Is it intended for Val heals to = invincibility?


#1

If Val is healing the Trapper, and as Goliath I focus on the Trapper, is it intended for the Trapper to be invincible?


#2

No, it’s intended for you to switch to the Medic if you know the Trapper is being healed.

You’re being countered by a team playing to their strengths and you’re not adapting by switching targets to put pressure on others.


#3

Also you should out dps her healing if you’re attacking her constantly it just slowe this way


#4

Also, she needs LoS on the target. Knock the Hunter down a cave/pit around a corner and it’s free meats.


#5

Lol invincibility ? I wish


#6

@MaddCow, @Slewey, I know that already. Im not asking about proper tactics.
Im asking if my dps as a Goliath is higher than Val’s heal. (specifically what is intended by the Devs)

@evolv, If the trapper can not be killed through Val’s heal then the trapper is essentially invincible.

@Magik_boom, I asked because I could not. I was unable to kill the Trapper through Val’s heal, despite starting at full health and armor. I was able to reliably keep damage on her as well.

EDIT:
It is also an important distinction to make, when deciding target priority because being able to get the arena dome down ASAP is vital to the monster.


#7

Trapper can be killed all you have to do is mix an ability in combat… It’s not invincible at all lol?


#8

@evolv, I was mixing in abilities. Flame breath the charge and the leap to be specific.
(Im sure I hit her with the charge at least 5 times.)


#9

burst damage heavily counters val’s heal. throw some rocks up in there.


#10

@RpiesSPIES, So your suggesting my ability set was wrong? (did not have rock throw as I was still stage 1)
I will try that.


#11

Stage 1 your attacks are fairly weak regardless, no surprise that val’s heal seemed so strong, as well. Not saying your build was wrong, but some things are made to counter others :slight_smile:


#12

People prefer to have 2 abilities at stage 1. One of them will have 2 points in it, so it will do more damage, and actually hurt Hunters. Unless you find a perk that will help you with damage or cooldown on abilities, it’s really hard to down anybody with organized team. I’m no “expert” in Monster play, but i have few fights under my belt :wink:


#13

Isn’t the heal rate 5% HP/sec?
Personally I never focus Val. I just beat the living shit out of the closest hunter.
If Hank is there, I would focus him first, tough.


#14

Theres your problem you arent going to kill anything with 1 point abilities at stage 1 if you just focus one person. She can only heal one at a time unless she wants to get in your face with a healing burst. Spread the damage around and stay mobile, then watch Val struggle to keep everyone alive.


#15

I’d actually recommend focusing on one hunter until he/she dies or pops a shield.


#16

But if you have 3 one point abilities (like one in flame, charge and leap) it takes a while to down one focusing it, especially if that one is getting healed and sheilded and you lose a lot of health that way at stage 1.


#17

Fighting as stage one is mostly self defense tough.
Also, you should probably choose two points in one skill and one point in another when you first start a match for the utility. However the cooldowns are short enough to kill a hunter having just one skill.


#18

And if you spread it around then you can focus one while val is trying to heal the others and keep switching targets, you’ll always have a low health hunter to put the final strike in. IMO ofcourse, every tactic is valid, what ever works for you man.

And i agree I usaully go two in leap one in charge, the mobility and damage is great for those stage one fights when you dont wanna take that many hits.


#19

Also, Val’s healgun cannot heal forever !.. (ok, it’ll feel like forever, but if you don’t want to change your target, you’ve got no choice !)


#20

Val’s healing gun heals 5% health per second. If you can’t out Dps that you are doing something wrong.
