“Blackthorn Hammer has rarely been seen in Season 5. The Item has a strong passive effect but lacked a clear focus on role. We are shifting the stats on this item to make it a clear option for Warrior's who want to play more like true tanks. The passive effect works especially well on tanky characters as they can maximize the time spent above or below 50% hp.”
- Increase Health from 350 to 450.
- Decreased Physical Power from 30 to 25.
“Attack Speed builds have many items fighting to item slots. Silverbranch Bow was reworked recently to be an item that provides exceedingly high attack speed as its unique feature. However, compared to the way attack speed is available on other items and on god abilities, this extra attack speed was often wasted. Bonus Attack Speed will never be wasted again with the new Silverbranch Bow! Now players will be able to build this item to gain extra Physical Power when overcapping on attack speed. This item can work especially well with any gods who want high attack speed, or gods with attack speed self buffs.”
- Costs 2200g, Builds from Hunter's Bow.
- +20 Physical Power
- +25% Attack Speed
- +10 Physical Penetration
- PASSIVE – for each 0.02 attack speed you go over cap (2.5) you gain 1 physical power.
- Ex: if you would go to 2.6 attack speed, you instead go to 2.5 + 5 physical power.
“Anhur's ultimate has a hard time outpacing normal hunter basic attack damage. We want to mitigate this scenario that feels like a lose/lose and help him feel like he has a true ultimate ability. Desert Fury is getting a significant late game damage boost to make sure Anhur has the ability to finish off enemies.”
- Desert Fury
- Increase base damage from 60/85/110/135/160 to 70/95/120/145/170.
- Increased Physical Power Scaling from 20% to 30%.
“Baron Samedi is in a much healthier place after his damage adjustments which moved his performance more in line with the rest of the gods on the battleground. However, Life of the Party is still creating some scenarios where there is little counterplay available to his enemies. We are bringing the Hysteria generated by this ability down while further slowing Baron Samedi during his channel. Enemies should be pulled more slowly and have more opportunity to create distance to escape Baron's grasp.”
- Life of the Party
- Decreased Hysteria per hit from 8 to 5.
- Increased self slow while casting from 40% to 60%.
“Wild Hunt's Mana cost was quite large for a standard Hunters ultimate. We are bringing the cost to 100 for all ranks, allowing Cernunnos to gain flexibility with where he is spending his Mana.”
- The Wild Hunt
- Decreased Mana cost from 100/110/120/130/140 to 100 at all ranks.
“The Lord of Darkness has made himself known, bringing heavy global pressure for his enemies to deal with. He can rotate quickly to any fight and have a massive impact with his damage mitigation and damage. While he needs the high mitigation to really mix it up in the late game, we are bringing down the early game mitigation to give opponents more room to deal with him when he lands.”
- Crystallized Curses
- Decreased Base Damage of the Initial Hit from 70/100/130/160/190 to 70/95/120/145/170.
- Living Nightmare
- Decreased mitigation scaling from 20/25/30/35/40% to 10/17.5/25/32.5/40%.
“Fenrir heavily relied on gaining kills to reset his runes, allowing him to chain kills or bring extra control to escape from his opponents. Like other passives that relied on getting kills for a powerful effect, it felt lackluster when a teammate ended up getting the kill and leaving Fenrir players with no bonus runes. Fenrir will now gain 3 runes for getting an Assist, helping to mitigate that feeling.”
- Unbound Runes
- Fenrir now gains 3 runes for getting an Assist.
“Ne Zha's passive rework allowed him to gain quite a bit of Physical Power early game, allowing him to clear and gank with overwhelming pressure. We are reducing the amount of Physical Power this provides to slow down and reduce his early game pressure.”
- Righteous Spirit
- Decreased Base Power from 1 per stack to 0.5 per stack.
“Pele definitely brought the heat during our Public Test Server, resulting in a few nerfs before she hit our live servers. After more players have had their hand at throwing lava around she is not performing at the same level as PTS. We are bringing up her base survivability and giving her a reduced cooldown on Pyroclast, giving her more opportunities to poke or engage her enemies. Additionally, Magma Rush is seeing a partial revert. Pele will be moving much more quickly around the map, enhancing her ability to position well and be in the right places at the right time.”
- Increased Base health from 440 to 460.
- Decreased cooldown from 14 to 13.
- Magma Rush
- Increased Movement Speed from 20% to 30%.
“Thoth has an ability that can cause item effects to trigger at a very high rate. Glyph of Pain has the potential to let Thoth abuse items that work on ability damage, especially at high levels of play. We are preventing Thoth from triggering items in this way, as we have done with similar abilities in the past that can cause this issue.”
- Glyph of Pain
- This ability no longer triggers any item effects.
