Garden of Terror Battleground Rework
Kerrigan Hero Rework
Update Brightwing’s talent tree to newer design philosophies.
Increase playmaking potential and raise her skill ceiling.
Give her a more active role while supporting.
Brightwing’s trait Soothing Mist still passively heals nearby Heroes, but now has an activatable cleanse on the D key, allowing her to remove slow, stun, and root effects.
Soothing Mist does not grant the “Unstoppable” status.
The ability has a long cooldown.
Arcane Flare (Q) has been reworked to reward skillful play.
Enemies caught in the center will allow Brightwing to immediately pulse Soothing Mist without triggering a cooldown.
The Arcane Flare projectile now travels faster.
Phase Shift (Z) now heals baseline. She will heal a Hero for a large percentage of max health upon arrival.
Hyper Shift (Level 1 Talent)
Increase Phase Shift’s healing by an additional 10% of the target’s maximum Health. Nearby enemy Minion deaths reduce Phase Shift’s cooldown by 2 seconds.
Phase Out (Level 16 Talent, Cooldown: 20 seconds)
Activate to place Brightwing in Stasis for 0.75 seconds.
Invisible Friends (Level 20 Talent)
Blink Heal grants Stealth to Brightwing. If Blink Heal is cast on a Hero, they are also granted Stealth. While Stealthed by Invisible Friends, Heroes heal for 44 Health per second and are Unrevealable for the first 0.5 seconds. Remaining stationary for at least 1.5 seconds while Stealthed grants Invisible.
