Patch Changes
February 25, 2020 Competitive content update:
  • Aura effects have been updated to be larger and more noticeable. The previous, more subtle aura effects are now used for auras on allies and for all characters viewed by PvP spectators when the Effect LOD option is checked in the graphics settings. Effect icons used for auras have been updated for consistency.
April 23, 2019
  • Dark Aura has been added to the game.
