Mantis and Jessica Jones Balancing Update!

Hey all,

Balance Team here again with an update on the latest round of Champions up for review, Mantis and Jessica Jones!


Mantis is getting tuned up! Armed with a potent Guaranteed Crit Sp2, Mantis was designed to be most effective in shorter fights (i.e Alliance War and Battlegrounds). So far we’re seeing Mantis do quite well in her optimal matchups (Science defenders with incoming debuffs), but she’s performing lower than we’d like in other complex encounters. Given her higher risk playstyle, we’ll be looking to increase her damage in non-optimal matchups.

Jessica Jones

No changes for Jessica! She’s feeling like the sturdy brawler that she should on offense. On defense, her performance has been boosted even higher by the synergy her abilities have with some nodes, especially in her debut into Battlegrounds Season 5, but we’re happy with the growing trend of Cleanse Champions and other strategies being used to counter her.

What’s Next

A Mantis tuneup! Her timeline will look like:
39.0 (May) + 40.0 (June): CCP Beta preview
40.1 (July): Full release with changes

As a reminder, we also have Shuri and Attuma going through their tuneup process as well, with CCP Beta release coming very soon and a full release in June’s update.
