Shift in power

9 replies 197 views Edited Apr 19, 2013

Is it just me or do the new relics and items make Ares a MUCH more viable choice for competitive play now? That along with the significant nerf to Hades and the, quite frankly, not altogther needed buff to Poseidon I believe a shift in the multiplayer game is emminent.

Haha as a fan of Big Red myself I'd agree, but he DID have some challenges. for example his magic compared to the other three gods was almost laughable. Now we have something that rewards for having magic itself. and now we get bonuses for staying alive? Cat MadHeads shall roll tonight!

Honestly though Poseidon did not need the buffs he has gotten lol. I love my white mages as much as the next guy, make it a point to save em when I can, but seriously? SSM enoughs enough on the tank buffs haha.  You migjt as well just give them all a sign that says NO so they can beat us with it.

why need magic, when you excel in pure physical damage?

^Not really everyone else had some advantage over him before the patch. I do agree that Ares is a lot better. The relic of determination is absolutely the best relic for him. The wall of flame isn't the best item but it looks really cool. I can't wait to use his new magic.

Ares was my goto beat down build before patch. Jump cut and grapple spam is a good time

personally I'm not as much of a fan of the jump cut. I find the parry, as stupid as some may think it is, preferable and combo able.
