8/29 (Tue) Balance Update Notes

[Legend Changes]


[Jack O’]

“We will be lifting the limitations we put on Jack O’ to keep his strength in check and patching up his weaker aspects.”



  • Damage increased from 650 to 800.
  • Ultimate’s projectile will now slightly curve towards Jack O’ when returning.


[Approved Fuel Efficiency] 

  • Ultimate cooldown reduction increased. 12/13/14/15/16 → 22/24/26/28/30%
  • Jack O’ will no longer be able to reuse his Ultimate immediately by landing a Basic Attack after getting his Ultimate gauge refunded when he has Approved Fuel Efficiency equipped. Now, his remaining Ultimate gauge after the refund will be the same as it was when he didn’t equip this Ability.


We did say Yong Yong would one day fly. Wait, this isn’t what you had in mind?”
