For years people have been asking for a buff for Toth. More than ever it seems appropriate now. He is outclassed by all similar heroes. Every fast hit-3 either does more damage or has a much better secondary effect (Drake, White Rabbit, Evelyn, Panther, etc etc.).
This is an old HotM, and the first minion maker (I believe). Let’s compare him to Seshat, as she is a fast, dark hero that also creates minions (seems a fare comparison).
Very comparable, though Seshat wins out on attack which probably gives her the edge.
Toth hits 3 for 215%, Seshat hits 1 for 400% (Most would probably prefer Seshat here), they have the opportunity to deal similar damage. maybe even giving Toth the edge.
Their minions, almost the same, Toth’s have a little more health, but Seshat’s hit harder. But Seshat’s regenerate every 3 turns (gives her the edge).
That’s where Toth’s abilities stop, but let’s look at all the other things Seshat does.
Seshat Dispells target and nearby enemies (very valuable effect)
Seshat has the ability to resist mana reduction.
Seshat has an elemental link that gives all dark heroes +4% mana regen.
So Seshat is pretty comparable to Toth before you include her 3 other abilities that Toth doesn’t even have. When you look at them together, Toth doesn’t make much sense as a hero.
He doesn’t have to be as good as Seshat, but he certainly deserves some more love and thought if he’s going to exist in the same game as Seshat.
If someone knows where there is a poll to vote for a Toth Buff, please link it, I’d like to put my support for a buff forward.
