DH 5.9 Patch Notes

Disney Heroes: Battle Mode Update 5.9

Welcome to the Disney Heroes: Battle Mode 5.9 Update! This release features Luz Noceda, plus a number of improvements and bug fixes.

Overview

  • New! Luz Noceda from Disney’s The Owl House
  • New! Chapters, Hero Levels, and Ranks
  • New! Official Discord Server
  • Improvements to the Battle Pass

Luz Noceda

Luz Noceda is a Back-Line “Control” Hero on the Red team. Luz Noceda will be available in Early Access starting February 6th.

New Debuff! - Confusion

Confusion is a new Debuff being added to the game that is exclusive to Luz Noceda! Confusion allows units to initiate Basic Attacks and Skills that require an animation but interrupts them, preventing them from finishing. Skills interrupted in this way will still consume Energy and go on Cooldown. Confusion does not work against Revives.

Skills

Plant Glyph
Passive: In addition to dealing damage, Luz’s basic attacks Freeze enemies for a few seconds.

Active: Luz uses a plant glyph to Snare the enemy with the most Skill Power. The plant deals Normal Damage and Snares the target for a duration. Luz then Heals herself and her allies for a percentage of the total damage dealt with the plant glyph.

+Normal Damage

Fire Glyph

Luz blasts all the enemies in front of her with a Fire Glyph that deals an initial amount of Normal Damage. Then for the next few seconds enemies are Sapped, Drained, and take Normal Damage per second.

Luz and her allies also gain stacks of Determination for each enemy hit with this skill.

+Normal Damage

Light Glyph

Luz uses a light glyph that deals Fantastic Damage to the closest enemies and Blinds the entire enemy team for a duration. After the Blind wears off the enemies become Confused for a few seconds.

+Fantastic Damage

Stop Right There!

Luz’s basic attacks now deal bonus Fantastic Damage and additionally Shatter enemies for a few seconds.

Fire Glyph now also Studies enemies for a few seconds.

+Fantastic Damage

Magic Is Everywhere

Plant Glyph now Steals Energy from the enemy hit. This enemy also has their Skill Power decreased by a percentage and is Confused for a few seconds.

Light Glyph now does bonus True Damage to the closest enemies, Limits all enemies, and decreases their Armor and Reality by a percent for a duration.

When Luz uses Light Glyph, she and her allies each gain stacks of Hardy.

+bonus True Damage to “Light Glyph”

Battle Pass Changes

We are excited to announce big changes happening to the Battle Pass starting immediately after the client update!

  • Start and End Times
    • The Battle Pass will no longer start at the beginning of each month. Instead, each season will run for 4 weeks, starting the same day as new chapter releases.
  • Improved Rewards
    • Both the free track and the Premium track will see improved values
    • In the free track, players will now be able to earn 2 rewards per node, with possible rewards including, but not limited to: diamond crates, stamina recharge consumables, gold, disk power, ultra xp drinks, a VIP pass, and new hero chips
    • In the Premium track, players who purchase this pass will be able to earn everything in the free track, as well as double the value of stamina consumables, badge crates, cosmetic crates, and new hero chips 5 days earlier than just having the free track
  • Early Access Trials
    • On top of improved rewards, players who purchase the Premium track will also unlock a limited-time Early Access Trial that spotlights the new hero!
    • This event will allow players to use a maxed out version of Luz to earn even more rewards on top of the Battle Pass!
  • Price Adjustment
    • To coincide with the added rewards and Premium access, we will be increasing the price of the Battle Pass from $14.99 to $19.99

Chapter Badge Recipe Changes

As part of our efforts to improve the game’s long-term health and maintain game performance, we saw that we needed to improve upon the badge recipes in game. We saw that due to the sheer amount of bits that needed to be pulled after each content release, it causes poor game performance leading to lag and game crashes.

  • Simplified Recipes
    • To combat this cycle of increasing lag, we have decided to simplify the recipes starting in Chapter 78
    • With this new system, you will only need to raid the most recent chapter for E+6 badges.
    • Simplifying the recipes decreases the total number of raids or battles needed to farm badges. Therefore the cost per run will increase significantly to compensate for this.
  • Affected Chapters
    • For the time being, as we continue to monitor server health, changes to badge crafting will only affect new chapters moving forward. Previous chapters will decrease in cost as usual (Chapter 77 will decrease to 12 stamina per battle, until it reaches a minimum of 6). Stamina costs for Chapter 78 and beyond will remain static. We plan that continuous increases to stamina gained for free will work as the catch-up mechanism there.
    • We will review how well this new system works against game performance, and may consider converting previous chapters as well, to further prevent game lag.
  • Elite Campaign Costs
    • This will also affect Elite Campaign Chapters moving forward. As a result of the increased cost per run, we will also improve the amount of Hero Chips and Red Skill Chips dropped to better reflect Red Skill Costs.
    • While it will not affect Hero Chip drops prior to Chapter 78, Red Skill Chips drop will increase across all chapters.
  • Collections
    • Due to the changes in the badge recipes, there will be 3 less Badge Avatars available in new Collections.

Improvements

  • We launched an Official Discord Server! Join us here: Official Disney Heroes: Battle Mode
  • Trial Event cards are no longer visible after all resets reach 0
  • Mid-season Patch adjustment
    • To ensure that Eda remains patchable, we will be making a mid-season change of adding The Owl House franchise to the Hercules and Unity franchise trials
  • Hero Balance Update
    • As we mentioned before, Hero Balance took a temporary step back as we focused on game performance
    • We’re still aware of the effects of power creep, especially related to the release of a new hero
    • With Luz’s release, we’re aiming at a midpoint where she is balanced in a relatively healthy state with her kit created to stay viable in the current meta
    • On top of that, we will also have a Super Charge event running alongside her release, to boost up her base stats for the duration of the next 2 Battle Passes

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a visual bug with mod upgrades capped at an incorrect number

And there it is. I guess paywalling some content will be the norm going forward.

Normally I comment more on patch notes, but I’m not really feeling up to it this time.

That would make sense because one learned to be a wizard and the other learned to be a witch

This is mildly interesting, let´s see how it goes.

So if I understand this correctly… the new chapter will cost like 10,000 stamina per run. Or even more.

At least some movement.

Going back a bit to this, it would probably be nice if all chapters were like this soon. Probably since you are going to do it from the upcoming chapter onward you could also do one or two chapters from the past?
Say, with Chapter 79 you would also simplify 77 and 76, with 80 you would simplify 75 and 74 and so on.

So early access for new heroes is Tuesday, day of release, while others unlock new hero from next contest which will be friday? Yes?

Don’t forget Hooty! He should probably be a duo character with Lilith!

So promoting the new hero to 6 stars was free for everyone and now that’s behind a paywall just because, how is that an improvement?

Yeah lol this game is getting better and worse at the same time. This game sure is complex with other Disney games it’s incredibly obvious to see that they don’t care (Sorcerer’s Arena and Mirrorverse) with Heroes it’s interesting though because it seems like they half care about the game and they half don’t care about the game.

They care… about the money

At least these guys put effort into the game they made. The micro transactions are definitely absurd, but it’s so much better when you see the great animation and care they put into the characters.

OMG, Luz finally!! Are we getting king in the future too? And the collector?

So, Luz is gonna be in the Battle Pass, per se? :confused:
