New Rule – Spell Recovery Times

For a time, after a spell is cast, a hero may not cast another spell.

This time is a number of seconds equal to 1, plus the base mana cost of the spell multiplied by the level of the spell and divided by 50. So for a 30 mana spell, 5 th in the spell list (level 5) this would be 30*5/50 = 4.0 seconds. For Heal Self, this would be 1*8/50 = 1.16 seconds.

New Rule – Hero Attack Speed

A hero's attack speed is now based off of his DEX, not his MORALE. Morale still affects all of his troops, but his own speed will be 1 second less 0.01 second for every point of DEX over 10. This may not go lower than 0.4 seconds.
