TL;DR - I feel Gorgon a bit UP in Evolve stage 2 b’cuz every supports have shield burst and everyone have passive hp regen, so lets share our skill/perk build and thought about her in current state
Too long; pls read : Hi, im just average Wraith and Gorgon player with 400+ play hours. After I test my 2 main monster against veteran hunters in my group. I feel Wraith is balanced but Gorgon is too UP.
IMO, Gorgon tools arent working well in this current patch. Her concept is still stacking and spread DoT to hunters, so she lack burst damage. The result is against good hunter Gorgon gonna spend the longest time to make some hunter down.
In last patch b4 Evolve become Evolve stage 2, I felt she was on borderline between balanced and OP but in this patch every hunters have 15 hp regen/sec when not taking ‘health’ damage for 2 seconds and every support have that ‘putang ina mo’ (Asian DotA2 player know this word) shield burst that can negate almost all of Gorgon’s DoT stacking.
I know, I know that new player is suffering against Gorgon and think she’s OP but honestly she is not OP at all. When you know how to play as a ‘team’ and fight her correctly, she’s just a simple annoying spider(or ant?) but not that deadly. Spider trap OP? nah nah nah… trust me, against good team no one gonna let that cute spider survive longer than 3 seconds. But Mimic damage is really high you know? support just press 4 and Gorgon player gonna cry for most of her DoT stack vanishing in vain, and imagine when that support is Bucket… 2 shield burst OMG!!! T.T
So I think maybe my the problem is my skill/perks build
this’s my current build when I play Gorgon
Perks : Haste / Insatiable Hunger / Evolved Recovery
result : Movement Speed + 23% / Feeding Speed +80% / Cooldown Reduction 17%
S1 : WS 1, AS 3 /or/ WS 1, AS 1, ST 1, Mimic 1
S2 : WS 1 , AS 3, ST 1, Mimic 2
S3 : WS 1, AS 3 , ST 2, Mimic 3
im still experiment about Gorgon skill/perks build to a better build, so let’s share our build and thought about her in this current patch, thanks =w=
