Quote from Blizzard
We’ve just released a new patch for Heroes of the Storm in order to apply a few bug fixes. Check out the patch notes below.
Heroes and Talents
- Rehgar: Casting Rewind will no longer reset the cooldown of Ghost Wolf (Z).
- Fixed an issue that could prevent the client from fully shutting down after exiting the game.
- Fixed an issue causing the tooltip for Kerrigan’s Fury of the Swarm ability to display an incorrect value.
Medivh Skills & Talents Recap
Medivh is still a couple weeks away, but it's probably a good time to recap his base kit, skills, stats and talents. Back during the reveal, eruhenon published a post with all his skills, base stats and talents. It also contains some comments with interesting facts.
You can also watch the complete hero review made by LowkoTV, with plenty of insight into his abilities, general role, as well as which situations he will excel or be weak in. Check it out!
Quote from eruhenon
Health: 1529 (lvl 10: 2177)
Mana: 500 (lvl 10: 590)
Autoattack (lvl 2): 70
Q Arcane Rift
Launch an Arcane Rift in the target direction that deals 182 damage to enemies in its path. If an enemy Hero is hit, the cooldown is reduced by 5 seconds and 30 mana is refunded
W Force of Will
Project your will onto an ally, shielding them from all damage for 1.5 seconds.
(Comment: still vulnerable to CC)
Place a Portal at Medivh and the target location, creating a link that allows allies to teleport between both Portals. The link lasts 6 seconds.
Trait Raven Form
Possessing Atiesh allows Medivh to transform into a Raven. Upon transforming, Medivh gains 15% Movement Speed, can fly over terrain, and becomes Immune to all effects.
(Comment: Default vision radius is reduced, no interaction with Temple Objectives or collecting seeds/gems, so probably also no other objectives or merc capture points, XP soak is still possible)
R1 Poly Bomb
Poly Boms the target enemy hero, silencing them and supressing their attack for 2 seconds. On expiration, the target spreads Poly Bomb to other nearby enemy heroes.
(Comment: This is indefinitly like chain bomb lvl 20 upgrade, Relentless makes it scarier, as it activates faster leaving less time to split up)
R2 Ley Line Seal
After 0.5 seconds, unleash a forceful blast of Arcane magic from beneath the ground, imprisoning enemy Heroes in its path and placing them in Statis for 3 seconds.
(Comment: 3 seconds after being hit, so not everyone will be released at the same time, Does it interact with Merc Camps like Void Prision, or can you freeze them and then capure?)
Stable Portal (E)
Portals last 50% longer
Raven's Intellect (Trait)
Mana Regeneration is increased by 100% while in Transform: Raven.
Mana Adept (Q)
Increases the mana refund for hitting enemy Heroes by 100%.
Portal Mastery (E)
Placement of both portals can now be controlled separately. The first portal won't link until a second portal is cast nearby. Use "D" to cancel an unlinked Portal
Mage Amor (W)
Allies gain Block the first time they use a pair of Portals, reducing damage from the next 3 Heroic Baic Attacks by 50%. Lasts 5 seconds.
Bird's Eye View (Active)
Permanently increase Transform: Raven's vision range by 25%. Activate to increase this bonus to 200% for 5 seconds.
Dust of Appearance (Active)
Activate to reveal enemies in the immediate area around Medivh for 10 seconds. Does not cancel Transform: Raven.
Arcane Explosion (W)
The first time Force of Will absorbs damage, an Arcane Explosion is unleased for 183 damage around its target.
Arcane Change (Q)
If an enemy Hero is hit, the next Arcane Rift deals 25% more damage.
The Master's Touch (Q)
Quest: Hit 35 enemy Heroes to permanenly increase the cooldown reduction by 1 second and the damage dealt by 100. Unfinished progress is lost on death.

Winds of Celerity (Z)
Increases Transform: Raven's Movement Speed boost by 100%
Lowers the cooldown of Portal by 50%.

Upon ending, Force of Will heals the target for 50% of all the damage it absorbed.
Glyph Of Poly Bomb (R)
Poly Bomb explodes 1 second sooner and the spread radius is increased by -29%.
(Comment: the - is probably an error?)
Medivh Cheats! (R)
Increase the duration of the Stasis effect by 33% and gain the ability to redirect the ley Line once while it's active.
(Comment: after redirecting the Ley Line travels the whole duration again, can be any angle)

(Comment: Radius seems to be similar to Malfurion's Tranquility)
