Grubby gives thoughts on February, 10 Balance Update for Heroes

0 comments

Blizzard just released their Heroes of the Storm  -- Balance Update Notes for February 10, 2016. 

I'll chip in with my first impressions. I have not tested or played with the new changes yet, but I feel pretty good about them in general. I don't agree on everything though. Let's take a look!

You can read the exact changes here:
https://us.battle.net/heroes/en/blog/20008204/heroes-of-the-storm-balance-update-notes-february-10-2016-2-10-2016

Whereas Blizzard writes in exact damage numbers for level 0, I'll reflect the relative changes in percentages (%), to add understanding of how everything changed.

Falstad
- Level 7: BOOMerang (Q), 24% damage increase
- Level 10: Hinterland Blast (R), ~16% damage increase

Grubby's comments: Falstad right now is one of the best Heroes/Assassins in the game. His standard build is: https://www.heroesnexus.com/talent-calculator/11-falstad?filter-ptr=1#UOiPOOTOSOHPLAA. 

With this patch, Falstad will receive a significant buff to talents that are normally not used, BOOMerang and Hinterland Blast, and no nerfs. This increase theoretical talent diversity and options, buffing him has a Hero, as options are always a powerful thing to have. At level 16, his Hinterland Blast will deal 135 (863->998) more damage or 169 (1079->1248) more damage with Overdrive. At level 7, BOOMerang will explode for 37 (159->196) more damage than previous patch. 

With a 120s CD, I would probably still take Mighty Gust (40s CD) over Hinterland's Blast every time. With a 10s CD on Hammerang/BOOMerang, I would probably still take Seasoned Marksman + Secret weapon over Gathering Storm/BOOMerang every time.

    Het is goed dat de vrieskist nu vervangen is met ééntje die niet gedeukt is, maar dit heeft wel lang geduurd. Klantenservice kan echt stukken beter. Ook heb ik de omruil uit coulance geaccepteerd; was er eigenlijk klaar mee en had gevraagd om refund en volledige retour. Thx tho.twitter.com/AlternateNL/st

    Uiteindelijk heeft @AlternateNL het juiste gedaan, en heeft de vrieskist kosteloos vervangen met een nieuwe (ook al bespeur ik hier ook één of twee krasjes op het handvat, maar geen deuken in elk geval). Deze kwam dan ook in betere verpakking dan de vorige. Heeft wel lang geduurd
