In my opinion, the nerf to Orbweaver’s chance to summon Giant Spiders was not necessary. I feel like it was done simply due to the fact that the Life and Death weapon from Silver Necropolis was making these teams more difficult and annoying.
I would propose a different solution, such as changing the Orbweaver talent trees, or just reduce the strength of the Life and Death weapon. In my opinion, the weapon needed the nerf, not the class. I still face a lot of grief fighting Life and Death with other hero classes. It’s way too powerful and it’s difficult to stop.
The nerf to Orbweaver didn’t help at all. I was fine fighting a bunch of Giant Spiders before reaching the hero troop when Life and Death didn’t exist. I feel like the best option would have been to change the Life and Death weapon.
Proposed balance changes to the Life and Death weapon:
- Have the weapon only target the last enemy troop, not the last two, OR
- Reduce the weapon’s effect to scale with half magic, OR
- Replace the Enchanting affix on the weapon.
The weapon is a severe pain in the butt to fight, regardless of what class is used with it. I feel like one or more of the proposed balance changes would make the weapon less powerful and easier to fight against without making it completely useless or breaking the theme of the weapon.
That is all. Have a nice day.
