Whirlwind of Rage and Steel Whirlwind of Rage and Steel

  • Fixed an issue where using your ultimate on a knocked up target would cause them not to be thrown.

General

  • Xing Tian had a few incorrect numbers on some of his abilities at specific ranks, so we are fixing these. Xing Tian is not receiving any real balance changes this patch but will be monitored closely to make sure he is working as intended and is at a reasonable power level.

Whirlwind of Rage and Steel Whirlwind of Rage and Steel

  • Decreased the wind up time on Whirlwind of Rage and Steel from 1.25s -> 1s.

General

  • Xing Tian is seeing the balance of his kit shifted around, but we overall wanted to bring him up in strength. By making his ultimate more well defined for enemy players to play around, we felt comfortable bringing back some of the strength of his main abilities. Furious Roar's damage now happens over a longer period but will end up stronger in the end, and Hook Slam's Root has been brought back allowing Xing Tian more control over enemy players in a fight.
  • Fixed an issue where Xing Tian's Ultimate could get stuck on the Joust Map.

Furious Roar Furious Roar

  • Increased duration from 1/2/2/3/3 to 1/2/3/4/4.
  • Decreased dot damage from 4% per second to 3% per second.
  • Increased base damage from 70/100/130/160/190 to 80/115/150/185/210.

Hook Slam Hook Slam

  • This ability now roots instead of slows on the slam hit.

Whirlwind of Rage and Steel Whirlwind of Rage and Steel

  • Increased casting time from .72s to 1.25s.
  • There is a new animation for casting of the ultimate.
  • This ability now deals 25/45/65/85/105 + 35% per hook, rotation, and throw.
  • Cooldown reduced from 100s to 90s.

General

  • Some small adjustments for Xing Tian, mainly focused around some of his damage and cooldowns.

Furious Roar Furious Roar

  • Adjusted cooldown from 15/14/13/12/11 -> 14s at all ranks.

Hook Slam Hook Slam

  • This ability now Slows for 30% instead of Roots. Duration remains 1/1.25/1.5/1.75/2s.
  • Reduced Axe Damage from 30/45/60/75/90 -> 25/40/55/70/85.
  • Reduced Slam Damage from 60/90/120/150/180 -> 50/80/110/140/170.

Sky-Cutting Axe Sky-Cutting Axe

  • Reduced cooldown from 14 -> 15.

General

  • Xing Tian has continued to perform exceptionally well. His high base damage numbers and % damage option allowed him to build exceptionally defensive while still being a top damage dealer. The changes below are designed to bring his Health more in-line with aggressive Guardians, and take the edge off of the damage he deals while also applying Crowd Control.
  • Reduced Health per level from 100 -> 90.

Hook Slam Hook Slam

  • Axe Damage reduced from 30/50/70/90/110 -> 30/45/60/75/90.
  • Slam Damage reduced from 60/100/140/180/220 -> 60/90/120/150/180.

General

  • When viewing Xing Tian's performance, we noticed his Ultimate was still providing a high amount of damage tied to a very potent, potentially team-wide, Crowd Control effect. We have increased the Cooldown to 100s at all ranks to control the potency of this skill to still be strong, but more manageable.

Whirlwind of Rage and Steel Whirlwind of Rage and Steel

  • Increased Cooldown from 100/95/90/85/80s -> 100s at all ranks.

General

  • Xing Tian had a strong release and we are making a few adjustments. Overall he was performing very well and had high damage. Somewhat paradoxically though, players didn't feel the impact of this damage. His Furious Roar now does slightly less damage but does it's damage quicker, which should let players feel the impact of the damage being dealt. Whirlwind of Rage and Steel will now allow for more reaction time, deal less damage overall, and deal less damage for players who escape early.
  • We feel that Xing should still be rewarded for hitting this skill for the full duration, but want players who escape to also feel a reward.
  • Added missing Difficulty text.
  • Updated non-English translations to correct ability descriptions and values

Furious Roar Furious Roar

  • Decreased DoT duration from 1.5/2/2.5/3/3.5 -> 1/2/2/3/3.
