Heroes of Newerth Patch version 0.1.62 Changelog

frostburn

This is the latest patch of Hereos of Newerth.

They did a major work in Hack and Slash. It’s now known as Frostburn. Frostburn I guess will empower a lot of melee heroes especially Rampage (Barathrum). I also tried using it in other heroes and it’s really effective. So far, I’ve tried it in Predator, Hammerstorm, Arachna, Wretched Hag and Forsaken Archer.I won all those games because of this item. It’s so imba that I think they will nerf it a little bit.

I guess there will be another update soon but I won’t be playing again in December because I have to go back to our province and celebrate the holidays.

Anyway here’s the changelog:

Version 0.1.62

Announcement

Due to increased precautions and security measures, when you log into the game and main website you will be prompted to change your password. We recommend you do this immediately. You will have until December 22nd 12:00 PM EST (5:00 PM GMT) to change it, after which you will be forced to enter a new password in order to play.

Your new password cannot be the same as your old password and it must be at least 6 characters long. If you have changed your password in the last 10 days this may not effect you.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
