Swiftblade's Way of the Sword:
Level 4 : 36% chance for 2.0x critical strike
Level 4 : 28% chance for 2.0x critical strike
Does anyone else besides me feel like its a little repetitive and silly for Madman to have a nerfed version of Swiftblade's crit?
I mean, at least Puppet and Scout have variations in their forms of crit that make them a little different.
I remember back when Gash had a higher %, and was then reduced for balance reasons... But I don't honestly think that was the right solution...
So I guess I'm just curious, does anyone else think that its okay for there to be a skill that functions EXACTLY the same way, but at a lower frequency? None of the other proc skills in the game fall guilty to this, (Bashes, for example), as each type is either comparable or slightly different.
Madman is a better carry than Swiftblade, as his ultimate increases his attack speed to amazing levels, essentially making the small difference between 28% and 36% less noticeable as he will be proccing his crit A LOT more than Swiftblade.
He's not saying that the skills are unequal. He's saying that it's lame to have two different heroes with the exact same skill, albeit with a different percentage to proc.
I mean in DotA there was at least Chaos Knight's crit which had low % chance, but high multiplier, and with Naga Siren's crit it's the same just the other way around.
Would probably be a cool way to nerf Madman if someone could think of another useful (NON SCALING) skill that wouldn't make him overpowered.
Closed, this is Balance-related
