range from 700/800/900 to 400/550/700 (he may need another nerf, but i want to take it one

* Fixed a typo on the spirit bear's entangle


* This version was going to be released in 2 weeks but with recent abuses on morphling/necro, i decided to just release it now. This doesn't have as much new content as i had planned, however, you can expect new content to flow in at a steady rate.
* Lord of Avernus will be looked into in the next few versions to make him less boring. Morphling adapt will probably get reworked in the near future as well.
* Thanks to the beta testers for their help; switch and minotaar for icons; Terrorblaze for hero descriptions. Special thanks to mercurial for the new 100% hand drawn loading screen art. He worked on it for over a month. We almost couldn't use it, we spent all of thursday evening trying to properly compress it due to blizzard format issues. A desktop wallpaper version of it is available at http://mercurialxen.deviantart.com
