Hero Changes
I. Akos Hu
1. Jumping and double jumping while using [Furious Frenzy] and [Frantic Frenzy: Grab] Supers become Tiger Leap. You no longer need to run to perform a Tiger Leap. The maximum height of Tiger Leap has also been increased.
2. Improved Tiger Leap moves.
3. Changed the horizontal strike in the air during the Tiger Leap. He can now interrupt the attacks of enemies with the “Tiger Leap” status
4. Increased the area of ​​effect of 3 consecutive hits with Tiger Rage when Akos uses [Furious Frenzy] Super.
5. Jumping with purple focus no longer activates the stone form of the two-handed sword.
//Design Note: Prior to these changes, Akos needed to enter a running state to perform Tiger Leap, and double jumping canceled it. This led to the fact that the actions of Akos Hu in battle were significantly limited. We want him to have no such restrictions, and so that he can show the true power of the Rebel Claw. In the future, we will continue to monitor Akos and the gaming experience associated with him.

II. Justina Gu
1. [Frost Wrath] and [Frost Wrath: Blizzard] duration increased from 20s to 20s. up to 30 s.

III. Wu Chen
1. The special effect of successfully teleporting after using [Tai Chi Split] has been increased in size.
//Design Note: Wu Chen’s Super [Tai Chi Split] now allows his team to make more mistakes without consequences, which is quite important in high-ranked matches. Because of this, the fight slows down, and the fights stretch out in time. Now, when Wu Chen uses [Tai Chi Split] on level ground, the opponents will be able to notice the teleportation more easily, and this will speed up the pace of the battle.

IV. Walda Tsui
