    Pins and Dolls Patch Notes | 06/16

    Pins and Dolls Patch Notes | 16th June, 2015




    Nox
    Nox has had a significant redesign this patch.
    • Flame of the Night
      • Nox’s candles gather energy from all abilities she uses. For every ability Nox casts a candle is lit. For every candle lit Nox gains +3% Magical Power. When Nox takes damage one of her candles is blown out.
    • Shadow Lock
      • Nox extends her shadow, Rooting a single enemy god in place for 2s and dealing damage equal to 30/40/50/60/70 +20% of her Magical Power every 0.5s. Nox must channel to maintain hold on the target, but may cancel this ability early. Cost: 50/55/60/65/70. Cooldown: 10s.
    • Siphon Darkness
      • Nox creates a void of darkness that silences all enemies within. After 2s it explodes, dealing 90/160/230/300/370 +100% of her Magical Power as damage. Cost: 70/75/80/85/90. Cooldown: 15s.
    • Shadow Step
      • Nox dashes forward, dealing 70/110/150/190/230 +40% of her Magical Power as damage to all enemies. If she hits an allied god, she leaps into their shadow, traveling with them. When Nox exits a shadow, she deals damage again in radius 20 around her. Nox may cancel this ability early to exit shadows. Cost: 90. Cooldown: 15s.
    • Night Terror
      • Nox unleashes a vortex of dark energy that explodes on contact with an enemy god or surface, dealing 200/250/300/350/400 +60% of her Magical Power as damage to all enemies within range 20, and an additional 20/25/30/35/40 +5% of her Magical Power every 1s for 5s. Enemies hit are also weakened, and deal 30% less damage for the duration. Cost: 100. Cooldown: 90.

    Items
    Most of our itemization adjustments this patch are focused around Hunters, and the recent meta shift. We are primarily adjusting early game builds in this patch, and we will look to make more substantial adjustments to the late game as needed in subsequent patches.

    • Bluestone Pendant
      “Bluestone Pendant’s effect reaches farther beyond the early game than we’d like for a starter item, and is seeing a reduction in its percentage based Passive. Its power is also being reduced.”
      • Reduced Physical Power from 15 to 10.
      • Reduced passive mana return from 3 to 1.5% of missing Mana.

    • Witchblade
      “Witchblade’s purpose is to target enemy players who are built for in-hand damage, and is being scaled up to match the Attack Speeds these kinds of gods are able to achieve given Season 2 itemization.”
      • Increased Attack Speed slow Aura from 15% to 20%.
      • Increase Power reduction on enemies from 25 to 30.

    • Ichaival
      “Ichaival is a bridge item that brings early strength by stealing power, but is over-statted for its cost. Bringing the Attack Speed value down better highlights its purpose.”
      • Reduced Attack Speed from 30% to 20%.

    • The Executioner
      “Executioner is getting a slight adjustment to bring down it’s Attack Speed contribution to an overall build.”
      • Reduced Attack Speed from 25% to 20%.
      • Cost increased from 2200 to 2250.

    • Heartseeker
      “Heartseeker’s cost is being increased, to make picking it up a bit slower.”
      • Increased cost from 1790 to 1890.

    • Shield of Regrowth
      “More Physical Protections are being added to better highlight Shield of Regrowth as a hybrid item.”
      • Physical Protection increased from 20 to 30.

    • Runic Shield
      “Runic Shield is Witchblade’s mystical cousin, but costed slightly too much to be picked up in some situations.”
      • Reduced cost from 2400 to 2300.

    • Ancile
      “Ancile, as a stacking item, has some ramp up time and was difficult to pick up in time to get the Protections and Cooldown Reduction you wanted for a build at a comfortable timing. Reducing its cost means you can start stacking sooner.”
      • Reduced cost from 2400 to 2250.

    • Celestial Legion Helm
      “This item exists to fight crits. With some games having two or more players per team with crit and this item still not being purchased... ‘Probably needs a buff.”
      • Reduced price from 2850 to 2350.
      • Reduced passive proc frequency from every 15s to every 6s.

        • Reduced duration from 3s to 2s.
        • Fixed issue where Vulcan’s turrets would not take damage from Bees! if hit with Ah Muzen Cab’s Honey.

    • Ah Puch
      “Ah Puch’s Ultimate will now end if he dies. This is a major change in how players fight him, and add additional vulnerability to the God of Decay.”

        • Heals for 1.25% per stack, max. 20.
      • Wind Fire Wheels

    Is Nox untargetable while possessing an ally? If her Odin ally gets hit by a Kraken, does she take damage as well?

    Also Hi-Rez, please keep in mind when you nerf hunters by buffing warrior items you're also nerfing assassins, the return of this improved Witchblade along with the nerf of Executioner is going to be rough on Arachne...seems like you ignored the main problems with hunters which are LIFESTEAL and CRIT.

    No neith nerf

    No posidon nerf

    No Xbalanque nerf

    Nox is kinda hard to kill but looks amazing to play

    The game is still very snowball and something needs to be done about it

    I feel like hunters needed their clear nerfed also.

    topaz acorn is now useless, sacrifice your escape for a single target stun? not worth.

    rest of the changes are good imo, although exe/ichaval change will hurt other gods probably equal or more than hunters
    I don't like being squishy, I prefer being a raid boss

    That's an interesting skill, going into shadows of an allied god.
