So I've seen a lot of complaints bout how Zeus should be nerfed. Even though I play Ares, I don't think he should be. We have no idea what the other gods play like yet and if you're getting destroyed by Zeus players a lot, maybe it's the fact that they know what they're doing. I come in first in 90% of the FFa games I play because I know how Ares works and how to shut down Zeus players. I get my **bleep** kicked often but that's just how games work. I'm sure I'm not alone in this so let's try to avoid being a community that has to complain when we get our **bleep** beat. Happy holidays and hopefully I'll see you all in game when the servers come back online.
See, I would say Ares has a ton of advantages in damage dealing (which he should) but you know as well as I do that once something is nerfed then something is buffed and it's a never ending stream of something being broken. Just leave it alone and we can just call people who use it at launch a noob and be done with it.
I try to level up items but a lot of the time I use ful Ares armor with the gladiator hammer and I see that I have a great defense and I do some absurd damage. I've gotten screwed over by Zeus magic a whole bunch but I have never personally felt that he was broken. Maybe it's just the way I play, I'll do some experimenting when the servers kick back in.
Well, I've had the same idea trying to use full ares such as his hammer and his full set of armor but when I go into a match and I get hit I just lose health like crazy. So I start stacking defense and you know to be honest, you can shave off a tiny bit of offense and gain a ton of defense and it helps so much more.
Before they nerfed the damage, it was more even...you lost 105 damage for 150 defense but yet it still doesn't feel much. Idk whether I'm just blind or what but the only reason I don't use Zeus is because I don't really know how to play him...I want to have high def yet want to boost my e. power and p. power and I get so confused. I just go back to Ares and put on some good damage and defense and it's much simpler.
Just up the hell out of your elemental power with Zeus. He's best used as a magic glass cannon. At least when I play with him.
It's because Zeus is more OP cause of AoE attacks and silencing, relics and items are just too good too, Elemental Power affects anything with an element, Physical power on Ares ONLY affects normal attacks and L1+ as L1+/\ is considered an element on most his weapons I think( Blade of Ares, one that raises spikes from ground etc). I think the best way to counter would be to have Poseidon and Hades have high Element Resist and Phys Resist respectively
I think Stats don't change anything. I usually go with the armor I find most cool and still win the match!
Stas do affect everything, I lasted way longer with Skorpian armor + BoA cause cooldown than my normal Zeus but at the same time wasn't killing as fast.....but you brought up another problem which is why special armors like Cyclopean have to suffer......I would rock Cyclopean and Skorpian on my Ares and Zeus respectively if I didn't sufer in some aspect...
