Bramble is a very difficult to kill strength hero who supports his team in a variety of ways. Whether it be Disables, Movespeed, Heals, or splitting the enemy team in two, Bramble is a valuable asset to any team.

== Optimizations & Bug Fixes ==

Couriers: Enemy items they pick up can now be dropped normally again

BehemothFissure will no longer cause creeps to path long ways around when blocked
If creeps are blocked at a ramp, they will now just push themselves against the Fissure and wait for it to end
KinesisInherent Defense will no longer gain strength from DOT damage Kinesis does
This means items like Mock of Brilliance will no longer increase the shield strength
