I remember on release I saw this champion and I thought, wow! a unit that makes deck building for IS easy again(on release) His presence in constructs was unmatched as he recycled his nerf list up to what it currently is today. On release: OP 55 nora Nora miner 2 upgrade available, recycle available, Equipment had a nora cost. Safe to say this guy took the recycle combo and made it mainstream. He was genning nora from the equips from lodestone construct almost every round if you had 2 on the field and with nora miner 2 he was basically a 2 man nora engine that rivaled the old school UD/IS nora gen engine. People started running resonance and nora gen counters alot as they begged for nerfs on him. I was all for them if done correctly to keep the rune in a nice spot. They took out equipment cost on equipment granting champions, relics, and spells. After first nerf: toned down but still Overpowered Nora miner 2 upgrade still available, recycle still available With the fist combo you could gen 30 nora with ease, this combined with the engineers still allowed them to gen massive amounts of nora with nora miner 2 on base After second nerf: In a good spot(imo) Nora miner reduced to rank 1 nora cost to 52 nora With nora miner no longer auto this allowed me to explore his other upgrades, something I had not done before with the simple nora miner presence now gone. I noticed he was one of those units that impacts the game very few ways without his nora gen. The combo still worth it imo, was dropped from my battlegroups cause of the need to run like 5 equipment to make armory worth it( yes the good equips are there too but still its just not my style of play) and with engineer+ armory+fist it takes up alot of rune slots really quick. The combo was mainstream and from the start of the nerfs, he remained genning quite a bit of nora in twos genning 60 nora might seem a bit drastic but the combo needs atleast two rounds of that and lets face it, if you weren't setting it up, it was rushed most of the time by stronger, cheaper battlegroups. Most recent nerf: Niche rune, Still a strong support unit in construct battlegroups. Needs nora miner 2 back so he can generate nora again. Removed recycle, added shatter While Im glad that respectfully allowed him to keep his anti equipment role I am disappointed in his current lackluster form. Now he is just a shoebox rune enjoying his only role in a construct battle group where this silver clan is the only place he will shine. Is has champions that can shatter on hit tank and kill champions. this guys time in meta is over and it will stay that way forever. So Added to the list of runes that are terrible niche runes with (dwarven tinkerer, dwarven catapult, siege engine) Im waiting on this guy to get nora miner 2 back, till then, IS has once again been nerfed into the shoebox.
