6 May 2021Call to Arms Patch 4 (Balance Patch)Holy Staffs

Holy Explosion was very underused in the Holy Staff line and has been improved significantly. First, the ability now has a shorter cooldown and channel duration with more burst heal, guaranteeing more heal value even when the channel is interrupted. Also, the first Explosion now adds a resistance buff to allies, to help offset the increased risk of this E-ability’s positioning, which requires healers to stay close to allies instead of safe in the backline.

Celestial Sphere’s cast time was also reduced, as it was too easy to interrupt in 5v5 fights.

Holy Touch is very strong in 2v2 Hellgates. To give other Healing Staffs a better chance in this content, the tick interval was increased. It is now a bit slower to heal, requiring a greater time commitment from the healer.

Divine Intervention’s jump range was reduced, as it provided too much mobility even after various recent downgrades.
