So what do people think about the new Hyaenid?
I actually forgot what was even said about the new hyaenid. Which are actually one of my favorite themes in the game. So cydna is sadly correct
Well, I do. I shifted from KF to SP.
Seems potentially flexible and good for any bg (meta, electricity, nids, etc.). We'll have to wait and see when his signature ability procs (champion attacks, any electricity damage, etc.).
Maybe he will be an Eletricity BG focused instead of nids, but with ALSO uses in Nids only.
"Free attacks on anything nearby that takes Electricity damage" according to the preview video. Sounds spicy.
And balanced. Right?
He will most likely be melee but, hopefully, also with Leech Vitality and Mobility.
I think it depends on his range; whether he has a basic attack on his own; whether he loses 1 or 2 AP whenever he makes a "free attack"; whether there's a cap on the free attacks per round; and whether its procs off of champ damage or any electrical damage (auras, dots, spells, relics, etc.) An overpowered example would be a long-range hyaenid that can make an unlimited number of free attacks on every champion in range...imagine doubling the damage on lightning storm and tripling it when the shock damage procs or a power turn with havoc's tough on this guy plus lightning storm (or splitting w/ forbidden fruit).
New hyaenid has terrible stats and an op ability. Will not end well and probably needs to be changed.
Why do you like to pee on my Cheerios?
Well, it was a given considering the description of the ability. I mean:
"Free attacks on anything nearby that takes Electricity damage"
Is just asking for trouble, wtf.
I feel like this is an ability with need to sit back and watch in action first.
If it's problematic it'll get changed.
Might be fun.
Doesn't this ability already exist with Pack Leader? It is probably similar.
I have a feeling my electricity bg will become tier 1 with this expansion.Its a decent theme just lacking a bit more synergy to be strong.
the new Hyaenid is epic! Just give him paralytic feedback and hide him behind your stormflyers.
