Along with the release of new character, Fahkumram, Tekken 7’s patch 3.30 also includes quite a few buffs for some of the game’s most notorious characters.
A few significant buffs were made to Mishima-style characters, Heihachi, Kazuya, and Devil Jin. Their unique move, Electric Wind God Fist (EWGF), now has a shortened recovery time on a miss (-3 frames), which should make the EWGF a deadly, yet safe tool for keep-out.

The notorious hellsweep now has increased tracking, giving Mishima players (except Heihachi) a stronger mix-up game. Most players will now have to resort to blocking the low move rather than side-walking.
Aside from the Mishimas, Hwoarang, Nina, and Anna received multiple buffs to their stance-based moves such as reduced frames and increased damage.
As for nerfs, guest characters Akuma and Geese Howard are still getting micro-nerfs to make them more tolerable in-game. Geese’s b1+2 has new frames on block (-7 to -12) and on hit (+4 to +1) while Akuma’s Ashibarai (d4) deals less damage (20 to 17).
