Hades and Poseidon future thoughts etc

27 replies 1690 views Edited Jan 11, 2013

Just wanna know how you guys think Hades and Poseidon will be, in official site it says Poseidon is all-around support and Hades necromancy or something, in new Dev Diary, you can see 2 of their magics respectively, Poseidon has what appears to be a shield made of ice picks but no clue what they do be they damage enemies who get close or absorb damage, Hades had the opposite of Ares Inferno, he goes underground then pops up a la Wraith(I think it's called a Wraith), when full game hits, I expect all those of us playing the beta to be Hades and **bleep** simply for new playstyle........plus I like Purple glow better than anything else Smiley Very Happy Thought on other magics/armors etc? Bump for summoning dead people XD

I think Poseidon's "shield" magic that we see in the Dev Diary will probably absorb dmg. Since Ares has the Demigod magic which is geared toward offense, it makes sense there would be a similar spell that would be defensive minded. Plus I think I remember seeing in an interview w/ Papy where he said that Poseidon would be kinda like a "tanker" type character and Hades would be an "elusive" type character (ex. that underground teleport move we see in the video). That interview was prior to the site update though so things might have changed. This is all just speculation.

 

I agree, the purple glow does look pretty cool. Check out the pic below from the ascension website... appears to be Hades armor and that sword looks fierce!

Found this pic on the site too... possibly Poseidon armor??? (could be generic Hydra armor too)

So any of the other classes wouldn't absorb magic damage? That'll make Zeus the better god...

Poseidon might be a tank/healer/support (they already said support) because we have 2 DDs... but I'd like to see how "necromancy" works in all of this. Maybe support magic? Who knows.

The necromancer is Hades not poseidon. I would like that any of these 2 gods have the abbility to absorb magic or elemental damage, this would make things harder to any Zeus' champs.

I know this, I was talking about the two gods separately.

In the new interview Todd Papy, he said there were 4 types of warriors:

 

  • Physical Power (Ares)
  • Physical Resistance (Poseidon?)
  • Elemetal Power (Zeus)
  • Elemental Resistance (Hades?)

So I think here's how it will balance out:

 

Zeus>Ares, Hades>Zeus, and I'm not sure about the rest lol.

Zeus isnt about elemental power, he's suppose to be a 'magician' class. But don't know why they added that amount of elemental damage. It makes him OP.

I still think there should be a class that can absorb magic damage.
