I’m glad HHG is finally starting to address Nightingale but the nerf to her stun barely qualifies.
Her silver mark still has an insane 66% uptime, and her mark still grants +15% crit on top of a large DPS boost.
So while thankfully the stun is 1 second shorter, during her mark (which is when her stun becomes the most dangerous) she now has a 23% chance to stun up from 15%. Throw in Caine and Moss and now Nightingale gets more stuns than ever. With those 2 and her Mark active, Nightingale will average 6 seconds (3 shots) between crits… on a 3 second stun.
I don’t think this is a buff to Nightingale either but it’s just laughable that PVP’s most powerful hero gets such minor changes. HHG, Nightingale didn’t need even MORE synergies, she needs to stop being the “does everything better than everyone else” support that she has become. In considering further changes you really should consider that 2 months ago crits were doing 2,000 bonus damage and they’re now doing 20,000 bonus damage… that crit buff has combined with the +15% crit from Nightingale’s Silver and caused that ability to go from “a strong contender for best ability in the game” to “uncontested best ability in the game”.
