Good morning/afternoon/evening everyone (depending on where in the world you’re at). Fun little discussion I thought I’d bring up today on the topic of Damage Over Time/Turn abilities and if we could offer some solutions to make them more effective.
I love Lianna. She’s probably my favorite hero right now. And a big reason for that is because I feel like while Marjana and Sartana are good heroes, I feel as though they are less-useful because Damage Over Turn abilities do not seem to be making up for the balance cost of reducing their direct damage, before the DoT has expired.
I think there is a solution somewhere. And, I think it’s important to maybe start understand just how effective Azlar and Colen can be, in contrast. The Area of Effect fire DoT’s immediately put you on the defensive and in understanding that you are going to probably lose this fight if you let those DoT’s tick all the way down, unless you do something about it.
I don’t feel that way about Sartana and Marjana. I feel threatened a little by their nukes, but most of the time they won’t one-shot me… and losing one hero, as opposed to a fire dot from Colen or Azlar potentially destroying my team to the point of no return, isn’t nearly as devastating. Lianna, on the other hand is always a threat because her damage isn’t spread out over turns. Conclusively, how often does a Marjana or Sartana DoT even finish their count before the battle is over or the enemy is dead.
Anyway, I look forward to hearing your thoughts about this. And, if we could keep the discussion civil, I’d greatly appreciate.
