So moseying around taking a look at the new patch for 3.14, I couldn’t help but pinpoint one thing out that truly stood out as.. well broken to me. If you want to view the rest of the patch notes, check here (though I’m just highlight one portion of it). Apart form the new god and a few tweaks here and there, lets take a look at the potions rework shall we?
Potion of Magical Might
- Can only be purchased at level 7 or Higher
- This consumable increases your Magical Power by 60 and Cooldown Reduction by 5% for 3 minutes or until you are killed. Also, hitting enemy gods with an ability returns 5% of your Max Mana and reduces the Cooldown of the ability by 1s.
Potion of Physical Might
Can only be purchased at level 7 or Higher
This consumable increases your Physical Power by 30 and Physical Penetration by 5 for 3 minutes or until you are killed. Also, Your abilities apply a 2s damage over time and 20% Slow to the first enemy god hit. Damage is 25% of your Physical Power and ticks 3 times over the 2s.
So letme get this straight, I’m all cool for the fact you cant get these bad boys until your level 7…but you mean to tell me that the magic returns 5% of your max mana and reduce Cooldowns by 1s? FAM, Mages will run you over…or hell damage Guardians. Speaking of damage guardians, I’m still trying to figure out why building them is still ok (they are literal monsters).
Alright it’s just one OP pot that you can keep buying right? Nah bro, lets take a look at the physical portion of it. You give.. 30 Phy power and 5 pen.. ok not really mad at that.. but.. EVERY ABILITY now gives 2s DoT, a 20% slow to the first god hit, and DAMAGE 25% OF YOUR PHYSICAL POWER THAT TICKS 3 TIMES OVER 2 SECONDS? Hi-rez, in what world do you think this is a great idea? The meta suddenly changes where you HAVE to buy these pots to stay relevant in the game. I would of been ok if this was still being worked in the PTS (Public Test Server), but these are OFFICIAL PATCH NOTES. I can almost promise you in 3.15 they will take this out but only time shall tell.
