Paragon patch .41 nerfs Phase, Revenant and Morigesh – Wraith released

Paragon patch .41 nerfs Phase, Revenant and Morigesh – Wraith released

Today is new hero day in Paragon and Wraith should now be live for everyone. We’ll be taking a look at Wraith and posting our thoughts as soon as he’s live.

The patch that is supposed to hit the servers today actually has a few changes of note for Dekker, Gideon, and Kallari. Morigesh, Revenant, and Phase have all been nerfed. These are the three heroes I have seen the most complaints about and I’ll admit Morigesh was a real handful. Phase may feel a little less effective now but I’ve yet to see if the changes have any real impact.

The patch notes are as follows.
