New Hero: Sapphire[edit | edit source]

Sapphire of the Crystal Caverns is an ancient being, the last of her race of elemental channelers who once served as arbiters in the conflicts between Man and Beast. Sapphire lived among the tribes and packs of The Savage Lands, where the bloodshed was greatest, for she knew that if she could help create a peace there, the rest of Newerth may follow. She called sworn enemies to meet within the Crystal Caverns, deep beneath the northern Sang-La Mountains, to share their grievances and find common ground.
The crystals served dual purposes -- their energies created a soothing environment that made anger and resentment seem far off, like thunderclouds passing on the horizon. But should hostilities actually break out, Sapphire could channel those energies into spells that would incapacitate, protect, and, if necessary, kill.
Her efforts, and those of the other arbiters, seemed to be going well. Then came The First Corruption, and the eras of The Bestial Shift, Tooth and Nail, the Beast Bone Years...more and more corruption and death. Sapphire's hopes for a lasting truce between steel and claw dwindled. Peace was a jest, a word and notion that mocked her. The only remaining glimmer of a chance lay with the Red Sand tribe and their Warchiefs, who wanted to live in harmony with the Beasts -- with all beings, truly -- if the world would only let them.
When they were massacred by Apex's soldiers, leaving only the Warchief and Sapphire remaining, she finally realized why her beloved, healing crystals also possessed the power to kill. She had learned the hard way that sometimes peace required the utter and complete destruction of those who opposed it.

Neutral Creeps - Numerical Balance Adjustments[edit | edit source]

Jungling at very early levels (~1-3) has been too easy for heroes that weren't initially intended to be able to jungle so early. Multiple goals will be met for doing a complete numerical overhaul of the jungle, namely:

  • Ensures that Primary Junglers still have a relatively easy time and place in the jungle at early levels, while Secondary Junglers have a much harder time doing so and likely won't be able to jungle effectively until they obtain the proper items and levels to do so.
  • Rebalances jungle difficulty so that each camp gives the proper amount of risk & reward relative to each other and with respect to each difficulty level.
  • Improves consistency for the Experience, Gold, Damage Output & Health for each camp.


  • When owned by the AI: Neutrals Creeps' attack damage against Heroes increased from 50% to 60%.
  • Gold Bounty average per camp has been changed:
    • Easy: ~72 Gold -> ~65 Gold
    • Medium: ~95 Gold -> ~92 Gold
    • Hard: ~102 Gold -> ~115 Gold
  • Gold Bounty average per camp has been adjusted and normalized slightly to be more consistent when comparing jungle camps of the same difficulty level.
    • Easy: ~65 Gold
    • Medium: ~92 Gold
    • Hard: ~115 Gold
    • Ancients: ~220 Gold
  • Gold Variance per jungle creep (the difference between the minimum gold and maximum gold you can obtain per creep) has been significantly tightened up to maintain consistency for junglers in the early game.
    • Easy: max Gold Variance is +/-3 per jungle creep.
    • Medium: max Gold Variance is +/-4 per jungle creep.
    • Hard: max Gold Variance is +/-5 per jungle creep.
    • Ancients: max Gold Variance is +/-15 per jungle creep.
  • Average Health per camp has been adjusted and normalized to further maintain consistency for junglers in the early game.
    • Easy: ~1400 Health
    • Medium: ~1800 Health
    • Hard: ~2000 Health -> ~2200 Health
    • Ancients: ~3600 Health
  • Average Damage per second (DPS) for each camp has been increased overall and made more consistent between camps to ensure that Primary Junglers are more reserved for the jungle compared to Secondary Junglers at early levels.
    • Easy: ~45 DPS -> ~55 DPS
    • Medium: ~60 DPS -> ~75 DPS
    • Hard: ~85 DPS -> ~100 DPS
    • Ancients: ~115 DPS -> ~145 DPS
  • Average Experience per camp has been slightly adjusted (remains largely unchanged from before, but is more consistent per camp now):
    • Easy: ~140 XP
    • Medium: ~185 XP
    • Hard: ~215 XP
    • Ancients: ~340 XP

Other Neutral Creep Changes[edit | edit source]

  • Neutral Creep consistency changes:
    • All neutrals with active abilities will now have Mana.
    • All neutrals without active abilities will no longer have Mana.
Pustula.jpg Pustula
  • Max Mana reduced from 400 to 100.
  • Pustula Kamikaze.jpg Kamikaze now costs 100 Mana.

Detailed Neutral Creep Changelog[edit | edit source]

  • Note that some Attack Damage values may appear to be too high/too low, but each creep has different Base Attack Times.
    • DPS calculations factor in Base Attack Time, so any Attack Damage adjustments were made based on DPS comparisons, not flat Attack Damage comparisons.

Sapphire[edit | edit source]

Picaroon Sapphire is in high demand across the high seas of Newerth. When the battle flags fly and the cannons are primed with powder and chain shot, most sailors put on a brave face but secretly pray for Picaroon and her expert skills in the art and craft of parley. When she serves as the negotiator between two captains, her goal is to allow each of the fools to sail away feeling like they've won they day. And if they do manage to sail away, they have -- for if Picaroon can't achieve an armistice, she'll most likely sink everyone involved just to make sure they don't hurt anyone else in the process.
Most battles have a long, slow fuse leading up to the actual confrontation -- a misunderstanding here, a perceived insult there, sanctions, threats, etc. -- and Kinetic Sapphire does everything she can during that slow burn to convince all sides involved that war is not the answer. Her compassion, empathy, and tales of the carnage she's seen through centuries of slaughter are sometimes enough to dissuade eager combatants from pulling the first sword or trigger. But when she cannot guide them toward peace, her vast experience in the ways of battle and death is on full display as she goes kinetic, instantly pivoting from mediation to lethal military action.

New Moon Warriors[edit | edit source]

Some believe Lunari the Moon Goddess has become desperate with the arrival of the Third Corruption and the crumbling of the heavens and hells -- and if she has, who could blame her? Still, many of her followers and even some outsiders question her choice of the naive schoolgirls from Adkarna as the New Moon Warriors, and it remains to be seen whether this selection is one of panic or divine brilliance.

When the fun-loving schoolgirl learned she had been chosen by Lunari to not only join the New Moon Warriors, but to become the heir to Moon Queen's throne, she couldn't stop giggling. Not because anything was funny; that's just how she reacted when she felt incredibly nervous and reluctant. When Lunari told her the first mission was to find and assemble the rest of the New Moon Warriors, things got a little better -- maybe some of her friends would come along? Then she had a sweet snack and began her journey towards possibly becoming the savior of Newerth.
A devout lover of books and learning, Mercury was at first quite resistant to Lunari's call to become the second New Moon Warrior. Time spent adventuring and fighting would mean less time studying quietly, though when her friend Moon pointed out that if they didn't save Newerth, all of the books would be consumed by corrupted flames anyway. Such a dilemma...but in the end, Mercury chose the devotion to her best friend and the survival of the planet over the comfort of a hushed library, though she did vow to learn everything she could about the enemy and use brains over brawn to defeat them whenever possible.

General[edit | edit source]

Deep within the Sang-La Mountains, in a valley almost entirely isolated from the outside world, a cluster of small villages lives in constant fear of the Yokai. These are creatures and phenomena that cannot be explained by the elders, the laws of nature, or any application of common sense. They simply should not exist -- yet they do. If the villagers were brave enough to venture beyond their sturdy, bamboo walls, they might discover a shadowed entrance tucked within a fold of the valley wall. An entrance with foreign, sinister runes carved around its mouth. And within that entrance, a cave, leading down, down, down, until the cold stone begins to grow warm. Then hot. Then blistering. It is a gateway to All Hells, and from there the Yokai scuttle forth from their corrupted dwellings to take the shape of nightmares.
Yokai Salomon is perhaps the most insidious of the Yokai because of her desire to make innocent villagers feel safe, protected, even amused, before revealing her true self. Disguised as a beautiful female merchant, Yokai Salomon roams among the villages of the Sang-La Mountains offering charms, bells, and lanterns to ward off the nasty ghosts who seek to infiltrate their homes and families. The lanterns are chchin obake, comical and harmless ghosts who like to surprise and entertain humans with their ridiculous expressions. This puts the villagers at ease, and just as they relax Yokai Salomon emerges from her lantern portal in full daemonic form to terrorize and slaughter the innocent.
