Armor & PTR:
Armor now reduces damage differently
-3 dmg per “tick” of dmg now on PTR
-5 dmg per “tick” of dmg previously
Also, this change means that anything 6 dmg and below per dmg source will be half. Before the threshhold before dmg was halved was 10 (because of the -5)
So the calculations reduce dmg done to Armor targets by half, until the dmg exceeds 6. This is most noticeable on units with machine guns and shotguns using many shots in quick succession or lots of pellets spreading in a single shot.
Brigitte - Rally - Duration of the effect down to 30 sec.
DVa - Defense Matrix - Cooldown between uses increased from 1 sec to 2 sec.
Reaper - Shotgun/Passive - Lifesteal increased from 30% to 50% of dmg dealt.(edited)
