It has become a lot easier for Hanabi to deal damage with her control immunity, so the developers nerfing her basic attack range to balance.

Basic Attack (↓)

Skill 1 (↑)

Damage dealt to non-hero units is converted into a shield, as well.

Ultimate (~)

Higanbana blooms upon every hit instead of only the first hit, but the bloom range is reduced and damage decays if Higanbana hits the same target repeatedly.
