    RIP Doom, we knew ye too well.

    Execution Order maybe playable now?

    Worms got some hits as well.

    Also worth noting that Xulos, though unlisted, changed slightly with the changes to Drain. He has worse healing now.

    I don't understand the changes on inkblight. I thought her base abilities are the same.

    didn't notice the rotmaw change...and no more +1 spd on logistic flanking
  14. Elric

    Elric I need me some PIE!

    Witches got whacked by the nerf bat:

    1) Coven Claw lost Shadestrike.
    2) Shadestrike (on Elsari Votary and Dark Seductress) affects spaces within 2 spaces of the target, not 3.
    3) Shrinking Gaze (on Mysian Lamia) affects enemy champions moving within 3, not 4.
    4) Deafening Aura (on Banshee of the Rose, Cackling Witch, and Wailing Banshee) affects enemy champions moving within 2 spaces, not 3.
    5) Deafening Aura does 2 damage, not 3.
    6) Ruin (on Croma Extinguisher) now only grants a bonus when destroying a friendly relic.
    7) Shadestrike lasts for 3 turns, not 6.
    8) Elsari Coven only works on enemy champs when they touch an enemy DMZ, no longer on deploy from the rune dock.
    9) According to IronStylus, AoE nerf to Despoil. Also, I think Despoil got a reduction in how long it lasts.
    10) From IronStylus, +2 nora to Sabotage: Lethargy on Golden Lamia.

    Wow, that is A LOT of nerfs!

    Anything I missed?

    Looks like Disease Amp is going to be a big thing, neat.

    I'm sorry, what rune are you talking about? I thought we deleted that one a long time ago.
  16. IronStylus

    IronStylus I need me some PIE!

    AoE nerf to despoil and no preparation choice (discusable if it's a nerf) in up1 to mysian, instead having petrifying gaze.
    Also a lil +2 nora to sabotage: lethargy but i wouldn't even look at it if you didn't ask
  17. Sokolov

    Sokolov The One True Cactuar Desert Owl Games

    Note that Coven Claw also lost Vuln: Magical.
    IronStylus and SireofSuns like this.

    I blame the Bone Mine.

    SireofSuns I need me some PIE!

    People always told me she was just a better version of Dark Seductress, so I rather like her change. :)
