7.22 patch winners (Part 1)

Home » Esports » 7.22 patch winners (Part 1)

Let’s have a look at some of the heroes who we believe are the winners of the patch 7.22.

(1) Alchemist

Alchemist is our winner of the patch since with each Scepter that he gives to his teammates, he will get 30+ Damage and 6% Spell Amp.

We already told you that the games are going to be quite longer with the introduction of the patch 7.22. So Alchemist is is going to have a very popular in the game. Firstly since every hero can now equip Scepter meaning that you can easily give it to all your teammates. Secondly, if Alchemist consumes one Scepter and give one each to four other teammates, then mathematically, he will have  +150 Damage and +30% Spell Amplification. So this makes him a true winner of the patch.

(2) Anti-Mage

With the Scepter if you get a kill with Mana Void, AM’s ultimate. Then it will add 70 seconds to the longest cooldown ability of the enemy hero. Moreover, the cooldown with initiate after the enemy respawns. Lastly, 1 second of stun duration is also added to the ultimate.

He is one of the best heroes to get a Scepter, since he can easily get the 4100 gold owing to his fast farming. The players will now be going for Scepter instead of the Moon Shard as their 7th item. To put is as an example, just think if you kill an enemy Enigma with Mana Void. The cooldown of the Black Hole will increase from 160 to 230 seconds. That’s honestly a game changer. We believe that the Scepter on AM will be a highly situational item. Yet it is capable of turning the game in your team’s favor with a single ultimate.

(3) Chaos Knight

The Knight gets decent buffs on its Chaos Bolt ability. The minimum and the maximum damage has been buffed. The minimum stun duration of the ability has also be increased on early levels. Meanwhile, the talents of maximum stun duration have also been buffed. But to compensate for all these buffs the ability gets a longer cooldown on early levels.

The Chaos Knight is a very popular hero in the competitive landscape, since he either gets picked on banned in all pro games. These changes will only boost his popularity. The level three minimum stun duration boost is a big change that will make the hero kills his opponent easily in 1v1 match up. Meanwhile, the buff to minimum damage means that he is now relatively stronger in the laning phase.

(4) Dark Willow

The added Scepter makes Dark Willow able to attack the enemies without breaking the Shadow Realm. Moreover each attack will have more damage as the duration of the ability increases.

This a is good change for the hero. Since Willow is amongst the heroes with the lowest base attack in the game. Yet its attack rate is still pretty fast, with a Scepter you will get the best of both worlds, making you more relevant in the late game.
