Gravekeeper.jpg Gravekeeper
  • Gravekeeper Defiling Touch.jpg Defiling Touch's second mode changed from "Off" to "Heroes".
    • If Defiling Touch's current mode is set to "Heroes", Defiling Touch will launch a corpse only when attacking an enemy hero.
Soulstealer.jpg Soulstealer
  • Soulstealer Soul Burst.jpg Soul Burst
    • Starting radius increased from {50 to 200}.
    • Affector lifetime decreased from {1000ms to 950ms}.
    • Soul Burst's affector shape changed from an expanding circle to an expanding ring.
      • This allows enemy heroes to not be affected by Soul Burst if they enter its "dead zone" while Soul Burst's hitboxes are still active (i.e. enemy heroes can blink on top of Soulstealer ~0.7 seconds after Soul Burst is cast and not be affected by the skill).

HoN Codex: The Ascension[edit | edit source]

The Ascension has arrived! The benevolent alien entities known as Epicenters have followed Parallax and the Artificers across the galaxies, trying to stop their path of destruction. Newerth is the only planet with soldiers strong enough to offer resistance to the planet-ripping Fulcrums and their insidious dark matter, and the Epicenters have finally caught up to the Artificers. Now that they have, they will augment the warriors of Newerth with the power of light and creation to defeat Parallax and his nefarious kin once and for all.

Ophelia's Apex Horde[edit | edit source]

New Ophelia’s Apexes Set Effect + If you own the entire Apex avatar set, each avatar gains a ring of human bones tied together with wild vines!

The Inner Sea Testudos have protected the precious water source against invasion for millennia, and when Ophelia asked them to join her in the fight against Man, their alpha warrior stepped forward. His unorthodox tactics and primal magic quickly moved him into her inner circle of Apexes, where he vows to remain until all of Ophelia’s enemies are buried. No matter what – or who – they are.
The Predators could barely be contained in the early days of the war against the Legion, often causing as many casualties among their own as they did the enemy. The Beast Horde was on the brink of turning on their vicious kin and driving them into extinction when the Apex Predator took control of the entire pack and instilled a seething restraint – no one would call it discipline or control – that turned the Predators into a truly terrible weapon for Ophelia. When Apex offered his pack the scent of their new enemy the Predators changed from hunting humans to daemons without missing a step. That said, they still enjoy making humans nervous. It’s instinct.
Apex Tundra was the alpha ape shaman of his domain before Maliken Grimm crossed the Iron Mountains into the Frost Fields, and when the war with man could no longer be avoided he carried his bone-shattering cold magic to the southern lands. His devotion to Ophelia only increased when the Second Corruption tore Newerth apart, and he will follow his queen into every corner of hell to bring peace back to her realms.

Bug Fixes & Optimizations[edit | edit source]

General[edit | edit source]

  • Sound playback and recording devices will now auto-detect & auto-refresh properly without requiring the user to exit the HoN Client.
  • Fixed a crash when switching sound playback drivers.
  • Fixed an incredibly rare exploit where players on the opposite team can unpause the game earlier than intended.
  • Kongor.jpg Kongor now has a spawn effect.
  • The shoutcaster's voice volume is now also controlled by the "Voice Chat Volume" setting in Options.

Forests of Caldavar

  • The Wild Hunter camps now properly consists of 1 Wild Hunter.jpg Wild Hunter and 1 Wild Hunter.jpg Stealth Hunter (instead of 2 Wild Hunters) for the HoNiversary version of the map.
  • Neutral camps now properly have their spawn-check zones visually indicated with grass on the HoNiversary version of the map.

Heroes[edit | edit source]

Arachna.jpg Arachna
  • Arachna Spider Sting.jpg Spiderling model is now visible again.
  • Spiderling's attack impact sounds now play properly again.
Balphagore.jpg Balphagore
  • Balphagore Hell on Newerth.jpg Hell on Newerth's visuals now play at a faster speed to match the actual expansion speed of its affector.
  • Balphagore Hell on Newerth.jpg Hell on Newerth's affector shape changed from an expanding ring to an expanding circle.
    • The affector's lifetime is a short 700ms, so an expanding circle is more appropriate than an expanding ring.
Draconis.jpg Draconis
Defiler.jpg Defiler
  • Defiler Unholy Expulsion.jpg Unholy Expulsion's radius tooltip value was updated to the correct value (850).
Drunken Master.jpg Drunken Master
  • Impact interval for the consumption of Drunken Master Magic Brew.jpg Drink charges changed from {700/420/300/233ms to 525/350/262/210ms}.
    • This allows Drunken Master to fully consume his Drink charges from its max charge count, rather than leaving it at 1 charge after a full channel duration.
