  • ADAPTABLE FIGHTING STYLE
  • CORRUPTION SPECIALIST

Special Capabilities:

  • ENHANCED LIGHT ATTACKS
  • CHARGEABLE UNBLOCKABLE CLAW
  • CORRUPTION FEATS TO ISOLATE OPPONENTS

Known Issue: Campaign completion rewards are missing for the Warmonger

CORE COMBAT UPDATE

The Core Combat Update is a global series of improvements that affects all fighters, consisting of the following improvements:

  • New system makes fight moves look consistently faster over the network:
    • Removed the visual variability of opponent’s fight moves speeds caused by timing of the inputs
    • As a result, for all fight moves, the first 100ms of animation and user interface are consistently skipped over the network (whether delayed or buffered)
    • As a result, feints are also more believable
  • Damage adjustments
    • Generally, Light Attack damage is reduced
    • Generally, counter-attack tools damage is reduced
    • Generally, Heavy Finishers damage stays high to incentivise following through with your Chains
  • Recoveries normalized
    • Light Attacks generally are now frame disadvantaged (to weaken “Light Spam”)
    • Heavy Finishers generally are now frame advantaged (to incentivise following through with your Heavy Chain Finisher)
  • Stamina penalties removed
    • Now there is no extra stamina cost on Miss, Block and Parry
  • Light Stamina Costs are now generally 12 (from 6)
  • Light Light Chains can now be Dodged out of (due to branching timing changes)
  • Dodge Attacks that were 500ms are now increased to 533ms
    • This affects Peacekeeper, Shaman, Valkyrie, Tiandi, Conqueror, Gladiator, Raider, Nuxia
  • Opening Light attacks that were faster than 500ms are now 500ms
    • This affect Peacekeeper’s Light and Zone, Lawbringer, Orochi, Shaolin
  • Zone Attacks are now more comfortable to perform

Developer Comments: There are a lot of additional damage, stamina, and minor timing changes made to make the above happen. Please see the For Honor Competitive Information Hub created and maintained by top players on the r/CompetitiveForHonor subreddit.

IMPROVEMENTS

ONLINE

  • [Adjustment] While launching the game, a different text will be displayed for each step of the connection process
  • [Adjustment] Increase the time allocated for the game connection process to help some rare cases when downloading game data took too long, reducing the occurrences of error 2-00002911
  • [Bug Fix] Fixed some situations where players were not able to receive rewards or buy scavenger crates for some heroes showing as unlocked

BREACH

  • [Adjustment] Increased Ram Health to 9750 (from 9000)

Developer Comments: Following the release of the Breach Improvements in Season 1 of Year 4, we saw that the Win/Loss ratios were now more even across the different maps. However, we see that the Defending teams still hold a significant advantage over the Attacking teams overall. Raising the Ram’s Health bar by an additional cauldron strike will help the Attackers clear through the final Gate or allow them to have a little more breathing room in number of respawns in the Commanders Phase.
