The first thing they addressed is the Neutral Item drops. First is they have reduced the percentage of drops, then now Neutral drops will be capped to three times dropped per tier as they removed the end time for when Neutral Tier items drop.
After that, they made adjustments on 20 of the introduced Neutral drops. This includes some Tier adjustments for items such as Clumsy Net and Helm of the Undying. Some Neutral drops have also been tweaked in terms of cooldown and effects given. A notable thing is that they have removed Tome od Aghanim- an item that gives the user Aghanims effects for five minutes.
The last part of the update is the hero adjustments. For Snapfire, they have increased her armor and strength gain as well as buffing her skills Firesnap Cookie, Lil Shredder, and Mortimer’s Kisses.
Void Spirit received additional strength gain and buffs to the cast point and range of his Astral Step.
Other updated heroes are Anti-mage’s Mana Break (nerfed) ; Crystal Maiden’s Arcane Aura (nerfed) ; Drow Ranger’s Multishot (buffed) and Marksmanship (buffed) ; Lone Druid’s Spirit Bear (buffed) ; Morphling’s Intelligence, Base Strength, and Attribute Shift (buffed) ; Outworld Devourer’s Strength, Intelligence, and Sanity’s Eclipse (buffed); Razor’s Eye of the Storm (nerfed); Undying’s Flesh Golem (buffed; Ursa’s Armor is reduced by 1, then a nerf on Earthshock and Enrage; lastly is Base Agility reduction for Vengeful Spirit and a buff on Vengeance Aura. Morphling, Vengeful, and Lone Druid also has some Talent adjustments.
