New Overwatch Update Changes Mercy On PC, PS4, And Xbox One; Patch Notes Released

Apparently confident with a formula of a recent Overwatch PTR patch, Blizzard has rolled out a new refurbish for a live chronicle of a diversion on all platforms. It creates adjustments to a few areas of Overwatch, though serve change adjustments to Mercy are a primary focus.

Following Mercy’s renovate in September, Blizzard has continued to examination with additional changes to a healer. With this new patch, her Ultimate, Valkyrie, no longer affects a cooldown of Resurrection. Instead, Valkyrie provides a second assign of Resurrect, permitting her to potentially revitalise teammates behind to back. This assign usually lasts for a generation of Valkyrie, and a finish outcome is that she can use Resurrect fewer times than she could previously.

“This process creates Resurrect some-more stretchable when used with Valkyrie,” Blizzard explained in a patch notes. “For example, in a past if we wanted to revitalise dual teammates, we had to revitalise a initial target, afterwards activate Valkyrie (causing a Resurrect’s cooldown to reset), and afterwards revitalise a other target. With this change, we can now activate Valkyrie and fly in fast to revitalise both targets instantly. However, this still reduces a altogether series of Resurrects that Mercy can provide, given Valkyrie no longer reduces a cooldown.”

Mercy also sees her Guardian Angel ability tweaked. Using Resurrect doesn’t reset a cooldown on it now, though she can use a burst pivotal to fly past a teammate she’s targeting. The usually other change change involves Lucio, who now gets a 65% speed boost after finishing a wall ride. This is meant to understanding with a bug that slowed his ability to wall ride.

Finally, this patch provides an choice for PC players to set their standing to Online, Away, Busy, or Appear Offline. The latter choice will let we censor from that crony we can’t move yourself to delete, though Blizzard warns that this won’t stop we from potentially finale adult in a same compare together.

Overwatch’s Halloween Terror event is ongoing, permitting we to acquire a accumulation of new (and returning) Halloween-themed equipment and take partial in a Junkenstein’s Revenge event.
