Extremly dependant on early game and line up, wich is good to see a niche hero for a change ^^
Also his ult does not work vs hide, intentional? I thought it was a heal :S
he commented saying parasite is a terrible hero on release and it became a first pick ban hero. He says right now chronos is the worst hero in the game in the chronos thread and then he is picked up and carrys every game loda plays with him to victory.
you cant just say a hero is terrible because of random pub knowledge you have of playing a hero. i think this hero will fit his role and that is counter healer heavy lineups. If you remember about a year ago a top tier american strategy was run accursed, soul reaper demented shaman tri healer normally with a defiler. In this situation this hero would be a perfect pick being able to focus the defiler without receiving any heals. Even these days we often see double healer setups with ds and ophelia/nymphora.
even tho the fact that his nuke falls off late game he has a true damage aura that is beyond stupid in solo situations.
its to early to say how strong he is and hence why this is speculative and comments such as hur dur hes worst then the rest of the heroes in the hero pool are just dumb.

Look for my highlighted text (important information) and grey text (interesting but not required information).
A pathetic version of DommBringer from Dota. He is so easily kited and seems so slow. Can't yet say if he is in need of some epic buffs or not. Need to play him some more.

He gets kited like a ***** yet his slow is melee range. Curious design choices here.
Allow me to direct you to http://honmatch.com/hero_use and the awesome 25% win rate of Parasite and less than 1% usage rate of Chronos.

I though Sand Wraith is worst carry hero now .. :P He's like totaly nerfed imbalanced... Noone plays him at all :P, and also Parasite is just annoying **** that's hard to deal with early game ;P
About Salforis, I dont think that hero is overpowered. That's true his aura is 'OP' 1v1. but, lets be clear, all 'main' fights are 5v5 at least, not to mention any creeps from Puzzle box, or Balphagores/tempest/whatever units, which makes that aura deal 10 damage . What may be 'OP' also is his ultimate, WHICH can be disabled from killing cuz id 'deny' option, so, yea he need some buffs on first skill, cuz it's pretty useless, i never use taht skill even :P
After playing him a couple of times it seems that he should generally only be picked as a counter in the same sense that as of now a character such as vindicator is most viable against a line up consisting of "Combo" characters such as MK or pebbles.
I'm also of the opinion that the slowing component of his W is too hard to land, primarily due to the wind up animation. It might be nice to consider rolling the slow into the buff itself. For example applying the slow (not necessarily the damage) in a cone around the target. Something akin to gladiators whip
Just a thought
Parasite outcarries too much. No hero should be viable with codex 50mins in - one shotting anything without magic immunity.
Sorry Macro, it's just too good.
Initial concept was much more interesting. But once we got Salforis as he is...
After preview I thought he will be really strong - high damage nuke, regeneration, tankiness, life leech attack and great and kinda unique (for HoN) ult that punishes tanky heroes like Ra and Zephyr and makes healers useless.
But, in fact, he seems UP, apart form his ult. He supposed to be... Some kind of DotA's Doombringer? Ult is comparable, other skillset is worse, stats are worse. Some kind of Ra? Nuking power and passive DPS are nowhere near. Some kind of Electrician? Utility and passive DPS are nowhere near. Some kind of Gladiator? Not even funny.
And yes, I'm aware that Doombringer is OP as hell, and tanky-dps like Ra's one isn't good, but Salforis is bad. In his current state he can be picked for two reasons - to counter mass heals or to counter Ra and Zephyr. But he is a one-trick pony, and his trick doesn't even have relatively short cooldown, unlike Deadwood's one.
I'm not a huge fan of fat heroes with passive DPS (except Electrician which I like), I don't want to see Salforis as another unstoppable force, but he should be buffed.
Granted LS is actually decent in the early lane phase versus melee because of Life Tap. Versus any competent ranged hero you'll never ever hit him (assuming he knows what LS spells even are, did not seem like Tremble knew).
So at the ten minute mark Tremble's farm was crushed, sitting at 130 gpm while you were hitting the 350 mark. However, 15 minutes later Tremble was sitting at 400 GPM with you having dropped off to below 300.
I don't think that single game shows all the strengths or weaknesses of LS, there was not a single "true" (5v5) team fight the entire game. The other team got picked off every single time leading to a stomp.
His ultimate though; it's very good versus hero's like Doctor Repulsor.
625hp base on him. wut
level 7 with bottle/chalice and int steamboots - 948hp, 585mana, 350(400)ms(ouch), 3.88 armour(ouch)
level 7 with phase and ring of sorcery - 948hp, 794 mana, 360(396/459)ms, 4.3 armour
phase and ros look like fairly clear winners on him.
4-1-1-1 gives him 710 burst + 70+autoattack (65-80 at that point) with whatever damage the aura does.
Q and W have fairly large cancel-able backswing animations.
He's probably not as bad as it seems.
Let me spell it out plain for you
Angry people complain about the things I do
I'm not changing direction, I'm stepping my game up
Maintaining my name, the same way I came up.
Truth is, I thought it mattered
I thought that music mattered.
But does it? Bollocks!
Not compared to how people matter.
I've been playing him for 3 straight days......
I'm 1900 and played dota since 04
Oh my god!!! I've lost so many games with him
trying every single possible role you can think of...
He's only good for TWO THINGS
*Owning early game (0-15mins)
* His ult
THAT'S IT I REPEAT THAT'S IT!!!!
And btw....WHY does his ALT avatar suck so much balls?
Have you seen the animation and quality on it?
It's so0o0o0o bad
