HeroesoftheStorm 8 - Abilities, talents, and traits how their number have changed

With each coming patch, the power level of some abilities have shifted quite a bit. Here is a look at how powerful (or weak) some of these have been in the past. I will only be looking at abilities and talent numbers and not so much at reworked abilities and talents.


  • Anub'arak
