While you wait for the patch notes that are coming alongside the next Heroes of Newerth update, feel free to feast on the juicy morsels sent our way by S2 Games this afternoon.
Parasite, which S2 provided a preview of in yesterday's hero spotlight, will be joining the ranks of heroes in the game as of today's patch. But why wait? We have his skill information for you, which you can check out below.
- Leech ("Q"): Deals 80/130/180/230 Magic Damage to the target and steals 50/75/100/125 Movement Speed from it (giving it to Parasite).
- Infest ("W"): Takes control of target non-hero unit, placing Parasite “inside” of the unit. The target loses 3/2.5/2/1.5% of its Max Health per second, gains 20/40/60/80 Attack Speed, 25/50/75/100 Movement Speed, and gains 1/2/3/4 times Parasite's hero level in Attack Damage. Parasite may choose to exit the target at any time, instantly killing it and healing for 30/40/50/60% of its current Health.
- Draining Venom ("E" -- Passive): Targets that Parasite hits deal 6/12/18/24% less damage to him, and Parasite deals 6/12/18/24% bonus damage to the target.
- Facehug ("R"): Parasite attaches to the target and pulls himself to it, dealing 200/300/400 Magic Damage and applying a 2/3/4 second Silence. Additionally, any buffs the target has are transferred to Parasite, and any debuffs Parasite has are transferred to the target.
While the patch is not live yet, S2Fielding does mention that it's due to S2 not patching during busy hours. Rest assured, the patch is still on target for a release--probably some time later tonight.
