Anyways, for the quoted part of your post, I took a screenshot of the grapple ability;
Here is how I read it;
Range increase, this range determines the target point location where both you and your target will be pushed/dragged to.
From the target point location, the gauntlet will fly an additional 725 distance or until it hits something (except if you already hit something on the way to the target point location).
I agree that the new 2nd skill is rather confusing, but a dramatical improvement.
The Vector targeting was waaay too difficult to get right, while the current one can be used to either push you and an enemy to your allies, or push you and an ally like Behemoth to the middle of a teamfight (a cheap and awesome alternative to Portal Key early-game).
I'd want to see a minor buff to his Passive, like 45 or 50 charges. This way he can really be viable to shut down a carry (which seems to be everyone's concern regarding him)
Grapple is even worse than before. It's not even interesting now, it's just like a crappy version of Pharaoh's hook. Infernal fist is still a satisfying ability, so that's fine. Cripple is fine. Ult is fine, but I still think it has one of the worst aesthetic themes of all time.
I like the hero, he is fun. I just don't like the hook without vector targeting. I keep trying to pull people to my side but without the vector the hook just flys off in some random direction or whatever way my hero is facing.
I think they should bring the vector back.
First Skill: Much better
Second Skill: No more wonky vector targeting, seems to be faster. Could stand to have minor damage added to it (50/80/110/140) and range could be increased per rank up to slightly more than it is now (~800)
Third Skll: Much Better
Ultimate: Much Better
Useless hero kinda fixed.
HONOR- If you need it defined, you don't have it.
The second skill is awesome now, it's kinda like Storm Spirit.
Get portal key/shroud and use it like andro/kraken/dev, but safer - or use it with behe on your team for massive win.
Can someone post a detailed breakdown of his new skills? (take pity on those of us at work)
can someone discribe what changed for every spell? (im at work)
