13 October 2021Call to Arms Patch 11As with the Weeping Repeater, Galatine Pairs were previously nerfed to mitigate the one-shot heavy meta. This has been reverted to make them a notable force in ZvZ again. Crescent Slash has not yet found widespread use since the recent rework. Since it had so many effect possibilities per stack, the additional value of each was set very low to balance this. This was probably too low, however, so the value of 2-stack and 3-stack effects has now been increased.
