HERO ABILITIES

head_bracket

 THAT’S SWELL (HEROIC PERK)

Lorelai’s basic attacks deal crystal damage and she becomes empowered when she’s on a source of water from her abilities. Using an ability while Lorelai’s on a source of water consumes the water she’s on and empowers the ability used.


 

FISH FOOD (A)

Lorelai calls upon her aquatic friends at the target location. After 0.8 seconds, her pet clam snaps the area, dealing damage to enemy units inside and stunning them.

 

  • A pool filled with small piranhas persists for 8 seconds afterwards, dealing damage over time to enemy units inside

SPLASHDOWN (B)

Lorelai throws a sphere of water at target location. After a short delay, the water forms a pool for 8 seconds, speeding up allies and slowing enemies inside.

 


WATERWALL (ULTIMATE)

Lorelai forms a protective veil of water on target allied hero cleansing the target of any movement-impairing effects.

 

  • After a short delay, the water barrier drops on the ground, leaving behind a pool for 8 seconds.
  • Temporarily grants the target a large barrier.

5v5 EARLY ACCESS:
PRE-REGISTER NOW!

bottom_bracket

 

When we started Super Evil Megacorp, we set out to challenge the notion that mobile-first gamers were somehow inferior to gamers on other platforms. We believed that every phone was a portable next-gen console, and that every mobile player deserved games just as core, strategic and performant as players on PC. 

Our mission now is creating a 5v5 MOBA with the most accurate and responsive controls, with superior gameplay and strategic depth and with the best graphics and highest frame rates on mobile. Vainglory 5v5 will make no compromises, and we want you to have a chance to play before anyone else. 

Pre-register for Vainglory 5v5 now for a chance at early access and exclusive rewards like unlocking the “Founding 5v5” player badge.


GLOBAL UNVEILING OF VAINGLORY 5V5

If you want to see Vainglory 5v5 played competitively for the very first time, tune in Dec. 17 to Finals Day of the 2017 Vainglory World Championship in Singapore. Worlds will feature a special segment with two 5v5 exhibition matches, and we’ll unveil live on air many of the gameplay and map details you’re searching for. Watch the broadcast live on Vainglory’s twitch, YouTube and Facebook Live pages, and we’ll also feature VODs in-game after the event ends.

In the interim, be sure to check the in-game News section and Vainglory official social media channels regularly for new reveals and tidbits of information!

bottom_bracket

HERO BALANCE

ALPHA

“Alpha has been a reliable pick in recent updates and while we are happy she is finally seeing competitive play again, we feel she can use a slight update. This will give the enemy team more time to fight Alpha while her reboot is down. This change to the ult coupled with the aftershock nerf should bring her more into line with the others while still maintaining her identity.” —Nivmett

TERMINATION PROTOCOL

  • Cooldown increased from 75/65/55 to 85/75/65

ARDAN

“Ardan has been a very strong and reliable pick this update, largely because his perk has taken advantage of the health changes more than most.”  —Nivmett

JULIA’S GIFT

  • Missing-life healed reduced from 1.5% to 0.8%

BARON

“Baron’s move speed has been unnaturally slow. This tuneup will bring him in line with Phinn (not exactly a speed demon). Changes to Jump Jets and Porcupine Mortars may open the doors for more CP Baron in the future.” —Nivmett

STATS

  • Move speed increased from 2.6 to 2.8

PORCUPINE MORTARS

  • Cooldown reduced from 5 seconds at all levels to 5/4.5/4/3.5/2.5
  • Energy cost reduced from 70/80/90/100/110 to 60/65/70/75/80

JUMP JETS

  • Crystal power no longer increases jump range
  • Crystal power also decreases the delay before Baron’s jump

BLACKFEATHER

“These changes coupled with the Breaking Point nerf should dull his blade slightly.” —Nivmett

FEINT OF HEART

  • Cooldown increased from 8/7.5/7/6.5/6 to 10/9.5/9/8.5/8

ON POINT

  • Barrier strength reduced from 125/165/205/245/325 to 120/150/180/210/270

  • Energy Cost increased from 40 to 50

CATHERINE

“Catherine players were running out of energy far before the fight was finished.” —Nivmett

MERCILESS PURSUIT

  • Energy cost reduced from 50/60/70/80/100 to 30/40/50/60/70

CELESTE

“Like Catherine, Celeste was running out of energy before the fight was over. This change should keep her in the battle longer.”
—Nivmett

HELIOGENESIS

  • Energy cost reduced from 50 to 40

FLICKER

“While Flicker is closer to where we want him than ever before, the mad scientist may need a few more bumps to get him there.”
—Nivmett

FAIRY DUST

  • Cooldown reduced from 14/13/12/11/10 to 14/13/12/11/9

MOONCLOAK

  • Stealth duration increased from 8/9/10 to 8/10/12

BLOOD SONG

  • Lifesteal per stack increased from 1% to 1.2%

GRUMPJAW

“These changes will allow Grumpjaw to maintain his stacks easier while returning a lot of power for his Crystal and Utility paths.” —Nivmett

LIVING ARMOR

  • Time between stack falloff increased from 0.7 to 1 second
  • Stack charge time decreased from 5 to 3 seconds

GRUMPY

  • Damage per stack increased from 10/25/40/55/85 to 20/35/50/65/95
  • Crystal ratio per stack increased from 10% to 20%

IDRIS

“Weapon Power Idris is having trouble bursting down tankier targets. With this change, he will be able to juke and weave through the fight more easily.” —Nivmett

SHROUDSTEP

  • Cooldown decreased from 15/14/13/12/10 to 13/12/11/10/8

SHIMMER STRIKE

  • Now cleanses move-impairing effects on activation
  • Removes Churnwalker’s chain upon use.

STATS

REZA



NETHERFORM DETONATOR

  • Now cleanses move-impairing effects on activation

SAW

“These changes will reduce SAW’s power slightly and bring his armor and shield back in line with all the other carries.”  —Nivmett

STATS

  • Armor and Shield reduced from 20-60 to 20-50
  • Weapon power reduced from 50-127 to 50-116

SAMUEL

“Samuel was running out of energy before the fights could conclude more often than not. This will help fix that.”
—Nivmett

MALICE AND VERDICT

  • Energy cost decreased from 50/55/60/65/70 to 40/45/50/55/60

SKYE

“Slight tuneup for Skye increasing her early-game power, especially while the energy cost reduction will help her maintain her signature playstyle” —Nivmett

FORWARD BARRAGE

  • Damage increased from 120/160/200/240/320 to 140/180/220/260/340

  • Health increased from 638-1992 to 638-2112

PETAL

TRAMPOLINE

  • Weapon amp reduced from 20% to 15%
  • Crystal amp reduced from 20% to 15%

REIM

“These changes will help push Reim toward his intended playstyle as a sustain crystal bruiser rather than some sort of crystal sustain, burst bruiser. In short, he will deal significantly less damage but generate more fortified health. In addition, the range change to Winter Spire will allow him to fight ranged heroes a bit easier in the early game.” —Nivmett

FROST GUARD

  • Crystal ratio on basic-attack reduced from 90% to 70%
  • Damage to fortified health increased from 18% to 25%

ITEMS BALANCE

bottom_bracket

AEGIS
“With the increased amount of crowd control, it’s only fair we increased the amount of time Reflex Block protected you.” —Nivmett

  • Duration increased from 1 to 1.5

ATLAS PAULDRON
“This allows bruisers and captains to have extra defense against weapon carries.” —Nivmett

  • Armor increased from 70 to 80

AFTERSHOCK
Aftershock was a bit too strong.” —Nivmett

  • Damage reduced from 15% to 14% max health

BREAKING POINT
“Breaking Point was stacking a bit too easily.” —Nivmett

  • Damage required per stack increased from 140 to 160

CLOCKWORK
“Slight tuneup to the energy items in the game, so that buying an energy item feels more impactful.” —Nivmett

  • Energy Regen increased from 7.5 to 10
  • Energy increased from 250 to 600

CRUCIBLE
“Crucible was decreasing in health when you combined its recipe. This will address that issue.” —Nivmett

  • Duration increased from 1 to 1.5
  • Health increased from 650 to 700

DRAGONHEART
“Dragonheart was a bit too efficient.” —Nivmett

  • Health decreased from 500 to 450

ECHO
“Echo has been a rockstar in the last few updates, and while we love the big plays that result with the double ults, we would like to see a little less of that while still giving you the option to echo non-ultimate abilities.” —Nivmett

  • Base cooldown decreased from 15 to 10
  • Echo multiplier cooldown increased from 115% to 150%
  • Energy regen increased from 4 to 6

EVE OF HARVEST
“See above.” —Nivmett

  • Energy regen increased from 5 to 7
  • Energy increased from 250 to 400

FROSTBURN
“Despite the Frostburn changes making the item very powerful, the decreased crystal and increased price made it a disadvantageous purchase. By bringing it to a lower price point, it is now attractive not only as a solid pickup but also serves crystal heroes as a kite-for-survival tool if they pick it up early enough.” —Nivmett

  • Price decreased from 2800 to 2600
  • Sell price decreased from 1400 to 1300

PIERCING SHARD
“This will allow for a more efficient early counter item for crystal carries.” —Nivmett

        • Shield pierce increased from 12% to 18%

“With the increased amount of crowd control, it’s only fair we increased the amount of time Reflex Block protected you.” —Nivmett

TORNADO TRIGGER
“Tornado Trigger was proving to be a bit too efficient for its cost. This change will tune down the damage of double Tornado Trigger.” —Nivmett

        • Bonus Crit damage reduced from 20% to 15%

SPELLFIRE
“While we know the direction we want Spellfire to go, the item didn’t become efficient enough until you have a substantial amount of crystal power. This change will allow it to be an earlier buy.”
—Nivmett

        • Passive burn damage changed from 100% of crystal power over 4 seconds to 15-50 (level 1-12) + 100% of crystal power over 4 seconds.
