 Vainglory Update 4.8 is coming to with a fresh round of tweaks to some of your favorite heroes. While some of the changes are small, they should all be impactful and help to up your game! We’ve included notes with some of the changes to help you understand our reasoning. Check out the balance changes coming for Update 4.8 below!

 


HEROES


 

ADAGIO

GIFT OF FIRE (A)

  • Burst Heal Health Ratio
    • 9% → 10%

ARDAN

VANGUARD (A)

  • Barrier Health Ratio
    • 30% → 35%

GAUNTLET (C)

  • Cooldown
    • 120 / 110 / 100 → 120 / 105 / 90

CAINE

TRIPLE TAP (A)

  • Slow Strength
    • 25% / 30% / 35% / 40% / 50% → 30% / 35% / 40% / 45% / 60%

CHURNWALKER

STATS

  • Base Movement Speed
    • 3.5 → 3.7

Celeste is having difficulty finding her footing after the last nerfs. We still want to solidify her role as a zoning mage, so we are going to bump up the damage on her primary tools.

CELESTE

HELIOGENESIS (A)

  • Impact Damage
    • 60 / 105 / 150 / 195 / 240 → 60 / 110 / 160 / 210 / 260
  • Supernova Damage
    • 80 / 140 / 200 / 260 / 320 → 80 / 145 / 210 / 275 / 340

SOLAR STORM (A)

  • Lead Star Crystal Ratio
    • 80% → 90%
  • Trailing Star Crystal Ratio
    • 15% → 20%

Flicker has not seen much play in the past few patches. We’re hoping that these changes bring him more in line with the other Captains and allows him to sneak around the map more easily.

FLICKER

WILLOW WHISPER (PERK)

  • Movement Speed Bonus
    • 1.5 → 2.0

FAIRY DUST (B)

  • Slow Strength
    • 35% / 40% / 45% / 50% / 60% → 40% / 45% / 50% / 55% / 65%

MOONCLOAK (C)

  • Cooldown
    • 120 / 100 / 80 → 110 / 90 / 70

Ishtar is still proving to be a powerful force to be reckoned with. We are adjusting the cooldown on her Shadow Razor since it is her primary ability but also giving a greater incentive to overdrive her Blade Whirl by decreasing the damage at early levels.

ISHTAR

SHADOW RAZOR (A)

  • Cooldown
    • 13 / 12 / 11 / 10 / 7 → 15 / 14 / 13 / 12 / 9

BLADE WHIRL (B)

  • Damage
    • 60 / 105 / 150 / 195 / 240 → 45 / 90 / 135 / 180 / 270 

LANCE

GYTHIAN WALL (B)

  • Stun Duration
    • 0.6s / 0.7s / 0.8s / 0.9s / 1.2s
  • Max Stun Duration
    • 1.4s → 1.6s

LYRA

PRINCIPLE ARCANUM (PERK)

  • Heavy Attack Slow Health Ratio
    • 0.04% → 0.05%

IMPERIAL SIGIL (A)

  • Heal Over Time Health Ratio
    • 11% → 13%

PHINN

QUIBBLE (A)

  • Slow / Stun Duration
    • 0.9s → 1.1s

YLVA

CHARGE SHOT (A)

  • Bonus Damage Adjusted
    • 80 / 120 / 160 / 200 / 240 → 60 / 120 / 180 / 240 / 360
