Patch changes Edit

  • Warlords-Logo-Small Patch 6.0.2 (14-October-2014): Spinning Crane Kick now always generates 1 Chi, and no longer reduces movement speed.
  • Mists-Logo-Small Patch 5.4.0 (10-Sep-2013) Spinning Crane Kick now functions like a smart heal, healing the 6 most injured friendly targets within range, and minor guardians are no longer targeted (Wild Imps, Bloodworms, Snakes from Snake Traps, etc.). There has been no change to the total amount of healing granted by the ability.
  • Mists-Logo-Small Patch 5.0.4 (28-August-2012): Added.
