General[edit]

  • Base hero gold bounty increased from 120 + L*8 to 125 + L*8 where L = hero level
  • Reworked bounty gold streak formula

Old:
Streak gold = (35x-5) where x = current streak
New:
Streak gold = (5x^2 + 5x) where x = current streak

Streak gold goes from
100/135/170/205/240/275/310/345
to
60/100/150/210/280/360/450/550

  • Reworked XP streak formula

Old:
Streak XP = 10(x-1) * L, where x = current streak and L = hero level

New:
Streak XP = (x^2-x+10) * L, where x = current streak and L = hero level

Streak bounty goes from
20/30/40/50/60/70/80/90 * L
to
14/20/28/38/50/64/80/98 * L

  • Attack and armor types are now represented through abilities. Most damage remains unchanged with a few exceptions in creep vs creep and creep vs tower situations
  • Added new ability: Piercing. Piercing units deal 150% bonus damage to non-hero units and 50% less damage to Standard Units
  • Added new ability: Reinforced. Reinforced units deal 150% bonus damage to other Reinforced units and reduce damage received from heroes by 50% and from non-hero units by 30%
  • Added new ability: Runty. Runty units deal 25% less damage to heroes
  • Piercing, Reinforced, and Runty aren't stealable (e.g: Devour)

  • All buildings and siege units now have the Reinforced ability
  • Melee creeps and their upgrades all have the Runty ability
  • Serpent Wards and Plague Wards now have the Piercing ability
