Free Hero Rotation Update
This week’s free hero rotation has been updated!
On Thursday, July 28, 2022 (GMT+8), a new rotation of heroes will be available in 5v5 battles: Ghost Rider, Iron Fist, Jubilee, Lady Sif, Luna Snow, Pixie, Rocket Raccoon, Spider-Man, Storm, and Yondu. Go forth into battle, Watchers!
New Watchers (characters below Lv. 10) can use heroes (beginner and easy difficulty) from the weekly free roster, and also from the free roster for new players.
We have made it easier for Pixie’s Ability 3 to generate shields for friendly heroes so that she can provide better support to her teammates while creating obstacles for her opponents.
Increased the range of Pixie’s Ability 3 when she generates shields for friendly heroes.
We have increased the base damage of Gambit’s passive ability to give him an edge during the laning phase.
Bonus basic attack damage from casting the ability has been increased from (+20% physical attack) to 15 (+20% physical attack).
We have reduced the backswing of Black Panther’s Ability 2 Bast’s Shadow to allow for a smoother combo execution.
We have enhanced Executioner’s late-game DPS and control capabilities to relieve his weakness of being easily harassed by enemies and mediocre combat prowess that should have been his main strength.
Cooldown has been reduced from 5 seconds at all levels to 5/5/5/4.5/4.5/4.5/4 seconds.
Attack speed bonus from hitting an enemy hero has been adjusted from 50% to 40% (+2%*current level).
Stun duration has been increased from 0.8 seconds at all levels to 0.8/0.85/0.9/0.95/1/1.05/1.1 seconds.
Hela has incredible regen abilities and her main damage is unavoidable, providing her with exceptional combat capabilities and economic advantage. When facing off against a team of bulky characters without burst capabilities, she can easily take on multiple enemies on her own. However, when up against agile enemies, her lack of control capabilities became her weakness, resulting in a huge disparity between her worst and best performances. Therefore, we have slightly reduced her early-game damage and increased the stun duration of Ability 3.
Nightsword’s base death energy has been reduced from 120/150/180/210/240 to 90/115/140/165/190.
Stun duration has been increased from 1 second to 1.5 seconds.
Mighty Thor’s Thunder will now apply Mark of Thunder when hitting an enemy. Enemies with 3 Mark of Thunder will receive additional damage and a Slow effect. These changes will allow Mighty Thor to improve her pursuit capabilities and the overall combat experience.
New: Mighty Thor’s Thunder will now apply a Mark of Thunder when hitting an enemy. Enemies with 3 Mark of Thunder will receive 50 (+70% of energy attack) (+25*current level) energy damage and a 50% Slow for 1 second. The Slow effect can only be applied once every 5 seconds.
Thunder damage has been reduced from 70 (+30% of energy attack) to 40 (+15% of energy attack).
Captain America’s Shield
Captain America’s Shield’s passive ability takes too long to take effect and provides minimal benefits in general, making Captain America’s Shield less than adequate as defensive gear against crit damage builds. Therefore, we have adjusted its passive ability to give its wielder a clear advantage in the mid-game and a distinct experience that differs from fighter heroes.
Removed the original passive ability.
Passive – Captain America’s Shield New: When receiving basic attacks, the Attack Speed of the enemy dealing the basic attack is reduced by 15% for 1.5 seconds, and the basic attacks’ crit damage is reduced by 20%.
After evaluating the damage output of marksman heroes’ mid-game gear, we’ve made some balancing adjustments for strategic diversities.
Sky Shadows’ passive ability has proven to be too overpowered in the early and mid-game for heroes who can build stacks quickly. Therefore, we have slightly reduced its stack limit to level the playing field.
Passive – Sky Shadows: Stack limit has been reduced from 10 to 6.
Silent Hunter’s stats and benefits from its passive ability are too low compared to similar gear. We hope this adjustment will make it the go-to burst damage gear for marksman heroes in the early and mid-game.
Price has been raised from 1,865 Coins to 1,925 Coins.
Physical Attack has been increased from 20 to 40.
Crit Rate has been increased from 15% to 25%.
Passive – Silent Hunter: Passive’s cooldown has been reduced from 6 seconds to 5 seconds
To prevent the new Captain America’s Shield from being too dominant in late-game teamfights, we have also enhanced the damage output of Twilight Blade and Gungnir (late-game gear for marksman heroes).
Crit Rate has been increased from 20% to 25%.
We have enhanced Gungnir’s passive ability and improved its cost-performance ratio to provide a more significant increase in damage output for its wielders.
Price has been raised from 1,950 Coins to 2,050 Coins.
Attack has been increased from 110 to 130.
Bonus Physical Penetration has been increased from 15% to 25%.
