    = New Moon Warriors =

    + Some believe Lunari the Moon Goddess has become desperate with the arrival of the Third Corruption and the crumbling of the heavens and hells -- and if she has, who could blame her? Still, many of her followers and even some outsiders question her choice of the naive schoolgirls from Adkarna as the New Moon Warriors, and it remains to be seen whether this selection is one of panic or divine brilliance.

    New Moon Corrupted Disciple Avatar: Europa
    - Europa has always been totally self-sufficient, handling everything that needs to get done by herself, whether it's studying, shopping, cooking, cleaning, home renovations, or athletic training. Unfortunately for just about everyone except for her, she attacks each one of these tasks with a relentless aggression that often leaves a wake of destruction, hurt feelings, and school reprimands. When Moon and Lunari shared the news that she had been chosen for the New Moon Warriors, Europa was overjoyed at the idea of using her incredible strength and new abilities to combat evil. She was slightly less enthusiastic, however, about this whole concept of a "team"...

    New Moon Forsaken Archer Avatar: Mars
    - Moon has always worried about her slightly aloof (and occasionally hotheaded) friend Mars, who bristles against the male-dominated warrior training at their private Adkarna school. She's a better rider than any boy at the academy, and her skill with a bow surpassed the instructor's years ago. It was a thrill for Mars when Lunari chose her to fight alongside Moon and the others, for she finally had the opportunity to prove how powerful she -- and all women -- can be. This was also a relief for Moon, who no longer had to fret about one of her best friends getting expelled for fighting with boys; now she only had to worry about her dying in battle against the Hellbourne.

    New Thunderbringer Avatar: Raijin
    - When the children of the Sang-La Mountains first hear the quiet rumbles rolling in from a distant valley, they cannot help shivering, even in the sweltering heat and humidity of summer. This sound means that Raijin, the God of Thunder, the ancient, daemonic spirit who has long haunted this land, is beating his drums in preparation to unleash his fury upon the helpless, cowering mortals. As with any storm, the best chance for survival is to shutter the doors and windows, lash everything down, and hope Raijin doesn't focus his lethal lightning upon you and yours.

    == Bug Fixes & Optimizations ==

    = General =

    - Direct Pathing now works properly with trees!* i.e. when a tree is in your hero's line of travel while Direct Pathing is enabled, the hero will ignore the tree's presence and will path straight into it and push up against the tree, instead of going around it.

    = Heroes =

    Andromeda- Void Rip now applies a 50ms Mini-Stun.
    * This prevents odd situations where an enemy hero's cast action time is uninterrupted & will continue the casting even after swapping (e.g. Tempest's Elemental Void being cast from over 1000 units away).

    Bramble- Enhanced Shrubbery's trail will no longer block neutral camps from spawning.

    Master of Arms- Overcharged Shot is now blocked properly by Moraxus' Arcane Shield if the projectile is in midair when Arcane Shield is cast.
    - Attack Speed bonus from Master's Call now applies properly for all of Master of Arms' alternate avatars.

    Nitro- Ballistic's passive range indicator will now show on Nitro at the appropriate times, and will not show to the enemy team in rare circumstances.

    Pearl- Bubble Pop can no longer be activated while Immobilized or Restrained.

    Rhapsody- Disco Inferno no longer blocks neutral camps from spawning.

    Salomon- Wish for Wealth's bonuses for illusions of Salomon will no longer be active when owned by a hero other than Salomon (e.g. Circe).
    - Tooltip on Wish for Revenge no longer erroneously states that he gains bonus Movement Speed.

    Sapphire- Enemy gadgets will now properly damage Unstable Shard.
    - Quickshield no longer plays a sound when damaged by Damage-over-Time (DoT) effects.
    - Fixed a bug which caused illusions to deal increased damage when attacking the Unstable Shard.

    Shellshock- Fireflies no longer block neutral camps from spawning.

    Thunderbringer- Reveal gadgets spawned from some of his skills will no longer block neutrals from spawning.
    - Thunder Storm (the alternate Staff of the Master active skill) audio has been improved.

    Sir Benzington
    Now has the proper aggro range when Sir Benzington has Staff of the Master.

    = Items =

    Bound Eye- Will now drop properly if the killer is invulnerable at the time of your death.

    Doom Bringer- Will now drop properly if the killer is invulnerable at the time of your death.

    Master's Legacy- Fixed to properly remove certain Staff of the Master effects from boosted allies when the item is dropped.

    Ward of Revelation- Initial reveal radius increased by 5 to remedy corner-case scenarios where the initial reveal mechanic does not reveal enemy Wards (but the persistent reveal radius does reveal enemy Wards once you have proper vision of them).

    = Mid Wars =

    Zorgath- Fixed a bug with Zorgath's first ability which didn't properly count it as a Damage over Time (DOT) effect.
    * This prevents abilities like Cthulhuphant's Maddening Revenge triggering incorrectly.
    - Attack agaist Reckless Horseman while inside the pit will no longer miss.
