  • Added a “Return To Lobby” button for the Spectator Client when watching Live god selection.
  • Updated the Icon for Fire Giant’s slow from Magma Blast.

 

ITEM CHANGES

Mystical-Mail
MYSTICAL MAIL
Mystical Mail was underwhelming for it’s cost, especially when compared to items with more direct health or protections on either end of the spectrum. By reducing the cost and providing a small bump to it’s Physical Protection we expect it fall into a better spot.

Reduced cost from 2850g → 2700g.
Increased Physical protection from 30 → 40.
 
Soul Eater
SOUL EATER
Soul Eater is an item that allows for players to gain a large amount of stats, and then expend them in an emergency situation to stay alive. At a 50% health threshold to activate, and at 1% per stack; the payoff for losing your stacks often was not impactful enough and happened too early in a fight. These changes should address these issues.

Reduced health threshold for passive to activate from 50% → 25%.
Increased health returned from passive per stack from 1% → 1.5%.
 
Golden Sash
GOLDEN SASH
Warlock’s Sash is an item that is often used on mages who wish to be tankier, or who need to be tankier in places like the Solo lane, but needed to be rushed to be effective. By reducing the cost of Golden Sash players can build this item early more comfortably, allowing for some more diversity in items in the early game Magic users.

Cost reduced from 1450g → 1350g.
Health reduced from 200 → 175.
Mana reduced from 200 → 175.
 
Spectral Armor
SPECTRAL ARMOR
Fixed an issue where this item’s Passive could be activated without using a Relic.
 

BALANCE CHANGES

Agni
AGNI
Flame Wave will now burn players a little bit harder, allowing Agni a bit of extra firepower in the mid and late game.

Flame Wave: Increased scaling from 50% → 65%.
 
Cabrakan
CABRAKAN
Cabrakan is seeing a few changes that are part QoL and part increased effectiveness. Shadow Zone will now affect himself, providing him a boost in survivability. Seismic Crush and Refraction Shield are also seeing their base damage scalings made consistent per level. Overall Cabrakan should see more consistent output with a small adjustment upwards in damage.

Shadow Zone: Now affects Cabrakan Himself.

Seismic Crush: Changed Damage from 100/125/175/225/275 (50%) → 100/145/190/235/280 (50%).

Refraction Shield: Changed Damage from 90/160/200/260/330 (50%) → 100/160/220/280/340 (50%).
 
Cupid
CUPID
Cupid’s ultimate should now avoid being interrupted after the cast has occurred. This will help Cupid make sure Fields of Love happens exactly when he means for it to happen, while still keeping him casting for the same duration he currently does.

Fields of Love:

  • Reduced casting time from .3 → 0.
  • Increased recovery time from .1 → .4.

 
Fenrir
FENRIR
Fenrir now has more mana to leap, claw, and bite his enemies with; giving him some extra uses of his abilities in the early game.

  • Base Mana increased from 200 → 230.
  • Base MP5 increased from 3.7 → 4.2.

 
Kali
KALI
Marked for Death:

  • Updated tooltip for clarity.
  • Fixed Kali is receiving Bloodforge passive on assists if the target is her passive mark.
  • Fixed an issue where Kali was getting the wrong XP and Gold values on assists of her marked targets.

 
Medusa
MEDUSA
The Achievement “Look at me!” will now be awarded if you “stun three or more Gods with Petrify” OR you “kill three or more Gods with Petrify”.
 
Poseidon I
POSEIDON
Poseidon is a character that often wants to maintain high levels of his Tide to be mobile and effective around the map. By reducing both the Tidal Meter and Mana cost of Tidal Surge and Whirlpool, Poseidon players will find themselves often in a slightly better position at key points in the game.

Tidal Surge:

  • Reduce Mana cost from 70/80/90/100/110 → 60/70/80/90/100.
  • Reduced Tidal Meter Cost from 35% → 30%.

Whirlpool:

  • Reduce Mana cost from 70/80/90/100/110 → 60/70/80/90/100.
  • Reduced Tidal Meter Cost from 25% → 20%.

 
Skadi
SKADI

  • Corrected an issue where Kaldr’s health bar would scale properly with distance.
  • Fixed an issue with Kaldr’s health bar in Spectator.

 
Susano
SUSANO

Fixed an issue where Susano could get inside of Towers or Phoenixes.
