1.0b - A New(er) Frontier | May 26, 2018


Welcome to the 1.0b Update!

With Launch comes some changes to our Update Cycle.

Paladins’ major Content Updates will now be bigger and better than ever before. Content Updates will include new Champions, Events, or other large features in every single update. These major Content Updates will occur every 6 weeks.

In between these updates, Paladins will release smaller updates that focus on balance, polish, and fixing outstanding bugs — like this release.

Our 1.0b Patch introduces the awaited Battle Pass Challenges, new loading screen splash art, skins from another galaxy, Front Line focused balance, and a plethora of bug fixes.

Have fun in 1.0b, Champions!

Champion Ash Icon.png Ash

"Developer Commentary: Assert Dominance can be great at buying time for an objective fight, or until a healer can get to you, but fees lackluster in most situations. These changes are aimed at making her ultimate feel more impactful when used, even if it’s not the perfect situation. The Range increase on Slug Shot gives Ash a true long range option."

  • Ability Assert Dominance.png Assert Dominance
  • Increased Damage 350 → 600
  • Increased Max Travel Distance
  • Ability Shoulder Bash.png Shoulder Bash
  • Reduced Cooldown 17s → 15s
  • Talents
  • Slug Shot
  • Increased Range Increase 50% → 100%

Champion Buck Icon.png Buck

  • Cards
  • Concussion
  • Reduced Scaling {1.5|1.5}s → {1|1}s

Champion Fernando Icon.png Fernando

"Developer Commentary: Safe Travels effectiveness was potent enough to be an ability itself. We have brought down the shield strength and duration to be more in line with other Front Line Cards."

  • Cards
  • Safe Travel
  • Reduced Shield Scaling {250|250} → {150|150}
  • Reduced Shield Duration 5s → 3s
  • Last Stand
  • Reduced Health Threshold 50% → 40%

Champion Inara Icon.png Inara

"Developer Commentary: In coordinated play, the Bonus Healing Received from Earthen Guard combined with her assortment of defensive tactics makes her incredibly hard to take down. We’ve reduced the innate effectiveness of the bonus healing so Inara is not as oppressive early on (before players can purchase higher levels of Cauterize)."

  • Ability Earthen Guard.png Earthen Guard
  • Reduced Increased Healing 60% → 40%
  • Cards
  • Stone Bulwark
  • Reduced Heal {30|30} → {25|25}

Champion Khan Icon.png Khan

"Developer Commentary: After analyzing Khan’s release, we have made numerous changes to bring him more in line with other Front Lines. Commander’s Grab acts as Khan’s only non-ultimate damaging ability, and his only movement ability. The increased damage will now make hitting this ability feel more rewarding for the opportunity cost of using it. Khan aims to be in the midst of Battle – However, despite having a healing based ability, Khan’s self healing is either equal or only slightly above other Front Lines. We’ve increased the effectiveness of Battle Shout to encourage this play style."

  • Ability Battle Shout.png Battle Shout
  • Increase Heal 800 → 1,000
  • Ability Overpower.png Overpower
  • Increase Damage 500 → 600
  • Increase Charge Rate
  • Ability Commander's Grab.png Commander's Grab
  • Increase Damage 400 → 600
  • Cards
  • Vigorous Defense
  • Increase HPS Scaling {10|10} → {25|25}
  • Hulking Strength
  • Increase Scaling {0.5|0.5} → {0.6|0.6}
  • Close and Personal
  • Increase Damage Reduction Scaling {6%|6%} → {8%|8%}
  • Reduced Duration 3s → 2s

Champion Kinessa Icon.png Kinessa

  • Ability Sniper Mode.png Sniper Mode
