StarCraft 2 Patch 1.4.3 Buffs Phoenixes (Download Link)
StarCraft 2‘s patch 1.4.3 went live yesterday and brings a Protoss buff and a Terran nerf. Phoenixes now have a range upgrade, MULES are less powerful on rich-yield minerals, and Ghosts won’t be able to Snipe Brood Lords as easily anymore.
The patch introduced the following balance changes:
- Phoenix: A new upgrade has been added to the Fleet Beacon: Anion Pulse-Crystals. This upgrade increases Phoenix weapon range by +2.
- Ghost: Snipe damage changed from 45 to 25 (+25 vs Psionic).
- Orbital Command Center: MULE now always returns 30 minerals per trip, regardless of mineral type.
As a protoss player, I’m happy to see the Phoenix get some love, and I’m especially happy to see Terran nerfed. Ahem.
