Disney Heroes: Battle Mode Update 1.7.2

Welcome to the Disney Heroes: Battle Mode 1.7.2 Update! This release features new character, Gaston, a significant refresh for Captain Jack Sparrow, plus a number of bug fixes.

Overview

  • Gaston from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast joins the battle!
  • Captain Jack Sparrow receives a Hero Refresh!

Gaston

Gaston is a back-line control character. He will be available in Diamond Crates on Servers 1-12.

Skills


Wrestling Match
Gaston jumps into the middle of a group of enemies, damaging and stunning them. Gaston then stays in melee range and fights with his fists for the rest of the wave.


Burly and Brawny
Gaston rips open his shirt, stunning or charming nearby enemies.


Five Dozen Eggs
Once per battle, when Gaston reaches 0 HP, he gulps down several eggs to heal himself and become invincible for a short time.


King Pin
Gaston’s stuns last longer if the target is below a certain health percentage.

Hero Refresh

In past updates, we have occasionally buffed older heroes to make them more relevant in the current metagame. For 1.7.2, we’re trying a new twist on this idea called a “Hero Refresh.”

For a Hero Refresh, we’ll choose one hero that we feel is underpowered or underutilized in the game and focus on really revamping their kit. This can include adjustments to hero stats, skills, and even memory disks.

In addition, we will also select a few heroes who compliment the main hero and make smaller adjustments to them. The goal being to ensure the refreshed hero has the team support needed to be a member of fun and useful lineups.

The focus of our first Hero Refresh is none other than Captain Jack Sparrow! The supporting heroes are Captain Hector Barbossa, Rex, and Nick Wilde.

Captain Jack Sparrow

dialogue_jack_sparrow
Captain Jack Sparrow has been with Disney Heroes: Battle Mode a while now and we thought it was high time for him to become more competitive in PvP. Captain Jack is a hard hitting frontline hero with a powerful team buff, but is often KO’ed before he really gets to shine. The following changes help him stick around longer in combat, while also honing both his damage dealing and team buffing skills.

Base Stats

  • +30% Max HP
  • +60% Basic Damage
  • +20% Skill Power

Skills

jack_sparrow_skill1
Avast!
Jack calls his ship to fire its cannons at enemies. His ship shoots 10 cannonballs doing damage with each cannonball.

  • +65% damage
  • +2 Cannonballs fired

jack_sparrow_skill2
Acting Dodgy
Jack dodges a melee attack and counter attacks dealing damage. Jack can only dodge a melee attack once every 7 seconds.

  • +25% damage
  • Cooldown lowered from 7 to 6 seconds

jack_sparrow_skill3
Pirate Code
When Jack’s first ally is KO’d, Jack salutes his fallen comrade, gaining basic damage for the remainder of the wave. This can only be triggered once per wave.

  • +50% basic damage

jack_sparrow_skill4
Hearty Crew
Jack Sparrow grants his allies Basic Damage.

  • “Hearty Crew” now also scales off Jack’s skill power, amounting to a ~50% increase at max level in addition to a 15% increase to the level scaling

Captain Jack Sparrow’s Memory Disks

"Pirated Music" from Hector Barbossa

  • Increased Max HP per Memory Disk level
  • Increased HP healed by “Avast!” per star level
    • Was 9% HP healed per star level
  • Decreased cooldown for “Acting Dodgy” per star level

Supporting Heroes

Captain Hector Barbossa
barbossa
Barbossa’s Study abilities - via his “Hold Court” memory disk and “Scan the Horizon” skill - make him a good compliment to Captain Jack Sparrow. Not to mention him being a fellow pirate!

Base Stats

  • +55% Max HP
  • +30% Basic Damage
  • +30% Skill power
  • “Scan the Horizon” study duration increased from 6 second to 9 seconds

"Hold Court" Memory Disk (Tia Dalma)

  • Enemies are studied for an increased duration at the beginning of combat per star level

Rex
rex
As a seriously tanky Tank with a memory disk that reduces damage to Damage heroes, Rex is the perfect hero with whom to pair Captain Jack Sparrow for maximum survivability.

Base Stats

  • +65% Max HP
  • +25% Basic Damage
  • +40% Skill power
  • “Mighty Roar” silence duration increased from 4 seconds to 6 seconds

Nick Wilde
nick
Another way to increase Captain Jack Sparrow’s survivability is to pair him with Nick Wilde while using Nick’s “Street Art Shuffle” memory disk. This disk will provide Captain Jack Sparrow with a beefy shield at the beginning of each wave of combat.

Base Stats

  • +15% Max HP
  • +30% Basic Damage
  • +10% Skill power

"Street Art Shuffle" from Judy Hopps

  • Increased Max HP per memory disk level

1-7-2 Patch Feedback
#3

No one fights like Gaston!


#4

@Polaris

As a result of server 14 moving to level 80 cap, does this mean they now get 6 star heroes too?

It’s not mentioned in patch, but I believe 80 cap was pre requisite of 6 star heroes.


#5

You are correct - 6th star begins at TL 80. I can add that in.


#6

@Polaris The notes don’t say one way or the other - is Invasion coming to other servers?


#7

Not yet. The team is making some changes based on the server 1 feedback. We’ll roll that out, and see how it does. When Invasion is added to other servers, we’ll announce it!


#8

Good update Polaris and thanks for updating older heroes ^^.

Interesting with Gaston as well and hope a lot of people will like him :-).


#9

@polaris When when when :wink: very happy with the hero refreshes, thank you!


#10

We’re currently planning for Tuesday (pending app store approvals).


#11

Thanks, really looking forward to this.


#12

Good update (i made a topic suggesting to boost old heroes and i am very happy that is happening for real)

But still… since november when scar was realesed vip crates got no new heroes… so now its just a good supply crate while the idea was to gave to vip11+ early access to new heroes… really disappointed by that.


#13

Actually a good update for once.


#14

Hey @Polaris I think its time for server merges to happen for servers with same lvl caps don’t you think. Many servers are having less players each day. Or if no server merge available then I think they should add a new server Vs server guild war mode. So there can be at least more variety.


#15

To be honest @polaris I agree that Jack is weak but Yax is still the biggest weakness. Is he gonn have his own refresh or is it intended for him to be used less frequently as one progresses through the game?

Yay! Now I can get Darkwing Duck is he gonna have his glitch fixed?

Also one last thing. Abbout Gaston… He shows his chest…I cringed for that but ok XD so yah pretty good.


#16

How would a server vs server guild war even work?


#17

Like a tournament. Depending on your mmr on guild wars. There will be a separate game mode where the guild from each server with the similar MMR Vs each other for a tournament. Or they could do elimination mode and bring the guilds ranked in the top 5 of each server in a final battle to see which guild is gonna be ranked the best out of the same lvl cap servers.


#18

Stay on topic - would be great to continue your suggestions in another thread. Thanks!


#19

Can we have Dalma for Guild Crate Hero next?


#20

IMPORTANT - Urgent Need of Server Merge sorry if I’m off topic but wanted my suggestion to be aware.


#21

Not Tia Dalma lol. Most people have her 6*. I rather have a new hero in guild crate.
