Poll Question:

Do you think Hercules should be nerfed?
Permalink | Quote | PM | +Rep by _angrytoast » February 1, 2015 5:36pm | Report
Hello everyone!

I recently took up leagues joust and have been playing a lot of Poseidon and Anhur. Whenever I encounter a Hercules, I feel it is almost impossible to win, even if I get first blood and outplay the person etc.

Even outside of 1v1's Hercules when 6 slotted is incredibly hard to beat. THe thing that annoys me the most is the healing. I realize that Hercules is a warrior and should have lots of damage built into his kit, but his pull and stun mixed with invincibility if played right gets kind of old.

I agree, Hercules is so easy to use and is so powerful that a new player who has only been playing for less then a week can become a Diamond level-like player.

I don't think he should be nerfed, i almost always can juke Earthbreaker and Driving Strike, early game he is very mana hungry and not immortal because his heal is still weak ( every time i played against an herc solo with someone like baka, i winned my lane without much problem ), overall i rarely have problems with a herc, i found him easily counterable ( aegis for Excavate, beads for Earthbreaker and Driving Strike or anti healing )

It's fun to see this. Herc heal has already been nerfed badly (it won't regain all damage anymore/more heal then damage recieved)

the only thing annoying is his nuke combo being up pretty fast (his ult has a really short cooldown)

I think he is really strong, especially if you compare him to any other warrior I mean Osiris is still strong but like sun wukong or guan Yu pale in comparison to Herc in almost every aspect

I don't mind his heal as much as I mind his damage.

I really don't know why his 1 needs a stun, I'm not even gonna start ranting about the length of that stun. Its scaling also makes other warriors feel like minions next to herc (except vamana maybe, he's aa based).

I don't find him as op as many others do, but I wouldn't mind him getting some damage reduction (and maybe a stun duration nerf) on his 1.

I agree with Romanians. I don't mind his heal. It's honestly not that hard to deal with on its own if you build against it.

His damage tends to be pretty up there, though. He's one of the more tanky warriors thanks to his healing, but his damage output is also very nice, especially given his combos. I think a slight damage reduction wouldn't be too horrible for him.

Same, I think the heal is fine but everything else is wrong with Herc. Compared to other warriors his damage output is through the roof other then Osiris, but Osiris plays more like an assassin then a warrior.

even Chaac can't dish out herc's (death) nuke combo with his skills
