New Hero patch – Test Client Version 0.2.56 – 58 Patch Changelogs [Fayde Patch]


HoN is indeed becoming more like dota. This new patch changed lifesteal to be an attack modifier. As a result, this will ‘weaken’ ranged hitters. Magebane won’t be much imba coz he will use abyssal skull now instead of just the normal life steal.

For me the new hero – Fayde is really unique. However, the stats look like Nerubian Asassin in DotA as well as the AoE stun and mana burn. Her ulti is like Slark’s though. So obviously, her role will be to be sneaky and kill the supporting heroes right away.

Here’s the change log:

Version 0.2.58

– Life Steal items, except for Abyssal Skull, are now exclusive attack modifiers (will not stack with Frostburn, Frostwolf’s Skull, etc)
– Fixed an issue where the loading race number carries over to the next game, it should be reset properly each match now
– Fixed an issue where players who tried to add friends during the first few days of open beta experienced issues trying to request new friends got a message indicating they had already requested them and needed to wait. They should no longer need to wait any longer than 60 seconds to re-request their a friend
– Fixed an issue where certain players would always be flagged with a PSR of “N/A”, resulting in 100% win chance for their team

– Right clicking images for the various game mode/options on the “Join Game” notification should now close the notification properly
– Added new UI_CMD() AddTemplateListItemWithSortReversed() that takes the same parameters as AddTemplateListItemWithSort() but adds the newest elements to the top of the list instead of the end (so the newest item appears at the top of the widget.)
