Bug Fixes

Heroes, Abilities, and Talents

  • Fixed an issue that could cause Tyrael, Uther, and Gall players to incorrectly receive AFK Warnings due to the combination of their post-death effects and lengthy death timers at later levels.
  • Rexxar: Misha can now push Minions and allied Mercenaries, but will not push enemy or uncaptured Mercenaries.
  • Sgt. Hammer: Basic Attack range indicators should now appear consistent while Sgt. Hammer is in both Tank and Siege Modes.
  • Zagara: After learning Medusa Blades, Zagara will now deal the correct amount of damage to her secondary Basic Attack targets.

User Interface

  • Commendations: Fixed an issue in which Commendations could incorrectly credit players with unrealistic stats, such as 100% of the team’s damage soaked or Healing done.
