For Honor Patch Notes

Below you will find the official patch notes for the October 21 For Honor update,

IMPROVEMENTS

SHUGOKI

  • Removed Uninterruptible Stance from Demon Ball

Developer’s Comment: Shugoki players could use Demon’s Ball in the middle of a group fight and avoid being punished for it, and in fact teammates could pile damage onto the victim.

By removing the defensive properties on Shugoki and its victim during the move, other players should now be able to interrupt it.

We also fixed a bunch of minor issues on the attack, which prevented players from blocking/parrying the attack when interrupted at just the right time.

  • Lowered Shugoki’s Super Sprint movement to 7.25m/s (from 8.5m/s)

Developer’s Comment: Reducing Shugoki’s mobility a bit here, part of the intent is to slightly reduce his overall effectiveness.

FEATS

  • Reduced Staggering Blow duration to 20s (from 45s)

Developer’s comment: This should tone down Staggering Blow without taking away from its impact on combat. Players will have to be more mindful of when they use Staggering Blow to be as effective as before.
