Game Balance


Tier 1


Buzz.png
Buzz green_arrow.png
- Attack speed: 1.16 -> 1.2

Consort.png
Consort green_arrow.png
- Attack speed: 1.12 -> 1.15

Tier 3


SeaSerpent.png
Sea Serpent green_arrow.png
- Damage: 74 -> 75

No longer leaves wave 1 with 1 health

Gateguard.png
Gateguard green_arrow.png
- Chaos Hound now spawns further back

Harbinger.png
Harbinger green_arrow.png
- Cerberus now spawns further back

This change allows Chaos Hound/Cerberus to live longer, which also means the wave won’t quickly refocus and target your Gateguard/Harbinger.

Warg.png
Warg green_arrow.png
- Attack speed: 0.819 -> 0.84

Tier 4


Butcher.png
Butcher green_arrow.png red_arrow.png
- Attack range: 300 -> 200

HeadChef.png
Head Chef green_arrow.png red_arrow.png
- Attack range: 300 -> 200

Shorter range allows Butcher and Head Chef to tank better for DPS units

Honeyflower.png
Honeyflower green_arrow.png red_arrow.png
- Health: 1150 -> 1180
- 10 + 0.2% (0.1% to bosses) -> 10 + 0.1% (0.05% to bosses)

Reverting the health nerf from last patch in favor of a % damage nerf

Deathcap.png
Deathcap red_arrow.png
- Damage: 30 + 0.4% (0.2% to bosses) -> 30 + 0.3% (0.15% to bosses)

APS.png
APS green_arrow.png red_arrow.png
- Attack range: 250 -> 200

MPS.png
MPS green_arrow.png red_arrow.png
- Attack range: 250 -> 200

Shorter range allows APS and MPS to tank better for DPS units

Tier 5


Nightmare.png
Nightmare red_arrow.png
- Attack range: 150 -> 100

Doppelganger.png
Doppelganger red_arrow.png
- Attack range: 150 -> 100

Reverting this change, which made Nightmare and Doppelganger act too much like ranged units

Whitemane.png
Whitemane red_arrow.png
- Damage: 180 -> 175

Tier 6


Eggsack.png
Eggsack green_arrow.png red_arrow.png
- Health: 2000 -> 2200
- Azurite Shell: Reflect damage: 10 + 5% -> 10
- When you build an Eggack in front, your fighters now aggro a bit later, which allows you to more easily use melee DPS with Eggsack. We recommend testing things in a custom game.

The following changes are postponed (planned for later):
- If your Eggsack dies, it now immediately spawns a premature Hydra during the wave
- Premature penalty: 15% per stack -> 40% per stack
- Stacking: Multiplicative -> Additive (40% for 1 stack, 80% for 2 stacks)

Hydra.png
Hydra red_arrow.png
- Health: 2850 -> 3000
- Damage: 174 -> 138
- Hydraling: Health: 950 -> 1000
- Hydraling: Damage: 58 -> 46

Goals:
- Make Eggsack less roll-dependent
- Make Eggsack more accessible mid-late game
- Reduce reward of a fully powered Hydra
- Shift Hydra into more of a tank

BananaHaven.png
Banana Haven green_arrow.png red_arrow.png
- Health: 6000 -> 6250
- Thorns: Damage reflect: 45 + 15% -> 40 + 15%

Mercenaries


Witch.png
Witch red_arrow.png
- Mana: 15 -> 24
- Necromancy: Mana gain per unit death: 1 -> 2
- Summon Froggo: Mana cost: 15 -> 24

Keep in mind that base mana regeneration is still 1 for all units with mana
