The terror that was Li-Ming should now be a lot more easier to counter.


Blizzard has released a small new patch for Heroes of the Storm that should make a lot of players happy. Li-Ming, the game’s latest hero, received lots of balance tweaks to better represent her intended skill level.

The biggest changes for her, however, is reducing the mana regeneration bonus for Astral Presence to trigger when below 25 percent mana, instead of 50 percent, as well as removing the Ess of Johan talent entirely.

Rehgar, Anub’arak’s, and Stitches have also been balanced. Find the full list of notes below:
