The Indomitable Spirit Patch Notes

XING TIAN, THE RELENTLESS

Xing Tian

 
Hear the legends of the headless warrior from the East. Long ago, three Emperors warred for supremacy of a young nation. Barely clinging to dominance, the Flame Emperor deployed his greatest general, the warrior-poet Xing Tian. Xing Tian returned to his lord in defeat, but with his spirit unbroken.

He begged to ride out and meet the enemy again, but the Flame Emperor refused. Unwilling to give in despite the loss of his lord’s support, Xing Tian rallied the Flame Army for a final siege of the Yellow Emperor’s Sky Palace. Xing Tian met the Yellow Emperor in single combat. The two titans traded blows up the side of the mountain.

High upon the snow-capped peak, the Yellow Emperor’s blade struck true, beheading Xing Tian. At the base of the mountain, Xing Tian awoke. A new face burned from his chest. With the fire to battle renewed, the headless Xing Tian rose to fight again. For Xing Tian there is no defeat; there is no death. As long as there is a battle to be fought, he will never surrender. And he will never die.

    ITEMS


    Blink
    BLINK
    Fixed issue with camera momentarily getting stuck if blinking into a Janus Portal.
     
    Bluestone Pendant
    BLUESTONE PENDANT
    Bluestone Pendant was an item that offered Mana sustain instead of Health sustain. Unfortunately over the course of balancing it was either too potent or lackluster. This patch we are shifting the item away from a sustain focus. Instead, it will now augment ability damage users by providing a damage over time on enemies hit by abilities. The goal is to have a meaningful choice between waveclear and aggression, or sustain and defences for Physical users.

    This item has been reworked.
    +20 Physical Power
    +100 Mana
    Passive: Enemies hit by your damaging abilities take an additional 30 Physical damage over 2s (max 2 stacks).
     
    Enchanter Buckler
    ENCHANTER BUCKLER
    Cost reduced from 750 to 700.
     
    Mail of Renewal
    MAIL OF RENEWAL
    Mail of Renewal is an interesting item that exists to help players persist during and after a fight. We have increased its overall effectiveness while making sure we kept the high end potential of this item from going out of control by making it refresh instead of stack in place. This should make the item more attractive overall.

    • Increased Cooldown Reduction from 10% to 15%.
    • Increased healing from Passive from 10% to 20%.
    • Passive now also activates on Objective Kills (Fire Giant, Gold Fury, Juggernaut, etc.).
    • No longer stacks. Upon a successful trigger it will refresh the current duration.

     
    Weakening-Curse
    WEAKENING CURSE
    100% healing reduction is a potent stat to have on an active. It’s existance has limited the usefulness of gods with healing abilities, as well as trivializing items like Divine Ruin, Brawler’s Beatstick and gods with anti-healing abilities. By removing some of the healing reduction from this item, gods with healing abilities should have a little more breathing room but can still be shut down through itemization and counter picks.

    Reduced healing reduction from 100% to 65%.
     
    Hide of the Urchin
    HIDE OF URCHIN
    Decreased cost from 2500g to 2400g.
     

    GAMEPLAY


    Fixed Banished players getting stuck on top of Medusa statues if created underneath them.
     
     

    BALANCE CHANGES


     
     
    Ao Kuang
    AO KUANG
    Ao Kuang was seeing very positive performances at the highest levels of play, but struggled in the hands of less experienced players. One of the biggest strengths at higher level play was the low Cooldown nature of Wild Storm. We have shifted some of the power away from this skill in favor of increasing the strength of Dragon Call. The goal is to balance out Ao Kuang over the multiple skill ranges he was being played at.

    Dragon Call: Increased base damage from 30/45/60/75/90 to 35/50/65/80/95 per Dragon.

    Wild Storm:

    • Reduced Magical Power Scaling from 50% to 40%.
    • Increased Cooldown from 5s to 7s.

     
    Cabrakan
    CABRAKAN

    • Fixed missing shields at Victory screen.
    • Fixed a Basic Attack animation issue after attacking with Seismic Crush.

     
    Chang'e
    CHANG’E

    Fixed mute not applying when using skins that have the Rabbit speak.
     
    Fenrir
    FENRIR
    Brutalize: Fixed ability not working on targets being pulled by Khepri.
     
    Guan Yu
    GUAN YU
    Guan Yu is a Warrior who excels around being in a fight, shredding Protections, healing his team and dashing through targets. We wanted to reward him more for doing these things. His Passive will now also build stacks on dealing damage to enemy gods and the Cooldown on his dash was reduced. He should now be able to assist his team with more powerful heals and use his lower Cooldown to be in better positions.

    Painless: Guan Yu now builds stacks upon dealing damage to an enemy god, as well as receiving damage.
    Warrior’s Will:

    • Increased Slow from 20% to 30%.
    • Reduced Cooldown from 14s to 12s.

     
    Hercules
    HERCULES
    Earthbreaker: Fixed inaccuracies with ground targeter causing targets to not get knocked up.
     
    Hou Yi
    HOU YI
    Ricochet: Improved highlighting accuracy.
     
    Janus
    JANUS
    Unstable Vortex: Improved highlighting accuracy.
     
    Khepri
    KHEPRI
    Khepri was brought much more into line with the recent changes, but we still saw him over-performing. By increasing the Mana cost of Rising Dawn and the Cooldown on Solar Flare, choosing to save teammates will become a more impactful choice.

    Rising Dawn: Increased Mana cost from 40 to 50/55/60/65/70.

    Solar Flare: Increased Cooldown from 15s to 18s.
     
    Kumbhakarna
    KUMBHAKARNA
    Poor Kumbhakarna was underperforming across the board so we looked at some key aspects of hit kit. We brought up the damage and root duration of Groggy Strike as it was a very long channel for not much payoff. In a previous patch we split the damage from Epic Uppercut so that he could deal some more upfront damage but it reduced the Area of Effect damage of the landing. We like the split, but want to bring back some of the reward for hitting players with the landing of the Ultimate.

    Groggy Strike:

    • Increased base damage 50/90/130/170/210 to 70/120/170/220/270.
    • Increased Root duration from 1.5s to 2s.

    Epic Uppercut: Increased landing damage from 225/300/375/450/525 to 250/350/450/550/650.
     
    Medusa
    MEDUSA

    Acid Spray: Updated the spray fx to be more accurate.
     
    Mercury
    MERCURY

    Fastest God Alive: Increased additional power from 25% to 30% of his movement speed from items.
     
    Nox
    NOX

    Nox cannot be pulled from Khepri after she’s used Shadow Lock on a target.
     
    Ravana
    RAVANA

    10-Hand Shadow Fist: Increased Health Return from 15/20/30/45/65 to 15/30/45/60/75.
     
    Ymir (New)
    YMIR
    Ice Wall: Fixed ranks 2 and 3 being 1s shorter than stated.
