Link to the official patch notes is here:

  • Jingle Shells Kuzenbo: That's a pretty cute kappa.
  • Dual Tech Hel: Okay I like this one a lot.
  • Kitty Kaboom Serqet: Eh. Meh.
  • Battle Queen Hera: It's okay.
  • Shadow Stalker Izanami: this one a lot too.
  • Count Baron Samedi: S'okay I guess.
  • Stitched Horror Zhong Kui: Oh damn, Stuke was right. This is basically Oogie Boogie...or like one of the things from the movie 9. Freaking finally he gets a new skin, and it's a badass one.
  • Godslayer Ares: The new T5. I actually didn't see it in action. I love Ares but no way am I putting in the money to get the skin.

God Changes:
  • Ah Puch (nerfs): Undead Surge's slow duration decreases from 3 seconds to 2 seconds. Empty the Crypts' duration decreases from 6 seconds to 5 seconds. These are very reasonable adjustments. I'm happy with them.

  • Cu Chulainn (buff): Spear of Mortal Pain / War Cry cooldown reduced from 100 seconds to 85 seconds. Fair buff. I haven't played him in a while. I probably should.

  • Guan Yu (buff): Conviction gets a bit of his full-stack healing modifier restored, from 1.5x to 1.7x. 2x was probably too strong, but 1.5x felt a bit on the weak side. This is a nice buff for him, since he has been pretty weak.

  • Hades (buffs): Got a base MS increase from 355 to 365. Pillar of Agony's protections increased from 60 / 70 / 80 / 90 / 100 to 60 / 85 / 110 / 135 / 160. This is actually very nice for him. Doesn't make Hades more fun to play (sorry), but gives him a lot more survivability (even when building very few protections as a Mid or something) when he's most vulnerable in his ult.

  • Vamana (buff): Colossal Fury gains a stacking health shield of 0.6% max health every 0.2 seconds, and his actual healing changes from every 2 seconds to every 1 second. In this form, he can also pass through player-made obstacles (like Odin's Ring of Spears). This is a very nice QoL change for him, and is a damn hard reflected counter to Odin, who used to be the bane of his existence, due to both the trapping and the 100% healing reduction fully countering his ult. I do find him fun to play, so this is nice.
Very solid buffs to lower-tier gods...the love for the warriors is strong. Stuke is happy. Bleach manufacturers are not.

Still waiting for Arachne re-work and proper Freya nerfs, perhaps more Pele nerfs too. Hera nerf would be welcome as well.

Lets just hope Disney doesn't threaten to hit HR with the lawsuit hammer and the new Zhong skin has to be pulled.

Liking the Baron Samedi skin better than the Half Life one... 10/10 will get. Sucks that it's getting released later than the rest of the skins though.
