    Not really. It apparently had hitting the leaves at range in mind. The way they describe it is that, hitting someone really close to you is not even an option but im assume it could still stun on the way back.. Awkward tho

    Sounds like more a nerf than a buff to an already underpowered hero

    Seems like they just gave sav a pat on the back, but maybe this will make him good again we'll see.

    Finally Lu Noobfei's are going to have to manage their mana.

    I don't know why they buffed the speed on Guervus's lava tornado(that's what I call it don't judge me) since now unless you stun lock him/ cripple his movement speed before he blinks he's basically unkillable. Not to mention he's going to be one of the hardest characters to escape from in the game now.

    Praise the Dev's, they actually nerfed elf enough where nubs will have to think before ulting and fixed broken paladin shield.

    A lot of these changes are actual tiny tweaks in durations/ damage and effect which depending on the character are either going to impact their play a lot or not at all.

    I to was hoping for a rockfist change along with migrove but hey, maybe next patch? In the mean time I'll have to see if these new heroes are op or not before I determine whether or not GL screwed up again. But so far things are looking up. :angelic:

    I think they made it so the target is automatically stunned dispite the complete on hit effect with the leafs.

    Btw for the phase buff, does this mean only his auto attacks will be buffed? or his overall skill output damage plus his autos?

    Aww man when I use Gueverus I will be unkillable. With my build he can blink every 10 seconds, now he can also run away fast and catch up to running enemies. Inb4 nerf

    Won't be much of a buff then, unless you like to auto attack your enemies to death with mystic. but with fernades blade or whatever you can infinitely slow enemies and it will do more damage now. Let the troll wars begin lol

    Other than the reworks, the rest of the hero balances seem rather underwhelming at first glance

    ELF got No actual nerf to her early game. No real nerf at all, just have to start ult a little later rather than ulting 10 seconds before engaging.

    actually phase needs a rework on his passive not a buff. Other than that i agree with most of the changes they are in the right direction. Besides, this is jst the beginning as the devs said. Gj gameloft :)

    The first skill that has the possibility to deal damage will scale with Mystic's passive before it resets,

    Has anyone else who read the update post in the nerfs and buffs section realize that apart from the Laurelai buff, the contents in both threads, that and this one, are exactly the same? Don't know what Leve was trying to prove when he said this stuff was inaccurate.

    Well we change the cd of skills and call it a buff/nerf. It doesn't really impact the game that much. 22 heroes? Well we can change the mana costs of all heroes, but it wouldn't change much.

    I expected more love for low tier heroes, not mana and cd changes for middle tier heroes.

    Well the buff is early game mostly. Mystic can now hit harder than a fighter by autoing for harass . But his passive is still kinda stupid. It should be an active because the effects going away after a skill just doesnt make sense for a mage

    I like how they doubled the movement speed on Guervus second skill and called it a "tiny change". Good luck catching me now! :D
