Conju is also known for running damage increase- Combine damage increase, and elite mastery, and a 2v+1bm+3ls will do just under 1500 damage. Instantly. Following it up with a heavy (ever checked the range of a stage 2 krakens melee, btw?), or ANY melee really for that matter, will down the hunter- Within about 1-2 seconds. Of course, the kraken could just also snowball you a couple of times before setting things up- which is all he needs to do, for this combo to down (and even with the snowball drop off damage for range, a couple is really all he needs from anywhere)
When using the ACTUAL combo in question
A stage 1 elite kraken, with damage increase, can dish out 1663 damage, all under 2 seconds after the first ability lands. This is stage 1.
If theyre not taking damage increase, itll do 1514 damage. Again, stage 1.
As for the banshees themselves, without getting Too into details- Theres ways around this.
This counter, shooting bullets at krakens head to destroy banshees almost immediately after they leave his mouth, doesnt really work.
They have half a second of invulnerability to them. This doesnt sound like much, but an invulnerable banshee can cover a lot of distance in this time frame. Its not hard to get familiar with the distance they can go “before theyre vulnerable”, and use this to your advantage as a kraken. Spitting them behind the person youre going after, for example. You can plink at the banshee coming towards you all you like, by the time its vulnerable, itll be behind your back. Leaving you the option of trying to 180 it and shoot it (youll have half a second to do so), or hoping your team does it for you.
Which causes it to explode behind you.
Which sets you up for particular things…
A lot of people seem to be under the impression banshees were nerfed because you have to put points into them now to be able to spit more of them out. But this seemingly simple change, has had some rather “interesting” side effects that I dont think were intentional. Banshees are much stronger than they were before. IMO of course.
