Yes! I agree with Dianthus's genius!
No! I inexplicably disagree with Dianthus's genius!
Ok. I know we are all at this point aware that Hammerstorm has a big sword on his back, in addition to the hammer.
I also know that a lot of posts are made that say he should in some way utilize the sword. Many of these posts are silly. (If you were not already aware of these things, you are now.)
My idea is that after Hammerstorm uses his Hammer Throw ability, he should draw the sword simultaneously, and autoattack with the sword until the cooldown on Hammer Throw is over.
I realize that the biggest flaw here is that a lot of people like to Hammer Throw and then pop their ult, and the ult simply wouldn't be as much fun with a sword instead of a hammer. Proposed solution: part of Hammer's ult graphic includes the hammer reforming in Hammerstorm's hands, so we still have the classic hey kid I'm beating the pulp out of you with a hammer feeling.
Hammerstorm is a great hero. And I think he should either use the sword - and stop the weird comments in the forums about dual-wielding it and the hammer - or lose it.
And that's when we found out that Accursed was in possession not only of a Restoration Stone, but also the token of life.
