7.04: More nerfs for Centaur Warrunner, KotL and Lifestealer
In what seems to be a continuation of the recent 7.03 patch, Valve deployed a new game update that brings more nerfs to the current meta heroes.
A week after the release of the Bladeform Legacy patch that got Monkey King into Captain’s Mode and brought significant adjustments to Centaur Warrunner, KotL, and Lifestealer, the new 7.04 targets the aforementioned heroes once again, plus a couple of others as well.
Centaur Warrunner’s Aghanim’s Scepter upgrade was nerfed in 7.03 from 60% damage reduction to 50%, but with the new patch his ultimate without the Scepter got also nerfed. Lifestealer, who got his base damage reduced by three a week ago, got more points cut, while Keeper of the Light, who suffered Mana Leak nerfs in 7.03, also got his base damage reduced from 43-57 to 43-50.
A few other heroes however, were blessed with important buffs: Razor, Death Prophet and Broodmother all got some more boosts in 7.04 after they got buffed last week as well.
