Morello's thoughts on Darius rework (ult = physical damage)

#1Shadow EdgePosted 1/15/2013 6:02:19 AM
Tentative general idea is that less stacks is weaker, while more stacks is more rewarding. Ult becomes physical damage, and adds 10% ArPen per stack, so at 10 stacks it's true damage.

Darius is fine.

Darius is not fine. His ult does waaaaaaaaay too much damage, and the stacks are easy as Hell to get to full. I have seen him build only a mallet as AD, going full on tank mode, and still owns people one at a time. He requires no skill at all and does way too much damage. I don't care what people here say, the dude is BS.

Yeah. Really hoping this doesn't happen. Getting five stacks is hard enough, ten seems pretty rare.

If good things come to those who wait - arn't they just the leftovers of those who got there first?
There is not good or bad, just perspective and opinion.

Darius is fine from a power perspective. Problem is that he's the Teemo of the tanky dps.

His ult isn't the problem. It's the stupid bleed. I love it when he takes all his team's kills and ends up becoming a useless brick late game.

Potentially no slow on W if the target has 0 stacks. Everyone in lane now just gets to run away from Darius if they're pulled.

Considering the sources of armour pen/reduction at Darius' disposal, I'm not opposed to his ult doing physical damage with penetration per bleed stack. If he's been fighting someone he'll still get the kill, but he's less tempted to just ult 3+ low people in a teamfight with no stacks and steal the kills.

But they need to do something with his attack speed or make stacks last longer if they seriously expect you to get to 7+ stacks in an engagement before going in for the kill, especially if you have no good slow at low stacks.

Pull -> Auto -> W (resets AA timer, so 2 autos) -> Q -> DUNK -> /laugh

You have 5 stacks in 1 combo. Make sure to include the /laugh.
