovom Logitech G402 kao i DPI i report rate. Pored toga možete podesiti osvetljenje logoa na mišu i DPI status. Finalni glavni ekran nam dozvoljava da uključimo ili isključimo Fusion Engine.

Korisničko Iskustvo i Zaključak

Šta je uopšte Fusion osobina koja dolazi uz ovog miša? U suštini on će ubrzati vaš 4000 DPI senzor uz pomoće akcelerometara. Ovo je dobar pristu da se napravi brzi miš sa kojim nije bilo nikakvih problema pri korišćenju ove nove osobine (Ovo najbolje možete pogledati na zvaničnom Logitech Videu). Predpostavljamo da će veoma malo korisnika koristiti ovu tehnologiju, ali uglavnom su to FPS igrači koji vole da igraju na optičkim miševima, i žele dodatne brzine koju optika ne može da pruži danas. Za klasičnu kancelarijsku upotrebu, DPI podešavanja su uvek dobrodošla, i uvek ih imamo minimum 3 nivoa, dok će igrači koristi i dodatni Sniper button za bolju preciznost.

Što se tiče ove nove funkcije mislimo da je to nešto novo za ljubitelje gaminga i optičkih miševa, ali nije i toliko potrebna. Na drugom mestu ovaj miš ima lep set tastera koji su odličnog osećaja kada se koriste, tri tastera su odmah pored palca i uvek su lako bili dostupni. Teksturna površina na površini miša kao i na stranicama nam se jako svidela i možemo reći da je ovo jedan vrlo odličan i udoban miš, što mu dajemo jedan veliki plus kao i njegovoj lakoj težini.

Na kraju došli smo i do cene ovog miša. Logitech G402 dostupan je preko zvaničnog sajta za $59.99/£49.99 dok mu u Srbiji ide cena od 6500~ dinara pa na gore, što možemo uvrstiti u cenu srednjih klasa miševa. Za ovu cenu možemo reći da dobijamo jedan kvalietan miš sa dobrim performansama i odličnim softwareom. Sve u svemu miš jake srednje klase koji bi svima preporučili.

Hellfire Citadel Loot, Patch 6.2 Hotfixevi - 25 Jun, Salvage Yard Nerf

Hellfire Citadel Loot
Ovog puta moraćete da se potrudite da bi dobili bolje Naval loot misije. Od sada Mythic HFC Boss killovi davaće Mythic caches, dok će Heroic davati samo Heroic. Hellfire Citadel Trash Loot je automatski podešen na personalni loot.

Salvage Yard Nerf

I totally get that the rewards were really good, and now they are not as good, and... that's bad because we all like good rewards for little effort, but the goal of balance is not to have one clear path of least resistance, especially considering the gameplay it involved were simply Garrison missions. It was impactful enough a change though that we waited until 6.2 instead of changing it earlier through a hotfix.

We’ve enabled the Public Test Realm for the next seven days so that we can ensure the stability of our next Heroes of the Storm patch, as well as offer you a chance to test some of the new content and changes it contains before the update is released next week. There are several things you’ll want to understand about the PTR before you dive headlong into testing, so we kindly ask that you take a moment to review the items listed below:

  • Important Notes about the PTR
    • This iteration of the PTR is largely intended to make sure everything in the next Heroes patch is working correctly before it is released. While we continue to welcome player feedback during this PTR phase, we are largely focused on uncovering bugs, and changes based on feedback will likely not be incorporated  until future patches are released.
    • Any purchases you’ve made in the live version of the game will be available for use on the PTR, including your Heroes, Mounts, and Skins.
      • The same free-to-play Hero Rotation that’s available in the current version of the game will be available on the PTR.
      • However, please note that the in-game Shop has been disabled on the PTR, and no purchases can be made using real money or Gold.
      • The Butcher is not available for play or purchase during this PTR phase.
    • Your Hero and Player Levels, Gold, progression rewards, and any other content you’ve unlocked in Heroes of the Storm thus far will not transfer over to the PTR.
      • Additionally, Hero and Player Levels, Gold, rewards, and other content unlocks earned on the PTR will not transfer over to the current version of the game when the PTR is closed.
  • How to access the PTR
    • Players who wish to log in to the PTR can do so using the region selector found just above the big blue Play button on the Battle.net application.
      • Click the region selector to pull up the region list.
      • Select “PTR: Heroes of the Storm” from the region list, and then click Install.
      • Once your installation completes, simply click play to log in to the PTR.
    • Please note: Players must have installed Heroes of the Storm and logged in to the game at least once in order to gain access to the PTR. If the PTR is not available using the steps above, try logging in to Heroes, then close the game client, and attempt to launch the PTR again.
  • If you encounter any bugs while playing on the PTR, please head to the PTR Bug Report forum to share your experiences with us.
  • Complete patch notes, listing everything that’s available for testing right now on the Heroes of the Storm PTR, can be found below.


Kill the Treasure Goblins!

It seems that mischievous Treasure Goblins have snuck into the Nexus alongside the arrival of the Burning Hells. These devious creatures are intent on pilfering as much gold as they can carry, and while their numbers are yet unknown, the fortunes they've scavenged must be returned! Adventurers that manage to slay any Treasure Goblins they encounter during the Eternal Conflict will be handsomely rewarded. A Treasure Goblin will do anything in its power to evade those it deems hostile, so dispose of these timid beings swiftly, lest they open a portal and slip away!

  • Players will receive a Special Event Quest titled: “Kill a Treasure Goblin!” each day during the Eternal Conflict event.
    • Before the start of a match, any players with an active Special Event Quest will cause a Treasure Goblin to spawn at a random location near their team’s Core.
    • Kill the Treasure Goblin before the pregame timer reaches 0, or it will open a portal and escape the Battleground.
    • Any players with an active Special Event Quest that manage to kill a Treasure Goblin before it escapes will receive 100 Gold for their efforts at the end of the match.
    • Treasure Goblins may spawn on any Battleground, in any matchmaking game mode (Versus A.I., Quick Match, Hero League, Team League).
    • This Special Event Quest is available to all players, whether or not they’ve unlocked Daily Quests by reaching Player Level 6.
    • While players are invited to kill as many Treasure Goblins as they can, this Special Event Quest can only be completed once per day. Incomplete Quests do not stack.

New Portrait Rewards

  • Facebook Portrait
    • The Heroes of the Storm Facebook Page has reached 1 Million Likes! To help celebrate this social media milestone, all players who log in to the game before our next major patch arrives will receive a new, Facebook-themed portrait. Thank you for your support!
  • Golden Tiger Portrait
    • Any players that redeem the Golden Tiger Mount key found in the Heroes of the Storm Starter Pack will receive an exclusive new Golden Tiger portrait.
      • This portrait will also be retroactively granted to players who redeemed their Golden Tiger Mount key prior to today’s patch.



The conflict between the High Heavens and the Burning Hells has spilled into the Nexus, breeding a new Battleground that is equal parts righteous and wicked. Angels, Demons, and now Heroes clash in ceaseless combat in their struggle for dominance over the Battlefield of Eternity.

  • Battlefield of Eternity is a two-lane Battleground featuring two massive Immortals that battle endlessly at its center, and teams must compete to defeat the opposing Immortal.
  • Once its foe has been toppled, the victorious Immortal will be restored to full Health, and proceed to seek out enemy Structures, attacking down the lane with the most remaining defenses.
  • An attacking Immortal will also gain a Shield, proportionate to the amount of Health it had remaining at the end of the battle.
    • The Immortal will perform ranged attacks, which each consume a portion of its Shield. Taking damage will also drain the Immortal’s Shield.
    • Once its Shield has been expended, the Immortal will only attack at melee range.

New Mercenaries

  • FallenShaman
    • These malformed demons never stray too far from a pack of Fallen Hounds, and will quickly resurrect any Hounds that are killed in combat. Those who value their souls would be wise to first destroy the Shaman before targeting its Hound companions.
  • Khazra
    • The half human, half goat creatures that inhabit Battlefield of Eternity are tough, ranged attackers that won’t hesitate to rain spears on their foes. Defeat the Khazra at their camps to harness their destructive appetite before the enemy team.

New Battleground, More Often

  • Starting today, the pool of Battlegrounds available in all modes, except Custom Games, will be temporarily limited to the following:
    • Battlefield of Eternity
    • Sky Temple
    • Tomb of the Spider Queen
    • Cursed Hollow
  • This has been done to increase the frequency with which players encounter the new Battleground, Battlefield of Eternity.
  • During this time, players can still select and play on any Battleground they wish using Custom Games.
  • All Battlegrounds, including Battlefield of Eternity, will once again be made available for play in all matchmaking game modes on Tuesday, July 7.



  • Many Hero and Mount preview panels in the Shop have received updated camera angles, as well as additional lighting polish.
  • AOE Cursors have received additional polish.


  • Various Battleground assets have received additional visual polish.
  • Various Battleground assets have received additional optimization to help improve performance.
  • Lighting during the map event on Garden of Terror has been changed to improve overall visual quality and clarity.

    • Brightwing’s in-game Hero portrait has received animation polish.
  • Hero Abilities
    • Various Hero Abilities have received additional optimization.

      • Tychus – Drakken Laser Drill (R)
      • Uther – Blessed Champion (Talent)

  • Even the music that plays while viewing the out of game menus has taken a foreboding turn with the Eternal Conflict’s fierce arrival to Heroes of the Storm.
    • Enable music in the Sound Options menu (or press CTRL+M) to listen as the sounds of Sanctuary clash with those of the Nexus.


  • New music has been added for the Battlefield of Eternity Battleground.
  • In-game music for the Sky Temple, Tomb of the Spider Queen, and Garden of Terror Battlegrounds has been updated.



  • Notifications that appear near the top-right corner of the out-of-game menus, such as party invitations and promotional rewards, have received updated art.

Hero Progression

  • Several Hero Level rewards have been slightly altered:
    • Hero Level 9 -- A new 750 Gold reward has been added.
      • This Gold reward will also be retroactively granted to players for each Hero that reached level 9 prior to today’s patch.
    • Hero Level 15 -- Reward reduced from 1,250 to 1,000 Gold
    • Hero Level 20 -- Reward reduced from 2,500 to 2,000 Gold
      • Players will not lose any Gold that had already been earned by reaching Hero Levels 15 or 20 prior to today’s patch.

In-Game UI

  • Tab Score Screen
    • The Healing column on the in-game Stats Screen (TAB) has been reworked, and renamed to the Role column.
      • The Role column will track healing done by Support Heroes, as well the total amount of damage taken by Warriors during a game.
    • The Siege Damage column will no longer track damage dealt to uncaptured Mercenaries or other neutral units.

Quest Log

  • A Special Event Quests section has been added to the Quest Log.
    • When a Special Event is taking place, any available Special Event Quests will appear in this section of the Quest Log.
    • Special Event Quests will display any requirements needed to complete them in the Quest Log.
    • Much like a normal Daily Quest, players will be notified when they complete a Special Event Quest on the end-of-game Score Screen.
  • In order to better support Special Event Quests, the Quest Log has been enabled for all Heroes of the Storm players, whether or not they’ve unlocked Daily Quests by reaching Player Level 6.
    • Daily Quests will remain disabled for players that have not reached level 6, but they can still click the Quest Log to view an active Special Event Quest, or their player progress.


  • Players will no longer receive notifications via chat messages or announcer voiceover when an enemy disconnects from, or rejoins a game in any matchmaking mode.
    • However, players in Custom Games will still be notified when enemies disconnect or rejoin.
    • Players will still be notified when an ally leaves or rejoins a game, though notification frequency has been reduced in situations where a teammate repeatedly disconnects and rejoins a game.



  • The difficulty ratings for many Heroes have been updated to better reflect their ease of play.
  • The rings found under Heroes in-game have been scaled to more closely match their hitboxes.
  • Skillshots and Abilities that use an arc pattern will now display their range when hovering the cursor over the associated button on the Ability hotbar.
  • Several Abilities were unintentionally providing brief moments of Unstoppable behavior during use. The following Abilities no longer provide Unstoppable:
    • Chen -- Flying Kick (Q)
    • Falstad -- Barrel Roll (E)
    • Illidan -- Dive (Q)
    • Illidan -- Sweeping Strikes (with the Unbound talent) (W)
    • Kerrigan -- Ravage (Q)
  • A number of Hero Abilities were not intended to completely Stun enemy targets. In these cases, Stuns have been converted to Dazes, which act similarly, but will no longer interrupt Abilities that can be channeled while the Hero is moving.
    • For example: Dazing Valla will not stop her from channeling Strafe.
    • The following abilities will now Daze, rather than Stun, enemy Heroes:
      • Brightwing -- Emerald Wind (R)

Developer Eternal Conflict Patch Preview

Blizzard je objavio pregled izmena koje nam dolaze u sledećem Heroes of the Storm Patch-u.

Hero and Talent Reworks

We have a number of Talent reworks coming to Heroes of the Storm with our next patch. Malfurion, Brightwing, Rehgar, and the Lost Vikings will be receiving significant changes. These changes coincide with our trend of diversifying our characters and offering new talent builds. Do note that the Lost Vikings have a high win rate, so their incoming changes are intended to result in a lower win rate, alongside the goal of greater talent diversity.


We’ve heard a strong amount of feedback, specifically from the competitive scene, about the Promote talent. We like that Promote offers an early game lane advantage, but it can be a problem as players start spending an exceedingly long time killing a Promoted enemy Minion. We’re changing Promote to affect PvE only, meaning a promoted Minion will do increased damage to enemy Minions and structures, and take reduced damage from these same sources. However, their new combat abilities will have no impact on other Heroes, allowing for players to quickly clean up a Promoted Minion wave.

Daze Tech

We are changing the way many of the knockbacks in Heroes of the Storm currently work. Previously, the majority of abilities that moved an enemy character also applied a stun during the movement. This means abilities like Tychus’ grenade or Raynor’s Penetrating Round would double as a Stun for channeled abilities. With this new tech, many of these knockback abilities will no longer stun mobile channeling abilities including Tychus’ Overkill, Li Li’s Jug of 1000 cups, Sonya’s Whirlwind, and Valla’s Strafe. Knockback effects that we’d like to apply a stun, Muradin’s Haymaker for example, will keep the stun, but it will be explicitly part of the ability and called out in the tooltip. As an added note, stationary channels such as Mosh Pit and Ravenous Spirit will still be interrupted by a knockback effect.

Simply put, Possession is the least-picked Heroic ability in the game right now, and we’re excited to try out some changes to make the Heroic an enticing choice. There have been a number of great suggestions from the community on how to give this ability a makeover, and we’ve elected to run with a player-suggested alteration. Possession will now be a charge-based Heroic ability. Players will have 7 charges of Possession, allowing them to take control of an entire enemy Minion wave.

At level 20, you’ll have the option to receive charges more frequently, have a higher maximum charge count, and also be able to spend several charges on an enemy Mercenary. We’re excited to see what you guys think of these changes, and hope to see continued feedback after you’ve had a chance to try it out. We expect that Wailing Arrow will still be the primary Heroic as it is highly impactful in team fights, but anticipate that some split push builds will be able to utilize Possession effectively.  

Balance Changes

Before our latest patch, Anub’arak wasn’t seeing a lot of play and there were complaints surrounding his Beetle AI logic. While improving the Beetle AI, we also removed some small pre-cast delays making Anub’arak more responsive and fun to play. We expected the alterations to increase Anub’arak’s win rate but we were not expecting him to shoot to the top of our win charts. To bring Anub’arak’s balance back in line, we are tweaking his Beetles and reducing damage from Locust Swarm. The beetles will keep the improved AI functionality, but they will have reduced damage and move slower. We like how Anub’arak is playing now, so we are taking a conservative approach to these changes. We will continue to make further changes if more tuning is needed.

Illidan has been a popular balance topic for a while, but we’ve held off on making changes as Illidan’s win rate isn’t exceedingly high. Across all matches, Illidan is near the middle of the pack but starts to rise as we look at higher-skilled matches. In these particular matches we commonly see Illidan paired with a Rehgar or Abathur, helping to unlock his maximum potential. At these higher-skilled matches we also see a significant increase in Metamorphosis play.

To address these balance issues while also increasing Heroic Ability diversity, we’re looking to make some changes to Metamorphosis. Right now, it’s simply doing too many things too well. Metamorphosis damage is similar to The Hunt at level 20 and is often hitting multiple targets, so we’re reducing its damage significantly. Metamorphosis will keep a trivial amount of damage so it’ll continue to reveal cloaked heroes, dismount characters, etc. Along with the reduced damage, we’re also decreasing the impact area size, making it more difficult to hit an entire enemy team. With these changes, The Hunt becomes the better Heroic for isolating a single enemy hero, and Metamorphosis becomes primarily about repositioning and survival.

With the new Daze Tech described above, Li Li’s Jug of 1000 Cups will become more powerful as fewer abilities will be able interrupt the Heroic. We are also changing the way blinds, or blinding attacks, work. Currently, being blinded prevents your next X attacks, and a secondary Y duration before falling off is enforced in case you don’t auto-attack for a long period of time. With this patch, we are removing the X hits and going purely with the Y duration, although these blind abilities will be tuned to have much shorter durations than the current iteration. Overall, the changes will be a solid buff to blind abilities against rapid auto-attackers like Illidan or Valla, but a nerf against enemies with slower attacks. For this reason, characters with blinds should become a more significant auto-attack counter.

Latest Hero: Kael’thas

Balance wise, Kael’thas has a win rate near the middle of our Assassins and has an appropriate impact on the game. In the future we’d like to provide Kael’thas players with more diverse talent options instead of the single build most players are selecting now. There will be no Kael’thas changes in this patch, but adjustments to address talent diversity will probably hit in the near future.

And that about does it for this Patch Preview. Thanks to Matt Cooper and the design team for chatting with us about the content coming in the next update. Let us know what you’re most looking forward to in the comments below, and we’ll see you in the Nexus!
