Welcome the better Brewmaster
New, enhanced Chen is available at the PTR. He became stronger, much fatter and still can destroy Forts better than specialists, due to his ability to tank towers while drinking his brew. But will these changes go on Live servers?
At the first level, we suggested to choose one option of basics Chens abilities. Each of these options is needed in different situations.
We need protection from the Zagara, Jaina or any other burst? Grounding brew now offers 30% protection from spells instead of 25%.
Need a waveclear at the Sanctuary or Braxis? Accumulation Flame allows to increase the power of fire, and upon completion of the quest Chen will start to get resistance for each of the affected hero.
Almost the same as the Regeneration Master, only this time upon completion the quest, your shield strength will be 50% of obtained during drinking.
By activating this ability, Chen will start avoid all the auto attacks of the enemy within 2 seconds.
Now it no longer requires the brew and deals 100% more damage if you have shield on you. This is twice better than it was before! Now you can Crit someone in the face, then start drinking and after that crit again. The lack of cost of this spell will synergy perfectly with Levels 7 ability Brewmasters Harmony.
Rising of fire
They just increase damage from this ability from 30 to 50, and this will give a huge advantage in team fights where every amount of damage can be lethal.
This is a special version of the Empowered Healing accessible only by Chen. Bonus heal can be increased to 60% if you receive healing while drinking. Now, no one can kill a panda if he drink under Lt. Morales healing ray.
Now our brew will momently apply a shield on us, that will absorb 697 damage and lasts only 1 second. Super usefull skill in team fight, will allow us to absorb even more damage then before!
Reduces magic damage done by your enemies by 25% for 3 seconds. It looks like a small spell shield that will protect the rest of my team, not just me. Wait, but it is generally legitimate?
Vulnerable point received an upgrade. What upgrade? Now, you can take it by 3 level earlier! Now the target is slowed down by 40% if you just use a skill, and by 80% if you use it on the targets that drenched with your brew.
Flying leap increases the range of the attack by 20%, which will be usefull in the game against range heroes, also these 20% may be salutary in the escape.
Another Round reduces the cooldown of your abilities for 3 seconds after using Barrel Strike. Also (probably a bug) your barrel becomes huge. You can hit the entire enemy team immediately.
Now it will give an additional speed and damage reduce to your barrel, and now you can roll under towers. Cool.
Increase health pool of your spirits by 100%, and they will have additional abilities. Storm makes you unstopable, Earth get faster recharge of Leap, and Fire starts to strike faster.
Make Chen an unstopable and reduce cc time of next spell by 75% and refresh your shield recharge immediately.
Stormstout Secret Recipe
Now you will heal yourself by 1.5% of your max health with every strike.
