In addition, we have installed the 9.16.5 update on our game servers. This update contains balance tweaks for Arcane Wyrm/Dragonfly, Fay/Fairy Queen, and Brawler/Meijin.

Arcane Wyrm/Dragonfly

This hero has been changed because it was too difficult for him to finish off soldiers in the lane, which had a significant impact on his development over the course of the game.

The hero's base Energy has been increased from 850 to 1,000. The increase in Energy not only allows the hero to depend less on this statistic at the beginning of the game, but also significantly increases damage from the Energy Resonance upgrade early in the game, when the hero first learns this upgrade.

  • Arcane Web talent:
    • Now, in addition to having the talent cool down instantly, the hero will get 2/3 of the Energy spent on it back if he kills an enemy with it.
    • The hero regains access to the talent and gets 2/3 of the Energy spent on it back even if the enemy dies up to half a second after taking damage from the ability. This will make it easier to finish off faction soldiers in the lane and will make the talent function more like similar talents such as Vampire/Dahaka's Bloody Slash or Frog Whisperer/Swamp King's Get it!

Fay/Fairy Queen

This hero has been further reworked because she was becoming too powerful too quickly throughout the game after the last update.

  • Fairy Warriors and Fairy Guardians talents:
    • The range of these talents has been reduced by 15%. The talents' range is still greater than that of a regular attack, but now it will allow the enemy to prevent the use of the fairies from going unpunished.
  • Fusion talent:
    • After learning the Illumination upgrade, the effectiveness of all the hero's other class talents is increased by 25% while Fusion is active rather than 50% as before.

Brawler/Meijin

This hero has been reworked, reducing his control and self-healing abilities.

  • Fist of Fury talent:
    • The talent's cooldown has been increased from 7 sec. to 9. Now after using a combination of abilities, the hero has to wait a certain length of time before he can take control of a target again.
  • Unstoppable talent:
    • Pain Tolerance upgrade: the amount of additional Health restored to the hero when dealing damage with class talents has been reduced from 7% to 6%.
