Heroes of the Storm hotfixes for May 18

There’s a new round of Heroes of the Storm hotfixes to rectify a couple of bugs that made it through in the recent patch on May 12th. Abathur sees a fix that should affect his viability in a positive way: his Symbiote abilities no longer retain cooldowns when switching Symbiote targets. On the negative side, Li Li’s Wind Serpent’s heals on hit from the talent Mending Serpent no longer have synergy with the Lightning Serpent talent, which causes Wind Serpent attacks to hit additional targets. It was fun while it lasted, but was pretty overpowered.

Here’s a list of the rest of the hotfixes. You can also click here to view them on the Heroes of the Storm forums.
