7/4(Tue) Balance Update Notes

[Legend Changes]





Wukong slightly lacking Ground Attack has been greatly buffed.

Basic Attack

[Master of the Staff] 

  • The first hit’s start-up time for Wukong’s Ground Attack’s decreased by approximately 0.03 s.
  • Ground Attack’s total damage increased by 100. 600 → 700



The most notable change in this balance note has to be Ravi’s Ultimate range reduction. As one of the first Legends to be created alongside Peter, they both possessed potent Ultimates that could retake the Dominion Point or end the game. However, this proved to be difficult to balance. Peter got regular nerfs with his Ultimate cooldown increasing at first. But it ruined the game feel of playing him, and eventually he found his place after his radius was reduced and he was reverted back to his original cooldown. Ravi’s Ultimate is also an extremely valuable part of his skill set, so we decided to reduce its range while preserving its power and ability to take control of spaces.


[Grim Dawn] 

  • Radius decreased by 12%.



[Strong Heart] 

  • Gauge charge required for Ultimate decreased
    • Before: 12/14/16/18/20%
    • New: 8/9/10/11/12%

Changes have been made so Ducky actively participate in fights in Ducky form.
