Vainglory Version 4.11

SHIMMER BLADE (A)

  • Energy Cost 
    • 30 / 35 / 40 / 45 / 50 → 40 / 45 / 50 / 55 / 60

DANCE OF BLADES (B)

  • Multi-hit Damage Reduction
    • 50% → 60%

4.9

Since most Anka players generally max Dance of Blades first, her engage distance was a little lackluster, especially at early levels. These changes should help her be more consistent with when and where she can pick fights with the enemy.

SHIMMER BLADE (A)

  • Range Adjusted
    • 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 → 10 / 10 / 10 / 10 / 12

DANCE OF BLADES (B)

  • Damage Increased
    • 50 / 75 / 100 / 125 / 175 → 50 / 80 / 110 / 140 / 200

4.6

The last round of changes heavily nerfed Anka’s killing potential to the point where she couldn’t really assassinate her targets. We’re restoring some of the damage to her Dance of Blades so she can still strike fear into the hearts of carries.

SHIMMER BLADES (A)

  • The ability icon after landing Shimmer Blade on a target is now green for easier visibility.

DANCE OF BLADES (B)

  • Multi-hit Damage Reduction
    • 33% → 50%
  • Crystal Power Damage Ratio
    • 50% → 45%

4.5

When it comes to choosing her engages, Anka had a little too much freedom in team fights. These changes will dial back that window and make it a bit harder for her to straight up assassinate a full health target.

GYTHIAN PROMISE (PERK)

  • Missing Health Damage
    • 19% + 1% per hero level → 20% at all levels

SHIMMER BLADE (A)

  • Blink Available Duration
    • 3.0s → 2.5s

DANCE OF BLADES (B)

  • Multi-hit Damage Reduction
    • 50% → 33%

4.2

In conjunction with changes to the Blackclaw Rush speed boost and all boot items, we are buffing up Hero base movement speed to keep things crisp and let your skills take center stage.

3.6 → 4.0

DANCE OF BLADES

    • No longer deals reduced damage to lane minions

3.9

(bug fixes) Debuff may now be blocked

  • Silvernail B
  • Anka A
