I have a question about his ultimate, from what I understand it deals 100/150/200 dmg per second? To which 6 seconds times 200 is 1200, yet the hero seems pretty decent it needs some nerfs and some rebalancing. Great job though!
JakeKolkat (2) | November 17, 2021 3:33pm
Yeah you're right; I think he needs nerfs in some cases, & Thanks for your feedback!
TheTruePrringler | December 28, 2021 8:54pm
Hey so its been awhile and I decided to recheck, and the ultimate is still a little strong. 650 radius is pretty wide and the root duration is 6 seconds, and 6 seconds is about 860 damage. this ability is stronger than treants and his ultimate is already pretty decent, if anything you may need to nerf the root duration but the damage is ok. Or if you want to keep it you could increase the cooldown to about 145s and 200 / 260 / 320 mana. But good job with keeping up and paying attention.
