General

  • Ao Kuang's old Passive was a bit clunky when it came to generating Stacks (such as it not following out-of-combat rules) and didn't help Ao Kuang in fights that went longer than his initial opening. :*His new Passive rewards successful executes that will give him additional potency throughout the rest of the game and in extended fights. His base stats have also been adjusted to allow Ao Kuang to have a bit more staying power when it comes to his Mana pool.
  • Increased Mana from 200 -> 240.
  • Increase Mana per Level from 36 -> 38.
  • Increased MP5 from 4.5 -> 4.8.
  • Increased MP5 per Level from .2 -> .41.

New Passive - Dragon King's Sword New Passive - Dragon King's Sword

  • Each time Ao Kuang successfully uses his dragon form to execute an enemy god he gains a stack of Magical Power and Lifesteal. Stacks up to 3 times, stacks are permanent.
  • Magical Power per Stack: 15
  • Magical Lifesteal per Stack: 5%

General

  • Ao Kuang, Izanami and The Morrigan are all receiving a change to their stealth mechanics. While they both drop minion aggro, a stray arrow could instantly cancel the stealth effect and limit the use of these skills. These characters stealth will now only break from non-minion damage.

Water Illusion

  • Minion Damage can no longer break the Stealth from Water Illusion.

General

  • Ao Kuang can burst down gods in a variety of situations. With a full set of damaging abilities and an execute, it is important that players have some time to react to him. Dropping the damage on his easiest to confirm ability will help in that goal.

Wild Storm

  • Damage decreased from 90/140/190/240/290 to 80/125/170/215/260.

General

  • Water Illusion functions as a great escape tool that can punish enemies who get close, but in many cases the offensive use of this ability in conjunction with the damage from Wild Storm was giving him a bit too much damage. The base damage and scaling for this ability is receiving a hit to both adjust the early game and late game use of this ability.

Water Illusion

  • Damage reduced from 90/140/190/240/290 to 70/120/170/220/270.

Dragon Call

  • Fixed an issue where this ability would incorrectly hit non-highlighted targets.

General

  • Ao Kuang has been suffering since his last nerf. We've chosen to focus his Season 3 on being a stronger Late game pick, and as such have adjusted his base scaling on several stats.
  • Increased Health Scaling from 74 -> 82 per level.
  • Increased starting HP5 from 7 -> 10.
  • Increased HP5 Scaling from 0.48 -> 0.7 per level.

King's Sword King's Sword

  • Updated description to clarify when energy regenerates.

General

  • Ao Kuang was seeing very positive performances at the highest levels of play, but struggled in the hands of less experienced players. One of the biggest strengths at higher level play was the low Cooldown nature of Wild Storm. We have shifted some of the power away from this skill in favor of increasing the strength of Dragon Call. The goal is to balance out Ao Kuang over the multiple skill ranges he was being played at.
