|Version 21.000.1||21 November 2022||Beyond the Veil Update||With Arcane Staffs so strong in Crystal League, and Enigma Blade often outshining other W abilities, Flicker’s cooldown has been increased to dampen this ability somewhat. This will add depth to the ability, as casters can choose whether to only use Enigma Blade, or to also gain extra mobility at the cost of higher cooldown. To make Frazzle more useful, it again has "damage taken increase" effect on targets, independent of resistances. This allows for more unique damage-amplifying roles.
|Version 20.070.1||5 October 2022||Into the Fray Patch 7||Arcane Staffs
The recent Arcane Staff rework made them very popular, but also created a few issues. Firstly, their damage output in 5v5 was too high, so to tone this down consecutive jumps of Chain Missile now deal significantly less damage. This also offers more counter play through body-blocking the projectile to reduce damage to the backline. Its damage in 1v1 is unchanged. Enigma Blade provided a little too much value for a W-slot ability, so its damage output has been toned down a bit. Great Arcane provides a lot of utility in ZvZ and is especially strong as a defensive weapon. The main intended counter to this is to bait the Time Freeze out before committing fully to an attack - however, the short invulnerability window allowed Time Freeze to be chained quite frequently in a large-scale fight. To make a baited Time Freeze more impactful, players are now invulnerable to a further Time Freeze for a significantly longer time. Finally, Dark Sphere’s recent buffs made it much more reliable, but this reliability made its slow too oppressive. The strength of its slow has now been reduced accordingly.
