    Ah Puch

    When Mid Season hit Ah Puch rose from the dead, becoming a strong pick in Conquest while continuing his strong performance in other modes. The keys to his success were his new early game strength and the fact that Empty the Crypts had more staying power. With this patch we are looking to tone down aspects of his kit to increase counterplay options without changing what makes him a valuable pick: zone control and burst DPS.

    Undead Surge is seeing a decrease in its slow duration, both reducing his ability to chase or peel enemies off himself. Empty the Crypts is also seeing a duration reduction. The zone control and pressure this ultimate provides gave teams large openings to siege objectives or stall out engages. The reduced duration should give teams more openings in these situations.

    Undead Surge

    • Decreased Slow Duration from 3s to 2s

    Empty the Crypts

    • Decreased Duration from 6s to 5s

    Cu Chulainn

    Early on in Season 5, Cu Chulainn was quite the powerhouse, receiving 3 nerfs to bring him more into line. As the Season has shaped out however, Cu Chulainn has struggled to keep up.

    Overall, his Berserk form is still quite impactful and that is what most of the nerfs were targeted towards. Rather than reverting that and bringing back frustration, we want to increase the power of Base Cu Chulainn and his teamfight potential. Spear of Mortal Pain’s cooldown is being reduced. This will allow him to bring more control to fights, while giving him a large boost to his Rage.

    Spear of Mortal Pain(War Cry)

    • Decreased Cooldown of Spear of Mortal Pain from 100s to 85s
    • Updated description to display the cooldown of Cu Chulainn’s transformed Ultimate (35s)

    Guan Yu

    A while back Guan Yu got significant changes that pushed him towards the top of Ranked and Normal play. His Passive applying to all abilities while in combat caused him him excel in many ways, especially with Conviction getting a 2x healing multiplier. When we changed this to 1.5x he quickly fell out of favor and went back to struggling behind the rest of the Gods.

    We feel we can bring back some of his healing capability and find a solid middle ground where Guan Yu will feel impactful but not overwhelming.


    • Boosted the bonus healing from 1.5x to 1.7x


    Hades is a god who has undergone a larger identity shift over the years. Previously a Guardian, today he plays as a Point Blank AoE Mage with high damage potential with high tradeoffs, but older stats that made sense back then currently hold him back from accomplishing this.

    We are increasing Hades’ base movement speed to better facilitate his close range damage. Pillar of Agony will also be buffed, specifically by increasing the Protections Hades receives while firing the ability. These two changes should help bring together Hades’ entire kit, allowing him to build more damage but still survive team fights.


    • Increased Movement Speed from 355 to 365

    Pillar of Agony

    • Increased Protections from 60/70/80/90/100 to 60/85/110/135/160


    Colossal Fury is supposed to be a moment of high impact where Vamana can charge forward and lead his team, but he often struggles at accomplishing that goal. The bonus health is not enough to keep him alive through focused damage and in many cases a single god can invalidate its use.

    We are increasing how frequently the heal occurs, and decreasing the amount to make his health regeneration more smooth. We are also adding a stacking Health Shield that will boost his survivability during combat without increasing his out of combat healing. Finally, Colossal Fury will now allow Vamana to step through players and player made walls, making him much more difficult to block from a fight.

    Colossal Fury

    • Vamana now also gains a stacking Health Shield every second equal to 0.6% to his max HP per .2s. This Shield fades when Vamana’s ultimate ends.
    • Changed his heal to tick every 0.2s instead of 1s
      Vamana still heals for the same amount of health each second as he did previously.
    • Can now pass through Player made walls while his ultimate is active.

    Hang on, there's a new adventure already? I thought domination was the final one of the year? It's not even been out that long.

    I do like the Zhong and Ares skins though, the fatman finally got a decent skin and I'm getting some good Nightmare Before Christmas vibes from it.

    Bit disappointed with the fantasy points store though. I have 19k points that I haven't been able to spend yet. I wish they hadn't taken Ragnarok Fenrir out so quickly.
    My mouth is dry from all the salt.

    In case you missed the update show, Zhong can ride his paintbrush like a broom and Ares T5 is epic, with the ability to switch and choose between all of your forms at level 20 by using his special emote. Altogether I think this patch looks promising, the skins look great. Can't wait, and then the next patch notes will be Arthur the confirmed.

    It's not an actual adventure, it's just the last part of older adventure (Shadows of Hercopolis or whatever it was called). So people can kill Loki.

    Ares T5 is super good the ultimate animation is great and final form looks pretty cool
    serqet skin also looks pretty cool imo definitely getting it
    kuzenbo skin is pretty basic but it's free so that's cool

    hades buff seems cool let's see how he does with it
    I know what I have become... I am the inside of this world... I taste the gore, and I smell the crying... AND I WANT MORE! I want to bathe in your flesh, I want to savor your fear. I wanna live inside a castle built of your agony, AND I WANT TO CRUMBLE IT WITH AN AXE TO YOUR CAROTID ARTERY!
