Safeguard+

  • Increases the amount of damage nullified by the shield effect.

Blissey Endurance

Blissey has the ability to take a part of the damage when allies are being attacked; even though he was not as tanky, making this move his biggest weakness.

The changes in this update will allow Blissey to stay longer and closer to allies in team fights.

In the case of safeguard, on paper, it's one of the most interesting abilities in the entire game; cleanse and buff the damage of the carry. With the addition of a shield, Blissey can resist the counter strategy of focus on her first.
