In the latest patch, we've seen a buff to the move speed of Corrupted Disciple, as well as a buff to the move speed of post haste.
I've been doing some testing and a post haste, combined with a frostburn with level 4 static discharge leaves cd at a grand total of 510 ms, ALL the time, basically leaving him perma-hasted. Throw in a storm spirit and he maxes out (Though that's not really all that viable).
Personally, i'll be trialling this on my next cd game for sure. What's everyone else's thoughts on this? A post haste on him as well as the slow from Frostburn turns him into the best chaser in the game, no doubt.
My usual build with cd was ghosts>Hotbl>Shamans if needed>frostburn>frostwulf/geos>heart, so the post haste can still integrated, you just stick with regular marchers till after completing hotbl, then finish up.
thing is CD needs to be in on the action in teamfights due to the nature of his skillset which is why i'd take a shrunken head over post haste on him any day of the week but being able to run around at max movespeed is a nice gimmick if that kind of thing floats your boat. Could just go warbeast and enjoy the same effects much earlier on for 16 seconds a pop
Just get assasins shroud.
Conduit and run after them in stealth, right when it hits max BAM crit half their health. Best build in all of hons)
Well, it was supposed to balance him out (in some way), but for me, cd was already balanced. As for myself, i would roll for steamboots(more hp/ attack speed) or phase boots (more MS and dmg). For now i've made Post Haste for Support heroes and Soul Stealer. Perhaps i will try them for CD aswell, but it depends on the situation of the game. If i get a sloppy farm, then i'll rather go sb/pb, but if opposite team has no slows or only a few of them, i'll try post haste.
Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night
I think Helm and Headdress are even more viable on him now because of his AGI gain buff, which lets him do more damage than before, thus reducing the need to get DPS items.
Movie, comic and game reviews from yours truly:
and as for shroud: it's actually better when you overload -> conduit -> shroud
that way you're reducing armor and gaining copious amounts of damage for when you're finally ready to 2 shot them.
very gimmicky and overall a terrible build, but fun for a minute or two.
Phase Boots gives you an insane amount of movespeed already. Don't get Post Haste for the tiny difference in movespeed. If you wanna be Speedy Gonzales, do Phase Boots, a survivability item, and then Frostburn.
CD with ghost and frostburn/geo was already one of the faster heroes thanks to his passive. He was already almost unkillable without a 3v1 or 2v1 with a lot of cc, because if you didn't kill him while stunned he'd just run away from you.
+10 MS buff (which is more like 15-20 MS when you activate phase + passive + frostburn/geo passive) basically makes him a wildsoul sprinting around everywhere
