Defenders 024: Bloodseeker

December 9, 2011


Boom.  Here is swired’s request, Bloodseeker.  Xenono did some pretty cool wallpapers based off of this series.  Check them out my tendency to over-use whitespace gives you a headache.

Ahhh, Bloodseeker.  I think everyone who plays Dota for any length of time has probably gone through the BS phase.  Either where you were playing him, or getting owned by him.  I don’t think he’s really a competitive hero, but can he ever make a mess of pubs.  For the uninitiated, being jumped by Styg alone in the woods is probably going to invoke the “flight” response… with sexy results.

Rupture is a pretty unique mechanic, but once you get over the scare factor, it’s usually just best to wait it out.  Which really makes it sort of useless at higher levels of play, and I think it’s a little weird to have an ability that gets worse as you (and your opponents) get better.

Of course, there are worse ultimates.  I think Drow’s is pretty bad (and by “bad” I guess I mean “totally boring”), and so is Bristleback’s (which is not a bad skill, but doesn’t feel very ultimate).  So, that will be our talking point for today.  What do you think are the worst ults in the game?

    Medusa’s is pretty unreliable. Phoenix’s is another ult that loses power with enemy knowledge. Cent’s is ‘boring’ (but epic). Phantom Lancer’s is more boring but really powerful…

    Blame my poor micro, but Necrolic in-my-ability-restricted-nooblet-opinion has the worst ulti. Yea, they give stun, but its got a 1 second casting time and only does 140 dmg at level 3. Bonus dmg needs recharging, attack range is tiny, and again, it requires micro which I am very lacking. I just dont see this as being as sexy an ulti as other heroes out there have.

    ogre-magi, they should change his ulti, imbalanced compared to krob :/, krob skill 3 = ogre ulti, they are quite the same since they both improve skills
    Can you make naix please :-)

    Old Razor’s ult was quite useless. 60/90/120 damage every few seconds to a random target. I think it was this ability that served as one of the reasons for remaking the old razor.

    I hope your next art will be Jakiro :)

    IMO Necrolic’s ult the worst. And N’aix have pretty bad too. HoN hero Parasite have better version of N’aix ult just as usual ability.

    Ozzy, really? N’aix ult is useless!?!? You’re understimating him!! Think about it: Get Raijin nad N’aix= N’aix ults Raijin(YEAH HE CAN DO IT”), which jumps around the enemy heroes. When N’aix leaves Raijin he gives 400 damage on a 700 radius!
