IMPROVEMENTS

GRYPHON

Side Dodge Attacks (Soul Cleaver)

  • Side Dodge Attacks are now 14 damage (down from 16)
  • Side Dodge Attacks can no longer be delayed in side dodges; they will now always happen at 300ms (previously delayable until 500ms)

Dev Comments: This should make Side Dodge Attacks more predictable, as well as making it impossible to delay to dodge on most mix-ups, while still being a good dodge that leads to finishers.

Veteran's Kick and Slash

  • Kick Follow-up damage has been reduced to 24 (down from 28)

Gryphon's Shove

  • Gryphon's Shove is now a Dodge Forward + Guard Break input
  • Gryphon's Shove no longer chains after a miss
  • Gryphon's Shove now costs 15 stamina (up from 12)
  • Gryphon's Shove no longer pauses Stamina Regeneration

Dev Comments: The previous Back + Guard Break input of 600ms was unreactable for most players outside of high-level play. This meant that Gryphon's Shove was problematic (for different reasons) in both casual and high-level play.

By making Gryphon's Shove a 500ms Dodge Forward Melee, combined with the additional minimum of 300ms spent in the Forward Dodge, the move becomes predictable for most players, while also being unreactable to players at all levels of play.

Gryphon's Shove should now function as a mix-up and opener that is less frustrating to face.

Draconite Mist (Tier 2 Feat)

  • Draconite Mist now heals for 15 (down from 20)
  • AoE range of Draconite Mist's healing effect reduced to 8 meters (down from 11)

Draconite Bolt (Tier 3 Feat)

  • Draconite Bolt now heals for 15 (down from 20)
  • AoE range of Draconite Bolt's healing effect reduced to 8 meters (down from 11)
  • Draconite Bolt damage reduced to 20 (down from 30)
  • Cast time of Draconite Bolt increased to 600ms (up from 400ms)

BUG FIXES

CUSTOMIZATION

  • Bug Fix: Fixed an issue that caused the female Gladiator “Chimera Poeta' helm have the wrong model (FH-1667)

IMPROVEMENTS

BREACH

  • Improvement: Decreased Pikemen Health to 37 (from 46)
  • Improvement: Decreased Pikemen Damage to 8 (from 10)
  • Improvement: Decreased Fortifier Health to 80 (from 120)
  • Improvement: Decreased Fortifier Side Heavy Damage to 24 (from 40)
  • Improvement: Decreased Guardian Health to 520 (from 600)
  • Improvement: Decreased Commander Health to 855 (from 950)
  • Improvement: Decreased Commander Top Heavy Unblockable Damage to 48 (from 60)

Dev Comments: Following the Core Combat Update from last year we now revised the health and damage values from all different NPCs in Breach. The previous values no longer fell in line with the damage output from Heroes. We know that Pikemen were a source of frustration for many and with their new health values, most Heroes with a Light-Heavy combo will be able to dispatch them quicker with less stamina consumption.


USER INTERFACE

  • Improved the Dominion scoring widget:
  • The 1000 points mark is now visible on the gauge to make the Breaking threshold easier to see at a glance
  • A lock will appear on a team’s gauge when they reached over 1000 hard points as Breaking cannot be reverted anymore

Dev Comments While the previous scoring widget was functional, we wanted to make it easier for players to quickly grasp how close teams are to Breaking, and whether or not a rally is possible by taking a capture zone. Even if these are fairly known rules to most players, we hope it will make the widget more comfortable to use, as well as clarify how the scoring works for newer players.
