I generally rush Nullstone with Ghost Marchers. Works better than any other build I have tried. Give it a try sometime.
This is how ALL ARTS devs balance their games.
And THIS is how you shut down Pimp Slayer
I have played him the other day just to try out since he's forgotten just to realize what a sh*t hero he is.
1. No disable.
2. No escape mech.
3. Not much damage output (compared to other nukers/dpsers).
4. Squishy early game.
5. Sh*t attack animation.
6. Needs loads of farm to be useful.
Yeah, I don't see a reason why he would be picked unless it's to troll in a "A lot of healers" line-up but even then I'd find better options.
He is in fact very good to counter the tank-meta-game we are in. His ult is amazing past lvl 11, and by that time you have boots and astrolabe at least.
Though, in laning phase he doesnt offer anything another hero cant do much better.
I love that hero, but he does need more farm than others to be super effective.
About build: Steamboots>Astrolabe>Null Stone/Sheepstick/Frostfield Plate.
Check my hero, and give feedback. Would appreciate a lot
Since then everything you have questioned has actually been adressed, cheers for the feedback i hope you tune in again soon!
oh and stream just went live, feel free to observe and suggest builds etc
In other news: I find the stats, armor and +ms on grives combined with the bonus to pushing power effect really makes them outshine the other options

i find dsham is a better pick in every single aspect from support role to carry role.
Wait'll you get out of the 1500 bracket and people can actually last hit, then you'll notice how bad SR currently is.
He needs huge amounts of farm, but he can also farm fast from lvl~8 on. Get a babysit for laning phase, get someone to stack your jungle, and after you flashfarmed your core start pushing and teamfighting. He can be really strong that way. If he gets shut down early, or his team sucks, or they prefer farming over pushing, or they nuke his farm... Once he falls back, any competent team will focus and instanuke him every teamfight. So yeah, strong given the right circumstances, but trash if countered or stopped.
His passive is rediculous actually. Think about, it, 1% of 5 enemies' health? Lets say the enemy team is averaging 2000 health late game, which is being quite generous, your passive is giving you 100 additional DPS at no cost. You know you're good when you can play Ancient-Only jungler reaper. So much ****ing money.
