Heroes of the Storm patch now live with Li Li, Medivh, and Nova buffs

The patch went live on Feb. 6.

Heroes of the Storm just received an update! If you're a fan of Li Li, Medivh, or Nova, then you'll be glad to hear that they all still received buffs even after the PTR update back in January 2023. This means there are some changes between the PTR and the live Heroes of the Storm patch notes. Here are the details!

Heroes of the Storm buffs Li Li, Medivh, and Nova

Although Li Li, Medivh, and Nova received slight stat decreases compared to their PTR counterparts, they still received buffs in the live game. While Li Li can heal more with her ultimate now, Medivh's increased Mage Armor means more portals of death shenanigans. As for Nova, she can get more mana regeneration while using Anti-Armor Shells to counter enemy Artanis and Garrosh players.
