Patch 4.11

DEMONIC DECREE (PERK)

  • Basic Attack Crystal Power Ratio 
    • 30% → 28%

BLADE WHIRL (B)

  • Damage 
    • 45 / 90 / 135 / 180 / 270 → 40 / 80 / 120 / 160 / 240 

Patch 4.9

Ishtar is still proving to be the queen of both Halcyon Fold and Sovereign’s Rise. We felt her base shield was unusually high for a carry, so we reduced that to bring it more in line with other carries.

BUG FIX

  • Ishtar’s minions now correctly show Magnus’ mark when struck by his abilities.

STATS

  • Decreased Base Shield and Shield Per Level
    • 25 – 74 (levels 1-12) → 20 – 55

DEMONIC DECREE (PERK)

  • Basic Attack Crystal Power Ratio Decreased
    • 35% → 30%

BLADE WHIRL (B)

  • Cooldown Increased
    • 10s / 9.5s / 9.0s / 8.5s / 7.0 → 12s / 11.5s / 11s / 10.5s / 9s 

Patch 4.8

Ishtar is still proving to be a powerful force to be reckoned with. We are adjusting the cooldown on her Shadow Razor since it is her primary ability but also giving a greater incentive to overdrive her Blade Whirl by decreasing the damage at early levels.

SHADOW RAZOR (A)

  • Cooldown
    • 13 / 12 / 11 / 10 / 7 → 15 / 14 / 13 / 12 / 9

BLADE WHIRL (B)

  • Damage
    • 60 / 105 / 150 / 195 / 240 → 45 / 90 / 135 / 180 / 270 

Patch 4.7

Even with the hotfix, the Demon Queen is still proving to be too powerful for other heroes to handle. We’re hitting some of her solo damage as well as decreasing the power spike that she gains when she has four Living Blades out.

DEMONIC DECREE (PERK)

  • Basic Attack Crystal Power Ratio
    • 40% → 35%
  • NEW: Crystal Power Ratio on Living Blade’s Basic Attack
    • 40% → 30%
  • NEW: Same Target Damage Scaling
    • 50% → 25%

SHADOW RAZOR (A)

  • NEW: Same Target Damage Scaling
    • 50% → 25%

BLADE WHIRL (B)

  • NEW: Same Target Damage Scaling
    • 50% → 25%

ASCENSION (C)

  • NEW: Cooldown Increased
    • 70s / 60s / 50s → 85s / 75s / 65s
  • Basic Attack Crystal Power Ratio
    • 25% (x2) → 20% (x2)
  • Basic Attack Weapon Power Ratio
    • 60% (x2) → 55% (x2)
  • Bonus Vampirism
    • 10% / 15% / 20% → 5% / 10% / 15%

Patch 4.6

ISHTAR: THE ANCIENT EVIL

After thousands of years locked away, Ishtar emerges, an ancient evil here to destroy the enemy…much to her delight. Ishtar summons her Blades at will,  and manipulates them to do her bidding.  This blade wielding battle mage uses her basic attacks, and those of her Blades to dominate the battlefield, leaving only destruction in her wake. Unleash the ancient power within when the update drops!

Hero Release

DEMONIC DECREE (PERK)

Ishtar’s basic attacks deal crystal damage and scale with her overall crystal power.

If Ishtar performs a basic attack in the presence of a Blade, it will also perform a basic attack dealing bonus CP damage.

 SHADOW RAZOR (A)

Ishtar fires a Blade in a straight line that travels toward the target location, dealing damage to all enemies that it passes through. All existing nearby Blades are commanded to dash towards the target location.

BLADE WHIRL (B)

Passive: Gains attack speed per level.

Active: Ishtar and all of her Blades perform a spinning slash, dealing damage in an area around them and slowing enemies hit. Landing Blade Whirl gives Ishtar a movement speed boost.

ASCENSION (Ultimate)

Ishtar destroys all existing Blades before creating four new ones near her. Afterwards she becomes empowered, gaining a new basic attack as well as additional lifesteal and movement speed.

Ishtar gains a stack of Indomitable on each hero kill or assist and loses one on death. Each stack grants bonus armor, shield and vampirism. (up to 10 stacks.)

RELENTLESS (Legendary)

Every time a Blade is summoned, Ishtar gains additional attack speed for 10 seconds (up to 20 stacks).
