  1. Problem with HS is just that you need to know the static farming routes so you can get the most optimized GPM because Hammerstorm gets so easily outcarried if you don't reach a high GPM imo! (kinda saying his selling point is that you can reach high GPM with him).
  2. Additonally, it looks like AMD is just crushing Intel now with its new AMD ryzen 5XXX series so.
  3. Yeah. Was thinking about how much price worthy it would be so maybe the 5600X is probably better.
  4. I think I will go for the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X. I wish there was someone who had a similiar processor to this one who could benchmark HoN but I haven't seen one yet but I think it will be a good choice in the end. Thanks for the help!
  5. You usually if you have good farm with lets say a Wildsoul you can get it sub 6-minutes, but usually early in the 6-minute mark. But I still think you guys are just thinking about the item as a gold item but should rather think about it as an EXP item, since there are no other item besides Tome of Elements that increases exp by its effect. I am not sure about if the 1750 gold at 4 mins would be possible for a Wildsoul for example as you get around 1200 gold around the 4 min mark getting the buildup item for it. Another buff could be to revert it to its old form where it required 2x Gloves of t
  6. Was looking for that video the other day but couldnt find it
  7. What do you think is the better choice? Going for a strong Intel CPU or just going for one of the latest AMD Ryzen's?
  8. Well, it sure help to have better FPS since if you have 50 fps on normal gameplay, you will have like 20 fps in teamfights where the game is freezing up randomly etc which can affect gameplay. And also HoN is pretty beautiful when it runs on ultra in high framerate.
  9. So is this the CPU to go with overclocking or without? What about the 11th gen of intel CPUs?
  10. as I've mentioned, I thought it was more of an EXP item than a gold item.
  11. So I've been trying now to research about best single core CPU's but seems pretty hard to see that ATM. Maybe you have a list since you were looking at the benchmarks? Maybe in the end I should just buy a new setup as a whole and go on a higher budget since it seems like the best solution atm. Probably going to have a higher budget on the CPU than the GPU for this game.
  12. Speaking of Grinex, I still think the nerf was still too minor. But I stopped caring about mentioning this hero as he have been untouched for a long time. My suggestion coming on top off my head without thinking it properly would be for example that his invis on early levels has only 1 charge instead of 2 charges and maybe the movement speed should be less, could compensate with having longer duration on the invis. ATM the frustrating factor is that he can constantly go invis using 2 charges but even if you have dust he is just too fast to chase.
  13. That was like the only counter you had left to Legionnaire before they nerfed Grimoire of Power (the self purge part where you use it on yourself when he taunts).
  14. Are you sure about the CPU Frequency? I have a AMD FX 8370 which has the clock frequency of 4.0 Ghz and I still have struggles to run hon unless I put on low settings. I see people with lower CPU Frequency than me and runs with 150+ FPS without any problems. Maybe ElementUser could give a point on this topic as he has been part of the development to see what you can do to get highest possible FPS in this game.
  15. IMO, I think double kongor feels more balanced and less risky to go for Kongor. I wish that the bananas were still in the game but thats just me. The buffs are pretty good compared of dropping a Token of life. Usually pretty good when the enemy is turtleing and you cannot push properly so the solution is to take both kongors and go all in on getting the barracks.
  16. Don't forget Torturer and Electrician.
  17. you basically get Alchemist Bones for level dependent heroes as the main selling point with this item is just to get more experience from the creep, basically using it on the biggest hard camp creep or catapult. As I've seen ingame people do the mistake of using it on a low creep just for the gold. There are so many other farming items that you want to get over Alchemist Bones anyways (Thunderclaw, Runed axe, Lightbrand) which fits for most of the heroes. You get Alchemist bones on heroes such as Wildsoul, Shadowblade (not that often anymore but he sure is compatible with it to get
  18. Thanks for the patch ElementUser! Good decisions once again similiar to 4.9.2.
  19. Hello! This have probably been discussed before but I couldn't find anything specific but I am going to ask this again. I was wondering about what do you guys think are good specs for HoN in order to achieve high FPS in this game? As on the current website this is what is shown: RECOMMENDED: Processor - 2.4GHz Core 2 or i3 / 2.2GHz i5 or i7 / AMD 3500+ or faster RAM - 2.0+ GB for Win XP / 3.0+ GB for Win 7 Video Card - 256MB Geforce 7800+ or Radeon X1900+ OS - 32-bit Windows XP, 64-bit Windows 7 While my own specs are way better than this, it still gets average perfo
  20. I don't know. If it was, did it perform well?
  21. Weird suggestion you may think, having HoN, a F2P game on a pay on-demand service? Well I think that would be amazing to have as for me and multiple other people have some framerate issues with HoN and having it on GeForce Now could avoid having those issues. There are LOL and DotA 2 already on GeForce Now so I guess why couldn't HoN be there?
  22. This patch was pretty good so far. Kinda reminds me of what playing hon was like for a year ago or two, basically it felt stable in a way that you did not for example pick something just because it would guarantee the win but instead pick in terms of counterplay/what you like to play Even though Grimore of Power is in the right direction with its new activation, it just feels a bit awkward that you have to activate it I think. Just thought the legacy version of Grimoire of Power was pretty awesome on a hero like Pebbles or Pyromancer, but now on Pebbles for example, it seems prett
  23. I think the artillery nerf was on point. The main problem I had with him was that during early game, on 1v1s in lane by just autoattacking vs Artillery's LRM, he would win like 90% of those fights. Still helps out with Artillery vs Suicide. You don't need the support to box out when the Artillery can snipe them away with LRM. What I meant with before was that he dealt too much damage with his LRM, which is kinda strange how a carry can be so strong earlygame when carries are supposed to shine later in the game.
