Warcraft III: Reforged got a pretty huge patch to start the new year. Update v1.35.0 not only lets players download or create their own custom campaigns, but it also comes with balancing adjustments to all races in the game.

The company has nerfed some amazing spells, most likely because they can easily turn the tide of battle. One of the spells nerfed in Warcraft III: Reforged ’s latest patch is Mass Teleport.

Mass Teleport is an Archmage spell that allows players to transport a bunch of their units anywhere on the map, so long as there’s a friendly unit or structure. That said, Mass Teleport’s cooldown has increased from 20 to 30 seconds.

Tranquility is another useful spell nerfed in Update v1.35.0. Cast by Keeper of the Grove, this spell can regenerate the HP of all allied units within its area of effect. Unsurprisingly, Tranquility’s cooldown is also increased from 60 to 120 seconds.

Here are the other balancing changes in this patch:

  • Blacksmith lumber cost reduced from 60 to 40.
