  • Spontaneous Cover is a great idea. Tic for Tac is also interesting but I wonder if he could actually take a crit to crit back

    @Renly Normal. If it was fast or slow it would have the passive and tag,

  • @meowstaa_

    He seems like a Willow counter only if Willow is on defense (and we assume she targets him). If he is on defense you can just bring Willow and Kira.
  • If a strong Willow snipes him, isn't he still done for? If he's got around the same hit points as nitpick, can't imagine him surviving a sniper shot with the nature bonus for him to even use the nice passives.
  • @zugzug

    My comment assumed his shield passive worked similar to bloom in that he couldn't be one shot. If not, I agree with you.

    I'm sure willow will 1 shot him.
  • @mr_master2 @zugzug judging from the wording. It only activates after he takes damage. If willow with tsume buff can one shot him at even level and star, then he's not going to do much

  • Will be interesting to see where/if he fits into the PvP metagame...although Willow looks like a super easy counter.

    Blood in the Water sounds particularly meh...

  • I wish he wasn't that similar to Nitpick, both in design and in name. But whatever, he is freaking awesome.

  • Wondering how much the "crit damage" is increased when his health is low. Kinda Tsume-like but only if he crits. He does sound like he would work well with Tsume.

    Sounds heroes like Tsume or a Rogar with the multi-hit attack (double chop, skull cracker)would also be a good counter to him as well with that auto-Aegis shield.
  • I want him already
    When I left you I was but the learner. Now I am the potato master.
  • For one brief shining moment I had unlocked Dhaegon and had all the non-VIP heroes. Guess it's back to work now...
  • I'm liking the possibilities with this critter.

    How is it breaking meta when he is a water hero and as such Willow tends to 1 shot those kind easily. So I'm not sure how Aegis shield will save him from death when it is applied after the fact he got the damage.. Maybe I misunderstand the trait? It is not like Iceblooms Frozen heart trait when she survives with 1 hp. That would have been sick though lol.. I think he will fit well in PVE for sure.

    All these assumptions about him being squishy, the same we thought for icebloom and look at her now..
    Besides, what I suggested was (the overused) BD willow defenses, Bd hits, activates aegis, willow sniper shots for 0 and grants him crits. Plus, if bd takes him low enough (assuming that he lives a crit, willow does so why cant he?) crit damage boost can be lethal.
    Just assumptions so far, cant say anything for sure until actual releas. Cooldowns on the othr abilities can play a significant role.(not much firepower otherwise)

    Ah, so there will be a Yellow Shadowblade and an Evo character! Sorta Neat.

    Honestly, not digging Icepick right now. I'll wait until I see him completely after unlock so I can say a complete opinion, but from what I see, he's an interesting character clone of Nitpick that has some pretty neat boons, but what seems to look like pretty bad flaws in Willow and such. I hope he's better than how he's looking now, like having a large defense stat!

    Speaking of which, this game is really into darkness and hell lol. With Demons and Hell and all, I wouldn't be surprised if some parents make a group and call this a Satanic game lol (we all know it's clearly not).
