8 June 2022Into the Fray UpdateGlaive has consistently been very strong in 5v5 Crystal League, due to its threatening kidnap potential and high sustain damage. To make it less oppressive, the Fling distance has been adjusted and the cooldown of Harpoon increased. This change on the Q and W abilities doesn't affect other spear lines' base gameplay as much as other changes would (e.g. reducing Q damage).
  • Harpoon (all Spears):
    • Cooldown: 15s → 20s
  • Fling (Glaive):
    • Pull Distance: 10m → 7m

21 September 2021Call to Arms Patch 10Glaive has been a very strong frontline melee DPS in the 5v5 Crystal League for some time.

    • Cooldown: 15s → 20s
