We've made a handful of changes to six Heroes!


Life Reaper Brom:
  • Dread Scythe (New ability, replaces Sickly Slice): Attack that has a chance to Disease and Fear enemies
  • Soul Eater (Passive): Each death blow that Brom lands will heal him a bit
  • Heart Stopper (Passive): Attacks will crit if enemy is at 25% health or less

Bovus El Doro:
  • Stampede now lowers the enemy's speed instead of reducing their energy
  • Stampede now uses 75% of Bovus' ATK stat instead of 65%
  • Grisly Rampage (Replaces Rampage): Bovus gets an extra attack per enemy death

Augustus:
  • Stat Boost: Increased HP
  • Demon Vendetta (Passive): Revenges any crit on the team from a Demon

Pignius Maximus:
  • Team Precision (Passive): Ally crit damage is increased
  • Burning Touch (Passive): Pignius' basic attacks have a chance to burn the enemy

Masuta Kira:
  • Stat Boost: Increased ATK, HP, and DEF.
  • Death Blossom now has an additional 15% chance to crit
  • Tenacity (Passive): 25% chance to get 2nd attack at the end of every round

Sir William:
  • Stat Boost: Increased attack, and now immune to Fear
  • Protecting Charge (New ability, replaces Bulwark): Buffs the team's defense and attacks a target
  • Bring It On will now Revenge on any attack

  • At first when I read about Bovus my reaction was "nerf alert..." But I'm afraid in many ways he will be much more of a pain! Luckily I almost have him 6* and have more incentive to use him and pair him with Rocky and fasties... Kinda like earlier last fall, except I finally have these characters at a much better development.
  • no doubt bovus is a nerf. no change to slow enemies, and normal enemies still get a special, just after your team attacks.

  • Bovus's nerf is also an echo nerf. Now he prevents energy drain from bromm and zurk only now.

    Bovus + A bunch of AOE heroes will be the new trend

    ... just after your team attacks.

    Letting your entire team attack first is a very big deal. This changes PvP. Ekko was an option to counter Bovus previously, now silence is the only option (well... death, freezing, daze are among other options). Bovus' change nerfs Ekko MUCH more than Bovus. This change may also boost Zen's attractiveness as a counter. One thing seems pretty clear to me, the devs are ratcheting up the influence and mechanics of speed controls among heros.

    Don't forget about Ignus' Energy Drain spell.

  • They keep making it harder and harder to beat cash teams with freemium characters. **** pathetic what this game has become. Hope you all lose your **** jobs when the revenues dry up. **** off and goodbye.

    bring kai along then, or astrid ;)
    So long and thanks for all the fish
    So sad that it should come to this
    We tried to warn you all but oh dear
    You may not share our intellect
    Which might explain your disrespect
    For all the natural wonders that
    grow around you
    So long, so long and thanks
    for all the fish
    (more lyrics, but no room :()
  • @bjthrutch Yep, people that don't want to or can't spend money on this game is really difficult nowadays, taking away a good hero for pvp!? Pathetic shows how much they want money.

  • For sir William, im noticing that his pumped up buff wears off one round earlier than his taunt. Is this intended? Can anyone else confirm if this is happening to you?

    Yes I noticed as well. I was assuming it was intended, but we'll see.

    i honestly think that the atk buff that was given to william is close to be irrelevant. he is still way below kai's 2nd special (which pumps defense while adding revenge). also, the taunt thing on william limits the dmg output of the team if compared to kai's.

    i think that the concept of the improvement given to him is awesome, but he might use a further buff in its atk stat
    TrueMelkio?gid=ascension
  • DingusDingus Member
    Yeah William should just be permanently pumped or something. Then the Taunt should give a double revenge or else it's just a normal taunt as his signature move (like before lol). Give him back his Bulwark so he can help the team better and then his third ability should be changed from Smack Down to Beast Slayer or something that works like Smite or Crush the Nerds. Then people might start paying some attention to him!

  • I really like Augustus, Masuta, And Brom's nerfs! Mostly Brom's, since it makes him more of a menacing grim-reaper soul-eating figure. I don't he's op or anything, just slightly more awesome. Other changes are meh, but still ok.

    I'm just now noticing this, but when Bovus's stampede was changed from draining energy to slowing the enemy the damage also increased from 65% of his attack value to 75% of his attack value. Was this intentional? I didn't see mentioned above, so thought I'd ask.

    Thanks

    That was indeed intentional! I've added that bit to the original post for clarification :)

    Great, thanks for clarifying. Not a big deal, but I figured I'd ask. :)

    @Joel.
    i guess it's also a year since these buffs to MK.. -_-

    Masuta Kira:
    Stat Boost: Increased ATK, HP, and DEF.
    Death Blossom now has an additional 15% chance to crit
    Tenacity (Passive): 25% chance to get 2nd attack at the end of every round

    Coincidentally, it's also been nearly a year that they've been promising to nerf MK as well.

    Wait, who made this sticky again? Sticky means it won't disappear and be buried under old posts, yet this is the first time I'm seeing it again in a year. Someone must've made it sticky again??

    It's been sticky for weeks or months.
    I've been seeing it as third post from top for a long time, no new postings and still sitting there.
    I don't think it was ever unstickified.
  • JackHallow666JackHallow666 Member, Dungeon Boss Guru, Volunteer Moderator
    There, I un-stickied it. I doubt they actually need this post up there, but if they want it, I guess they could just yell at me and re-sticky it.

    it's an interesting, and in hindsight, hilarious capture of moment in time when they thought it was a great idea to boost MK's attack, HP, and Def, and then give him epics to boost those Def and HP's elevated stats even higher.

  • And this was also the time we all said "OMG Bovus and Tsume are too OP, plz nerf!!1!" And now even if they got put back to their prior skills and stats they'd still be irrelevant.

    i think it would actually be kinda interesting to see bovus' stampede returned to its original form. Back when bovus was OP, it was mostly in conjunction with Torchy being able to silence the opposition's normal speed opener, thereby allowing bovus to render the rest of the "powerless".

    however, with all the new heroes, and more specifically, all the new FAST heroes, a lot of times, the fight is already over by the time it gets to normal speed heroes.

    add on the fact that everyone's loaded down with epics now, which, a defender wouldn't be using unless they had no access to a special ability, so bovus would actually potentially trigger the use of opponents epics.

    Changing Bovus' Stampede back might also make people start using Ekko again. Perhaps a change back to Bovus' regular Stampede at the same time as an Ekko update to make him more useful would work. But I don't think they'll change Bovus back anytime soon, if ever.

    That said, Grog sorta took over Bovus' spot, so maybe changing his Stampede back would give him a new niche to work in, which could help him out?

    The funniest part is that Natedoge was unhappy at the changes then and apparently leaving. A year later he's still playing and moaning at every new development in the game.
