The Arena of Valor October 27th Update sees new hero balance adjustments for Chaugnar and Kriknak arrives.
Hero Balance Adjustments
Chaugnar’s current skills encourage players to stack off the passive before engaging in battles. It turns the gameplay from fighting with enemies into a precise calculation of the mana consumption, which requires a more profound understanding of the mechanic. To this end, we’ve optimized the stacking attributes and rules.
There are some minor issues regarding Chaugnar’s basic attributes and mana structure. We’ve optimized them as well.
Base Armor: 183→171
Growth Armor: 28.3→29
Passive: Added a 6%-10% movement speed bonus, which increases with the hero’s level.
Skill 1 Cooldown: 9.5s→8s, Mana Cost: 75+5/lv->60+5/lv
Skill 2 Mana Cost: 30→40
Stacks upon using the skill, each stack increases movement speed by 2% and damage reduction by 2%, up to 5 stacks. → Stacks upon hitting an enemy, each stack increases damage reduction by 5%, up to 3 stacks.
After hitting an enemy, the maximum damage stacking limit has also been reduced from 5 to 3.
Kriknak is an Assassin that can take on tanky heroes at the late stage of the game. However, his skill 1, which is an essential skill of his, yields magic damage on percentage, rendering him unable to receive the physical damage bonus from Muramasa during the late stage of the game. We’ve now optimized the concerns mentioned above.
S1 Mark Damage: Magic damage that is equal to 7% of the enemy’s max HP (an extra 1 % added for every additional 50 points of physical attack) → Physical damage that is equal to 8% of the enemy’s max HP (an extra 1% added for every additional 50 points of physical attack)
