Even with Overwatch kicking off its Open Beta this week, one of the game’s already iconic characters has already been shooting her way through Nexus. Recognizing Tracer is a bit overpowered, Blizzard has focused the most recent Heroes of the Storm patch on bringing her back under control.

“As we’re sure many of you have noticed, Tracer is performing just a little too well on all fronts. While we are excited to bring her to the Nexus, we understand that in the right hands, she can be an absolute terror to the enemy team,” Blizzard explains.

“We’ll continue to keep a close eye on her, as we believe she is similar to Illidan, where the right place from a balance perspective is more narrow than most of our other Heroes.”

Check out the full list of changes coming to the Heroes of the Storm version of the Tracer:

  • Health decreased from 1270 (+4% per level) to 1206 (+4% per level).
  • Health Regeneration decreased from 5.25 (+4% per level) to approximately 5.02 (+4% per level) Health per second.
  • Basic Attack damage reduced from 29 (+4% per level) to 27 (+4% per level).
  • Focus Fire (Talent)
  • Final shot damage bonus increased from 30% to 35% of the total magazine’s damage.
  • Locked and Loaded (Talent)
  • Damage bonus increased from 35% to 40%.
  • Melee (W)
    • Pulse Strike (Talent)
      • Pulse Bomb charge bonus increased from 15% to 20%.
  • Recall (E)
    • Cooldown increased from 24 to 26 seconds.
    • Slipstream (Talent)
      • Cooldown reduction decreased from 4 to 2 seconds.
