Battle Momentum [Passive]

Basic Attacks reduce your Basic Ability cooldowns by 0.5 seconds.


Tier 3 (Hero Level 7)

Battle Momentum was a generic Talent that provided cooldown reduction whenever the hero basic attacks anything. It is an effective way of increasing the amount of abilities cast in a fight as long as you are not disabled or killed. The original talent used to also reduce heroic ability cooldowns, but it was patched[1] so each hero has their own unique version balanced around their attack speed and abilities, and the original generic talent no longer exists on any hero.
