StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void - Patch 3.13.0[edit]

General[edit]

  • A new Commander, “Fenix”, has been added to Co-op Missions.
    • The main focus of playing Fenix is the direct control of his hero unit, which holds immense amounts of power when all three of his Purifier Suits are leveraged to their full potential.
    • Up to six different A.I. personalities from various Protoss heroes can be researched at the Purifier Conclave (once unlocked). Once a personality has been researched, it will automatically search for a standard unit to transfer into, and turn them into a game-changing hero unit.
    • Fenix is available as a standalone purchase for all players.
    • For more information, see our blog.
  • A new Co-op Mission, “Scythe of Amon”, has been added.
    • Scythe of Amon is roughly based on the Legacy of the Void Campaign, “The Host”.
    • Players must destroy all 5 Void Slivers within a limited amount of time.
    • For more information, see our blog.
  • A new feature, Rewind, allows a game to be instantly converted to a replay.
    • A new “Rewind” button will appear on the Victory or Defeat dialogue of a game.
    • Selecting “Rewind” will immediately convert the game into a fully loaded replay. You can also “Quit and Rewind” during a match through the in-game menu.
    • The Rewind feature is available in all modes that support replays normally, including Multiplayer, Arcade, and Co-op Missions.
    • For more information, see our blog.
  • Replays have been enabled for all Co-op Missions.
  • 2017 Ladder Season 2 map pool has been added.
  • A new Fenix Announcer has been added to the Collection for standalone purchase.
  • A new “Fenix Master Bundle” is available from the Featured section of the Collection.

Co-op Missions[edit]

General[edit]

  • Team Colors
    • Alliance Color Mode option is now available in Co-op Missions.
  • All Zerg
    • Queens
      • Increased anti-air range to 8 from 7.
Developer Comments: We are adopting a multiplayer change we made from a while ago that helps Zerg Queens against air units. This should give the Queens a bit more help in trying to avoid those Liberators attacks.
  • Nydus Worms
    • Bug Fix: should now function properly if your ally with Nydus Worms leaves the game.

Commanders[edit]

  • Abathur
Developer Comments: There has been ongoing discussion about Abathur among the community, specifically around Abathur's early game power, early anti-air capability, and mastery categories. There were many good suggestions and we've incorporated some of them into this patch. We don't want to make too many changes at once, so we will continue to monitor Abathur's performance and analyze the effects of these changes before we can evaluate if any additional changes are needed. Thanks everyone!
  • Ravager
    • Cooldown reduced to 10 seconds from 15 seconds.
Developer Comments: A lower cooldown should make Ravagers a more reliable source of damage, and a better counter to enemy air units.
  • Parasitic Bomb
    • Can now target heroic units.
  • Vile Roach
    • Range now matches a standard Roach range of 4 (down from 5).
Developer Comments: This allows Queens to safely stand behind Roaches during combat.
  • Brutalisk
    • Ranged weapon upgrades from the Evolution Chamber also now apply to Brutalize (ground attack) as well.
    • Ferocious Spew (air attack) now gains +5 per weapon upgrade level (up from +4).
    • Bug Fix: his attack was not properly calculating damage against enemy armor values.
  • Swarm Queen
    • Bug Fix: build Icon is now using the correct Queen.
  • Toxic Nest
    • Virulent Nests upgrade at level 3 now also applies a debuff that slows enemy attack and movement speeds by 75% (20% for heroic units) for 5 seconds.
  • Mastery
    • Toxic Nest Maximum Charges mastery now also reduces cooldown on charges as well (1% per point).
Developer Comments: Along with the Virulent Nest change, this mastery should make a toxic nest strategy more viable.
  • Alarak
    • Reordered Mastery upgrade order back to a similar set up that it was before.
Developer Comments: The mastery changes we made in a previous patch was seen as a nerf to his mech build. This was not the intention so we've restore the previous options in the first category back. We will continue to evaluate if any additional changes are needed.
  • Stukov
    • Apocalisk now properly gains bonus move speed while on creep.
  • Zagara
    • Initial birth time reduced from 5 mins to 4 mins.
Developer Comments: Although Zagara did not have any issues early on with defense or breaking rocks, we are reducing the initial birth time for Zaraga to be in line with the other Commanders with hero units.
