BUFF THESE SLOW HEROES: Megathread

Ok since I am not drinking this evening I had to occupy my time, so here is a big list of simple changes to make Slow heroes more viable/worthwhile. Of course I would be deluded to think any of this would come true given…

“Will you consider to buff long forgotten Heroes such as boss wolf, g.owl, etc without needed to “buy” their Costume?”

  • Tim: Buffing individual old Heroes is not impossible (and to be honest we’d love to revisit them a bit more often), but it’s also very low on the priority list.

…but WTH right, might as well imagine a world in which Slow heroes are respected :stuck_out_tongue:

Any hero here you don’t have?

You’re aware that Lu Bu got a buff that raises his damage to 330%? Also his fiends have higher HP (can absorb almost entire Viv’s heal) and do more damage. And his family bonus got buff as well.

Klaern should get boost too. He’s on par with Azlar, which is really bad when you consider recent heroes.

Thanks for reminding me, forgot about his recent buff. Removed him.

I have a whole whopping 3! Zhuge Liang, Costumed Alberich, and Cao Cao (who I just pulled). I also have Congalach but like MN, Ludwig, and other Slow heroes I don’t feel he needs balancing, he is perfectly fine as is.

My wanting buffs for most heroes has nothing to do with ownership of them. A healthy and diverse hero community is better for everyone, regardless of spend limit and I feel that many Slow heroes need to be balanced to be actually potent if not somewhat scary should they fire.

Thanks for your good intentions asking for “Buff” for free.
but believe me. Your good intentions will be disturbed by nerf requesters.
after buffs. they will ask for nerf again. because this hero is too strong. Bla bla bla…
sometimes it’s ridiculous. Lol

You forgot Klaern!

Increase damage to 260%
Increase Water damage to 500 over 5 turns

Ok we have gone off-track here… @Dudeious.Maximus can you remove the whole discussion on “Vanilla” and make it its own thread? Sorry and thanks Mighty Dragon!

Reasonable changes suggested and agree with many of them.

Very disappointing to see SGG’s diplomatic reply of “not impossible, but very low on the priority list” - does just seem like a polite way of saying “never gonna happen”.

Lady of the Lake, costume version, make minions same as original. Reduce mana, not reduce mana speed

Agreed esp And perhaps shockingly Heimdall…I have him full LB and talent but hardly used him now even during war once I have C MN. The resurrection % needs to be boosted. Azlar, etc also agree

I was actually disappointed when I pulled Klaern twice…I almost always keep one of everything 4 and 5*, and I almost fed both of him to the Soul exchange. It’s sad when your entire (almost full) alliance would rather not pull a HOTM at all, but I have been disappointed in a few this year. It looks even worse up next to heroes like Zagrog and Arfanius.

The choice between boosted health and mana theft is a difficult one…and it would be wonderful to not have to make it, especially since the cost to level her and costume is enormous. I put over 2 months of effort into Lady of the Lake, and she is a fantastic tank, but that change would be so helpful.
