Did they ninja-nerfed Ambras alternate attack?

I might be having false memories, but it feels like her alternate attack used to unload much more heat per strike?

I know that spear helix sucked, so I assume that instead of buffing it - they nerfed basic alternate attack?

I’ve noticed this as well. It used to take 3 strikes to unload heat and it takes around 6-8 now. I don’t see any difference in damage though so I feel this was more of a stealth-buff.

Dunno, felt like it had according reduction in bonus damage too. Seems only logical - less heat expanded per hit = less bonus damage is dealt. The spear helix make you expand all your heat for a mighty stroke, for exaple.
