My Heroes of the Storm Wishlist: Deathwing and Blackthorne

Heroes of the Storm has been a wild ride for me since Blizzard Entertainment invited me to the Technical Alpha. I played through the Beta, and then have steadily played the game since its official launch (June 2, 2015).

I haven’t played as much as I wish, because aside from playing video games, I am bound to updating the Blizzplanet websites nigh on a daily basis. I currently own all 70 Heroes; and 48 of them are Above level 10. The other ones are between level 5-9, except Cho and Garrosh. Currently at Player Level 673. I usually have played them in the PTR, too. So that’s a lot of gameplay and a lot of time invested in Heroes of the Storm.

I have barely needed to purchase new heroes with real money. I have purchased probably 3 heroes that way, and I have purchased all the remaining heroes with gold: which is obtained by completing quests, playing games, or by leveling heroes up to level 5, 10, or 15 (which provide large amounts of gold).

 

Starting a Career in the eSports Industry

Have you ever wondered about the massive army of people who work behind the scenes of the eSports industry?

The eSports industry is becoming a quickly growing source of some top-quality jobs. Perhaps your dream has always been to become a pro gamer and join one of the top teams – and who hasn’t had the fantasy of becoming the next Li Peng at one time or another?

However, if you know in reality that you’re never going to reach that level there are still ways of becoming part of the competitive video gaming world with a job in a supporting or developmental role.

It’s big business for a reason. There’s a massive army of fans hungry for live streaming of the gaming competitions that people play online. Large companies like ESPN and Redbull have been savvy enough to start sponsoring teams worldwide, as they have realised the growth potential of eSports.

Heroes of the Storm 27.5 Patch Notes

Blizzard Entertainment deployed a new Balance patch today that buffs up Cassia, Butcher, and Chromie, Kel’Thuzad got a bit of a nerf in terms of ability damage reduction and mana cost increase. Some cooldowns were increased across several heroes. In some cases, specific talents were removed entirely. Check out the patch notes.

27.5 Patch Notes

Cassia

Divider_Hero_Cassia.png

Stats

  • Basic Attack damage increased from 125 to 130

Abilities

  • Blinding Light (W)
    • Passive damage bonus to blinded targets increased from 15 to 20%

Talents

  • Level 1
    • Thunderstroke (Q)
      • First quest reward damage bonus increased from 75 to 100
    • True Sight (W)
      • Removed
    • Seraph’s Hymn (W)
      • Moved from Level 13
      • Cooldown reduction per basic attack against Blinded Heroes reduced from 3 to 2 seconds

Return to Top

Chromie

Divider_Hero_Chromie_Crop.png

Abilities

  • Sand Blast (Q)
    • Reduced the number of Sand Blast hits required to unlock the Sand Blast echo from 80 to 60

Talents

  • Level 2
    • Timely Surprise (E)
      • Now also increases the cast range of Time Trap by 33%

Developer Comment: Only about 40% of Chromie players were unlocking the echo over the course of a game, and among players that did it was occurring later than we’d like. By reducing the requirements for completing Chromie’s quest, we won’t increase her late game power at all, but make her output a little more consistent.

Return to Top

Kel'Thuzad

Divider_Hero_Chromie_Crop.png

Abilities

  • Frost Nova (W)
    • Mana cost increased from 45 to 50
  • Chains of Kel’Thuzad (E)
    • Mana cost increased from 45 to 50
  • Frost Blast (R)
    • Cooldown reduced from 100 to 80 seconds
  • Shadow Fissure (R)
    • Damage reduced from 440 to 400
    • Cooldown increased from 15 to 20 seconds
    • Mana cost increased from 50 to 60

Talents

  • Level 4
    • Phylactery of Kel’Thuzad (Active)
      • Quest requirement increased from 10 to 12 Regen Globes
  • Level 7
    • Accelerated Decay (Q)
      • Bonus damage increased from 20 to 25%
    • Glacial Spike (Active)
      • Damage reduced from 220 to 60
      • Delay before the spike spawns increased from .5 to 1 seconds
  • Level 13
    • Chains of Ice (E)
      • Slow duration reduced from 1.25 to 1 second
      • Slow amount decreased from 70 to 60%
  • Level 16
    • Hungering Cold (W)
      • Bonus damage reduced from 60 to 55

Developer Comment: As expected, there is a fairly large discrepancy between Kel’Thuzad’s performance across the entire game vs. players who are getting experienced with him at a higher level. His win-rate has climbed more than most of our other releases as players get used to his kit, so most of our changes are aimed at talent balance and toning his power down. While we like the sharpness of his power spike due to Master of the Cold Dark, we’ll continue to keep an eye on his burst potential and his overall strength going forward.

Return to Top

The Butcher

Divider_Hero_Butcher_crop.png

Stats

  • Basic Attack damage increased from 125 to 130
  • Health scaling per level increased from 4 to 4.5%
  • Health Regeneration scaling per level increased from 4 to 4.5%

Developer Comment: While we’ll be continuing to keep an eye on it, we believe that the Butcher’s quest tuning is appropriate. He has seen a significant drop in win rate in Hero League since our last round of changes, so we felt it was appropriate to increase his late-game Health so that he can keep up with other heroes, who often get many tools to survive his initial damage in teamfights.

Return to Top

Thrall

Stats

  • Base Maximum Health increased from 1787 to 1876
  • Base Health Regeneration increased from 3.7 to 3.9

Developer Comment: FOR THE HORDE!

Return to Top

Brightwing

Divider_Hero_Brightwing_Crop.png

Abilities

  • Soothing Mist (Trait)
    • Healing aura range increased from 6 to 7
  • Blink Heal (R)
    • Cooldown reduced from 10 to 9 seconds

Talents

  • Level 1
    • Dream Shot (Q)
      • New functionality:
        • Increases the range of Arcane Flare by 50%
        • Hitting an enemy Hero in the center portion of Arcane Flare reduces the cooldown of Arcane Flare to 1 second
    • Hyper Shift (Z)
      • Cooldown reduction per Hero healed increased from 2 to 3 seconds
    • Unfurling Spray (Trait)
      • Removed
  • Level 4
    • Arcane Barrage (Q)
      • Removed
    • Peekaboo (Z)
      • Revealed area radius reduced from 20 to 15
      • Added functionality:
        • Pixie Dust is now applied to the target of Phase Shift
  • Level 7
    • Phase Shield (Z)
      • Added functionality:
        • Now applies Shield to Brightwing and her target

Developer Comment: While Brightwing has been seeing a bit more play recently, her talent tree had some low-hanging fruit that we wanted to trim. Granting her a slightly larger range of Soothing Mist baseline will free up a more impactful choice at level 1. The addition of Arcane Barrage’s functionality into Dream Shot should also make that talent a bit more exciting to pick up. Overall, we were looking at giving the Faerie Dragon a few minor buffs and adjusting some talents in order to increase parity amongst her talent tiers.

Lt. Morales

Divider_Hero_LtMorales_cropped.png

Stats

  • Base Maximum Health increased from 1528 to 1605
  • Base Life Regen increased from 3.18 to 3.34

Abilities

  • Healing Beam (Q)
    • Energy Regeneration cooldown reduced from 3 to 2 seconds
    • You can no longer redirect Healing Beam to a target that is already being healed by your Healing Beam

Talents

  • Level 1
    • Caduceus Feedback (Passive)
      • Now increases Basic Attack Range by 1.1 and only generates Energy from Basic Attacks against Heroic targets.

Return to Top

Stukov

Divider_Hero_Stukov.png

Talents

  • Level 1
    • Spine Launcher (Passive)
      • Basic Attack damage reduction decreased from 50 to 30%

Return to Top

Tyrande

Talents

  • Level 7
    • Huntress’ Fury (D)
      • Added functionality:
        • Now also increases the range of Hunter’s Mark by 50%
  • Level 13
    • Empower (W)
      • Base cooldown reduction decreased from 4 to 2 seconds

Return to Top

Chen

Talents

  • Level 1
    • Grounding Brew (D)
      • Removed
  • Level 7
    • Purifying Brew (D)
      • Cooldown reduced from 45 to 15 seconds
      • Added functionality:
        • Chen now gains 30 Spell Armor while channeling Fortifying Brew

Developer Comment: We realize how difficult it is for most Chen players to pass up Brewmaster’s Balance on Tier 3. We moved a powerful level 20 down to compete with it a couple patches ago but the data is still showing it as an underperformer. Lowering the cooldown drastically and granting it the functionality of Grounding Brew should incentivize players into choosing it when playing against certain team compositions.

Return to Top

Dehaka

Divider_Hero_Dehaka_crop.png

Stats

  • Basic Attack damage reduced from 105 to 100

Abilities

  • Dark Swarm (W)
    • Damage per tick reduced from 50 to 47

Return to Top

Garrosh

Abilities

  • Groundbreaker (Q)
    • Mana cost increased from 30 to 35
  • Wrecking Ball (E)
    • Mana cost increased from 60 to 70
  • Decimate (R)
    • Mana cost decreased from 30 to 25

Talents

  • Level 1
    • Body Check (Active)
      • Cooldown decreased from 20 to 16 seconds
  • Level 7
    • Into the Fray (Active)
      • Cooldown increased from 30 to 40 seconds

Developer Comment: These changes are a response to community feedback about Garrosh’s Mana costs. We initially kept them relatively low, as he is a fairly low impact Warrior when his combo is not available to him, however we agreed with the feedback and felt that he could use more Mana management.

Return to Top

Leoric

Abilities

  • Entomb (R)
    • Cooldown reduced from 75 to 60 seconds

Return to Top

General

  • Fixed a number of tooltip issues across the game.

  • Uther: Fixed an issue causing Uther to gain extra damage and healing on consecutive casts of Wave of Light.
  • Uther: Uther's Hammer of Justice will no longer apply a 30% slow after the Stun effect fades.

Sound

  • Valla: Fixed an issue causing the Creed of the Hunter talent to not play quest sound effects when progress was earned. 

User Interface

  • Lt. Morales: The Cellular Reactor talent will now display an incoming heal indicator on the nameplate healthbar.
