- Nerfed .
- Bug fixes.
- Reduced base armor by 2
- Reduced base movement speed by 10
- Increased Scorched Earth cooldown from 60/50/40/30 to 60/55/50/45
- Readjusted the Divine Rapier pickup rules to prevent some abuses.
- If the first time the item is lost from its original owner it is picked up by an allied hero, it becomes muted (no damage) until it returns to its owner. It has the same rules as the previous version when an enemy is carrying it. Here are the complete rapier rules to clarify:
- "Original Rapier" has two modes, active and muted. It is active (bonus damage, droppable) when carried by the owner and muted (no damage, droppable) when carried by an ally
- "Free Rapier" is the item state that occurs when an enemy acquires it. This is a permanent transformation for the item. It will always provide bonus damage and will always be undroppable, regardless of how it switches sides back and forth afterwards. This is the same as the previous patch.
- Summary: The primary change that is done here is that a hero cannot intentionally pool the rapier to his ally.
- Recoded Bounty Hunter's wind walk damage bonus as to not require two separate attacks to trigger his new passive
- -unlock now requires a majority vote before the gold and items of a leaver will be released. As a reminder, once a hero is unlocked, it cannot be switched.
- Added a 15 second wait period before the drafting begins in -CD to give both teams a chance to look at the heroes.
- Renamed the control on/off commands to be clearer which is which. They are now -disableselection (-ds) and -enableselection (-es)
