The

Jungle

New Power Awaits Those Who Enter

The Jungle

The Jungle gets an overhaul, with new objectives and a new layout. A new buff focused on enabling aggression has been added to the Offlane Jungle, granting vision of enemies around the hero and causing basic attacks to slow enemy heroes. The Raptors have been replaced by Fangtooth, a tough enemy who grants a series of permanent bonuses to the team who defeats him. Finally, all of the minion camps have been redesigned to give Junglers better vision of their surroundings while farming. The Jungle will receive more updates in the future, with this being part one of the update.

Heads Up

The HUD is brand new, the first step of several planned upgrades. Upcoming updates will feature more HUD improvements, increasing clarity and giving players more options to customize their experience. Read a full breakdown of the HUD changes now and in the future in our UI blog.

MONOLITH

Minions are being redesigned in a two-step process. The first step arriving in the v.44 update will adjust minions’ critical last hit threshold. When you damage a minion below roughly 20% health, that minion will be executed and you will be rewarded with a last hit. The second step is a full redesign of minion art, highlighting different states of damage before exposing a minion’s weak center. The visual redesign will arrive in the v.44.3 update.
 

Last hitting is not very clear in MOBAs and we want to make it better in Paragon. These changes allow you to clearly understand when you can last hit with any Hero and play less of the “stand and wait” game. Our goal is to let you focus on Hero-to-Hero combat as opposed to idly watching minion health bars.
 

  • Minions
    • Minions are now executed when attacked with low health.
      • A minion’s health bar will turn red when a player’s next basic attack will execute that minion.
    • Large White Jungle Minion
      • Increased Max Health from 980 to 1100.
    • Green Buff Minion
      • Increased Max Health from 1500 to 1550.

    • Ability damage no longer deals damage to structures.
    • Core has been reworked.
      • No longer fires an AOE blast which hits all enemies.
      • Now fires single-target attacks similar to how towers and inhibitors currently work.  Attacks deal 320 damage per attack and attack speed still scales based on how many inhibitors have been destroyed.
  • Objectives
    • Black Buff
      • Added a new black jungle camp in the Offlane jungle which grants ‘Hunter’s Sight’.
        • Hunter’s Sight
          • Basic attacks slow movement speed of enemy heroes.
            • Melee: 20%
            • Ranged: 15%
          • Grants vision of enemy heroes in a large radius around you.  Does not reveal Shadowplane units.
      • Shares the same health and damage values as Green Buff Minion.
    • Fangtooth
      • Raptor camp has been replaced by Fangtooth!
        • Killing Fangtooth grants the entire team a stack of ‘Mark of Fangtooth', which provides buffs based on how many stacks the team has.
          • 1st kill: +4 Power, +1000 Gold
          • 2nd kill: +4 Power, +10% Out of Combat Movement Speed
          • 3rd kill:+4 Power, +15% Non-Hero Damage
          • 4th kill: +8 Power with each additional kill of Fangtooth
      • Attacks apply a burn which deals 3% of current health per second as ability damage.
    • Fangtooth and Prime Guardian now have in-world point of interest icons to reveal whenever these objectives are alive. Visual and audio updates have also been made to increase awareness regarding these objectives.
    • Updated names and descriptions for all carried buffs:
      • Hunter's Sight (Black Buff) - Grants vision of nearby enemies and basic attacks apply a movement slow.
      • Shield of Zechin (Green Buff) - Shield that reflects damage while active and explodes when destroyed.
      • Amplification Orb (Red Buff) - Bonus ability damage.
      • Echo Orb (Orange Buff) - Applies damage over time to enemies on hit.
      • Swiftness Orb (Blue Buff) - Increases movement speed.
      • Shadow Orb (Purple Buff) - Grants Shadowplane while active.
    • All buffs received polish work and updated visuals to help carried buffs stand out from each other.
    • Greatly reduced the health regen of camps which are no longer in combat. This includes Fangtooth and Prime. The result is that camps will no longer heal to full shortly after leashing back to their original location, but still retain invulnerability during the retreat period and when being damaged without a hero in their combat radius.
  • Polish and Bug Fixing
    • Various minor map collision fixes and improvements

GAMEPLAY SYSTEMS

  • Movement slows no longer stack with each other. Only the greatest magnitude slow will be applied to a hero.
    • Example:
      • 50% Slow for 1 second.
      • 20% Slow for 3 seconds.
      • For 1 second, the hero will be slowed by 50%, when that slow expires the hero will remain slowed by 20% for another 2 seconds.
    • Slows for backpedaling, strafing, and attacking also follow these rules.  If a hero is slowed by 20% while backpedaling and a 10% slow is applied, they’ll continue to be affected by only the backpedal penalty unless they begin moving forward.
  • This change does not apply to movement speed boosts, they’ll continue to stack additively.
  • All movement slows and speed boosts have been converted from flat values to comparable percentages.

      • Focus on attacking enemy heroes, ignoring minions in the area.
      • Focus on farming minions while occasionally hitting enemy heroes with attacks.
      • Back off from enemy minions/heroes until the next wave of friendly minions (or other friendly heroes) arrive.
    • It is now less likely that AI heroes will all defend the same tower or inhibitor that’s under attack during late-game.
    • AI heroes wait until later in the match to group up, and once they do, they are more likely to group push the enemy Core.
