Medivh has undergone a major rework to reward skillful use of his abilities and increase opportunities
for counterplay. MASTER’S TOUCH is now a baseline quest, freeing up players’ level 7 talent choice and rewarding them for skillful use of ARCANE RIFT. Arcane Rift’s damage has been reduced since the quest can now be completed earlier in the match. FORCE OF WILL’s cooldown and mana cost have increased, and it now heals allies for 20% of the damage it absorbs. Its reduced uptime coupled with its increased support power both reward Medivh for well-timed casting, and present opportunities for meaningful counterplay. New and revamped talents reward Medivh depending on the amount
of damage absorbed. FORCE OF MAGIC increases his spell power, while ENDURING WILL reduces
Force of Will’s cooldown. Medivh has several new
and improved talents that open up
exciting synergies and strategies. TEMPORAL FLUX, a Level 16 talent, reduces the cooldown of Medivh’s heroic ability every time he hits a hero with Arcane Rift or lands an auto attack. PORTAL MASTERY allows Medivh to place portals while in Raven Form. Manual placement of portals has been moved to the “1” key, leaving the “E” key unchanged, so that it can still be quickly activated in an emergency. RAVEN FAMILIAR grants Heroes a raven every time they use a portal, allowing them to bombard their enemies using portals in quick succession. We hope these changes
reward Medivh players for skillful play, while also opening windows for meaningful counters. Check out the patch notes to learn more and make sure to leave us a comment or subscribe to Heroes of the Storm around the web. We’ll see you in the Nexus! Destiny is at hand.
