Open thread to discuss hero balancing, in a constructive and diplomatic way.
Post v1.4 update, I do believe Boldtusk was balanced, appropriately. I am actually willing to fight him now. NIce job on the changes. I like what one forum member said that it felt like an “I Win button”.
Hel doesn’t seem too awfully powerful to warrant trying to get her. Although, I do understand that many have not leveled her very far.
Rigard seems to be the new Boldtusk. Well, maybe not new, but formerly overshadowed by Boldtusk. I had a cascade of roughly 20-30 gems (many Holy gems) hit him on top of a 34% defense debuff, and he still stayed alive to heal his team (barely, for what it’s worth). I can’t anticipate a scenario where any other hero even comes close to that ability to survive as a tank.
I have Hu-Tao, and will say that he seems a little overpowered. While it’s a welcome change, since I thought Hu-Tao was underpowered pre 1.4, the changes to the miss %'s and that they now more drastically affecting special attacks, he seems extremely powerful if his attack gets off. But, maybe his Slow mana generation is his achilles heal.
Just throwing my thoughts out there. I expect and welcome disagreement and agreement in a constructive/civil manner.
