== Items ==
New Item - Striders
- New boots added to the Initiation shop
- Marchers + 300 (Recipe)
- 50 Movespeed. No other bonuses.
- When out of combat for 6 seconds, increases movespeed by 100 over the next 2 seconds, for a total of +150 movement speed (including the base).
- Bonus movespeed is removed when the owner takes damage, casts a spell, attacks, or uses an item.
* Using Non-combat items such as Wards, Bottle, Mana, or Health Potions will not remove the bonus speed
- Now requires a Mark of the Novice (+3 int) and Crushing Claws (+3 str) instead of a Scarab, granting +3 Str/Int
- Grants 150 mana for 150 health. Mana is no longer lost after a duration
- If an enemy hero dies within 15 seconds and 700 AOE of the user, the user is healed for 150 as the chalice uses the enemy's spilt blood to pay the debt.
- Cooldown lowered from 35s to 25s
- AOE abilities (such as witch slayer stun / pyromancer wave) no longer proc nullstone when clicking directly on a target
- Illusions will no longer proc a ministun. They still can get the +100 damage.
- Now only 'stuns' allies, letting them queue up abilities. Enemies it is used on can not queue up abilities or items while cycloned.
== Heroes ==
